It was indeed a privilege to participate in a conference with German geologists, held in Hannover on October 18, 1972 through the courtesy of Professor Dr. Gerd Lüttig of the Bundesanstalt für Bodenforschung, on the proposed International Guide to Stratigraphic Classification, Terminology and Usage under preparation by the International Subcommission on Stratigraphic Classification (ISSC). I believe this conference was very beneficial to all concerned in making clear various viewpoints and in dispelling previous false impressions. Most significant to me, was the strong feeling I gained that many points of supposed controversy have been exaggerated and that most of such differences as exist can readily be accomodated by a mutually tolerant attitude.
