THE ANNUAL MEETING.

The fiftieth annual meeting of the Society was held in the Union Refectory, University of Sydney, on Wednesday, 24th July, 1929, at 8 p.m., fifty members and visitors being present. The visitors included the Hons. D. H. Drummond iMinister for Education), representing the Government; R. T. Ball iMinister for Lands), and E. H. Farrar (Minister for Labour and Industry). The honorary secretary read the

Fiftieth Annual Report.

On 30th June, 1929, there were 453 members on the Register, divided into the various categories as follows: Associate benefactors 3, life mem- bers 30, ordinary members 265, life associate members 23, associate members 122, honorary member.* 6. honorary associate memters 4. Six members died during the year, fifteen resigned, the names of ten members were removed from the Register, and 48 new members were elected, giving a net increase of 18 members for the year.

The Council.

A vacancy in the Council occurring through the resignation of Mr. R. C. Dixson, in June, 1929, was filled by the election of Professor W. J. Dakin. Eleven meetings of Council were held during the year, at which the at- tendances were: Mr. Hull 11, Messrs. Bryce and Troughton 10, Drs. D'Ombrain and Waterhouse, Messrs. Cayley, Kinghorn and Musgrave 9, Messrs. Froggatt and Roughley 8, Messrs. Chisholm and Halloran 7, Dr. Nicholson and Mr. Stead 6, Mr. Dixson 5, Mr. Coles 4, and Mr. Pollock 3. The two latter councillors were granted leave of absence for the greater part the year.

Sections.

The attendance at the meetings of the sections has been steadily main- tained, and in the near future steps must be taken to secure the use of a larger room, as our present seating accommodation, limited to 35, is fre- quently insufficient.

The Australian Zoologist.

Parts 3 and 4, completing volume 5, were issued during the year, and the Society was again enabled to present two plates in colour.

2 ANNUAL REPORT.

Finances.

The funds now stand higher than ever before, the Jubilee Com- memoration appeal being responsible for the substantial increase. It will be noted that the Government grant of £50, which was paid from 1922 to 1926, has not appeared in the balance sheet for this or the previous year, the Department on whose estimates the grant is voted annually being of opinion that the Society is financially able to function without a Govern- ment subsidy.

The Society's Jubilee.

On 23rd March, 1929, a function was held at Taronga Zoological Park, to celebrate the completion of the fiftieth year of the Society's existence. A number of representative citizens were invited to meet the Council and members at afternoon tea, and the Hons. D. H. Drummond and R. T. Ball, Ministers for Education and Lands respectively, represented the Government, the former delivering a short address to those present. The President outlined the work of the Society, and appealed for funds to en- able the production of Australian Zoological Handbooks for the use of the higher schools and the younger students of natural history. The response to this appeal has been fairly encouraging, but owing to the many other appeals launched about the same time the Society has not pressed its claims, but is content to wait until a more favourable period. In the mean- time its work of preparing the manuscript of the Handbooks is being pushed on.

The following contributions to the Handbook Publication Fund have been received:

Miss E. Hume-Barbour, £106; Albert Littlejohn, £100; A. A. Lawson, £50; Robert C. Dixson. £25; Walter and Eliza Hall Trust, £20; J. R. Wallace and Aubrey Halloran, £5/5/- each; H. J. Cantor, £5; G. H. Wyld, £3/3/-; P. Shipway, E. J. Loxton, R. A. Marks, W. C. Cormack, L. Ennis, E. J. Bryce, Miss V. A. Bartlett, Dr. C. Anderson, A. S. Le Souef, £2/2/- each; B. R. Gelling, £2; W. H. Barkley, A. E. Williams, and J. R. Kinghorn, £1/1/- each; H. G. Kilby, £1; small amounts, 15/-; total, £345/9/-. Mrs. C. T. Newman has contributed £5/5/- to capital account.

At the suggestion of Miss Hume-Barbour, a Women's Auxiliary has been formed to raise funds for the publication of Handbooks. His Ex- cellency the Governor General, Lord Stonehaven, and Lady Stonehaven have accorded their patronage, and the officers are: President, Mrs. Norman Lowe; vice-presidents, Lady Poynter, Miss Hume-Barbour, Mrs. Walker Jones, and Mrs. Price Conigrave; honorary secretary and organiser, Mrs. Emily Bennett; honorary treasurer, Mrs. Edmond Gates. It is desired that ladies willing to act on the committee or to assist in the work of the auxiliary should communicate with Mrs. Bennett, Box 2399 M.M., G.P.O., Sydney.

Honorary Auditor.

By the death of Mr. E. E. Coates the Society has lost a valued honorary officer who had acted as auditor, not only ever since the incorporation of the Society in 1917, but for some years previously in the old Moore Park days. The vacancy has been filled by the election of Mr. R. J. Stiffe, of the firm of Coates, Cunningham & Co., who has kindly consented to take over the office so ably filled by his late partner.

ANNUAL REPORT. 3

Associate Benefactors.

For their valuable services to the Society in connection with the Jubilee Commemoration Fund, Miss Emily Hume-Barbour and Mr. Albert Littlejohn were elected associate benefactors.

Taronga Park Trust.

By the death of the Hon. Frederick Flowers, M.L.C., late chairman of the Taronga Park Trust, the Society has lost a former member of Council, who represented the Government prior to the Society's incorporation. Although he did not continue a member, he was always interested in the Society's progress, and did much to maintain cordial relations between it and the Trust. The vacancy on the Trust was filled, as already announced, by the appointment of Mr. Aubrey Halloran. a member of Council of the Society. Colonel Alfred Spain, now chairman of the Trust, Mr. P. B. Colqu- houn, Dr. R. H. Todd, and Mr. A. F. Basset Hull, other members of the Trust, are also members of the Society.

Balance Sheet.

The honorary treasurer, Mr. Phillip Shipway, moved the adoption of the report and balance sheet. The motion was seconded by Colonel Alfred Spain, and carried.

The six retiring members of Council, Messrs. Neville W. Cayley, A. Halloran, A. F. Basset Hull, David G. Stead, E. L. Troughton, and Professor W. J. Dakin, were re-elected.

The president then read his address (see page 6).

OUR NATIVE FAUNA— A WASTED ASSET. By A. F. Basset Hull.

Nature took millions of years in evolving the unique fauna of Australia, and for other millions of years it has remained at that stage of development at which Nature left it, while she passed on to other lands to evolve other and distinctive faunas. Now that element of ruthless destruction, man, is doing his best to exterminate Nature's work in a couple of centuries, and
