University Grants


I AM glad to see that the very urgent necessity for the provision of increased University grants which was so ably stated in your leading article of August 5 has led to theposition in Leeds and Birmingham being brought forward so clearly by Sir Michael Sadler and Principal Grant Robertson in NATURE of August 12 and 19. There can be no doubt that every university in the country is feeling the need of largely increased financial assistance, without which it will be impossible to, carry on efficiently, if at all, departments such asthose of science, which must always he a source of large expenditure and financial loss to any university.
