|Abstract||Botanic Garden at the University of Malaya. A plan was submitted by Professor W.R. Stanton, head of the Botany Division, University of Malaya, K.L., to establish a new botanic garden of some 100 acres as a teaching facility and for the benefit of biological education institutes and the general public. It was proposed that the facility is partly self-financing. The locality suggested is the valley behind the Faculty of Science on the campus having a common boundary with the field area of the Faculty of Agriculture to which its functions would be complementary. It will have a permanent establishment of 7 graduates (of whom two at least will have honours), c. 8 technical staff and 50 labourers, clerks, drivers, etc. It will conduct its own husbandry and maintenance. It is proposed as a phased development ultimately containing an advanced laboratory and herbarium and providing a central facility to the Nation for teaching and examination material.|
Let us hope that Prof. Stanton’s laudable initiative will bear fruit. The establishment Fund of about 200.000 str. dollars and maintenance cost of 100-150.000 does seem to come well within the big income capacity Malaysia has from cutting her forests and selling timber.
