Personal.—  At the 125th meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Washington, D. C., in December, Col. Paul A. Campbell, Chief of the Division of Space Medicine at Randolph Air Force Base, served as chairman of a joint session of the American Physiological Society and the American Astronautical Society. Among the subjects discussed at this session were: "Man-Machine Systems in Space Vehicles," "Protection of Man Against Transient Exposure to High Heat Loads," "Psychological Research on the Environment of Outer Space," and "A Comparison of Artificial Environments Used in Sealed Cabins During Flight into the Stratosphere." At the same meeting Lieut. Col. John D. Fulton, head of the school's Department of Microbiology-Cellular Biology, delivered a paper on the survival of tiny earth organisms in a simulated Martian environment. It described the colonel's work, which was carried on at the School of Aviation Medicine since 1957.
