In connection with the plans of the Pulkovo Observatory for removing one of their vertical circles to the southern hemisphere the following recommendation was proposed by Dr Morgan and seconded by Prof. Boss:
“The Commission regards the proposal of the Pulkovo Observatory to establish the Vertical Circle in as nearly equal a southern latitude as possible with great sympathy. We believe this will be of very great value in the improvement of fundamental decimations.”
Dr Lundmark read a report on the programmes for the Lund meridian circle, which programmes include stars of special interest, such as long- and short-period variables, extremely red non-variable stars, B-emission stars, moving clusters, nebulous stars, nuclei of planetary nebulae and of anagalactic objects, etc. The definite programme will contain at least 3000 stars, results for some 400 of which have already been obtained. It is planned to extend the observations to stars in the southern hemisphere as soon as financial conditions will permit the erection of a southern station.
