The Spike or Victoria College Review 1937

Chemical Society

page 79

Chemical Society

This year the newly-formed Chemical Society has replaced the old Science Society and has been affiliated to the Students' Association. Its object is to foster an interest in Chemistry and it is to be hoped that by encouraging student speakers at its meetings and by holding frequent discussions, it will fill a long-felt need of the students of Chemistry in the College.

Lectures held up to date include a lecture demonstration on the "Liquefaction of Gases," by Mr. Edmundson of the Acetone Welding Company, the Presidential Address on "New Pathways in Structure" by Mr. White, a demonstration on "Chemistry in Pharmacy" by Mr. Morrison, and lectures and discussions on "Chemical Warfare" (Mr. Davis of the Dominion Laboratory), "Crystal Structure" (Miss Thompson), "Research Work of the Past Year" (by the Honours students), and "Spectra" (by Mr. Davis of the Dominion Laboratory).
