tactics ot the scientist. When the

mysteries of the
universe or re-
solve things into
parts he calls to
his assistance the
of the microscope.
There before him,
like nil open hook,
lie the secrets of
nature which un-

The uncanny power of the micro-
scope's all-seeing eye has revealed
eonntlee3 seciets for the material and
intolleetifiil progress of humanity. It
has enabled us to study the processes

and more -Military structures, and hot-
ter highways; it has disclosed tlm de-
fects in steel rails and brought us-an
era of safer railway travel; it has
added to Hie food supply of the nation;
in fact, it lias affected favorably near-
ly every activity ot tl'.e human race,

tribution or consumption, in time of
peace or in Lime of war.

have we begun to realize the ail! ra’.uo
of research and analysis and apoly
them in such a wny as to eii-xlunte
the guesswork that was cbaracterii-tv
of industry a few years ago. “Ellniim-'.--
the guess and reach sudooss," might
well be a motto for all of t’.s.
