WELSHMEN AS SCHOOLMASTERS IN WALES. I The following candidates for the post of 1 head master to the central classes, under the auspices of the local Pupil Teachers' Assooia- tion, appeared before the Ruabon Board at its monthly meeting1:—Messrs. David Morris I (Blaenau Festiniog), Luke Bradley (Llanelly), J. R. Thomas (Colwyn Bay), and A. E. Wykea (Wrexham).-The Chairman (Alderman E. Hooson) proposed that the selection be con- fined to the two Welsh candidates, Messrs. Morris and Thomas.—The Rev. J. Davies (vicar of Penycae) said that after interviews with the candidates he could not see his way to sup- port the motion. He was a Welshman to the backbone, but would not agree to Welsh being a stumbling block to the progress of the country. They were making Welsh a scapegoat to suit their own purposes. He would like to know how many 01 the schools in their district had availed themselves of the privileges granted for teaching Welsh.—The Clerk: Welsh as a specific subject was taken up by some of the schools, but fell through.—The Rev. J. Davies: Those very teachers who recommended the appoint- ment of a Welsh master are the very persons who failed to take up the subject when they were given the opportunity. I propose as an .amendment the selection of Mr. A. E. Wykes, a gentleman fully qualified for the post.—The Chairman said a Welshman should be selected. —The Rev. J. Davies said it was only a matter of sentiment at present.—The Rev. W. B. Jones (Baptist) said that, having raised the question of appointing a Welshman at the last meeting, he felt bound to support the motion. He had spoken to several ratepayers on the matter, and all of them insist on the selection of a Welshman.—On being put to the meeting, three voted for the amendment and four against, the motion being declared carried.—The board having discovered that Mr. Morris was not a graduate, and Mr. Thomas not certificated, it was resolved to re-advertise, and that "only Welsh need apply."
