ANNUAL MEETING OF THE BARRY DISTRICT TEACHERS' ASSOCIATION. The annual meeting of the members of the Barry District Teachers' Association was held on Satur- day afternoon last at Cadoxton Board School, when Mr T. Ewbank presided, and there were also present—Miss Fleming, Miss E. V. Llewellyn, Miss M. J. Morgan, Miss Macnab, Miss Merriman, Miss Lewis, Messrs T. Higman. J.E. Thorpe (secretary), H. E. Whitehouse, J. E. Wensley, F. W. Siidmersen, &c.—The Secretarv read a letter from the National Union of Teachers, stating, among other sugges- tions, that the executive desired to suggest that this association should authorise its committee to appoint standing sub-committees of assistant teachers, these standing sub-committees to have power to add to their number from the members of the association connected with special interests. -The Chairman remarked that as the association was so small it would not be advisable to form other committees, as it might have the effect of at length breaking up its constitution.-The letter was allowed to lie on the table. REPRESENTATION ON THE WELSH UNIVERSITY. The Chairman announced that he was unable to attend the conference of the Glamorgan and Carmarthen District Union, held at Swansea on Saturday week, for the nomination of representa- tives on the Welsh University Board and other business, and Mr Higman had kindly promised to take his place.—Mr Higman said he attended the meeting, which was a thoroughly representative one, and Mr Tom John, Llwynypia, and Miss Rule, Cardiff, were nominated for South Wales. The teachers in North Wales were to add another name. He (Mr Higman) was sorry there was not more competition, and thought the ladies should j take much more interest in the matter. A feeling was expressed that" certificated teachers" should be substituted for head teachers" in connection with the nominations, it being set-down that the selec- tions would be made by head teachers." for the purposes of this election, however, it was impossible to do anything to bring about a change in this direction, but the matter would be considered at a meeting of the District Union. The election of six local X.U.T. representatives on the Council of the Cardiff University College was referred back to the District Union, and arrangements were afterwards made for the annual meeting of the Glamorgan and Carmarthen District Union to be held at Neath in March.—The President remarked the report was very satisfactory, especially with regard to certificated teachers being allowed to vote, and he considered it was only right that they should be recognised in this way. (Hear, hear.) THE AFFILIATION WITH CARDIFF ASSOCIATION. The following resolution was received from the Cardiff Teachers' Association with regard to their affiliation with the Barry Association "That our secretary be instructed to communicate with the Barry Association stating that the Cardiff Association is desirous of continuing the affiliation between the Cardiff and Barry Associations, pro- vided that, in the arrangements made re affiliation, a clause be inserted to allow, in any debatable matter, the vote to be taken in separate associa- tions at the joint meeting.After a few remarks with regard to the rules in connection with the affiliation, Mr Higman moved that the affiliation be continued, and that a copy of the original rules be supplied to the Cardiff Association. — The President seconded, and the resolution was carried unanimously. REPORT AND BALANCE SHEET. Mr J. E. Thorpe said he was sorry to say there had been a decrease in membership during the past year, there being now only twenty-seven members. Everything had been done during the year to gain strength, especially by affiliation with the Glamorgan and Carmarthen District Union. Two meetings had been devoted to the considera- tion of a scheme for better attendance of the children at school, and he thought the result had been very satisfactory. Excellent papers had been read by members during the year, and one case of legal proceedings had been taken by the associa- tion, which had proved successful. With regard to their financial position, he was pleased to state there was a satisfactory balance in hand, us well as in connection with the recreation fund. Refer- ring to the benefits to be derived from affiliation with the association, he pointed out that the association had already done much to improve the position of the teaching profession. (Hear, hear.) -The President said it was a deplorable fact that there were so many teachers in the district not connected with the association, and he thought a special endeavour should be made to induce non-members to join. (Hear, hear.)- Having complimented the secretary, Mr Ewbank proposed that the report be adopted.—Mr Higman seconded, and expressed regret that Mr ,E. T. Williams (the president-elect of the association) was unable to be present that day, and he (Mr Higman) would like an expression of sympathy to go forth from that meeting to Mr Williams.—The President concurred, and a vote was accordingly passed. REVISION OF RULES. The rules of the association were read and alterations made therein. ELECTION OF OFFICERS. The election of president was adjourned owing to the absence of Mr E. T. Williams, who, by order of rotation, will be president for the coming year. -Mr Higman proposed a vote of thanks to the retiring president, and said the members knew Mr Ewbank had done his utmost for the association during his year of office. (Hear, hear.)-Miss Fleming seconded, and the vote was unanimously carried, Mr Ewbank suit- ably returning thanks.—Mr J. E. Rees, head master of Barry School, was appointed vice- president and Mr J. E. Thorpe was re-elected secretary and treasurer, a vote of thanks being accorded him for his able services during the year. —The following were elected on the general committee :—Miss Fleming, Miss Llewellyn, Miss Lowther, Messrs T. Higman, H. E. Whitehouse, R. T. Evans, and F. W. Siidmersen. ELECTION OF REPRESENTATIVES ON THE CARDIFF UNION. Messrs T. Higman, E. T. Williams, and J. E. Thorpe were elected representatives for this association under the Barry and Cardiff affiliation scheme. THE TENNIS CLUB. A meeting of the tennis club of the association was afterwards held, when a satisfactory report was presented, and arrangements made for the coming season. SOCIAL GATHERING. Tea was provided by the lady teachers of Cadoxton School, which was followed by an enjoy- able social evening.
