It is announced that, at the invitation of the University of Oxford, the next Congress of the Universities of the Empire will be held in Oxford during July 19–23, 1948. The Universities Bureau of the British Empire is requesting each of its member institutions to appoint four delegates, and although present conditions have necessitated this limitation of numbers, it is expected that about three hundred senior teaching and administrative officers will attend as representatives of universities and other institutions of higher learning, both home and overseas. The subjects for discussion at the various sessions will be announced later.
