International Astronomical Union


THE meeting of the International Astronomical Union at Rome on May 2–10 must be considered an unqualified success. The unique interest of the selected meeting-place was doubtless a useful auxiliary in drawing together so large a number of delegates; upwards of 100 were present, representing England, France, Italy, Spain, Holland, Belgium, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Poland, Egypt, S. Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, United States, Japan, etc.
