ASASSN-13ax: stage B superhumps

   Ian Miller has reported new observations.  The data clearly
show a decrease in the superhump period along with the increasing
amplitude.  There must have been a stage A-B transition and
the preliminary period of stage B is 0.0562 d, which will be
improved by further observations.  The suggested period around
0.0550 d for early superhumps appears to be too short
for a WZ Sge-type dwarf nova.
