(/P~The Midwest Research institute, a new Idea that'.began In Kansas City in 1943, is giving small businessmen the chance to/rub a modern Aladdin's lamp. The lamp is scientific research.

The institute discovered them for him. American research is big business, .-spending well over a billion dollars a year; Research projects are likely to run into large expense figures. . . - - . . . The institute does some big jobs for large industrial outfits, but also takes on the little fellows who come with only. $2,000 or $3,000. This is the unique angle. The institute was the idea of .Kansas City industrial and professional leaders. It was started t tq make industrial research available to six midwest- ern states not equipped with large industrial .laboratories.. The original investment was .$!,250,000 from 400 donors. The business is non-profit, with the purpose that research shall pay- the expenses. Research lias done it for seven years. Nearly 300 research projects have been completed. Sixty per cent of the clients have returned with further projects. The staff numbers 125, of whom SO are professiona scientists. The work is in chemistry, physics and engineering. It has spread beyond the six-states, with big industry jobs and considerable secret military research. The U. S. public health service supports some cancer research. *' Dr. Charles N. Kimball, president of the institute, says: "Many industries have been accustomed to solving technical problems with hacksaws and cut and try methods, It is remarkable how much more can be done by using mathematics, the laws of physics, principles of chemistry and precision measurements."
