Transcript 76 GREAT BRITAIN AFTER THE WAR. 4* in England and Wales) to be made fully accessible to every young man and woman, however poor, who shows promise of becoming qualified to be one of the nation's statesmen, administrators, thinkers, investigators, teachers, scientists, authors, journalists, artists, managers, engineers, lawyers, etc.—no individual not exhibiting such potentiality, however rich his parents, to be allowed to usurp the accommodation at any University. This means the application of a reallv substantial Matriculation or School Leaving Examination, or other adequate test, to all candidates for University training. 2. In its own interest the community must demand at Oxford and Cambridge the replacement of " Unphilosophical classics and Little-Go Greek for everybody, mathematics, bad French, ignorance of all Europe except Switzerland, forensic exercises in the Union Debating Society, and cant about the Gothic," by thoroughness of knowledge, pr6duced through really efficient instruction, in the subjects (including physical and biological science, as well as philosophy and economics) required to fit a man to be a brain-worker in the service of the community. 3. The University-trained class needs multiplying beyond the capacity of a mere half-dozen centralised Universities Every large city needs its own University. The number of students at our Town Universities (not 20,000 in all—in con trast with the 100,000 claimed for the City of Tokyo alone ') requires to be increased at least tenfold by the wider provision of really adequate Maintenance Scholarships (not less than £100 a year) available for every promising student This means the national endowment of Town Universities to facilitate specialisation along certain lines (as Sheffield specialises m metallurgy, London (at the School of Economics and .Political Science) in economics and public administration) But such Town Universities should also play a dominant part in the improvement of conditions and the enrichment of the life of the localities m which they are situated (as the University of Wisconsin, for example, has done in that State in America). 4. Moreover, liberal provision has to be made for the prosecution of ongmal work and research, not in physical science !£n%nm eV6/y ^Tf °f 'f^g-upon the amplitude and thoroughness of which depend the solving of social, industrial political and a 1 other problems, the increase of culture and beauty and, m fact, the security and enrichment of our civilisation. r
