Childrens Strike at Haverfordwest
Children's Strike at Haverfordwest ACTION FOR DAMAGES AGAINST TEACHER. Before Judge Lloyd Morgan at Haverford- west on Tuesday, Thomas Griffiths, The next- of-kin of Sarah Jane Griffiths. an infant, Front street, Rosemarket, sued Bruce Czitt;iii- ach and Annie Cattanach, Rosemarket. tor £ 2o damages for assault. Mr Great'tevI, (solicitor. Pembroke Dock, was for the plaintiff and Mr A. A. Thomas (instructed by Messrs Lowless and Lowless. solicitors, J'enibrokfr Dock) for the defendants. Mr Greathead said that Sarah Jane Griffiths was a child ten years of age, and attended the Rhosmarket Non-Provided School. t;,i April 13. while the children were going out of school after the morning lessions, she knocked over an oil-stove placed in the middle of the floor. Mrs Cattanach, who was the wife of Mr Cataiiach (the headmaster), was engaged as an assistant teacher in the school, and on the stove being knocked over she caught hold of the child and dealt her some severe blows on the head. neck and back. The little girl went home crying bitterly, and told her sister (the girl was an orphan) how Mrs Cattanach had struck her. She became very ill, and the next day, when Dr Dundas, Neyland, was called in, the child was paralysed, had convul- sions, an dwas unable to speak. For a fort- night the girl was at deaths' door, but after- wards began to recover. Dr Dundas. Neyland. said he visited the child on April 14, and found her in a feverish state. She complained of headache and back- ache, and was also vomiting constantly. There were no external marks. Early next morning he received an urgent call to go out to Rosemarket. and he then found the girl Griffiths unconscious, suffering from convul- sions. with the right arm paralysed and the right leg partially so. On one side there was facial paralysis. The opinion lie formed was that the girl was suffering from a very severe nervous shock. Her condition was consistent with her having received a blow on the side of the head or neck, even though there were ) no external marks. In February he attended the child when she was suffering from bilious- ness and a numbness of the right arm. but lie did not think there was any connection be- tween the illness then and now. Dr Mills, Haverfordwest, said the convul- sions were of an epileptic form, but that did not mean that they had any connection with epilepsy. He did not think an ordinary shock would cause them in an ordinary child, but it might in a hyper-sensitive child. Both p he and Dr Dundas agreed that the convulsions were not due to any mechanical injury, but to shock of some sort. He did not say that the shock was not caused by blows, but the blows would have to be very severe. A number of school children gave cvidcncc of seeings Mrs Cattanach hit the girl Griffiths, who afterwards cried. Bertie Davies said he was one of the strikers. His Honour: How wlong have you been on strike ?—Since April. Mr Greathead mentioned that practically the whole village was on strike since this occurrence. There was a lot of local feeling. H's Honour remarked that the children were taking up a hopelessly improper atti- tude in staying away from school. But Mrs Cattanach should consider whether her influ- ence in the place was not gone. For the defence Mrs Cattanach was called. She said she had had a very long experience of teaching, and was asked to go into this school by the managers. When the girl knocked over the oil stove some oil was spilt on the floor, and she gave her three slaps on the back telling her to be more careful as she might have set the school on fire Alexander Bruce Cattanach. husband of the last witness, said that under special circum- stances punishment was inflicted by assistant teachers. He had heard of the education committee's regulations, but was not familiar with them. The punishment inflicted by his wife was only the .natural punisment. She did not strike the child on the head. He was not aware that corporal punishment in the Rosemarket School had been going on to a. ra-ther great extent. His Honour said he was unable to find that the shock from which the child suffered was entirely connected with the punishment in- flicted. After the medical evidence. that would be an unreasonable straining of the case against the defendants. In this case there I was a tremendous conflict of evidence be- tween the children and the teachers, and while he himself did not like the idea of corporal punishment and was opposed to children being knoeke,d about by masters and mistresses, he was not satisified that in this case the punish- ment was excessive or unreasonable. He thought the teacher gave the child some slaps about the back, and that she; was frightened --ti.at was all lie could say. He gave judg- ment for the defendants, but at the same time expressed the opinion that it would be very much better for the education authority to make arrangements for Mrs Cattanach's re- moval to some other school.

r Carmarthen Board of Guardians
Carmarthen Board of Guardians. Mr J. J. Bowen presided at the fortnightly meeting of the Carmarthen Board of Guard- iains which was held at the Guildhall on Saturday. OUTDOOR RELIEF. The reports of the relieving officers showed the amount of ourdoor relief distributed dur- ing the fortnight ended on the previous Board day to have been as follows:-First week: 629 paupers, a decrease of 39 as compared with the corresponding week last year expenditure, t94 7s Id, a decrease of £2 15s Id. Second week 624 paupers, a decrease of 34; expen- diture, £8-1 Is 3d. an increase of £1. THE TREASURER'S REPORT. The Treasurer's report showed the balance in hand on the previous Board-day to have been t,5,435 Os 3d. MASTER'S REPORT. The Master in his report stated: "Divine Service was conducted at the House on Sun- dav. 6th June, by the Rev E. I Thomas, Tabernacle Baptist Church, and on Sunday, June 13th, by the Rev Henry Jeffreys, on behalf of Union street Cong. Church. lhe number of casual paupers relieved during the fortnight was 48 against 136 for the same period last year. Periodicals were kindly given for the use of the inmates by Miss G. M. E. White, lady guardian; also tobacco was given to the inmates by Mrs W. J. Williams, 'Portiscliffe and rhubarb for the house by Miss Morris. Penbryn." THE OCCUPANTS OF A LAUGHARNE HOUSE. A lie Clerk read a report regarding the household of Margaret Pearce, of Laugharne. At the last meeting it was stated that there were several children in the house; but it had been impossible to ascertain whether they were the woman's own children or whether she had been nursing them for somebody else. The report by the relieving officer stated that the house consisted of two rooms and a small room at the back. The report further stated that the woman's brother resided there, and that a negro who was probably the father of one of the children passed week ends there. The Clerk, in answer to questions, stated that if the woman was the mother of the chil- dren there was no need for registration under the Children's Life Protection Act. Mr J. Jones (Plas): Are they legitimate The Clerk Nothing is known. She declined to give any particulars. Some of them were born in Swansea. They were not registered in this district. Mr LI. Morgan: Can't we take proceedings against them for overcrowding ? The Clerk: That is for the District Council. It, was decided to report the matter to the Sanitary Authority. NO BONUS ASKED FOR. A letter was receibed from the Pontypridd Union asking whether the outdoor officers had made an application for any bonus on account of the increased cost of living. Mr J. Jones: Our officials have been very patriotic. They have not asked for it. VOTE OF CONDOLENCE. A vote of condolence was passed with the Master on the death of his brother, Mr John Price at Crynant. Mr Hugh R. Williams, the L.G.B. Inspec- tor. said that lie was satisfied with the ad- ministration of the Infirmary and the Cottage Home. The arrangements were most homely and satisfactory. Their work was most hope- ful in regard to the children. They could not do much for the old people except provide for their maintenance. The workhouse was very cleanlv and well managed. The objection to it was chieflly sentimental; many poor people would be better off there than in their own homes. He was surprised that after ten months of war they were able to deal so generously in the matter of outdoor relief; and they were to be congratulated that they were abVto do so. At the same time they v, ould do well to economise as much as possible He was glad that they had taken steps towards the classification-of those receiving outdoor relief, so as to encourage those who were thrifty and of good character. The number of tramps in Wales had been reduced appar- ently to the irreducible minimum, and it might be well to investigate the matter in order to find out who those comprising the minimum were. were.
WEATHER AND THE CROPS
WEATHER AND THE CROPS. Wheat promises to be a good yield of grain on clays and wherever the subsoil is able to supply vital moisture. AN inter beans and barley, and even oats, have stood the season surrisingly well, but the strain on spring-sown oats, barley, and peas is being severely felt, and the prospective short yield of hay is be- ginning to affect the market for feeding stuffs The drought extends to France. Russia re- ports winter wheat as of fair promise. The Canadian crop reports are now good, and the wheat area is put as 14 million acres. The appalling devastations in Galacia will probably make the securing of the Hungarian harvest in early July a matter of great difficulty.- From Monday's "Mark Lane Express."
650 Milk Fine
,650 Milk Fine. A heavy penalty was inflicted by the Car- diff stipendiary on Thursday in a case in wnlch Howell Evans, Cwmdwyfran Farm, Bankyfeliix, Carmarthen, was summoned for sending under contract to a customer at Car- diff. milk which upon analysis was found to be deficient in butter fat to the extent of 12 per cent. Mr Howell Davies defended. The wile of the defendant, who declared that the milk was placed in a churn in exactly the same state as it came from the cows, stated in cross-examination by Mr F. W. Ensor that she could not account for the defi- ciency in this way, that when cows were first turned out the milk became poorer. The Stipendiary: Knowing that it would bo poorer did you give them any extra feeding stuffs? Witness: No; becaus3 we hadn't got any. Previous convictions at Swansea were ad- mitted. and the magistrate imposed a fine of £ 50 or three months.
