Where The Money Goes

Where The Money Goes

Some years ago, some doubts were expressed about WSR, as it was not then possible to find out exactly how the money was being spent, and in what countries. However, statements of accounts are now being received regularly, and we publish here the expenditure account for October, 1946 January, 1947. The figures are in Swiss francs, which are about 11.5 to the pound.

Incidentally, Miss Alleyne Crawford, of the Botany Department, is always pleased to answer any questions about WSR.
