"Crafty men condemn studies, simple men admire them and wise men use them; for they teach not their own use; but that is a wisdom without them and above them, won by observation."
Francis Bacon 1561-1626
This is the second issue of the TRE Journal to be sent to Universities and University Colleges, and it is particularly to our new readers, "the wise men", that this editorial is addressed.
The TRE Journal was first published in July 1944 as a secret document to supplement information given on courses to Service and Civilian students at the TRE School, and to provide a means of spreading internally scientific achievements of individuals or groups in TRE. Many factors contributed to the growth of a keen external interest, and it is gratifying to be able to make available to students, research workers and staff at Universities and University Colleges the results of certain studies of workers within this, a Ministry of Supply Research Establishment. We welcome the immediate interest displayed in our work and hope that there will be at least one article in every issue which will be of direct value to Universities which are the symbols in this modern world of a broad and cultured outlook on human affairs. If this Journal can be of the least value in stimulating a keener desire for the interchange of scientific ideas and results of scientific study between Universities and Government Research Establishments it will have accomplished a worthwhile result.
At the same time we must make an apology to certain of our readers who will no longer receive a personal copy of the TRE Journal. While all right thinking men deplore the paper shortage it is a fact that has to be faced. The number of copies of the Journal cannot be increased and it has been decided that, in order to make the Journal available to a wide field of potential readers the number of personal copies must be reduced. Copies of the Journal will always be available through their library organisation to such readers as used to receive a personal copy and who no longer do so.
This editorial would be incomplete if it did not record appreciation of the valuable work of Dr. E.K. Sandeman, Editor of the TRE Journal for 4 years, who has now left TRE for RAE Farnborough. It was largely due to his enthusiasm that the Journal has grown into a publication of wide interest and appeal amongst scientific workers.
