LATER REPORTS. I LEDBURY. I The strike of school children at Ledbury came to a sudden end on Tuesday. On Monday evening Father Lynch visited certain districts of the town, where some of the ringleaders live, and porsuaded them to return to school. Tho rector of the Parish, Rev F W Carnegy, who is one of the school managers, visited the girls' school half an hour before it opened on Tuesday morning, and as the children arrived in twos and threes beckoned them into school. By this means he prevented the children from collecting in groups, and at nine o'clock, when the teacher who was unable to gain admittance on Monday called the roll there about 100 out of some 200 pupils present. The County Council sent two extra teachers to the school on Tuesday evening. The infants' school remaius closed owing to lack of teachers. ASHPERTON. I There were no scenes at Ashperton. although there were many absentees from school. At Ashperton, on Monday, only 14 children out of 120 entered the school doors. There was a larger number in the class-room, but at neither Ross nor Ashperton was there anything resembling the average attendance. AN M.P. MEDIATOR. I Mr H Fitz Herbert Wright, M.P. for North Herefordshire, in a letter to the Hereford Times, suggests a scale of salaries which he suggests might meet with the approval of both parties. Mr Wright was for many years chair- man of the Derbyshire Education Committee and has therefore a wide experience of the difficutlties of administering an area which con- tains a large number of small village schools in agricultural districts. As Parliamentary repre- sentative he is well acqtiaiuted with conditions in the county, and it would be difficult to find one better qualified to act the part of mediator. The scale of the National Union he thinks would, if adopted, put the teachers of Hereford- shire in a privileged position as compared with their fellows throughout the county, and he suggests another scale as one more equitable So the ratepayers, while establishing for the teachers the principle of payment by scale for which they are striking.
