Bettws-y-Coed School Dispute. THE HEADMASTER'S DEFENCE. A further meeting was held at the Girls' School, Bettws-y-Coed, on Friday evening, to consider what steps, if any, should be taken regarding the recent action of the Carnarvonshire Education Com- mittee in dismissing Mr W. H. Roland from his position as head master of the Boys' School, which he had held for 17 years. The meeting was presided over by Mr. J. W. B. Corn, and there was a full attendance. Speeches were delivered by several gentlemen, all condemning the action of the Committee. Some of the speakers suggested that extreme measures be taken, and that they as parents should withdraw their children from the school. At the close of the speeches the following resolution was proposed by Mr. W. E. Jones, Tan Lan :— That we, as ratepayers and parents at Bettws- y-Coed, in public meeting assembled, being dis- satisfied with the manner in which Mr. Roland's case has been treated by the Carnarvonshire Education Committee, hereby resolve to do all in our power to see that the whole circumstances of the case are thoroughly investigated." This was seconded by Mr. Plummer, and carried unanimously. A rider was added by Mr. John Jones, Ty'ny- merddyn, and seconded by Mr. John Jones, Green Bank- That a petition be drawn up and sent to the Education Committee following the resolu- tion."
