This practical use In basic research Is called applied science. Baste researcn cuts across hire a staff of assistants. Congress said the National Science Foundation should have a director—and a staff of scientists and business administrators to run the foundation—and a 24-man board o directors made up of scientists and educators. The director, appointed by President Truman, is Dr. Alan T. Water, man, physicist and formerly chic the' scientist for the office oi naval re of science: chemistry, search. The board of directors is whole field physics, biology, geology.

Most of it, and most of the training of young scientists in basic research, is done in university laboratories. ^There's a limit to the funds the •diversities can put into the research and the development of young scientists. A lot more _ could be done with the help of government money. For five years leading scientists and. educators urged the government to help out. And in May 1950, Congress approved the idea by creating the National Science Foundation. It does no basic research on its own. Its job is to promote basic research, not applied science. Its job is to be done In two ways: 1. Help develop young scientists by giving fellowships to graduate students for study and research in the various scientific fields. U.S. Funds Needed 2. Provide government funds for research which otherwise could not be done.
