SWANSEA 'VARSITY. Story of Past Efforts for Due Recognition. CHARTER GRANTED. As reported on page four, tl 3 King haf approve(hof the granting of a Charter fcf the Swansea Technical College, which wit HOW rank on an equality with the othef Constituent Colleges of the Welsh UniveS sity. Consequently the college attaint university rank. AF, far back as 1911 Dr. Varley, the then" Principal, reported upon the need of recognition and wrote in his 1913-14 repert3 Within the last three or four years thft'8 has been a strong movement towards affilia- tion or co-operation between the larger Technical Institutes and the newer Univer. sities." Mr. Richard Martin constantly urged the importance of it to the town, and when ex-Alderman David Davies was Mayor in 1916, a big town's meeting was held. at which many big subscriptions to- wards an Endowment Fund were announced from manufacturers and merchants, includ- ing th- -if Mr. T. J. Williams, M.P., -=- Alderman Ivor Cwynne (Chairman of the Swansea Education Committee). Mr. Roger BQI!3k, Baldwin's, w#!#- â aai others. The chamber of Commerce aJsf took the matter up, and in 1916 the annual report had this reference :â THE COLLEGE CLAIMS. ihe Committee has beea.y#ry active in bringing the claims of t?h-e' 'o be. fore the Education Authorities with th object of getting it recognised as a Con. stituent College of the University of Wales, with powers to qualify students for degrees; and to place the College on a. sound financial basis an Endowment Fund of nearly £ 100,000 has been guar- anteed bv the principal manufacturers and merchants of the town and district. Much of the credit for this magnificent fund is du, to His Worsh p the Mayor (Alderman David Davies), who has thrown himself "heart and soul into 'the work, wnich it is hoped will very shortly be crowned with success." THE ENDOWMENT FUND. !mce that time it has been deemed neek- sary to raise the amount of the Endowment Alderman David Matthews, M.P. (Vice-chairman of the Swansea Educatioa Committee). Fund to -0150.000 at the very least, in ordes to meet all the requirements laid down by the Royal Commission, that, with Lor Haldane as chairman, investigated Swan. sea's position on the. spot, and practically recommended the granting of Swansea's ra quest, which has now been acceeded to. The College Developmeht Scheme involvel the erection of a new University College foi the town, and now that Singleton has been aquired., the site of the new institution will probably be in these grounds. Mr. Richard Martin states: Swansea will have the great chance of its history in the matter of education. It will be placed on a footing equal to that of any town in the Kingdom, and in science and applied science I expect the college to take foremost rank." I REPRESENTATIVE OPINIONS. It should become the first of its kind in Great Britain, said Air. F. W. Gilbertson, the charman of the Technical College Com- mittee. He laid stress upon the need for the universitv spirit. Alderman Ivor Gwýnue and Mr. It J. Rees (director of education) also laid stress upon the desirability of developing general cultureâ"not an easy thing," said the latter. I
