The article reports that the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) had confirmed that federal support for research and development (R&D) for the years 1967-1969 tends to show a leveling tendency. The report titled "Federal Funds for Research, Development, and Other Scientific Activities," contains information on funding data by character of work, agency and field of science. It also notes that the total R&D obligations for 1968 have been estimated to decrease from the preceding year and as a result, the budget in 1969 will probably be even less than 1968.
