THOSE members of the British Association who attended the meeting in South Africa in 1905 and propose to attend the Capetown-Johannesburg meeting in 1929, will find that much change has taken place in the intervening years. Nowhere will the change be more striking than in the places where the meeting will be held. The sites of the University of Capetown and of the University of the Witwatersrand (Johannesburg) may not vie with that of the University of Glasgow, where the meeting was last held, but their sites are nevertheless magnificent, and the accommodation available is sufficient to provide meeting-rooms for all the sections. Both cities, Capetown and Johannesburg, have town halls of large seating capacity for the larger evening meetings which form such a prominent feature of the British Association meetings.
