    CAMBRIDGE.—Dr. James Ward, whose name is well known as a physiological psychologist, was on Saturday elected to the new Professorship of Mental Philosophy and Logic. Dr. E. Barclay-Smith has been appointed Senior Demonstrator, and F. C. Kempson Junior Demonstrator in the department of Anatomy. Dr. J. N. Keynes has been appointed by the Council of the Senate to act on the joint committee for promoting legislation on secondary, education now sitting in London. Mr. Yule Oldham, University Lecturer in Geography, is this term lecturing on the geography of Central Europe, and also (in conjunction with Mr. J. E. Marr, F. R S.) on the scientific study of scenery. The geographical classes have of late been larger than in any previous year, and Mr. Oldham is steadily gaining ground for his subject in the University. Certain changes in the Historical Tripos will lead students to devote more of their time to political geography, and a new section of the higher local examination deals with the wider aspects of the science. The studentship of 100% offered by the Royal Geographical Society to members of the University attending his lectures, will be awarded at the end of the present term. Mr. W. Bateson, F. R. S., of St. John's College, is this term giving a special course of lectures on the study of variation, which he has made peculiarly his own. A Shuttleworth Scholarship of 55/. a year for three years will be awarded at Gonville and Caius College in March. The subjects are botany and comparative anatomy, and candidates must be medical students of not less than eight terms' standing.
