+. Recreation Ground for Miskin. OCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD INQUIRY. STRONG REMARKS BY THE INSPECTOR. On Tuesday, Mr. Edgar Dudley, F.S.I., one bf the Inspectors of the Local Government Board, conducted an inquiry At the Town Hall, Mountain Ash, into an application by the Dis- trict Council for sanotion to borrow zCI,734 for the purpose of providing a recreation ground at Miskin, Mountain Ash. There were present, Couns. W. Davies, Griffith Evans, Silas Wil- liams, Rev. E. V. Tidman, W. Lamburn, Mr. J. M. Linton (deputy clerk to the Council), Mr. Stock (accountant), Mr W. Thomas (sur- veyor), Mr. A. Morgan (director of education), and Mr Williams (architect to the Education Committee). The Inspector elicited the fact that there was no opposition to the scheme. Mr. J. M. Linton said the area of the dis- trict was 10,503 acres; population at the last census 31,093, and the estimated population at present being 43,000; rateable value, £ 187,399; assessable value, £ 144,000; outstanding liabili- ties, £ 29,426; loans sanctioned but not exer cised, nil; total indebtedness of the Council, £ 159,760, including the indebtedness due for iburiai purposes, £ 168,810. There was no over- Araft, INSPECTOR ANNOYED. :At this point the Inspector said these figures Should have been supplied to the Local Govern- ment Board prior to his coming there. It was very 'difficult to conduct an inquiry without 'having the details beforehand.—Mr Linton: 'All the information asked for has been suppli- -led-rnspector Dudley: That is not the ques- tion. Why did you not as business men, give all the information at first ? What is the poor rate for, the year?—Mr. Linton: The accountant Will obtain it. Mr. Stock, the accountant, went out to get the information which led the Inspector to say Ith,ati he never saw anything more unbusiness- like, in Ins life. There was no information if&?TO66ming.—Mr. Linton! I never heard this asfe&d-'fer at an inquiry before.—Mr. Dudley Kwarmly) I have conducted several inquiries here and I have always asked for it. Mr. Stock now informed the Inspector that epoor rate for the year was 4s. 2d.; gen- eral district rate, 3s. 2d.; making 7s. 4d. in all. A penny rate yielded J6644. The Council asked for sanction to borrow the amount repayable in thirty years. Mr. Thomas, the Council's Surveyor, stated that the existing recreation ground were the Victoria Ground, Darrenlas, 7.42 acres, the ground in this case having been given in ex- change for another plot in Aberdare, and the Penrhiwceiber Recreation Ground, 4 acres, the ground being given free on condition that the Council made the roads, etc. These were. not sufficient for the needs of the district. The Council had negotiated for a plot in the Mis- kin area, and the proposed plot was 2,821 eores. Inspector: Can you give it me in roods tfbd perches?—Mr. Thomas: Two acres, 3 roods, ill perches. Inspector: And the priqe to be paid for it?— Mr. Thomas: £ 1,734 The Inspector: What is that per acre? Is it not reasonable that all this information should be supplied before hand? Why should it be necessary for me to have to get all, this information by asking questions.—Mr. Lin- ton: The Local Government Board could have had all this information if they asked for it.— The Inspector: Why should it be necessary to write for it? You should certainly have sup- plied these -details.-Mr. Linton: They were never supplied nor asked for in previous in- quiries, and there has been no suggestions from the Local Government Board that they were required.—Inspector: I should think it would havae suggested itself to you as a busi- ness man that this information was required. Let us, however, get on. What is the price per acre?—Mr. Thomas: £ 770. There are certain provisions that the Council should make certain roads. The Inspector: This is the first I have heard bf that. Do you not think as business men that I could consider this application better if these particular as had been supplied me? What about the costs?—Mr. Linton: The Council pays the vendors' costs and their own. We are not. asking for a loan for that. The ground is freehold. FURTHER COMPLAINTS. Mr. Thomas said he estimated the cost of taaking the roads would be JB562. The Edu- cation Committee had taken the adjoining plot, .72 acres, for JB457. which was at the same rate per acre. The Council proposed to pay for the making of the roads out of revenue.—The Inspector: Why does not the Education Com- mittee pay a part of the cost of making the road ? As it appears now the Educataion Com- mittee gets the land for 2770 an acre, while the cost of this recreation ground will be JB970 and, £ CJ%-rME. Thomae WO that tbit pou I 4& had not yet decided the question of how the cost of the ro&dmaking would be allocated be- tween the Council and the Education Commit- tee, and he was only giving the Inspector the total cost. The Inspector: Do you not think that it would be more satisfactory if these details had been settled beforehand, and the information given me? It is a very strange way to pro- ceed?—Mr. Alfred Morgan, Director of Educa- tion I can assure you, sir, that the Council will not allow the Education Committee to score over them. Whatever the Committee ought to pay they will be called upon to do so.—Coun. W. Davies said that the portion re- quired for the Education Committee was se- cured before the question of acquiring the larger site was taken up. # The Inspector: My point is that the own- ers get practically £ 1,000 per acre for this piece of ground for recreation purposes. It is a very great price to pcay.-Coun. Davies: We fully recognise that. We felt that the price was vastly beyond what we. had hoped to get it at, but at the same time we recognised that there was no place for the children to play except by trespassing on other people's property or. in the street. In either case they were liable to be prosecuted, and as we had no alternative we were compelled to pay this price. The Inspector: You are, by having a recre- ation ground on this spot, and by making these roads, materially increasing the value of the vendors' land, which, I .understand, lies all round. In Bolton, recently, the owner of the land gave five acres free for such a purpose, and land is dear at Bolton.-ML W. Davies: The same thing was done in Penrhiwceiber, but here we cannot help ourselves.—The In- spector: When you pay for land to build a school upon that increases the value of the adjoining property, but not to the extent that a recreation ground does. VERY HIGH PRICE. Mr. W. Davies: I strongly urged that view on the representatives of the owners, Mr. A. Morgan. The land in this district will fetch that .price if sold for building purposes. It is a very crowded district. I do not know whether you have visited the spot.The In- spector: No, but I will do so. I do not say anything as to its commercial value. All I say is that £ 1,000 an acre is a very high prioe to pay for land for recreation purposes.—Mr. ) Stock: We had to pay JB800 a year for land for a cemetery. You will remember that, for you held the inquiry.—Rev. E. V. Tidman: The Cemetery was cheaper than this by a couple of hundred pounds an acre.—The In- spector The land is freehold ?—Mr. Linton: Yes, but the minerals are reserved. At this point the communication which had passed between Messrs. Nixons, the owners of the land, and the Council were read, and the Clerk said that no provisional agreement had been entered into,- but the letters were binding. —The Inspector: What is proposed to be done with regard to the laying out and the fencing ef this ground?—Mr. Linton: The Council has not yet considered that question. The Inspector: I do not see any reason why this inquiry should be held. Why deal with a matter like this in the piecemeal fashion you have?—Conn. W. Davies: We did not think there was any necessity for an inquiry.—The Inspector: You did not expect to be allowed to have the sanction of the Local Government Board to pay £ 1,000 an acre for ground for recration purposes without an inquiry? Why not bring all the facts before us? Suppose that in six months you require money to fence and lay out this ground you will require another inquiry—Mi*. W. Davies: That will be paid out of revenue.—-Inspector :■ It is altogether most unbusinesslike.—Mr. Davies As a Coun- cil we were most anxious to do something to procure somewhere for the. children to play. The Inspector: That is right enough, but why not consider the whole cost? Very often applications come before the Board, which seem fair enough on the face; but the contingent costs make them undesirable. To place a case like this piecemeal before the Board does not give the Board fairplay. If the fencing costs another £ 1,000 an acre you can see for your- self that it must put a; very different com- plexion on the matter, and must affect the de- cision of the Local Government Board. How can I report to the Board on the soundness and reasonableness of this proposal when I can not get the whole facts before me?—Mr. A. Morgan: It is wellnigh impossible to get any other plot of land for the purpose in that neigh- bourhood. VALUE OF OTHER LAND. In reply to inquiries by the Inspector as to the cost of other land in the immediate neigh bourhood, he was informed that the County School site cost ;61,000 An acre, and that the owners got 2d. a yard as ground rent for build- ing land in the district.—The Inspector asked how the Council proposed to get, say, £ 200, if that amount was allocated to the Education Committee towards the cost of the road, and Mr. Morgan said they would have either to bor- row or to pay it but of revenue.—The Inspec- tor: This morning is very unsatisfactory.—Mr. Morgan: I am afraid you began badly by los- ing your train (laughter). At this stage Mr. Williams, the architect to the Education Committee, came to the inquiry, but he could not add much to the information already given, but pdinted out that a portion of the road leading to the school had already been constructed at the cost of the Education Com- mittee.—The Inspector asked if there was any further evidence, and being told there was not asked those present if they had anything to say. Coun. Silas Williátnff said that the feeling of the members of the Council and the members of the Education Committee, was unanimous in favour of this application. The children had nowhere to go to play without being liable to be proseouted.—The Inspector: I quite ap- preciate the necessity of a recreation ground.— Mr. Williams said that all the land around was being rapidly taken up for building purposes, and that was practically the only plot available. On behalf of the Council^ and especially the par- ents and children, in that locality he appealed through the Inspector to the Local Government Board to sanction the application, so that the children might have, a chance to develop them- selves physically as well as mentally.—Coun. W. Davies said he would like to endorse what had been said by Mr. WillianjB. There was no other ground available, and it was perfectly clear that it Was a most undesirable state of things for the children in such a crowded lo- cality to be without any recreation ground of any Kind. He felt that the cost Was very great and the price paid greatly in favour of the landlords. He hoped, however, that the appli- cation would be granted for the sake of the children. The Inspector, having closed the inquiry, visited the spot and will report in due course.

When near the Creseley Inn, George Williams jumped out from the side and knocked her down. He placed his hand on her mouth. She tried to scream bu failed. Directly afterwards the other two defendants came on the scene. They held her down. She managed to scream and defendants thereupon left her.—In reply to George Williams, she said he did not ask him to come with her for a walk. She was not talking to him on the canal bank when the other two passed by. She did not see a gang of boys approaching, and it was not because of their approach that she screamed. She did not make any arrangement to meet the defen- dants behind the Creseley Hotel.—P.S.

I did not do anything to her."—When charged in court defendants repeated these statements, Williams iidding that the girl had oftentimes asked him to come down to her house when her parents were out.-Defendants were committed for trial at the Assizes, bail being allowed.
Mountain Ash Easter Eisteddfod. MUSICAL ADJUDICATIONS. The following are the notes of Dr. Walford Davies, the chief adjudicator at the recent Mountain Ash Eisteddfod :— Chief Choral Competition, "Thanks be to God."—Newport: Bass lead wanted freedom and tone; subsequent bass leads needed strength, soprano weight; contralto, rich and full, but not strong; tenors good; slight sharp- ening at the end. Words clear; "nughty" and "rush, etc., well brought out. Attack in "Thanks" at the end over eager, and not clear. An effective quickening at the last. "Waters gather, they rush &long," excellent, and a full Bing at the end, but otherwise dis- tinguished as a straightforward, vigorous ren- dering, without much cumulation of effect.- Llanidloes: A very large choir. Basses, free style ,of lead; soprano not so good; weak bal- ance altos a little harsh—they shout, sharpened a little. Great energy in attack, somewhat in- disorimmafce, and used not niuch "sosterruto." Too much shouting; rely upon mere force; not much expression of any other kind attempted. True, few opportunities, but they are there, and should be sought out. Pontycymmer: Basses good; brilliant tone generally, especial- ly soprani. Alto, good tone, but lees heard because of wrong position on platform. Tenors over eager, but good. Sharpening badly on page 102, and remained so, especially tenors. Fine attack, clear words, a more deliberate pace, and more expression attempted, some- times tending to weaken the effect, notably page 100, line 3. A fait Sustaining power, great energy then but curiously weakened at the last phrase.—Cwmavon: Bass lead late, and they went apart altogether for a few bars, but recovered. Basses led off best; trebles free and powerful; a little shrill Tenors fairly good; altos £air; one of the best for tone; sheer weight, fairly in tune; pronunciation fairly ollear. Pace deliberate; more precision thdn fire, the words "fury," "mighty," "rush," sfce., suffering in consequence. Gravity gained, but lost feeling of joy in rendering. Slip caused serious confusion.—Rhymney: Basses, fine lead off; trebles bright, tenons effective; slight sharpening near the end, but otherwise excellent intonation; a good deal of "Tush" here. The porformajice more alive than any so fai. They attempted a kind of expression, "legato," at page 100, without much damaging the effective force of emphatic delivery. "But tihie Lord" -;mght have been heavier. Second Choral, 'Ob, Father, Whose Almighty Power. "Trecynon: Tone of upper treble notes weak, not pleasant, otherwise compact and good escEiientir in tune. Attack excellent. Tone good; treble phrasing good,; plenty of energy; accents a little tearing and overdone; j "legato eostenisto" neglected.—Abercwmboi: j 1'one fairly good, well blended, trebles shrill, well in TIUK*; excellent precision. Beantrfui beginning and gathered force for page 27. Ex- pression good to listen M; good ending. Why not equal precision by a splendid "legato?" MHMNMMMNMWMISNMAAAJMIMMMAMINMMMHUM? cynon: Tone outset beautiful; little thinner later. Well in tune; attack and words good. Beautiful beginning achieved here in pace,and expression; perhaps the best so far; but second page a little disappointing; lacked force. The whole output of energy might have been better. —Pontycymmer: Rich tone, well blended, good intonation; attack and words good. Ex- pression and pace more sustained, adding to fulness and solidity of effect. On the whole, the best effort so far. Aber Valley: Good tone, well blended in tune, sharpened once. Attack and words clean. Good "sostenuto" and expression, especially in trebles; a fine be- ginning; perhaps too deliberate. "Allegro" handicapping the ending, which certainly seemed to flag, and a ta-me effect. -U&nidloes: Trebles weak at the outset. Tone of whole choir in "pianissimo" passages was not tell- ing; needed rcrunding. Well in tune; attack and words good. Expression good at the be- ginning; "fugue" at a good pace; "Staccato" crochtet used. too much,, cutting solidity out of movement./Tr P^r^iwcc^eT Qood tone, well blended, and in tune- Not qUl'té, clean at attack. Fine "crescendo" being "al- legro," and fairly good "sostenuto." Deliber- ate pace in "fugue"; good cadences, excellent ending; good Handelian style. Chief Male Voice Contest, "The Rising Storm."—Mountain Ash: Time incorrect at "bow down," page 6. Basses better than the tenors; basses splendid, tenors sadly weak. Intonation sadly uncertain owing to tenors. Tenors began to sink in pitch at the very second bar. Attack and words excellent. A wonderfully beautiful "p.p." tone achieved, full of life and conviction. Some forced ac- cents, but details immensely careful, and a good conception in many cases. "But now arises a far-off sound" not far enough; a sud- den change.—Pontardawe: Tone not perfectly free better balance than Choir No. 1. Tenors sharp, but generally good intonation. Attack and words clear. A much more restrained be- ginning, and "but now arises," etc., well done, beautifully gradual. Many of the excellent points, the bell and true religious section at the end, well sustained finely cono--ived.-Konfig Hill: Time incorrect at the outset; guaver given the same value as a semi-quaver, and practically sung at 12-8 time. Tenors stronger in purpose and voice; shrill in places; good tone throughout, and intonation good. Attack and words excellent. Expression graphic and carefully prepared, and well throughout; ex- cellent "pianissimo." Good beginning.—Bir- mingham: Inaccurate time value, at the outset, rendered in 12-8 time. Tenors' tone, thin effect; underparts some good tone, needs care- ful blending. Sharpening, and not internally in tune in the chords themselves, sharpening badly. Attack and words fairly good, but sadly marred by false intonation..
I Mountain Ash Education Committee. THE RECENT SURCHARGES. REQUISITES FOR THE ROMAN CATHOLIC SCHOOL. The ordinary meeting was held on Tuesday, under the presidency of the Rev. E. V. Tid- man. The report of the Inspector on his visit to the Caegajw School was produced by the Dir- ector.—It was agreed that the same be printed and circulated among the members. A letter was read from the Board of Educa- tion, pointing out -that the Ynysybwl School would,in future be recognised for 150 pupils. The Director applied for a cheque to be drawn for L2 8s. in favour of Councillor Dd. Rogers, for expenses incurred in attending a conference at Sh-rowsbary.-Ca-pt. G. A. Evans: Is it a legal payment?—The Director: It was a committee of the Association of Education Committees.—Dr. Morgan: The question is, is it a legal payment ?-Mr. Evans: If it is not legal, I for one will not allow it to pass.—The Director: The Auditor has never objected to this conference, and the clerk has never re- ported it to be illegal.—Mr. T. W. Jones moved tha.t the cheque be drawn.—Mr. Silas Williams: We had the matter before us at the last meeting. Where were those men at the last meeting? It is childish for them to come here now and raise an objection after others have attended and done the work.—Mr. Wm. Davies: And where were they when Mr. Rogers was chosen to go to this conference?—Capt. Gray: Well, we can still enter our protest against payment. I understood that the Clerk had reported it was legal, and now it is said that the Clerk has never reported on it, which is a. different thing.—It was decided to draw a cheque for the necessary amount. There was a further letter in reference to the amounts recently surcharged by the Audit- ot, being expenses incurred by some of the members in attending certain conferences.—Mr. Linton (jun.) said thfcre was no reason why the correspondence with the Local Government Boa.rd on this matter should go on further. It would be well if the members in question were asked to refund the money.—Capt. Gray: I propose that the members surcharged pay up (laughter) .-Capt G. A. Evans seconded the motion, which was carried unanimously. Mr. John Morris, the Director of the Aber- dare Education Committee, wrote stating that his Committee wer6 no prepared to go into the question of employing a whole-time den- tist. The Director suggested that he should invite the Pontypridd Committee to join them in this venture, and it was decided to communi- cate with Pontypridd. It was reported that the School Medical Officer had ordered1 the closing of the Caegarw Schools on account of an outbreak of measles in the district. Letters were read from Mrs. Husband, a widow residing at Penrhiwoeiber, and Miss Bennett, Mountain Ash, applying for posts as uncertificated teachers under the Committee.— Mr. Thomas Jones moved that Mrs. Husband be appointed to fill the vacancy at the Pen- rhiwceiber School, and Miss Bennett r the vacancy at the Ynysyboeth Schools.—This was seoonded by Mr. T. W. Jones.—Mr. D. Rogers, in moving an amendment, questioned the ad- visability of employing teachers who had been out of the profession for such a long time. Mr. Rogers further added that they would shortly have a number of teachers leaving college, who would require situations. Dr. Morgan seconded the amendment.-On a divi. sion, the proposition was carried by eight votes to six. The Committee next considered the attend- ance returns, the percentage on the books being 86.2. The Director also produced the returns from other education authorities for the last twelve months.—Mr. William Davies said that although they were dissatisfied with their per- centage, they were nevertheless, better off than a number of other authorities.—Mr. D. Rogers said that some of the schools in their area were always low. In the Institute School there was only a percentage of 85. There was no reason for these children to be absent. They could expect 100 per cent. from them These chil- dren were within a few montha of leaving. They ought to make the best of it, and the Committee should press them to do oo.-Tho Director: You cannot compel them to attend when they are over 14 years of age—Mr. Rogers: The vast majority of them are under fourteen. Mr. Rogers proceeded to urge that an occasional half-holiday should be given. This would be an enoouragement for the chil- dren to attend more regularly.—The returns were adoptedv The Roman Catholic School Committee sub- mitted the following reports:—The Committee considered H.M.I.'s report upon the Roman Catholic School, dated 14th February, 1910.— It was resolved that we recommend the Edu- cation Committee to instruct the Architect to report upon the work necessary to be done to the Roman Catholic School playgrounds, and furnish an estimate of the cost of the same.- With regard to the supply of literature referred to in paragraph 2 of HLM.L's report, we re- commend that the Director of Education be instructed to reply fo the Board of Education stating that the Committee have a scale of allowances for the supply of books, apparatus, and stationery to their schools^ and that the Roman Catholic School is supplied with books, etc., requisitioned up to the value of the amounts allowed. That we recommend that the Director of Education make inquiries re- specting the character of the geography and history books in use at the Roman Catholic School, and also ascertain whether copies of the new syllabus of needlework have been sup- plied to the school. That with respect to the soap and towels which ELM.I.'s report states should be provided, we recommend that the Director of Education reply to the Board of Education to the effect that soap and towels are supplied schools when requisitioned in the proper way. That we recommended that the Architect be instructed to effect the necessary repairs to diesks at the Roman Catholic SchooL -Theno was a further recommendation from the Committee that chairs be provided for each nlmaa teacher, as well as a desk for the head heachier.-MT. W. Davies proposed, and I; Mr. Griffith Evans seconded, the adoption of I the report, and the motion was carried. Members entered complaints against the i manner in which the Technical Classes held in their schools by the County Council had finish- j ed up. In some classes where examinations 1 had been arranged, the examiners did not turn j up; and in others, there were no examination J papers there.—It was decided that the Dirco- I tor ahowd, write to the County Council on the < matter. f

Ynysybwl Miners' Meeting. I At a well-attended meeting of the Lady Windsor CoUiery workmen, Ynysybwl, last Thursday evening, under the presidency of Mr. Henry James, chteckweigher, the new agree- ment and the conduct of the negotiations leading thereto by the Executive were adversely criticised The Chairman stated that, in his opinion, it was high time to curtail the auto- cratic power wielded by the Executive by the introduction of a lay element, to.. the ertent of at least half its number, and expressed himself as being strongly in favour of the steps sug- gested by Mr. Tom Eynon, Bargoed for a thor- ough and democratic reorganisation of the Fed- erations comprised in the M.F.G.B., with a view to more united national action on ques- tions affecting the whole of the miners. The following resolution was unanimously carried:—That we strongly protest against the action of our "Executive in hot giving the .workmen an opportunity of accepting or reject- ing the owbers' -finfcl proposals before submit- ting same 'to the 'M.F.dP.B. Had this beert don^- our Executive would have had a much stronger case to put before the conference, and, we be- lieve, have convinced even the autocrats of that body of the justice of our case and of our de- termination with their help of striking a blow that would once and for all put an end to the tyranny, oppression, and injustice which exist."

The old ward committee was re-elected, provisionally, pending report of the committee. It was also decided to consult Mr. Edgar Jones, M.P., with respect to a public meeting.—Councillor E. Morris, who was visiting London, was chosen to approach Mr. Jones, and to bring report to next meeting. GILCHRIST LECTURES.—A meeting of the inhabitants of Penrhiwceiber was held in the Public Hall, on Thursday evening last, Mr. Wm. Geen presiding.

All sections and branches of activity were represented. He thought that such an assembly augured well for the success of the lectures.—Rev. W. R. Jones said he thought the secretary, Mr. Rhys Morgan., deserved commendation for the way he had set to work. —Rev. D. Jones suggested that Lord Aberdare, Mr. Keir Hardie, and others who had used their influence to make the application successful, should be informed of the success of the applica- tion, and thanked for their ready help.—A resolution embodying the suggestion was passed. A small executive committee was chosen to carry out the work of organisation.

Pontypool Whitsuntide Fetes. This year's programme is stronger than ever. Liberal as was last year's great scheme, the Pontypool Chamber of Trade are organis- ing horse competitions for Whit-Monday, and are giving splendid prizœ-£10, JE4 and JE1 for the Galloway; J68, JB4, and £1 in the jumping class; # J65, £2 and JB1 in the trotting class; and similar prizes for local tradesmen's turn- outs, competitors to reside within four miles of the Town Hall, Pontypool. The leading per- formances in the variety department will be those of Herr Ponchery and La Belle Rosa— monarches of the high wire—whose funny and interesting feats won so much appreciation last year at these fetes. The George French Troupe, five in number, will no doubt arouse a great deal of excitement and amusement in their great comedy and trick cycling. The Hogbns, with their unique speciality act and breakaway ladders, are quite new to this oountrv. Only very recently they came to the Agricultural Hall frqom the Continent; and their acts should prove to be among the best ever seen at any fete. The balloon ascent and parachute descent, always such an attrac- tion, are again in charge of the world-famed aeronauts, the Spencer Brothers. A lively turn will be that of the Ettenas, in their amus- ing. rolling globs entertainment. These are two ladies and gentlemen, their apparatus con- sisting of a large sphere, which the ladies in turn stand upon, and thus trundle up aqd down a staircase and over a stage see-saw. The rolling globe is manipulated with marvellous skill 111 a variety of ways, while the knock- about antics and gags of the male members of the troupe are a source of continual merriment. A graceful performance on a triple trapeze will bo carried out by the three Milfords. Another highly interesting turn will be that of the three Azaleks, whose absurd comedy kcts on the three bars will cause roars of laughter.

The Teaching Profession. I We have received the following letter froTn Mr. Marshall Jackman, president, National Union of Teachers:— The Board of Education, in their annual re- port just issued, when dealing with the ques- tion of the supply of teachers, say that at the present moment an idea is being dissemin- ated that a large proportion of young persons newly trained and qualified for teaching posts will find themselves permanently unable to obtain employment." The Board try to show that this statement is fallacious and that in a few years' time there will be a shortage of qual- ified adult teachers for elementary schools, The reference to the dissemination of the state- ment with regard to the glut of teachers is evidently aimed at the action taken by the National 'Union of Teaehjeis at the Plymouth Conference, and also to a circular which the executive of the Union sent out to parents warning them respecting the attitude of the Board of Education with. regard to the supply of qualified teachers inflemeffta.^y'schools.. Let me say at' once that we have never* said the young persons newly trained would find them- selves permanently unable to obtain employ- ment. What we have said, and what we are prepared to prove, is that under the present conditions of staffing in our schools many newly qualified teachers, trained at considerable ex- pense to the public, in addition to private ex- penditure, find themselves unable to obtain em- ployment for many months, or even a year or more, after leaving college, while tens of thou- sands of classes in the schools are being taught by unqualified teachers. It is not sufficient for the Board of Education, in order to prove that there is no dearth at the present time, to give figures for 1908; they are in a better position than we are to find out the latest figures, as all teachers, directly they commence work, have to notify the Board of Education to that effect, for the purpose of recording service. Let me give the figures for last year. In July, 1909, 4,836 newly qualified trained teachers left the training colleges to seek em- ployment in the elementary schools of this country. On October 1st only 2.860 had se- cured permanent employment, 192 had obtained temporary employment as certificated teachers. 144 had accepted employment as uncertificated teachers, .although they were trained and cer- tificated, and no less than 1,528 were without employment at all. In London the glut of teachers is even more serious than for the country as a whole. Out of 494 students who left the L.C.C. training colleges in July, 1908, nearly 20 per cent. had failed to obtain places by the end of the year, and of 525 students who left the L.C.C. training colleges in July, 1909, 352 were reported as-being unemployed in October last year. As the staffing arrange- ments for London arc made at the beginning of the educational year, which commences in August, there is very little prospect of many of those teachers securing employment in London during the present year. These figures, at any rate, I think, will convince parents that at the present time there is" a large amount of unemployment in the teaching profession. It might be well for those whose young people are awaiting appointment to write directly, or through their Parliamentary representative, to the Board of Education, giving information as to unemployment. The matter is entirely one for that Board. They have full powers to end all difficulties satisfactorily. I quite agree thaturiless steps are taken to deal with this matter of supply, there will be a very serious shortage of properly qualified teachers in a few years' time. Parents are not I likely to make years of sacrifice in order to prepare their children for the teaching pro- fession only to find that at the end of their college career, just as they are entering on manhood and womanhood, no suitable places open for ) them. Moreover, the Board of Education, by a recent Act of Parliament, have secured pow- ers to obtain reimbursements of the amounts ?pent by the State on the training of these I young people if they do not take up service in a recognised efficient school. These young people are placed on the horns of a dilemma. There is no place for them in, the schools for I which they have been trained, and they must not seek employment outside or the Board of 'I Education will insist on the repayment of the cost of their training. Yet there is absolutely I no need for one of these young people to be out of a place if the Board of Education insisted on the employment of properly qualified teachers. In the schools of England and Wales there are more than i8,000 supplementary teachers em- ployed. that is, teachers who have absolutely no qualification, either academic or professional, for the work in which they are engaged. The Board are allowing new teachers of this class to be appointed, while fully qualified trained I teachers are idle. Another very strong reason why there is likely to be a dearth in the near I future is that many Education Authorities, op- pressed With the heavy rate burden,#endeavour to secure relief by breaking contract with the teachers with regard to their scales of salaries. It has only been by continued efforts that the Union has been able to prevent this disastrous policy from being carried out, and a grave I conflict averted. At the present moment the Union is dealing with two such cases. If the Board of Education secured greater financial aid from the Treasury they would be able to relieve the strain on the localities and at the same time insist, as they doc in secondary- schools, that the children shoqOkl be taught by fully qualified teachers.

Vaynor Parish Council. A meeting of the Vaynor Parish Council was held in the Board Room, Cefn Coed, on Friday evening last. There were present:— Councillors Ernest Dew, Taliesin Griffiths, James Price, John Morgan (Pontsfcicill), R. C. Jenkins, Roger Vaughan, D. J. Gould, Rev. R. Morris (Pontsticill), D. Wilkins (Church Tavern), William Williams, Harry Evans, David Gould, Watkin Meredith, and the clerk, Mr. William Harries. It being the first meeting of the new Coun- cil, Mr. T. Griffiths was appointed chairman pro tem. Mr. John Morgan then moved that Mr. TaL Griffiths, the outgoing chair- man, be reappointed, and Mr. Roger Vaughan seoonded the motion.—Mr. Watkin Meredith said it was customary—in fact, a resolution had been carried to that effect—tha* when the chairman's term of office was over, the vice- chairman, in the natural course of events, should become his sucoessor. He, therefore, moved that Mr. John Morgan bo appointed.— Mr. Morgan, however, refused to allow his name to be submitted to the vote, and Mr. Meredith having no seconder, the motion was carried.—The Chairman, in thanking them for the honour they had conferred upon him by re- electing him, informed the Council that under the circumstances it would be advisable, in his opinion, for them to re-appoint Air. John Mor- gan as their vioe-chairman, and expressed the hope that with a little more experience Mr. Morgan would see his way clear to accept the appointment of chairman next year.—Mr. Mor- gan was unanimously selected vice-chairman. After making reference to a custom which has prevailed for many years anent the ap- pointment of overseers, the Chairman moved that the selection of overseers be confined within the Council.—This was seconded by Councillor Meredith and supported by Coun- cillors Roger Vaughan and R. C. Jenkins.— The motion was carried without a dissentient. —At this juncture, Councillor Dew asked what were the qualifications neoessary to be an over- seer.—The Chairman explained that one must be a substantial householder, but t.b&t he aright be a householder and a ratepayer. A servant was not a householder.—Councillor Vaughan thought in order to avoid accusations of par- tiality being made when levying the rates, the overseer for Vaynor should be appointed from Cefn.—Councillor Harry Evans explained that when the rating was done, all the overseers were present. For instance, it was not the overseer for the hamlet of Gelli that was rat- ing the hamlet of Gelli.-—Councillor Vaughan expressed his eaiisfactaon witn tie explanation. —The following were ihèn appointed over- seers Councillor Wilkins, for the hamlet of Gelli; Councillor D. J. Gould, for the hamlet of Duffryn; Councillor Harry Evans, for Cefn and Councilor James Prioe.—A resolution was passed to the effect that the two absent coun- cillors, John Thomas and Rees Morris, be allowed to record their declaration not later than the second cidinary meeting.—After the meeting, the, overseers' met for t purpose of making a new rate for the half-year, ending September, 1910.—Jt was resolved to make a poor rate of 3s. 6d., and a special expenses rate of lOd. in the Are you lookin. for anything:?
