T I Teach? Salaries. corXTY COMMITTEE AND THE I FISHER GRANT. Carmarthenshire Education Commit- tee at Carmarthen yesterday decided to devote the whole of the Fisher grant, estimated to amount together with a con- tribution of £--F50 made by the committee to for the purpose of in- creasing teachers' salaries on a flat rate principle of £17 10s. per annum to certi- ficated teachers, £ 10 to uncertificated, and £5 to supplementary teachers, these increases to be in addition to the war bonuses granted in December, 191o, and January, 1917. The Chairman (Aid Ben Evans) moved the adoption of the above report, and Mr Mervyn Peel seconded. Dr. J. H. Williams moved an amend- ment that the question be referred back for further consideration. They had been told they were starting a new epoch in education, but it appeared to him that unfortunately the committee were follow- ing the sam; old retrograde routine. Car- marthenshire was on the bottom of the list of all counts in England and Wales in the matter of teachers' salaries. Mr. Thomas Thomas (Llangennech), seconded. Ald. David Evans said Dr. Williams took it for granted this was a new scale of salary, w hereas it had been made clear it was nothing of the kind, it was only a temporary arrangement. The amendment was lost, as was also another moved by Mr. Thomas Thomas in favour of a different allocation of the in- creases, and the committee's recommen- dations were adopted.

Infant Welfare - &-,
Infant Welfare & MORE NTRSES TO BE APPOINTED- I _u..u J. L ;1.. _d.L At the Carmarthenshire Health Com- mittee at Carmarthen on Tuesday Dr. J. H. Williams, Burry Port, presiding, the acting county medical officer (Dr. E. Cambria Thomas) presented a report on maternity and child welfare. He recom- mended that the scheme already adopted should be extended by the appointment of more nurses as health visitors. Two were already engaged in Llanelly and Amman Valley districts. Lady Howard said the decrease in the infant mortality rate at Llanelly in ID16 was 35.6, compared with 147 in Llan- dovery, and 162.5 in Kidwelly rural dis- tricts. A tremendous effort should be made to preserve child life. Mr. Mervyn Peel moved that the County Council be recommended to appoint at least four more nurses. It was admitted that the Scheme was doing untold good. Ald. H. E. B. Richards suggested ap- pointing six more nurses, with a view to increasing the number to 12 eventually. Rev. R. H. Jones moved that 10 nurses be appointed at once, and Lady Howard seconded. j Eventually it was decided to recom- mend the appointment of four additional nurses.
Potato Bread e
Potato Bread e RIGID ECONOMY NEEDED. I It is essential that rigid economy in I foodstuffs, especially in cereals and meat, should be practised during the coming winter months. One way of economizing in these staple foods is to make a greater use of potatoes. Two reasoned appeals for economy were made this week, one by Sir Arthur Yapp, the new Director of Food Economy, and the other by Mr. Sidney Webb, both of whom took as their text the coming world deficiency, a dearth which will be ex- perienced not only in food but in many other essential products. The Board of Education has asked local I education authorities Tor their co-oper- j fction with the Food. Production Depart- mene tnpcuring an increase in the num- fber of teachers of giving instruc- tion in gardening. A scheme j day classes for teacher-students is sug- gested.

Pay of the Police. 1 — AN ALL ROUND INCREASE. At their meeting this week, the Stand- ing Joint Committee abolished the pre- sent scandalously low wages rates of the police and decided upon an all round in- crease. After considerable discussion it was decided to increase the salary of the Chief Constable from £ 400 to £;:500 a year, with £.30 for expenses, and in regard to other branches of the constabulary to adopt the Glamorgan scale of pay, according to which Deputy-chief-constable John Evans was granted an increase from E230 to £ 260, plus £50 for travelling expenses, as before. With regard to superinten- dents, their present minimum of £ 180 was changed to £ 175, and their maximum of-t220 raised to £240, with £ 50 for travelling expenses, as before. Inspectors were granted increases verying from £ 10 to £ 20 a year; sergeants Is. 2d. to 3s 6d. per week, and constables Is. 2d. to 2s lid per weck, In addition all grades from tho deputy-chief-constable downwards will revive a. war bonus of "25 per cent.

The Bench fined each of the defendants C3.

Salary of the Magistrates' Clerk ——— 0 .——— A GREAT INCREASE OF WORK. At the meeting of the Standing Joint Committee on Tuesday the Finance Com- mittee recommended that the salary of Mr. W. W. Brodie, magistrates' clerk, Llanelly, be increased from £ 700 a year to £ 825, and that of Mr. Walter L. Smith, magistrates' clerk, Ammanford, from £ 180 tot 250. Col. W. C-wyrme Hughes, Glancothi, said it was only three years ago that the salaries of magistrates' clerks were ad- justed. He would require strong reasons to support the recommendation. The Chairman said the work in connec- tion with the Llanelly petty sessional division had greatly increased through the establishment of a certain factory, and he thought the increase of work more than justified the recommendation. The recommendation was then adopted.

t BABY'S MILK FROM ONE COW. I Carmarthenshire Dc-otsr's Views. I In his report on the health of Car- marthenshire, Dr. E. Cambria Thomas, acting county medical officer, refers to the old idea that it was advisable to feed nn infant on the milk cf one cow, con- sidered to be the healthie.it amongst the herd, which had been cue cause of death from tuberculosis in many a baby. It was now believed that it was safer to give the milk of several cows, as the dose of tuberculosis was milder. It was im- possible to form an opinion as to the free- dom of a cow from tuberculosis by its general appearance, so that every person stood the risk of being infected some time or ot 1 I tIme or at leI'.

They in England and Wales had not a sufficient volume of students passing t-o the univer- sities—the brains of the country were in- sufficiently nourished, and they must see to it in the future that the number of students passing to the universities was considerably augmented. Too many chil- dren left school before the age of 16. This meant that the brains of the country were insufficient in quantity, although the quality was equal to that of any other country; but if they were to hold their own in the comity of civilized nations they must increase the amount.

According to the final recommendation of the Boundary Commission just issued, Wales, including Monmouthshire, secures I one additional seat-that is 35 instead of 34.

I Parcel Delivery. j
Parcel Delivery. j » HOW THE PUBLIC ARE INCONVENIENCED. The "Star" has received scores of com- plaints from householders in the upper part of the town, against the action of the G.W .R. Co. in stepping the delivery of parcels in those and other districts of I Llanelly. From inquiries made, it ap- pears that the G.W.R. Co. have done I away with one of the parcel delivery carts, with the result that only the business part of the town is now served. This means that any parcels addressed to New road, Ty'rfran, Glenalla, Old road, etc., are kept at the station and have to be fetched by those for whom they arc intended. The inconvenience thus caused t may be easily realized. In the case of parcels containing perishable food, it be- comes an actual loss, because after such parcels arrive, a postcard is sent to the I address, and this is not received until the next day. Why the G. W.R. Co. should have adopted this retrograde measure no one seems to know. If it were caused by the calling up of the drivers for military ser- I vice there would be some excuse, but this is not the case. It cannot, too, be a question of economy, because a small fortune will be spent on postcards ad- vising the public that parcels are await- ing them. It will take a clerk, too, near- ly all his time to deal with this, and to hand out the parcels when they are called for. One suggestion is that the brilliant idea has struck one of the G.W.R. officials that the more the popu- lation of a town grows, the less need there is of parcels deliveries.

Theatre Licenses. -4. CHARITY PERFORMANCES AND THE PROCEEDS. A meeting of the County Licensing Committee was held at Llanelly on Thursday when Aid. Nathan Griffiths presided. Mr. J. Jones who represented Mr. Leo Vint, appealed for renewal of the license in respect of Vint's Palace. Rev. Hugh Jones inquired where the proceeds of the last charity performances -were sent to. Mr. Jones: Vint's Palace was not opened on Good Friday. It was opened on Xmas Day, and the balantc sheet was sent to the Committee who were not pleased with this or the other balance sheets from the places of amusement. The amusement caterers did not care to conform with the regulations laid down by the committee so that they did not open the places of amusement on Good Friday. The Chairman: The condition was that they were to hand over the whole of the proceeds to charity. Mr. Jones: Yes, and there was some question as to expenses. It was decided to grant, the license. The Chairman raised the question as to over-crowding at the various places of amusement, and it was decided to ap- point a sub-committee with a view of see- ing that the rules on the point were ob- served.
BERWICK HAMLET AND THE COUNTY…
BERWICK HAMLET AND THE COUNTY COUNCIL. To the Editor of the "Star." Sir, Two letters have recently appeared in your columns criticizing the steps taken to fill the vacancy in the Berwick division created by the death of Mr. Hughes. It is quite clear that the writers are disappointed at the choice made by a largo meeting of voters held recently. This was one of the most representative meetings ever held in the district, and ll- though it is quite true that the meeting was not called for this purpose, there was a general feeling that no better oppor- tunity could be provided for bringing for- ward the filling of the vacancy on the County Council. What is the grievance of the two writers ? Are they afraid of the popular vote ? I am certain that if a meeting of the parish were called for next week to nominate a successor to Mr. Hughes there would not be a score present Such a meeting would be a farce, whereas tho one already held was thoroughly re- presentafcive of all shades of opinion. No sir, the real grievance of the writers is that Mr. David Harry was chosen, instead of their own particular favourite. It is not for me to sound the praises of Mr. Harry. He is well known in the dis- trict, and has the advantage of already having sat on the County Council. He knows our requirements and will once I again, I fl, sure, as he has done before, make an admirable representative. I am, etc., r Llwynhcndv, Llwynhcndv, AN ELECTOR. II October 11th, 1917.

CENEROSI-IY OF LADY HOWARD, j At the meeting of the Guardians a vote of thanks was accorded Lady Howard for her treat to the inmates of the Work- house, who recently visited Cilymaen- llwyd, and to Lady Stepney for her an- nual treat, which was held a few days later. The Chairman (Mr. T. Jones) said they were very much indebted to Lady Howard for her continued kindness to the inmates. Lady Howard, in thanking the Guard- ) ians, said that she recently visited the Workhouse and was informed hy a blind inmate tht it was years ago since they last had an outing. She felt very much ashamed of herself to think that the poor people had been overlooked for so long a time, and on that account ar- ranged the outing.
