The Profession of Commerce On Monday a new and important

enterprise in the building up of "the profession of commerce" was started in London. Lord Luke gave details of a brief -Intensive Business Course, devised by some of our most far-sighted educationists and business heads, for bridging the gap between academic and business life. A house in Marlborough Gate, overlooking the Park, has been taken and the course will meet the needs of those leaving Public Schools as well as the Universities. In this context we note that Mr. Francis W. Goodenough returned to the attack on inefficient British salesmanship in his speech at the annual • dinner of the Cambridge Chamber of Commerce on Friday, April 25th (attended also by members of the University). He insisted on the necessity for the constant interpenetration of the influences of the market place and the study.
