Testimonial to the Bey Professoi 1). E. Jones, M.A., Presbyterian College, Carmarthen. DEAR SIR,-The Rev Professor D. E. Jones, M.A., having just completed twenty- five years' service at the Presbyterian College, Carmarthen, his many friends think that the occasion furnishes a fitting oppor- tunity for presenting him with some tangible token of their appreciation of the valuable services he has rendered to the public in various ways. Ever since Professor Jones became resident in Carmarthen, he has been foremost in the advocacy of all movements which have tended to progress in the town and county, and in the country generally. In the sphere of Elementary and Secondary Education his service has been most con- spicuous and effective. He was for years one of the most useful members of the Car- marthen School Board, and after the Welsh Intermediate Education Act of 1899 came into operation, he threw himself heart and soul into the work of Secondary Education as a member of the Joint Education Com- mittee, which framed the scheme of manage- ment of Intermediate Education in the County, of the County Governing Body, of the Technical Education Committee, and of the body of Local Managers for the Carmar- then District, he has been most assiduous in his efforts to promote the interests of our County Schools. As a member of the Car- marthenshire County Council (of which he has been chairman) and of other public bodies, his sagacity, his unwearied attention to public business, and the thoroughness with which he discharges his public work are well known to all who are acquainted with him. In his capacity as professor at the Pres byterian College, he has done excellent work in the education of ministers of all denom- inations. We venture, therefore, to think that work of such a character, performed so quietly and unobtrusively, calls for some public recognition. « We should feel greatly obliged if all friends interested in the matter would kindly send their contributions either to the Hon. Treasurers or Secretaries. We are, Sir Yours faithfully, D J THOMAS, ) H SE0> GEOKGE PHILLIPS, j
