Coultry Phone 492 The Alberta Meat Market Canada Food Board License Number 8-28(593. cs Influence of Air Work Having EflFect on Highed Education ^ in England London. .\ug. 17.-Several large sums of money have been given recently to leading Knglish universities for the establishment of professorships in. aeronautics, it is announced. The University of London maiie an announcement Thursday that it not only had accepted a gift, but proposed to start almost immediately systematic work in the science of aeronautics, as soon as a suitable appointment can be made to the chair. Two years ago when some of the oldest colleges and universities like Oxford and Cambridge were taken over in connection with the traiuing of air pilots, there were some misgivings in educational circles over invasion of scholastic haunts, but since that time several leading educators have issued statements declaring that this iuvasion is "no more than a symbol of the ren^aaissance of learning and an adaptation of old learning to modern needs." Although universities still maintain that the old colleges will be restored to their traditional use after the war. it appears evident that the influence of aeronautical work noy being done there will have a lasting effect on higher education in England. jfl-ready some of the more modern universities are discussing the practicability of offering, a special degree in aeronautics, in connection with special courses of teaching. These courses would be aimed at combining the work of experimentalists and theorists with that of practical fliers in the development of what is destined to become a big factor In industrial and national life. The influence of the colleges and universities also is having its effect on the lower technical SQhools throughout Great Britain. The schools are planning to offer courses in elements of aeronautics by which, after general technical work for one" year, the student can branch off into the more specialized subjects connected with the science and art of flying.
