£ 40,000 FOR COLLEGE EX- I I TENSIONS. NEW NAME ,FOR SWAN- SEA INSTITUTION. The Swansea Technical College Sub-Com- mittee met on Friday, the Mayor (AM. D. Da vies) -presiditig.. Regarding e-le evidence given before the Royal Commission, the Mayor suggested j that the detailed report be deferred until j they had the printed word of the evidence, He added that the impression brought away by the Swansea deputation was that the Com- lussioners were exceedingly sympathetic to the claims of Swanseo. Mr. David Matthews observed that the case was admirably got, up. The Mayor agreed and aid that new points were put and in this respect the members were expressing individual opinions. in the^neantime they had cloii, a great deal to get the co-operation of Llanelly. He thought there was no question that the atmosphere of Llanelly was now most friendly towardfc the Swansea College, and he believed they were going to get very valuable support. The visit to the college by the Llanelly Edu- cation Committeee showed that they were surprised and impressed, and broadly Mr. r. J. Rees and himself s&id to Llanelly, Go as far as you can in training local stu- dents in technology, and, having done that, provide them with am easy means of access to Swansea through entrance scholarships to the Swansea College." He was very hopeful that rubstantial support would be forthcom- ing from Llanelly in that manner. Mr. Beaumont Thomas (for Messrs. Rd. Thomas r and Co.) had given £ 1,000' and said it would be more but for the offer of his firm, Messrs. Richard Thomi-a and Co., to Llan- Ielly. He (the Mayor) hoped that the bulk t of the donation promised to Llanelly would be used for the purpose of providing schol- arsb-ild-s for Llanelly students at the. Swan- sea College. Mr. Matthews said that the deputation from Llanelly were surprised to know that the plans of the new college were prepared before the war and that the cost involved an estimated expenditure of about £ 30,000. K The matter dropped. 5 The Board of Education wrote approving 3 of the planli of the new college buildings, subject to certain minor alterations. 1 The Borough Architect (Mr. Broadhead) •- estimated that the extra cost would b9 o £ 5,000, based on pre-war prices. 1 Aid. 1i1: That means ?10,000 now. f It was agreed to apply to th? Local Government Board for sanction to borrow 1 £ 40,000 to carry out the scheme. J A New Name. Regarding a suggestion to alter the name of the College, Mr. T. J. Rees, the Director of Education, said that if the status of the College became increased, then the constitu- tion of the governing body would have to be altered within the pleasure of the Privy Council. Mr. Matthews said that the Commis- sioners were very keen upon works pro- prietors being co-optated. The Mayor: And representatives of the Welsh University. It was unanimously resolved to change the name of the College to The Swansea and West Wales Technical Collage." Evening Classes. Dr. Varley, the principal, gave a report on the evening class enrolment, and this showed in regard to males over 19 that from 1910 to 191j the munber steadily went up, when it dropped to about one-third in 1916. u so many of them were called to the Colours. The number of males under 19 had steadily increased since 1910 Hght- W and thatw" Te- flected in the work done, as these students attended more classes per Kt-ek than the older students. He further tP, ported that the College were about to h3 asked to train 40 instead of 20 men of the Royal Flying Corps, and that this would entail enlarging the workshop at the expense of the Ministry of Munitions.— The reports were adopted, and the architect given instructions to prepare the necessary plans. Mining instruction. A small sub-oommittee was struck to outline a scheme for providing mining; instruction in the college, the Mayor ob- serving that they wanted the assistance j of the colliery owners. j Dr. Varley suggested that the schojar- VL es be extensdu!g f eate d that the sch olar-. ships be extended so as to include West Wales boys. The Mayor replied that he was hoping that they would be able in a short time to arrange a systematic scheme of scholar- ships embracing Port Talbot down to Llanelly. It was reported that Mr. Wm. James, the secretary, was still very ill. Students Who Fell. It was decided to send a vote of con- dolence with the relatives of. the late Second-Lieutenant Fortune and Pte. R. A. Wilson, A.R.I.B.A., both excellent studen-bri, baid Dr. Varley, of the Swansea Technical College..
