. According to an announcement by
Professor Ralph H. Curtiss, director
of the University observatory, the
building of the University's southern
obseivatory at Bloemfontein, South
Africa, is fast nearing completion.
The site selected for the building
is on the northern section of the flat
summit called Naval Hill, which is
within the limits of Bloemfontein. The
building,=i in, addition to the central
section which supports the 56-foot
dome and contains the 27-inch Lamont
refracting telescope, consists of two
wings. One contains offices, a dark
room, and library; the other storage
and garage space and rooms for a
caretaker. The dome for the observ-
atory was shipped from New York on
August 21, and should now have
reached the African coast from which
point it will have a rail journey of
several hundred miles into the inter-
ior. The telescope is already in
Africa to be erected when the dome is
.Two members have been added to
the southern staff; Henry F. Donner
and Morris K. Jessup, both of whom
were. on the staff of the observatory
here during last year. They sailed
from New York on October 1 and will
reach Bloemfontein after a journey
of five weeks.#
According to Prof. Curtiss the La-
mont astronomical expedition of
which this southern observatory will
be the observing station is building
and planning on a more solid basis
than any previous astronomical expe-
dition into the southern hemisphere. )
With the foundations so well made it
is anticipated that a period of highly
productive research in the skies, prin-
cipally on double stars, will follow
djiring the interval over which the
expedition will carry on its work. The
Expedition will remain in South
Africa for at least eight years.
'The enterprise was planned by the
late Professor Hussey with the finan-
cial support of R. P. Lamont, '91,
president - of the American Steel
Foundries. Lamont, who was a fellow
student of Prof. Hussey, was interest-
ed .in the double star work which Prof.
Hussey pursued in the northern
hemisphere, and began 15 years ago.
to furnish funds for the completion of!
work in the southern hemisphere.
Actual observation, which will prob-
ably begin before the beginning of the
new year, will be carried on by AssQ-
ciate Professor R. A. Rossiter, who
for a number of years was connected
with the observatory in Ann Arbor,
with the assistance of Jessup and Don-
ner. The scientific material gathered
by the expedition will be published in
one or more of the observatory
volumes as a memorial to Prof.<
