THE WELSH CENTRAL BOARD. The meeting of the Welsh Central Board was continued at Shrewsbury until shortly before midnight on Friday, under the presidency of Mr. A. C. Humphreys Owen, M.P. Mr. Edgar Jones proposed that a special committee of the Board be formed to take into consideration the character of text- books already in existence on Welsh sub- jects, the desirability of arranging for the production and publication of a series of text-books in Welsh literature, history, grammar, and other subjects adapted for use in Welsh intermediate schools. Having started in that matter, Mr. Edgar Jones said that the duty of the Board was to carry it through, and the resolution was only a natu ral sequence of what was done at the last meeting of the Board, to give the study of Welsh its due position in the examination of their schools. At present the study of Welsh was in a chaotic state, and the Board could do a great deal to remedy this. Professor Anwyl seconded the resolution. Dr. Isambard Owen said the great diffi- culty hitherto in regard to the study of Welsh had been the want of suitable text- books. An amendment that the matter be refer- red to the Executive Committee was lost, and the proposition of Mr. Edgar Jones car- ried, with the alteration that the Committee recommend the books for production and publication, which was proposed by Princi- pal ViriamuiJones. On the proposition of Dr. Isambard Owen, it was also agreed that the Sub-committee report to the Executive Committee as well as to the Board. Miss Catherine Davies moved that the Board respectfully urge upon the Vice Chancellor and Senate of the University of Cambridge the extreme desirability of grant- ing the B.A. degree to women who fulfil the prescribed conditions, and is of opinion that the possession of the degree would give to such women, when teachers in public schools, a status which they do not at present enjoy Professor Anwyl seconded this, and it was agreed to. Mr. T. W. Phillips moved—' That the Exe- cutive Committee be requested to report as soon as possible upon the possibility of awarding commercial leaving certificates in connection with intermediate schools, and that the attention of the committee be di- rected to to the syllabus of the various examinations for commercial certificates organised by the London Chamber of Com- merce and the University College of Liver- pool. This was also carried unanimously.
