Personal.—  The Alumni Association of the College of Medical Evangelists, Loma Linda, dedicated the March issue of its journal to the late Dr. Percy T. Magan, president of the college from 1928 to 1942 and president emeritus from then until the time of his death, Dec. 16, 1947.—Robert B. Witham, administrator of the Scripps Memorial Hospital, La Jolla, died July 4 of myocardial infarction.

Fellowship in Ophthalmology.—  Alumnae of the Upsilon chapter of the Delta Gamma Sorority of Stanford University have presented the university $41,000 for a fellowship in ophthalmology. The gift represents proceeds of the sale of the sorority house following dissolution of Stanford sororities in 1944. Presentation of the gift, which fits into a national Delta Gamma alumnae project for the care and prevention of blindness, followed approval by the Superior Court of Santa Clara County of the dissolution of the Stanford Delta Gamma Association as a corporation. Sorority gifts also included a contribution to the building fund of the Palo Alto Society for Blind.
