r I Welsh Agriculture
r Welsh Agriculture. FURTHER CONCESSIONS ASKED. A meeting of the Welsh Agricultural Council was held at Shrewsbury, Mr. Brvner Jones presiding. It was stated that there was every reason to believe that the Council would receive a grant from the Carnegie Trust. Communications were received from Car- diganshire and Breeonshire War Agricul- tural Committees, protesting against- the importation of Irish agricultural labourers. Members of the Council suggested that they would gladly welcome a. few of the Irish agricultural labourers and it was agreed that no action be taken. It was agreed "That the Council ex- presses its appreciation of the cordial letter of the President of the Board of Agriculture, and conveys an expression of its willingness and desire to assist to the fullest possible extent in developing the movement for increased food nroduction." It was agreed tha.t the Council, nS a body representing the whole of Wales. should submit evidence on agricultural education to the Commission on Univer- sity Education in Wales; also that the foim.al evidence submitted should consist of a series of resolutions. The Council decided to appoint four witnesses to give evidence and selected Messrs. H. Jones Davies and W. J. Grant (South Wales), and Messrs. WTm. Fdwards and E. R. Davies (North Wales). Mr. E. R. Davies presented the report of the deputation appointed to wait on the Board of Agriculture and on the War Office in connection tfith. the retention of labour on the land, and he went on to i remark on the difficulties that farmers were experiencing in regard to knowing where they stood in respect to labour. His oninion was that the respite until Januarv 1st of all men engaged in agriculture would have to be extended, because the substitution material and the census re- turns as to labour would not be ræd,. in time to make an adequate review of the position by that time. In anv case, he should move .that the Council understands that the agricultural labour census re- cently taken is not yet completed, and in view 0E the difficulty of ascertaining its re- sults so as to review the pressing needs oT agriculture, ursres the Board of Agri- culture and the War Office to extend the nenod of respite for all agricultural workers until April 1st. Mr. John Davies seconded the motion, which was carried.

Death of ProminentI Tradesman
Death of Prominent Tradesman. MR. WILLIAM M. JONES, MACHYNLLETH. The death occurred on Monday week, after a long illness. of Mr. William M. Jones, Glasgow House. Mr. Jones was in his seventieth year and had for many years carried on a large drapery business in successdon to his late father, Mr. John M. Jones. For many years Mr. Jones was postmaster at Machynlleth, until great changes were made in the postal arrange- ments and the duties became such that he was unable to attend to the Post Office and to his extensive business. He was the oldest tradesman in the town, as well as one of the most useful members of the community. There is no public office which he did not some time or other fill. As a member of the Urban District Council he rendered valuable services, the chair of which he occupied for the usual term. He was one of the most faithful supporters of education in the town and was one of the few now remaining of those that fought hard battles to get a British School estab- lished which eventually led to the forma- tion of a School Board. There are but a few left who realise the almost-insur- mountable obstacles which required men of indomitable courage to overcome. Mr. Jones was one of the stalwarts. He also was a foundation member of the Noncon- formist Cemetery Comnrttee; and when- ever the history of these ventures come to be written Mr. Jones's name must appear largely therein. Intermediate education found in him aft intelligent and earnest supporter. From the opening of the In- termediate School he was a member of the vBonrd of Governors. Mr. Jones was senior deacon at Maengwyn Church of which he had been a life-long member. The services he rendered his church in every official capacity are invaluable. Notwith- standing his great business ties, he found time to attend every Sunday and week-day meeting whenever he was -expected to be nresent. He took great interest in the history of his Connexion and was better versed in that of (his part of the county of Montgomery than anybody else in the distr-ct. His death will therefore be a great loss to the Monthly Meeting. The great 'work whV-h Mr..Jones did in connection with temperance, public as well ns private,, will never be fully known. No trouble was too great for him to get per- ^ons addicted TO drink to sign the temper- ance pledge. In that way his personal influence and rxample were the means of reforming m'ny. In politics Mr. Jones was an enthusiastic Liberal. He carried ts banner aloft- at a time when to do so meant great sacrifices. A good Christian man. always upright and reliable, his loss to the town and his church will be verv great. He leaves a widow, four sons and two daughters to mourn their loss. His eldest daughter, a trained nurse who from 1 he commencement of the war was on service with the army in France until a f(1\Y weeks ngo. returned home to nurse her ipvnlid father The funeral, wirch was private, took n ace on the 13th at the Nonconformist « e'rietery.

Aberayron County School
Aberayron County School. PRIZE DAY CELEBRATION. The twentieth annual prize day in con- nection with the Aberayron County School was held on Thursday. Alderman John M Howell, J.P., presided. He was sup- ported by the Rev. W. W. Poole Hughes M.A., warden of Llandovery College, who was accompanied by Mrs. Poole Hughes, Miss Rice, and his brother, the Vicar of Mold, Mrs T. Z. Jones, Mr D. A. Davies. managers; Mr C. J. Hughes, B.A., head- master; Mr. E. O. James, M.A., Mr W. J. Jones, B.Sc., Miss Furby, B.A., Miss Watson, B.A.. Miss Davies, B.A., and Miss Watson, B.A.. Miss Davies, B.A., and Miss Jones, coakery mistress. The Chairman apologised to the pupils because no tea was served as usual. It was only a small sacrifice in those trying days. He extended a warm welcome to the Warden of Llandovery College, not only because he was the head of one of the chief public schools in the country, but be- cause he was born and bred in Aberayron, and was in that peculiar sense one of them- selves. He also welcomed Mrs Hughes, Miss Rice and the Warden's brother, the of Mold. Ir. commenting on the work of the School, the Chairman said that there were two points which occurred to him. One was that the proportion of girls to beys was largely on the increase I during the last few years. The numbers now were as sixty to forty. He thought the cause might be that boys were offered remunerative occupations straight from school. The sea was once more drawing their sons and he was glad of it^ A boy going to sea- started with a pay of £ 7 a month and his maintenance, more than was paid to some curates, and more than was paid to seventy- five per cent of the pastors and preachers and teachers in Cardiganshire. The other point was—they were hampered by the diffusion of energy in trying to teach so many subjects. Inspectors and insnec- tresses pounced down upon them now and again and insisted on greater attention being nard to this or the other subject which he or she was sent to them to accentuate and the wo-king of the school was thus being switched off to this siding and that siding. The work of the Man- agers had become difficult owing to the war and other causes. In recent years they had lost two strong and devoted men who shouldered the buv''ens of the S-hool with p. will — the late Major Price Lewes and Dr. Davies. They had now to do without them. There were constant changes the staff. They were seldom noticed by educational departments except to be worried and harried. No helping hand 'I' was extended to meet the exceptional cir- cumstances in which thev found them- seh 'es. The Agricultural Department of the Government did endeavour to heln the farmer by a scheme of substitution. It would he a far easier matter for the Fduca- tion Department to apply a scneme of" sub- stitution." It was just now mak'tig pre- limnary enoniries. In the meantime the managers had to fight for themselves-—sink or swim pist as they might. On the previous day he had to sknd 1 y one of their teachers 'in the summary jurisdic- tion court at Aberayron. 'He had fought for keeping that teacher at his post. ::n the same spirit as the agricultural officer fought for keeping the minimum of men on a farm, and he did not mean to apolo- gise for his conduct. He appealed to all classesto rally to the support of their school by sympathy and heln. It was by far the most valuable asset which the town and district n-sscssed. The nunils saw «W1— p" » Jones accompanying The Headmaster rear annual d'n-0rt. The "Warden handed the prizes and certi- ficates to the pupils whose names fo^ow :— Higher certi^te: Funicc May Fyr.ns, May LI ewellvn. Senior certificates: Bessie M. Davies, May Fvaus, F Blodwen Morgan. Margaret M. Owen. Annie M. Rnherts, J. TTywel Wnhams, Thomas W 'lb.ams. Junior certificate: F. Glvn Daves, J. Myfanwv Bavins, Dorothy Evans, Hettie J. Evans, J. Maldwyn Evans. D. IJovd Herbert. Margaret M. Jenkins. F. Muriel Jones. Danie1 Jones, Ldian M Pugh. J. Tdwal Roberts. Mary Williams, Thomas Williams. Evan Morgan. The Warden afterwards deliv- ered a very telling address which was listened to deep interest and applauded with emphasis by the girls and hoys. He said it a delight to him to visit Aberayron and to breathe a whiff of his native air. He congratulated the Headmaster on the results of "last year's work, as shown by the report just read. It means continuous hard work for the I staff. He congratulated, too, the re- cipients of the prizes, but they must not feel elated. He would rather encourage those who had not gained prizes. His experience among his fellow students and as head teacher was that bcys who did not win distinction had often got to the top and had made a great success of life. He did not intend to enlarge on academic I questions. It was evident already that the war was going to bring about great changes in the educational ideals anu methods of their country. Already there were sign of change, and the change was gmng to begin at the top. He was a mem- ber of a conference ol: head teachers of colleges ralld public schools which were about to meet with the view of arriving at common action and co-ordinating their functions, Ii: was suggested that a certain standard u1 scientiac proiicieiiey should tie. required as a condition to entry, say, Kjxdoid. tie agieeu to a certain exujj,^ vwtn tnat su^asnon. uut ne tiiougnw max to insist on a ilia enema oical test wocuu oe all error. teome line nnnas were to constituted that wiey coma not sûne a'jstruse nuttneiuaticHi prooiems. tie inclined to tlnuK that a certificate to attenuance at a course oi stumes at a pre- purauwy school or co.itge as ui oviuiiig an adequate proot ot the necessary insiglit nno Uie pi .nciOie;s and meaning of sc.entine inquiry siiouid sumce. What was it m scliooi ,that: contributed to the larger palL ot education-the cultivation of character:- JlJere WOl e three elements, discipline esprit de corns, the fear of Cod. JUiscipt. ne took them out of themselves. There was a little boy brought to his college by a lond mother who lor the first three months u rote kind letters home about his doings and tlie treatment he received and his mother was pleased with his letters. At the eud of tnree months his ietter to his mother contained only the "fixtures" for next term, and nothing else. His mother heemll alarmed and came to see him about the change, and he replied -Madame there is now some hone for him he has be- gun to forget himself." There were two .v." c s of parents who were a great trial to headmasters tnc world over. (Laughter) One was the person who transferred his son over body and soul to the teacher, saying "You take care of him and wl- ne can do, and get him to do it, and I iold you responsible." X0 parent wa- "ea son able who did that, no "one sho dd take that view. There was another kind ¡ or parent who fussed and flurried an-1 terfered day by day. What he called esprit de corps brought the boys and girls fo the right relationship to one another. The Master had often to interfere in aefimng that relationship. Then there was the fear of God. which was the begin- ning of wisdom, and its stay, throughout

On being found the body was takon charge of by the authorities and interred on November the 23rd at Saint Cyrus Par- ish Cemetery.
