There being no issue on December 26

Dr. C.V. Raman, the noted Indian physicist and Nobel Prize winner, disclosed in Annamalainagar on December 26 the new approach which he had made for the solution of the fundamental problems of light, colour and vision. In his presidential address to the Indian Academy of Sciences at Annamalai University, Dr. Raman put forward new ideas on the origin of colour, the nature of the visual mechanism which enables it to be perceived and, finally, the materials present in the human retina which enable the mechanism to operate. The materials referred to have been identified and the manner of their functioning demonstrated by a comparison of their physical properties with the known data of observation regarding the perception of colour.
