    THE new A. E. Hills Laboratories, which form a most valuable extension of the Department of Chemistry in the University of Birmingham, were formally opened by the donor (Mr. A. E. Hills) on July 7. The pro-chancellor (Mr. Walter Barrow) expressed the gratitude of the University to Mr. Hills for his generosity in giving £50,000 to build the laboratories, as well as a further gift of £25,000 for postgraduate scholarships. Benefactions by Birmingham donors have provided a further £7,700 for equipment (including £4,200 from Cadbury Bros, and £2,000 from W. Canning and Co.)
