GALLANT THIRD MONS
GALLANT THIRD 'MONS. SUGGESTED REST AT HOME. At a meeting of the Tredegar District Council on Tuesday evening, the Chairman (Mr. S. Filer) threw out a suggestion that, seeing the 3td Monmouthshires had been engaged in such severe fighting since they had been at the front, a petition be sent to the Monmouthshire Terri- torial Association, that the regiment be allowed to come back for a rest. He understood that some Territorial regiments had already been granted that privilege. They would all be delighted to welcome their boys from the front, where they had done such grand work, and they certainly deserved a rest. Mr. W. Bosley agreed with the suggestion, and said that the Monmouthshire Regiment was quite worthy of being granted this privilege. Mr. W. North said they had no desire to dictate to the military authorities, but he did not know that there was any objection to the remnant of the battalion being given- a short rest, so that they could make up their strength at home. They were all proud of the boys of the 3rd Mons., who had done so magnificently. Mr. D. Morgan also agreed with the suggestion, and a motion.to that effect was passed. It was decided to request the other councils in the area to pass similar resolutions.
NEW TREDEGAR HEAD TEACHER ASSAULTED
NEW TREDEGAR HEAD TEACHER ASSAULTED. SEQUEL IN THE POLICE COURT. At Tredegar Police Court on Tuesday, betore Mr. T. J. Price, C.C., Alderman H. Bowen, Mr. T. M. Williams and Mr. Sam Filer, Janet Jones (35), Phillipstown, New Tredegar, was summoned at the instance of the National Union of Teachers for assaulting Owen J ones, headmaster of Phillipstown Council School, on May 5th. Mr. R. H. Spencer, Tredegar, was for the prosecution and Mr. T. J. Thomas, Bargoed, defended. Complainant said that on May 4th he punished defendant's boy for throwing a stone in the street and striking a girl. The following day defendant came up to the school in a very excitable con- dition and questioned his authority to inflict punishment for an offence committed out of school hours. The stone was thrown as the boy was going home at mid-day, and the girl struck was a pupil of the school. He ordered the woman out, and in going she pushed him. The assault itself was not a serious matter, but the discipline of the school was undermined by parents inter- fering and questioning the authority of the head- master. The County Education Authority had issued a circular relative to stone-throwing and pointing out that from 15 to 20 children in the county were suffering from damage to their eyes in consequence of being struck by stones, and head teachers were instructed to punish offenders. That head teachers, he said, had authority to punish offenders for offences committed in going to and from school and out of school hours had been upheld by the courts. The district was a new one, and the staff were considerably annoyed and worried by parents interfering with the discipline of the school. In reply to Mr. Thomas, complainant denied that he pushed Mrs. Jones off the premises. Evidence was called on both sides, Mrs. Jones alleging that she was first pushed by. complainant, and she simply retaliated, as she had a baby in her arms at the time. Mrs. Jones was censured by the Chairman (Mr. T. J. Price), and ordered to pay the coUrt fees, 4s.
ALLOTMENTS WANTED AT PONTLOTTYN
ALLOTMENTS WANTED AT PONTLOTTYN. At a meeting of the Gelligaer Urban Council, held at Hengoed on Tuesday, Canon Jones, J.P., in the chair, a petition from Pontlottyn, signed by twenty-two residents there, was read by the Clerk, in which the applicants asked the Council to obtain land suitable for allotments, as there was nothing of the kind at Pontlottyn. Mr. M. J ones moved that the Clerk com- municate with the landowners for terms, and said there was a similar movement on foot in the Gilfach and Bargoed wards, and he thought it would be well to write all the landowners in the parish to submit terms.-—Chairman There is a demand in Gelligaer for allotments too.- Mr. S. Carter: There will be a petition from Gilfach Fargoed.—Mr. S. Jones: And there were a number of people in Ystrad Mynach wanting land and the Mackintosh Estate considered the matter favourably, but the Wingfield Estate informed us that we could have as much land as we wanted for £200 an acre, and now that the Government are urging the cultivation of land I think we could ask the landowners to abate their demands.—Mr. Charles: There is the same demand in Trelewis.—Chairman: If landlotdk saw themselves as others see them they would find that they are committing suicide as land* lords by obstructing the natural and justifiable aspirations of the people to cultivate land, and so I ask for an extension of the motion so that it may include all the landowners in the area- Mr. D. Hopkins I move the application be made for Pontlottyn,—Mr. S. Jones: The Wingfield Estate's price is as if the land were for building purposes, but as building land it will not be required for a very long time.—It was finally decided to write to all landowners in the parish for terms, and for the matter to go to the Housing Committee.
