To those already acquainted with the earlier books in the NEW BEACON SERIES, Book Five and Book Six will need no introduction. To those not familiar with their predecessors, it is sufficient to say that these new volumes are just as full as the earlier ones of the folk-lore stories, legends, and hero tales, told in simple, direct narrative form, that children love.

THE CLASSICS FOR CHILDREN
CHILDREN SERIES

The New Edition of this popular series now includes twenty volumes, the majority of which have been tested and "found worthy" by several generations of children. Each book is attractively and durably bound, contains many artistic illustrations, and is printed in bold, clear type.

Some favourite volumes: Andersen's Fairy Tales (two volumes), The Arabian Nights' Entertainments, Hans Brinker, Gods and Heroes, Tom Brown's School Days (with illustrations by Hugh Thomson), The Alhambra, The Peasant and the Prince, King of the Golden River, The Swiss Family Robinson.

THE STANDARD ENGLISH CLASSICS SERIES

This edition, which is suitable for use by students preparing for the First and Second School Examinations, now contains more than fifty volumes. While not encumbered with editorial matter, each volume contains notes and introductory material designed to help the student to form a critical estimate of the classic as a work of art, and to understand the reason for the place in literature which has been assigned to the book and its writer.

An illustrated List of Children's Books will be forwarded upon application.

We have received the prospectus of the UNIVERSITY COUNTRY CLUB to be established at Whiteleaf, Princes Risborough. The Directors, Mr. P. B. Ingham and Mr. T. Ll. Humberstone, are both well known in the educational world. Their object is to establish in the country a recognized centre for university men and women, giving the opportunity of social intercourse, fresh air, and exercise, and, not less important, of direct communion with Nature. The great growth and increasing distraction of London and other university cities, have rendered urgent the provision of some retreat in the country where university teachers and alumni can make their souls,' as the Irish say.”

The annual re-unions of UNIVERSITY CORRESPONDENCE COLLEGE are always happy gatherings when the Principal, Dr. William Briggs, and his staff meet many of their old students. The dinner held on November 9 was no exception. The toast of the University of London was proposed by Mr. B. J. Hayes, vice-principal of the College, who referred, in the course of his remarks, to coming changes in the regulations whereby honours or a pass may be awarded on the same set of papers in Economics (1924) and in Science and Laws (1926). Among the distinguished visitors were Sir Sydney Russell-Wells, Dr. A. E. W. Hazel, Prof. G. H. Bryan, F.R.Š., and Dr. J. Welton.
