o MYSTERY OF THE BERWYNS
o MYSTERY OF THE BERWYNS. STILL NO TRACE OF GLYN CEIRIOG SCHOOL GIRL. THEORIES AS TO HER FATE. During the paet, few days our correspond ept has again been making enquiries in the Glyn Valley and neighbourhood! with a view to obtaining facts to help in the elucidation of the mystery In which the dis- appearance off Ccridwen Price, a school girl, twelve years of age, still remains shrouded. It was on March 21 that the little girt left her home. at Gart;h Obry, a cottage fitua-ted between the viMiage of ttlyn Celriog e:64 Chink, where the resided with let parents, respectable working people, and two other children, undeT circumstances already reported. OUT oorreEipdndient conversed with several partlee who, residing on the spot, have taken fbe, keenest interest in the search, but they lhave little in the way of practical suggestions to make, whilst all agree as to the remarkableness of the fact that, in thare days of rapid communication and official activity, it shouldi be possible for a. child to dis- appear in such a manner andi remain undiscovered for so long & period. One theory advanced! is that the ehfld may acct. "dentally, in the Winding snowstorm that must have speedily enveloped; her after she. had left home, have lost her footing and rolled down the steep bank, in- to the Ceriog stream. Of course, the raver has been carpfnlly and frequently gola-Tched, and dragged; but, as one who knows it well states, there are "whirl- pools in the Ceirlog"-tb,at is the quaiint way In which he describes a deep pool, overhung by shelv- ing Tocks that have never yet been fathomed. Still another theory centres round the Oeiriog lime kilns tbat atmt on the sMe of the roadway, and which the eb-ild must have passed daily on her way to and from school. It is thought that she may have sought shelter in these Kins with tragic results. j

IThe Ethics cf Compulsion
I The Ethics cf Compulsion. We publish to-day, in addition to the recent Royal Proclamation, a more direct and personal appeal from Lord Kenyon, addressed through our columns, to the public of the Welsh border on the urgent necessity of con- centrating on the saving of bread and the checking of waste. We have already printed other similar pleas from authoritative sources, and though they, no doubt, have nad material influence on many of our readers, there is, we believe, still a large section of the public for whom some form of legal compulsion is necessary to secure the desired effect. Reluctance to impose such a measure is easy to understand. It is admittedly a cumbrous and expensive system, and the experience of Germany goes to show that it does not necessarily result in equality of treatment, and even in the assurance of sufficient supplies to go all round. It is bound to involve the creation of a horde of new officials, central and local, at a time when the growth of the power of bureaucracy is causing the utmost alarm in the minds of many thoughtful students of sociology, and it will set up in our midst what will hardly be disguisable from a system of espionage, not only in the public eating house, but tho private dining room and kitchen. Then why should it be necessary ? The answer to that question, we think, is worth more than a superficial consideration, and is not to be adequately supplied by the merely obvious conclusion that it is 4ue to the failure of a large proportion of the public to respond to appeals for voluntary rationing, however infiuencial and effectively phrased. It brings us at once to the further question why have those appeals, to a large extent, failed ? It is not, we believe, entirely due to pure selfishness, though want of thought which amounts to something even more reprehensible than pure selfishness at such a time as this, is probably partly responsible. But, in an even larger degree, we venture to suggest, it arises out of that strange habit of mind which has more than once during the war found expression in the paradoxical phrase we prefer to be compelled. We met with it during the later stages of the Derby enlist- ment scheme, when many potential recruits declared, without any desire to shirk their share of military service eventually, that they were "waiting to be fetched." When they were fetched they went quite willingly, and have in most cases since made excellent and well-disciplined soldiers. We have witnessed the same mental phenomena more recently, in connection with the National Service campaign, amongst those who, while failing to enrol on their own initiative, would gladly welcome "some form of compulsion." It is not that they are fundamentally unwilling to serve the Stace. It is simply that they need the incen- tive of a superior force to impel them to an issue. Philosophers may tell us that it is an extraordinary state of mind in a nation which has hitherto prided itself on its love of personal liberty; but the wisest philosophy is that which takes things as they are and not as they might be in a wholly logical world. For the fact is that we are seldom logical. However sincerely we cherish the ideals of freedom of thought and freedom of action, in practice we cling no less resolutely to a form of national government which largely circumscribes them both. The very idea of "government," indeed, pre-supposes restraint or constraint; and, so far from resenting the enforcement of the authority of the State uprn public conduct provided, of course, that such authority rests, as it must necessarily do if it has to have moral weight, on a basis of equity and necessity-we believe that the considerable failure of the large section of the community to respond to appeals for voluntary rationing is due to their need for some more direct and disciplinary rule of conduct than pure volition provides. At any rate, it seems to ns to furnish a far more satisfactory explanation of such failure than any other. We should, for instance, be extremely sorry to think any citizens, in spite of the knowledge that some more drastic economy in food consumption is imperatively necessary, had flagrantly refused to do their duty in this direction. The nation certainly might have been given fuller knowledge by the Government of the critical situation with which it has for some time been faced in consequence of It he serious shortage of wheat supplies, and, had this been done, no doubt there would have been a rather more general as well as an earlier response to the Ifood Controller's appeals. But we still doubt whether the peculiar psychology to which we have alluded would have been materially affected by this means alone, since those who "wait to be fetched" or who wait to be forced seldom move until actual compulsion comes. Hence, while the King's Proclamation most earnestly exhorting and charging all those of our loving subjects, the men and women of our realm who have the means to I procure articles of food other than 'n especially to practice the greatest economy and. frugality in the use of every species of grain M must, in any event, prove an arresting docu- ment, those who study official precedents will not have failed to note the significant fact that royal messages of a corresponding character heralded both conscription and the Government control of the liquor trader Voluntary rationing may, therefore, be said to have thus been given its final chance, and though its universal adoption would be of great service to the nation and save us from many administrative difficulties, it is not astonishing that the Government are busy preparing the machinery for imposing a compulsory system of bread tickets.
PERSONAL. ¡ Earl Brownlow has arrived in London from Scotland. Lord Kenyon succeeded Viscount Valentia. as lord-in-waiting to the King at Windsor Castle on Wednesday. The wife of Major David Davies gave birth to a daughter at 9, Mandeville-place, London, on Thursday. Onslow being closed till the end of the war Mrs. Wingfield has moved into Shrewsbury. Her address for the future will be, Mrs. Wingfield, Senr., 3, Claremont Buildings. The Rev. C. A. Alington, head master of Eton, and formerly head master of Shrews- bury, and the Hon. Mrs. Alington had the honour of dining with the King and Queen at Windsor on Thursday. The marriage will take place quietly at 11.30 on Monday at St. Mary Abbott's, Ken- sington, of Lieut. George Cunynghame Tylor, R.F.A., younger son of the late Joseph Tylor, of Fir Toll, Mayfield, Sussex, and Frances Hard-castle, only daughter of Francis WoUey Dod of Edge Hall, M alp as. The President of the French Republic has conferred the Croix de Chevalier of the Legion of Honour on Capt. E. R. Kearsley, D.S.O., R. W.F., son of Major Kearsley, late 7th Dragoon Guards,' of Stapley House, Wrex- ham. Capt. Kearsley was mentioned in de- spatches on January, 1916. The engagement is announced between Capt. Prince Alexander Albert of Battenberg, Grenadier Guards, eldest son of Princess Henry and. of the late Prince Henry of Batten- berg, and Lady Irene France Adza Denisom, only daughter of the Earl and Countess of Londesborough. The impending marriage has the King's entire sanction and approval. Captain the Hon. Frederick Guest has been appointed Chief Liberal Whip to the Government, in place of the Hon. Neil Prim- ro..(t, resigned. Captain Guest, who will be 42 next month, has been Liberal M.P. for East Dorset since 1911. He is brother of Lord Wimborne, Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, and has many family connections with Shrop- shire, whence the Guests originally sprang. Lieut. John Godsal, son of Major Godsal, of Iscoyd, who was recently a patient at one of the Casualty Clearing stations in France, having met with an accident, as a result of which he had to have part of one of his fingers amputated, is now convalescent,1 Lieut. Go& sal, who has been with the Welsh Division since its formation, has returned to duty. He is one of the most popular officers in his Division, and is held in high esteem by all who know him. Capt. J. W. McKill, R.W.F., and brother- in-law of Dr. H. Venables Palin, Crescent House, Wrexham, has been awarded the Military Cross for "conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty." According to the offi- cial account, he commanded a raid, on the night of February 21, in which we took five i prisoners and inflicted severe losses on the enemy. He showed marked ability and cool- ness throughout, not only during the raid but also in the subsequent withdrawal under, heavy hostile rifle and. artillery fire. Mr. Vivian Piercy, the eldest son of Major B. H. Piercy and the late Mrs. Piercy, of Marchwiel Hall, and a lieutenant in the Royal Welsh Fusiliers, who has been seriously, wounded, is in a hospital in France. He was shot through both legs and his right thigh is badly broken. His friends will be glad to hear, however, that the latest report is that he is going on well, and there is now no further fear of his losing his leg. Mr. Vivian. Piercy, who was mentioned in despatches, had only rejoined his battalion last January, having just recovered from his previous wounds.
