Substitution Scheme. Mr. W. James Howells, Abercynon, wrote that he had been discharged from the Army under the provisions of the Substitution Scheme, and he applied for a post under the Mountain Ash Education Committee. He was a certi- ficated teacher, and when he enlisted ho was in the employ of the Glamorgan Education Committee, having failed to obtain an appointment locally because there was no vacancy. In reply to questions the Director said that Howells had been to France, but was discharged owing to being in a low medical category. Mr. Hall: Have we any vacancies?— Yes, one or two. Mr. T. W. Jones moved that he be appointed temporarily, and this was agreed to.
Eli SERCHUS GOFFAWDWRIAETH Am Frivate Augustine James, 1st Batt. Welsh Guards, yr hwn a laddwyd mewn brwydr yn agos i Ypres, Ffraine, Sul, Ebrill 16eg, 1916, yn 26 mlwydd oed. Pan oedd Pase a'i haul belydrau Yn daenedig dros y Cwm, Ar adenydd siomedigaeth Dygwyd i ni'r newydd trwm, Fod Augustine wedi syi-thio Draw yn Ffrainc, ar flaen y gad, Goreu'i fywyd rodd yn aberth Tra yn ymladd dros ei wlad.

Pan oedd Prydain mewn cyfyngder. Ac yn galw'i bechgyn glan, Parod oedd Augustine anwyl I wynebu grym y tan; Aetli yn wrol i'r ymdrechfa, Blodeu i'enctyd ar ei wedd, Ond nid oes yn aros heddyw Dim'ond darlun bach o'i fedd. Hiraeth sydd yn llethu'r galon, Adgof sydd yn gwelwi'r wedd, Ac mae cariad lieddyw'n methu Planu blodyn ar ei fedd; Os aderyn bach o Gymru Heda draw i diroedd Ffrainc, Gofyn wnaf os wnei di ganu Uwch ei fedd dy felus gainc.

Mountain Ash Education Committee. I On Tuesday, Mr. Griffith Evans in the chair. Present: Mrs. W. G. Wil- liams, Mrs. rr W. Millar, Messrs. W. Davies, John Powell, "V. Lamburn, G. H. Hall, Chas. Maddox, James Evans, Noah Bowles, W. Millar, Dd. Rogers, T. W. Jones, Bruce Jpnes, Surgeon Major H. D. Morgan, J.P., Thomas Jones, J.P., with Mr. Alfred Morgan (Director).
Attesting and Half Salaries. Mr Bruce Jones raised a question dis- cussed at the last meeting, whether a young man named Edwards, Aber cynon, who was joining the Army on the attainment of his 18th birthday, was entitled to the half salary granted by the Committee.. Mr. Jones had asked the Director to report, and Mr. Morgan now reported that he under- stood the young man had attested. The Clerk (Mr. Pincombe) had also been asked for a report, but that report had not come to hand. Dr. Morgan asked if there was any official confirmation of the statement that he had attested. The Director said he had been given the date of attestation. It was agreetl that the half salary t)e paid conditional upon official confirm- ation being forthcoming that the young man had attested.
Damage to Schools. The Director reported that Aber- eynon Girls' School had been broken into by young boys 8—-10 years of age, and damage had been committed. rlhe police had obtained the names of the boys. Mr. J. L. 'YDy,,boetti Schools, reported damage to school windows, and the caretaker of York Street School, Miskin, wrote that a great mess had been done by youths who had been seen on the premises playing cards. The Director was authorised to prose- cute in every case where the names could be obtained, and to offer a re- ward to persons who gave information leading to conviction. Mr. Brucc Jones suggested that the Diiector should instruct the teachers to instil into the minds of the children under their charge the wickedness of such things. He added that terrible depredation had been carried on at Abereynon Colliery by boys.
Food Economy. r Permission was given to have leaflets distributed dealing with Food Economy. Dr. Morgan Can we add to that pro- gramme that we drink less as well as eat less? (Laughter.) .N,lipr Bruce Jones: It is all very well for Dr. Morgan to speak like that. He has got his cellar well stocked, but what about the poor working man" (Renewed laughter.)
Precept. A precept was ordered to be signed by the overseers for £ 9,700 for educa- tion purposes.
Educational Reconstruction. Programmes dealing with educational reconstruction after the war had been submitted by the N.U.T.; the .Workers' Educational Association, and the Na- I tional Association of Head Teachers.— Mr. Hall said they could not tackle those schemes to-day, and moved that they lie deferred until the members had time to peruse the programmes.—This *• mrse was agreed to.
Non-Committal. At the last meeting the Workers' Educational Association invited the Committee to send delegates to their conference. it was then decided to ask the L.G.B. whether the committee had power to pay the expenses of such delegates. The L.G.H. now wrote to say they were not prepared to decide the point, but that the Auditor would deal with the question when the. ac- counts would be audited. The Clerk had also reported, and he was of opin- ion that the proposed conference was not strictly a conference of Education Authorities, but that the Auditor had sole discretion in the matter to allow for or surcharge the amount spent. Mr. J. Powell said the replies were ies very non-committal. Mr. Bruce Jones moved that the matter be referred back to the Clerk, and Mr. Rogers seconded.—Carried. It was carried by a majority that the Chairman and Director attend the annual meeting of the Association of Education Committees. Secondary Education.—The commit- tee endorsed a resolution sent by Hrig- house Education Committee that Part Tinee Authorities should have control of Secondary Education. Appointments.—There were five ap- plications for the post of organiser of Physical Training. Miss Annie Rogers, Ynysybwl, was appointed, at a com- mencing salary (as advertised) of tl20, raising by annual increments of Elo to 1: 1,50. Councillor D. Rogers left the room and did not vote while the com- mittee made the appointment.—There were two applications for the post of lady shorthand-typist for the Educa- tion Office.-Miss Elsie G. Stuart, Coy- church, near Bridgend, was appointed. War Savings.—The following item was on the agenda: "To consider a suggestion from the Mountain Ash Local War Savings Association relating to the granting of a War Savings holi- day to the schools. It was resolved to grant a day's holiday to each school where the children take a number of 1.5s. (id. certificates per annum equal to the number of children attending that school.
MOUNTAIN ASH POLICE COURT. Thursday, April 12th.—Before Messrs. Thomas Jones (chairman), Grifiitil Evans and J. K. Brooks. Drunks.—Michael Walsh and Henry James Padfield were fined 13s. each, or 14 days, for being drunk and dis- orderly in Oxford Street, Mountain Ash.
A Desperate Character." David Woods, a discharged. soldier hailing from Ferndale, was charged with being drunk and disorderly in Cardiff Road, Aberdare, on April 9th, and further with assaulting P.C. Brad- shaw whilst in the execution of his duty. The constable stated that Woods was outside the Hose and Castle at about 8.30 in the evening, indulging in the use of very bad language, and in a verv drunken condition. He refused to go and said: You put a finger on me and I will blow your guts out with the revolver I have in my pocket." Several civilians came to witness's assistance, and the defendant, who kept on kicking and hitting out in every direction, was got to the Police Station in a tramcar. Witness received some of the blows and kicks. Replying to the Clerk, defendant said: "I am very sorry, sir. It is the first time for me to get drunk since 1 was discharged from the' Army. Supt. Rees said that defendant came from Ferndale, and there were 36 con- f victions for various offences recorded against him.- He had served in the Army under an assumed name, and was discharged with an indifferent character. The Superintendent de- scribed defendant as being a desperate character. Defendant was fined 13s. or 14 days for drunkenness, and 40s. or a month for the assault. Unlicensed Dog. Edward Roberts was fined 7s. 6d. for not having a licence for his dog. Foul Chimney. John Gerrin was fined 2s. 6d. for allowing his chimney to he on fire.
Unsubdued Lights. Victor Freed, who did not appear, was summoned under the provisions of the lighting order for not subduing the light at his premises, 52 Oxford Street, Mountain Ash, over an hour after time. P.C. Thomas stated that when spoken to defendant expressed his- regret and explained that he had left the servant in charge.—Fined 10s.
Magistrate and Tradesmen.Obstructors. Lionel Schwartz was summoned for causing an obstruction in Oxford Street, Mountain Ash. P.C. Kingdom stated that packing cases and a chest of drawers occupied the whole of the pavement outside tt e defendant's premises, and for half-an- j hour people had to walk off the pave- ment to the road owing to the ob- struction. A young woman appeared in Court and explained that the effects were got out of the way as quickly as possible, aud there was no intention of causing an obstruction. In fining defendant 10s., the Chair- man remarked that there was a general complaint with reference to the blocking of the pavements in Mountain Ash, and if the practice was continued the Bench would have to inflict very heavy- I fines.
Sunday Poaching at Llanwonno. Thomas Jenkins, Richard Jenkins, I Thomas Pearce, and Morgan Parfitt, all of Tylorstown, were summoned for tres- passing in pursuit of game at Dduallt Farm, Llanwonno. Mr. Spickernell, Pontypridd, was for the defence, which was an alibi in each case excepting that of Parfitt, who pleaded guilty. Peter Johnson, farmer, said that on Sunday, March 2oth, he saw the de- fendants poaching on his land, the game rights of which were held by Lord Aberdare. The men had a number of ferrets and half-a-dozen greyhounds. Replying to the Clerk There was a good hit of game on the land. Witness, continuing, said that when lie .saw the men he was some distance 11 awav.-Cross-examined: It was 11 in the morning when he .saw the men on the breast of the mountain, and it was almost 3 miles from Tylorstown. He went for assistance, and returned m about two hours. Mr. Spickernell How close were you to them -Clo:e enough to he bit ny one of the dogs. (Laughter.) Mr. Spickernell: That was close to the dog. Witness admitted that when he ac- cused the men they indignantly denied having been poaching, and one of them "who had not been summoned by mis- take, and who was a bigger blackguard than the rest," threatened to Knock his whiskers off if he said they had been poaching. A. Johnson and Wm. Dd. Thomas corroborated. The former said lie -aine quite close to the men. The two Jenkinses and Pearce, in the witness-box, denied emphatically that they were on the mountain that morn- ing. It was after dinner when they went out, and they then proceeded to the yard of Tylorstown Colliery. They were approa.ched at about 3 by the farmer at the foot of the mountain, and denied having been poaching. Fred J. Duckett and Thomas John Thomas, electricians at Tylorstown, ) were called, and spoke to seeing the Jenkinses and Pearce on the colliery premises at the time when it was al- leged they were on the mountain. Llewelyn Jones, Pontygwaith, stated that the men were on the colliery yard at the time when witness observed a "chase" on the mountain side; this was at 2.30. The defendant Parfitt, who pleaded guilty, testified that the other three de- fendants were not in his company at all. Replying to the Clerk, witness said he could probably tell the names of some of the men who were with him. The Bench gave the three defend- ants the benefit of the doubt and dis- missed the summonses against them. in fining ParfiLt 20s., the Chairman re- marked that he had a very bad record, hut he had not been before the Court for a good length of time.
COMMUNAL KITCHENS. 'The Aberdare Urban District Coun- cil has embarked upon an experiment which, at the present time, is interest- ing, and in the near future, may he of vital importance to our district, name- ly, the establishment of Communal Kitchens. The objects in view are two- fold-fil-t, the conservation of food supplies and secondly, the provision of wholesome and tasty meals at nominal prices. Councillor T. Walter Williams has the honour of initiating the move- ment. His suggestion was enthusias- tically approved by the District Coun- cil, who appointed a strong and repre- sentative committee to act in conjunc- tion with him in organising the scheme. This committee met at the Town Hall on Thursday last, there being present: Councillors T. W. Williams (in the chair), Wm. Thomas, E. Stonelake, and Joseph Martin, with Mr. T. Botting, 7' Director of Education; Mesdames T. Walter Williams, F. Rose Davies, .J. H. Bruton, J. R. Thomas, and Miss Griffiths. The prices chargecl for the meals will he sufficient to cover all the expenses connected with the purchase of provisions and the preparation there- of. There is, therefore, an entire ab- sence of "something for nothing" ele- ment. Again, it is equally free from what is called the "taint of pauper- ism." The purchaser will pay a fair price for what he or she obtains. With the. co-operation of the Education Com- mittee, the first experiment by the Communal Kitchens Committee was carried out at one of the cookery cen- tres. The success of this experiment was such as to justify the committee in embarking upon an extended trial. For a period of one month the Cookerv Centre at the Park School will be util- ised for the preparation and supply of dinners which, although cheap, will .'»e highly nutritious and especially suited to the requirements of growing children. It may stagger householders, who are worried how to make ends meet in these times of ever-increasing prices of necessaries, to know that such dinners can be provided for the small charge or fourpence per head. Although at first the main effort is being directed to the provision of meals for children attend- ing the Trecvnon Schools, the com- mittee entertain much more ambitious schemes, which will cater for the gen- eris! public. But it is thought desir- able to make a modest start and to gain valuable experience from the experi- ment now about to be undertaken, so that the committee may embark upon the greater scheme with confidence. All services iji connection with the Com- munal Kitchens will be rendered free of charge, as this service is regarded as a National Service on the part of the women who. will volunteer to do it. Councillor T. Walter Williams has undertaken to address public meetings and explain the objects of the move- merit.

Dear Sir,—Will you kindly inform the members of the Aberdare Valley Goll ("inl), of whicli J am their professional, that I am sale and well, and going on splendid.

Sir,—The waste of child life continues to shame our Christianity. 150,000 children have to be protected in our Christian country every year—not from wild animals hut from their own parents. The Director of the National Society lor the Prevention of Cruelty to Children tells us that it is due to drink. The Liverpool Medical Officer of Health says that, lamentable as is the mortality from drinking, it is relatively insignificant in comparison with the sufferings of children entailed by the drunkenness of those in whose custody they are. Does it not behove every Christian woman to sign the pledge: Every victim of drink was some mother's boy or girl. Yours, etc., M.S.L.
• ox<t;rXIXG ( :onS< TENtious OBJECTORS. Mr. Editor,—Please grunt ine a little space ju your paper to refer to the leniency given by the Trihnnal- to con- scientious objectors. I a case before the A1>erdare Tribunal on March 30th of a young man, 19 years of age, appealing for exemption on religious grounds. T may say that hundreds, nav thonsands.coutd hold such views, but even ministers of God's word have given their all, and in many instances have accompanied brave Tommies when going "over the top." Also a patriotic feeling has brought thousand", to the flag from "Sweet Herdar" to taee the murderous Huns. I ask such young men, "Where would they or we be now if we voted b stay at iue, aii(I what should we look like?" [Jave they not read of the barbarity and cruelty of the Huns towards the poor defenceless women and children. I have seen with my own eyes, and spoken to, a young woman of 19, who had been brutally outraged by some enemy soldiers. Afterwards they stabbed her in the centre of her breast, leaving a gaping wound six inches long, and also threw powder in her face, which caused her eyelashes and eyebrows to become entire- ly bare. Her sister, who had en- deavoured to help her to resist the out- rage, had both her hands cut off as a penalty. This is only one instance of their foul and cruel deeds committed on the weaker sex. Now, young men, what would you do if such butchers in- vaded this country and visited Aberdare? Would you look on and see your mothers or sisters subjected to such callous deeds<? The above is quite true, no exaggeration whatever. I don't think that your conscience would object to you killing any Hun who committed such acts. Thousands of men have given up good positions, and have gone to avenge these poor people. Now. let us all join together to fight the foe what- ever views we hold, if we love our homes and dear ones. There are plenty of men yet who have no families or dependents. Let those that are of military age join and give a chance to the aged, and es- pecially those who had to go out more than once to face the foe. I quite agree with Mr. Tyssul Davies who said, "If the country is worth living in it is worth fighting foi,Yours, AGE 40.
CONSCIENTIOUS OBJECTORS AT PENDERYN. Sir,—Our attention has been called to a report in your columns of certain re- marks made by Mr. Tys, ml Davies at a recent meeting of the Aberdare Tribunal. He referred to the con- scientious objectors employed at Pen- deryn as a very undesirable lot of in- dividuals, many of whom laughed and scoffed at "willing soldiers" and used language which no religious person would use. We wish, on behalf of the men here, to repudiate these statements' most emphatically. AVhile we hold all war to be wrong and. therefore, consider the profession of 'the soldier to be un- necessary and its continuance an evil, we do not "laugh and scoff" at those who think otherwise and who are pre- pared to sacrifice their lives for their ideals. We are hopeful that there will be more objectors to war as a result of the present conflict, but we have sufficient sense and sufficient regard for the sacred principle of conscience to realise that laughing and scoffing are the methods of the charlatan or the fool. Mr. Davies' statement is bristling with inaccuracies. He is quite wrong in saying that 30 objectors are housed in Penderyn. Our number has never exceeded twenty, and of that twenty, "a lot," to quote Mr. Davies' classic ex- pression, are so religious that lather than violate the principles which they profess they have endured the ignominy of prison and an infinite amount of laughing and scoffing. When the huts were being buiit we were away at work, so far away that Air. Davies could neither see nor hear us. Who then made these "blood-boiling" remarks? We submit that they are pure figments ot' the imagination, and that they have no basis in fact.—We are, yours faith- fully, 1'. A. Jones, Chairman; E. H. AVilsoii, Hon. Secretary: Herbert A. Davies, Harold Davies. David Lewis, T. G. Williams (Men's Committee).
