Among this year's graduates who are to receive their degrees and diplomas at the hands of the Vice-Chancellor of the University will be Mr Ernest Chitty, B.A. MrChitty has been in residence at the Jubilee Institute for the Blind since 1892. He made such satisfactory progress in the school department that an opportunity was given him to pursue the higher branches of education at Prince Albert College. He. took full advantage of this, and in 1901 passed the matriculation examination. He spent another year at Prince Albert College, and then entered upon a three years' course at the University College with the B.A. degree, in view. He took up four subjects for the first section (Latin, French, English and pure mathematics) and passed successfully in 1904. For the final section he took jurisprudence and constitutional history and general history and political economy in November last, and early this year had the satisfaction of receiving intimation that lie had passed. Recognising his ability and application, and duly appreciating his claims to still further encouragement, the trustees of the institute have made arrangements for Mr Chitty to read for the M.A. degree, and everyone i will wish him success in his efforts. His attainments of graduate rank reflects the highest credit both on himself and upon the Blind Institute—upon himself for the pluck and perseverance which have enabled him to press forward and overcome obstacles in spite of his great handicap, upon the institute for the liberal and sympathetic manner in which his efforts have been fostered and furthered, the staff of Prince Albert College, his readers, and the University College professors. This latest recognition of Mr Chitty's success will serve to bring before the general public the whole work which is being carried on in our midst by the Jubilee Institute for the I Blind.
