The Granta, the Cambridge undergraduate journal which attracts so many

young journalists at the period when the pleasure of appearing in print is keenest and the burden of responsibility is lightest, is celebrating its fiftieth anniver- sary. Though many have become journalists and writers, not all who sharpened their wits in university journalism have remained faithful to the pen. Most of its past editors have attained eminence in later life, whether in politics, the church, the law, the services, and particularly, as is natural, in literature and journalism. It is a notable jubilee, and its past contributors and readers of many generations will every- where wish it continued prosperity.
