one state precisely how cultural power is made operative? I might just as well ask the writer to tell me exactly what are these spiritual values which may so easily get lost. I might just as well ask him precisely how they become operative in the lives of men and women. Primary, secondary, and university education appear to be generally accepted as forms of education which take especial care that spiritual values" shall not be lost. Could the writer tell me their exact cultural direction" and state "precisely" how they operate to guard against such loss? God taught us to read: He lent us this world for a book," wrote someone. It is a book of many volumes, and we all try to read its varied and fascinating pages. And when, in rare ecstatic moments, our reading fires us with wonder-when, perhaps, the page presents to us a dawn, obliterating with rosy fingers the silver fire of the moon, or the delicate precision of masses of gleaming machinery moving swiftly and surely in service of man, we are not apt to turn to the niceties of debate, and to explain precisely the anatomy of beauty. Nor can we afterwards explain exactly which of our spiritual values have been heightened or in what exact direction our culture has been increased.

WOMEN AT OXFORD
The decision taken by Congregation at Oxford on June 14, to which you refer on page 493 of your July issue, is a partlysuccessful effort to check the future extension of the education of women at the University, but it is of no immediate importance. Attempts had been made to reduce the number of women undergraduates, to fix it at about what it is at present, to make it depend on variations in the number of new undergraduates, and to introduce a limitation of matriculations, which would have created constant friction and annoyance. These have fortunately been abandoned and all that will actually happen is the limitation by statute of the number of resident women undergraduates, which will be fixed for two women's colleges at 160 each and for two at 150 each, making, with the homestudents, who come under another statute, a possible total of about 820. This is about 100 more than are at present in resi dence. Each college had already, by formal resolution, fixed its own number at something rather under what is specified in the statutes; and was prepared to undertake not to increase it for ten years. No great significance need be attached to the "anti-millionaire" legislation which is directed against the remote possibility of a new college, because the already existing statute was so framed as almost to preclude a new foundation, except by Act of Parliament. The University would have to show much better cause than it can show at present for refusing the benefactions of founders who had enough influence to secure such an Act.
No one can really believe that Oxford is likely to lose its predominantly masculine character so long as it retains its collegiate system. This is perhaps the strongest force in the University and its best security against any rapid increase in numbers. A college, whether of men or women, must provide itself with buildings and teachers and cannot look to the University to supply them. Unfortunately this question of limitation, which might have led to a careful consideration of facts and policies and been settled by friendly agreement, was, under the influence of a sort of anti-feminist panic, so dealt with in its earlier stages as to create suspicion and annoyance and to give a great amount of unnecessary trouble to the women's colleges. When it was plain that they would strongly oppose the curtailment of their privileges, but were prepared to offer the compromise mentioned above, a more reasonable and courteous line was adopted and the bitterness of feeling which had been feared was averted. The matter was almost settled by an arrangement which would have secured to the existing colleges their dignity and autonomy, if their representatives would have undertaken not to oppose legislation which would discourage benefactions (Continued on page 656)

for the foundation of a new college. To do this would have shown that they were prepared to sacrifice the educational interests of women in general to the particular interests of their societies, and they unanimously refused. The whole business has been no great credit to the University. It was vexatious and unnecessary, and not in accordance with the past traditions of Oxford, but it need not be taken too seriously or held to justify the need for a
Topics and Events
NEW ROUTE TO THE CONTINENT-At the invitation of the London Midland and Scottish Railway, a representative of the Journal of Education was enabled to test the new route to the Continent recently opened by that railway. The port of departure is Tilbury and of arrival, Dunkirk, the church of the Dunes,' an important harbour and city not far from the Belgian frontier. The daily service leaves St. Pancras at 10.30 p.m. and the boat arrives at Dunkirk at 6 a.m., Paris being reached at 10.20 a.m. Other special services give connexions with Brussels, Switzerland, and Italy. Dunkirk is a convenient centre for visits to the battlefields and war cemeteries, Ypres, Armentières, Bethune, Arras, and Albert being all within easy reach by train. Adjoining Dunkirk is the seaside resort Malo-les-Bains, offering excellent bathing, bracing air, and a vast expanse of fine hard sand, as well as the usual amenities of French seaside resorts. With the new easy access from London, Malo-les-Bains should become a popular resort with English visitors. The new route to the Continent is of special value to residents in the north of England, who are saved the time and expense of crossing London and are provided by the railway with through coaches to Tilbury. The sea service is undertaken by three French boats, and the " open sea passage is short. An advantage of the route-probably, like Dr. Johnson's youth, only transient-is that at present it is less congested than other routes. Its economy and convenience are, however, sure to be generally recognized and appreciated.
Liverpool from July 28 to August 13 under the direction of Prof. E. Allison Peers. As in past years, members of the School were graded in four divisions for daily classes in the Spanish language, and each class in turn was subdivided for conversation, the work being conducted in Spanish throughout except in the class for beginners. A feature of the morning's work was gramophone practice in intonation, following the method of past years. In the afternoons were given courses of lectures on Spanish Phonetics, modern Spanish poetry, and the history of Spanish-America. A course of lectures was also given after tea on Spain in 1927" which proved of particular interest. In 1928 the Summer School of Spanish will meet at Santander during the whole of the month of August. There will be both elementary and advanced classes, together with the usual programme of evening lectures in Spanish and excursions to places of interest. Preliminary information and advice on preparatory reading may be obtained on application to the Director, Summer School of Spanish, University of Liverpool.
