DURING the past three years the Division of Radio-physics, Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization, Sydney, Australia, has made a systematic attempt to detect radio emission from a number of the so-called flare stars situated in the Sun's vicinity. Slee, Patston and Higgins1 have described the earlier work and results. Lovell, Whipple and Solomon2 have also recently published the results of a similar flare-star survey conducted at Jodrell Bank. Taken together, these two surveys have established with a reasonable degree of certainty that at least some of the flares on the six red dwarfs examined were accompanied by detectable radio emission.
