Proposed Society of Science Students

Nature volume 101, page 244 (30 May 1918) | Download Citation



FOR some time past we have had in mind the desirability of the existence of a society of young scientific students for mutual help. There are no doubt many enthusiastic students of science whov like ourselves, have to rely chiefly on their own efforts for their progress in science, and we think that would be of great advantage to them if they could co-operate in such matters as the purchase of apparatus, materials, and books, and combine for mutual help. There is no society which fully provides for these, and we have decided, after careful consideration, to endeavour to try to get into touch with some of this class of students through the columns of NATURE. Will those students who are interested in the subject please communicate with Mr. P. E. Owens, 28 Jesse Terrace, Castle Hill, Reading?
