Abstract

A meeting of the Royal Society was held
on May 14 at the Tasmanian Museum.
His Excellency Sir Gerald Strickland presided.
The chief interest
of the meeting centred on a paper by Dr.
F. Noetling on "The Stone Implements of
the Tasmanian Aborigines".
Messrs. A.J. Taylor, L. Brownell, C. E.
Webster, and the Rev. J. Heyer were
elected members of the society.
The Acting Secretary (Mr. R. M. Johnston) read a circular which invited the society to send a delegate to London in order to take part in the centenary celebrations of the Geological Society of London.
It was decided that Mr. R.M. Johnston would be the perfect representative. Mr. A.G. Webster seconded the motion and the motion was carried unanimously.
