In the obituary on Llyod V. Berkner (News and Comment, 9 June, p. 1349) two erroneous statements were made. Berkner was not ". . . principal administrator of the U. S. part of [IGY] program during its operation in 1957 and 1958" as stated in paragraph 4. In paragraph 9, it is stated that " He was also radio man on the first air flight over the South Pole." Berkner was a member of that expedition, but he was not on that flight. Harold June was the radio operator.
