Mr Humphreys Owen in the House of Commons reply- ing-to suggestions to the oontrary, considered that the Welah oolleges gave full value for the monay voted by PMMtBMat. As to the &! e?Mtcn that they were not National Webb colleges, although there was a certain number of etadeuta from Rog?nd and Sootland, the great preponderance of i :tbe stadeuts were Welsh. -In Bangor Ocl age. for ^stance, out of.613 students since the college was toandect.ontyiaioame from outside the Princi- 11 ,pality. It was also shown tbat the numbers of students attending tbe colleges ware very much smaller than those attending the colleges of Eushid and Bcotttnd bat ths) excessive number in British colleges was obtained by countingiu the !evenÃ1 students, and to ,a great extent the exteo- Bior, students. f 4 compariBon was to be made the day students attending the Welsh oolleges would fcave no reason to be aahanud of tbeir num- bers aa .compared with the English callegoo. Ja England and Sootland, excluding London, the aveiage Attendance of students of this olass was 335, 111 Wales the corresponding nam bar was 227. It they took the population of England and Bcot- land and .compared it with the population of Wales they wonld find there was a larger propor- tion of daf atodents attending Welsh oolleges than English. Taking the number of students who attended more than three coursetof !ectares,or more than 125 hours in the oourse of tbe academical year, he 6>und that the uambers were-in Euglaad and Sootlaud, 197; apinst.07 in Wales. He considered that for the purposes of University higher educa- Boottaud, the ?u: roge6 rather excella ttie Englibb tion the Welsh oolleges rather excelled the EnglUh oollogem than fell short. It had been said tbat tba Welsh oolleges ware over-stated but, if anything, they were under-manned, and the proportion for the professors who bad taken degrees was large compared with the number of students. These facts clearly showed that the House got thorough value tor the grant they mads to these oolleges. SCOOBM I gooom 11 gooonu r! I What i W, O. Will lama's Sale.
