C. A. West, B. O. Phinney and Anton Lang of the University of California. Los Angeles. and S. H. Wittwer and M. J. Bukovac of Michigan State University conducted the additional research on gibberellins referred to in the above article.

Dr. F. D. Stodola, Northern Utilization Research Branch, USDA, Peoria, Illinois. supplied the gibberellins used in these studies.

The above progress report is based on Project 1175 D.
