Obituary. Mr. Roger Rogers, Llwydcoed. THE LATE MR. & MRS. ROGER ROGERS. We regret to announce the death of Mr. Roger Rogers. Llwydcoed, who had served as attendance officer under the now defunct Aberdare School Board for many years, and latterly under the Aberdare Educa- tion Authority. Mr Rogers, who was 81 years of age. had been a deacon of Moriah C'.M. Church, Llwydcoed, of which the Rev. Mar- gam Jones is pastor, for about half a century. The District Cwrdd Misol was incomplete without the presence of the Llwydcoed sage. The Calvinistic Methodist Connexion had no better known or more popular layman in the whole of its South Wales area than "Roger," as he was familiarly known. He was a most genial personality, and a most gen- uine friend. The Corph has in his demise lost a stalwart. It was the I force of his character and his origin- ality that made him such an out- standing personality. Some time ago he was commissioned to deliver a charge to some young preachers who were ordained to the ministry. His very quaint, original and striking re- marks were afterwards published in a denominational periodical. The late Mr. Rogers was first and fore- most a Calvinistic Methodist. He was also a Welshman to the core- Cymro i'r earn as he would have put it. Some three years ago he and his wife celebrated their golden wedding, when they were presented with several valuable gifts as me- mentoes of the occasion. Mrs. Rogers passed away not very Jong afterwards.
Soldier's Wedding. On April 22nd, at Bethel Congre- gational Chapel, Caerphilly, Miss Dinah Evans, headmistress of the Girls' School, Senghenydd, was mar- ried to Sapper H. R. Pugh, R.E., of Towyn Post Office. The bride was attired in a beautiful dress of Wedg- wood ct-.el)e de chene with hat of grey Moofla straw, and was attended by I her cousin, Miss Ceridwen Evans The bride was given away by hei brother (Mr. Emrys Ll. Evans), and the best man was Sergeant J. Trevor Jones, Pioneer Battalion Welsh Re- giment, Porthcawl. After the cere- mony the party proceeded to Barry's Hotel, Cardiff, where the reception was held. The bride is well known in Aberdare, having lived for man years in Oxford Street, before the re- moval of the family to Senghenydd

Ecclesiastical. The Rev. David Egryn Roberts, M.A., formerly Vicar of Miskin, Mountain Ash, was on Saturday afternoon inducted as vicar of the parish of Trevethin, in succession to the Rev. E. Morgan. M.A. The ceremony was conducted by the Rev. Dr. Green, Archdeacon of Mon- mouth, in the presence of a large congregation. An address was de- livered by the Archdeacon prior to the induction ceremony.

Mountain Ash Education Committee. Annual Meeting. On Tuesday, May 2nd. Present: Mrs. T. W. Millar, Messrs. Wm. Davies, G. H. Hall. J.P., Wm. Lam- burn, James Evans, Noah les, George Neighbour, David Refers. T. W. Jones. Bruce Jones. Wm. Millar, Thomas Jones. J.P., Griffith Evans, J. P., with Mr. Alfred Morgan (Director) and Mr. D. H. Thomas (Director's assistant). Mr. D. Rogers was elected chair- man pro. tern. Election of Chairman. Mr. Griffith Evans, vice-chairman, was elected to the chair for the ensu- ing year. Mr. Evans returned thanks and re- marked that he had already served in that capacity for four months ow- ing to the illness of the chairman, Mr Evan Morris. Penrhiwceiber. They were all sorry at the continued ill- health of Mr. Morris, and he pro- posed a vote of thanks to him for his services as chairman. Mr. Thomas Jones seconded, and added that no man was more sorry he was unable to attend than Mr. Morris himself. Mr. Morris had a special fitness for the post of ehair- man, and had a wonderful way of surmounting difficulties. Mr Rogers supported, and trusted Mr. Morris would soon be restored to his usual health. Mr. Morris con- ducted the business with strict im- partiality. Mr. W. Lamburn said he had known the ex-chairman for many years, and he agreed with Mr. Thos. Jones that Mr. Morris possessed great tact in presiding over the com- mittee. Mr. G. H. Hall spoke of visits he had paid to Mr. Morris, who was im- proving and hoped to resume his public duties in a month or so. Mrs. T. W. Millar associated her- self with the complimentary remarks made by previous speakers. Mr. Noah Bowles further sup- ported. The Director was pleased to sup- port the motion. The motion was carried. Election of Vice-Chairman. Mr. D. Rogers moved the appoint- ment of Mr. Bruce Jones as vice- chairman, and Mr. James Evans seconded. Mr. Bruce Jones said he had per- sistently refused office, because he was so busy. He wished to decline again, because it was not fair to the other members who were lower down on the list. Mr. T. W. Jones said it was the wish of the people of Abercynon Ward that Mr. Jones should accept office. Mr. Bruce Jones remarked that it was Mrs. illiams' turn to occupy the vice-chair, and he would be de- lighted to see a lady occupy the office. Several members, including Mrs. Millar and Mr. Noah Bowles, who were on the list, appealed to Mr. Jones to accept office. Mr. T. W. Jones: Mr. Jones has no leg to stand on, now. Mr. W. Millar: So he better sit in the vice-chair. (Laughter.) Mr. Bruce Jones then accepted, and his appointment was agreed to. Empire Day. Lord Meath wrote stating that the Government had now recognised Em pire Day on May 24th. and he asked the Committee to place Union Jacks over all the school buildings on that day. Mr. Bruce Jones moved that the Director be authorised to purchase Union Jacks, to be fixed on the schools. In the past they had re- garded this movement as something akin to Jingoism. By to-day we had altered our minds. NothingJ was better than for the rising generation to be inspired by patriotic motives. Mr. T. W. Jones seconded. Mr. D. Rogers Why not have the Red Dragon flag as well 1 The Director: Welshman as Welshmen assert their patriotism on St. David's Day. Mr. Jones' motion was agreed to, also that a suitable programme be ar- ranged for the morning, and a half- holiday granted in the afternoon. I St. David's Day. Mr. D. Rogers moved that the flag of the Red Dragon be hoisted over ,the schools next St. David's Day. Mr. T. W. Jones seconded, and the mot-it was agreed to. Cadet Corps. The Director reported that lie was in receipt of a letter from the Lord Mayor of London concerning the or- ganisation of a Cadet Corps. A con- ference was held at the Mansion House last Friday. He consulted the chairman, and they agreed that it would be better not to attend, without first consulting the com- mittee. The scheme was intended for boys 14-18. and also a junior one, 12-14. Mr. Bruce Jones suggested that the Director report on the matter. They might be able to incorporate something of the kind in the school curriculum. Mr. W. Lamburn And we might get copies of the report of tbo confer- ence. This was agreed to. Resignations. Miss L. D. Lewis, f'aegarw Girls' School, and Miss S. Annie Richard- 1 son, certificated teacher. To he Prosecuted. 1 Miss Grant, headmistress of Mis- lcin School, wrote that her school i had been broken into by schoolboys, and several articles stolen. They had broken in through a window, which was not fastened. It was resolved to prosecute the boys. School and-Dog Show. Permission was given the Penrhiw- ceiber Canine Society to held a dog show in Pengeulan School during the Whitsun Holidays. School Gardens. The committee sanctioned the ex- penditure of £10 to cultivate a large piece of ground attached to York St. School. Mr. G.. H. Hall remarked that it would be a good thing if a piece of ground were given every school for cultivation. County School. The Director said he was in receipt of a report from the County School concerning student teachers. The progress of all was satisfactory and the conduct good. School Collections. Sir Owen Thomas, who has inter- ested himself in a scheme for the raising of funds for the benefit of Welsh soldiers and sailors, wrote to the committee concerning a letter which he had addressed to the schools, asking them to make a col- lection towards the Fund. Sir Owen hoped the committee would suspend any rule they might have prohibiting collections in schools. Mr. Rogers said he attended a con- ference held at Cardiff, when the scheme was discussed. Mr. Bruce Jones: There was some division of opinion there, was there not? Director: Yes, concerning the national committee. The Director said he happened to know that some schools were making weekly collections towards the pur- pose, and he would like to receive the instructions of the committee. Mr. G. H. Hall moved that the col- lections be stopped until such time the committee granted permission. No collections should have taken place without the consent of the committee. There seemed to be a great deal of misunderstanding alto- gether concerning Sir Owen Thomas' scheme. Mr. W. Davies seconded, and the motion was agreed to. Complaint. A complaint from Mr. John Pros- ser concerning noises in Duffryn School playground during the even- ings, was referred to the Director. Mr. Lamburn observed that big lads entered the playground. Rev. George Neighbour And using very bad lahguage. Mr. D. Rogers: I am sorry the morals of Mountain Ash are in such a state. Mr. Bruce Jones: And that our education is not having much effect. Mr. Lamburn: We haven't a nice Park as you have at Abercynon. Teacher Conscientious Objector. Question of His Re-engagement. The Director reported that Mr. J. J. Beckerlegge, a certificated teacher in the employ of the committee, who was fined 40s. for an offence under the Military Service Act, had been before the Medical Board. He had been put in a class too low to be taken for the Army, and had been set free by the authorities for the present. Before allowing him to. resume his duties, he would like to know the views of the committee. Mr. Hall What Class was he put in 1 Mr. Noah Bowles: Class 4. Mr. Bowles moved that Mr Becker- legge be given back his work. He could not see why there should be any hesitation about it. Mr. Millar said he felt very reluct- ant to express an opinion on the matter. He was afraid that the chil- dren would have lost their respect for the teacher. They all knew what effect such a thing had on the minds of children. The Director remarked that he had baken the matter up with the Board of Education. He had explained the circumstances to them, but no reply had as yet been received. Mr. Bruce Jones said he was in a bit of a quandary. His opinion was that if a person would not take up arms for the defence of his country, he was not fit to have food or a living in this country, and he ought to be ousted from the land. Rev. Geo. Neighbour: If you give permission for people to leave the country there would be something in that argument, but to confine men here and starve them means barbar- ism. Mr. Bruce Jones I would not con- fine them here. Rev. Geo. Neighbour: Well, they are confined here. Mr. G. H. Hall, supporting Mr. Bowles. said that Mr. Beckerlegge was a man respected by all. Mr. Bruce Jones: I cannot respect him. Mr. O. H. Hall: That is a matter of opinion. This man has followed the dictates of his conscience, and for that reason we should not show any vindictiveness. We ought to al- low him to go back to his post. That is my attitude, and that should be the attitude of the committee. Mr. T. W. Jones moved that the question be deferred pending the re- ply of the Board of Education. Mr. W. Lamburn seconded, adding that if the committee re-appointed him now, they might have to rescind the resolution if the Board of Educa- tion's reply was not favourable. Mr. Thomas Jones also supported this view, being the safer course to pursue. Mr. Noah Bowles said he had every respect for a man who had the cour- age of his convictions, and who was prepared to suffer for them. He was surprised that the Director had brought this matter forward in pub- lic. The practice was to deal with questions of teachers' characters in committee. He hoped the Press would leave out the discussion. Chairman: His character has not been attacked. Rev. Geo. Neighbour said that even granting the young man had done something wrong, it was their duty to reclaim the fallen and help him to his feet. Was it humane and wise to brand a man for life, even if he was guilty of something dreadful? If this committee were going to throw the young man adrift, then so much the worse for the committee. Mr. Lamburn: Vote, vote. Mr. Rogers Cannot we agree to defer this matter until we receive the reply of the Board of Education? Mr. G. H. Hall: If we appoint him it will be subject to the consent of the Board of Education. Mr. Bowles It is unthinkable that the Board of Education would act otherwise than grant the appoint-' ment. Mr. W. Millar: In the best inter- ests of the young man Mr. Bowles should withdraw his motion. Mr. Thomas Jones agreed, and ex- pressed his fear that if Mr. Bowles would press his motion he would lose votes. He had every respect for the young man, and believed he was a thorough Christian. Mr. Bowles In deference to my colleagues I withdraw my motion. 0 It was then agreed that the matter would be deferred pending the reply of the Board of Education. Replying to a remark made by Mr Bowles the Director said that this case was already public property. Mr. Beckerlegge had been before the magistrates at Aberdare, and had been fined, and the case had been re- ported in all the papers. It was very different from cases of discipline of teachers, where nothing was known to the public, and where secrecy was desirable. There was nothing wrong in bringing the present case before the open committee. [A few members expressed a wish to omit-the above discussion from the report of the Education Commit- tee. We decline to do so. This is a matter of great public inter- est, and quite different from ques- tions of legal negotiations, particu- lars of tenders, etc., which it may be impolitic to publish. For whose benefit was the report of the dis- cussion to be censored ? Not for Mr. Beckerlegge's, surely. If sup- pression was necessary, the proper time was when his case was heard at Aberdare Police Court. He has committed no offence since.]
The great man who lives too long be- comes, says an ancient writer, a bad inall. If he does not attain martyrdom the sins of his followers enter into him.
i Scraps. BY THE SCRIBE. Noticing at an Aberdare place ol worship the appliances for holding in- dividual communion cups somectr asked the Rev. Elvet Lewis, "Are tixese I any aids to salvation?" "Perhaps not,' was Elvet's reply, "but they are aide le sanitation." Readers of the Sunday communique in the window of the Aberdare Post Office complain that they have not only to bring their glasses but their step-- ladders also. Just now Shakespeare, the cuckoo.. and the married men are very much to the fore. An apt and timely quotation would be that couplet. from "Love's Labour Lost": "The cuckoo then, on every tree 1 Mocks married men." 1 Despite Tarmac our mJiD roads are at dusty as ever. But Tarmac's beneficial results are nullified because the 6treete never get a wetting—except when the heavens weep. When will our sprayer? wake from their winter sleep? Last Sunday the Rev. T. M. Jeffreys appeared in the pulpit of Tabernacle, Aberdare, in the uniform of the Volun- teer Training Corps. It was on the occasion of a V.T.C. church parade. This is not the first time for the occupant of an Aberdare pulpit to de- liver his message in a garb other than that of a civilian. The last time the Rev. (Private) A. Jenkins, Pencoed, filled the pulpit of his brother, Rev. J. L. Jenkins, at Trinity he wore the uniform of the | R.A.M.C. I j Will the popularity of the Minister of j Munitions survive this war ? Some de- clare that the recent onslaughts on the little Welshman will finish him off politically. But I have my doots, as the Caledonian would say. The man of "push and go" has been in many a scrape before, and like the proverbial hero of a hundred fights has always come out without a scratch.
