| Machynlleth Objector. [ COURTMARTIAL AT OSWESTRY. Major Yates, 1st Hereford Regiment, camp, Oswestry, on Friday on Pte. Ithel Davies (22), of the 4th R.W.F., who was charged with disobeying military orders. Davies (22), of the 4th R.W.F., who was Davies, whose home is at Glanrafon, Tafo- log, appeared before Machynlleth rural tribunal as a conscientious objector. On appealing to the County Tribunal, he was certified for non-combatant service. Questions relating to his alleged ill-treat- ment have been raised in the House of Commons by Mr Llewellyn Williams, M.P. Accused handed in a written statement J in which he said he objected on conscienti- ous grounds to military work, both comba- tant and non-combatant. He claimed that he was ei?9itled by Act of Parliament to be exempt from service. There were only i two men employed on his father's farm of | 1,000 acres, and he thought that he should f be allowed to remain there as he would be K, engaged on work of national importance. He would rather die a martyr's death than "betrav the spirit within." The Rev. R. E. Davies, Llanlleched, J* Bangor, said he had known accused from A childhood, and found him a poet and JE idealist. ■ Captain Davies, 4th R.W.F., who prose- cCuted, said that accused had been handed over to tie regiment as an ordinary soldier. The Rev. R. E. Davies said that accused had refused to call military witnesses as to j his alleged ill-treatment whilst under de- i1: tention at Mold for having disobeyed orders j because he did not wish to get them into if trouble. fj, A member of the court said that their T names had already been mentioned in Par- i liament. f Mr Pentir Williams, for the defence, said it, appeared there had been misunder- standing owing to the military authorities t not having been informed that accused W had been passed for non-combatant ser- [ vice. I Capt. Davies said that on April 25th | accused was fined £ 2 by the Machynlleth M magistrates and ordered to be handed over # to the military authorities for being an I absentee under the Military Service Act. I Capt.

EDUCATION IDEALS Discussed in Cardiganshire LOOKING FORWARD. The ideals and problems of education, particularly as affecting rural counties, were the subject of an interesting discus- sion at 'last week's meeting of Cardigan- shire Education Committee, Mr. D. C. Roberts, Aberystwyth, presiding. Con- nected with the discussion was the booklet entitled "To-day and To-morrow in Welsh Education," a rererendum on current educa. jtonal problems in Wales, addressed by the Central Welsh Board to Welsh education authorities. The questions to which the Board particularly directed attention were referred to the district committees and governors of /intermediate schools for con. sideration. The main discussion airose on a notice of motion given at the previous meeting by Nlr. Percy Wilkinson dirc-eting attention to the necessity for reform (lia educational administration alike in the interests of economy and of efficiency. Mr. Wilkinson explained that having lately been exceed- ingly busy he had not been able to give as much attention to the question as he desired. He was strengthened in his sug- gestion to appoint a special commiittee to deal with the question by the booklet "To- day and To-morrow." which gave direction to the course of inquiry. One of the questions he would like to have inquired into was the service rendered to the county by the rniversity College of Wales- whether the county got what it wanted and whether any improvement could be suggesjted to obtain further benefits. There was also the question of pupil teachers. He did not know where the pupd teacher's career began or ended. One thing they knew was that his career did not end in Cardiganshire schools. The Director had found grievous faults with the results of the entrance scholarship examinations. In- stead of giving education to the democracy they were giving education to the aris- tocracy, because the large majority of elementary school children never had the advantage of secondary and technical education. As (there was evidently some- thing in the air in regard to the whole question of education, he thought it would be we l for the Committee to take rime by the forelock to see in what respects the ediifice they had built could be "tilised to meet the requirements of the day. The Director's time could be better occupied by visiting schools than by being it-pt in the office to deal with various details of administration. Recently he (Mr Wilkin- son) visited several districts and took the opportunity of poking his nose into the schools—whether they 'liked it or not-and he saw a good deal which would have astomished the Director if he visited the premises unexpectedly. It was desirable that there should be supervision and he was certain that in the circumstances the Director had not the time for it. The Committee were continually hammering on the attendance question and spending a large sum of money without attaining the desired results. In other respects also the whole educational system wanted to be looked into. His object was not to pull down. but rather to build up. He there- fore proposed the appointment of a com- mittee of inquiry. If the results of in- quiry showed that everything was all right, that would give satisfaction to the Committee and he took it on the other hand that if alterations and modifications were shown to be needed that would also give satisfaction. Mr. J. H. Davies, in seconding the pro. position, sa.:d the Director's report on the examination for free places and teachers scholarships showed that only ten per cent. of children in elementary schools competed and that practically half the elementary schools in the county did not in any given yea; supply candidates for the secondary schools. The Committee felt that it was their duty as far as scholarships were con- cerned to get hold of the ablest children and give them every opportunity to pro- ceed to the secondary schools and if thought desirable, to the University. so that the best brains might be utilized for the gcod of the nation. The observations of the elementary head teachers on the Director's report showed where the difficulty arose and where the shoe pinched. 'T1 ere was great difference between the .tcilities of town and country schools to prepare for entering the secondary schools. In the large town schools it was rracticable for children to attend special classes; but in the small country schools that was prac- tically impossible. Another difficulty was that children living near schools could start their school life when five years old, whereas those living two or three miles away might not be able to start before they were seven or eight. The latter were under a disadvantage and the competition was not fair, seeing that the age limit for sitting the entrance scholarship examina- tion was thirteen. There was need for a different system of awarding scholarships. He was not sure whether the country was not ripe for giving free secondary educa- tion to all bright children. He doubted whether that would mean a threepenny rate. The Chairman said a penny rate would be sufficient. Mr. Davies said that was a'l the better. Instead of having entrance examinations elementary schoolmasters could recommend suitable children to receive free education and the headmasters of secondary schools could also be consulted. In the gap be- tween elementary and secondary schools there was room for change and improve- ment. He hoped the Committee would not forget the other important point of pro- ceeding from secondary schools to the University College. At present three scholarships, one of £ 15 and two of £10 each, were given for the whole county to pupils from secondary schools to enter the tjolJege. at problem affected the whole of Wales. The pupils who went from secondary schools to the colleges were the brightest children, and there should be a national fund to provide adequate scholar- ships for them on reaching a certain standard. He would not have that decided by order of merit, which was the curse of the system, because a child obtaining 250 marks would have a scholarship, and another child having 249 would not have a scholarship. Principal Roberts agreed with the sug- gestions indicated by Mr. Davies as to the direction in which reform was necessary. One point mentioned bv Mr. Wilkinson he would receive with caution. Mr. Wilkin- son seemed to expect that if the county supported students intending to become teachers the county should expect those teachers to give back their services to the county. He agreed that was desirable so far as possible, at any rate for a particu- lar period of their teaching service. On the other hand, Cardiganshire was not only an area for recruiting teachers for the county, but also for Great Britain and even a wider area. Education was the speciality of Cardiganshire. He did not know whether even religion took a higher level than education among the objects pursued by the county for generations. The work done for education, with all the difficulties and limitations, formed the greatest object of pride for the county, They had to make use of the opportunities which would arise on the close of the war in order to make further advance, so that J the county might not on:y serve its own objects but also take a leading place in promoting educational and social advance throughout the kingdom. The Committee of inquiry might consider the desirability of offering evidence on behalf of the county to the Royal Commission on University Education. The problem of continuation schools would have to be solved in Cardi- ganshire in a, way that would necessarily differ from the sollitiolls,lil other counties, because of the peculiar difficulties of trav- elling and the isolated situation of districts. The Rev. Arthur Thomas. Llandyssul, said the problem was to ease and to over, come the difficulties in the way of children from elementary schools enteirlng secondary schools, and as those, difficulties were mostly financial he hoped it would be pos- sible for the' country to spend more money on education. Mrs. T. Z. Jones, Aberayron thought the weak link was between the manage- ment of the elementary and secondary schools. If they were under one manage- ment there would be more harmonious working and better results. Mr. C. M. Williiams said the Principal and Registrar had taken the Committee on a higher plane than Ikir. Wilkinson's sug- gestions. The elementary schools would be placed on a4 better footing if the Direc. tor cou'd visit the schools oftener. From what he (Mr. Williams) had seen he was inclined to go back to the old regime of 'the school boards. There was a better control of the schools then. The county schools were not perfect, but were quite as perfect as the elementary schools. Every help was given by the governors by grant- ing bursaries to deserving pupils. There was danger of running away with too high ideals. A large number of the pupils never meant to enter the teaching profes- sion but to have a sound education and n good finish at the county schools. Com- paring the wealth of Cardiganshire with the wealth of other counties, he had no hesitation in saying that the county gave greater financial help to education than other counties, pro rata. The large sum of £9üV was contributed last year to the Agricultural Department, which the Com. mittee had always been anxious to sup- port; but he doubted whether full value was obtained for the money. Considering the small ratable value of the county, let the Committee deal with small matters. It would be unwise for him to enter the arena which Mr. J. H. Davies and Princi- pal Roberts had entered. He was thank- ful he had not had a high classical educa. tion. They had gone into matters beyond the Committee's province. What evidence could the Committee offer to the Royal Commission ? The idea of highly-educated people was that the bulk of the money should be paid to great teachers to whom £ 400 or JE500 a year was nothing. There was no doubt that the Cbmmission could save an enormous sum by amalgamating certain branches and preventing overlap}^ ing in the three colleges. Thousands of pounds were wasted by the appointment of men who had very little to do. He sup- ported the appointment of a committee, but thought the inquiry should be con- fined to elementary education and the con- tribution to higher education instead of mixing matters. The secondary schools were able to maintain themselves on their own resources with only the aid of a half, penny rate, and were able to keep their heads out of water. The governors were always ready to help bright pupils; but he was opposed to the idea of free education in secondary schools. He had in mind dozens of wealthy farmers whose children had been given scholarships year after year. The proper course for the Committee would be to discontinue scholarships to those families and to help the deserving and needy. & The Chairman was sorry that Mr Williams had addressed the meeting in that way. Mr. Williiams said there was danger of running away with too high idea,s. There was no danger in having high ideals. Mr. Williams said he did not object to high i:deals, but was doubtful whether they could be carried out. rr'J1- r'11 • _a iliie uiiairman said- Mr. Williams had also referred to the fact that scholarships had been given to the children of ilch people. That was undoubtedly irue; but it in-as due to defective administration. The system of awarding scholarships w help children was good. The difficulty was in carrying out .that system properly, and the object of inquiry was to see what im- provement could be effected in order to anid mistakes. Reference had been made to the desirability of giving a chance to the bright child. He felt the Committee had also to consider the child who was not the brightest. Intermediate schools had done good work and the governors had worked excellently in the past: but in spite of everything they had run into a groove of preparing children for certain profes- sions. That was not the fault of the schools v?'T'i ^U^ was ■a^s<> the fault of the Central \Velsh Board system. It should be pos- sible to provide general education for boys and girls who perhaps were not the brightest, but who in the end were the brightest, but who in the end were the backbone of the life of the country, and it should be possible to make good citizens of them. While the Committee had to deal mainly with elementary schools, there were other directions in which they could move forward. A\hat had been said by Princi- inu xvooerts ana iur. J. li.. levies seemed to him weh worthy of consideration. The Committee did not spend a penny too much on education- but it was their duty to watch the expenditure carefully and use it to the best advantage, avoiding the directions in which mistakes had been made. They must be prepared to spend more money on education. The over- lapping in the work of the colleges also re quired careful consideration. Higher education was equally part of the Com- mittee s work. They spoke of the ladder of education from the elementary schools to the University. It was not a continuous ladder, and it was necessary to remove the breaks. What was wanted was not to give children a finish in the county school, hut to ailow them to remain in the county schools long enough to derive full benefit and to lay a good foundation. The scope of inquiry for the committee to be appointed should be as wide as possible. (Hear. hear). Mr. C. M. Williams said he had not. com- plained of the expenditure on education but wanted to be assured that good value was obtained. The Cham man You also said that we are going back to the old regime. We do not want to go back,, but to look forward. Mr. Lima Jones agreed that scholarships should be awarded other than on the re- sults of cramming in preparing for exam- inations. Replying to the discussion, Mr Wilkin son said he was flattered bv the way his proposition had been received though Mr J H. Davies and tha Principal had taken him in a flymg machine to heights which he never ventured to contemplate. He did not pretend to be an educatifomst, but hoped he was practical. He believed that the inquiries to be made bv the Committee would be of the greatest value to the rising generation. The proposition was unanimously agreed to and the following were appointed on the Committee:—The Chairman, Principal Roberts, the Rev. Williams and Dr. Rees Cardigan • the Revs. T. A. Thomas. Llandyssul: Evan Evans, Lampeter; Messrs. John Rees, Pontrhydfendigaid; R.
MYDROILYN. I HOMECOMING.—Captain Jonathan Evans, Glendower, Mydroilyn, now engaged as an Admiralty pilot, was home here on a few days leave lately. He re- turned to his sphere of labours on Monday morning. THE HAY HARVEST. -Farmers have been exceptionally busy with the hay. The weather has at last become ideal. Most I of the crops are heavy and most places have had it in in a very fine condition to the rickyards this year. Y.M.C.A.—This week the children of the Mydroilyn Congregational Sunday School are occupied in selling tickets, etc., for the Y.M.C.A. Last winter a scheme was drawn out to make weekly collections. This went on very successfully for about four months, when most of the subscribers stopped their contributions. This was to be greatly regretted, particularly in a thriving and wealthy district like Inrly in a thriving and wealth district like this. Most of our young lads have been conditionally exempted by the tribunals, and everything goes on exactly as before. To help others in need is to be alwavs re- garded as a privilege, and everyone should I nobly do his own share honourably. VISITORS.—A few visitors have made their appearance in the district. Among them is Mrs. Anne Jones, of Cwmbran, I near Newport. Mon. This lady is over I eighty years of age and looks remarkably well. She is a native of this district and spent most of her life at Esgerwenfach, in this parish.
I Notes from Aberayron. (By J.M.H.) DE MORTLTIS. Mr. William Hamilton Evaus, son of Mrs Evans" Crown", late matron of the Aberayron Workhouse, and of the late Mr. Griffith Evans, Cilfforch, master of the Workhouse, died on Friday morning May 21st, at the age of twenty-eight years. He wag educated at King's College, London, and started on a commercial career, latterly becoming the representative of the firm of Maypole. His health became im- paired and he entered into the Brompton Hospital for Pulmonary Diseases and Frimley Sanatorium, and for a time he seemed to obtain a mastery in the attack. For three years since he returned home he maintained a strenuous resi'stence to the encroachments of the malady, con- stantly planning new methods against fresh inroads. No one fought a more courageous fight against the common enemy. Nor did anyone more heroically face the uttermost inevitable. He was a young man of unusually fine instincts and attainments. He was intellectual and in- telligent, with a breadth_of understanding and a keenness of insight which it is not given to every one to possess and to develop. During the long period when one after the other of his projects failed he maintained his self-discipline, his serenity, and his geniality. A large number of friends are sorrowing with his bereaved mother and sister. The devotion and ser- vice of his friend. Mr. Jack Davies can- not be set out in words. Mr. John Rees, of Glasgow House, draper, died suddenly on Thursday morning, at the age of sixty-two. He was the only son of the late Mr. Evan Rees, Glanfaen, ,ii,d had married the eldest daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs J. T. Evans who surr^veg him. Mrs. Evans was a sister of the late Mr. Morgan Evans. J.P., Oakford. There are also two sons, viz., the Rev. J. Seymour Rees, Congregational minister, Cefncoedcymer, and Mr. Ieuan Rees. He was engaged in the usual routine of his daily duties on Wednesday, but in the J..L i.- V s was an apopletic seizure which ended in death without his having recovered consciousness. His early educa- tion was of a better type than that usually bestowed upon the boys of his days. He had always, from time to time, been a. competitior as essay writer in local eistedd- todau and had won many prizes. He must have written tomes of foolscap. It is not then a surprise that he should in recent years become a local journalist as a I>ast,n,e. H,indcfLti^bfe ta his r ±'y tl;,s resP«ct, and no event, however trivial, escaped him.

Yn Amser Rhyfel. BRYN A BRO. Mor lan, ac amlwg, wedi'r gwlaw, Y gwelaf draw y bryniau, A'r haul yn gwisgo'u liethrau gwyrdd, A myrdd o heirdd belydrau; A hwythau'r wyn, a'r defaid man, Gan swynol gan yr adar, Yn ddifyr iawn, ar fryn a phant, A branciant yn chwareugar. Ond O! na chawn i fyn'd am dro, I fro tuliwnt i'r bryniau, Lie treuliais hyfryd bore f'oes, Heb nemawr loes, na chroesau: Mae yno feusydd gwyrddion teg, A gloewdeg ffrwythlon ddolydd, A nentydd glan yn myn'd i gyd, Yn unfryd i'r afonydd. Fy Rheidol hen, a'r Ystwyth sydd Bob dydd fel pe'n cystadlu, Pa un fydd gynta'n ngwely'r lli, A'r gyntaf un i godi! Cof am yr hen afonydd hyn, Y moelfryn a'r ddol hyfryd, Gwyd ynof awvdd am gael bedd Ger annedd hoff fy mebyd. Gwalia, EBWARD JENKINS. Llandrindod Wells, Gorffenaf, 1916. Yn ychwanegol at y trafferthion ynglyn a'r Iwerddon a chwestiwn y gofrestr ethol- iadol a llu o drafferthion eraill, gorchfyg- wyd y Llywodraeth yr wythnos ddiweddaf gan yr Aelodau Oymreig mewn Pwyllgor o Dy'r Cyffredin ar y cwestiwn o gychwyn tri sefydliad man-ddaliadol. Yn ol y mesur fwriadwyd gan y Llywodraeth amcenid trefnu chwe mil o erwau er rhoddi. bywioli- aeth amaethyddol i'r milwyr a'r morwyr ddychwelant wedi'r rhyfel. Cynygiwyd gwelliant gan Mr E. T. John i osod un o'r sefydliadau hyn yn cynhwys dwy fil o erwau yng Nghymru. Oaf odd j gwelliant fwyaf- rif o 51 yn erbyn 46 ac yn naturiol llanwyd yr Aelodau Cymreig a brwdfrydedd gan eu Uwyddiant. Dyna'r gorchfygiad cyntaf i'r Llywodraeth wedi dechreu'r rhyfel; ond nid oedd yn bwysig canys daw'r mesur o flaen y Ty ar ei. drydedd ddarlleniad, ac os na dderbyn y Llywodraeth y gwelliant nid oes llawer o obaith iddo. Feallai. nad yw'n ddigon hysbys fod llwyddiant y mud- iad yn ddyledus i gyffro Cymdeithas a elwir yn South Wales Garden Cities and Town Planning Association." Siaradodd Mr. Haydn Jones a Mr Ellis Davies yn rymus dros driniaeth neillduol i Gymru a theilynga'u golygiadau barch ac ymddiriedaeth. Nid ydynt mor ddieithr i gyflwr ac anghenion y wlad a Mr. E. T. John, er fod ei enw mor gyhoeddus fel y synir ambell waith sut y bu ar Gymru cyn ei ymduangosiad. Atebwyd hwynt ar ran Bwrdd Amaethvddiaeth gan Mr. Acland a Mr. Charles Bathurst. Tra'n cydym- deimlo a. dymuniad yr Aelodau Cymreig, gwithwynebent y gwelliant am na fedrai'r Bwrdd ymrwymo'n bendant i osod un o'r sefydliadau yng Nghymru heb sicrwydd fod digonedd o dir priodol i'w gael i'r pwrpas. Dadl arall ganddynt oedd fod y rhan fwyaf o dir Oymru yn fan-ddaliadau eisoes ac ofnent yr aflonyddai'r sefydliad newydd ar y deiliadaeth presenol. Er hyny, bydd y Bwrdd yn. barod i ystyried cynygiad o dir pwrpasol. Dywedodd Mr. Bathurst yn mhellach ei fod yn awyddus i weled y sefydliad yng Nhgymru am y rheswm nad oedd un rhan arall o'r Deyrnas wedi dangos cymaint o'r yspryd cydweithiad amaethyddol, yr hyn fyddai nodwedd ar-1 benig o'r mudiad newydd. Os ceir tir priodol, gellir disgwyl yn ddiau am un o'r sefydliadau yng Nghymru. Ar gais Pwyllgor Oynilo y Llywodraeth gwnaed yr wvthnos ddiweddaf yn wythnos arbenig o gynilo er mwyn gwneyd pob wyth- nos yn wythnos o gynilo. Dyfynodd goheb- ydd yn y "Llan" y penillion pwrpa.sol hyn o waith--Huiv-Morus- Yr wy'n clywed mawr gwynfan Am wyr ac am arian, Aeth ffwrdd o;r wi&&~ailan mae'n llydan y llid; Nid oes mo'r lie i ochel Brwdaniaeth nac oerfel, Gan ryfel-ymrafae!-mawr ofid. Dymchwelwch, ac na phechweh, Mewn goleu na dirgelwch, Gweddiweh, chwi gewch degwch, Duw'r heddweh a dry yr hin, I arwain y cenhedLoedd I ofni Brenhin nefoedd, Mae'n rhaid ar dir a dyfroedd, Fod rhai blynyddoedd blin! Difyna benill arall o eiddo Eos Ceiriog, yn gymwys iawn i'r dyddiau enbydus hyn, ac i'r gwr ucheI.geisiol yn yr Almaen:- Mae aflan weithredoedd, Ar for ac ar diroedd, Yn ysu teyrnasoedd laweroedd i lawr; Dialedd Duw'n gervdd Ar ddeiliaid anufudd, Gael llywydd aflonydd yn flaenawr. Dywedodd Canghellydd y Trysorlys fod y rhyfel yn costi chwe' miliwn y dydd. iPriodol felly yw'r a pel am gynildeb, am hunanymwadiad, ac am aberth. Er cym- aint yr aberth ofynir nid yw'n agos tebyg i'r aberth wneir gan filoedd o'n dynion dewraf ar faes y gwaed. P'wysa'r alwad am wyr ac am arian" bob dydd yn fwy at sylw cyhoeddus a theimlir atgasedd cyn- yddol at bob math o foethau a diogi er trosglwyddo holl adnoddau arianol i gyn- orthwyo'r Llywodraeth*
