Lecturer in Education, Dr. Abel Jones' Important Appointment. Dr. Abel J. Jones, B.Sc., has just been appointed Lecturer in Education at the University College. Cardiff. Mr. Jones, who is a Tonypandy "boy," has had a aingularly successful career at the Uni- versities of Cambridge, Jena, and Wales, having obtained the degrees of B.A. (with First Class Honours), Ph.D., and B.Sc. at the respective Universities. Dr. Jones is the author of Y Llyfraui Elfennol," the prize series published by the Welsh Congregational Union, and has with his brother, the Rev. D. R. Jones, M.A., Bethlehem, Cardiff, edited Cnwedlau Cymru Fu," an adaptation of Welsh tales for school use. DR. ABEL J. JONES. In June last, when he secured First Olass Honours in the Moral Sciences Tripos at the Cambridge University, we wrote of him:—" The career of Mr. Jones has undoubtedly qualified him for one of the highest educational posts the country can offer him. Having had years of ex- perience in practical teaching, coupled with his brilliant academic career, he is thus placed in a position pre-eminently fitting him for the higher positions in the educational world. Not only is he a young man of high accomplishments, but his private life has also been such to win the warmest admiration and emulation of hundreds of other young men in this great Rhondda of ours. Of late years, Wales, in common with England, has devoted too much attention and bestowed too much praise upon men whose talents lie in the direction of athletics, proving in a measure that the mania of muscularity is domineering the minds of young people. Mr. Jones has shined, not at the wrong end,' but in those qualities which fit men and women for the- responsible duties of the strenuous life."
