SINCE its inception, but a few years ago, the Institute of the Aeronautical Sciences has grown remarkably in the size and distinction of its membership, and the technical value of the papers appearing in its journal is now thoroughly well established. Thanks in a large measure to the organizing ability of its Secretary, Lester D. Gardner, the annual meeting was a great success. For the first time in its brief history simultaneous sessions were held, a method which works out quite well in the specialized atmosphere of modern aeronautics. The great difficulty with the annual meetings of American societies is that they are so huge as to render intellectual assimilation problematical. But the geographic conditions of the United States make it impossible for members from different parts of the country to attend frequent meetings such as those of the Royal Aeronautical Society.
