CORRESPONDENCE 611ZWe do not hold ourselves responsible for the opinions m of our correspondents.] LLANTWIT VARDRE SCHOOL BOARD ELECTION. To the, Editor of the Chronicle. Mr Editor,—Please to allow these few lines to Bop-I Pear IN the CHRONICLE this week. :—In writing the article signed Kate- ?„v^et" I had no intention but the interest of the +1 and to reduce the school rates. When writing ,article I was under the impression to at the u°ol rates had been raised from 4d to 7d in the £ but a. ter that I nnd that it was from 2d to 3d 10 the t, Dot from 4d to 7d in the £ as stated, therefore, a e calculation bearing on that must be wrong. Con- 3eqnently, the progress of the schools must be good, the Board have carried out their work ecouomi- j y> and are satisfactory and worthy of the con- gee of the ratepayers. ^EXPLANATION.—When compARINS THE different onools I have no motive but to find what school was f. t i nearest to be Belf-maifl<;ained. When I said ~yaQtwit Mixed are highly satisfactory, and Graig Treforest Boys not so well." I founded my f *tepient on the Inspector s Report (which can be una) in the report of a meeting of the Llantwit vJ^dre School Board held after the last examination, iu I mean by 18s Per child, was for every child in schools. The Rev. A. Van. den Heuval said at *ue above meeting that 868 children were then on the reKlsters of the schools. Give 268 'or the infants. Ahat will be 600 for the four other schools. Dividing the grants between that number I believe that I am Hot low. Hoping this will be satisfactory to ell it lI1&y concern. RATEPAYER. LLANTWIT FARDRE SCHOOL BOARD. To the Editor of the Chronicle. Dear Sir,-Will yon kindly allow me in contradic- tion of Ratepayer's assertion to state briefly that «ne average grant earned last year by my department 2™ *1 0s 9<J and not 18s, and that Her Majesty's Inspector classed our school as "Excellent." Faithfully yours, „ JOSEPH DAVIES. Boys' School. FOOTBALL.—PENYGRAIG v. UPPER RHONDDA. To the Editor of the Chronicle. Sir,-Ill your last week's issue there appeared a teP.ort of a football matih between the above teams, ?*hich is a disgrace to the Penygraig team for report- it in such an ungentlemanly way, but there it is, *jj*ybody that is acquainted with them know that 'hey are only keeping their reputation up. _^In the first place they say that they were dlayiag VPper Rhondda, while they knew at the same time 'at their fixture was with the Treorky team; it is that there were a few from Treherbert and Jfstrad playing with Trecrky, so as to make the fifteen up, but that don't prove that they were playing upper Rhondda, because all the teams in the Valley Oeat them separately. Every match they have played with Treherbert ever since football commenced in the *aUey, they have been beaten most scandalously, and likewise with the Ystrad team; the last time Ystrad played them at Penygraig the former beat them with only eleven men, while Penygraig were in their strength, cap men included in their team. They also say that the home team played a very lough game,and continually playing off-side, especially H. Brace. That only shows their ignorance of the game, and as for H. Brace, he knows more of the fame and is a better player than any three in the 'enygraig team. The reason why Randall, &c., left the field was because they saw that they were getting a good licking,and having too much work to keep the home team from continually crossing the line, and not through being hurt as they said. There was not single person hnrt all through the game. They also got the face to say they were victorious. I don't like to call nasty names on a young team, but I hope this will do them good, and learn them to re- port their next match honestly for once in their life. The true state of the game was, at the call of time, -AND I defy one of them to say different-Treorky one Soal, 4 tries, and several touches down to one try.— 'hanking you for inserting the above. I am, A LOOKER-ON.
