SIR GUY MARSHALL retired recently from the post of Director of the Institute and has been succeeded by Dr. S. A. Neave. The work of the Institute is well known. It publishes the Review of Applied Entomology and the Bulletin of Entomological Research, identifies insects submitted by entomologists from all parts of the world, distributes collections of named insects, provides initial stocks of parasites of economic importance, and acts generally in an advisory capacity and as a clearing house for matters connected with applied entomology throughout the Empire. A vacancy on the staff has just been filled, but there will be two others within the reasonably near future, and suitable candidates for these posts are now being sought. Further information can be obtained from the Secretary, Imperial Agricultural Bureaux, 2 Queen Anne's Gate Buildings, London, S. W. I, and applications made by May 1.
