-r_' Welsh Baptist Union rletings at Treorchy. Evils of Boxing. iIJ Presentation to Dr. Morris. Although the Welsh Baptist Union meetings at Treorchy were opened on Monday evening by the Chancellor of the Exchequer's presidential speech (reported elsewhere), the real business portion did not commence till Tuesday morning, the Rev. T. E. Williams (vice-president) in the chair. Mr. J. P. Gibbon (Maesteg) submitted to the conference a statement of accounts, which showed receipts on revenue account £ 187, in respect of Bangor and Cardiff Colleges C209, and book-room £ 130. It was explained that the last item showed a deficit, the expenditure in connection with the book-room being £ 159. Taking the accounts on the whole, the financial position showed an indebtedness of L177 to the bank, as compared with a deficit of L185 a year ago. With the view of wiping off this debt, it was suggested that a levy of a halfpenny per member should be made. Mr. Evan Owen, J.P., contended that the accounts to some extent were mis- leading, and he suggested that a change should be made in the system, as, for example, an arrangement to make the Union secretary's salary an inclusive one. He also queried how and by whom the money was invested which brought in an income of t209 to the colleges. Mr. Gibbon read the report of the auditor, Mr. Gwilym Treharne, in which it was stated that one-third of the Welsh Churches had not contributed towards the fund during the year. It was explained by the chairman and secretary that the money referred to was derivable from the sum allocated out of the Baptist Twentieth Century Fund for ministerial education. The report having been adopted, The Rev. Principal Edwards, D.D. (Cardiff), gave notice that next year he would move that the money utilised for ministerial education be transferred from the authorities in London to trustees appointed by the Welsh Baptist Union.
