Abstract

(Abstract only) F. E. Ross published a series of papers in 1925–1931 listing 379 new variable stars discovered during his search for high-proper-motion stars. In the years since then, 271 have been studied and catalogued in the General Catalogue of Variable Stars. This paper identifies four of the remainder as asteroids, and discusses interesting observations of another.
