A CORRESPONDENT points out that the list of the new members of the council of the Royal Society published in NATURE of November 13 (p. 324), contains the names of ten fellows of the society who have not served on the council before, out of the total of six-teen ordinary members of the council. In the council elected in 1912, there were only five members who had not served in previous years; and the list for 1911 included eight fellows who had served before and the same number of fellows who had not done so. This year's list contains, therefore, a larger number of completely new members of the council than is usual. Ten members of the new council, and nine of the retiring council, are Cambridge men.
