The College Council has completed its deliberations in all these various matters; and if the other authorities in the University have been equally diligent and expeditious, the whole scheme may very well be ready for submission to the Government in the course of a few months. The signing of the Armistice is already exercising a great and pleasant influence on College life. Students and members of the teaching staff are returning from the Army and Navy in considerable numbers. The University Senate has made the necessary arrangements for the relaxation of certain conditions as to residence and number of courses for those students whose studies have been interrupted; but many individual cases occur which cannot easily be dealt with under general regulations, and for these special provision is being made by the University and the College. The arrangements so far have worked extremely well. The movement to provide a suitable War memorial in the College is gradually taking shape. Various suggestions have been canvassed, but the most widely accepted is that buildings for a Students' Union should be erected, containing a permanent memorial record of the names of those who have served and of those who have died. This plan has been brought before the Association of Past Students, and it is hoped that it will be authoritatively launched within a few weeks. ABERYSTWYTH.

Even at the beginning of the Session there was a large number of students, and now that the men Reconstruction has achieved something of the importance of that blessed word Mesopotamia-it is long, difficult and shrouded in mystery. Much is being published and written on the subject generally, but vague ideas seem to be prevalent both as to the nature of the problems and the forms of their solution. Thanks to the enterprise of the Editor, who has generously offered space for the consideration of questions affecting Wales, it is proposed to discuss on this page the numerous government papers, and other local schemes which are engaging the attention of central and local governments. During the early months of the year 1917-18, the Welsh National Association for Reconstruction was formed to investigate problems of s Reconstruction with special reference to Wales, and to publish the result of these investigations; to examine proposals for Reconstruction put forward, and to stimulate, and if possible direct public action on the most important matters of public policy. Most significant, however, is the last of the objects of the Association To secure public recognition of the need:- (1) For the awakening and developing of the Spirit of Service in which everyone is recognised as belonging to one Brotherhood, having duties and rights in relation to the well being of the Nation as a whole, and in which religious, educational, industrial, political and civic activities are regarded as essential features of the whole life of the community. (2) For the deepening of the sense of solidarity between all sections of the community. (3) For securing the fullest possible opportunity for the realisation of the highest forms of personal life, and for the development of individual capacity. Two Branches were formed, one in South, the other in North Wales. The two branches have up to the present worked upon similar lines of policy. They have endeavouied to stimulate public opinion by frequent Conferences, and they have appointed expert Committees which have investigated some of the most pressing of Welsh problems. In South Wales public conferences have been held to discuss the following subjects: (I) The Report on Industrial Unrest in South Wales (opened by Mr. E. L. Chappell, the Secretary of the Commission). (2) The Whitley Report *The Secretaries of the South Wales Branch are :
