Abstract

In the 21st line of the fifth paragraph of the article "Genetic damage produced by radiation," by H. J. Muller, in the issue of 17 June, page 837, the word not was inadvertently omitted. The sentence should have read: "This is why the group of responsible scientists who signed the official report on these investigations in Japan (4) stated that it had `always been doubtful whether significant findings' could be obtained by the methods there used and pointed out that the inconclusive results, although not definitely positive, were at the same time `entirely consistent with what is known of the radiation genetics of a wide variety of [other] material.' "
