supreme example this would be of the folly of arguing from the general to the particular." "Both in Denmark and in Wales it was a clergyman who became the prophet of popular adult education-Bishop Grundtvig, with his Folk High Schools, and the Rev. Griffith Jones, of Llanddowror, with his Circulating Schools." "The Welshman, Robert Owen, was a world apostle of scientific co-operation and popular education." "In the concert of the nations the small nationalities are necessary to the harmony of the world orchestra!" Sir PERCY WATKINS. "We must learn from Denmark, but we must not slavishly imitate her." "There are certain similarities between the little nation of Denmark and that of Wales, but there are also fundamental differences, and we must have regard for these." "Denmark, like Wales, is broadly homogeneous in religious sentiment, is agricultural in its basic industries, is democratic, and is deeply interested in education." "Political and economic circumstances forced Denmark into extensive schemes of co-operation her traditions only made easy a process which was essential to her well-being." "The flat lands and navigable sounds united the Danes, the mountain masses and radiating valleys have separated Welshmen. It is for this reason harder to learn co-operation in Wales, yet it must be done." "The great need of Wales, if she is to fulfil her destiny, is for her to forget her separating moun- tains and remember only the spirit which unites us." CAPT. GEOFFREY CRAWSHAY. "A nation which forgets the soil from which it sprang will soon cease to be a nation." "Urban problems have too long monopolised the minds of our thinkers-it is time now that the country got its turn." "The solution of urban problems lies, I think, in the scientific development of the industries and amenities of the countryside." "The farm labourer ought to tread a farm which could, if he tried, one day become his own." "We have no agricultural policy or system, yet it is to-day the country's direst need." "The flow of country blood into the towns has been to some degree stopped by the prevailing trade depression-we ought now to set up the reverse process." DR. WILLIAM KING. "Over eighty per cent. of our population in Wales live in urban areas." "The countryside is becoming populated mainly by the very young and the very old." "Curiously, the drift to the towns is often most emphasized in times of agricultural prosperity." PROF. GWILYM EDWARDS. "Wales must again revitalise her countryside if she is to live." "The smallest nations have given to the world the greatest thoughts." "The glory that was Greece and the grandeur that was Rome had their roots in the culture of nations which were comparatively small." PROF. BRYNER JONES. "Welsh agriculture, by tradition and climatic and other circumstances, is pastoral rather than agricultural." "Welshmen make good herdsmen and shep- herds." "The land used for wheat growing in England is often fitted for very little else." "The Welshman has a great affection for his land." "More land for division into self contained holdings is needed in Wales." "The Welsh farmer needs educating. He often follows uneconomic and antiquated methods. He should never sell bad butter and bad eggs, as is so often the case." THE REV. CANON CEIDRYCH THOMAS. "We are divided in Wales-I plead for co- operation and co-ordination." "It is with our feet planted firmly on the earth and our heads in the heavens that we can achieve both physical and spiritual success." DR. R. ALUN ROBERTS. "Pastoral Wales gave rise only to occasional social groupings like the gymanfa and the eistedd- fod. Agricultural England developed more strongly the community life of the village, which gave rise to a strong social consciousness and a greater skill in self government." "The narrow valleys leading outwards from the mountain masses of Wales gave rise to paro- chial points of view in the Welsh. The equal division of the land amongst all the sons kept them at their homes and made them hostile to strangers. Not for nothing was the Welsh word for "neighbour" — cymmydog, that is, one of the same "commote." "The geographical conditions of Wales are disruptive. All the valleys lead either to the English plain or to the sea. The lines of com- munication have no true focus in Wales." "We have good and bad traditions in Wales; let us cherish the best and discard the rest." "The English plain, which concealed nothing, made for a matter of fact people-the Welsh mountains made for poetry and romance."
