LLANDILO TEACHERS' MEETING A meeting of the Carmarthenshire County Asso- ciation of Teachers was held at the National School, Llandilo, on Saturday last, the chair being occupied by Mr. J. H. Bowen, Lianelly. On the motion of Mr. Samways, Maesybont, seconded by Mr. Maurice Jones, Carmarthen, it was decided to co-operate in forming an associa- tion on the lines of the old South Wales District Union of Teachers. Mr. D. Morgan, Ffairfach Council School, was elected representative to attend a conference of rural teachers to be held in London during Christ- mas week. The versatility of Mr. P. J. Wheldon, of Carmar- then, is well-known, but at the meeting he some- what astonished the teachers by the unique know- ledge for an outsider that in tho course of an excellent address on the teacher and his work, tliac he displayed with his subject. It was the unani- mous opinion that the address was a marvellous one. Its note of sympathy with the teacher was a marked feature. It was, as he said, profound. Teachers were not men who made fortunes, but were laying up treasures for themselves which neither moth nor rust corrupted. Children had their weak points, and the Welsh child had them, as he had abundant opportunities of discovering. Teachers needed the sympathy of men like himself, who were not members of educational bodies, as they had the child, varied in alTL;s activities and character- istics, to deal with. He denied that the child was father of the man, and utterly condemned that old saying. Whatever the teacher did he should al- ways have in view the benefit of the child. He thoroughly believed that for the teachers better times were coming, though they might not come in his time or their time. Turning to the question of obtaining support for teachers for the Alltv- myuydd Sanatorium, of whidh Mr. WJhehfon Jst treasurer, he stated that those of them who had the control of the Institution were now in the proud position to be able to guage the result, and they were second to none in the kingdom. Con- sumption, he maintained, was beyond question an infectious disease, but numerous as the deaths from the scourge was at present, their children would live to see the day when a death from consumption would be a rare thing. Under the scheme of Mr. D. Davies, Llandinam, there would be a dispensary in every district, and a nurse to attend to cases in their initial stages. Now the difficulty was to find out cases in time, but there would be a medical man to examine persons gratuitously, who wished to be examined. Whatever other support they had if they were to fight the disease successfully they must have the co-operation of the teachers. They were in such an advantageous position to instil into the minds of the-r scholars knowledge necessary to guard against it. That the teachers might have an opportunity of seeing what was done at the Sanatorium he cordially invited them to hold one of their meetings at Alltvmvnvdd. He sat down amidst most enthusiastic and genuine applause. To a vote of thanks, which was proposed by Mr. C. P. Phillips, Llandilo, and seconded by Mr. J. Dew Ammanfe'wd. and supported by Mr. D. Morgan, Mr. Maurice Jones, Carmarthen, and the President, high eulogistic speeches were made. In replying to a vote of thanks, he also replied to a question by Mr. Price, Felinfoel, that the new scheme and the Sanatorium would be hand in glove, and would, in fact, be worked as one scheme. Subsequently a meeting of the Llandilo and Llandovery Teachers' Association was held. The chair was occupied bv Mr. J. Harris Thomas, Park- yrhyn, Ammanford. Mr. Rhys Nicholas was nominated for the post of vice-president of the N.U.T. Miss Hannah Williams, Mr. Nicholas, and Mr. Evan Davies were nominated for the executive. Miss Callard. Parkvrhyn: Miss F. A. Thomas, Ffairfach, and Mr. H. D. Thomas, B.A., wfcre elec- ted delegates to the conference at Aberystwyth. Mi ss Evans. Ammanford, who is about to enter into the bonds of matrimony, tendered her resigna- tion as secretary of the B. and O. Funds. On th nropositio" of M'ss N. Painter, L.L.A., seconded by Miss Thomas, a vote of thanks was accorded her for her services, and the hone ex. pr"=cod that be, future would be a happy one. My-g F. A. Thomas was appointed her successor pro tern.
