As regards scientific manpower at this writing, the Capitol chit‐chat in Congressional Committees, learned councils, and the Cosmos Club trends toward a pattern adapted to the concept of Universal Military Service and Training. Opposition to UMST from those who are justly concerned lest the training and use of scientists be jeopardized, was somewhat diminished by the testimony of Mrs. Anna M. Rosenberg. The “Defense Department Plan” as described in her testimony as Assistant Secretary of Defense in charge of manpower and personnel problems, which she presented to the Senate Armed Services Committee on January 10th, included more of the thinking of science groups and educators than was generally expected.
