THE COLLEGE The A.R.P. trenches dug during the September 1938 crisis were opened up on the declaration of war. Mr Browne, the Senior Warden, has combined the organising ability of the old soldier with the ingenuity of the engineer to put the defences against air-raids into excellent shape (see The Times, ·21 Sept. 1939). Besides trenches, gas-proof and splinter-proof shelters have been prepared in every court, and there are three dressing stations. The splinter-proof shelters have accommodation for 400 residents of the College and for another 50 of the general public. All this is the more necessary because the Staff and Students of StBartholomew's Hospital have been attached to Queens' and this year sees in residence double the normal number of men. In such an emergency each set has, of course, to accommodate two men. The co­ operation of the Office, Kitchen, Gardeners' and Porter's Staffs in all the extra work which has arisen deserves especial praise, ·




E. M. Cobb (1932) has presented some old College bills (see The Dial, Easter Term 1939). Mr Edward Moon has presented a marble bust of his father, the late Robert Moon, Fellow and Honorary Fellow of the College (M.A. 1841). A. B. Stokes (1896) has presented dish-covers. L. Patrick (1921) has presented a dozen silver fish knives an I forks . Dr A. R. Roche (1897} has again presented a tree, rose-trees, and many bulbs. The late Mr Sao Bin Tan, father of E. A. (1936) and E. \V. Tan (1932), made a gift of £mo to the College.
