An Excellent Suggestion.

ONE suggestion that is understood to have been made before the Committee and which would seem, from certain comments that have appeared in a section of the Press, to have met with a very large measure of support was that the Government College should either become a University College or its buildings, grants, etc. be handed over to the University to use as it thinks fit. We have no hesitation in according our general support to the proposal. There was a time in our educational history when the maintenance of more or less model institutions by Government was essential. That time is long past, and the Government Colleges have long ceased to be the model colleges that they were at one time. At present their existence only prevents Government from treating all the several Colleges more or less on the same footing. Having served their purpose, those Colleges should now become the property of the University, that is, of all the several residential colleges, forming component parts of the University, which may be trusted either to maintain them on such a footing that they might still be model institutions in a limited sense, or to so use them to diffuse their benefits among the whole body of students. At the same time, the Government, thus relieved from the direct management of one particular institution, might well be trusted to turn its energies to rendering that helpful assistance to all which none but itself can render to them. The change will also have other incidental advantages on which it is scarcely necessary to dwell at present.
