NAVIGATION AND SOCIETY
In his paper, which attempts to define the theme for the Congress, Rear Admiral Ritchie, Director of the International Hydrographic Bureau, considers the outstanding problems of navigation at sea and in the air as they affect society today. He traces the course of navigation from the earliest times when the whole community was closely involved in the art of navigation to the present day when society is largely ignorant of the means whereby the aircraft used for its transport and ships which carry its life-blood are navigated. The Institutes of Navigation, he concludes, are well placed to develop professional education in navigation so as to keep pace with the explosive rate of technological advance.
