We arc organizing a small and very private meeting here at the Center for Continuing Education, University of Chicago, May 16-18. Some twenty scientists will be invited to meet and discuss with the Bulletin staff and its editorial board the direction and subject matter of the magazine for the coming year. The Bulletin has grown to a paid circulation of 27,OOO and it seems to us imperative to share with a representative group of American scien- tistsmme of the questions we have been asking ourselves: should the magazine continue to expand its coverage; should the title be changed to more accurately reflect the contents; what arc the important issues, political and scientific, that the magazine should be prepared to analyze.
