On July 19 J. A. Venn was elected a Fellow. Mr. Venn is a distinguished authority on the history and economics of Agriculture and the editor of that monumental work Alumni Cantabrigienses. He has generously expressed his wish to be a supernumerary, i.e. unpaid, Fellow. The admirable services of Canon J. H . Gray, as President of the University Rugby Football Club since 1895, have received signal recognition. The Club presented £1,000 to the University to found a lectureship which should bear his name. In accordance with his. wishes the benefaction will provide special lectures in Classics. A change affecting the life of the undergraduates was carried out during the Christmas vacation. It had long been felt that the College suffered from the lack of a comfortable junior common room. Accordingly the Erasmus (commonly called Bernard) Room was re-furnished with arm-chairs, writing and tea-tables, carpets, a telephone-box and a letterrack. Tea and after-dinner coffee can· be taken there. · Meetings are no longer held there and consequently the St Bernard Society has removed its activities to the Old Chapel. We understand that the change has been much appreciated. With the Lent term, 1927, the Dial reached its majority. O ld members of the College would do well to procure copies of that number, which contains an excellent anthology of the best contributions of past years.

In the Michaelmas term, 1926, there were 203 bachelors and undergraduates in residence; in the Lent term, 1927, 205; in the Easter term, 1927, 203.

Rowing. Our first Lent boat lost three places, ending as tenth boat. The second, however, easily made four bumps and is now well up in the second division. The third fell three places. In the Mays our first boat met disaster, losing four places and ending eleventh. But again the second boat made four bumps, ending near the top of the third division. Our second boats have now made eleven bumps in three years. Cricket. We again had a good team and were only twice beaten. R. W. V. Robins scored centuries regularly when he could play. He took a leading part in the defeat of Oxford, scoring 55 and 41 and fielding like himself. N . G. Wykes played once for the 'Varsity and had an average of infinity, scoring 145 not out. He has since played successfully for Essex. Rugger. The XV. was the best of recent years. J. D. Hodgkinson and H. J. Hobbins were tried in the Freshmen's match. In the knock·out competition we defeated King's, and then met Pembroke with its Welsh internationa ls. The score against us (21-3) hardly does justice to the fine game put up by Queens'.

Mr Youles, who has worked at the Mission for seven years and has been in charge for two years, has sailed for Australia where he hopes to be trained for Ordination. We are glad to say that he is to be succeeded in the late autumn by the Rev. V. H. Copestake (Queens' 1920-23), who will also act as part-time Curate to Mr Ashman. In the· interim Mr Ashman is carrying on the work at the Mission, and would be glad to receive an offer of personal help from any member of the College. There was a successful summer Camp this year .at Grantchester, in a field by the river, owing to the kindness of the proprietors, Messrs Lilley and Mansfield. QUEENS'



During the year (calculated to June 30, 1927), the total of membership was brought up to 486. The annual meeting was held in the Combination Room on June 16, 1927, the President in the chair. It was decided to invest £50, if the club's balance should exceed £80 by June 30, [it did-£87. 2s. 8d.]. Messrs. A. G. Waddell, S. H . Day, P. J. Oldfield and Rev. R. Broxton were elected to serve on the committee till 1931. The financial policy of the Club was defined as the investment of surplus balances until such time as the Club's income from investments should be sufficient to meet ordinary annual expenditure. It was hoped that that object would be achieved in about five years. Thereafter surplus balances might be put to other purposes approved by the Club's members. The annual dinner was held that evening in Hall. Speeches were made by Revs. G. A. Chase, M.C. (1908) and R. G. D. Laffan, Professor C.H. Reilly, O.B.E., of Liverpool University (1896), and the President. There were also present the other Fellows, the Ven. Archdeacon of Sudbury and Messrs G. H.K. Pedley, H. G. Lemmon, A. M. Mitchell, G. E. J. Foster, F. Bird, C. W. Pilkington-Rogers, A. E. Storr, F. G. Plaistowe, E. Reynolds, J. B. Richardson, L. W. Foster, F. C. Clare, W.R. Johnson, J. A. Pocock, J. F. Williams, D. L.

That the numbers were slightly smaller than last year (45 as against 52), may have been due to the dinner having been for once on a Thursday. Those present, however, had a most genial evening, enlivened by the humour of Professor R eilly and th e other speakers. NOTICE.
