The principal paper read was that of Professor G. W. Myers, of the University of Chicago School of Education, on "The Neglect of Astronomy in the High School." Numerous species of apparatus, constructed in part by the members of a highschool class, were shown to illustrate the points emphasized in the paper. In the discussion which followed the argument was strongly brought forward that under the present conditions the teacher could not afford to put so much time into the building of apparatus and into out-of-door observations as required.
