Size and shapelessness

As the last College Meeting drew to its weary close, the Warden was moved to address the empty pews on the wickedness of not making attendance at meetings of the Governing Body a first call on one's time. Of course, it was waste of words to address them to absent auditors, but the sentiment was apposite. But it is inevitable with a Governing Body of fifty that each fellow feels on average only a 2% say in, and responsibility for, the affairs of the College. Large bodies are ineffective, and as the Fellowship has grown, papers have proliferated, committees have encroached on every available hour, and college life has degenerated into administration.
