Excerpt from Report of S. P. Langley, Secretary of the Smithsonian, Institution, for the Year Ending June 30, 1905

The Smithsonian seat in the Naples Zoological Station has been continuously occupied for the greater part Of the present vear and, as heretofore, the reports submitted at the close Of appointments. Mention the exceptional Opportunities for Special research afforded at Naples.

TO avoid the confusion and inconvenience likely to result from the duplication Of appointments, Doctor Dohrn has recently made a request that two students Should not be assigned to Naples at the same period without previous consultation with the management of the station. In order, therefore, to meet the wishes of the always courteous and accommodating director, it is desirable that those wish ing to occupy the Smithsonian seat Should enter their applications as long a time as possible in advance Of the period decided on. This. Will permit the necessary correspondence in regard to each appoint ment, when, as is not infrequently the case, there are more applicants than can be readily provided for, and 'will perhaps also at times afford the Opportunity for the extra occupation Of an unassigned seat.

It may be added that appointments covering twelve months Of the year - June 30, 1905, to June 30, 1906 - have already been approved, but as two students are to be received during the same period for one limited appointment, it may be possible to approve additional brief sessions during the year. AS before announced, applications for the ensuing year may be taken up for consideration at auv time within Six months of the period desired.

The appointment of Prof. J. B. Johnston, Of the University Of West Virginia, terminated March 1, 1905. Mile at Naples Doctor Johnston Obtained and prepared a large amount Of material for future experiment and study. Being an experienced teacher, he hopes to embody the results so far secured in a more complete and exact account Of the brain, which will be incorporated in a text-book on The Nervous System Of Vertebrates, now in course of preparation.
