Financial Provisions Unsatisfactory. The Education Budget. The monthly meeting of the Rhondda Education Committee was held at the Council Chamber, Pentre, on Friday, Dr. W. E. Thomas presiding. Other members present were Mrs. Florence Nicholas, Councillors Tom Evans, L. P. Griffiths W. H. Morgan, Walter Williams, W. P. Thomas, Thos. Thomas, Dd. Smith, J. D. Leonard Llewelyn, D. R. Jones, Dd, Williams, W. T. Jones, D, C, Evans, Da.nl. Evans, Tom Harries, Tom George, R. S. fxriffiths, Lewis Hopkins, Griffith Evans, H. E. Maltbv, W. D. Wight, and Ben Davies, together with the Clerk (Mr. W. P. Nicholas), the Director (Mr. T. W Berry), and the Architect (Mr. Jacob Rees), FE R. iN, D A L, E, SECONDARY SCHOOL REPORT. The Director reported having received the annual report of the Ferndale Secon- dary School, together with certain recom- mendations of H.M. Inspectors. The Director said that the report consisted of 20 pages, and was the best report of any school he had ever seen in his life (hear, hear). The Chairman moved that the report should be referred to the managers" of the school. This, the Chairman ex- plained by stating there was a resolution constituting the members of the Educa- tion Committee managers of the Fern- dale Secondary School. The motion was adopted. PANDY SQUARE FOUNTAIN. Mr. T. Ayton Jones, secretary of the Archibald Hood Memorial Committee, I stated that it was, the intention of the Committee to unveil the fountain on I Pandy Square on the 21st of this month, and asking that the children of the Llwynypia School be granted a half- holiday on the occasion, so as to partici- pate in the function. The application was acceded to, and on the motion of Mr. J. D. Williams, it was urged that the teachers of the school should be present to take charge of the children during the proceedings. DEVOLUTION OF POWERS. The Clerk laid before the Committee the terms of the powers delegated to the Rhondda Council by the Glamorgan County Council in regard to Secondary Education and Evening Schools, in the Rhondda. The terms were published in our columns a fortnight ago. Councillor Tom Evans: I understand that if this works properly, there will be no objection to its continuing over the twelve months mentioned in the terms. Councillor Eld. Jones: Does; this in- clude the whole scheme? The Chairman No; only the Evening Schools. Councillor R. S. Griffiths questioned whether they were sufficiently posted in the terms to come to a decision that day. The Chairman said there was only one clause upon which more explanation was needed, namely, Clause D, which provides that In the month of September an account shall be made out of the net cost to the rates of the Eivening Classes con- ducted in the residue of the County during the session, including a proper proportion of the salaries of Organisers, Visiting Teachers and Inspectors em- ployed in connection with them by the County Education Committee, and there shall be paid before the 29th of that month by the County Council to, the Rhondda Urban District Council [subject to the indemnity contained in para- graph (a)] such a proportion of the said net cost as the assessable value of the Rhondda District bears: to the assessable value of the rest of the Administrative County according to the County Rate Basis in force at that time. after deduct- mg the E' above advances." r*i • said that lie had seen the Chairman ol the Glamorgan Education Committee, who stated that the figures were very favourable to the Rhondda, but before he (Mjr. Nicholas) would advise them to accept it, lie would like to see how the figures worked out, That was the weak spot about it. He, personally saw no difficulty in the principle. It meant that the Rhondda was to be kept out of calculation altogether as to the cost of the Evening Schools, but that it was to receive from the County such a proportion of the net cost as the assess- able value of the Rhondda, bore to that of the rest of the County. The Chairman: It means that the Rhondda will only have two-fifths of what Ifi. sp<ii:i, 121 districts outside of the Rhondda—which has nothing to do with +r,^u-1C]],1.or To™ Harries: Supposing that m the residue of the County the cost of the Evening Schools means a., two- penny rate, and in the Rhondda a three- halfpenny rate; would not that be to our advantage ? The Clerk: I don't see that that is quite germane to the point. I cannot get over the illustration given by the doctor. Assuming that the total cost of education in the parts of the County than the Rhondda comes to £ 100,000, two-fifths of that must be lesser than that amount would be plus the cost of education in the Rhondda. That is what I cannot understand. Councillor D. Smith: We are not clear with regalrd to this at all. I think it would be better if the Clerk had an inter- view with the Clerk of the County Council to make this paragraph distinct. It only requires to be put into plainer language. Councillor R. S. Griffiths: The amount spent in districts outside of the Rhondda is the estimate upon which is based the sum to be spent in the Rhondda. The Clerk: The Chairman of the Edu- cation Committee told me that that is what is meant, and that we would be better off. They put it that they will pay one-fifth of that cost to the Rhondda, but why our cost should be left out I don't know. The Chairman: We can spend £ 5,000, but that must not be taken into account at all. I don't think it is a satisfactory basis to go on. Councillor R. S. Griffiths: It seems to me that they have conceived this as a safeguard to the residue of the County in granting us this payment. They say to themselves, We have this check upon the Rhondda Council, and they cannot spend recklessly, as they can only spend the same rated as you (the residue of the County) spend." I do not know whether there is not some substantial ground for taking up this attitude. Supposing this was given to Mountain Ash or Ponty- pridd, or any other pa,rt of the residue of the County, would we sit still while they spent twice as much on education in their area as we do? The ratio at which we should be paid is the ratio at which this sort of education costs the County in the areas outside the Rhondda. It is conceived as a safeguard against our running wild. The Chairman Supposing that such is the case: If we spend t3,00,01 and the rest of the County spends a similar pro- portion, so that one-fifth comegsto £ 1,500 there we have a deficit of £ 1,500. Where does that come from? Councillor R. S. Griffiths: Supposing that the residue of the County spends a penny rate upon this education, and we spend 2d., what we are going to get back from the County is a penny. If we care to spend 2d., we must do it out of our own pockets. Can we say that we should have preferential treatment? The Chairman On the other hand, we ought to be safeguarded in some way. Councillor Griffiths: We get the average given to outside Authorities. ° The Clerk: I don't see why, in order to get at the proportion we are entitled to, the Rhondda penny should not be brought in. Councillor Griffiths: Rhondda's penny should be brought in, but it would not make any difference to the average. Sup- posing you had an equal figure, and divide to get at your average by a higher figure, you are not any better. The Chairman: If we discuss it until to-morrow morning we shall not be any better off. Eventually, it was resolved that the Clerk should see Mr. Franklen, Clerk of the County Council, to get an explana- tion of the clause in Question. SCHOOL ATTENDANCES. The Director reported that the school attendances this year was 2 per cent. higher than last year, which would mean an increase of £ 1,200 in grants. Miss Nellie Davies, Ferndale, was ap- pointed cookery teacher for the Mid- Rhondda district. There were two other candidate43 on the short list, but these had obtained positions elsewhere in the meantime. RiiO. SCHOOL —OBJECTION TO EXTENSION. The Special School Management Com- mittee reported having considered the notice of the intention of the trustees of the Tonypandy Roman Catholic School to enlarge the existing: premises so as to provide additional accommodation for about 200 children, together with the statement submitted by the Director showing the number of children at pre- sent attending the schools of several parts of the district from which they attended. The Committee recommended that the Authority object to the proposal to pro- vide additional accommodation for 200, on the ground that the proposed exten- sion would be in excess of the require- ments of the district in the vicinity of the school, and that the Committee take steps to lodge the objection of the Authority accordingly. TEACHERS' REGULATIONS. The Committee also reported having considered the following regulations dis- cussed at the recent conference with the representatives of the certificated teachers, namely:—No. 65 (e) Absence of teachers through illness. Nos. 35 to 39: Corporal punishment. Appendix IV. Scale of salaries of head-teachers. It was recom-

The Clerk reported that, in accordance with the request of the Education Com- mittee, Mr. William Abraham, M.P., had asked a question in the House of Com- mons, with reference to the preferential treatment given to candidates for admis- sion into Portsmouth Day Training Col- lege on account of the nationality If the applicants, and read the reply given by the President of the Board of Education to the effect that he had no information as to the case referred to, but that if an appeal were made to the Board, full en- quiry would be made as to whether the action of the Training College authorities was reasonable, and that the Board allowed a preference to be given to can- didates coming from particular areas, providing adequate cause was shown for the preference. It was resolved that the facts be placed before the Board of Education accord- ingfy-
