Wales at Work— A Social Diary. INTERNATIONAL. On the first of March, the day of our Patron Saint, who, though trained to bear arms, became a Missioner of Peace and of Goodwill, it is our custom as a nation and as a people to dwell upon the past and to think of the future. We recall with pride the heroes that are gone, not the least among them Henry Richard, and we remember, too, with grateful hearts, the sacrifice made for us by the thousands of young Welshmen who, like Hedd Wyn� died so that war might be no more. In the quest for World-peace Wales has, therefore, a great tradition and a great responsibility. From the idealism of those who strove and suffered has been fashioned in our time the only practical in- strument for international co-operation-the Covenant of the League of Nations. The Welsh Council of the League of Nations Union makes its appeal on St. David's Day for still greater support in the effort to help Wales to become, more and more, a Missionary Nation for Peace amongst all the Peoples of the World. Particulars of the work in Wales and of how to further the movement in every town and in every village may be obtained from the Honorary Director of the Welsh Council, the Rev. Gwilym Davies, M.A., 6, Cathedral-road, Cardiff. "Segurdod yw clod y cledd, A rhwd yw ei anrhydedd." The North Wales Demonstration of the League of Nations Union at Llandudno, was one of the most successful gatherings ever held in the Principality. At an afternoon meeting for the children, Prof. C. K. Webster spoke, and at the evening meeting, the principal speaker was Lord Robert Cecil. A Henry Richard Celebration is to be held at Tregaron on Easter Wednesday-April 4th-under the joint auspices of the Welsh Council of the League of Nations Union, the Union of Welsh Societies and the Tregaron branch. Amongst those who are ex- pected to take part are Mr. David Davies, M.P., the Chairman of the Welsh Council; Mr. E. T. John, Chairman of the Union of Welsh Societies; Mr. Ernest Evans, M.P.; Mr. John Rowland, C.B.; Prof. Ernest Hughes, M.A.; the Rev. Dyfnallt Owen; the Rev. D. C. Davies; Mr. T. Huws Davies and Mr. Victor Evans, of St. John's College, Oxford The second annual conference of the Welsh Council of the League of Nations Union will be held at Aberystwyth in Whit-week. EDUCATION. The University of Wales has taken an important step with regard to the appointment of principals of the Constituent Colleges. Amongst the recommend- ations decided upon at a conference at Shrewsbury were :­ (i) That the procedure for filling the post of principal to a Constituent College should be parallel to that prescribed for the appoint- ment of University professors and lecturers. (2) That the Council of a Constituent College shall appoint a principal on the report of a Selection Committee consisting of four mem- bers appointed by the College Council and two members appointed by the Council of the University. The representatives of the Uni- versity shall be persons of high academic distinction and administrative erperience. These persons need not be members of the University of Wales. (3) That the College Council shall determine ..he manner in which applications are to be in- vited, and shall submit the names of the Candidates to the Selection Committee. 14) That the report of the Selection Committee to the College Council shall take the form of a reasoned statement, setting forth the qualific- ations (f those candidates who are weU-fine to hold the offices of Principal of the College and Vice-Chancellor of the University 11 is Grace, the Archbishop of Cardiff opened the new St. Mary's College, Aberystwyth, on February 3rd. It takes the place of the College at Holyweil, and the present building was formerly known as Castell Brychan. Its proximity to the University College at Aberystwyth gives it many educational ad- vantages over Holywell. The recent regulations of the Board of Education with regard to Wales and Monmouthshire, recommend that subjects should be correlated to and some of them taught in the mother tongue if the latter is to be pro- perly utilised as the valuable educational instrument which it is capable of becoming. The University of Wales has issued its programme for its Annual Eisteddfod. The abolition of money prizes is significant, while its cordial invitation to the students of extra mural classes to participate, may be welcomed as a bright augury for the future. Salaries of teachers provide a vexed question in education. Reductions are acquiesced to, to the ex- tent of 5 per cent. Cardigan is experiencing the trial of violent disagreement in the revision of salaries. Notices have been served at Aberystwyth and Aber- ayron County Schools. The position of the other schools is equally critical. RELIGIOUS. Steps have been taken towards the creation of a new diocese, comprising roughly the Archdeaconry of Brecon. The Priory Church, Brecon, will be the Cathedral Church of the new diocese. Lord Tredegar has presented a residence for the Bishop. The Joint Committee of Churchmen and repres- entatives of the Evangelical Churches has presented its proposals with regard to religious education. They are as follows;- (1) The L.E.A. to have complete control over appointments, etc. (2) Refusal to give religious instruction by a teacher to be no offence. (3) The Conscience Clause to be preserved. (3) The L.E.A. to provide religious instruction. (5) The religious instruction to comprise in- struction in the Bible, including the prin- ciples of Christian faith. (6) Training colleges to furnish means for training to give religious instruction. (7) L.E.A. to issue a syllabus for religious in- struction with the power reserved to teachers of submitting alternative ones. (8) L.E.A. to form an advisory committee for re- ligious education, (9) Liberty to contract out of any adopted scheme to be permitted except in single school areas. (10) In N. P. Schools additional instruction accord- ing to the authority of the Church to which the schools belongs is to be given to the children of parents and guardians who desire it. Arrangements for transfer of N.P. Schools are as follows (1) To be transferred to L.E.A. at a peppercorn rent. (2) Church to retain use of school on Sunday and on two nights per week. (3) Church authorities to pay for heating and lighting during hours of use.
