ONE section of the International Congress was devoted to matters coming under such heads as biometry, biotypology and heredity. Opportunity was thus afforded for the discussion of a variety of problems connected with the racial question, of which advantage was taken by the Management Committee of the Groupement d'Etude et d'lnformation "Races et Racisme", an organization which has undertaken the dissemination among the French people of information relating to the fallacies and consequences of the racial doctrines now current in Germany, and is responsible for the publication of the periodical Races et Racisme (see p. 458). Arrangements were made for presentation to the Congress of a number of communications dealing with questions bearing upon "race" and their formal discussion. The following account is based upon a report furnished by the organization.
