The members of the Committee presided at the tables:—Mrs G. Hughes Rob- erts, Edcyrn; Mrs. J. Hughes Parry, LI an or; Mrs. Jones (Ceridwen Peris), Mrs Salt, Bod- fean; Miss Roberts, Abererch; Miss Jones, Neuadd; Mrs. Williams, Penllech Ucliaf; Miss Thomas, Tregwm; Miss Jones, Barrack; Mrs. Thomas, Rectory, Tydweiliog; Mr. Davies, Penybryn; Mrs. Williams Bryn Villa; and Miss Williams, Tanygraig; assisted by Messrs Griffith Jones, Penbont; G. Cornelius Roberts, Pw L- heli; J. Hughes Parry, Llanor; H. W. Jones, Pengraig; Rowland Rowlands Llanaelhaiarn; and David Jones, Rhoshirwaen. After partak- ing of tea in the hall a concert was given on the Lawn, presided over by Mr. C. H. Lloyd Edwards. Mrs. Blake, Pwllheli, Mr William Davies, Trevor, and Gutyn Lieyn took part, with Mrs. Salt as accompanist. Mr. Lloyd Edwards, in a short address, gave the heartiest welcome possible to the men to Nanhoron and said the Committee was anxious that they should receive the best treatment. He thanked the women members, and also Mr. T. W. Thomas secretary, for the great trouble they had taken in preparation.—Lieut D. Hughes Parry proposed a hearty vote of thanks to the Chairman for t.he invitation. He also thanked the Committee, especially the ladies, for pre- paring so splendid an entertainment. He hoped the kindness and generosity shown towards ex- service men would continue; but feared there was a tendency to give appointments to men who had stayed at home.—Professor D. Morris Jones, M.C., ex-chaplain seconded the proposi- tion, remarking that the occasion had afforded a splendid opportunity for meeting each other after the great hardships they had gone through. He asked them to remember that the hardest struggle was sti 1 ahead. They must fight enemies within theTr own country if they wanted to make Great Britain purer and more righteous. The proposition was agreed to. —The Rev. P Brynmor Jones, organiser of the Comrades of the Great War, addressed the men and urged them to become members. There were, he said, cases of great privation and hard- ship in the country. The men fought hard for the right to live; but they must unite in order to secure their rights. He considered that the E5 gratuity given by the Government was purt, charity and said the Comrades, numbering over three millions, were out for at least £50.
