THE University of Toronto owes much to the able and wise administration of the retiring president, Sir Robert Falconer: by the part he played in securing adequate provision for teaching and researchin botany he has earned the gratitude of all who are interested in that branch of biology. One of his last acts in Commencement Week of this year was to assist at the formal opening of the new Botanical Department on June 8. After an informal luncheon given to the visiting botanists, the Chancellor of the University, Sir William Mulock; the Prime Minister of Ontario, Mr. G. S. Henry; the President, Sir Robert Falconer; his successor, the Rev. Dr. Cody, chairman of the Board of Governors, and others, walked in procession to the new building, which was opened by the Prime Minister.
