Mr. John Thomas, B.A., Aberdare, read a paper on Welsh Education after the War." There a danger of the county school, he said, developing into a school simply for the commercial and middle classes. More scholarships ought to be awarded to enable the children of the workers to get the advan- tages of secondary education. He expressed a. hope that nothing would be done to cripple education under the pretence of oconomy. He feared that some of those who were crying the loudest for economy at the present time were those who were during peace time reluctant to pay for educa- tion. He thought it was false economy to do away with night ecbools and the tutorial classes. At tOO close, the members were enter- tamed to tea at the Waveriey Hotel by the Mayor, who was deputised by hie daughter, Miss Dora Lewie.
