Plans to open a British University in Jerusalem have been formulated, according to an announcement published by the “Daily Mail.”

The first step in this direction will be taken soon, according to the “Daily Mail,” by transferring the present English College in Palestine to the buildings situated on the Mount of Olives. Other buildings are to be erected on the Mount of Olives for the housing of the university. Fifty thousand pounds are to be expended on this project, according to the estimate.

The English College in Jerusalem is conducted by the Jerusalem and the East Mission, which is also known as the Anglican Bishop’s Mission. The Mission has for its purpose the presentation of the Christian faith to non-Christians by means of educating the young and caring for the sick.

The Jewish Home for Convalescents of Grand View on the Hudson gave a charity ball at the Hotel Pennsylvania last night, the proceeds to be devoted to the work of the institution the coming year.
