Suggests calling a Mackinnon Committee soon, as he has received a lot of applications, but has not had the authority to settle anything. Asks Herdman if he is thinking of having the Zoology Committee early next week, and if so if the Mackinnon meeting could be fitted in. Tuesday afternoon is taken up by the Physics Committee.
