University and Educational Intelligence


    London.—The senate of the university includes sixteen members elected by registered members of convocation and sixteen by the faculties. Of the former, six are elected by the registered graduates in science; and of the latter, the faculty of science appoints four. There are two vacant seats in science, and five candidates have presented themselves as candidates for them. The candidates are: Dr. George Senter, principal of Birkbeck College, and author of a number of papers and other works on chemistry (Dr. Senter is a member of the faculty of science, and is therefore eligible for election as a representative of the faculty in the senate); Mr. T. LI. Humberstone, an old student and associate of the Royal College of Science, well known to be particularly familiar with the work of the University and educational problems generally; Dr. Jessie White, who is especially interested in methods of teaching science; Dr. J. S. Bridges, director of education, Willesden; and Mr. C. W. Crook, headmaster, Central Secondary School, Wood Green. The poll closes on Tuesday next, Oct. 10, and it is hoped that graduates will not fail to send in their voting papers before that date.
