rWar Savings at Wrexham
r War Savings at Wrexham, A meeting of the Wrexham District War J Savings Local Central Committee was held at Wrexham, on Thursday, with Mrs. Fenwick in the chair. The several associations which have been formed in the district were well represented together with members of the dis- trict Council, and others. I' The Secretary, Mr. Vernon Price, submit- ted a list of the associations; giving the amounts which each had subscribed up to j March 31. The return showed, very striking results and that the satisfactory progress I had been continued. The total amount sub- scribed now exceeded £ 23,000. A number of new associations were formally affiliated, and I the Secretary said he was in communication with il M. Inspector c! Schools with a view to i the formation of fresli associations in the schools, and it was expected that the head i teachers would giye their best assistance in thlS good cause, i Mr. Cross, the organiser, reported that a number of public meetings had been held in ,nuiii b ?--r of r nie e,' ? various parts of the district, and these had resülted in the work being taken up with enthusiasm. At the request of the Food' Campaign I Committee, it wa;' dcidd to give all possible | assistance in promoting the campaign in th? j district, ard each association is invited to carrv Gul-I the scheme in their own areas. Mrs. Fenwiek said she had arranged for a I" series of war cookery demonstrations, and had been successful ir. obtaining the services of an expert, who could begin her lecture at j Bangor on-Dee on May 7. Mr. Cross under- took to arrange similar demonstrations in the other parts of the district Atttention wa? diswn to the issne of 5 per cent. Bxchequer bonds, which are now tRe only form of direct war investment on sale other than war saving? certificates, and these are to be recommended to those who have bought up to the legal limit of their holding of war savings certificates, namely 500 certi ficatoa. it was pointed out that the Chan- ceilor of the Exchequer required 96,0130,000 a day, and one third of the 1-iic,v raised by the strenuous work of the War Savings Com- mittees in January and February had already been spent. In these Ittst stages of the war, money v. as of vital importance, and contiuous elfort was necessary.
I Juvenile Employment
I Juvenile Employment. THE POSJTIQN IN DENBIGHSHIRE. The officer appointed for the county of Den- bigh under the Education (Choice of Employ- ment) Act, 1910, in a, report for 1816, states that, owins: to the abnort-xial demand for labour occa- sioned by the war, thE) high wages paid, and the ease with which children could obtain employ* l.ment. there was a considerable falling off in the number of children who registered at the juvenile bureau as sseeking employment immedi- ateiy after leaving school In many cases child- ran secured proniisos of employment long before leaving school. Head teachers had been instructed to fill trp and se-iici to the committee a report card in re- spect of every child leaving school, but this waa done in regard to only a very small proportion of the children This, is due. no doubt, to the depletion of the staffs, but the matter demands immediate atienrlon if the- functions of he com- not'(' D ?tr i ng mittee are to be properly discharged. During the year 357 children were granted exemption certificates, whereas before the war the num- ber of exemptions granted was 15 to 20 per annum. ThA by laws have not been relaxed or waived, Mere than half of those who were 6X.. arained for labour certificates failed to paas the er.aminn-rAoh.

DISTINGUISHED SERVICE CERTIFI- CATE.A. local soldier, Lance-Corpora-I Fred. Davies, R.W.F., has been awarded a Dis- tinguished Service Certificate by his commanding officer for conspicuous bravery on the battlefield. The gallant deed is thus described :—" He acted with conspicuous bravery on the night of October 12-13, in a raid carried out by his bat- talion. They crawled up to an enemy machine guns, which was hindering our party, bombed the personnel and captured one of them a 'nd brought back the machine gun to our lines."

Fletcher's establishment in Link- street. and before he enlisted just after the be- ginning of war was employed with the Co- operative Society. THE SCIENCE AND ART SCHOOL. letter has been received from the Board of E-ltt- cation intimating that upon consideration cf the volume, character, cost and merit of the work done in this school, and of the efficiency with which the work is organised and co-ordinated with that- of other schools r and classes in tho locality, they have decided with some hesitation to pay an inclusive grant of SaO in respect of the current financial year. The Board rdds its regret that, a school situated in a populous dis- trict m an industrial area, and serving many communities, should continue to show such a steady decline as to make it doubtful wnetaor its continued recognition as a school of art is justified. The Board add that the Local Educa- tion Authority should seriously consider what de- velopments are possible so as to make the school —the only school of art in North Wal(-E--of real service to the workers employed in the local industries. The letter is now beinv- con. sidered by the authorities responsible for th* sc hool. I I GIZESFORD. THE PARISH CHURCH.-Mr. Wm. D.
