Ig Nobel Prizes

Having taken part in the first Ig Nobel celebration, which Marc Abrahams staged five years ago, and two others since, I can reassure George Scherr [Letters, The Scientist, Jan. 8, 1996, page 12], if he ever does witness that event, he surely would not want to claim to have originated it! His strange letter may be a plea to be considered for Ig Nobel dis-stink-shun. Dudley Herschbach Harvard University Department of Chemistry 12 Oxford St. Cambridge, Mass. 02138
