When leaving the Victoria airport the day earlier than our Colloquium, I observed a van of the Dunsmuir resort marked with great letters which I learn as "Alcohol Colloquium". I do frequently make such errors a result of worldwide, informal, and careless manner during which I learn quite a few advertisements, and checked myself speedy to learn it competently as "Algol Colloquium". hundreds of thousands of fellow voters might simply make a similar mistake, and no apology will be anticipated. Even I learn and listen to the note alcohol extra often than Algol, even though i have to say that Algols have given me extra excitement and less complications through the years; in that, even if, i'll be a singularity, and doubtless a pitiful one at that. Being appointed Chairman of the clinical Organizing Committee, i'll be deemed to be a purer" Algolist" than different investigators, even supposing my variety of lively pursuits is way broader; and an identical is correct approximately all of the 28 invited audio system and all of the different contributors of the Colloquium. Our curiosity are strongly diverse, yet there are a number of sturdy purposes that introduced us jointly at this Colloquium.

High resolution spectroscopic observations of the H-alpha feature around the orbit of Algol have been reported recently by Richards et a1. (1989) and by Gillet et a1. <19B8). y~ spectra of Algol in which these lines appear to originate in a region n~ar the B8V primary. The H-alpha studies show the flow of cool gas (10 4K) from the inner hemisphere of the cooler toward and possibly around the primary component. During 1975/76, Richards et ai. found strong evi~ence for a disk of high-rotational velocity gas around the B8V primary and a localized, variable, high density region of gas located above the inner hemisphere of this star.
