JOZEF KAZIMIERZ LUBANSKI, a Polish physicist who was working at the Laboratory for Aero- and Hydrodynamics of the Technical University at Delft, died on December 8, at the age of thirty-two. After having obtained the degree of magister philosophies at Wilna in 1937, and worked for two years as an assistant in theoretical physics at Polish universities, Lubanski obtained a grant in order to travel to Holland and to work under Prof. H. A. Kramers at Ley den. His original intention was to go to Copenhagen in the following year ; the War prevented this, and for some time he worked with Prof. L. Rosenfeld at Utrecht. A number of papers dating from this period, mostly in Physica, one in the Arkiv for Matematik, Astronomi och Fysik, deal with the properties of mesons and similar particles considered in relation to quantum mechanics.
