General Interest Article
We are living in a very progressive age - one which when compared with that of our forebears, is filled with advantages for our welfare and enjoyment that challenges the attention of every thoughtful person. That knowledge is power was never a more self-evident truth than it is today, and science, which is simply classified knowledge, is every day coming more closely in touch with human lives, and ministers to us in innumerable ways undreamed of a century ago. Just how great our debt is for all this it is difficult to say. Captain Roald Amundson, that modern Viking whom all the world delights to honor, says, "We must realize that all we have and are we owe to scientists, those patient searchers after knowledge."
