    THE centenary celebrations of University College, London, which were inaugurated by Their Majesties the King and Queen on Thursday, June 23, continued day by day until the end of the ensuing week. To-day, July 2, they are to come to a joyous conclusion with a dance in the Great Hall, a building recently acquired and reconstructed by the College and dedicated as a war and centenary memorial on June 24 by H.R.H. Prince Arthur of Connaught. The celebrations have been on a scale befitting their august patronage, and the programme of receptions, divine services, concerts, lectures, and demonstrations arranged for the delectation of the visitors, shows that the College was determined to rise to the height of this opportunity. Specially noteworthy have been the lectures, more than forty in number, including many by such well-known authorities as Sir Flinders Petrie, Profs. J. Norman Collie, M. J. M. Hill, A. V. Hill, and Daniel Jones, and Sir Frederic Kenyon. These, and numerous demonstrations and exhibitions of great interest, were freely open to the public.
