Abstract
Observations of four southern warm IRAS objects are presented. From th eir optical spectral characteristics they are classified according to their principal excitation mechanisms: one as a Seyfert 2 type, two ot hers as H II region-like galaxies (one of them is a starburst galaxy); the proposed optical identification for the remaining IRAS object is a star of early K type. Their heliocentric radial velocities are given . Additional observations of other eight IRAS galaxies are also report ed, basically confirming previous results with slight variations in re dshifts and classifications.
