MAIZE GENETICS COÖPERATION

To Maize Geneticists:
The call for material for the 1941 issue of the Maize News Letter has been delayed this year much longer than usual. This was the result of considerable uncertainty as to the source of support for the Maize Genetics Cooperation. While we can make no positive statements now, it seems likely that continued support of the Maize Cooperation at Cornell will be forthcoming from some quarter.
Items submitted for the 1941 News Letter should include new linkage data, descriptions of new characters, suggestions on breeding and cytological technique, and all similar material likely to be of general interest, and valuable to have on record.
We plan to print in the News Letter references to all important maize publications since our last issue. It will help to make this list more complete if you will send us the titles of papers in press, with the names of the journals which have accepted them.
The dead line on contributions is March 1, 1941. May we have your contribution soon?
