CLERKS AND RECRUITING. Lady Clerks to be Engaged in Preference ( to Young Men. The Glamorgan County Council, under the presidency of Mr. J. Brandy Jenkins, b,-Id zt I'l eet; g on r held a meeting on Thursday, when Lord Abo-rdare caiied attention to u recom- m f-, n d. tior, of the education committee to add four second-class clerks, one junior clerk, and two female typists to the de- partment of the chief education official. i-le said he deprecated the offer of em- ployment to young who ought to be offer- ing themselves tor the service to their j country, and expressed the opinion that the positions vacant might well be filled by female clerks. Alderman R. Lewis suggested that with I" that expression of opinion the minute should be referred back to the committee Lord Aberdare said he had expressed IliA opinion, and ho did not see why the Council should not deal with the matter now. Dr. T. H. Morris (the chairman of th<? committee) said if the minute were re- ferred back at the present juncture thl\ I committee would be placed in an awk- wrd position, because they were very I' short-handed in the office, and the work was in a backward condition. Person- ally, he had no objection to the clerkk; I being women, and suggested that the difficulty could be overcome by adding the words "all of whom may be women." Several members expressed the opinion that the clauso should be compulsory, and should read "shall be women." The Rev. D. H. Williams pointed out that lioiB? of the candidates might not be of recruitable ag?, and it would be a p ty to rule them out. Lord Aberdare said in that ease he should raise no objection, aud after fur- ther discussion the amendment suggested by the chairman of the education com- mittee was adopted.
