S. WINIFRED'S SCHOOL, BANGOR. NEW BUILDING FUND BAZAAR. On Tuesday afternoon a large com- pany assembled at S. Winifred's School, Bangor, at a bazaar organised by the gir's of the school in aid of the new school building fund, among those present be- ing the Dean of Bangor, Mr H.. U. Trench, Rev. J. C. Morrice, vuar of St. Mary's; Mr Trevor Hughes, ('ood Helen, Carnarvon; Rev. C. W. Barlow, Rev. J. Hughes William,s, Mrs Davies, The Cot- tage; "Mrs E. J. Lloyd and Miss Wil- liams, Mrs Foster, Llanfairfcchan, Dr. CorbN (I wo:, and Mrs Owen, and others. Each form in the had made if- self responsible for a stall, and in itdik- 1,101, ss L. Doman (sister of the head- .JPistmss) had a stilli. The stalls included an Art Stall, a, Plain Needlework Stall and a Flower Stall, and all were very and a ]" J o"-(,,r Stal.1, iully furnished with the usual bar equipments of clothing,etc. The outstanding foaturc of the func- tion was the opening ceremony, one of the most charming functions ever sceiiin Ln gor. The "chairman" was Miss Peneilope Hughes (daughter of Mr and Mrs Seth Hughes), and she was supported on the platform by Miss Mary Harris, the opener of the bazaar, Miss Eira Corbet Owen, and Miss Stella Bartlett, all pupils of S. Winifred's. The unique charm of the opening ceremony lay in the manner in ch these children per- formed the duties usually performed with much gravity by adults, investing their performances with youthful j'oyolislless and brightness. To speak critically, tlio children displayed an intelligence far above the average even of ladies' schools. Their speeches were doubtless composed for them by their elders, but one would never have suspected that from their de- livery, wh.ich was ae perfectly natural as if they were spoaiung their own thoughts. There was not a trace of rne-ro reei ta- tion" about any of the speeches, and. moreover, their delivery in each case was marked by amoothness of gesture and clearness of enunciation in a high degree. Rising suddenly, the chairman rather surprised the audience, who were evi- dently unaware of what was about to happen, and sa.id: "Before introducing Lhe lady opener to you, I should like to explain our object in raising this bazaaj. During the years of war the sale of work has not been in Abeyance, but the pro- ceeds have each year been given to war charities. As soon as war broke out, many of the lea.ding whools-S. Wini- fred's among them—formed themselves into what was called the Girls' Schools' Patriotic Union. We drid our best as a member of this society so as to answer as well as ever we could every call that came from headquarters (hear, hear). You won't mind if I tell you Dioro about it, for J am sure you know we don't wish to blow our own trumpet (laughter). So this Girls' Schools' Patriotic Union started in September, 1914, with Princess Mary as president. Her portrait is to be seen on tho membership cards, and ours lie to be soer. over there. This society was able to raise enough money to build ono wing of the Star and Garter Hospital for permanently disabled soldiers and sailors at Richmond. Later on there came an appeal to us from LordJellicoe for huts for shipwrecked mariuers on the East Coast. One of these was entirely built by our society, to which we are m deed proud to belong (hear, hear). I expect some of you know we keep a little Kaflir girl in Grahamstown. We have throughout the war beer, able to send the annual subscription for Gracie Lavasandha Skosama, our little charge in South Africa, and though we needed the new buildings very badly in 1914, all tf1nnr-h of lirni wa.v 1111 t ;¡ Ici., for the five years of the war (applause). The only buildings thought of were castles in the air, ajid so we arc quite sure you will heJp us in the effort we are making really to build the school instca.d of the castle, and to build it in Upper Bangor instead of in the air. And now I have great I pleasure in ca'ling upon Alary to open the bazaar" (loud applause). "MARY" PERFORMS THE OPENING I CEREMONY. Mary," who was greeted with cheers, with equal elocutionary ability addressed the delighted audience as follows:— "Ladies & Gentlemen,—T is as I darc- h is is, as I dare- say you can amaginc, the very first time in my life that I have opened a bazaar (laughter). Perhaps I felt just a Little nervous at the thought of doing such a thing, and Mill feel nervous. I think most openers are like that. But how could I refuse ? No I simply couid not, because you have heard from the ohair- man what the objects are, and they are so good/ One object is our new buildings -isn"t that an object that makes me feel keen to help? Of course if, js. nh: how we do want them: to think that we have bought our beautiful site and caii't go to live there yet. >. Perhaps it will corne. sooner thaii we think i Our little bird tells as the land is pegged out--that sounds good. We know Miss Doman has- been up to Loudon lately to see the Provost and the architect—that sounds good, too (laughter). And so I want you all to (Spend as much to-day as you can to hasten pn our buildings, because I do so want them to come before I leave school. I'm getting older all the time and so quickly, ?nd I should like to be a prefect in the new S. Winifred's, and perhaps even head girl there. (laughter and ap- plause). So do pilease buy as much as you can to-day, or else I shall be an old girl' there instead of being in the VI.' F.r.. I now havs very great pleasure in declaring the bazaar open (loud a.p- pfianse) The chairman then called on lira. to propose a vote of thanks to the opener. Promptly responding to the call, and maintaining the high elocutionary level already. set, Eira said :-I":e always been taught to do what I was told, so now I "get up at once when the chairman tells me. I have to ask- you to give your very best thanks to our opener. I know you "will agree with me that she has done her part very well indeed, as a girl of S. (Winifred's always should (laughter and applause). We are all very pleased with her, and I think the Dean will be especi aHv nfeased. because the Dean's son is her Rector, and when she is grown up (which she says will be very soon) she .will do all sorts of things to help her Rector in his work for the Church, as she has done to-day to help her school (applause). She has told you how wo all .want our new buildings-don't think it is because we are not very happy here; we arc; We have lovely times in fun and pleasure: we work hard And do well in examinations; we do well in our games find sports especially swimming. Didn't you hear seven of us swam the Straits Jast July?—all the papers were talking about it (laughter and applause). There are such a lot of girls who want to come to S. Winifred's, and they can't because there is no room for them. Isn't that a pity? Miss Stella Bartiett, another of the child orators, then proposed a vote of thanks to the chairman, and fully heM her own with her confreres. The Headmistress explained that she was there to receive a number of purses, each containing something. Each purse represented one of the forms in the school, though she suspected that many kind uncles and parents and grandparents had contributed (applause). Girls representing the 3rd, Lowtfr 4th, Upper 4th, 5th, and 6th Forms then filed en the stage, and each presented Miss Deman. on behalf of their respective formp, with a purse containing money.
r CORRESPONDENCE, SIR OWEN THOMAS, M.P., LEAVES FOR EGYPT. MESSAGE TO HIS CONSTITUENTS. (To the Editor of the Chronicle.) Sir,-AB you are aware, I am a Mem- ber of the Mission to Egypt of which Lord Milnei is president, and having left En- gland may I ask you to be good enough to permit me, through your columns, to bid temporary farewell to my constituents. lain exceedingly sorry to be absent from my place in Parliament during the next month or two, but the call by which ] was honoured to serve the country on this Commission seems for the moment the more urgent duty, and therefore I felt sure my constituents would desire me to go. My absence may !a.st two, possibly three months, it is not at all likely to be more, and may well be less. Meanwhile all letters addressed to me at Carlton House, Regent-street., London, S. W. 1, will be opened by my private scc- retary, and will receive just the same at- tention as if I were at home, as he is fully acquainted with the means at my disposal to advance the interests of constituents, and has my instructions to use them to the almost. Correspondence marked Pri- vate" will be forwarded to me direct un- opened. f may add that Egypt is less than a week away, and I shall be in touch with men and allairs in London almost as usual. I shall come down to Anglesey as soon as possible after my return, and in the meantime wish everyone a Happy Christ- mas and New Year. — Your Obedient Servant, (Sigrced) OWEN THOMAS, Special Mission to Egypt, Hotol Semiramis, Cairo, Egypt.
PUBLIC LIGHTING AND WATER SUPPLY IN UPPER BANGOR. (To the Editor of the Chronicle.) Six,-V,any (-if your readers were, doubt- less, glad to see Dr. Witton Davies' letter u-r,der the above heading in your last week's issnic. It is high time that public aitte-atiom atrouOd be drawn to the matter. Several inhabitants in Upper Ban.gor have, from tame to time;, complained to the authorities concerned of the miserable public lighting, and inadequate supply of gas and wa.tcr in that pairt of the city; but no improvement has yet been effected. The tantalising methods of dilly-dallying by the respective departments of the Coun- cil only tend to exasperate the pationoe of the ratepayers in this neighbourhood, and the suggestion thrown out of rcf ueling to pay further rates until they get their rights" is, I believe, a IJw.1. reasonable course of adtion to adopt. Many would gladly'become "passive resistexs" if they thouglilt that by so doing t.hy would be helping to bring about the desired c?cot.. We -d(?w how the ]',n- ,m wou ]d liave h,L b?tanls of Upper Bangw would have fared foir water had the so-called pubLic baths under the Free library been in use. 1 And yet, public baths are necessary, es- pecially in a Lopulou-9 place lik Bangor. Perhaps our now councillors, who are already justifying their presence 111 the Council Chamber j will investigate mat- ters, and endeavour to have trunks im- proved. Indeed, some people think it would also bo advisable to form a loca3 branch of the Ratepayers' Association to stimulate our public affairs. Yours, etc.. T. WILLIAMS. 10, Victoria Park. Bangor.
CARNARVONSHIRE EDUCATION I COMMITTEE. (To the Editor of the Chronicle.) I Sir,—In your report of the meeting of tho above authority, held on December 4th, the following appoo.rs Mr J. R. Pritchard stated that when they gave the teacheirs the new scale he asked the teaohers' representative what should be done with inefficient teachers, and he was told that they should be dismissed" The actual words used by Mr Pritchard were not "the teachers' representative," but "the leader of the deputation," and as all interested in this matter know, he was not a Oa.rna.rvon iro teacher, but an official of the N. U .'r. May I ask you in fairness to the three local teachers' re- presentatives, and to avoid any misunder- standing, to allow this correction to appear in your next issue. --Yours, etc., W. R. JONES. Garth School, Bangor.
