Abstract

In view of the serious limitations in the supplies of paper and papermaking materials, we are appearing this month without our usual jacket, but hope that for the present, at any rate, no further alteration will become necessary. The strain on the world's shipping is very heavy, not only on account of merchant vessels destroyed and enemy's steamers laid up or interned, but also because the needs of the Government of transport for men, munitions and supplies of all sorts, is far greater than ever before during the War and should it be much prolonged, we may expect to find further limitations in our luxuries and comforts, that will bring home still more forcibly how largely dependent we have become on the pathway of the seas for our very existence. Meantime we are also suffering from the control that Germany during the last fifty years has practically gained over many articles of commerce necessary to us, which, had there been a closer cooperation between our science workers and manufacturers need never have occurred.
