Word has come from the Harvard Observatory that one Eppe Loreta, a librarian of Bologna, Italy, under the Mussolinian sun, has been acclaimed world champion observer of variable stars for the third consecutive year.
Runner-up in the race was Joseph W. Meek, lawyer, of Tucson, Arizona, where nights are very clear. Mr. Meek observed 3,700 different and individual variable stars, while Eppe Loreta saw 5,500.
The star-observers are organized, proudly calling a roll of 142 members from all quarters of the globe. These cooperate with the Harvard Observatory and other great astronomical institutions of the world. The observers are not all old, some of them being in high school. There are all professions, including plumbers, in the roster of the society.
