America Leads in the Scientific World

Those who have watched developments since the war cannot fail to be impressed by the way in which the leadership in almost all branches of science has passed to the United States. Germany has resigned her one time pre-eminence. France, Italy, Sweden and other European countries continue to do good work, but on a relatively small scale.

Per capita I suppose England at least matches our efforts.

Russia’s intense interest in technology and science has not yet carries her to the stage of great achievement.—Arthur H. Compton, in Scribner’s Magazine.
