    AN important deputation organised by the British Association will be received by Mr. Balfour to-morrow (Friday) afternoon, and will support the plea for the State endowment of higher education and research presented by Sir Norman Lockyer in his presidential address last year. Oxford and Cambridge will be represented by their Vice-Chancellors and others, London University by Lord Rosebery (Chancellor) and others, and the Birmingham University representatives will be headed by Mr. Chamberlain (Chancellor), who it is hoped will speak for all the new universities. According to a statement prepared by the president of the British Association and revised by a committee consisting of the Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Oxford, the Vice-Chancellor of Cambridge, Sir Oliver Lodge, principal of Birmingham University, Sir Michael Foster, M.P., and Sir Henry Roscoe, the British Association has taken action regarding the State endowment of universities, because at the present juncture the highest education and research is a matter not merely of academic, but of the gravest national concern.
