A SESSION of the International Congress of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences took place in Copenhagen on July 31-August 6, and was followed by a two-day tour through parts of Denmark for members of the Congress who could spare the extra time required. Actually it was only the second time that this most newly fledged of congresses had met, and its great success testifies to the ever-growing interest throughout the world in the study of man, as well as to the immense trouble taken by the Danish organizers to see that everything should proceed smoothly and without any hitch. More than seven hundred members and associates were present, some 29 countries and 177 learned societies and institutions being represented.
