PROF. H. BRERETON BAKER, for his presidential address at the annual general meeting of the Chemical Society on Mar. 24, chose as his theme “Experiments on Molecular Complexity.” He had claimed that, like Sir Isaac Newton, “hypotheses non fingo,” but, speaking later at the anniversary dinner, admitted that he was an inveterate maker of hypotheses, which, however, he forbore to publish.
