THE sixth Congress of Universities of the Commonwealth will be held at Oxford during July 19–23. Some three hundred delegates are expected to attend, and observers have been appointed by Unesco, the United States and various learned institutions. Among the topics to be discussed are : relations of the State and the universities ; inter-university relations; a critical review, from the points of view of a historian, a philosopher and a sociologist, of the structural and moral changes produced in modern society by scientific and technological advance; the balance of research and teaching in universities ; general plan for colonial higher education ; extension of the university secondment scheme. The Congress is being preceded by a private conference, held at Bristol during the past week, of executive heads of universities.
