BIRMINGHAM.—At the last meeting of the council of the University a communication was received from Dr. R. S. Heath stating that owing to ill-health he desired to retire from his appointments as vice-principal, professor of mathematics, and registrar. Dr. Heath was appointed to his chair in Mason College in May, 1884—thirty-four years ago. Appointed chairman of the College Academic Board in 1889 and principal of the college in 1890, he was included in the University charter as the first vice-principal, undertaking in addition the duties of registrar. As a member of council and senate he has rendered splendid service to the University, and ably represented it on many educational bodies.
