j I MR. J. G. JENKINS ON HIS DIGNITY. I What is "Radically Wrong"? Mr. J. G. Jenkins, chairman of Bridgend U.D. Council, who is one of the oldest deacons of the English Congregational Church, Bridgend, was' deputed by the deacons of that church to speak on theix behalf at the recognition service of their late pastor, Rev. William Evans, B.A. (Wil Ifan), the crowned bard, as the new pastor of the Congregational Church in Richmond Rd., Cardiff, in succession to Rev. W. Cadwaladwr Parry. At the recognition service on Wednesday afternoon Rev. William Evans was handed a letter from Mr. Jenkins (who has been head- master at Penybont Boys' School at Bridgend for 55 years) expressing his regret that he was unable to be present, as leave of absence had been refused him by the Director of Education, although his application was ciii-firnied and signed by three of the School Managers. Mr. Jenkins adctal: "1 cannot help thinking that there is something radically wrong in an edu- cation system which precludes one of the oldest teachers in the county from being absent from school on one afternoon to pay a tribute of re- spect to his late pastor/' At the recognition service in question there were present from Bridgend Mr. Wm. Powell, J.P., and Mr. John Lewis.
