Gas and Stars in an H I-Selected Galaxy Sample
We present the results of a J-band study of the H I-selected AreciboDual-Beam Survey and Arecibo Slice Survey galaxy samples using TwoMicron All Sky Survey data. We find that these galaxies span a widerange of stellar and gas properties. However, despite the diversitywithin the samples, we find a very tight correlation between luminosityand size in the J band, similar to that found in a previous paper byRosenberg & Schneider between the H I mass and size. We also findthat the correlation between the baryonic mass and the J-band diameteris even tighter than that between the baryonic mass and the rotationalvelocity.

Arcsecond Positions of UGC Galaxies
We present accurate B1950 and J2000 positions for all confirmed galaxiesin the Uppsala General Catalog (UGC). The positions were measuredvisually from Digitized Sky Survey images with rms uncertaintiesσ<=[(1.2")2+(θ/100)2]1/2,where θ is the major-axis diameter. We compared each galaxymeasured with the original UGC description to ensure high reliability.The full position list is available in the electronic version only.

Galaxy coordinates. II. Accurate equatorial coordinates for 17298 galaxies
Using images of the Digitized Sky Survey we measured coodinates for17298 galaxies having poorly defined coordinates. As a control, wemeasured with the same method 1522 galaxies having accurate coordinates.The comparison with our own measurements shows that the accuracy of themethod is about 6 arcsec on each axis (RA and DEC).

A Deep Survey of H I-selected Galaxies: The Sample and the Data
In a 21 cm neutral hydrogen survey of approximately 55 deg^2 out to aredshift of cz = 8340 km s^-1, we have identified 75 extragalactic H Isources. These objects comprise a well-defined sample of extragalacticsources chosen by means that are independent of optical surfacebrightness selection effects. In this paper we describe the Arecibosurvey procedures and H I data, follow-up VLA H I observations made ofseveral unusual sources, and Kitt Peak B-, R-, and I-band photometry fornearly all of the galaxies. We have also gathered information for someof the optically detected galaxies within the same search volume. Weexamine how samples generated by different types of search techniquesoverlap with selection by H I flux. Only the least massive H I object,which is among the lowest mass H I sources previously found, does nothave a clear optical counterpart, but a nearby bright star may hide lowsurface brightness emission. However, the newly detected systems do haveunusual optical properties. Most of the 40 galaxies that were notpreviously identified in magnitude-limited catalogs appear to begas-dominated systems, and several of these systems have H Imass-to-light ratios among the largest values ever previously found.These gas-dominated objects also tend to have very blue colors, lowsurface brightnesses, and no central bulges, which correlate stronglywith their relative star-to-gas content.

H I observations of lenticular and early type galaxies
High sensitivity H I observations of 56 galaxies, mostly S0's (47objects), carried out with the Arecibo radio telescope are presented.Twelve S0's and four S0/a spirals have been detected, among which 12 forthe first time, and nine of them have been mapped. In addition,absorption lines have been found in two S0's. A detailed discussion ofthe results of the mapping has made it possible to solve several casesof confusion and to find out two possible cases of H I ring structuresor flat rotation curves in S0's. Finally for six mapped galaxies, asimple deconvolution procedure has led to the derivation of the total HI fluxes and of the H I diameters; on the average, the ratio of the H Idiameter to the optical one is found to be 30 percent higher for theS0's than for the spirals.

Neutral hydrogen in small groups of galaxies
Neutral hydrogen in 36 pairs and small groups of galaxies was studiedusing the Arecibo radio telescope. Potential groups were selected fromthe Uppsala General Catalogue of Galaxies of Nilson (1973) by a simplealgorithm with the aims of determining or improving redshifts forgalaxies in possible groups and of mapping some of the larger galaxiesto determine their internal dynamics. The H I spectra are examined indetail and problems of confusion in these and previous observations areaddressed. A simple analysis of the groups' mean dynamical mass suggeststhat the mass determined from the galaxies' rotation is sufficient tobind them, but there may be important unmodeled selection orcontamination problems. A simple method for estimating errors of H Ivelocity measurements is also derived.

A 21 CM survey of the Pisces-Perseus supercluster. II - The declination zone +21.5 to +27.5 degrees
Neutral-hydrogen 21-cm line spectra and derived parameters are presentedfor a sample of spiral galaxies in the region bounded by an R.A. greaterthan 22 h and less then 0.04 h, and a declination greater than +21 deg30 min and less than +27 deg 30 min, covering the Zwicky fields 470 to488, as the second installment of a survey of the region of thePisces-Perseus supercluster. New H I line observations made with theArecibo 305 m telescope detected 275 galaxies of 318 studied. Atabulation of derived galaxian properties is given. The redshiftdistribution shows gross departures from that expected for a sample withsimilar magnitude characteristics but homogeneously located in space.These new data will be incorporated into the overall survey of thethree-dimensional structure in the Pisces-Perseus region.

21-cm line observations of 59 lenticular and spiral galaxies
Fifty-nine lenticular and spiral galaxies have been observed with theNancay Radiotelescope. Forty-one have been detected and for nine objectsdetected in more than one position the HI diameter is given. Thecomparison between HI fluxes observed with the Nancay Radiotelescope andthose obtained with other radiotelescopes shows a good generalagreement, implying an uncertainty on the HI flux measurements about 3Jy-km/s, whereas the few obvious disagreements observed are due toconfusion or to anomalous HI extensions.
