EMPIRE Day was observed in a fitting manner in most of the towns and villages of Flintshire, and especially at Mold and Flint. It is only a few years since the idea of Empire Day was first mooted, and the extent to which the movement has spread is very gratifying. — :0:— THE celebrations at Mold and Flint were on a larger scale than at other places, and were admirably organised and carried out; and at both towns remarkable enthusiasm waa shown. THE announcement that A (Mold) Com- pany 5th Battalion Royal Welch Fusiliers has attained full strength, which was made in our columns last week, has been received with much pleasure locally. Keen and in- creasing interest is being taken in the Ter- ritorial movement in Mold, and the smart bearing of A Company last Sunday was highly praised on all hands. -:0:- The list of presidents for the Bangor Na- tional Eisteddfod has now been completed as follows :—Tuesday.—Morning, Mr. Wil- liam Jones, M.P.; afternoon, Lord Howard de Walden; evening concert, Mr. John Hinds, M.P. Wednesday.—Mr. W. Llewe- lyn Williams, K.C., M.P. Lord Moetyn, and Mr. E. T. John, M.P. Thursday.— Lord PenrFiyn; Mr. Lloyd George, M.P.; and Mr D. Lleufer Thomas. Friday.—The Bishop of Bangor; Mr. J. Herbert Lewis, M.P., and Sir J. Prichard Jones. Saturday.— Evening concert, Mr. R. J. Williams (Mayor of Bangor). — :o :— MANY points of interest are contained in the report of Mr J. Bevan Evans, Director of Education for Flintshire, on the evening schools for the 1913-14 session. It is pleas- ing to see that there was an increase in the number of students, there being 4568, as compared with 4467 during the previous session. At the same time, one would like to see even greater interest shown in these useful classes. Perhaps the greatest hind- rance to the full success of evening classes generally in the past has been the delusion that a child's education is completed when it leaves the day school; but that spirit is happily passing away, and educational ad- vantages are now better appreciated. — :o :— ONE notable feature mentioned by the Director in his report is the increasing number of students in the literary and com- mercial classes, this upward tendency hav- ing been observed for two or three years. This is all to the good, because in these days of strenuous competition those who take up commercial work must be well equipped. OPENI. J*. V
