i TRAININC COLLEGE NOT TO COME ON THE RATES AFTER ALL Whefi the Swansea Council had to bud- get for the present year's calls, they had to make allowances lor the sum of and even the rates towards the uuiinteli- ance of the Swansea Trainjiig College. The Finance Committee of the Training College brought this request for assistance with regret to the Education Authority; because they, ÏíI cohimuh with lnost peo- ple. had believed from the start that the Training College Would be independent of the ratt-zi. tit,, increase in the cost oi iootl aild malerial, and the re- adjustment of aaturips, led to such a financial position that there was nothing for it but the realisation, under the ex- ceptional cirfculiilftances, that the times rendered it iieSPSSary to come upon the public flit support. iH.'e tllelii llc)Wevcr> the Finance Com- mittee. of the Ti-aJtiing College has tran acted :t rtfy aatipiuctory piece of business.

A short [ time before tHi Sanrlell. of Llan- i dclar^g, saw 'the reVftrend gentleman opening the front gate of the Tic'arage as if preparing to go out with hi,3 car, and she heard the car starting in the Garage.

WAR ON WOUNDED1 MORE BRITISH HOS- Ii PITAlS. BOMBED ¡ BRITISH FRONT, June 2. I A group of British hospitals, was bombed and partially destroyed during extensive air raids on the back areas on Friday I night. In one hospital four wards were destroyed and several othfcr hospitals were 1-1) badly damaged as to be uninhabitable. I The datiiages included the demolition of a I hospital sergeant?'' mess and of an operat- ing theatre. r The casualties were much lighter than might have been expected, as the majority j I of wards involved were far trfiDl full. The attacking aeroplanes flew very low. In I at least one instance a flare was lit by the raidert* just before the bombs Itere dropped. MURDERER'S INSOLENCE. ¡ Writing on the Devil's Work of (hose German airmen who 60 deliberately bombed the great hospital at Etaples, the; j Hospital" remarks:—" As we were pre- paring this article a striking piece of ev i- dence of the truth of what is here urged Was brought to us by a great hospital ^ifi- i fcial Who had come frofn the bedside of one of the patients who occupied a bed t Etaples on that fatal Sunday eveft L ig. There were vacant beds in his Ward, an (I one of them was soon occupied by i\< captain of the German Gotha broufcht down, or his colleague who escaped death with him but was injured. In the barest possible way this man Mtsisted upon the officer in command b?- I :u? ?<mt for. When he arrived the Ue?-- man demanded that he should ut <mc6 bo transferred to England, oil the ground that ho was a combatant., and under 1 lie ¡ regulations he could not be retained in the cent re of a war area, which Etaples was, as the raid that night had shown, and otliev raids would prove it to be in the near future. When he persit?d, he was informed that not only would he not b6 removed, but if other raids were coming, ¡. or in any case. he would be the very last living man to be moved from his bed."
