    Excerpt from Smithsonian Miscellaneous Collections, Vol. 78

    The functions of the Smithsonian Institution as stipulated by the will of the founder, James Smithson, are the increase and diffusion of knowledge among men. In its endeavor to increase the sum of human knowledge, the Institution conducts researches and explora tions, the latter particularly in regions of the earth which have not vet been thoroughly investigated. As the founder's will did not discriminate in favor of any particular branch of science, the Institu tion endeavors to be partial to none, and its activities have covered geology, biology, and anthropology, with all of their various subdi visions; astrophysics, aeronautics, physics, and chemistry. The pres ent pamphlet is intended to present in brief form, illustrated, the purpose and results of the expeditions in the field during 1925. The very limited income of the Institution from. Its private endow ment does not permit of a comprehensive, coordinated program of exploration, and it therefore takes whatever Opportunity offers to cooperate with other agencies in sending out field expeditions. The accounts, although written in the third person, are prepared for the most part by the explorers themselves, and the pictures are taken bv them in the field.
