    A PROVISIONAL programme and a list of sectional presidents (twenty-two in number) have now been issued for the Lige meeting on July 17-22 of the French Association for the Advancement of Science. Arising out of the formation at Cambridge of the new Division for the Social and International Relations of Science of the British Association, an exchange of views between the British and French Associations was arranged, as a result of which it was decided to elect to honorary membership of the Association the president, vice-president, secretary, deputy-secretary, treasurer and secretary of council of the French Association. The latter has now elected to honorary membership the president (Sir Albert Seward), general treasurer (Prof. P. G. H. Boswell), general secretaries (Profs. F. T. Brooks and A. Ferguson) and secretary (Dr. O. J. R. Howarth) of the British Association. The offices of the French Association are at rue Serpernte 28, Paris VP.
