BARRY PROGRESSIVES AND ST. HELEN'S SCHOOL TEACHERS. To the Editor of the "BARRY DOCK NEWS." DEAR SIR,—Judging from your report of the last meeting of the Barry District Council, our brave and valiant Progressives are fighting the teachers in St. Helen's School because these teachers do not happen to belong to some teachers' organisation, the N.U.T. This N.U.T. has taken up the humiliating position of looking on, whilst the headmaster of the Roman Catholic School, who is seemingly a member of this imbecile body, has had to wait to have his battle fought before Judge Owen by one of the assistant teachers. What can a Trade Unionist think of an organisation which treats its members so shamefully 1 Is it worthy of the name of a Trades Union ? I have, how- ever, learnt on most reliable authority that most of the officers of the Barry branch were last year either Passive Resisters, Welsh Revolters, or their sympathisers. So can any one wonder that the assistant teachers in the Roman Catholic School did not join it ? Last week Mr Lloyd George was shouting at Bala, No Compromise This week we hear that the Barry Progressives are trying to arrange a fresh compromise. If the "Progressives" are sincere in their wishes for a settlement, let them first pay these teachers who have not received a farthing since last January. Unless they do so the present move can be put down as an insincere, cowardly, and slim dodge to gain time. The great aim of the Progressives" is to starve these three teachers into subjection, and for that object more time is wanted, hence the talk about another compromise. The Progressives are reduced to such straits in trying to find excuses for persecuting these teachers that one Councillor lately tried to justify the attempt to starve the teachers by saying that they were not paid lest they should be contami- nated in the Roman Catholic School. Really, Sir, this is far too funny for words. Fancy, these teachers are starved for their own welfare, and they did not know it. How ungrateful they must be, not to go on their knees and thank the Progressives Let the managers and every friend of the Roman Catholic School take up the Lloyd Georgian cry. No Compromise," and remember that the "Progressive" game is "Delay and Starvation."—Sincerely yours, NOXAS.
