THE VERDIN TECHNICAL SCHOOLS AT NORTHWICH. ♦ A joint meeting of the Northwich Urban Council, the Science and Art Committee, and the Verdin Trustees was held at Northwich on Tuesday evening, to consider what steps should be taken with regard to the management of the technical schools, built and furnished by Sir Joseph Verdin at a cost of £ 12,000. Mr. G. B. Cliff (chairman of the Urban Council) presided, and a large attendance included Sir John T. Brunner, M.P. (chairman of the Science and Art Committee), and Dr. Hewitt (the repre- AANFAFINA AP 4-1,- I"n_ PANNRTIU TKO NROQANF OVUVCHVITU V& UUC VUUIiUJ VVUUVUI* XUV technical classes have been controlled for 13 years by a self-elected committee, who 13 years by a self-elected committee, who were assisted by a contribution amounting to Id. in the pound on the ratable value of the district, from the local authority. The new schools have been conveyed to the Urban Council, and it was considered necessary, in order that their position as owners might be recognised, to make an alteration in the consti- tution of the committee. The matter was debated at great length, and ultimately it was resolved that the management of the schools should be vested in a committee consisting of the whole of the members of the Council (18), a like number of the old committee, the Verdin trustees and their two nominees, and the repre- sentatives of the County Council. All the obligations incurred by the Science and Art Committee were transferred to the new body, to whom the Council delegated the whole of its powers under the Technical Instruction Acts. Sir John Brunner asked for the opinion of the meet- ing as to whether it would be wise to attempt the establishment of an organised science day school. Only eleven applications had been received, and he did not think a population of 27,000, at the outside, was large enough to support such an institution without injuring the existing grammar school and high school for girls. A member of the Urban Council pointed out that at the two schools mentioned, the fees were £ 8 and L12, whereas it was only proposed to charge L4 at the technical schools. This should be an inducement to the working classes. Sir John Brunner considered it a great waste of energy to carry on the grammar school and an organised science school, and urged the meeting to do all they could to expedite the time when the technical schools and the town should have the benefit of the ancient endowments of the grammar school. The whole question was left in the hands of the Committee.
