THE developments which the authorities of the Univer- sity College of North Wales have in view, assuming the necessary funds to be forthcoming, may be thus sum- marised I. Arts. Citizenship Course. A B.A. Course based mainly on History, Literature, and Moral Philosophy, intended, like the Greats School at Oxford, to turn out capable citizens rather than to train men specially for the learned professions. This would require a special increase in the staff of the French Department, besides the additions independently contemplated in those of Welsh, History, and Philosophy. II. Theology. The establishment of four new Chairs (or some of them) in (i.) History of Religion and Compara- tive Religion, (ii.) Philosophy of Religion, (iii.) Church History, (iv.) Hellenistic Greek. The reasons for this have been recently set forth at some length, and may be briefly summarised as follows :­ (1) The special interest Theology has for the Welsh mind, and the consequent desirability of developing Theological teaching in the University (2) The concentration of Theological Institutions at Bangor. III. Education. A post-graduate Research Faculty of Education specially concerning itself with (1) the Bi- lingual problem (2) Problems of Rural Education. There is at present no provision in Great Britain for investiga- tion in either of these directions. Bangor seems naturally marked out for the purpose (a) by its position as the intellectual centre of the district in which Welsh is most spoken, and the Welsh literary tradition is strongest; (b) by the fact that there are three training Colleges in the town, and a large number of schools (including six Secondary Schools) within a short radius. The appoint- ment of two research experts would be involved. IV. Applied Science. North Wales has two great industries, agriculture and quarrying. (1) A School of Agriculture was planned some years ago by Professor, now Sir James Dobbie, F.R.S., the first organised in connection with any University College in the CARDIFF.

In conformity with the injunction of the Prime Minister that the University should submit to the Government an agreed scheme for carrying out the pro- posals of the Commissioners, Cardiff as well as the other Colleges, has been examining possible modes of giving effect to the Report. The only substantial point of difference between the views of the University in general and Cardiff in particular on the one hand, and of the Com- BANGOR CHANGES By Principal Sir Harry Reichel, M.A., LL.D. Kingdom. It is proposed to expand this into a first-rate school in organic connection with the work which is being carried out in the counties of North Wales, and carrying on research in certain branches of agricultural investiga- tion not provided for in England or in the sister College at Aberystwyth. This development will involve a large increase in the existing staff. The buildings of this school will be the first charge on the North Wales Heroes Memorial Fund which is now being raised for the erection of new laboratories. (2) School of Quarrying. It was pointed out some years ago by a distinguished mining expert, Professor Louis of Newcastle, that no School of Mining in connection with Quarrying at present existed in the British Isles, that this was a serious desideratum, and that the only College which was so situated as to be able to supply it was the University College in the immediate neighbourhood of the great slate quarries of North Wales. This School would involve the appointment of three special lecturers, viz., Geology and Mining, Chemical Petrology, and Applied Electricity. (3) Domestic Science and Hygiene (with Rural bias). A school of University status, somewhat on the lines of the King's College School of Domestic Economy, for training teachers of household science, institutional administrators, sanitary inspectors, etc., and providing instruction in hygiene for training students. V. Extension Work. (1) W.E.A. Tutorial Classes. A great extension of these classes for workmen, especially in economics, history, literature (English and Welsh), and moral philosophy. (2) Music. A large organisation of work is being planned on the lines recommended by the Royal Com- mission. The College Authorities are convinced that no educa- tional developments are of greater importance than these for the well-being of the country. VI. Welsh Library. The Welsh Library is already unique in its collection of Welsh periodicals. It is pro- posed to strengthen it as a centre of research for students of the College and others interested in Welsh studies. AT THE COLLEGES mission on the other, concerned the constitution of the new Medical School. The Commission recommended the establishment of a separate College of Medicine. The Cardiff Council and Senate, with the almost unanimous support of the authorities of the other Colleges and of the University, pointed out the grave educational and administrative dis- abilities attaching to such a method of organization; and put forward an alternative scheme. That scheme has been under discussion by the various bodies concerned; and there is hardly any doubt but that, if the interested parties in South Wales and in the University can work out a satisfactory alternative to the Commission's suggestion, the Govern- ment will be willing to accept in this instance, the judgment of those most intimately concerned. Naturally other subjects have occupied much attention,— especially the possibilities of development in agriculture, law, technology, commerce and social administration, on the lines which the Commissioners prescribe
