The Spike or Victoria College Review 1938

Chemical Society

page 82

Chemical Society

This year the Chemical Society has been fortunate in obtaining the services of a relatively large number of outside lecturers—all experts in their own branches of the subject—to speak at meetings. The society has also arranged that at least a fortnight should elapse between lectures, but, despite this, the attendance has been small, far too small considering the number of students taking chemistry at the College, and it is hoped that the position will improve next year.

Lectures held include the Presidential address, being two lectures on "Microchemistry," by Mr. White; a lecture by Mr. Rands of the Wellington Gas Co. on the "Manufacture of Gas and its By-Products in New Zealand"; "Chemical Aeronautics," a lecture on Froth Flotation, by Mr. Lambert of the Dominion Laboratory; a lecture on "Fish Oils," by Dr. Shorland of the Agricultural Laboratory; a lecture-demonstration on "Modern Laboratory Appliances" by Mr. Davis of the Dominion Laboratory; and a lecture accompanied by a film on "Gas Storage" by Mr. Mandeno of the Dominion Laboratory.
