IF YOU TALK TO A British physicist, one of the problems he is likely to speak about is the failure of British universities to supply enough physicists to industry and the failure of industry to attract, use and hold those it gets. Having bumped into the problem frequently when I was in Britain in 1966, I went back again recently with the special intention of asking about it. The problem remains; many persons are worrying about it and studying it; correction programs are in operation; others are starting or being planned.
