"We realize that you can't put a bosom on an enzyme, but these things can be presented Interestingly through the use of caricatures and animation,” said Sigma Xi Program Director Paul . Saltman. n "Saltman vigorously supports Bass's ideas on the visual aids and graphic arts methods of instruction. Concentrating cm the scientific fields, Saltman claims that scientists have made much of their work and theory unpalatable to the public. “We have to inform people in a manner which will enable them to understand such things as the atom and the human body. Anything that will make this stuff interesting and exciting will be a great help to science," he said. Saltman cited Life Magazine as a particularly outstanding example of what can be accomplished through the use of visual aids in the mass communication of scientific ideas. "Their method is the very method that scientists can use among themselves, with the general public, and especially with students,” Saltman said Notice Veterans attending the university under P.L.
