WELSH UNIVERSITY REFORM. The Western Mail calls attention to the necessity for reforming our University. "Evidence is accumulating," it says, that the present system is giving considerable dissatisfaction." Our con- temporary points out that Sir Marchant Williams and Mr. Llewelyn Williams have taken up the question, the latter writing that: 'A system which permits the president of a Newcastle science college to be the senior deputy-chancellor, and the registrar of the London University to be the junior deputy-chancellor, the vice-chancellor to be in Bangor and the headquarters to be at Cardiff, stands as self-condemned as the War Office. My only hope is that Sir Isambard will recognise the impossibility of the present arrange- ment, and will put a period to his exile on the confines of Ultima Thule. Surely, Wales can afford to recapture for her own service one of the -ablest and most sterling Welshmen that have ever devoted themselves to her interests ?' This gives voice to a feeling that has never been absent from the minds of Welsh educa- tionalists, and recently the hope has developed into an urgent consideration of ways and means. The position of vice-chancellor devolves in turn on the principals of the three University Colleges of Cardiff, Bangor, and Aberystwyth. It is realised that the enormous amount of work asso- ciated with the position is altogether too much for one who has also to perform the duties of principal. The removal of the senior deputy- chancellor to remote Newcastle has naturally added to the difficulties, and has brought home to many members of the university court the necessity of a rearrangement. It is too soon to speak of a definite scheme, but the idea which is taking form in the minds of ardent friends of the University of Wales is to appoint a distinguished man as chief official, who, by devoting all his time to the work, would be in a position to perform most of the duties now carried out by the deputy-chancellors and the vice-chan- cellor. The advantages of such a scheme are clear enough when compared with the present system, under which each of the four chief officials is located in his own corner of the country. To obtain a good man a substantial salary is needed, but those who face the position boldly are not afraid of the pecuniary question. A rearrangement of existing offices would give them a certain sum to start with a rearrange- ment of methods would release other amounts, and no fear is entertained that a salary could be offered which would induce a man of high capacity to take the new position. That some such arrangement is an urgent necessity must now be apparent to everyone, and, no doubt, it is this or a similar scheme Mr. LI. Williams has in his mind when he expresses a hope that Sir Isambard Owen may be recaptured for Wales."

IF any town has a right to complain of dumping it is Birmingham. One Welshman is the principal eye specialist, another the principal surgeon, another the principal dentist, another the headmaster of the biggest municipal secondary school, and it is, no doubt, a matter of course that the biggest draper is a Welsh- man. No wonder the Chamberlain of Bir- mingham calls for Protection. It retaliates by stealing Welsh water.

Oxford Notes. The Old Aberystwyth Society met on Monday, and the subject for discussion was "The Claims of Aberystwyth to the Welsh National Library." The decision was naturally in favour of the Society's Alma Mater. Mr. H. T. Tristram, of Jesus College, visited Aberystwyth on St. David's Day as the delegate of the Oxford Society. Annually the older Universities send up representatives to join in the celebrations of St. David's with the members of the University at Aberystwyth. Mr. J. T. Davies, of Jesus College, read his paper before the Davydd ap Gwilym Society on Saturday last. Esgob Morgan was the title, and Mr. Davies' paper gave rise to an interest- ing discussion on the influence of such men as Bishop Morgan on Welsh nationality. Arrangements were made for next term, and Mr. G. Hughes was elected secretary. The papers will include "Dewi Wyn" and Mynyddoedd Cymru," while at the Cwrdd Clebran, the first meeting of term, "Yr Eisteddfod will come under discussion. Term ended on Saturday, the 18th, and we reassemble on the 29th of April.
