Welsh EducatLnd r?U £ iioas. We are pleased to note that in the list of seven best scholars in the Intermediate Schools of Wales we see the name of Miss Ethel C. Jones, of the Barry County School, wliM has received honourable mention Mis* Jones shares this distinction with a pupil from Aberdare and Swansea. We heartily congratulate the headmaster (Mr Edgar Jones), together with Mr Keen, who iastructed Miss Jones in the subjects, ■ English and French. When it is considered that Miss Jones ranks among the first set en of the 7,000 pupils in Welsh Intermediate Schools, it is a distinction to both this young lady and to the town in which she resides. Miss Jones headed the list among Glamorganshire pupils, and was awarded by the Glamorgan Technical Instruction Com- mittee an exhibition to enable her to pro- j ceed to a higher place of education. English journals devoted to the interests of education speak in terms of high commendation of the Welsh Intermediate School system, and more especially the adoption of most recent methods of teaching modern languages. The question arises whether the success of Welsh scholars in French is not partly due to Wales being a bi-lingul country It is particularly pleasing for the people of Barry to find that it is now reaping what mav be termed the first fruits of an efficient system of secondary education, and we may con- fidently anticipate great things in future from this system. Miss Ethel Jones lives in Wenvoe- terrace, Barry, is 16 years of age, and the daughter of an engineer, and caine to Barry from Newport six years ago. A short period was spent at Romilly-road Girls' School, but on the opening of the County School Miss Jones was transferred there. It is probable I that Miss Jones will stay at the County School and prepare for a degree, and that she will become an intermediate school teacher. She was always a amart scholar.

Will of Mr J. G. Proger, Barry.
