MAIZE GENETICS COÖPERATION

To Maize Geneticists:-
A number of maize geneticists have already sent in their items for the annual Co-op News Letter, and many of you probably have your contributions in the mail now. The final date for the receipt of material for this 1938 Letter is January 31st.
In the circular letter of November 17, 1937, I discussed the proposed collective publication of linkage data in such detail that the cardinal points were apparently lost in the shuffle. In brief, the plan is that linkage papers, any one of which in itself would not be sufficient for separate publication, will be sent to the Secretary of the Maize Genetics Cooperation who will group them in much the same manner as in BIOLOGICAL ABSTRACTS and send them to the Editor of GENETICS for publication. Each unit paper must be written as if it were to be published independently. No alterations or additions will be made by the Secretary of the Co-op.
In order to be included in this collective publication, your paper must be received by the Co-op not later than March 31, 1938.
