Abstract

In October of last year, vhen I was here in Zurich, it was my privilege to talk with Professor Niggli about the revision of Washington's "Chemical analysis of igneous rocks" which the United States Geological Survey is undertaking. It was then that he suggested the possibility of a progress report at this meeting in order that information about the revision would be available to those who are most interested. At the time that I talked with Professor Niggli the place or this meeting had not bean decided, but I think he hoped that it would be in Zurich,, Today, we must proceed without him, but I am sure that you must feel, as I do, that he is here sn spirit and that he expects us to continue the work as he would have, - with enthusiasm, with strength, and with happiness.
