Carmarthen Borongb Education Committee
Carmarthen Borongb Education Committee. The monthly meeting of the Carmarthen Borough Education Committee was held at the Guildhall on Tuesday, the Rev D. J. Thomas presiding. "WEAR AND TEAR." A letter was read from the Rev Griffith Thomas, in reply to a communication which had been sent drawing the attention of the managers to the state of the Model School ptayground. Mr Thomas said that the mana- gers had 13 years ago handed over the school for the purpose of secular education to the Committee. The playground was then in good condition, and its present condition was due to the "wear and tear" of the schools. The Clerk said that the WoOOir and tear clause did not refer to the playground. The Educa- tion Department had stated that half a dozen times. It was decided to inform the Rev Griffith Thomas that the managers and not the Com- mittee were responsible for repairs to the playground. "THROWING YOURSELF UNDER A HARROW." A letter was read from Mr Jenkins, a Boro teacher, who desired to be awarded a (short course scholarship in physical training at a Summer School. It appeared that the Boro Authority had no power in the matter, and that the County Education Committee would not meet until after the-couree was finished. The Clerk stated that the applicant might go at his own expense now and afterwards throw- himself oh tlie mercy of the County Authority to refund the money. Mr Holmes: That is like throwing yourself under a harrow. It was decided to endeavour to have the matter brought before the County Council the following day. The County Council on Wednesday granted the application. SCARCITY OF TEACHERS. There were several vacancies for teachers. In many cases there were no applicants, and in the one case in which there were applica- ti-ons the appointment was adjourned. The Chairman said that, they might ask the head teachers if they could do with a decreased staff at the present time.

Joint Counties Mental Hospital
Joint Counties Mental Hospital. SUCCESSFUL REPRESENT ATI ONS TO HOME OFFICE. On Wednesday the 21st inst. a deputation appointed by the Committee of Visitors of the j Joint Counties Mental Hospital and consist- ing of Alderman W. N. Jones, J.P. (chair- man), the Rev Henry Evans, and Mr W. J. Wallis-Jones (Clerk to the Visitors) waited upon the Commissioners of the Board of Con- trol and Mr Maxwell., representing the Home Office, when the deputation was also accom- panied by Mr John Hinds, M.P. and Mr J. Towyn Jones, M.P. The deputation urged the special circumstancces which, in their j opinion justified the completing of the laun. dry contract, part of which had already been executed and for which purpose they -had a sum of about £ 5,500 in hand, so that less than £ 1,000 would have to be called up from the counties in order to complete the contract, which the Local1 Government Board had inti- mated should not proceed further on account of the restrictions recently placed upon the expenditure of capital and the employment of labour. Through the instrumentality of Mr John Hinds, M.P., an appointment was also arran- ged with the Home Office on Thursday morn- ing when the deputation, accompanied by the Members of Parliament already mentioned, and Mr W. F. Roch, M.P., waTted upon the Under Secretary of State for the Home De- partment (Mr Brace), when they were in- I formed by the Home Secretary, in view of the -speciat circumstances detailed by the deputa- tion, felt justified in recommending that the Committee should be authorised to spend the necessary money in completing the laundry, and that the Home Office would communicate with the Local Government Board and also, if with the Local, Government Board and aJ60, if necessary, the Treasury with a view to obtain- ing the formal sanctions that were required.. In view of this intimation it is now contem- plated that the new laundry block will be completed towards the end of the year and that it can then be made available tor the temporary accommodation of patients until the end of the war when it is hoped, machinery can be fitted up and the alterations to Waun- iago carried out.
FRENCH AND GERMAN METHODS A CONTRAST
FRENCH AND GERMAN METHODS: A CONTRAST. A vivid account of ambulance work behind the French lines is given in the August "Windsor Magazine" by Harold Williams, one of the first Englishmen to offer their ser- vices for driving motor cars on behalf of the French authorities for the transmission of wounded men. In the course of his article, Mr Williams says:— "The towns occupied by the French in Alsace have been wonderfully little damaged, and in this respect offer a striking contrast to the towns of France whiichhave suffered from German oocupation. The Germans have in- variably left a trail behind them, not only of streets and villages destroyed by shell fire, but often gutted out of mere wantoness. In Alsace the French came as saviours and bene- factors, and' it was therefore natural they should try to inflict as little damage as possi- ble in pushing the Boches before them. Never- theless, it is difficult to use cannon over a Jiong line against hostile forces without caus- in injury to other than enemy lines and batteries, and' the almost imperceptible ex- tent of the damage caused by the French ad- vance is remarkable. The only standing ob- jects which they had wilfully cast down, so far as I could see, were the boundary stones marking the frontier between France and Ger- many. These they had thrown into the ditch to show that Alsace was once more an integral part of France. "The orderly and quiet behaviour of thy French troops was noticeable in a country which was to them, in some sense, a foreign and conquered land. I remember a French soldier who had been in Colmar during the early French advance saying to me: fwiien we saw what things the Boches did, in France, we swore that, when we got into Germany, we would do the same. But I knew quite well we couldn't.' A inota,bly important programme of finely illustrated articles on themes from the war, and other contributions by distinguished authors, is provided in the complete summer number of the "Windsor Magazine" for August. The momentous question of muni- tions, and a lavishly illustrated article on Mesopotamia and the War, are among the more notable articles, and there is a true ring of sentiment in a paper on "Home Ties in the Trenches," which surveys both the splendid loyalty of our fighting men to the best tradi- tions of our British life and the constant inte- rt taken in their welfare by non-combatants at home. Some of the true stories told in the course of this article will not soon pass from the memory. The fiction of the number includes a re- markable complete story of Rhodesian life by Gertrude Page, and other contributions, all complete in the number, are by authors of such distinguished attainments as H. de Vere Stacpoole. Eden Phillpotts, Vincent Brown, Theodore Goodridge Roberts, F. E. Baily, G. B. Lancaster, Fred M. White, and others al- most equally well known. These many fea- tures are lavishly illustrated by leading artists.
KIDWELLY NOTES. In our report of the "send off" given to the | Kidwelly "boys" off to the front, it was stated that a sum of L7 109 was realised at the fare- well concert got up in their honour. A slight correction is needed. Of this sum. 16s 8d was obtained through the efforts of Mr Emlyn Williams, Water street, who immediately set about collecting funds when he heard of the home-coming of the brave fellows. As soon, however, as he heard the Mayor was moving in the matter, he handed over the sum col- lected to the latter's fund. Emlyn's interest in the matter is explained when it is stated that he was one of the original recruits from Kidwelly and spent some months in training on Salisbury Plain, but had to leave the Army on medical grounds. Next week a grand concert will be given at the Town Hall by Professor W. J. Bowen and pupils in aid of the National School Repairs Fund. We hope the public will give their generous support.
KIDWKLLY VTU CORP
KIDWKLLY V.T.U. CORP. A puiblic meeting was held in the Town Hall on Tuesday evening t,he 20tli inst. with the object of forming a local detachment of the Volunteer Training Corps. The Mayor, Ald. T. Reynolds, took the chair, and was suppoilei, by well known local gentlemen. The Mayor in introducilllg the principal speaker—Mr H. S. Holmes,, Training College —who had very kindly come over from Car- marthen, said he was in full sympathy with the movement and hoped a strong detachment would be formed. He felt sure that Kidwetly men would show the same patriotism in join- ing the Volunteer Training Corps as the younger men had done in joining Kitchener's Army. He had much pleasure in calling upon Mr Holmes, who would explain the movement and answer any questions that might be put to him. Mr Holmes upon rising had a hearty recep. tion and in a clear and comprehensive speech explained the- movement in detail, explaining too obligations involved in membership. All misconceptions in respect of two or three clauses in the rules for membership were re- moved by the lucid manner in which the speaker explained them. The speaker also appealed to the audience to join a movement which was inaugurated to prepare a body of men who would be of great service in case of invasion or raid by our enemies (applause). At the conclusion of his speech, Mr Holmes was asked several questions which he answered to the satisfaction of the questioners. The Chairman then called upon several gen- tlemen to speak. Mr John Thomas, Velindre, said he would put his name down first as a member (applause Mr H. E. Smart said he would do what he could to malke the detachment a success (hear, hear). Ald. D. G. Anthony thought it the duty of every citizen to be prepared for eventualitites (hear, hear). Mr A. Stephens, J.P., Broomhill, who was unable to attend the meeting in time to hear the speaker, was prepared to give the move- ment his support, and very kindly offered a field in which to drill, a large shed to be used in wet weather, and also an indoor rifle range, which has already been fixedu,p (loud applause Mr G. E. Bowen, J,P, followed, and said he had been considerably enlightened upon the movement after hearing Mr Holmes speak. (Mr Sheppard and Mr D. Thomas followed. As Mr Holmes had to leave tooatch a train, a hearty vote ofthanks. was accorded to him for his kindness in coming to Kidwelly to ex- plain the movement. In responding Mr Holmes said the only thanks he wanted was to see a detachment formed, and 'at some .future date he hoped to visit them again, when he would put the de- tachment through their drill. A strong committee was formed, and Mr I>. Thomas, schoolmaster, was appointed secre- tary, and Mr F. Sheppard instructor. The Secretary immediately proceeded to take the names of those who were desirous of becoming members. Each of the speakers above gave his name, including the Mayor, who is very keen on the movement, and alto- gether some thirty handed in their names. Since the meeting above referred to several others have given in their names, and it is hoped that at least a hundred will join. Those who have already joined lost no time in getting to work, and on Wednesday and Thursday evenings parades took place for the purposes of drill. It is to be hoped that all the men in Kid- wely will join in the movement and so prepare themselves for service, if and wilien the enemy intruder should- arrive. We are asked to state that any pers)on desirous of further in- formation respecting the V.T.C. can have full particulars from the Secretary, the Instructor or any member. Now then men of Kidwelly show your patriotism.

Corre&pondepce. NATIONAL REGISTRATION IN CARMAR- THENSHIRE. To the Editor Carmarthen Weekly Reporter. Dear Sir,—Mr Walter Long, the President of the Local Government Board, desires me to call public attention to the importance of obtaining voluntary assistance in the work of preparing the Register, which under the National Registration Act, will be undertaken in the middle of August. The Act contemplates that a Register will be formed in each Borough and Urban Dis. trict under the direction of the local authority for the area. I desire therefore to appeal to all persona in the county 'likely to have spare time during the month of Auugst to offer their services to the loca-I authority of their district, namely, the Town Council, or the Urban or Rural Dis- trict Council, for work in connection with the Register, such as distribution and collection of registration forms, tabulation of forms, or any other work, clerical or otherwise, that may be necessary. All volunteers should there,fore apply with- out delay to the Town Clerk or the Clerk of the Urban or Rural District Council of the district in which they reside. Your obedient servant, J. W.
