The best results in teaching, research, regulatory and extension entomology are likely to be obtained where all these lines are united under an adequate administrative head who has a vital interest and wide experience in the second, because such union is apt to eliminate undesirable duplication and its attendant ills and at the same time to assure an administrative head who is fundamentally interested in the science of entomology. Nevertheless the form of organization makes very little difference in accomplishment if the workers are thoroughly interested in entomology and thoroughly imbued with the proper ideals of public service.
