Abstract

HAVING been somewhat critical last month of certain aspects of American publicity, we are glad to have an excuse to make amends for this by drawing attention to the beneficence of the trans‐Atlantic readiness to publish and make available to others the fruits of their experience. There is an all‐too‐common feeling in British industrial circles that anyone who puts pen to paper and writes down his knowledge is wasting his time and not “pulling his weight.” This used to be accompanied in many quarters by a. firm tendency to treat as the confidential property of each individual company the experience of its own employees. This attitude has, we believe, to a very large extent been overcome by the War and there is a welcome willingness in industry to help newcomers, and even quondam rivals, by a pooling of knowledge.
