[Sometimes] I read in a newspaper, "The scientist says that this discovery may have importance in the cure of cancer."The paper is only interested in the use of the idea, not the idea itself. Hardly anyone can understand the importance of an idea, it is so remarkable. Except that, possibly, some children catch on. And when a child catches on to an idea like that, we have a scientist. These ideas do filter down, and lots of kids get the spirit - and when they have a spirit you have a scientist. It 's too late for them to get the spirit when they are in our universities, so we must attempt to explain these ideas to children.
