Date18 January 1916
DescriptionInforms F. J. King Esquire that the only circumstances in which the Society has the power to intervene with the recruiting authorities are: 1) in the case of persons actually engaged in war work and 2) in the case of analytical, consulting or research chemists, who fall under the Reserved Occupations Regulations. Suggests that Mr. King might be better placed to approach the Board of Education who have lately issued a memorandum upon the subject of advanced University students.
