Disorder at Ross. I At Ross Council schools on Monday morning there was much disorder in the boys' depart- ment. The girls and infants were told when they dispersed on Friday that there would be no school on Monday, and consequently did not turn up. When, however, the bell was rung calling the boys together there was general uproar, the boys cheering and shouting, and eventually the whole of the boys in the upper classes ran from the school and paraded through the streets, shouting and singiag. During the whole of the morning they refused to be taught and threw missiles at the windows. The mauagers were summoned, but when they were told that their power had been taken out of their hands they declined to act. The smaller boys were eventually marched into school about 9 30, and lessons were commenced. The staff provided by the county authority was not nearly sufficient to manage the whole boys' school, which numbers over 200 boys. Strike, boys, strike," and various other legends were chalked all over the school walls and in the town. In the district round Ross great interest is taken in the strike. Only a few of the schools were opened this morning. At Hope Mansell, near Ross, a mistress had been appointed temporarily. The schools at Weston- under-Penyard, Linton, Walford, Bridstow, and in fact in most of the parishes in the Ross district were closed, greatly to the delight of the children, but very much against the wishes of the parents. South of the county town are many village schools which have closed their doors Fownhope, Brockhampton, Linton Church of England, Linton Gorsley Endowed, Aston Ingham, King's Capel, and Little Dew- church. At Brampton Abbot the Rector assisted the one supplementary teacher who alone turned up to open school. A new 'master presided over the Mordiford Council School. The attendance of children was small. The teachers appointed by the County Com- mittee who have taken up their new posts are comparatively few. In one case, according to Mr Nicholls, of the National Union, a master who entered upon his duties on Monday morning approached the strikers in the dinner hour, and in classic language explained that his poverty and not his will consented to take up the position of strike breaker-a role he was quite prepared to abandon if the N.U.T. re- imbursed him for his expenses
