It is significant that there are four Empire Conferences concerned with education being held in Lotidon this summer —the Universities Empire Conference which was held at the beginning of this month, the British Social Hygiene Council is holding its Empire Conference, and in Sep- tember there will be the meeting of the British Association under the chairmanship of General Smuts. Is it not a sign of the times that when political and economic conferences produce rather poor results these educational forces within the Empire are making steady headway ? The British Commonwealth Education Conference will take place in the week beginning July 24th. Inquiries should be addressed to me.—CLARE SOPER, Organizing Secretary, 11 Tavistock Square, London, W.C. 1.
