Abstract:Predictions for the future are extremely hazardous in spite of the wonderful progress of the past thirty-five years. Our present day knowledge of Entomology should be more generally utilized in the schools, particularly the lower grades, since this will develop in the coming generation a more open mind toward improved methods. There is need in Entomology for men with breadth of training, deep convictions, lofty purposes and persevering ingenuity, men who believe in the profession and are capable of convincing others. Do the present day Entomologists compare favorably with the wonderful early workers, both in results and the relative cost of investigations? Is there a desirability of segregating more sharply the experimental and control or police phases? The remarkable results obtained in heat control, vacuum fumigation, etc. open tremendous new fields with numerous practical applications. Preventive control of insects, akin to preventive medicine, has possibilities of great development.
