BIRMINGHAM.—The Coal Owners' Associations of the South Midland district, realising that rescue work in mines is a subject in connection with which research is desirable, have arranged with the University for the appointment of a lecturer in mine rescue work. The stipend of the lecturer will be defrayed by the Coal Owners' Associations, the amount offered being 250L. per annum. The functions of the lecturer will be not only to give lectures and instruction in the subject at the University, but also to be responsible for the organisation of rescue work, and to superintend the equipment and training of rescuers throughout the district.
