The Council of the Working-Men's College are arranging to send

teachers to various parts of London, wherever evening- classes of working-men can be formed. The working population being scattered over such an enormous area, it is impossible for all would-be students of the College to attend its classes. The Council have, therefore, resolved to send, whenever it is possible, teachers to the students, as the students cannot go to the teachers. The Working-Men's Club and Institute Union are co-operating with the College, and it is hoped that by October classes in several clubs will be formed. Co-operative Societies and other bodies of working-men are also invited to form classes; and if the plan succeeds, as we cordially hope it may, classes of working-men, taught by members of the Universities and of the different professions, will soon be at work in many of the work- ing-class suburbs of London. By this means the College hopes to realise more fully than it has hitherto done the idea of its founder, Frederick Denison Maurice, viz., "to unite these classes by associating them in the common work of teaching and learning."
