The Annual Meeting of the Cooper Society will be held in 1955 at Asilomar, Pacific Grove, California. Reservations have been arranged for April 21 to 23. John Davis will serve as chairman of the committee on arrangements.
The business manager would lie to advise members that the Cooper Society’s Avifaunas and Music in Nature records donated to schools or public libraries count as tax-deductible gifts. Some members have already made such valuable contributions. Why not make a gift of an Avifauna or set of Music in Nature records to the school or library in your city? We will make a suitable inscription when we mail it for you. Please give exact name and address of the school or library.-C. V. DUFF.
We report with regret the death of C. F. Batchelder on November 7, 1954, at the age of 98. Mr. Batchelder was the last surviving founder of the American Ornithologists’ Union
