COUNTY SCHOOL SCHOLARSHIPS. Mr H. Evan Thomas (chairman) presided over a meeting of the Builth County School Governors, held on Tuesday afternoon, and there were also present Mrs Amos Williams, the Rev S. H. Wenham, the 'Rev. D. A. Griffith, the Rev Lewis Beynon, Mr T. B. Lewis, and Mr C. J. Wearn (clerk). Free places were awarded to the two first girls and boys on the list given by the examiner as the result of the entrance I examination. Scholarships were given to the six girls and four boys who obtained over 50 per cent. of marks. Owing to the extra number of scholarships awarded, and the diminishing amount of balance in the scholarships fund, the governors agreed not to award any augmenta- tions to scholarships this year. CASES OF HARDSHIP ARISING OUT OF THE WAR.—At a meeting of the Builth Board of Guardians on Monday, Mr H. Evan-Thomas iiaid he desired to refer to a case mentioned at the last meeting of a mother whose four sons had joined the Army. The report which appeared in the papers seemed to imply that the mother had to apply to the Guardians for relief in consequence of the sojas having gone to serve their country. As a matter of fact, the mother had been in receipt of relief for some time, and although she had an allotment of pay from her sons, there was no desire on the Guardians' part to reduce the amount of her relief. Mr Evan-Thomas added that he felt sure assistance could be obtained in case of hardship from the County Fund, also in case of any person in the district who had relatives imprisoned in Germany. EVANS EXHIBITIONS. A meeting of the trustees of the Evans Exhibitions was held at the Council School on Tuesday afternoon, the Rev D. A. Griffith (chairman) presiding. Others present were the Revs R. James (Llanwrtyd Wells) and Lewis Beynon, Mr H. Evan-Thomas and Mr C. J. Wearn (clerk). The trustees awarded exhibitions to the three boya who.sat at the recent examination.
