38 report Α -In the Theological Department the number 01 students shows an increase of two and there is good reason for satisfaction with its condition The Council gratefully acknowledge the generous gift by clergyman formerly theological student of sum of £50 to help present students in need of such aid as he formerly received from the Exhibi- tions available in this Department and this assistance has been most opportune and welcome -The Department of General Literature has during the past year been placed in somewhat new position in consequence of the subject of Science having been transferred to an independent Department The arrangements of the Department are also of necessity in some suspense pending the Report of the Royal Commission on University Teaching in London of which the publication is imminent Until the position of this College and of Univeisity College in relation to the granting of degrees is settled it is not practicable to offer students sufficiently definite advantages either in respect of instruction or of academical privileges This Department has for years past suffered more than any other from the separation in London of University teaching from University examina- tions and the Council cannot anticipate the recovery of the for- mer vigour of the Department until the question which the Royal Commission have had to consider is definitely settled Important steps have been taken during the year by the Associated Chambers of Commerce at the instance of the London Chamber of Commerce towards encouraging system of liberal education specifically adapted to prepare young men for commercial life and throwing special stress upon the Modern Languages The organisation of the Department is readily capable of adaptation to the requirements of such an education without disturbing its main work and the Council are anxious to meet this increasing demand
