Dr. Paul G. Nahin

Long Beach 14, California
Dear Dr. Nahin:
I shall look forward to seeing you at sometime in the near future.
The question that you raise as to how it is possible for an employee-scientist to contribute effectively to the struggle against war and depression is a very difficult one. I don't know that there is any really sound solution. I feel that it is necessary to compromise — that is, for each man to do what he can, without taking any action that would cause him to become a martyr. I trust that you understand that I do not mean that a man should compromise with his principles, but that he should rather recognize that the practical action that he takes should be of such a nature as to be effective, or his principles will have no value.
With best regards for the New Year, I am

Says everyone involved believes he can do the text with their help of comments, criticisms, and statements of textual needs, explains that Stickler would be drawing up a detailed outline with sample chapters for LP's and other organic chemist's criticism, and believes the length of the letter indicates the likelihood of them achieving their goals and the great deal of hard work to come.

- Pauling delivers his presidential address to the American Chemical Society in which he urges American industrial corporations to support a scientific research foundation that will insure them a steady supply of new products. He also makes clear that he is not sympathetic with the aims of the American Medical Association, for he feels that “a system of socialized medicine in the United States may well be desirable.” Pauling's address causes criticism from both the liberals and conservatives in and outside of the scientific community.
