To maize geneticists :-
The response to our request for news items has been good. The various contributions which have been received comprise the bulk of this letter. All of the information given in this letter is unpublished and your cooperation has made it possible to place this mass of information in the hands of maize investigators considerably in advance of its publication. We believe you will find this letter interesting and profitable. If its success justifies it we plan to have a similar news letter in the fall of each year so that the workers in the different laboratories can keep in closer touch.
While this corn letter is essentially a list of new information, we shall be glad to include in subsequent letters for this year any facts which you think will be of interest to others.
We wish to emphasize again that the listing of information in these news letters does not constitute publication. The consent of the contributor should be obtained if you wish to cite his data in your papers.
Note: Seed is available for all the new characters listed under the Cornell heading.
