Welsh Societies in Con- ference HONOUR FOR MR J. WALTER JONES, B. A. The Central Wales section of the Un- ion of Welsh Societies held a conference at Brecon on Saturday, the president, Professor Joseph Jones, M.A., B.D., Brecon, presiding. Societies joined the union from Ystradgvnlais in the South to Llanidloes in the North. Professor Jones spoke of the great possibilities of the newly-formed Union, and dwelt on the fact that the chief work of the sec- tion would be for the sprea,d of the Welsh language and the preservation of Welsh ideals. He was especially pleased to see present Father Kane, of Llan- drindod, who had shown himself such a great believer in Welsh nationalism. Air Roland Thomas, B.A., Brecon, was unanimously chosen secretary, and the president, secretary, the Rev. E. 0. Jones, M.A. (Llanidloes), Father Kane, an,d Mr John Walter Jones, B.A., Ys- tradgynlais, were elected to represent the section on the Executive Council. It was decided the meetings should be held at and excursions made to various places of noted historical interest in Central Wales. Resolutions were passed appealing to the Council of the National Eisteddfod of Wales to extend its usefulness by bringing within reach of the people the successful literary work of each eistedd- fod, and by publishing the "awdl" and the "pryddest" on the days of these competitions respectively; that the time has now come for the Government to re- cognise the National Eisteddfod of Wales as a distinctively educational institution, and to render it, financial assistance ac- cordingly; and asking the education authorities of the counties comprising the Central Wales section to double and, if possible, troble the number of scholar- ships the award to teachers to enable them to attend the Summer School this year at Brecon.
