Richmond, who took the course for Ph.D. in English and obtained that distinction in 1923. The second, Miss W. Young, chose chemistry, and took her Ph.D. in 1929.

C. Peters (Christchureh). ROWING AND RUGBY. Of the four heats decided at Cambridge yesterday, in the Cambridge University light fours, the third, in which Third Trinity, the holders, and Jesus were engaged, attracted the mqst attention. The way in which Third Trinity won suggested that nothing bar an accident could prevent them registering their ninth successive win in this event on Saturday, when the final will be rowed. Third Trinity led over the whole course, and steered very well indeed. Jesus lost much ground by erratic steering at pike and eel. Conditions were not good, and the crews had a stiff head wind to contend with in long reach. Details: — Seeoiul Bound. —Heat H: Lady Margaret (D. Heig-Thomas, Eton, bow; F. M. Symonds, Bedford; B. H. H. Symonds, Bedford; F. J. Connell, Merchiston, stroke) beat Jesus 11. (L. Shepherd, Shrewsbury, bow; M. A. Belleville, Malvern; C. J. B. Palmer, South Africa; T. Beed, New Zealand, stroke) by thrce-quartera of a length. After a close game yesterday, the Oxford Greyhounds beat Oxford University at Oxford by two goals and a try (13 points) to a goal and two tries (11 points). One of the Greyhounds was W. G. Kalaughcr (N.A. and Balliol), one of the losing side was W. E. Henley (Otago and New College)— both Bho'des Scholars. "The Times" correspondent at Oxford says that the first try of the match was duo to a brilliant cut through by M'Canlis, and Kalaugher simply had to use his pace to run in between the posts. The same player scored a second try, forcing his way through a loose scrummage. Such was the result of Saturday's match played at Portsmouth —one of the finest matches seen there for a very long while. After a struggle for which the lead constantly changed hands, Oxford won by a margin of only three points—three placed goals and a try to three placed goals. W. E. Henley was one of the 'Varsity forwards. He failed to convert a try secured by Cardale. D. Orr-Ewing, in the forward pack for Services, robbed Oxford of a try by intervening just in the nick of time.
