of policies in support of sci

In the second of three
Montgomery Lectures the
executive officer of the
American Association for the
Advancement of Science
spoke on "Science in the Fed

The question of over-all top
level guidance for the govern

the most important and con
fusing problem of federal re
sponsibility for science, Dr.
Wolfle said.
A new Federal Council for
Science and Technology,
which has not yet met has
been established to provide

will consist of representatives
of departments and agencies
with major scientific interest,
he explained.
Dr. Wolfle suggested estab
