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.

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
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
