Astronomy at Oxford during the War



WE have recently received from Prof. H. H. Turner, of the Oxford University Observatory, a collection of papers published during the years 1914–19. These for the most part are reprints from the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, and represent researches carried out during this period by Prof. Turner and various members of his staff, including several volunteer workers who have rendered some valuable assistance. It is, of course, impossible adequately to discuss a miscellaneous collection of papers such as this in any detail, but there are several outstanding features of interest which call for special remark.
