The Office of Naval Research has announced the continuation of its program for limited support of pure research in astronomy and astrophysics, and an advisory committee of the National Research Council will recommend specific projects to be supported. Average cost of projects should be about $3000, with a maximum not appreciably in excess of $5000. When a project is selected for support, negotiations will be entered into for a contract between the U.S. Navy and the institution at which the research will be conducted. The advisory committee recommends that maximum overhead charges for these relatively small projects should not be in excess of ten percent.
