H. GRAY, 1879· 1929.

IN 1929 Canon Joseph Henry Gray wiH have completed fifty years as Fellow of Queens'. At its a nnual meeting, on June 16, 1928, the Queens' College Club decided to present Ca.n on Gray with a token of the very real affection and esteem with which its members regard him.

It was therefore decided that a fund for this

purpose should be raised; that all Queens' men should be invited to subscribe; and that subscriptions should be limited to not more than one guinea.

A list of names of subscribers

(I.Jut not of amounts) will be presented to Canon Gray, together with the gift, at the meeting of the Club in June, 1929. We should like to emphasize that a large number of subscribers is, in our opinion, of more importance than the size of the subscriptions; and we hope that no ohe will be deterred from contributing because he can only afford to send a small amount. If you wish ;-to join the list of suLsc.:ribers, will you, please,

· send a remittance to Rev. R. G. D. Laffan, Queens' College, Cambridge, at your early convenience and in any case before March r, 1929.

Commi'tt.:.:-W. T. FARMILOI£, Archdeacon of Sudbury (1886). A. MUNRO (1892). C. M. HOBSON (1921). R. G. D. LAFFAN, Secretary (1914).

The great event in the past year has been the coming of the Rev. V. H. Copestake as Head of the House a�d as part­ time Curate to Mr. Ashman. He served in the War, and came to Queens' in 1920. He left a curacy at Mildenhall to

Queens' College


go to Queens' House last December. He found the House in a somewhat dilapidated ·condition, but managed to collect a special fund for its restoration: In particular he has made the Chapel a new place, and has improved the sanitation of the House. In dealing with the boys, he wisely decreased the numbers for a time, in order to secure better efficiency and a sound spirit. The summer camp was held at Kemsing, near Sevenoaks : a few Queens' men went to help there, but not as many as we had hoped. There is no more delightful and easy way to help .the work than to go to Camp.
