    ON Wednesday, January 6, during the special session for members of the Annual Exhibition of the Physical and Optical Societies, Prof. C. V. Boys, in the presence of about a hundred subscribers, presented Mr. W. J. Colebrook, formerly superintendent of the physics workshop of the Imperial College of Science and Technology, with a cheque for £100 on the occasion of his retirement. Mr. Colebrook had been connected with the workshop for forty years, and in addition he had acted during the War as workshop consultant to the War Office X-ray Committee, and from 1914 to the present time had been superintendent of the Air Ministry workshop. The testimonial represented the good wishes and appreciation of a large number of scientific workers.
