The education rate in Denbighshire has not fluctuated much since. the appointed da.y. It charted sit 1s; it was reduced to lid, and, tfuen, to 10d. It is now Is again. The reason for the present increase is partially due to the ilæreare in attendance. That, in itself, ac- counts for £1258. lif the attendance had been maintained—and parents of children should take the fact to heart-—'the Education Commit- tee could have done with an additional half- penny rate for the current half-year. The cammiitbee has. staffed its schools well, and piven an education as efficient as the most ad- vanced EngLisih Boroughs. But there are some people who believe that Welsh children are be- I ing over-educated; that the sanitary schools I which. aTe provided for them are too expensive and. artistic, although there are scores of schools in Denbighshire which will not com- pete with the etalblee of some of the gentry; iand that the teachers are too well paid. But it cannot be denied that the Denbighshire Education Authority has given the ratepayers good val'ue for their money. The increased ex- penditure has been mainly on roadfe, and to health resorts like Gohvyn Bay good roads are eesential. lit was stated at a meeting of the County Councill that £7000 extra, had been flrpent on the roads to make theont as Mr Ed- ward Williams observed,"nacecourse for motor oars." The Denbigh county authority is not responsible for the introduction of motor oars, nor for tihe disgraceful manneir in which they tear up public tho<ro ughfai es. County Coun- cils are not makens, buit administrators., of the iiaw. Moreover, coiuit^' councillors, are rate- payers, anid as anxious to exercise eoanamy as any other body of men. Public administra- I tion is not so easy a matter as ooaoo seetm to think.
