Abstract

In 1948 the American Association for the Advancement of Science asked the cooperating academies of science in the several states to encourage larger numbers of qualified students to major in science. Seeking youth for special important service is one of the oldest activities of organized society. The Incas found beautiful maidens whose sacrifice appeased an angry god. The Babylonians trained even their abler captives such as Daniel and his friends for administrative positions. Schools have been founded to train, without charge or for small fees, preachers, lawyers, physicians and teachers as need for such training was evident.
