THE position of the South Africa medal fund for the endowment of a medal and scholarship or studentship in commemoration of the visit of the British Association to South Africa in 1905 is stated in a circular just issued by Prof. J. Perry, honorary treasurer to the fund. The subscriptions promised or paid amounted to 752l.; and to this the council of the British Association has resolved to add the unexpended balance of the special South African fund, amounting to about 800l. The following report of the executive committee was adopted at a meeting of subscribers on March 2, and approved by the council of the British Association:—(a) That the fund be devoted to the preparation of a die for a medal to be struck in bronze, 2 inches in diameter, and that the balance be invested and the annual income held in trust; (b) that the medal and income of the fund be awarded by the South African Association for the Advancement of Science for achievement and promise in scientific research in South Africa; (c) that, so far as circumstances admit, the award be made annually. It is to be hoped that a fund raised for so excellent a project will receive a substantial increase from members of the association who have not already contributed to it, or from subscribers who may wish to add to their subscriptions.
