1. DOUG DUNCAN - AAS EDUCATION COORDINATOR
The AAS is pleased to announce the appointment, effective 1 October 1996, of Dr. Douglas K. Duncan of The Adler Planetarium and the University of Chicago as the first Education Coordinator of
the Society. Full details will be carried in an article in the October issue of the AAS Newsletter.
2. ELECTRONIC SUBMISSION OF GRAPHIC FILES AND TABLES FOR APJ
Table policies for the Astrophysical Journal, the Astrophysical Journal Supplement Series, and the Astrophysical Journal Letters have changed. Plano tables (camera-ready tables) are no longer being accepted for publication; electronic tables formatted with AASTeX or the LaTeX table/tabular environments are the preferred submission formats. Tables submitted on paper will have to be
typeset, so please double space them for ease of copyediting.
The above journals are also accepting figure files electronically as PostScript (PS) or Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) files for use in the printed and on-line versions of the journals. This includes line art, grayscale, halftones, and color plates. If you have a choice please use EPS files rather than plain PS files.
3. SHARES IN MICHIGAN-DARTMOUTH-MIT OBSERVATORY AVAILABLE
The University of Michigan, Dartmouth College and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology invite proposals from prospective partners at any time prior to 31 October 1996. We are seeking institutions interested in obtaining shares in the Michigan-Dartmouth-MIT (MDM) Observatory located on Kitt Peak in Arizona. The upcoming vacancies planned by MIT and the University of Michigan will make about 50% of the observing time available. The MDMO consists of two modern fully equipped 1.3-m and 2.4-m telescopes with living and office space. Detailed information and
photographs of the observatory can be downloaded from a UM web site with the URL
where the full text of the proposal invitation can be obtained.
