THERE was silence in the hall as the President rose to address the Congress. " Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen," he said, speaking slowly and carefully, " I can hardly find words to express my feelings. I am overwhelmed when I think of the honour you have done me and how unworthy I am to occupy a position that has previously been occupied by so many much greater men. All that I can say is that it is my wish, and I will make every effort to turn that wish into an accomplished fact, to serve you, the Congress, in every way I can. Ladies and Gentlemen, I am your humble servant." As he retired from the front of the stage and the clapping echoed round the vast dome; I looked around me, wondering how many different nationalities were gathered together to discuss their work, and I thought that, in addition to their many languages, they all were experts in one, that of science, of which I knew next to nothing.
