UNIVERSITY COLLEGE OF NORTH WALES. The New Buildings.-A Valuable Contribution. The movement for raising a fund for the New Buildings of the University College of North Wales is steadily progressing. The amount promised or paid to the Fund is now over ^29,000, in addition to the free site pre- sented by the town of Bangor. The local committees in Portmadoc, Llanrwst, Trefriw, and some of the Flintshire centres are pro- ceeding with their canvass during the present month. The well-known artist, Mr. S. Maurice Jones, Carnarvon, is now engaged in painting a number of The Homes of Wales," comprising the residences of some of the most celebrated Welshmen of the past. He has signified his intention to present a number of these to the University College, to be put up in the New Permanent Buildings. This will be a most valuable contribution to a national institution of this kind. The value of the gift is further enhanced by the consideration that some of these old Homes have already disappeared to make room for more modern edifices. They will now be painted from sketches and photographs secured by Mr. Maurice Jones before they were removed. The educative value of such a collection in a college cannot be over estimated, and generations of Welshmen will thank the artist for the happy thought and valuable gift.
