Rhyl. Proposed Eiffel Tower.-It is stated it has been decided to erect an Eiffel Tower at Rhyl 140 feet high. Thanksgiving Services.—The various churches were crowded on Sunday, some of the thanksgiving services being very impressive. The local volun- teers, under the command of Captain Hall, attended morning service at St Thomas' Church. After a touching sermon by the Rev Thomas Lloyd, the congregation joined heartily in singing God save the King." Upon the conclusion of the service the bells rang a joyful peal. Yacht Racing. On Saturday afternoon there was an exceedingly interesting race on the Mar ine Lake, Rhyl, between seven of the fleet of yachts belonging to the Rhyl Yacht Club. The wind was brisk from the north-west, and a good start was made in the presence of a fair gathering of people. The result was that Mr Fielding's Fad was first, Mr Hugh Hughes's Nanna second, Mr E. T. Roberts's Magnet third, Mr E. H. Lewis's Portia fourth, Mr Hudson's Eric fifth, and Mr Simcock's Zaza, sixth. Mr J. P. Lewis's Gloria II. was not timed, retiring before the close of the race. North Wales Undenominational Schools Asso- ciation.-The Executive Committee of the North Wales British and Undenominational Schools Association met at Rhyl on Wednesday last, the Rev J Hughes (Holyhead) presiding, to prepare a scheme for the aid grant among the several schools forming the Association. It was announced that the total amount of grant to be distributed was ,c781 9s, which was rather more than the amount to be distributed last year. The amounts recom- mended to be allowed to the different schools are pretty much the same as those made twelve months ago. Before the meeting ended Mr Abel Williams (Carnarvonshire) proposed, and the Rev Hugh Roberts (Flintshire) seconded-" That this Execu- tive Committee of the North Wales British and Undenominational Schools Association expresses its strong disapproval of the Government Education Bill now before Parliament, because (I) it does not provide absolute freedom from, all religious tests for scholars and teachers (2) it does not provide public control ot all State-supported schools by public bodies expressly elected for the purpose by the ratepayers, and constituted in such a manner as to secure the thorough representation of the rate- payers and an efficient supervision of the schools. The resolution was carried.
