WELSH COUNTY SCHOOLS ASSOCIATION PAPER BY AN ANGLESEY HEADMASTER WELSH v. FRENCH. The president, Miss Collin, B.A., of Car- diff, presided at the meetings of the Welsh County Schools Association, hedd in the Musio Hall, Shrewsbury, on Friday night and OJ) Saturday. Correspondence was read showing that the London University had not yet ac- oeded to the request of the Central Welsh Board recognising the Senior Central Welsh Board's certificate in lieu of the London mat- riculation. It was agreed that the Association take further steps in the matter. It was also agreed to communicate with the secretary of t'he joint bocu-d of the Northern Universities re the inters!nange of matriculation certificates. Professor Findlay, of the Manchester Uni- versity, and formerly headmast-or of the Inter- mediate School, Cardiff, gave an address oh "The Trend of Educational Reform in out Lar/e Cities," and said one effect was that the popular imagination had been stirred to tihe need of higher education. Mr R. W. Jomes, of Gelligaer, and Miss Jones, of Wrexham, were appointed on tb" Welsh Central Board. After the President's adress. Miss Doibell, Pontypool, moved a vote of thanks to Miss Collin, wbJioh was passed. Mr S. J. Evans, of Llangefni, read a paper on "Welsh in County Schools." He said in 1905, out of 2529 pupils who took the Central Welsh Board examinations, 410, or about 15 per cent., offeted Wellih; in 1904, 463 out of 3638, or between i7 and 18 per cent.; and in 1905, 549 out of 3020, or about 18 per cent. Those taking Firendh were over four times as numelo;w. Hhey were expedited to develop their system of education on natural lines, and the most characteristic subject of all-the subject which, above all others, should differ- entiate their curriculum, from that of English Gchools-the-y 'found taught in scarcely half the sohools, even to the standard of the junior certificate, and not quite one-fifth of those pre- sented for examination were sufficiently trained in that vital part of tlheir education to be I t,ptd in the subject. He did not condemn all County Schools. Some of the headmasters had sthown themselves thoroughly alive to the para- mount claims of Welsh, and tauight it with ereat thoroughness (applause). He had heard of one school in Carnarvonshire in which, out of the 371 pupils tha.t had been educated there, all but 25 had had a thorough, and systematic course of trn-ining in Welsh (applause). About the remedy, (he mid it was not a. difficulty that rrvri-] he dealt with by eloquence on public piforms P. d by writing letters to the press. Wi'liflig hands were needed, while a partial solution seemc.1 to lie in the examinations of C4"itral Wflsh Board. If, too, Welsh was to be efficientlv taught, they must ha.ve teadhers who knew sornelftirug of the structure of the language
