GEELONG ART SOCIETY.

During the past three months the members of this society have held their usual meetings for criticism of work and general business.

Early in the quarter the hon. secretary brought forward a proposal to produce a series of living pictures combined with a concert at some period later on. This was agreed to, and it was further decided to ask the photographic association to join in the undertaking. The latter society readily consented, and a joint committee was appointed to carry out all arrangements. The members have since then been busy preparing coloured copies of the pictures proposed to be reproduced, and have submitted to their meetings some very creditable colour compositions, besides this members have been steadily working from nature and show a general improvement in handling, and a ready sympathy with the subjects chosen for delineation, which will be seen to advantage at the annual exhibition of the society to be held early in the next year.

NOTES.

The Wombat is now the official paper of the Gordon Technical College, and of all the Societies connected therewith.

As several of our correspondents have informed us that some of the numbers of our last volume did not reach them, we have to specially request that all irregularities in delivery be notified to the Editor.

.

The term which ended on 19th September, shows a decided improvement upon the preceding ones for the year, and for the corresponding period of last year. The numbers enrolled in the various classes for the time just ended are:– Theoretical Chemistry, 6; Practical Chemistry, 6; Veterinary Science, 6; Mathematics, 12; Carpentry, 28; Plumbing, 12; Woolsorting, 13; Manual Training, (Carpentry for boys), 24; Freehand and Model Drawing, 20; Mechanical Drawing, 14; Building Construction and Architectural Drawing, 5; Painting, 7; Shorthand, 16; Book-keeping, 8; Writing and Correspondence, 6; German, 3; Total, 186.

Encouraged by their success at the Ballarat Industrial Exhibition, several of our students in the trade classes have sent exhibits to the Albury Exhibition recently opened. The result of the jurors' awards will be watched with much interest as it is expected that the competition will be keen, several exhibits being entered from other technical schools.

The rainfall at the College for the month of October has been 71, number of days on which rain fell 5, rainfall for ten months of this year 2576, days on which rain fell for same period 97. It is hoped that the meteorological instruments belonging to the College will be placed in position before the end of the year, and the registrations commenced at the beginning of 1897.
