As an introduction to the States-General of these Committees, which are to be held from July 5th to gth, 1937, I cannot do better than retrace the history of those years.

When in August 1922 the International Committee 011 Intel lectual Co-operation held its first meetings at Geneva, it found itself in something of a quandary. The Council of the I eague of Nations had asked the Committee three questions How was scientific documentation to beinternationally organised How was international co-operation in scientific research to be pro moted And lastly How was such co-operation to be assured between universities I well recall how, at our very first meeting, under the chairmanship of Henri Bergson, we found ourselves at a loss to know how best to come to grips if I may use a familiar locution with these three problems.

It was at that stage that I ventured to put forward two practical suggestions the first was that a general enquiry should be undertaken into the conditions of intellectual life since the war the second was that assistance should be given to nations whose intellectual life was in danger. And here I should like to quote two paragraphs from our first report, since it was that document which led to the emergence of our National Committees k There is unfortunately no need of an enquiry to prove that there are countries too many indeed whose intellectual life is in danger.

It would be a mere exercise in dialectics to engage in more or less abstract discussions on inter-university relations when ancient and famous universities are on the point of closing their doors, and on the exchange of scientific information when academies and laboratories of the first rank will soon be obliged to discontinue their work. For this reason, the Committee considers that its first duty is to draw the attention of the Council and also of the whole league to the conditions which govern intellectual life throughout a large part of Europe.

First of all there is Russia, where these conditions would appear to be almost desperate. Organisations already exist, however, for the relief of the Russian intelligentsia, and the Committee has notedtheir efforts with keen interest. Accor dingly, the Committee gave special consideration to those nations including some of recent origin which extend from the Baltic to the Black Sea and the Egean Sea.

In all these nations, the organs of intellectual life have suffered injury in varying degrees. Some have been affected only slightly and require little more than facilities for obtaining books and for escaping from their isolation...
