Lampeter Town Council. REFUSE TO APPOINT COLLEGE GOVERNOR. A meeting of the Town Council was held on Thursday evening, May 14, at the Town Hafi. when there were present Councillor Ll. Bankes Price (mayor) in the chair; Aldermen Evan Evans, William Jones, Walter Davies; Councillors D. Davies, D. Idi-is Jones, W. Davies, Evan Davies, J. S. Jones; Mr. E. D. Rees, deputy clerk; Mr. R. AY. Ashman, surveyor and inspector. From the report of the Inspector, the town was in a e:c..an and satisfactory condi- tion and the two reservoirs were full. Several appeals for help from various funds had been received by the Mayor, but could not be entertained at present. Over 2,000 eggs had been sent off during the past few days to the Red Cross Society. It was decided tc continue the water'dis- tress fund for another three months. Attention was again called to the aheged slackness in collecting the licence fees for motors, dogs, guns, etc., and, in answer to a communication sent on the subject to the County Council, it was intimated that the Financc Committee would consider the matter. Alderman Evan Evans proposed and Councillor Idris Jones seconded that a resolution in favour of the Daylight Saving Bih should be sent to the Home Secretary. In answer to a '.eft or received from the Registrar of Aberyst- wyth University College as to I the appointment of a representative of the Council on th,- Board of Governors, it was dee:ded not to appoint one as a protest pxiunst the granting of a pension to a German professor. Councillor David Davies clnirman of the Public Lights and Streets Committee complained of the habit of chi drcn scatter- ing the tar-macadam stones in the Com- mon. and it was decided to roonest the pol ce to endeavour to put a stop to the practice. The owners of the Peterwell Estate were asked to carry out improvements at Green- gate. A congratulatory resolution was accorded to Councilor D. Jones on his return home from Swansea Hospital, and Councilor J. S. Jones was thanked for his kindness in the matter. The sum of E.5 2s. was received from tho JJanlhvni Operatic Society in aid of the loflal Deltrians. iiid nn infc'rnation was given that gifts of potatoes would be vcrv acceptable.

SECONDARY I EDUCATION
SECONDARY I EDUCATION. Problems in Cardiganshire. At ast week's meeting of Cardiganshire Education Committee, a report was pre- sented giving the observations of head- teachers of elementary schools on the I results of the annual, examination for free places and teacher scholarships at the intermediate schools. A summary of the report has been published in the Cambrian News." The Director remarked that he had no doubt that if the Committee wanted to give secondary education to the proper proportion of pupils in elementary schools they ought to increase the maintenance allowances. There were hundreds of boys and girls who otherwise were really too poor to take advantage of secondary education. To meet such cases it would be necessary to increase largely the number of, free places or to make secondary edu- cation free for all children. Mr. J. M. Howell, Aberayron, thought the Committee should aim at securing that every child in the higher standards of elementary schools should sit the entrance examination of the county schools, so as to be able to pick out those boys and girts who would benefit from a course of secondary education. The Director pointed out that the report stated that there was no point in increas- ing tho number of children who entered for the examination unless the number of scholarships was also considerably in- creased, or unless the education at the secondary schools was given tree. Mr. Howell—Do vcu agree with tl at ? I The Director—There is force in it. Mr. C. M. Williams proposed t.iat the report should be referred to the head- masters of the county schools for observa- tions. Many points in the report coidd be controverted. He was none the less delighted with the novel reading which it afforded. Dr. Prys Williams, who has succeeded Mr. Bancroft as inspector of schools and who was wd corned by the Chairman, was asked to speak. He thought as the matter was subjudice he would be ill-advised to make any statement. Mrs. Morgan, Llanddewibrefi, said the difficulty which faced headmasters of county schools was that they could not cha nge the curriculum. The Rev. John WiF'iams, Cardigan, said it was incorrectly stated in the report that commercial subjects, agriculture, and navi- gation, were not taught in secondary school. All those subjects were taught at Cardigan County School. Mr. Lima Jcnes said the statement was quite correct in respect to Aberayron School. There was something seriously nvssing, and the question should be inquired into. Mr. Wilkinson thought the Committee wasted money in many directions, unin- tentionally, and results proved that they were not getting the returns they hoped for. If they canvassed the opin/ons of elementary school teachers there would be a, consensus of opinion that the system of pupt: teachers was unsatisfactory and unprofitable. He knew of cases of boys in school as pupil teachers who had not tho slightest intention of adopting teaching as their profession. It was absolutely necessary to make sure that the Com- mittee received their pound of flesh for every penny spent. Mrs. T. Z. Jones agreed that the rate- payers did not get the hest yalue for their money. If commercial subjects were taught in one school without change of staff, why not in an the schools? In reply to Mr. J. M. Howell, the Director said no reply had been received from tlie W elsh Department of the Board of Education regarding the suggestion that H.M. inspectors should be asked to urge headteachers of elementary schools to I send pupils to sit the scholarship examina- tions. ft was agreed to ask managers -and headteachers cf county schools to submit their observations on the two reports deal- ing- with the question. Mr. Wilkinson gave notice th-it he would propose at the next meeting the appoint- ment of a special committee to consider the whole administration of education in the county,
A Happy Thought
A Happy Thought. ENTERTAINMENT FOR WOUNDED SOLDIERS IN LONDON. At the Welsh Tabernacle, King's Cross, I some 100 wounded soldiers were recently entertained by the lady members of the church. The wounded men were brought to lv:ng s Cross by motor-bus from Roe- hampton and several private motor cars brought others from Hammersmith Hos- pital. Many of the soldiers were natives >1 the Principality, and were delighted to spend the afternoon in the company of London NN-cilli friends. A splendid mlls:cal programme had been arranged from 2 to 4.30. after which the guests were provided with an excellent tea and refreshments of various kinds. The concert was held in the Lecture Hall, and was presided over by Mr. Hugh Pughe Roberts. The Chair- man weVcomed the visitors and sa.:d how delighted the members were of an oppor- tunity of giving their guests a warm Welsh welcome, even in the heart of London. The singing was thoroughly enjoyed by the soldiers. Some of the best-known Lon- don var ety artistes took part, including Mr. J. H. "Wakefield and Mr. Fred Wildon of the Pa la din in, Mr Coram, the r opllar ventriloquist from the Coliseum, and Miss Myers from the Savoy. Solos were sung by Miss Mary Morgan, Miss Gwladys heeler.

The Director was appointed to attend a conference at Llandrindod convened on the joint authority of the University of Wales and the Central Welsh Board to discuss the teaching of Greek. The appointment made by the Managers of a head teacher of Elereh Church School was deferred, temporary arrangements hav ng been made. On a letter from the Registrar of Aber- ystwyth (d lege, it was considered desir- able to hold the summer school during August as usual and the Committee ex- pressed willingness to support the school so tar as instruction was provided in kindergarten, handwork, horticulture, and geography. "Ïth regard to the employment of children in agriculture owing to the short- age of labour, on which subject a resolution was received from Cardiganshire Farmers' rllion it was agreed to forward in reply a copy of the circular issued by the Board of Education and to inform the Union that it was the Committee's intention to art as tar as possible in accordance with the suggestions and principles contained in the c:rcu.ar.

The IJity Council Office was closed and tho l-nron Jack was flown from the Town Hai l in commemoration of the Patron Saint of ales. At Blaekstone the occasion was celebrated by a national concert. Black- stone is perhaps the largest Welsh settle- ment in Queensland. The celebrations were arranged by a committee of which Mr H. H. Lewis is president; Mr b Williams secretary; Mr. E. Roberts, treasurer, and Mesdames J. B. Cribb, jun., E. M. Jones, T. G.Bowen. J. L. Edwards, and L J. Ivlniunds, Messrs. J. W". Jones, B M. Davies (secretary of St. David's Society), AY. B.

Welsh national emblems figured I prominently in the decorations. Major Ava. kins, Manly, in the course of an address said it was very pleasant to hear the Welsh tongue all around them which brought happy memories of their beloved "and. Welsh people wherever they settled planted and maintained national* institu- tions and could claim that in Queensland the eisteddfod had given a great nhilip to music. What was it that made the Welsh people so full of religion, art, and music? It was because their home was « JLnnd of mountains and mountains acted on the imagination.

IMPORTANCE OF 1 THRIFT
IMPORTANCE OF 1 THRIFT. Suggestions to School Teachers. Col. Davies-Evans, the lord iieutenant, attended last week's meeting of Cardigan- shire Eddcation Committee in order to consider the steps to lie taken for the pur- pose of impressing the necessity of thrift I during the crisis on all classes of people in tlie county. The object was to bring home to the inhabitants the necessity of economising and the advisability of invest- .mg their savings in war loans. He did not think it coll,d be said that the people of Cardiganshire wore wilfully extrava- gant. They all lived as economically as they possibly cou'd. Probably not much was required to be done in that direction; but whether food production could be increased was a question worthy of con- sideration. To invest in war loans was paL pably much needed and was to the advantage of everybody. That could be brought home to the public by the issue of literature and by holding meetings. To start a new organisation in a scattered county iiie would mean delay and great d.tticulty; but something could be done through the general educa- tional organisation of thy county. Tlie Chairman (Mr. D. C. Roberts) said the Committee felt obliged to CoJ. Dav-es. I- Evans for bringing the matter forward. He -agreed that by ut/hsing an existing organisation it might be possible to do more effective work than by starting a new organisation. The strongest and most valuable appeal could be made by the teaching of thrift to children and he sug- gested th'at the Director should be asked to appeal to teachers to assist in bringing the matter home to children. It might be possible to start in each schod. a sav. ngs bank in which money could be invested for the war loans. Mr. Wi-kiiison, WTenallt, said he had endeavoured to persuade people to invest their savings. The difficulty, however, was that they were accustomed to deposit savings in the bank and were sure of their 2J, per cent., while there were difficulties which they did not understand in connee. ion with exchequer bonds and other investments in Government stock. Jr. Lima Jones and Mr. J. M. Howell, Aberayron, also pointed out difficulties; but the Chairman said what concerned the Committee was to eurghten the small people. Wetflthy people were well able to look alter themselves. "'hat was wanted was to get the general public to invest j their shillings and pounds which would not only be an advantage to them but ii-otr"d also be a patriotic action. Mr. Wilkinson said if literature was to be distributed it should be in AAVIsh. Mr. C. M. WitHams- Must Welsh peof/10 are as keen as -anybody about investing. Mr. John Rees, Pontrhydfendigaid, thought teachers would do all they could to assist in supnorting that desirable scheme. Mr. John Evans, mayor of Aberystwyth, said if an appeal was al:50 made in churches and chapels it would be beneficial. It was eventually agreed to request school teachers and distinct committees to take the matter in hand and to authorise the Director to supply the necessary litera- tnre with a summary of the post office regulations.
MYSTERIOUS LETTER. ABERYSTWYTH SCHOOL GOYERNOES ( DISCUSSION. At the meeting of the governing body of Aberystwyth Intermediate School on Tues- day afternoon, the Rev. u. J. Rees pre- siding, the notice of motion given by Mr. C. M. Williams, ex-chairman, that the necessary steps be taken to terminate the engagement of Dr. D. J. Davies, one of I the teachers, at the end of the session, was again discussed. On the proposition of Mr. William*, seconded by Mrs. Richards Penuwchfawr, it was decided by five votes to four to dis- cuss the matter in committee. Professor Morgan Lewis said that since his name was mentioned at the previous meeting and reference was made to a letter which he sent to Mr. C. M. AYilliams, he thought lie ought to have an opportunity of explaining what that innocent letter really was. It seemed to have caused a good deal of talk as if a great mystery was made of it. Mr. C. M. AYill iams said the last Para- graph was the only part of the letter which I induced him to adjourn bis proposal at the previous meeting. In that part Pro- fessor Lewis wrote "1 am writing to you privately and to no one else-tlioligli at first 1 thought of writing a letter to the Clerk to be read at the meeting. If you think you must proceed. 1 hope nothing p 11 final will be done next week. If you can see your way to withdraw or postpone the motion. I shall be very glad. If you to st:)to that 1 have written, you are at liberty to do so." Professor Lewis—I saw in the reports I that Mr. A\ illiams stated that there were mis-statements in the vtetter. Therefore I think the first part of the letter ought ¡ also to be read. Mr. Williams said there were statements I which he (Ld not think :t right to discuss in public. They were Professor Lewis's views and he coula repeat them in com- mittee. What he (Mr. W illiams) said at the previous meeting was that there were erroneous statements with regard to his proposal. If Professor Lewis was anxious to injure the School, he (Mr Williams) had no objection to read the letter. Professor Lewis said he was in a curious position. Mr. A\ illiams suggested that lie was injuring the school by asking for the letter to be read. As a matter of fact, the reason was that the arguments were so strong that Mr. AA illiams did not like them to be reproduced. He might be wrong and Mr. AA'illiams right; but all he wanted to make clear was that there was nothing in the letter. Mr. Williams said the onii- part of the letter which induced hrm to adjourn the proposal was Professor Lewis's request. It was unfair to give publicity to one side ol the argument without giving publicity to the other side. In the interests of tho school it was not advantageous to do so. Captain Douglitozi-If the letter is read it will remove all suspicion. Professor Lewis proposed and Mr. Richards, Gwarfelin. seconded that the letter should be read. That was carried by five votes to three. Mr. C- M. Williams In any case 1 shall decline to read the letter. It is a letter addressed to me privately. The Chairman-This mysterious docu- ment is a matter between you two. It was stated publicly here as the reason for di*'forr:ng the discussion. Professor -Since I marked the ll--V' Private" of course it rests with Mr W illiams. The -.ts the letter is not to J'e read. I take it nothing germane to it be discussed in committee. The Governors then resolved into com- mittee, when four voted for tei,niinit.:ii-(y the engagement of Dr Davies and five voted against. The proposition was there tore lost.
