^k Minute   of appreciation  of  Dr.   S.   D.   Scott's  services
to   the  University  and  of   Senate's   regret   at
his   passing.
We realize that, in the passing of Dr. S. D.
Soott, the University has lost an able supporter,
x a wise counselor, and a loyal friend.  Even before
the opening of the University in 1915, his worth
as an educational counselor was recognized and his
services secured to assist in making plans for
K higher education in. this province.  As a member of
the Board of Governors and Honorary Seoretary of
that body from the time of its inception in 1913,
i he rendered invaluable service.  As an editorial
writer, both before and since the opening of the
University, he did splendid work in guiding publio
r opinion in regard to University problems.
As members of Senate we would express our
feeling of personal loss.  His ripe scholarship,
< sound judgment, broad sympathies, and clear
educational outlook, coupled with an unfailing
cheerfulness and kindliness, made him at all times,
a most congenial co-worker.  We, therefore, join
with all friends of higher education in this 349

regret at his passing.
The members of the Senate of The University
of British Columbia desire to express to Mrs.
Grojean their deep sympathy on the occasion of the
death of Mr. G. Grojean, and wish to assure her
of their consciousness of the great loss suffered
by the University as well as by herself. —  We
all pay tribute to the memory of Professor Grojean
for his ability, his energy, and his tireless interest
in the valuable service which he rendered so
