increasing, and prospective candidates are- well
advised to forward their applications to the Senior

The Colonial Office has again stressed the im-
portance of colonial candidates seeking admission
to training hospitals through Government sponsor-
ship. Candidates who proceed to the United
Kingdom on their own without previously obtain-
ing such sponsorship will have to take their chances
of possible selection along with those of other can-
didates. Training hospitals will be free to accept
