    THE bequest by Lady Dewar of a sum of money for the furtherance of research in the Royal Institution, in memory of the work of her husband, the late Sir James Dewar, has already been announced. The Managers of the Royal Institution have resolved, as the best method of giving effect to Lady Dewar's wishes, to establish a Dewar Research Fellowship, and conditions governing the award of the Fellowship have now been drawn up. The research must be carried on at the Royal Institution, in a branch of science at the discretion of the Managers. The appointment, which is open to persons of either sex,. will be for a period of three years in the first instance,, with a possible extension to five, and will carry with it a salary of £400 a year. It is hoped to appoint the first Dewar fellow later this year, and applications, are being invited through the usual channels.
