Two years ago I reported at the Jodrell Bank symposium on the initiation of the Agassiz Station project in Radio Astronomy. At that time the 24-ft. antenna was under construction and the electronic equipment for observation of the 21-cm. line of neutral hydrogen was being built by Harold I. Ewen, who is the co-director of the project. The first successful observations were obtained in the autumn of 1953 and reported early in 1954 (see Bok). Since then two papers have been published giving the results of the first studies by Heeschen and Lilley; a report on the equipment and the basic programme was given by Bok and Ewen, Earlier this year, at the Princeton Meeting of the American Astronomical Society, Bok drew heavily upon the Agassiz Station results in a paper entitled ‘Gas and Dust in Interstellar Clouds’, in which an attempt was made to blend the results of radio and optical research. We note also at this point a joint paper by Heeschen and Lilley in which attention was drawn to the important role of Gould's Belt in the distribution of neutral hydrogen in the vicinity of the sun.
