Abstract: We present new photometric observations of EG And, Z And, BF Cyg, CH Cyg, V1329 Cyg, AG Dra, RW Hya, AX Per and IV Vir made in the standard Johnson UBVR system. The current issue summarizes observations of these objects to 2001 December. The main results can be summarized as follows: EG And: A periodic double-wave variation in all bands as a function of the orbital phase was confirmed. A maximum of the light changes was observed in U (Delta U ~ 0.5 mag). Z And: Our observations cover an active phase, which peaked around 8.4 in U at the beginning of 2000 December. Consequently, a gradual decrease in the star's brightness has been observed. BF Cyg: A periodic wave-like variation in the optical continuum reflects a quiescent phase of this star. A complex light curve (LC) profile was observed. CH Cyg: The recent episode of activity ended in Spring 2000. We determined the position of an eclipse in the outer binary at JD 2451426 +/- 3. Recent observations indicate a slow increase in the star's brightness. V1329 Cyg: Observations were made around a maximum at 2001.2. AG Dra: Our measurements from the Autumn of 2001 revealed a new eruption, which peaked at ~JD 2452217. RW Hya: The light minimum in our mean visual LC precedes the time of the spectroscopic conjunction of the giant in the binary. AX Per: A periodic wave-like variation was observed. Our recent observations revealed a secondary minimum at the orbital phase 0.5, seen best in the V and B bands. IV Vir: The LC displays a double-wave throughout the orbital cycle.
