Excerpt from Royal Colonial Institute Year Book, 1916
IN presenting to the Fellows Of the Institute the fifth issue Of the Year Book, the hope is expressed that it may assist in disseminating a better knowledge of the aims and objects Of the Institute and the work which is being done in promoting the closer and permanent unity of the Empire. Owing to the largely increased cost Of paper and printing it has been decided by the Council, temporarily, to curtail the volume in various ways, viz., by omitting the illustrations, the geographical list of Fellows, the statistical information regarding all parts of the Empire, and also the classified list of the newspapers and magazines which are to be seen in the Institute Building. By this means a considerable economy will be efiected. The membership has increased beyond expectation during the past year, and is growing steadily as we go to press. Particulars are given Of the numerous activities Of the Institute as well as Of the competition for the Gold Medal, and Of the Prizes for Essays which, in normal times, are offered by the Council to the Universities and Secondary Schools. For the current year, as was the case in 1915, the Council has decided to suspend all these competitions except the last-named.
