Bulletin No.1 (continued) Standing Committee on Observational Activities 4. It is hoped that no Centre will hesitate to participate simply because very few of its members are active observers or because its observers lack experience. Collectively we can do more than we could accomplish individually. With someone to co-ordinate its efforts, even a group that c omprises only one member from each of several Centres could soon produce results, and the Co- ordinator will be ready to give all the help requested. 5. It is felt that each National Co-ordinator should have one contact with each Centre. If he were to attempt to correspond with individual observers, he could easily be snowed under. Therefore, where a Centre has more than one observer in any field, the Centre should decide who is to be the contact with the National Co-ordinator. Attached is the list of Fields of Activity and National Co-ordinators appointed to date. You will be hearing in due course from each of the Co- ordinators. It is important that these Bulletins be brought to the attention of the members who are interested in observational work. We are sending this first Bulletin to the President and the Secretary of each Centre and also to the Director of Observations (or Telescopes) where we have the names of such individuals. If your Centre does not have a Director of Observations, would you appoint someone to act as your main contact with our Committee and advise us of his name and address. Contacts f or the various fields of activity need not be appointed until you have heard from the Co-ordinator and then only for the fields in which your Centre decides to participate. R. V. Ramsay, National Chairman, 3 Medici Court, Standing Committee on Observational Activities Scarborough, Ontario.
