    ONE of the important questions raised at the Conference on Science and World Order, which was held in London during September 1941, under the auspices of the British Association Division for the Social and International Relations of Science1, was that of post-war university education and the rehabilitation of universities destroyed or damaged during the War. A Committee was consequently formed to examine and report on the problems involved. This Committee, under the chairmanship of Dr. J. C. Maxwell Garnett, is composed of twenty -four members (several representing universities outside the British Empire), together with the president and general officers of the British Association, and Prof. F. E. Weiss and Mr. A. Gray Jones as joint honorary secretaries. The Committee presented an interim report to the Council of the British Association in September 1942, and this has now been published2.
