The International Seismological Association


    THE first meeting, since its definite organisation, of the committee of the International Seismological Association was held at Rome on October 16, 1906, and was attended by representatives of each of the States belonging to the association. The United States having quite recently joined, the only important outstanding countries at present are Great Britain and France. The answer of France has not yet been received, while Great Britain has signified its intention to join under certain conditions, among which the simultaneous adhesion of France is the- only one which at present prevents our country from being a member of the association. Nevertheless, both countries sent representatives to the meeting, M. Bigourdan acting for France and Prof. Schuster for Great Britain.
