did not lose sight of the fact emphasised by Dr. Kolbe, that the Cape University might evolve slowly in the direction they desired, and he disclaimed any intention to advocate that they should mend the Cape University by ending it. In fact, in every one of the possible schemes which he brought forward he tried to avoid taking the Cape University into account, either in its present capacity, or modified as the centre of an affiliation scheme, or alongside of the teaching University. Professor Crawford seemed to imply that he had suggested that the multiplication of Colleges in the United States was a disadvantage. He would not like to say that. He did not know what public opinion was on the subject, and rather hoped the Chairman would have been able to tell them. He believed that one per cent. of the population in America had received a University training, and that this one per cent. held 40 per cent. of all the leading positions of trust and responsibility. It was probably owing very largely to the multiplication of Colleges that there was such a large percentage of College-trained men holding these positions of trust.
