The presentation to Dr. Casement Aickin, of a handsome silver rose bowl yesterday afternoon by the members of the honorary medical staff of the Auckland Hospital was the occasion of several flattering testimonials to the thoroughness and efficiency of New Zealand medical education. The gentlemen present included Messrs Inglis (in the chair), Gore Gillon, and Savage (hon. surgeons), and Drs. Pabst, Sweet, Hardie Neil, Goldstein (hon physicians), and members of the resident medical staff. Mr Inglis in making the presentation, spoke in warm appreciation of Dr. Aiekin's services during his association with the medical staff, particularly during his term as senior officer. The first New Zealand graduate to occupy the position, he was to be congratulated upon the high standard he had set his successors to emulate. His professional brethren regretted Ms retirement exceedingly, but it was recognised that the position was but a temporary one, in order to allow of well merited promotion. He congratulated Dr. Aickin upon his approaching , marriage, wished every prosperity and happiness to Dr. and Mrs Aickin, and he trusted the trip to the Old Country would prove both Dleasant and instructive.

Dr. Hardie Neil spoke in similar strain, and briefly outlined the educational career of Dr. Aickin as a New Zealand student. The New Zealand public, he pointed out, demanded a much higher standard of proficiency in their own students than was required of those ■who came from oversea to register. He thought it a wise policy to demand this high standard, and recommended urgently the people of New Zealand to be ever alert towards its maintenance in the safeguarding of themselves from the dangers of insufficient medical attention. Dr. Aickin responded in suitable terms.
