OF THE COUNCIL vii of such generosity leaves the recipients without words adequate to express the gratitude that is felt Canon Abbott was able to leave the College with the only outstanding deficit removed But the cost of fuel food and wages continues to rise and it has become plain beyond dispute that the Hostel cannot avoid ever-increasing deficits unless there is corresponding increase in income There is no way in which additional students can be accommodated Miss Rope the Matron does all that can be done to secure vacation lettings but nothing can prevent last-minute cancellations On the recommendation of the Finance Committee the Council decided in July that fees at the Hostel must be raised by Ā£25 per annum as from October 1956 It is much to be hoped that this raising of fees will not cause hardship and that it will place Hostel finances on more satisfactory basis Two new boilers for the central-heating system have been installed Warminster The appointment of the Warden as Dean of the College meant an inevitable change of leadership half-way through the session This change was effected with the least possible disturbance of life and work by the Council's appointment of the Chaplain the Reverend Townroe to be the new Warden This appointment secures the con- tinuity of the Warminster pattern to which in the last seven and half years Mr Townroe has made his own distinctive and powerful contribu- tion and we can confidently expect that under his direction the Fourth- Year College will go from strength to strength in the service of the Church During the two remaining terms of the session the new Warden was ably assisted by the Reverend Lester-Garland and the Reverend Thompson-a former student of the College-who was making his first return to work after severe attack of poliomyelitis The College is indebted to these two men for their help during that period One outcome of this interim arrangement was the decision to invite Mr Thompson to become the Chaplain of the College at Warminster he was appointed by the Theological Committee in June For some years it has been hoped that the staff at Warminster could be increased from two to three as was recommended by both groups of inspectors This hope has now been attained by the appointment at the same meeting of the Reverend Cutt to be Tutor Mr Cutt gained high theological distinction in the Cambridge Tripos as student of Selwyn College before going to Cuddesdon He comes to Warminster after curacy of three years at St Aidan's West Hartlepool The question of the future relationship between King's College and the Governors of St Boniface College was considered by the Council in terms of memorandum drawn up by the Warden and the Chaplain
