Barr Smith. Tie Warden (Mr. Frederic Chappie, C.M.G.) said the de ceased was not a member of the senate, but of the University Council. He thought -t fittine. however, that at that, the first

meeting since his death, some tribute should be paid to his memory. The University had lost a very good friend, who had been i member of -the council for 19 years, and Even before that period iad devoted his energies assiduously to. the affairs of the University, apart from 'the financial assis tance wiici he had so frequently afforded the institution. In fact, he iad been a munificent benefactor dn, a great many ways. At Mr. Chappie's anetance the members present stood in silence as a tribute to the memory of the deceased. His name- was among those ptyced on the agenda paper for re-election to the senate.
