CAMBRIDGE.—It is proposed to appoint a Syndicate for the purpose of considering the desirability of establishing an examination in agricultural science, open to all trained students, whether members of the University or not. The successful candidates in such an examination would receive a University diploma similar to the existing diploma in Public Health. It is understood that this plan has received the approval of the Royal Agricultural Society and the Board of Agriculture. These bodies, and certain of the County Councils, have further agreed to subsidise a scheme for the regular instruction within the University of candidates for the examination if it be established.
