Russian Astronomers


    THE Polish journal Acta Astronomica, in its July issue, states that the following members of the staff of the Pulkovo Observatory have been imprisoned: I. A. Balanovsky, N. I. Dneprovsky, B. P. Gerasim-ovic (director), P. I. Iaschnoff, B. W. Noumeroff (director of the Astronomical Institute at Leningrad, who is believed to have been shot), N. W. Zimmer-mann. The Editor of Acta Astronomica states that it would give him great pleasure to be able to refute this statement, a sentiment which we are sure scientific workers everywhere will echo.
