In the legend to Fig. 3 in "A new method for studying the atom" by S. Bashkin (21 May, p. 1047), the initial energy of the bromine ions should have been given as 107 electron volts. In Fig. 4, the two microphotometer tracings should have been aligned so that the peak between 4800 and 4900 Å in the lower tracing would be directly beneath the peak labeled Hβ, N III (9) in the upper tracing; the wavelength scale in the lower part would then also apply to the upper part of the figure.
