CARDIGANSHIRE FARM WAGES. The following letter appeared in Wednesday week's issue of of "South Wales Daily News" —Will you grant me a little space to call the attention of the authorities, whoever they may be, to the fact that the law of the land is evaded and defied in Cardiganshire in refer- ence to the payment of the wage and condi- tions granted by the Wages Board and sanc- tioned by the Government r1 A good many have not been paid the wage as from September 9, 1918. nor the overtime earned. Others have been paid but have been told their services were not further required. Others pay thf wages on paper, but after deducting according to their own sweet will sums for rent, setting potatoes, etc., the workman is left with 10s. or 12s. to take home for the maintenance of his wife and family. The. employers of these men have made large fortunes in comparison with their pre-war earnings, yet it seems Lliev are determined to relieve the land of every man and woman who dare mention that they want their legal pay. The farmers depend mostl now on a supply of soldier labour; Are these paid the minimum wage? I 'm very doubt- ful notwithstanding answers in the affirmative in Parliament, as I fail to figure how a soldier receiving 12s. 6d. a week earns 31s. Bread and butter-milk suppers cannot mean 18s. 6d. per week. They also relv on t^e W.A.E. Commit- tee for ploughing, thrashing, notato digging, etc. As the expensps of this Committee will, i I presume, he paid out of pockets oilier than the farming community, the Government are subsidising a community to defeat their own laws. These labourers have none of their friends on the W.A.E.C to check the granting of soldiers and machinery to farmers who have released their men since November 10th last, and they know full well the relationship exist- ing between the National Union of Farmers (South Cardiganshire) and the W.A.E.C.

I College and Farm. WELSH COUNCIL ON NEED FOR GRANTS. Sir Daniel Hall, secretary of the Board of Agriculture, presided at a meeting of the Welsh Agricultural Cpuncil at Shrewsbury on Satur-I day, when the recommendations of the Royal Commission on University Education in Wales in regard to agricultural education were dis- cussed. Sir Daniel said the work of the uni- versities in the past had been to turn out scientific men rather than the ordinary farmer's son as a better educated man going back to tlicl cultivation of the land. The idea was to re- store the economic side a little more to its proper position Mr. Wm. Edwards, of the Anglesey County Council, objected to a method that would segregate the true agricultural boy and girl at the beginning from the main stream of development in education. The farmers would be side-tracked from the. beginning. Sir Harry Reichel said the joint colleges were unable to support the recommendations of the Commission because of. the inadequacy of the financial proposals. At a conference of the two colleges that afternoon they adopted a resolution setting out that the financial provi- sion for agricultural education contemplated in the report of the Commission was inadequate, and that strong representations should be made to the proper quarters to secure funds from the Imperial Treasury commensurate with the importance of the agricultural indus- try to the nation and in keeping with the grants made for the same purposes to other parts of the kingdom. Mr. Rbt. Evans, Merionethshire., seconded Sir Harry's proposal. Prof. White, of Bangor University College, said they desired closer links between all grades of agricultural educa- tion. Mr. J. H. Davies, Aberystwyth 'College, urged that sufficient funds should be found to run research departments at the two North Wales colleges Sir Daniel Hall, replying, said he did not agree that the best type of farm institute would "side track" the farmer's son. He agreed that they must have the avenues absol- utely open all the way along. After further discussion Sir Harry Reichel's motion was carried, and the following motion was agreed to, on the motion of Mr. Jones Davies, Carmarthen, seconded by Gen. Sand- bach :—"That a deputation representing the Welsh Agricultural Council should address itself to the Prime Minister on the subject of agriculture generally, with special reference to education and the ri eds of Wales in regard to grants." The following were appointed:—Gen. Sandbach, Messrs. J. H. Davies, Aberystwyth; Wm. Edwards, Anglesey; Jones Davies, Car- marthen and either Sir Harry Reichel or Prof. White, Bangor College. HELP FOR POOR COUNTIES. Professor Brvner Jones called attention to the position of the council under the scheme of reconstruction and that of the existing agri- cultural executive committee, and said he understood that some of the Welsh counties were afraid that the result of giving more power to the Welsh Agricultural Council might I be to handicap the Welsh executive; and that while the English executive might be able to go direct to the Board of Agriculture, the Welsh executive would first have to come to, that council and rhen go to the board. Sir Daniel Hall said he thought it would be quite possible for the board to put that council in its old position. There might have to be some appeal to the board, but in a general way that council would be quite competent to watch over the action of the executive committees and frame, a general policy for them in regard to the Welsh counties. After further discussion a motion was passed that the council should consist of t vo members elected by each county, leaving it open as to how they should be appointed. Mr. J. H. Davies, Aberystwyth, emphasised the need to take, into account the poor agri- cultural counties, like Cardigan and Merioneth, and it was agreed to support the principle of local contribution to local education funds. DEMONSTRATION FARMS. Mr. Jones Davies, Carmarthen, called atten- tion to the great need there was in West Wales for demonstration farms in connection with the dairy side of agriculture Mr. G. Bowen, Pembrokeshire, said his county was ripe for one of those demonstration farms. Sir Daniel said the board would be prepared to help and push that policy.
I Llanbadarn Sessions. TIMBER FOREMAN FINED FOR TRESPASS. Thursday, before Major Bonsall, Robert Ellis, and ttichard Saycell, Esqrs. Mary Magdalene Edwards and Margaret Jane Edwards, Railway Cottage, Llanbadarn, were summoned by the Cambrian Railway Co. for trespass On the Vale of Rheidol Railway on November 4th at Issayndre.—Mr. John George, Newtown, inspector, said defendants had been previously warned against trespassing on the I railway .—John Price Morris, engine driver, said he saw the defendants on the line. He whistled twice and as the women took no notice he slowed down.—The defendants held they had a right to walk on the line as everyone else did so.—Mr. George said the Company did not want to press the charge and only wished it to be a warning as it was a growing nuisance.— A fine of 5s. in each case was imposed. Albert Constable, Cwmpadarn, timber fore- man, was summoned by John James, Royal Oak, Gogerddan, gamekeeper, for trespassing in search of game.—Mr. W. P. Owen prosecu- ted and Mr. Emrys Williams appeared for the defence.—Mrs Mary Williams said she was on the way to Royal Oak on November 8th when she heard a shot coming from the racecourse. She went down a hill and saw a man with a gun standing on the hedge. There was an- other man with him. Just before she arrived at the Royal Oak she heard another shot. Mrs Margaret Roberts, Panteg, said she saw the two men, one of whom was standing on the hedge with a gun.. Later s'ie heard a shot and saw smoke.—Mrs. Amy James, daughter-in-law of the gamekeeper, .d she heard four shots. She went up to defendant and saw him take two cartridges out of the gun. She asked him whai, authority had he to shoot rabbits; and he replied that he could shoot anything he pleased from the road.—Defendant said he had bought some chickens, and as he was troubled by hawks and magpies he bought a gun and took out a licence for it. On the day in ques- tion he saw a magpie and shot at it. He had not shot rabbits.—A fine of 30s. was imposed.— Defendant was also summoned for giving a false name and address.—John James, keeper, sai lie went up to defendant on November 8th and charged him with shooting rabbits and asked him for his name and address. Defendant re- fused to give it for a time. At last he wrote on a piece of paper, John Jones, 4, The Ter- race, Aberystwyth.—Defendant said complain- ant was very personal to him.—A fine of 30s was imposed.

Uanafan Village Club. OPENED BY THE COUNTESS OF LISBURNE. By the kindness of the Countess of Lisburne a cottage in Llanafan village has l been transformed into and equipped as a club for the residents of the village and the dis- trict. The club was furnished and presented on behalf of Lord Vaug-han, the infant son of the Earl and Countess of Lisburne and heir of orosswooa estate. The club was formally opened by Laay Lis- burne on Saturday, her ladyship naving travelled from London for the ceremony the previous day After a tew introductory remarks by the Vicar (the Rev. D. A. Thomas, M.A.), the Countess of Lisburne said—It gives me great pleasure to be present this afternoon to open this club on behalf of Lord Vaughan. Lord Lisburne and I are most anxious that he should at the earliest possible moment take a share in the life and interests around his home. The terrible war we have gone through has shown clearly many defects in the life of this country as it existed before the war. Agriculture is now realised to be one of the chief industries of this country and the happiness and welfare of all who are engaged in it is of the greatest importance. Our aim ought therefore to be to make village life as attractive as possible and prevent the younger generation drifting away from their homes into towns and cities. One of the greatest needs is for them to have some comfortable place in their midst open every evening, somplaqe provided with, papers, books, and games, where they can meet each other after the day's work and get relaxation by reading, playing, and exchanging ideas. The Lisburne Hall was, as you all know, intended to meet this need, and we in Llanafan can, 1 think, fairly pride ourselves that we were among the first to realise the necessity. Un- fortunately however the war prevented it being built. I hope this club will as far as it is possible fill the gap until the Lisburne Hall is ready, which I hope will not be long. By the time it is finished I have no doubt we allall have found another use for this building, possibly as a children's club and play room 1 feel very strongly that this war has brought us very much together, not that we were not that before; but we who have had our loved ones at the front have all suffered together. We have worked together for one end, and now the war is over it is only right that we should continue to unite in making the future as full of happiness and understanding as pos- sible. In declaring this club open I want to make it quite clear that it is now your club, to be run and managed by you all for the com- mon welfare, and I wish it every success. (Applause). A cordial vote of thanks, proposed by Mr H. H. Herring, Council School, and seconded by Mr. James Hughes, Broncwm, was passed with cheers. After the ceremony tea was pro- vided for all the members.
CORRESPONDENCE. COTTAGE HOSPITAL. Sir,—Now that the war is happily over and the longed for peace has come, hospitals all over the country will be gradually closing. Wern Auxiliary Hospital, which has done steli good work during the war, will ere long cease to exist, and there will be a sum of i oney, as well as some equipment, for disposal to be used for suitable purposes. Wnat better object could there be than the founding of a Cottage Hos- pital for Portmadoc and the district? The money would be a valuable nucleus for build- ing a hospital of, say, six beds in commemora- tion of those brave men who have fought, ai;d I in many cases died for their country. I feel sure that many people, would support an object which is badly needed in this neighbourhood and would'confer such benefits on the poor. Speaking as a surgeon, I have times without number, had to send cases which could not b3 treated in their own cottage homes, to Carnar- von, Bangor, or Liverpool, and as one who has served on the staff of the cottage hospital I can testify to the value of a small hospital where sudden urgent cases or milder cases which re- quire nursing and treatment, can be admitted, I know, from their own lips, that Mr. and Mrs Greaves would warmly welcome a scheme which would be a great boon to the working classes, and they would be truly glad to see the money and equipment from Wern Hospital devoted to gticli an admirable purpose.—Yours, etc. G. R. Green, Surgeon. The Square, Portmadoc ALSACE-LORRAINE THANKS. Sir,—Under the impression of the spontane- ous scenes which greeted the French troops on their entry into, liberated Strasbourgh, the Alsatians and Lorrainers in England wish to express their heartfelt gratitude for the warm and active sympathy which Great Britain has always shown to the cause of Alsace-Lorraine. The sacrifices which the people of these Isles and the Dominions beyond the seas have so generously made to preserve civil- isation and destroy savagery and oppression have contributed to break the heavy fetters which Alsace-Lorraine, torn against its unani- mous will from the Motherland, France, had to bear sinc3 1871. The determination of the peo- ple of Alsace-Lorraine to remain members of the French nation has never wavered in tfie past 47 years, and the happy reunion which the worldl acclaims to-day is the realisation or the just desire of all Alsatians and Lorrainers, whether at home or abroad, and will for ever consti- tute the victory of Right and Justice. (Signed) E. Roudolphi, President Ligue Patriotique des Alsaciens- Lorraine. THE VETERANS' ASSOCIATION. Sir,—The Veterans' Association is becoming recogniscd as the central organisation of veterans, but in order to meet the needs of the future it must be widely extended. Ac- cordingly under the title of "An Imperial Memorial" a scheme has been brought into being, and will be conferred upon such of the ex-service men of the Empire as need a help- ing hand. Through it there will be provided a Veterans' Headquarters and a "clearing house" and facilities for obtaining every kind of information, advice, and assist, nee. Especi- ally will it afford the means of rebuilding and maintaining the health of those who should still be as capable of adding to the strength of the Empire in peace as they were of safeguarding it in war. To carry out the project a sum of at least Bl.000,000 will be required for erecting and endowing the necessary buildings for an en- larged Veterans' Club with at least 1,000 bed- rooms and its own extended organisations, in- cluding a convalescent home. The Association appeals to all for help to establish this Memorial which extends to the whole Empire, and in particular it apreals. 1. To those who have been debarred from directly assisting by fighting for the Empire, and who now have an opportunity of helping to rebuild it in a way which will be a lasting tribute to the heroes who have fallen, and to our sailors, soldiers and airmen who, offering themselyes unstintingly have survived the risk I and whose future must under no circumstances become a reproach to us 2. To those who have lost'some relatives and friends and who would gladly see some perm- anent practical memorial erected to their memory. Donations, large or small, should be forwarded to the Treasurers or the Secretary, Veterans' Association, 4t, Bedford Row, W.C.I. Any donations can, if desired, be specially devoted to the Convalescent Home, in which case they should be marked "Convalescent Home."— Yours, etc. The Committee. WELSH SERGEANT'S COMPLAINT. Sir-When Lord Kitchener sounded the clarion call to arms the manhood of the country re- sponded with a will. England was in peril, and sacrifices were to be made to preserve her freedom. Kitchener's army is hisl greatest monument. For over four years the men have been reconstructing the map of Europe with their life's blood, while shirkers and conscien- tious objectors have been having the time of their life. I entered the Armageddon in April, 1915. and was on active service with the first Battalion of the Welsh Guards when I was sixteen. I am now nineteen, and have three years and seven months service to my credit. My father is also on work of nat:onal import- ance in South Wales, but on October 30th, at Aberayron Petty Sessions, an ejectment order was made against him in respect of a small I field he had rented from the Monachdy Estate for fifteen years, paying his rent regularly. The result was that my father's cow had to be sold. I Now. what I want to know is what have I been fighting for? Sergt. Tom Ccmpton Herbert.

Treuliodd Cranogwen ei hoes faith yn ngwasanaeth ei chenedl; ymroddodd yn llwyr i'r gwaith o ddyrchafu ei gwlad mewn addysg, dirwest a moesoldeb. Felly, ystyrir mai priodol ydyw sefydlu ysgoloriaeth i ferched fel cofdeyrnged i'w henw; ac er sicrhau llwyddiant y mudiad, taer erfynir ar i gyfeill- ion ac edmygwyr Cranogwen fod yn ffyddlon i'w choffadiwriaetli trwy ddanfon eu cyfran- iadau i Miss Rowlands, Farnam, Aberystwyth, gohcbydd y Pwyllgor, yr hon sydd wedi cyfrannu can' punt tuag at y gronfa.
ABERAYRON. The impetus given by an important general meeting of townspeople a fortnight back is operating in methods of organisation in regard to war commemoration. A meeting of the General Committee of forty-four persons nom- inated at the public meeting, with power to add, met on Friday evening. Mr. W. Key presided over a full gathering. According to notice, the meeting proceeded to elect by written voting papers seven men and two women to constitute a working committee. Forty-four papers were received and the fol- lowing were elected ;—Mr. W. Key, Mr. T. Lloyd Evans, Pengarreg; Mr.. D. G. Munro Hughes, N.P, Bank; Mr. E. J. Roberts, L. C. and M. Bank; Mr H. C. Davies, L. and P. Bank; Mr. C. Denham Evans, and Mr. E. Hughes Davies, Llannon House; Mrs. Davies, Feathers Hotel; and Miss Bessie Lewis, R.A.M. A free discussion ensued on ways and means It was unanimously agreed that if E3,000 to R4,000 were subscribed and guaranteed the ideal form of commemoration would be the erection and equipment of a memorial hall, to include a public institute. Many speakers expressed a confident belief that this project could be achieved and the noney obtained without deferred payments of promised sub- scriptions and free of debt, but the sums announced did not augur hopefully for realiza- tion. People waited in vein at the meeting for announcements of contributions of sums varying from £ 1,000 to flOO. T/re should be among our grateful, passionate hearts and our warlike optimistic patriots a few who could help to that extent to perpetuate the memory of our glorious dead and living and to leave a memory in stone that ve !n)(W how to value their sacrifice in deed as we-1 as in word; in short, to put in evidence the faet that the neople at home were puple wonn dying for If that were done, the r roject would be assured. The Committee has tie inestimable advantage of being a new broom and cannot be said to be tarnished and r< nclered ineffec- tive by long usage. Mr Dickie Kvaris. who has already done good serrice, and Mr. W. J. Jones, B.Sc., who is esr»feed I ack from mili- tary service, were clfcted cereral secff-trries. .&
