The County School Question.

The Last Fruit of Summer


The Last Fruit of Summer has long been gathered, but the beautiful Greek currant is always with us in perfect condition always fresh and sweet, the em- bodiment of Grecian sunshine. It is the principal fruit of the dishes which char- acterise the festive season of Christmas. But why limit its use to one period of the year, or to a few confections? To eat currants is to supply the body with grape sugar, the best of all foods. The currant is the most wonderful flavouring agent and nutrient in the world, and can be used in countless ways, all of which are agreeable to the taste. The following recipe has been taken iiom the little Currant recipe book which your grocer will only be too pleased to give you free of charge on request. Try this to- day. Currant Fritters. 3 eggs, 3 oz. flour, 4 oz. currants, 4 table- spoonfuls boiled rice, sugar to taste, a grate of nutmeg, 1. pint of milk, a pinch of salt, frying fat. METHOD.—Make the batter by mixing the yolks 01 eggs with the flour, and adding milk gradually till a smooth and light bat- ter is obtained. Add the salt to the whites of eggs and whisk stiffly, stir them lightly into the batter, add the currants, rice, nut- meg and enough castor sugar to sweeten. Drop the mixture in spoonfuls into hot fat and fry to a light brown colour. Drain the fritters on a cloth or paper and dredge over with castor sugar. Serve piled up on a hot dish. Sir Watkin Williams Wynn This has been discussed very fully. I say that the minutes of the last meeting, if they were correct, were misleading, and to say they were mis- leading is nearly to say they were incorrect. The Council to-day are discussing that point. We who are here, I venture to say, are representatives of the county of Denbigh equally with the Joint Education Commit- tee. I believe if you go into the constitu- tion of the Joint Education Committee you will find there is a majority—there was at the last election-of that committee of mem- bers who were not elected by the electors of Denbighshire. So this Council, whi.-h has a large majority of elected members, is 2, representative of the feeling of Del1 141- shire as the Education Committee ;5. But we are also told by Mr. Davies, "Lit the scheme be drafted." If this scheme is to go on by all manner of means drop the vote but if it is not to go on, why go io the trouble and expense of drafting it to submit it to this Council when it is well known here that there is a majority against it? I appeal to the strong common sense of the members of the County Council to say whether they approve1 or disapprove of it to-day, and so save useless time and trouble. The fact is that if we let the heme be drafted the thin end of the wedge ill be considered to have got in. Mr. David Lewis There is a very strong feeling in Colwyn Bay on this matter. The Urban District Council have passed a re- solution in favour of the school, and so has onblic meeting. Here it is proposed to pass an opposition resolution before, really, the case has been fully inquired into. If there was a strong feeling to support me I would move a resolution to the effect that the matter be derred until inquiry has been directed into the merits of the case. I propose that the Joint Education Com- mittee should hold an inquiry both at Aber- gele and Colwyn Bay to go into the merits of the case. It is exactly the same as though the children at Wrexham were sent to Gres- ford to school. Mr. D. S. Davies, in reply to a question as to whether the Joint Eduction Commit- tee had held inquiries at Abergele and Col- wvn Bay, as they had been requested to do by the Education Committee of the county, said: We have not been invited to hold an inquiry at either place yet. I wish to point out to Mr. Simon Jones that we are dealing with the question of the intermediate educa- tion, and not the elementary I agree with him with regard to the elementary educa- tion, but the Board of Education have dis- tinctly said that the children cannot remain in the school at Colwyn Bay after the age of 15, and that is the sole reason the whole question has been brought forward now. Mr. G. Cromar, in the course of some re- marks in support of Mr. Mac Nicoll's re- solution, said that the feeling was stronger to-day in opposition to the new Intermediate School at Colwyn Bay than it was three months ago. Mr. D. S. Davies: Is that so? Mr. G. Cromar went on to say that he was not complaining of the work of the Joint Education Committee. On the con- trary, he admired the work they had done, and would give them full credit for it. The Rev. Thomas Lloyd seconded the amendment that the inquiry be held first, before any decision was arrived at, at Abergele and Colwyn Bay. Mr. Lewis sent up the text of his amend- ment, as follows:- Inasmuch as the Council have not full information in the matter this Coun- cil asks the Joint Education Committee to hold an inquiry at Colwyn Bay and Abergele." Nine voted for the amendment, which was defeated. The resolution of Mr. Mac Nicoll was put and carried by an overwhelming majority.
