0 Aberdare Evening Schools. ANNUAL DISTRIBUTION OF PRIZES. The annual distribution of prizes and certifi- cates in connection with the Aberdare Evening Continuation School Classes took place on Monday evening at the County School. Coun- cillor 1VI. J. Harries was in the chair, and amongst those present were: Mrs. Walter Lloyd, Mrs. John Griffiths (Park Schools), Airs. Davies (Broniestyn-terrace), Messrs. D. R. Griffiths, Ebenezer Owen, W. R. Williams, B.Sc., and J. D. Thomas (clerfc to the governors of the County School. The Chairman, in his introductory remarks, said he was pleased to be present and to ob- serve the good work these classes were doing. In the whole of Wales in 1903, the number of students attending evening classes was 8,257. There was considerably more than that num- ber at the present time. Mrs. Walter Llpyd, in handing cut the prizes to these who attended the classes, said know- ledge was no burden to carry about, but it always proved useful. A war with Germany, was much talked of at present, but when that war did come, it would ba an intellectual one. Germany were doing all they possibly could towards getting their children properly edu- cated. In davs gone by, England had been supreme, and to hold her own, more attention should be given to, what was termed "the arts of craft." —Other prizes and certi_cates were handed out by Mrs. Griffiths and Mrs. Davies. On the motion of the Chairman, seconded by Mr. E. Owen, a vote of thanks was accorded to the ladies for distributing the prizes. A' similar compliment was accorded to the Chair- man, on the motion of Mr. J. D. The (solicitor), seconded by Mr. D. R. Griffiths.
