There was a time when people could go West and become empire builders; when there was little competition, but the resources which nature provided so abundantly no longer exist in their vastness. Pioneers and adventurers have skinned the cream of these luxuries. It is necessary now for science and its cohorts to substitute skill, knowledge, and training for the vagrancies of chance and its dependence up- on fate.
