It has been called to our attention that our announcement of the granting of the Third Intermediate Sugar Research Foundation Award to Leslie F. Wiggins (Science, May 14, p. 502) was incorrect in several respects. The Imperial College of Tropical Agriculture, mentioned in the item as being located in Kingston, Jamaica, and as having been "recently created," is actually located in Trinidad, B.W.I., and has been in existence for 27 years. We learn that it was founded as the West Indian Agricultural College in 1921 and that its name was changed to its present one in 1924. It was also stated in the announcement that Dr. Wiggins had been appointed research director at the College. His appointment was as director of sugar research under a new Sugar Research Scheme launched in 1947. We regret that these misstatements occurred.
