The position at Ledbury. I Two Mew Headmistresses Appointed. Eleven Teachers resigning. I On January 31 no lesq than eleven of the teachers engaged at the three Led bury schools, boys, girls, and infants, down books" in connection with the threatened strike. The only teachers on the whole staff who have not resigned are Mi--G'W!Paul, headmaster of the boys' school and his daughter, X-is., riiiii, who is also engaged in the 'boys' school. Mr C E Baker (certificated), Mr E W Reed and Mr F M Draper (un- certificated), assistants at the boys' school, sent in their notices, which expire on January 31. A new teacher, Mr Burston, appointed by the County Council, commences duty as am uncertificated assistant at the boys' school, on February 1st, but this is not a strike vaeancy, and has existed -since October, when three uncertificated assistants resigned in order to enter college, and only one teacher was procured despite weeks of ad vertising for teachers to fill these vacan- cies. Miss Paul filled another of these, and Mr Burston completes the trio. On February 1, therefore, there will be a headmaster and two uncertificated assistants to do the work of a headmaster one certificated and three uncertificated stants. Iu the girls' tichool the teachers whose resignation* thke effeet on January 31 are Miss Henley, headmistress Miss Hartland, certificated assistant Miss Hart and Mise Lloyd, uncertificated assistants. One uncer- tificated assistant, Miss Ballinger, of Here- ford, who took up her duties as recently as Monday to fill an ordinary vacancy, is not coming out on strike. Official notification was received by the Correspondent, Mr H Vernon Smith, on Thursday noon, of the appointment by the County Council of Miss Fernie, of Stirling, as headmistress of the girl's school at a salary of £ 120 per annum against the old salary of .£100 paid to Miss Henley, and raised to £ 110 under the recent increases. In the infants' school the resignations which take effect at the end of the current month are those of Miss Adams, head- mistress Miss Lee, certificated assistant, who is absent on leave at present; Miss Hardwick and Miss Underwood, uncertificated assistants-the whole staff of the school. At present, the only appointment made by tke County Council to fill these four vacancies is that of Miss Senyard, of Staines, at a salary of £ 100 per annum, against the old salary of .£110 paid to Miss Adams, since increased to .£115. The teachers of Ledbury are very loyal to the Union, and it is unlikely that there will be any waverers amongst the eleven prospec- tive strikers."
