Editorial Notes. The conference between the Education Authority and the teachers last Friday was an admirable innovation. It was no stately, frigid deputation form of proce- dure, but an out-and-out exchange of views between the administration and the Irepre- sentatives of the school staffs. "The burden of the conference was the revised set of regulations issued by the Authority for the government of the schools. That it is im- possible to do without regulations is ad- mitted. Such a large organisation as the machinery for the education of 30,000 children, with hundreds of teachers and other officials, can be smoothly worked without, is inconceivable. In fact, reason- ableness admits^ that they are a necessary evil, but the spirit in which they are con- ceived is everything. If they are drafted in the spirit of detection and mistrust, then their authority as a guidance will be a constant feeling of grudging opposition. No one lives the better because he has a minute code of regulations to direct his life. It is the letter that killeth, but the spirit giveth life. The -Great Master reduced the laws of conduct into the smallest possible compass, while the Pharisees developed a never satisfied demand and thirst for laws upon lawlS. The decalogue was compressed by the Naza- rene, but Jewish hypocrites multiplied it to interminable length. Perfection of conduct can never be achieved by any measure of codification unless the springs of action are sound and healthy. The eon- ierence_ was successful, through the excel- lent spirit displayed, in shearing the sus- picious clothing which appeared and was thought to infect some of the clauses. That there was no such design in their origin was made obvious by the attitude of give-and-take which permeated the pro- ceedings, The wish is general that such conferences, by reason of the experience taught by this one, will become less and less difficult of arrangement. -+- The Welsh Pageant is promising a most successful1 issue if the weather will only kindly smile upon it. This week is pre- paratory and a rehearsing period, though the children have cheered and cheered the eel various items of the pageantry with loud, honest and sincere approval. The way in which the schools have utilised these living historical pictures to stimulate the latent intellectuality of the scholars has been surprising and distinctly gratifying. Very few short of 100;000 school children will have witnessed the pageantry before the week is over. We have had the pleasure of viewing some of the preliminaries, and our conviction is unalterably an opinion that this Pageant is one of colossal dimen- sions. Welsh history will be given a true incentive in the aspiration of all who can afford a visit during any day in the next two weeks to the grounds of Sophia Gardens. It is not a local Pageant, like Promoted in many districts in /efrTif i IH, .truly a National Wales, and in its many episodes it will unearth and make more generally known a great deal of history which was but little realised. We know that materials exist in the masses;, but the labourers in the faculty have been few; but with the r' stirring of the imaginations of thousands of the youth by this National Pageant, we feel sure in the anticipation that the next twenty years will produce many Welsh historians, and that the University Honours degree in History will have a fillip which will brush away much of the mental confusion which has disturbed in the past the Welsh history student. We urge, therefore, every Cymro not to miso the treat, and we recommend our Saxon friends who have thrown their lot with us to avail themselves of the sight as one of the most educative opportunities which have come within their reach, and which, by the very burdensome financial con- siderations of the pageantry, cannot be repeated for many years to come. At last the Free Church Council is becoming an organisation representative of the Free Churchee of this district. The Baptist Denominational Churches have been welcomed into the circle, and that right sincerely. We have always sym- pathised with the reasons that explained their past difficulty of fusion. It was a religious test which the traditions and principles of the Welsh Baptists could not without sacrifice and violation of vitality disregard. We shall not canvass the old contention, but we rejoice in the recorded fact that unity has been achieved. Nov? we trust that the Free Churches of Wales will follow the practice of each denomina- tion, and make a Free Church Council Wales an accomplished fact. It is tmi^ that it should form a, national organisation for the Principality, and draw its insP:ir* tion, force and power from the tradition of Welsh Nonconformity.
