    CAMBRIDGE.—The Vice-Chancellor has received a letter from Sir Harry McGowan, chairman of Imperial Chemical Industries, Ltd., stating that it is not proposed to continue to support financially the work on molecular rays carried out since 1929 by Mr. R. G. J. Eraser, who has now been appointed to the research staff of I.C.I. (Alkali) Ltd. The apparatus and equipment installed, at a cost of about £2,500, is being offered to the University for the use of the Departments of Chemistry and Physics, and Sir Harry hopes that it will continue to be used for research on molecular rays.
