BOGUS DEGREES. s ————— I 1 To the Editor of THE JOURNAL. SIR,-A few weeks ago I remember reading a glowing account of the honours conferred upon the Rev. W. Thomas, Whitland, by a special reso- lution of the International Society of Literature Science and Art, entitling him to the use of the letters F.S.L. (Loud) after his name. Your correspondent Argus," at the time, clearly explained the value of this particular degree, and the easy manner in which it can be obtained. I happened to read in the School Guvrdian for Saturday last, a leaderette with reference t. the above named Society. The School Guardian says. "Every two or three years a new society springs into existence ostensibly for the promotion of learning. We have just had placed in our hands the papers of the International Society of Litera- ture, Science and Art, and we leave our readers to draw their own conclusions as to its true character from its own prospectus. The entrance fee is only two guineas. Ladies and gentlemen interested in any one or more of the various branches of art, literature, science, music, or education, arc eligible for election as active or honorary fellows, and uave diplomas granted to them with the ricrht of appending the letters F.S.L. (Lond.) to their names. Certificate3 of membership (M.S.L.) are also issued. The hood and gown of the society may be worn by daly qualified fellows, subject to the approval of the council. We need not enter into particulars about the annual subscription. It is sufficient to say that the honours of the society are in one sense cheap, and that persons desirous of appending letters to their names need not experience much difficulty in misleading the public by their pos. session. The society is so anxious to diffuse its honours that it passes special resolutions inviting the members of other societies to allow their names | to be added to their own distinguished roll. Wo f should not have thought it necessary to call attention to this society did we not know that a few years ago many teachers were persuaded to j )in a society of a similar character." Further comment is unnecessary. The public have "Argus" to thank for so readily enlightening them upon the true value of the hood, gown and letters of this society." Yours truly, IVOR."
