TO THE SPECIAL COMMITTEE. Your stubborness surprises roe. What have theoe men and women done to deserve such treatmeab:kk your hands. They asked, pleaded, entreated, or better treatment—all to no pur- potfe. Y< I acknowledged their claim and tried to pat tl.01Ù off with a libtle-and promises. That's not business. Come, now, what are they asking' for ? Market value; that's all. Your Qommitlee is practically the only one under which the cost of education has decreased in the past five years. You know in yoivr hearts that they have ft right to ooaaideratioa, 4md yet you, would rather. givov increases to. strangers.. Shame on you The whole country is against you. Why this attitude ? Because you will not be threatened. You do not like the word Union. Isn't that it? Those, days are past, y(-tir servants have a right to be hemd, and their representatives*, too. The rate will Im up twice or three times, as much as would completely satisfy these people. I hear some of you people will be glad and will, put it upon the teachers. Always remember you have not yet tried to meet the teachers. You offer a sum and take it or leave it is your cry. That's not the 20bh century way, you, know. There is-no dishonour in compromise. It has been demonstrated that it will be a long- time before you can staff Herefordshire—and what sorry stuff you have imported. Welli; Well If yo)u.e"ill,t iiianage it without all this waste come out and let somebody else have gP., J. B. B.- ".V0 THE RATEPAYERS. Iin. sorry for you, my brothers. We arfe* being let in for it very nicely, These teachers, on the one side and the Local Education, Authority on the other. Why, I can see a. shilling rate in no time if> the strike does-imfe end soon. The Local Eduoation Authority are endeavouring to break down, the strike. A, pretty mess they are making of it, and a pretty penny it is going to cost before it is over. We. all know the rate must go up, and if the-. teachers had h id a compromising we should havtt heen better offl Are you going to Bit down l*rJ.Jd hear it without a word? I know some of you don't want to pay increased teachers' salaries, but listen and I'll tell, you. something. Actual offers. Old salary. Ti)- new comers. £ £ 1 115 170 90 50s per week, and 100 140 expenses* 100 140 7 10s 45 These are actual cusea. -which can be verified, and from what I hear the County would be better off without these oowly-appointed.people. I said once before Con you expect people of honour to come and take the place of a person out for a market value wage ?" Advertisements and lawyers' fees will act be small bills. It is about time you made yourselves felt. It is not the teachers who have refused arbitration—- remember that. Ton have got to pay in any case. Blame yourselves if you allow it to dally on, for every day taeans an increased rate. It is not what is being spent, but what is being, wasted and lost Íft grant. Speak lbad now, oc- pay more. J.B.S. I TO* THE TEACHERS. Downhearted yet ? You have no cause to be. What do you thank of those who ro-saain at work, whilst you show a brave front in. the trenches-? I hear more ace to reinforce you in time H. cannot conceive a member of your Union hesitating for a moment just at ifeis time. How they can let you fight their battle and not help I cannot imagine. Be patien-wiser counsels. will prevail 3oon. J. B.& TO TflE PAFJOTS. You have my sympathies. You and your children ase the real sufferers in this quarrel. Although schools are opau, the work being done is practically nil on aosount of the shortage. Unless yoia get the matter settled your children will lose part of their rights and suffer in Suture in consequence. Demaudi a settlemenb. You have the right. If YOUI have any cam for the education of your children,, see that thay get it and waste no time abt4t. it. J.B.S.
