SOLAR ECLIPSE, JULY 1963 The National Committee is considering organizing the efforts of interested members who will be able to travel to points within the eclipse path. There are many effects due to a total eclipse that require observa- tion and are within the capabilities and instrumentation of amateur groups. A future bulletin will outline possible plans in detail; however, for the present, the Committee needs to know liar many Centres are planning to organize eclipse parties, or how many individuals are likely to be near the path of totality. The Committee is tentatively considering establishing two observing sites in the Province of Quebec, sufficiently far apart to avoid the possibility of total "wash.out" because of local weather conditions, and favourably located with respect to accessibility and accommodation. Further planning depends upon the response to this Bulletin; therefore, we suggest that the attention of your members be drawn to this matter as soon as possible. Replies and further enquiries should be addressed to: Miss Isabel K. Williamson, 5162 Belmore Avenue, Montreal 29, P.Q. who is Acting Solar Eclipse Co-ordinator in the absence of a permanent Co- ordinator for this discipline. R. V. Ramsay, National Chairman, Standing Committee for Observational Activities
