QUEENS' HOUSE IN ROTHERHITHE. The Rev. E. M. Vanston has now been for a year Head of the House, and has unquestionably won the confidence and liking of the Rotherhithe boys. They came to camp at Grantchester for a fortnight in the Long Vacation Term and enjoyed themselves in spite of broken weather. On the Saturday evening when they returned to Rotherhi the, they found No. 49 Rotherhithe Street, where Mr. Vanston lives, a smoking ruin. The fire had broken out at 2 a.m. and is attributed by the Police to housebreakers. Mr. Vanston lost all his possessions. The next house, where the boys' club is, was not injured except unhappily the Chapel on the top story. One more loss has to be recorded, the Rev. E. H. Williams Ashman, of Queens', who has been Vicar of the Parish for several years and whose help to Queens' House it is hard to overestimate, has gone to a large Parish in Bethnal Green. However, he is to be succeeded at the Vicarage by another Queens' man, the Rev. Leslie Hills, who has been abroad as a C.!\1.S. Missionary. C. T. W.

Dunne, M.B., B.C., J.P. (1891), proposed the Co llege and entertained his audience with reminiscences of the good and bad points of College l ife in his day. The President made the final speet:h . A considerabl e number of members stayed over the weekend and so were able to en joy the organ recital which P . G. Dore, formerly Organ Scholar (r925), kind ly gave on the Sunday evening. Well practisrd in addressing audiences from the organ, Mr. Dore gave a short and" admirable explanation of each piece of music before playing it, thus add in g greatly to the enjoyment of his most beautiful performance .
