"This is the first time a TaPl college has gone out

of its way to help other people's students, the college

and let us know where they are and what they are studying.

heed of study facilities and. mutual contact would be

catered, for by Bruce · ollege of TAP'S.

H r Ibbotson has advertised his four-fold offer: use of

Bruce ..-ollege library (on proof of enrolment) ; a contact

network c mailed by Bruce staff of names, actresses and

courses studied so that sfcucents can discover each other

living close to each other and. study inf the same course.

Bruce College would circulate names and addresses so they

can meet for mutual study b e n e f i t .

with someone else doing the same subject. If students will

, contact us we will circulate a list of names and acldresses

,:If there ere places available in c l a s s e s , and, if our

teachrrs are satisfied that accepting other students will

not affect the class, v;e will gladly allow students to

attend classes for their own b e n e f i t , Mr 1 ibotson said.
