Presidential Address by Prof. Sir ARTHUR KEITH, M.D., LL.D., F.R.S.
'Darwin's theory of Man's Descent as it stands today'
Relayed from the Majestic Cinema, Leeds
THE annual meetings of the British Association bring together savants from all the branches of science, and the papers read before its assemblies, if they do not often publish any new discoveries of epoch-making importance, usually sum up the year's progress in scientific research. Tonight listeners will hear the presidential address of Sir Arthur Keith , the famous anthropologist and anatomist, on the position of the Darwinian theory today. It is nearly seventy years since first ' The Origin of Species ' fluttered the Victorian dovecotes, and in the meantime-especially of recent years-much evidence has been discovered that goes to modify the original theory as Darwin announced it then. It will bo particularly interesting to hear the present position reviewed by Sir Arthur Keith , whose opinion on all anthropological questions carries such weight.
