FISHQUARD NATIONAL SCHOOLS A meeting of subscribers to the above school was held in the Infants' Schoolroom on Monday afternoon last, to approve of certain resolutions passed at a prelimin- ary meeting, the chief of which was the election of a joint committee of twelve ,j I persons to manage the three schools jointly. J C. Yorke, Esq., acted as chair- man. There were also present—J. Worthington, Esq., the Revs T. G. Mortimer, D. Parry Davies, and Morgan Griffiths and the majority of the old f new managers. Mr Yorke, who was well received, ex- plained the object of the meeting, and said that it had been convened with a view of bringing about a settlement of the school dispute, which could be accomplished by electing a joint committee of twelve persons to manage the three schools. The Rev D. Parry Davies pointed out that the election would be contrary to the Trust Deeds, which required that the Boys' School was to be managed by five, the Girls' School by ten, and the Infants' School by six persons, and the respon- sibility of violating the Deeds would rest on them. Mr Tombs said that the responsibility would be practically nil. The Chairman, however, with the assistance of the subscribers, selected the following to act as a joint working com- mittee, namely :—Rev D. Parry Davies, Dr Lawton Swete, Messrs J. Worthington, H. Worthington, T. G. Bennett, W. T. S. Tombs, Robert Lewis, W. Williams, Seth Owen, D. Vaughan, Gwynne A. Roberts, W. J. Vaughan, and the Vicar or Curate as chairman. Mr Yorke having agreed to b. 'ome a member, the Rev Morgan Griffith,, asked the senior member (Mr Worthington) to nominate Mr Yorke, and this having been done, it was seconded by Mr Griffiths.- Mr Yorke becomes a member of the Girls' School, but a joint manager of the.4three schools. The above mentioned gentlemen were approved of by the meeting unanimously. The Rev Morgan Griffiths expressed his thanks to Mr Yorke, on behalf of him- self and others, for having come forward to help those interested in the school to settle an unpleasant dispute. Votes of thanks were passed to the Revs J. Rowlands and W. W. Harries for suggesting the meeting. n The meeting terminated with a vote of thanks to the chairman. r'no:l'!FW"f'WW:¡.!it1't:I!1¡r.="
