Speaking at a meeting of the Leeds Educational Council held the same day Mr. W.E. Forster, M.P., said that one of their chief wants seemed to be more scholarships from the primary to the secondary schools, then something approaching a University, and also an institution that would enable boys and girls, obliged to give up day learning to improve themselves in the evening. They also wanted to assist boys and girls by special faculties in getting up the ladder, and that pointed to scholarships, a comparatively small number of which would supply the want.
