British Science Guild


    MUCH success attended the annual dinner of the British Science Guild, which was held at the Prince's Restaurant, Piccadilly, on May 23, with the president of the Guild, Lord Montagu of Beaulieu, in the chair. After the loyal toasts had been given by him, Sir Arthur Mayo-Robson, in proposing “The British Science Guild,” said he was sure that there is a wider and deeper interest among the public in regard to recent scientific work, and this interest would be far greater if only scientific discoverers would put their discoveries into works that were more accessible to the public. In nearly all cases technicalities could be very much modified in description, and it would be a great advantage if some of the wonderful discoveries could be put in plain language. Thinking people of various parts of the Empire are just as anxious to learn of these matters because they see much of the application of science. The Guild would be doing very valuable work if it could establish centres in those distant places. The toast was supported by Commdr. L. C. Bernacchi, who spoke of the appeal which will shortly be launched with the object of raising funds to enable the Guild to carry out its legitimate and laudable aims, the encouragement of research and the application of scientific method to all public affairs.
