KING'S COLLEGE PROGRESS.
ONE OF THE FINEST IN THE EAST.
HIS EXCELLENCY'S ADDRESS TO STUDENTS.
QUALITY AIMED AT.
The unequalled opportunities provided for Chinese students at King's College were stressed by His Excellency the Officer Administering the Government (Hon. Mr. W.T.Southorn) when he distributed the prizes this morning in the presence of a large gathering of students and others interested. His Excellency described the College as one of the finest in the East, fitted almost regardless of cost with everything which the heart of the most modern educational enthusiast could desire.
Mr. Southorn also dwelt on the spirit of progress which pervaded the school, of which the Headmaster (Mr. A.Morris) was the living embodiment. He took occasion, however, to point out that the Government would be disappointed if the College did not turn out men who would be of practical use to Hongkong and China generally.
The Troop of Scouts although small, is efficient. Mr. Lam Tsung is the Scoutmaster in charge. Outings are frequent as the Troop has its own special fund for this purpose.
Since its inception, no pecuniary assistance has been received from the Central Headquarters Fund.
