Llandudno County School. A SCHOLARSHIP GRIEVANCE. The Governors ot the Llandudno County School held a meeting on Friday, Mr T. W. Griffith, chairman, presiding, when Mr E. R. Davies, secretary of education for the county, sent a letter to the effect that the Local Government Board were now disposed to grant longer terms for the repayment of loans for the erection of school buildings, and Mr Davies was asked to repay the loan far the new buildings of the Llandudno County School. The headmaster, Mr J. M. Archer Thom- son, said he thought the time had come when the (governors should approach the trustees of the Richard Owen Scholarship, under which one boy every year is awarded a scholarship tenable at the University Col- lege of North Wales, Bangor, from the town of Llandudno, with a view to a separate examination being held each year for the selection of the boy to receive this scholar- ship. At present, Mr Thomson explained, the scholarship was awarded on the results of the entrance scholarship and exhibition examination of the Univer- sity College, and the unfairness of that to Llandudno boys lay in the fact that should a Llandudno boy qualify for one of the college scholarships, he would not re- ceive it, but would be given the Richard Owen scholarship. Thus Llandudno boys were likely to be deprived of the opportunity of competing for the scholarships open to the other boys of the county. The Richard Owen Scholarship was intended exclusively for Llandudno (boys, who, also, had the right to share in the educational advantages open to the rest of the county, and, in the event of a Llandudno candidate taking such a place in the college examination as to en- title him to one of the college prizes, it should be awarded to him and the Richard Owen exhibition should go to the next Llan- dudno boy of sufficient merit on the list To secure this, an independent examination would appear to be desirable. The governors resolved to aski the Richard Owen trustees, four of whom represent Llan- dudno, two the County Education Commit. tee, and one the College authorities, to arrange for an independent examination in May each year. It was reported that the number of scholars on the register of the county school now was 114, an increase of 25 per cent upon the number last season.
