    CAMBRIDGE.—The trustees of the Captain Scott Memorial Fund have offered to hand over to the University a sum of about I3,oool. for the erection, endowment, and maintenance' of the “Captain Scott Polar Research Institute.” They suggest that 6oool. be set aside for the building and its upkeep, indicating that there are clear advantages in the Institute being a wing of a departmental building; presumably the Trustees have the Department of Geography in mind, and it may be hoped that this gift may stimulate into success the endeavours that have been made to secure adequate accommodation for the Department. The Council is to propose a Grace gratefully accepting the proposed gift.
