Editorial Notes. The meetings of the Tonic Sol-fa Asso- ciation are interesting events in. the musical career of our little country. We owe an incalculable debt to the Tonic Sol-fa system. It awakened in its early days the potential reading abilities of the people, in fact, democratised it, and it is gratifying to observe how gradually the transition to the Old Notation system is made possible by those who have learnt the Tonic Sol-fa steps both in the theory and practice of Music. It must be never- endingly emphasised that the Tonic Sol-fa is not the end, but the means to an end that aims at the more bountiful forms of expression which is in the womb of the Old Notation. There must be no partisan spirit in our attitudes towards the two systems of Notations. In fact, none exist among the leaders of the Tonic Sol-fa movement, and the men who are leaders of the, Tonic Sol-fa Association are among the most ardent advocates of both forms of Notation. We need only mention the names of some of the apostles of the South Wales Branch—Mr. How ells, Porth Mr. Phillip Thomas, Neath; Mr. Tom Price. Merthyr; and Mr. D. Pryse Jones. All these are practical teachers, and are soundly grounded, not"only in the matter of instruction, but also in the methods and processes of inculcation. Mr. R. Lloyd Jones, Cardiff, the President of the year, rightly drew attention to the need of still greater attention to the subject by the Education Authorities of the dis- trict. It is a remarkable fact, where the aptitude to vocalisation is the least as a national characteristic, there we find the best concentration of power and organ-

isation to develop vocal expression. In Scotland and many parts of England, special experts are appointed to teach the right cultivation of the children's voices. It is well known what daily catastrophes go on in respect to boys' voices in our schools. The boys are irrepressible; they will "throat and chest" their notes unless they are properly trained in voice production. Teachers cannot be experts in everything. We have noticed admir- able illustrations of voice training where the expert exists. Those who have been fortunate to hear the Treorchy or Mardy scholboys can appreciate the better way we should like to see more universalised. We find that a Mr. Newton Laycock, Sunderlandj gave a demonstration in voice training to a class of boys at the Association. What is wanted is this kind of demonstration systematically and in a serial form given to the teachers. Barry, one of the most progressive of our Edu- cation Committees, has long ago engaged Mr. W. T. Samuel as voice training and musical expert, and to the infinite benefit of the schools. We would urge the Rhondda to take this matter under its warm consideration, and we feel quite certain that it will not desire to cancel any favourable decision it will make. The Glamorgan County Council has shown this spirit in its Hygiene Lectures, and no doullf, largely due to the initiative of Dr. Morris, since medical men fully realise their value. It is only a medical man can really understand the significant benefits of real training in the principles of Hygiene. Are there no musical men on our Local Education Authorities to render the same stimulating service in the department of Music ? Are we a voice crying in the wilderness? The Rhondda people, we are certain, are quite in accord with the District Council when it decides to go for extended powers for the Tramwav Service. We shall hear of no protesting meetings. The success of the tram service, and the pru- dential conditions of its tenure are such that no narrow-visaged ratepayer can very well carp against. The service has been a great boon to those districts served by it, and it is not only right but fair that the districts in the Urban Area _at pre- sent outside these direct benefits, should come into the ring. The Council aims at a very large measure of Parliamentary powers, and it does seem to us that it might very well ask for a more complete bite of the necessary reforms so urgently expected by all the people. Clydach Vale is that part which has been omitted from the programme. Of course, there may be reasons known best to the Council, and reasons of a strategic nature which accounts for the omission of Clydach Vale. We are quite certain that the omission is not due to any indifference on the part of the Ward members. They are too well known for their alertness of character to accept for us such a reason. It may be the tactics which is described in the classics as (, Festina. leiite I hasten slowly. It is patent that the scheme of widening the approach to Clydach Vale from Tonypandy is a prime factor in any tram scheme designed for Clydach Vale. Engineers on the Council understand this, and possibly this fact has had a dominating consideration in the ultimate end which aims at providing Clydach Vale with the accommodation of a tram service. Possibly, too, strategic- ally, that the delay in the promotion of the scheme may mean a stimulating interval for the Taff Vale Railway Com- pany to reflect on the desirableness of a train motor service to Clydach Vale, and also the wakening up of the Great Wes- tern Company from its selfish supineness p 11 in providing passenger facilities for this most populous area which it has so long ignored and neglected. We think that Mardy and Williamstown thoroughly justify the demand, though Mardy should be reminded that its opposition in the past was not creditable to the intelligent foresight of its opinion in the early fights for a Rhondda tram service. We con- gratulate Councillor Maltby for the pre- sent state of Mardy public opinion. It is further refreshing in the reading of the report of the Monday meeting that the members for Mid-Rhondda have corrected their past oversight in respect to the con- nection of the tram service between Toiiy- pandy and Trealaw. Though the demand is belated, and futile this time because belated, still, it should be made and repeated until realised, A writer in a London paper comments on last week as being a wonderful weels in the history of the country. In a general way the aviation science seems to be going ahead with marvellous suc- cess, and clearly predicts a popularity for aerial travel which now is familiar on solid ground. In fifty years hence our cab-stands will be above us, and we will have to whistle for the aeroplane to come down. This innovation will cheapen road metalling, and police control of traffic will be a lost occupation. It is very good business, therefore, that we are now con- testing landlord pretensions to land values, and that there is for us a pro- vision in the Budget for land raluation for future basis of taxation. This will restrain, no doubt, the landlord claiming aerial rents by the instrument of calcu- lating volume and density of the air dis- turbed by the flights. The landlord has done very well by the foreshore grab, and the enclosure of commons; hut the en- lightenment of the present Budget doubt- less will forestall such new claims by timely legislative restrictions. The press- ing of a Royal button also at West Dean which opened doors and lighted lights i. Canada, will reduce Royal ceremonials to a very simple business. This certainly is an innovation that will have to be duly watched. There is just the possibility of a great subversion of the eclat of Royalty in this scientific ingenuity. It was a wonderful week, too, in the revelation of our political fraternity. The friendly compliments exchanged between Mr. Balfour and Mr. Lloyd George at the London Cymrodorion meeting was a mark- ing period. Such an incident is remark- able, and we are quite safe in expressing that in no other country could such an after-dinner scene occur as two such strenuous political opponents exchanging personal congratulation. Eveii. the cele- brated Mr. Gould, the cartoonist, has touched un the incident in a very pretty way by making the aristocracy express surprise that Arthur," with his connec- tions, was not playing the game by being friendly with that horrid little boy repre- senting Lloyd George. There are other wonderful things locally in the week's history. The Trades and Labour Council of Pentre, for instance, is surprised at Councillor Edward Jones, with his con- nections remaining friendly with that horrid boy." Councillor Walter Wil- liams. It is really very rough on the democrat who is not a class partisan. He shuns the snobbing of the haristocracy," and will refuse admittance into the atmo- sphere which is not for the people and of the people. Mr. Edward Jones, obviously, is too broad-minded for his employers, and he has sold his people's evangelism for a mess of miserable pottage because he lets his humanity transcend the narrow, restricted regulations of a section of his constituency which decrees that he is not to appear on the same platform as another worthy man who happens to lack the special uniform of a particular set of people. It is said that he is flaunting the wishes of his employers. Sad. indeed. He has to do exactly as his employers order him. We thought this kind of tyranny was only possible when the management fraternity were on the stage of electoral public life. But the autocrat is still alive. He has not changed his spots, but his station in the social life. The good old motto, Equality, liberty and fraternity," will not do. Councillor Edward Jones is right in a^earing with anyone whose principles of reform coin- cide with his own. And we hope he will stand up for liberty and defy tyranny. Indeed, the week has been wonderful if in this democratic Rhondda a man must be a serf and slave to his employers.
