Canon J. H. Gray, late Vice-President, bequeathed £1,000 free of duty to the President and Fellows, "to be applied at their discretion to augment the Chapel Endowment Fund or to found a Classical Scholarship." Mrs Fitzpatrick has given books, bookcases, and certain articles of furniture to the Lodge. Mr A. D. Browne has given a handsome collection of antlers to the Erasmus Room. An old member of the College, who wishes to remain anonymous, has presented £3,000 to establish · a Hebrew Scholarship in memory of Canon Kennett. THE COLLEGE LIBRARY. "The President recently made over to the Library the room between his study and the first floor of the Library. Into this extension (now called the \Vest Room) have been fitted tl1e eighteenth-century hammer-head cases which formerly stood athwart the ends of the original cases in the oldest part of the Library. It has thus been made possible to restore the cases in the oldest part of the Library to their se\'enteenth-century condition and to improve in a marked degree the artistic effect. At the same time the President made over two large oak case!' and a great many valuable books from the President's Lodge. These cases, together with the two left to the College by Dr Fitzpatrick, haye been set up at the east end of the Old Chapel for the accommodation of the Reference Lib~;, rary, etc. BEQUESTS.

A very large number of books were bequeathed to the Library by Dr Fitzpatrick, Canon Gray and Canon Kennett. The Kennett Bequest is a valuable collection of books on Oriental Languages. These have been arranged in the large room on the second floor of the Library, and most of the books on oriental subjects from other parts of the Library have been grouped with them by Mr H. M. J. Loewe. Mrs Kennett has presented a bookcase to go with the books.

QUEENS' HOUSE. Lieut. Bache, who is in charge of Queens' House in Rotherhithe, gives a most encouraging report of steady progress in the work there. The total number of those using the House is about 150: of these approximat ely 60 are in the Men's Club, 40 are Boy Scouts and 25 Wolf Cubs, and the rest are nonScout members of the Boys' Club. No visitor can fail to be struck with the scrupulous cleanness · and neatness of the premises, and of the excellent discipline which exists without being too obvious. The financial situation is, however, anything but satisfactory: our income at this end shows a serious diminution. The actual deficit on the year's accounts is about £20, but it would have been much larger but for rigorous cuts in expenditure . Mr Bache has done wonders in raising money by entertainme nts, etc., in Rotherhithe : he and the boys have made or subscribed about £75 in the year. The fire of two years ago, during which a great volume of water was poured over the house, is still making its effects felt in dampness which affects the plaster, and of course this is not covered by the insurance money which was claimed and paid long since. So a good many repairs have been necessary, for which . we at Queens' have not paid a penny. at 'Grove the in . campea boys of number a At Whitsun Chidlock at held was camp suinmer Queens'; in August. a on the Dorset coast. · Mr Bache has now fo hand a number of winter ictivities, including technical classes and lectures. Offers of personal help m these or other ways will be welcomed by him.

QUEENS' COLLEGE CLUB. During the year, June 21, 1931, to June 18, 1932, 53 new members joined; the total membership is now 822. The annual meeting was held in the Combination Room on June 18th, 1932, the President in the chair. Messrs W. L. B. Hayter, R. A. Hayes and A. C. Crooke were re-elected, and Dr H. R. Youngman was elected, to serve on tbe Committee. Mr Laffan laid before the meeting for consideration a suggestion that the annual meeting and dinner might occasionally be held on a Thursday or Friday, for the convenience of tbe clerical members of the Club, e.g. on a day between Easter and the beginning of the Easter term. The suggestion was opposed by several members who emphasized tbe charm of the College in June and the pleasure afforded by a week-end in College. A small committee was then appointed to consider what steps might be taken to provide a memorial to the late President. The annual dinner was then held in Hall. There were present, besides the President and Fellows, Dr Regan (Hon. Fellow), Sir Shenton Thomas, Major Harvey, Drs Robinson and Youngman, Messrs Abbott, D. G. Allen, Atkinson, Ayrey, Braine, Brand, Brandreth, Boddy, Budgett, Butler, Carr, Cattell, Chanter, C. A.. Chase, Cobb, Coggins, B. S. Collins, Colton, Constant, Crowther.
