Capt. Douglas N. Burns writes from Egypt:—"Last night we had an informal V.U.C. reunion in Cairo About a couple of dozen were present. Lieut-Col Stout was the senior. Others were Dick Wild, Bob Bradshaw, Frank Renouf, Joll, John White, Arch Duncan, Bill Thodey, Jim Watt and Noel Palmer."

Congratulations to Bonk Scotney, past editor of "Salient," on his engagement to Miss Agnes Stewart. Bonk is very well known to all old students, and we hope that freshers will be raised in the Scotney tradition of doing everything at 'Varsity at one time or another. Very best luck, Bonk!

Congratulations to Senior Scholars D. M. Saker (Greek) and Peter de la Mare (Chemistry), and to Betty Fraser (Post Grad. Schol. in French), F. D. Collins (Shirtcliffe Research Scholarship), and J. D. Todd (Tinline Scholar).

We welcome back Dr. Ernest Beaglehole from America, and extend a very warm welcome to Mr. Greenwood, who succeeds Mr. Elliott, as lecturer in Classics.
