i "PREVENTION AND GUIDANCE. "| I WORK OF N.S.P.C.C. AT SWANSEA. I RECORD OF STEADY AND CONTINUOUS GOOD. The annual meeting of the Swansea branch of the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children was held at the Guildhall on Friday afternoon, the Mayoress (Mrs. T. T. Corker presiding in the a bat nee of the Mayer. Amongst those present were; Mr. Joseph Hall, Coun. Milbourne Williams (hon. sec.), Mrs. M. B. Williams, Major aad Mrs. Bertie Perkins, Mrs. David Harris, -I t rs. F?ert i PeTkiiis, Mrs. David Ha.Ili. R?v. H. J. Sandheim, Mr?. C. T. Ruthen, Mrs. Ade1Úd0 Perkins, and Mr. A. I-1. E: Walters. Letters of apology for non-attendance were received from Mr. W. J. Rees, Col. Morgan, Miss Vivia.n. Mrb. Picton Turbervill, and Miss Lindsay. The 16th annual report, presented by Coun. Melbourne Williams, was a very interesting document. It stated that during the year 271 oases affecting the welfare of 822 children had been dealt with, a de- crease of eighteen -cases compared with 1912. In only five casts were a prosecution under- taken. In the remaining 266 cases a warn- ing by the inspector was followed by super- vision visits. In the large majority ot j cases a VERY GREAT IMPROVEMENT u I -? A was brought &bout. fomoe lauo, 6,14H oases bad been investigated by the branch, affect- ing 8,137 children. All but five cases out cf 176 were prosecuted successfully. During the same period the inspector paid 9,245 supervision visits. The committee were g-ad 1 to report tlia-t the financial year's work showed a credit bahtnoe of £ 117 3s. 8d., and they wished to express their thanks to Mrs. Bertie Perkins and the Ladies' Committee, and also to the district s,-cretariez and com- mittees. who had nnclert*k^n the very difH- cult and thankless task of collecting the subscriptions. During the ye-ar the branch bad SUSTAINED A SEVERE LOSS I by the departure from Swansea of Mrs. Picton Turbervill, one cf the vice-presidents, Mrs. Turbervill was not ooily th largest I subscriber to the bnncll, but was always j a regular attendant at the Executive Com- ¡ mittee and other meetings.The committee thanked the Education Committee and the Board of Guardians for their generous sub- scriptions. During the year the Execu- I da, t year th-e Execi- tive Committee had appointed Mr. A. H. R Walters as tht-ir legal representative. Rev. H. J. Sandheim. in proposing the- adoption of the re pert and statement of ac- counts, said that they showed a record of steady work. He often found that in work of that description it was a very difficult thing to arouse interest in work which was carried on under humdrum circumstances. People only seemed to be interested in and moved by atrocities. The lar figures that were maintained in the reports did not always mean that there was an enormous amount of cruelty an d sufferirg, and people were apt to believe that the work of the society and the need of the society v as thus over-ecsa^garated. It was the n- WORJC OF PREVENTION AND GUIDANCE that was so important and occupied so little public attention. Mr. Daviu Harric seconded and said that they were fortunate in having such excellent secretaries and inspectors. The report was unanimously adapted. Major Bertie Perkins moved the re-elec- tion of the General Committee, substituting the names of the Mayoress, Dr. Arbcur Ste- phens, and Mr. John Powlesland for Mis. N r Ro,,iss, ar?d Miss Picton Turberville. Mrs. Rouss, and Miss Manley Dixon. Miss Stephens seconded, and this was carried. Mr. H. R. Summers, of tte head ce, London, gave an interesting review of the society's work. Mr. Joseph Hall, in moving a vote of thanks to the Mayoress for presiding and to the Mayor for granting the use of the room and providing tea, said that Mrs. Bertie Perkins. the Lalies' Committee. and Mr. Milbourne Williams were deserving of spe- cial thanks for their splendid work. The Mayoress had beem very kind to them in taking her husband's place, and she had very ably filled the office of chairman. Mra. M. B. Williams seconded. and the resolution was carried unanimously. The Mayoress returned thanks and com- mented upon the excellent attendance, de- spite the wretched weather. She invited all pxesent to take tea with her before they left.
