LAMPETER COLLEGE AND THE PROPOSED EDUCATIONAL CONFERENCE. To the Editor of the Aberystwyth Observer. Sir,-The proposed educational Conference has called forth a good deal of correspondence owing to the fact that it was suggested to embrace representa- tives from Lampeter without the inclusion of the other colleges of lesser importance in the Principality. such as Bala, &c. Now, sir, it appears to me. that those who raise this hubbub—including the Prin- cipal of Aberystwyth College, who is a Nonconfor- mist first and a Principal next-forget one fact which is of paramount importance. It would be most unfair to exclude Lampeter from the Conference, be- cause it is an undenominational College. It is true that the majority of its students are trained for the Church of England, but this is not absolutely so, and when a student enters these walls no test is applied to him-whether he belongs to the Church or Salva- tion Army. Can this be said of any of our sectarian colleges ? Certainly not. If a young man goes to Bala Calvinistic Methodist College he must be a Cal- vinist, and so on with the colleges belonging to all the other sects. I see no reason at all why Lampeter should be treated differently to the other three University Colleges of Wales; but if the Nonconfor- mist colleges are to be recognised 80 also should Ystrad Meurig, Brecon, and Llandovery schools, and other schoels of equal importance. Yours, &c., EDUCA TIONIST. SMALL POX. To the Editor of the Aberystwyth Observer. Sir,-The present serious outbreak of small-pox— according to a. most valuable pamphlet by Mrs C. Leigh Hunt Wallace, entitled "Physianthropy"- appears to be nature's effort to throw off the evil in the human system resulting from years of improper food and living. The accomplished authoress statis- tically proves that, during the last small.pox epi- demic of 1871-2, when nearly 50,000 persons died from small-pex alone, there was not one death over the average percentage for the nine previous years, but that ten per cent. less people died during the period, including the deaths from small-pox. With this fact before us how important it is for people to study those laws which regulate personal aad home sano tion, with purity of food, and for the authorities to exert their powers in a proper house sanitary inspec- tion.-Sir, yours faithfully, + NEMESIS.
