Two years ago, the American Association of Physics Teachers appointed a Committee on Apparatus for Educational Institutions to study the serious shortage of good teaching apparatus in this country. The committee has explored many of the problems related to improving the supply of apparatus for the teaching of physics. The committee feels that it can do much more good if the majority of those interested in physics realize the type of problems it is concerning itself with and for that reason it is attempting to draw the attention of those interested to these problems. The members of the committee are: Sanborn C. Brown, Chairman, Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Vernet E. Eaton, Wesleyan University; Gerald Holton, Harvard University; and William C. Kelly, University of Pittsburgh.
