I Newly-Appointed Master Withdraws. I It was stated on Friday that Mr H Phillips, the assistant master at the Ross Council Schools, had given notice to Mr W G Edwards, head master of the school, that he was about to withdraw his appointment as head master of the Walford Schools in the place of Mr A E Bellamy. In conversa- tion with Mr Edwards, a correspondent was informed that Mr Phillips had shown him the draft letter he had written to Mr John Wiltshire, secretary of the county authority, and it is also understood that U, r Phillips has said that under the present circum- stances he could not conscientiously accept the post, and adds that he now thinks it his duty to remain loyal to the union and sup- port his fellow teachers in the demand for an increased and a proper scale. The announcement has put fresh vigour into the members of the union in the Ross district, and they are now confident that the four teachers, one in the boys' department, two in the girls, and one in the infants' schools, who have not yet resigned, will do so in the near future. The withdrawal of Mr Phillips from the Walford school will place the county authority in a further dilemma, as it is understood on reliable authority that they have not received sufficient applications to fill a quarter of the vacancies that will occur at the end of this week. It is said that at a meeting of the Ross ccanagers, when the question of the teachers' dispute was taken in committee-and the statement has been authenticated by the chairman (Mr F S Collins)—that there were five of the managers in favour of appealing to the Board of Education for arbitration, and five who supported the county authority. When it came to giving a casting vote the Chairman, who ia a member of the county authority, decided in favour of supporting that body. The Rev J W Kettle, whose appointment as a manager of the Roas school was sanctioned by the County Council two days previously, was not notified of his appoint- ment until the morning after the managers' meeting. This made considerable difference to the situation so far as the Ross managers are concerned, for the Rev J W Kettle would have supported the proposition for arbitration had be been present at the meeting. No other appointments have yet been made in the Ross schools, which are the largest in the county outside the city of Hereford. ♦ ————-
