THE IINIVERRTTY OF WALES. «. EXTENSION OF THE CHARTER. A meeting of the Court of the University of Wales was held at Shrewsbury on Friday, under the presidency of Dr. Isambard Owen, the senior deputy chaplain. The principal business was the procedure to be adopted in considering a memorial of the county borough of Swansea that the Swansea Technical College be declared a college in which students may pursue courses of study for the degress of the University. The whole matter, with the principle it was said to raise of an open door to further extension, was exhaustively de- bated in a sitting lasting over five hours. The Standing Executive Committee submitted the following two alternatives: (a) Of having the Swansea Technical College declared by a supple- mentary charter or extension of the present charter to be a constituent college; (b) of obtain- ing a relaxation of the obligation contained in the charter that a candidate for an initial degree should have studied at a constituent college. Mr. Brynmor Jones moved an amendment that if the County Council or county borough of Swansea should petition the Privy Council to declare the Swansea Technical College a con- stituent college of the University, the court should signify its assent to the making, of a supplementary charter and support the petition. In his opinion it would be far better for Swansea to appeal to the Privy Council than for the court to do it. He asked the court to say that they were willing to encourage every institution like Swansea College, and that they would support them if they were public spirited enough to appeal to the Privy Council for an extension of charter. (Applause.) Mr. Marchant Williams seconded the amend- ment. Principal Reichel said it was with great reluctance that he opposed Mr. Brynmor Jones's proposal. They were at the parting of the ways and the question was whether it should be "the more the merrier" or maintaining a few institu- tions and those of high rank. Ultimately a resolution was adopted nem. con. that the appeal of the Swansea Corporation could best be met by an extension of the charter that would give the University power to admit to privileges any institution possessing adequate facilities in point of equipment and staff for the teachuig covering the whole course of work for an initial degree in any faculty, the privileges being at least those of presenting candidates for degrees in that faculty under XIV. of the charter.
