Both of the women's colleges, Girton and Newnham, are doing peacetime factory work in college and it is hoped to arrange an output competition between them in the near future.
For some time past men and women at Swansea have been running a girls' and boys' club respectively. Now as a result of an appeal from the Swansea Education Department, the students are starting a mixed youth club.
