Something must be set aside each week to meet the needs of next week, next month, or the more distant future. The man who spends all his income is poor.

Social Service. CONFERENCE AT LLANDRINDOD. The Welsh School r-f Social Service was re- ormod at Llandrindod last week with an ex- cellent attendance of students. "The Problem of the Adolescent in Wales" was the subject for the first Session. Major Edgar Jones, M.A., Barry Intermcdi- ate School, who presided, said that in cdu. cation in the past too little attention had been paid to tho. boy as an individual. The problem of the dull boy was tho result of dealing with bulk rather than the unit. It would be a fatal error if the new schools set up under the Fisher Act were a roplica of the existing inter, mediate school. He hoped education authori- ties would not be afraid to set up a new type of rchool, for the interest of many pupils was found in their vocation. Differentialicn secmed to him to be the keyword for education in the future. They were dominated too much by the examination system, and he hoped tller-o would In a campaign for making the matricula- tion for the university a freer one. He failed to pee why music and art should not be matri. culation subiecte as well as mathematics: He warmly supported Sir Henry Jones's scheme for adult education, and expressed the hcpo that Wales would by great stress on late development in education. Dr. Abel Jones. H.M. inspector, gave a valu- able address on the adolescent and continuation school. The factors, he said, which influenced the adolescent were the home, church, and the Eisteddfod. Continuation schools should be advisory institutions rather than institutions for cramming, institutions for ivesigatlon rather than instruction, instructions which would create intellectual interest rather than Miotcv strict at ton tic* to a rigid syllp.,)" educational clubs rather than ordinary schools They must lead and inspire and not compel. Churches must do all they c^uld to help. NATIONAL IDEALS. "Pessnnt Culture and National Ideals" was the subject of discussion on Thursday. Pro. fessor W. Jenkyn Jones, M.A. (Aberystwyth), presided, and the discussion was conducted m Welsh. The Chairman said the question of a nation's culture was always important but there were special reasons why it was of excep- tional importance at present. There were opportunities in the way of new educational agencies and institutions within the reach of the Welsh ,people, and it was important th,at they should take full aJ- vantage of these. He referred to provisions such as the W.E.A. lectures provided by the universities, and advantages such as would be provided by the Council of Music of the University of Wales. The older institutions which ministered to the culture of the Welsh people were as effective as ever, and the right policy was tp remain loyal to what was valu- able in the old while taking full advantage of the new agencies. One of the old agencies, the Sunday School was said to be deteriorating. He. was anxious that the o]<j and valuable institution should be made more effective, and the only method of rendering it so was to set up in Wales a Srndav School Training College. low could untrained teachers be expected to be effective teachers when no Church vmuld listen for a minute to untrained teachers? Professor W. J. Gruffydd, M.A., (Cardiff) reiterated hie. view that there was a distinct difference in the nature of Welsh culture and English culture; that England by its nature was an aristocratic country, and Wales was a peasant country. The peasant ideal of Wales was that of service. The most valuable man in the Welsh community was the man who was willing to run for the doctor when somebody was ill. The Welsh peasant ideal was to be a good neighbour, to love a thing in the heart. Some had accused Welsh people of not laying sufficient emphasis -on the art of telling the truth. There was truth in the charge, but the Welsh naturally told the truth quite as rigidly as the English did. Truth was not the heritage of any single nation. Their service was to the democracy of Wales, and ,they must learn to be good servants of each lother, and to develop the Welsh ideal of being good neighbours. Subsequent speakers included the Revs. Tecwyn Evans. W. J. Nicholson, Portmadoc; and W. Thomas, a Welsh clergyman from Kent. The Rev. J. H. Howard said Welsh culture had been too parochial, too self-centred. Welshmen should have an outlook beyond their own country and their own nation. He was not satisfied with tha Welsh Party. Welsh politicians went to Westminster to get office. They did nqt corhpaie favcurably with the Irish Party. Mr. J. Hugh Edwards, M.P., pointed cut that there was a fundamental difference be_ tween the Irish Party and the Welsh Party. The Irish Party found its leaders in the Irish aristocracy, but the Welsh leaders sprang from Welsh pearoant-Henry Richard, Tom Ellis, Lloyd George, Samuel Evans. Every nation had tho members it deserved. The Irish mem- bers made sacrifices because the Irish people did. (Applause.) EXPERIENCES OF CHAPLAINS. At the Session on Friday, the Rev Thomas Richards, Newport, who was a chaplain with the 38th Division in France for three years, said a lot of the religion of pre.war days was scrapped in the dark days of the German ad- vanco. Even his own faith wavered a bit, but faith was re-established, and his faith in the moral government of the world was stronger than ever. The men believed in God, loved tho old hymns, and the shadow of the Cross was all over the battlefield. Theoretical reli- gion was largely scrapped, but in the big things cf life the men were honest, straight, and above-board. They told the truth in plain terms and played the game. They expected sincerity in preaching and worship, with no humbug about it at all. The Rev. Gwilym Williams, Newquay, ex- chaplain with the 53rd Division in Egypt and Palestine, said that many of the men had come back as firebrands Sor social betterments. As to religion, they had finished with denomina- tionalism for all time, but they stood for practical Christianity. Most of the men had come back with a hatred of war, and it behaved the churches to support all movements which would help to make war impossible. The Rev. J. Jones, Brynmawr, who was with the 38th Division as a chaplain, said the religious men were a numerous class, but a decided minprity. Thero were very few men who could be classed as atheists, but they had many wrong- ideas about religion. Tho men who' were indifferent to religion had pluck, courage, generosity, and friendship, and 'they knew debauchery was not the right thing. Some were frank materialists, and some were out for a fling, but they were a negligible number. Most were keen about social subjects .but few had clear views. They were unanimous in their condomnation of strikes, profiteers, and shirkers. They felt it a manifest injustice that they should be allowed to die for a shilling a day while shirkers got a pound a day. and profiteers made fortunes. Discharged soldiers would be solid against prohibition. Professor Gruffydd, Cardiff, said as Ion, as the management of the Church was in the hands of profiteering people, the men would not come back to them. The Rev. Richard Jones, Llandinam, appealed for a moro heroic Christianity, a fuller presentation of Christ and of the application of His teaching, and for a treatment of the Bible consistent with the assured results of criticism. Presiding at a meeting of the Welsh School of Social Service, Mr. Llewellyn Williams, K.C. said there was a sound of true revival in Waes. He felt it at the Homo Rule conference at Llandrindod Wells and again a.t the National Eisteddfod. It might be revolution in the right sense of the word, but he looked forward with hope and expectation to what the future would contain for their country. All he asked of Welshmon was not to cut adrift from the old things of the past. Let them root the future cf Wale in the best and most character- istic things in the life and history of the Welsh people. Addresses on social life in industrial villages and rural areas were given by the Rev. Fred J ones. B.A., Tra">rchy, Mrs. Silyn Roberts, Cardiff, and Mr. Higman, Y.M.C.A. WOMEN'S MEETING. There wa.s a lar-rc attendance at a women's public meeting. Mrs Coombe Tennant (Neath) presided, and at her suggestion it was decided to take immediate steps for unifying women's wo'k in Waler,, and to provide a. nlatform which shall be free from party politics and sects. Mrs Herbert Lewis said men were prepared give women a cordial welcome in adminis- trative work on public bodies. Welsh women needed to assert themselves and come forward as candidates at local elections. Mothers of families were badly needed in public work; had health, bad housing, bad conditions, and had use of leisure were at the root of most of the evils they had to combat in Wales. Dr. Helena Jones (assistant-medical officer, Rhondda) said that only as women made them- selves fit would authority be given to them. Thev must study the causes of evil. Every social question was a question for women as well as for men, and they must accept the rewonsibilitv of citizenship which had been laid upcn them. There must be no longer two moral code- one foremen and one for women. Things that were, tolerated in men wore not tolerated in women. That must come to an enr"¡. and there must be one moral code. for both sexes. Women had the right to demand purity aa well as men. HOITSING TN RURAL WALES. Mr. T. Alwyn Lloyd. L.R.T.B.A.. presided over a session devoted to "Housing in the Rural Areas of Wales." Mr Edgar Chappell stated that the rural housino- problem was, for economic reasons, more 3ifficult of solution "han housing m urban areas. The problem in rural Wales was not a problem of shortage so much as of deal- ing with insanitary houses. He 'hMl ro hefi.a- tion in sfl-yinsr that the Welsh rural labourer was far worse housed than the rural labourer of England or Scotland. The con- ditions in Pembrokeshire, South Cardiganshire and part of Anglesey weie oonsidoiubly worse than in the English counties. NYa.r-P, being a

(continued from previous column). pastoral country, required less labot: than the arable counties of linglm I, and the labour conditions were also ('r'J(ntly \oy djff.-ept. Half the farms in -Va Iou l. bour at all. Eight of the fifteen least densely populat-o-I counties in England and Wales were Welsh counties. He had only found one woman in Monmruthshire who did milking, and she was a Carmarthenshire woman. In some counties milking was entirely done by women. In Wales far more unmarried men wore eirlployed on farms than married. The principal cause of that was the low wages of the past. In Wales a large proportion of farmers were worse housed than their labourers Some houses were as vile and filthy as any he had ever been in. There were three phases of the problem which must be. considered —(1) the housing of farmers,, (2) the housing of single men labourers, (3) the horsing of mar. ried labourers. One of the difficul ties with regard to farmhouses was that no provision existed in the presen1. statutes for building new farmhousos. The single labourer predom- inated in Wales. Many of the boys were liou.d ov(4' coachJlOùrleh, stab-es, and! out- buildings. They were o1"oen wet all day, and liouf|3d ovc^" eoach.houFteis, stab-es, and! out- buildings. They were of'en wet all day, and there was ro provision for drying their clcthe3 at night. The possible remedies werc the provision of cottages with tnree or lour bed- rooms or the provision of hostels where half a dozen or more labourers could be housed. Rural housing conditions in Pembrokeshire and Cardi- ganshire were exceedingly bad. That was one reason for the high percentage of tuberculosis in those counties. He had known eight per- sons die in one house in the course of -.liree or four years. In the reconstruction of rural Wales they should have regard to in'coducing the village EVstem, which was so characteristic of England. Where -hat was not practicable they sliould restore holdings of four or five more acres to agricultural labourers. The Chairman dealt with the work of the Welsh Town Planning and Housing Trust, He appealed to churches and to chapels to give support to housing and reconstruction schemes. He strongly appealed for co-operation and good will, and suggested the provision of institutes or open spacer as war memorials. Mr. John Owen, Chester, said the strictures passed on farmhouses did not apply tv the northern counties of \Vale". If labourers were accommodated in villages they would often be too far away from their work. The provision of small holdings for labourers was the better way. Concurrently with '.he provision of better housing, there was need for education as to the proper use of houses. CLOSING SESSION. I The Welsh School of Social Service was closed with a Welsh public meeting on Friday even- i ing, when Mr. William George (Criccic^th) pre- sided over a large attendance. In the course -of his opening address, the Chairman speaking of the new outlook in Wales, said a. new vision of the meaning of the life had dawned on the nation's mind. Its point of view had been changed. Its valua- tion lof the things that mattered in life had been revised. The suggestion put forward was that Wales had recently gone through a great crisis in its history, and that in consequence its spiritual outlook was different from what it had been. Was that true or not? Let them preserve an open mind on that subject. Wales had had a system of elementary schools for fifty years, colleges for thirty years, secon- dary schools for a quarter of a century. Who could say what the effect of con- tinuous course of training had been 1n the spirit of the nation? For good or for evil, a great change had also taken placn in the people's attitude towards religion. The old theological discussions had ceased, deominational differences were ignored and the masses of the people were far less keen on the services of organised religious bodies than they used to 'be. That did not necessarily mean that things as. they were had come to be regarded by the people in a spirit of "Divine discontent." On the, top of all came the great war with its soul-cliurnin.9 experiences. Wales got its full share and it was hoped would also enjoy its share of the visions of a new heaven and 11- new earth. Wales was becoming more and more convinoed that she must henceforth claim more streniv- ously than ever her national right to work out her own salvation according to her own ideas,; both for her own sake and for the sake cf !1< her siater nation.

Dr. Rees, replying to a resolution passed at a previous meeting requesting him to re- move his residence from Aberystwyth to a cen ral part of L',anilar district, of which he is medical officer, wrote that he was giving it careful consideration and would send his reply in time for -he next meeting. On Jlhe Chairman's suggestion it was agreed to hold a special meeting of tho Relatives Contributions Committee for the purpose of revising ..he amounts of contributions made by relatives for the maintenance of paupers, particularly as the asylum expenses have in- creased considerably. The Chairman reported that a. :oint com- mi itee, representing the Board of Guardians and Rural Council 1:8d mei to concider the Clerk' salary. The previous recommendation was re- considered. and it was now understood that the would be satisfied if his total re- muneration was increased to £ 500. That would cover his services to the Guardians, Rural Council, Boarding Out Committee, and Assessment Committee. As that amount was unanimously agreed to by the joint committee, the diiii-man proposed that the Clerk's salary in resotct of the Board of Guardians (including the Boarding Out Committee should be £240. The salary for the Rural Council had been fixed at £ 185, and it was suggested that the salary for the Assessment Committee should be C75.-V.r. E. J. Evans seconded the pro- position, which was unanimously agreed to.

ALLEGED N|UISANCE.—With r(-reffnee to the report made by the Samitary Inspector a the recent meeting of Dolgellev Rn"al Corn- ell, a correspondent writes complaining of "he nuisance at Blue Gardens, Bontddu, and it is stated that the Tenants have suffered the. nuisance too long and intend taking further steps unless hare is an improvement. A concert was given on Wednesday week in aid of the Village Ad-vertising fund. The chair was taken by Mr. H. K Beale, Bryn- tirion, who takes great interest in the wel- fare of the place and thp social life of the inhabitants. Great kindness has been shown bv the family in allowing villagers and visi- tors freedom to walk over their lands and embankment, a privilege which is much ap- preciated as the walk commands magnificent river. valley, and mountain scenery. The concert which lasted over two hours was a great success. The chief simrers who came from Rhydymain. Dolgelley, Llanelltyd, and Barmouth, gave their services ft £ e A'vote. of thanks was proposed by Mrs. Holland, Caf r- diin, seconded by Mr. R Jones to the Chair, man and all who had taken part Before the end of the meeting "Cyrfalyn" read the following stanza: Boneddwr a'n noddwr ni—Tdyw Bea;e Od am bob daioni, Llywvdd Ilawen wna erni Bywyd a nerth i'u byd ni.

Poet's Corner. A TIDAL STREAM. I t on the rocks by the river deep, While the waters seaward flowed, And the foam-flecked wavelet swirled around As the rocks beneath, they showed. With the outward tide, the current strong Rushed wildly towards the sea. While here and there a streamlet turned Forced onward again to be And from the hidden depths below. An upward current rose Like liquid coming to the bo, And nowhere found repose. Outward bound like ourselves in youth. Resistance counting naught, As borne adown the stream of years Experience must be bought. With rough and tumble here and there. Pushed ruthlessly aside. Then caught again and rushed along Ere peacefully we ride Into the ocean wide and free, Where for a time wo sail. Until with growing age we find Our raft begins to fall. Then with the inward tide we turn, And Homeward-bound we find The weight of seas that press us on, Is cruel to be kind, As 'gainst the stream to part we go, Borne by resistless might Where for a time wo sail. Until with growing age we find Our raft begins to fall. Then with the inward tide we turn, And Homeward-bound we find The weight of sea^ that press us on, Is cruel to be kind, As 'gainst the stream to part we go, Borne by resistless might And dropping anchor, fall asleep To wake in endless light.
