Talbot to the Council was announced, and C. P. Goodenough was re-appointed Editor of the " Chronicle " for the year 1929-30. The Chairman was asked to send the congratulations of the Association to the Principal of Somerville College on the occasion of its Jubilee. In order to facilitate the tasks of the Secretary and Editor, it was agreed that in future the annual register and copies of the Association Statute and Byelaws be sent out (as required by the byelaw), in their own cover, separately from the " Chronicle."

At the Dinner on June 29th the following toasts were drunk : 1. " The King." 2. " The Association!' The Rt. Rev. Bishop Shaw, D.D., Chairman of the Council. Responding : Miss W. M. Mammatt.

3. " The College." Miss Talbot, Elected Member of Council, 19291932. Responding : The Principal. A graceful unpremeditated speech of acknowledgement for hospitality was made by D. Ibberson. There was a celebration of Holy Communion in the College Chapel on Sunday, June 30th, at 8 a.m., at which Dr. Archer Houblon formerly Chairman of the Council, and Mr. Brook, Fellow and Chaplain of Lincoln, officiated.

The Principal's Letter. Dear Miss Goodenough, I gladly accede to your request for a letter.

As to University doings, the most interesting of the " Acta " of Congregation during the period under review is the new Pass Moderations Statute, of which I gave the important sections in full : " The Subjects of Examination shall be arranged in two Groups : I. (1) Latin, (2) Greek, (3) French, (4) German (5) Old English ; II. (1) Mathematics, (2) Logic, (3) Political Economy, (4) English History and Literature, (5) Greek History, (6) Greek or Latin Literature, (7) Constitutional Law and History, (8) European History, (9) Prose Composition in Latin, Greek, French, German. A candidate shall be deemed to have passed the examination if he shall have satisfied the Moderators in at least two subjects from Group I, of which either Latin or Greek must be one, and in at least one subject from Group II and in four subjects in all, provided that he shall have passed in not less than three of his four subjects at one and the same examination." The Honour School of Jurisprudence hopes instead of " Law Prelim." to have its own Moderations, and Decrees in this sense are on their way to adoption. Bodley is again in the limelight, and proposals, generously financed by the Rockefeller Foundation, for an investigation of well-known University Libraries here and abroad, have been adopted without controversy. Miss Harlow's election to the office of Principal of the Society of Oxford Home-Students was the subject of much congratulation to that Society • while Miss Burrows (not yet, I am glad to say, academically defunct) by remaining in Oxford continues to be a happiness to her wide circle of friends. Now as to our own doings. Miss Procter's return to her chair at the Council table at the first Stated Meeting of the Trinity Term was a great satisfaction, and your own representative, Miss Talbot, was warmly welcomed in October. ,

ST. HUGH'S CHRONICLE.

Distinction has been conferred upon us this term by the addition of Sir Basil Blackett to the Council as an Extraordinary Member. A glance at " Who's Who " suffices to indicate that imprudent finance will not be among the policies facilitated by this our latest co-optation, and in view of certain important issues now before us—relating to land, buildings, and possibly in due course the raising of loans—his experience of affairs will be of the greatest value. Sir Basil took a First in Greats in 1904, and is a member of the Court of the University of London, so in the perennial tug-of-war between budgets and " the Services " should not be wholly deaf to appeals from the latter side. Miss Farrow, alas, no sooner took up her position as an ex-officio Member than she laid it down—for the best of reasons. Miss Glover, already a vigorous element in our deliberations, will, we hope, surrender to no such temptations for the present. A useful piece of business put through this year is the making of liberal -provision for Officers of the College who fall ill while actually in resijence and in performance of their duties, and are obliged by medical advice to ask for long leave. The conferring upon Miss Wardale of an Honorary Fellowship marks the year 1929-30 in a manner acceptable to every generation of Senior Members. This event is dealt with elsewhere. The Jourdain Memorial Committee's benefaction of £300 towards a Loan Fund for Students is a highly welcome accession to the resources of the College. The Council has decided to add to it ,100—a gift received from Mr. Spencer Holland, nephew of the late Canon Scott Holland, another good friend of the College, and placed entirely at our discretion. This will make the Bertha Johnson Loan Fund go further, and so indirectly benefit other Societies as well as our own. Another benefaction has come to us-03,000 under the will of the late Canon John Gamble, of Bristol, who devised his large estate entirely for the benefit of women's education in the United Kingdom. The Council has not yet placed the sum to the credit of any College fund, but its destiny will, no doubt, be decided during the Trinity Term. In gratitude to the testator, Canon Gamble's name will, of course, be associated with any purpose to which his legacy may be put. " 13 Norham Gardens " is now an established fact, and we have no undergraduates living in rooms, except one or two who for special reasons have asked and received leave to do so. This beautiful house overlooking the University Park, which was left by the late Lady Osier to the authorities for the use of the Regius Professor of Medicine, but which Sir Farquhar Buzzard prefers for the present not to occupy, has been taken for some years by Miss Hurlston, and the College has the refusal of twelve rooms in it together with the excellent commonrooms, etc., for graduate and fourth year students. It is at present a microcosm of the Empire and the English-speaking world, as Ceylon University College and London University, Wells College, U.S.A., and Sheffield University, Glasgow University, and Rhodes University College, Grahamstown, are all represented as well as Oxford : while Theology, Greats, History, English, Economics, Spanish and Modern Greats are cheek by jowl there, and Natural Science and Mathematics just waiting to go in. This is as it should be. May St, Hugh's and in-

sularity never be named together

To turn to personal news. Miss Kirkaldy has been elected an Hon. Fellow of Somerville College, on the occasion of the Jubilee of that Society. She was a Tutor at St. Hugh's, 1908-1927, and a member of the Council, 1913-1927. Many generations of students in all the Societies will rejoice in the honour accorded to Miss Kirkaldy by her own College. A stimulating teacher, and enthusiast for the cause of Natural Science at Oxford, she has lived to see many of her pupils occupying distinguished positions, new laboratories rising one after the other in the Parks, and steady progress made in all subjects. Somerville, Science and Miss Kirkaldy are all honoured by the election. Canon Streeter has been away for two terms addressing audiences of students, and broadcasting his message also, in University centres of China and Japan. Editions of " Reality " in both Chinese and Japanese are now being widely read there, and the author was everywhere eagerly received. Six weeks of illnsss in a Pekin hospital seem (as all who know Canon Streeter will hear without surprise) to have made rather less impression on him than they would on most undergraduates of twenty ; and the traveller wound up by attending the Third Biennial Session of the Institute of Pacific Relations at Kyoto in October and November. It was very nice to see him again. What students of many generations, and now of East as well as West, owe to Canon Streeter will never be fully known. Mr. Brook has been elected Censor of 1\ on-Collegiate Students in succession to Mr. Baker. The Delegates are universally felt to have made an excellent choice. A momentary fear that the accession of new duties might deprive us of Mr. Brook, who seems now so thoroughly part and parcel of our counsels, was at once dispelled by his generous expression of readiness to continue a member of Council. The College owes him gratitude for more than one form of help and support in its aims. News of Miss Perham (Rhodes Travelling Fellow, 1929) has been regularly received during her journey across the United States, and her voyages about the Pacific Ocean between Pango-Pango, Samoa., Fiji, New Zealand and Australia. She has discussed educational and other matters with American negroes in responsible positions, has spent a night in a South Sea islander's family, joining in their sports and dances, has met the leader of the Mau in his exile, and has studied the archives of both British and American administration in the Pacific. She is now in Africa, having landed at Durban in December, when she took an early opportunity of exploring the dock labourers' compounds, etc., afterwards travelling under the aegis of Resident Commissioners into certain native reserves and to distant mission stations. A snap of Miss E. M. Wallace (1908) among her class of native girls accomfpanied one letter. Intensely but painfully interesting has been the stay at Johannesburg, with investigation of native " locations," meetings, dance halls and social centres; worst of all, perhaps, the police court to which Miss Perham persuaded a reluctant—and possibly ashamed, though he is not responsible for its conditions—magistrate to admit her, and in which native women as well as men are tried. The latest news is of presentation to the Governor-General and of a course in anthropology, etc., at the University of Cape Town. Natal, Bechuanaland, the Lower L Congo, Kenya and Tanganyika are to follow. There can be no doubt that Miss Perham is utilising to the full the extraordinary opportunities provided by her Fellowship, and the introductions which it has rendered available. We hear from the Secretary

to the Rhodes Trustees that she " has made an excellent impression in South Africa." More power to her elbow, and hearty acknowledgements to Cecil Rhodes Miss Seaton has been elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature. Among the objects of the Society, incorporated in 1825, as stated in its Charter, there appear : " the advancement of literature by the publication of inedited remains of ancient literature," and " the promotion of discoveries in literature." Miss Seaton's " Venus and Anchises " (Brittain's Ida) and "'Other Poems," by Phineas Fletcher, edited for the Society from a. unique manuscript discovered by her in Sion College, is a contribution to these objectswhich, among her other achievements in English, particularly Elizabethan studies, qualifies the editor unmistakably for an honour on which the College may congratulate itself and the Society. College has had a charming gift during the year. The Warden and Fellows of New College, hearing through Mr. Myres of deliberations concerning the purchase of a table for the High, presented to us an oak table no longer required in the New College library. This was adapted to our needs and placed in position by the good offices of some men members of Council, past and present. It bears the following inscription in bronze : HANC MENSAM MINERVAE OLIM NUNC CERERI DEVOTAM COLLEGII B. V. MARIAE DE WINTON IN OXONIA CUSTOS ET SOCII PRINCIPI SOCIABUSQUE COLLEGII SANCTI HUGONIS CONCESSERE QITARITM IN USUM CENANTIUM II QUI CONAILIORUM CONSORTES FUERIINT CONVERTENDAM CURAVERUNT A. S. MCMXXIX. Mr. Myres, who is responsible also for the neat Latin over the door of the J.C.R., is by way of becoming Hon. Inscriber-General to the College. (The form " sociabus " did not escape challenge from Miss Rogers, but was, I believe, triumphantly vindicated.) Senior Members will be glad to know that the combined gift of a white Altar frontal (mentioned in last year's " Chronicle ") has now been received and used in chapel, together with some new blue hangings, the cost of which is being defrayed out of gifts from the S.C.R., supplemented by the Chapel Fund. A great enrichment of the Sanctuary, they are kept at present for very special occasions. Miss Moberly is well, and desires her remembrances to you all. With kindest wishes,

F ebmary 1930.

Yours sincerely, B. E. GWYER.

The Senior Common Room. The most outstandincr of the Staff's doings in the past year was Miss Perham's departure at the end of June to put a girdle round the earth as a Rhodes Fellow. In addition to her own accounts of her travels, news of her has filtered through to the College from the Antipodes, and we learn that she will soon be calling a halt at Nairobi. Her unofficial comments on men and matters make us look forward to her final garnering of her sheaves in book-form. South Africa has attracted others of the Staff this year, for Miss Goulding visited it in the Long Vacation with the British Association, and Miss Glover had the same intention, but was obliged to defer it. In Miss Perham's absence, Miss Rowe, whpm the College was fortunate enough to retain, runs the Modern Greats School, and part of the History School in alliance with Miss Proctor, whom we welcomed back last April from her cold exile in Switzerland. It is pleasant to report her restoration to health when the Staff has suffered a good deal from illness. Miss Buckhurst was unfortunately unable to maintain the better health in which, as was hoped, she had returned to College last spring. In the middle of the Michaelmas Term she was obliged to give up work in order to have further treatment, and is taking two terms' leave of absence in the hope of complete recovery. Almost coincidently with Miss Buckhurst's retirement into the Acland, Miss Seaton succumbed to that unromantic complaint, chicken-pox, leaving the English School as an extra responsibility on the Principal's already well-filled hands ; she emerged from seclusion just in time to interview the whole School, which is now under her Tutorship. Miss Joan Sargeaunt, whom Old Students of the 1925 period will remember, is now living in College to give some help with English teaching while continuing her work for the B.Litt. Another Old Student, Miss Hamilton Thompson, has succeeded Miss Downie as Assistant Librarian, while the latter has taken up work in Edinburgh in the University Library ; when we see her again, she will doubtless have a more beguiling Scotch accent than ever. Many Old Students will mingle congratulations to Miss Farrow on her approaching marriage with regrets for her departure ; the College can ill afford to lose any former student from its Staff, still less one who has flung herself so whole-heartedly into Old-Student interests. She hopes to be married in April, and has already secured a flat in Bristol, so that household problems (e.g., floor-staining) complicate those of pure Science. But she intends to reconcile the claims of both, and of Oxford versus Bristol, by coining up throughout the Trinity Term to complete the year's teaching; after that her official connection with St. Hugh's will be severed, but never, we hope, her unofficial.

The J.C.R. April, 1929 April, 1930. The J.C.R. is very proud of its two academic distinctions of the year, P. Hartnoll's success in the N-ewdigate Prize, and E. Tostevin's First in Modern History. Among their political activities, two members of the J.C.R. between them hold, three Treasurerships of University Clubs : I. Yarwood is Treasurer of the Labour Club, and of the League of Nations Society, and E. Hicks is Treasurer of the Liberal Club. The Societies within the College have had several interesting evenings, including a talk on India by Mrs. Coatman to the History Society, and a talk on China to the S.C.M. by Miss Mackinnon. Last term the J.C.R. collaborated with the Council and the S.C.R. in a successful Sale in aid of the Fellowship Fund. It was held on Friday, November 17th, and was followed the next day by the usual St. Hugh's Day festivities. The performance of " A Hundied Years Old " (the brothers Quintero, translated by Granville Barker) by the Dramatic Society, was the best that has been given in College for some years. The criticisms in the University papers were fiery complimentary, especially to G. Joel (Tilomena), both on her acting and on the production as a whole. The only athletic success of the year was the 2nd VI Tennis Cup. The " Blues " for the year are :— Tennis : NI. Buick. Hockey : M. Beattie, R. Attenborough. Lacrosse : H. Haworth, M. Buick. M. K. BEATTIE, President.

Miss Wardale. The name of Edith Wardale takes the mind back a long way in the history of the College and of English teaching in Oxford. The Committee governing St. Hugh's Hall in April, 1891, " approved the acceptance by Miss Wardale of the appointment of lecturer at the Royal Holloway College for the present term," which suggests that the experience which must in time have become habitual to her—that of being wanted in two or three places at once—was already growing familiar. Miss Wardale was elected a member of the Council in 1890, and is still a member " for so long as she shall desire to serve " ; she was VicePrincipal from 1889 94 ; Hon. Treasurer, 1895-9, and Tutor, 1908-24. Hence we find but three years in the whole history of St. Hugh's during which she held no official position : the three years, presumably, when she was herself an irresponsible student. It is not easy to see how Oxford will do without her when she finally ceases to give instruction in English. And of how many people now teaching it (her former pupils) she knows the worst ! -

An Honorary Fellowship at her own College is due recognition of Miss Wardale's intellectual gifts, and of her prolonged work and repeated acts of generosity in the community she has seen grow from the tiny beginnings of 1886 to its present importance. English is one of the subjects to which women, since their admission to the University and even before, have made a definite contribution in respect of both scholarship and teaching. To few scholars, whether men or women, does the School owe more than to Miss Wardale. May she have health and strength long to enjoy her retirement.

Research Fellowship Endowment Fund. The Fund has made excellent progress since last year. The St. Hugh's Club Funds to the initiation of which the College owes everything, in that cn it all subsequent effort has been built, was handed over to the Council in January, having reached the gratifying total of £743 15s. 7d. (including £650 War Stock) in less than five years. The Committee of Council working side by side with the Club, and well supported by the S.C.R. and J.C.it., had meanwhile accumulated £835 15s. 4d., so that the total in hand at this moment is £1,57910s. 11d. Further investments are being made. G. THORNBYOROFT.

St. Hugh's Club. At the annual business meeting of the Club, held at College cn June 29th, 1929, a motion was carried authorising the Committee to revise the objects, membership, subscription, and constitution of the Club. A second motion abolishing annual membership was also carried. The Committee are at present considering the revision of the constitution, and hope that the Club expenses will allow them to fix the life membership subscription at 10s., instead of 25s., as at present. As the social teas the Club has held in recent years have not been well supported by members, the Committee are arranging a dinner to be held in London, at Fuller's Restaurant, Regent Street, on March 8th, when Mrs. Snowden has kindly consented to be the Club's guest, and the Principal will preside. It is hoped that there will be a large attendance of members snd their friends at this, the first dinner the Club has held for many years. The Committee consists of Mrs. Grigg (chairman), Miss Lagden, and the honorary secretary, who retire in May, 1930. Miss Grieg, Miss Jones, Miss Rosser and Miss Thomas, who retire in May, 1931, and the President of the J.C.R. On January 1st, 1930, the Club membership was : 2 honorary members, 318 life members, and 29 annual members for 1929. NANCIE MOLLER, Hon. Sec. and Treas., St. Hugh's Club. In accordance with the resolution passed at the June meeting, 1929, of St. Hugh's Club, the investments (630) and the cash balance on deposit (C93) held on behalf of the k ellowship Fund (originally St. Hugh's Old Students' Scholarship Fund) has been made over to the Council of St. Hugh's College.

OBITUARY. SIR GRAHAM BALFOUR.

Sir Graham] Balfour is best known to the majority of us by his " Life of Robert Louis Stevenson " (1901). Educationalists owe him much for his twenty-three years' work as Director of Education in Staffordshire (1903-26), during which period the county became known as one of the most educationally progressive in England. His " Educational Systems of Great Britain and Ireland " went into a second edition in 1903, and is a standard book of reference. Sir Graham and his wife were friends of the College in its earliest days. He accepted the office of Hon. Treasurer to St. Hugh's Hall in February, 1899, and held it till he left Oxford in 1903. Mrs. Balfour was Hon. Secretary from 1901-2. On returning to Oxford in 1926, both showed an eager interest in our progress, as in that of other spheres of education in the University and City.

PHOEBE MARGARET WALSER.

Phcebe Walker (B.A., 1926) remained at Oxford for a year, after taking her degree, working for the diploma in teaching. She married, on January 31st, 1929, her cousin, Mr. Douglas S. Walker, and on February 16th sailed with her husband to Australia, where he had a business engagement. Part of the time was spent in Sydney and part in Melbourne. She returned, after eight months abroad, and landed in England on November 23rd ; on January 3rd, 1930, she gave birth to a son, stillborn, and died on the afternoon of Sunday, January 5th. The memory which most of her year will have of Phcebe Walker is that of happiness. One usually felt happy if one were with her, and perhaps the most important reason for this was the generous spirit which people who knew her well had most cause to value and respect. One of them writes " I never knew her to speak unkindly of anyone." She had a rare quality of enjoying most phases of College life without allowing herself to become obsessed by any one of them. In reading, too, and in her own writing she showed that quick grasp of essentials and that same judgment. She never juggled or played tricks with her understanding." She was only twenty-five years old when she died in that time she had much joy herself, and gave much to other people. A. H.

MRS. KENNETH LEYS. As we go to Press, the sad news of Mrs. Kenneth Leys' death is announced. She was bicycling in Oxford, and was knocked down by a car, dying within a few hours. As Miss Hayes Robinson she held the post of Vice-Principal for a short period in 1899, before taking up the work of History Lecturer at Royal Holloway College. A character universally respected and loved, Mrs. Leys will be greatly missed—most of all in her home where her husband and one daughter still at school survive her. R.I.P.
