Please correct a detail on page 17 of your issue of 4 January. You describe and quote from certain resolutions passed by the Metropolitan Section of the American Physical Society on 9 November; and in the course of your description, you unluckily speak of the position of the "Society" rather than that of the Section. Now, the fact is that fewer than five per cent of the members of the Society were present at that meeting, of which no one had been notified in advance except the members living in and near New York and a few others. The resolutions cannot therefore be taken as an expression of the' Society, even though many—myself included—think that a majority of the Society agree with them.
