When the National Science Foundation and other Federal agencies imposed Fiscal Year 1969 expenditure limits on U. S. universities late last summer, it was expected that the impact would create extensive difficulties, especially because the cuts came too late for anything but emergency measures. This view has been corroborated, at least in one area of science, through a questionnaire circulated by the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research and answered by atmospheric science departments at 25 U. S. universities.
