LISMORE, Sunday.

The Minister for Education, Mr. Drummond, said that the New England University College at Armidale provided the opportunity for the development of a cultural centre in northern New South Wales. He hoped that the college, which would be opened by the Governor, would get support in the shape of enrolments from the North Coast. He said that it would be the first provincial university college in Australia, and he hoped that North Coast people would consider the establishment of a bursary for North Coast students.
