[Letters to Editor]


BY changing the sign in front of the square root of their equation (3), Prof. Offord and Dr. Weiss have made this equation in substance identical with my proposed equation (1.1), though the complexity of the differential functions tends to hide this fact from the eye of the reader. As regards the "scarcely plausible" discontinuity at the rear of the mixed band, which is quite plausible to de Vault (1943), I have convincing experimental evidence which will be published in due course.
