    WITH the year 1931, Prof. Luigi Palazzo closed his long and valued service as director of the Central Office of Meteorology and Geophysics at Rome, in which he followed the late Prof. Pietro Tacchini thirty years ago. With his work as director, he also combined the guidance of the Italian Seismological Society. He is succeeded by Prof. Emilio Oddone, until lately the head of the Geophysical Section of the Central Office. Two months earlier, Prof. G. Agamennone also retired from the directorship of the Royal Geophysical Institute of Rocca di Papa, to which he was appointed thirty-two years ago after the death of Prof. M. S. de Rossi.
