I Tregaron County School. 1 PIIIZE DISTR' K'T"j TON BY MISS LOXDALE. The annual prize distribution was made on Thursday by Miss Loxdale, Oastle Hill, in the presence of a large attendance. Mrs Evans, Albion House, chairman of the Governors, presided, and was supported by members of the Governors, Mrs. Rees Morgan, Llanddewi; Miss Jenkins, Tre- cefel; Mr. D L. Jones, F.A.I., Mr. Rees Jones, Emporium; Mr. T. Jones, chemist; Mr. T. Davies, PistiTleinon, Cellan; Mr D. D. Evans, Llanio; Mr. J Rees, C.M., Bont; Mr. M. Morgan, clerk; Mr. G. T. Lewis, M.A., headmaster, and other mem- bers of the staff. In his twentieth annual report, the I Headmaster said the work of the past session was equal :if not superior to that of any previous year. The subject of agriculture had been added to the sylla- bus since September, 1915, and this year two terms of bovs attended the classes. It was too early to form a definite opinion regarding the new departure, but in a few years he hoped to be able to report great progress. He trusted that farmers would show practical appreciation of the School's efforts by sending their sons in larger numbers to the School. It was intended adding the interesting subject of horticul- ture as soon as possible, as gardening is not getting the attention it deserved in the district. This term there were 112 pupils on the register, the highest number previously being 115 for one term only. For the first time—probably through boys being kept at home in consequence of the shortness of labour the number of rls exceeded the nu nber of boys. He was glad to see the number of girls steadily increasing, as it proved that parents appre- ciated the wide anrl useful scheme of study and the sound training of girls at the School. In the examinations the girls did remarkably well I:n cooking, needlework, and music. Over eighty old boys had joined the colours and manv had been engaged in actual fighting. Three had paid the extreme penalty—Private Stephen Jones, Abermeurig: Lieut. J. Llewelyn Griffiths, and Captain David Jones, Llanio. One had won the military cross--Lieut. Edwards, Penuweh. With regard to the work, one of ^he inspectors greatly compli- mented the neatness of the written work of the pupiils—a thing often neglected. The pupils had been remarkably fortunate in winning scholarships and exhibitions. the total last year amounting to JB115 ner annum. He felt grateful to Sir Garrod Thomas for the compliment he paid the School in lis recent speech at Tregaron. It was the fifth occasion on which Tregaron School had won the Cynddelw Welsh schol- arship of £20. Of the six county scholar- ships four were taken by Tregaron pupils and the first four places taken by the pupils. After giving a long list (f suc- cesses, the Headmaster expressed apprecia- tion of the services of the late Rev. D. Edw ardes of Orynfryn, who was chairman of Governors for many years. He was also grateful to Mr Loxdale for his thoughtful gift ef two leaving scholarships on the coming of age of his daughter. Their best thanks were also due to Professor Tyrrel Greeni fco- his continued support and the art prizes he annually gives. He likewise thanked the staff for their loyalty and keen sense of duty, as well as' the Clerk to the Governors for his valuable services. Miss Loxdale addressed the audience in an appreciative manner. She thanked the Governors for the honour conferred on her id had great pleasure in responding to • heir invitations. Mr. Loxdale took great interest in the School and also thought much of county schools throughout Wales. They had bridged the gulf between elementary schools and the University, a gulf that had previously been evident in the life of Wales. Her family thought much of the district and town where they had always been well and courteously received; and she personally would take care that nothing would intern et their friendship or alter their relations. Miss Loxdale's j speech wavs received with loud applause. | Mr. J. Rees, C.M., Bont, in proposing a vote of thanks to Miss Loxdale, said he did not know why he had been asked to do so unless he was the most nervous of the Governors. (Laughter). He had. perhaps, other qualifications, as he h^d been con- nected with the education of the district 1874. He saw one person onJiY present who was in harness then and in harness now—Alderman D. J. Williams, Argoed Hall. (Cheers). He congratulated the staff and pupils on their excellent report. The School had gone from success to success, and the past year had been the most successful of all. Though situated in a rural district with few advantages, the pupils had succeeded in winning laurels over a very large field. He urged them to greater efforts which would ensure greater success and greater honours. A straight line is one which lies evenly between two points. Let them nut down a godly point at the beginning and a godly point at the end and their lives could be arranged evenly 'between. (Cheers). Mr. Lewis, M.A., headmaster, seconded the proposition and said th:'t the pupils who went in for scholarships Mr. Loxdale gave had made a name lor themselves and ior the School. Mrs Morgan. Llanddewi, supporting the proposition, spoke of the place or women in the world and in the present crisis. The vote naming oeen earned with acclamation, Mrs. Loxdale who, with other friends, accompanied Miss Loxdale, thanked the audience for its kind recep- tion and thanks. She referred Lo well- known Tc-ii-oli,Ins- tile late lr. Hemy Richard, M.P., Mr. John Rowland, M.V.O.—and asked the pupils to follow in their footsteps and also to look up to their great countryman (Mr Lloyd Gecrge) for inspiration. Mr. T. Jones, chemist, in proposing a vote of thanks to Mrs. Evans, the chair- man, referred to the presence of two soldiers from the front—Private J. R Williams. Neuadd, and an old pupil of the School, and Pte T. Aubrey Thomas, Cam- brian Hous( Both were asked to stand and were given a rousing cheer. Mr. D. D. EVans, Llanio Fawr, seconded the vote to Mrs Etvans which was unanimously darried, and the meeting terminated by singing the national anthems.

IPwllheii and Peace
I Pwllheii and Peace. I DEBATE AT FREE CHURCH COUNCIL. At the annual meeting of Pwllheli Free Church Council on Thursday week Mr R. Albert Jones presiding the Rev. Puleston Jones moved a resolution to appeal to the Premier to exert the influence of his high office in favour of an early peace on hon- ourable terms. He welcomed the fact that Germany at last had declared for peace. It was an acknowledgment of the fact that her militarism had failed and become bankrupt, although two years ago she was prepared to offer her last man on the altar of militarism. If we fought for another four years and beat her mercilessly on the field of battle we should be no nearer de- feating the spirit which induced the war. I If there were any prospect of hanging the Kaiser and his counsellors and the news- paper editors who created the military spirit in Germany he would willingly go there to help them and contribute towards the halter—(laughter),—but the prolonga- tion otf hostilities would only accentuate militarism there. The Rev. Conway Prichard who seconded the resolution, declared that as a man professing Christianity he could not but welcome any sign of peace even though it came from the bloodiest enemy our country had ever had. Mr. Hugh Pritchard stated that whilst we all desired peace, we could not accept Mr. Jones's assumption that there was any change of spirit in Germany. Her ap- parent desire for peace might be simply a disguise to cover her military designs, and "nder the cloak of peace her intention was still to destroy and (crush her enemies. They did not desire a peace which would be ay truce, and a devil's trunp, ->+ that. He moved an amendment declaring n favour of peace based upon national honour and national right. Mr. M. G. Jones seconded the amend- ment. Mr O. Ellis Jones said it was inopportune to express any opinion on the matter and he moved a further amendment that no action be taken at present. Mr. Lloyd Humphrey* seconded, and the Mayor supported the further amendment which was carried as against the original motion, but on a further vote Mr. Hugh Pritchard's amendment was adopted by a majority of two.
LLANBEDROG. OBITUARY.—The remains of Mr. G. Davies, Llysmylyr, were laid to rest in the Llanbedrog Cemetery on December 1st. A great many friends from all parts attended the funeral, as Mr. Davies was very well known and much liked. He was the oldest trustee of the Wesleyan Chapel at Llanbedrog. The services were conducted by the Rev. Conway Pritchard, Wesley an minister, and the Rev. H. Jones Manley, rector. Deceased leaves a widow, daugh- ter, and son-in-law, and deep sympathy is felt with all the family, especially so with his son, Private W. H. Davies, R.A.M.C., who has been on active service in France since January and failed to arrive home in Lime fof the funeral.
ESPERANTO. In Green-lane Council School, Eccles, one of the leading schools of the borough. 200 boys and girls are learning Esperanto as one of the regular subjects. The Educa- tion Committee of Eccles, as well as the headmaster of the School, are to be con- gratulated on the bold way in which they have taken the lead. The children are being taught with enthusiasm by four teachers and the results hitherto achieved are most gratifying. All eyes are on the experiment, and the greatest interest is being shown not only by Esperantists but by educational authorities in various parts of the country. The mater is of such importance that it is intended to issue re- ports of the progress made.

IHousing of Working IClasses
I Housing of Working I Classes. CARNARVONSHIRE URGES" GOVERN- MENT ACTION. At Carnarvonshire Insurance Committee, on Saturday, the Medical Benefit Com- mittee recommended, on the proposition of Mr H Pritchard, Pwllheli, that a resolution should be adopted rejoicing to hear that the Government have under consideration questions likely to arise in connection with the distribution of labour and employment at the close of the war and is of opinion that the question which deserves first con- sideration is the housing of the working classes. The Committee, therefore, urge the Government to take immediate steps 011 national lines for the provision of adequate housing accommodation for the working classes at the conclusion of the war. Mr. Llew Davies moved the adoption of the recommendation. Mr. William George said the question was of such vital importance that the Com- mittee should appeal to all local authorities to adopt a like resolution. In that way they would, to use an Americanism, have pegged a (laim for housing reform im- mediately the war was over. Dr. Evans and Dr. Parry supported the motion, the latter remarking that they should declare definitely whether housing schemes should be carried through im- perially or by local authorities. Mr. Isaac Edwards said undoubtedly housing of the working classes should be made an imperial concern. Local authori- ties could not carry housing schemes through without resorting lo the rates, and that blocked the way to reform. Mr O. T Williams said the resolution stated clearly that steps should be taken "on national lines." Mr. William George sard it was impos- sible to wage a successful ciampaign against tuberculosis without housing re- form. It was simply passing sentence of death on a consumptive discharged from a sanatorium with the disease arrested if he was forced to return home to an over- crowded insanitary dwelling. i Mr. Isgoed Jones also supported the I resolution, which was carried unanimously.
Festiniog Sessions. ASSAULTING A TEACHER. Thursday, before Dr. Vaugh m Roberts, in the chair; J. Griihth, R T Williams, and Ben T. Jones, Esqrs. P.C. Morgan charged Robert Morris Jones, 1, Parry s-terrace, with using foul language on the public streets on Decem- ber 7th. The constable said the defendant was in drink. Inspector Owen said there were com- plaints about the use of indecent language by men of that class on the streets. Defendant, who did not appeir, wrote pleading for leniency, saying he was in a repentant mood. There were eleven pre- vious "-m i turns against defendant and lie was fined t2. Mrs. Jenilie Vaughan, a married teacher at Manod Council School#charged Dorothy Jones, Manod-road, with having assaulted her on the read 011 October 17th. Mr R. 0. Jones, clerk of the District Education Committee, who prosecuted, said defendant's son a boy of twelve, was in the complainant's class at school. The complainant was returning from school at half-past three, accompanied by another teacher, Miss Maggie Ellen Roberts, when the defendant came up to her and, making use of an offensive epithet, she struck the complainant with her clenched fist in the forehead. Mr. R O. Jones added that there was much complaint about the con- duct of defendant's son at school, but Mrs Jennie Vaughan had not punished the boy. She had however, to refer him to the Head Leacher (Mr. Bevan) on several occasions. The boy's father was in the army. It was impossible to maintain dis- cipline at school if parents molested -S Mrs. J»„;r¥a„gdhf„nd0,,t M Milter g)Yen by comDlainant and Miss Roberts.
