Mr. Kenneth F. Armstrong

THE death of Kenneth Armstrong on January 3, at twenty-five years of age, while on a visit to the Austrian Tyrol with another young and promising Oxford graduate, John Howard, who was an old schoolfellow, is a grievous tragedy. While ski-ing, they encountered an avalanche which seems to have swept Howard to his death, and it appears that Armstrong, in his endeavour to recover his companion, fell into a ravine, being killed as the result of crashing on a rock.
