AW Gem: stage B-C transition

   Akazawa-san (Okayama U. of Sci. team) has reported more observations.
The data now clarified the evolution of the superhump period.
What looked like a rapid period decrease was actually a stage B-C

stage B: P=0.07928(11), Jan. 10-12
stage C: P=0.07861(1), Jan. 13-

   It has become apparent that the short duration of stage B made
the identification of the stages difficult.
