"'The Committee will meet again
tomorrow morning."
"About 80 attended a reception at
Church House on Wednesday after-
noon April 15th given by Mr. C. De
Groot, Colonial Office Liaison Officer
for West Indian Students, for dele-
gates to the Federation Conference,
West Indian Students and West In-
dian Government Officers on study
leave. Among those present were
Mr. S. E. V. Luke (Assistant under

Comptroller Development and Wel.
fare West Indies. Mr. J. L Keith,
Director of Colonial scholars, Mr. W,
I. J. Wallace and Mr. N. L. Mayle,
heads of the West Indian Depart-
ment.
Mr. J. L. Keith who welcomed the
guests said it was always a pleasure
to meet students from the West In-
dies and to help them although from


his own experience he had found they
were very capable of looking after
themselves. They had even solved
the problem of Federation by form-
ing their own Students Union. It
was hoped soon to Corm a West In-
dian Students Centre and to negotiate
for a suitable bu: ding. The cost
would be between 20,000 and 30,-
000 and the annual upkeep about
3,000 It wasa good thing that the
students should hav y a centre where
they can introduce culture of their
own and entertain friends.
Mr. Gomes said they followed
keenly the activities of the students
and felt sure every ie would favour
the establishment ol a Students Cen-
tre."
