There will be a great alteration in the examinations for admission into College this year.

The examination will not take place with the Exhibition examinations at Easter, & 3 candidates from without the school under 14 years of age will be allowed to enter without passing a year in the school, as has been the rule, as the first three of the Exhibitioners will have the option of going at once into College or of remaining T.B.B. as at present.

Mr. H.A. Severn, who has been very successful as a scientific lecturer in Australia & New Zealand, gave three lectures to us in school on Jan. 29th, Feb. 5th and 7th upon Voltaic Electricity, Spectrum Analysis and Magnetism. The lecturers were very well attended by members of the school & by a few visitors, & were very interesting. Mr. Severn is a brother of an old Westminster.

No. 371

A School Debating Society has at last been started. We got leave from Scott in the beginning of this term & the society is now, I hope, well founded. After three 4 debates, under the presidency of Lowry (captain) & Cuppage, a rule was passed to appoint the officers of the Society for a term instead of three weeks as had been originally ruled. Accordingly they were appointed as follows

President – H. Lowry (Captain of the school)

Vice President – W.A. Peck (a 3rd election)

Secretary – W.G. Bell (head town boy)

Treasurer – E.P. Guest (2nd monitor)

The original officers were these, with the exception of Peck, who took the place of E.M. Eddis (head monitor). The debates to take place in school on Fridays.
