The War. Aberamanite's Terrible Ordeal. One of three survivors of a recent sub- marine attack is an Aberaman boy, Mr. Robert Andrews, son of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Andrews, Clifton Crescent, Aberaman, who arrived home on Tues- day morning. Bob, who was third engineer on the ill-fated boat, seen by I our representative, narrated his terrible experience. About 10 a.m. he happened to he on deck when he saw a torpedoe striking the ship right into her boilers, causing a terrible explosion. It sank in a couple of seconds. The crew numbered 27, of whom 24 went down. Whilst in the water he was drawn under twice by e, f? 01i ^e s^ip going down, but through a hard struggle he eventu- ally succeeded m getting hold of a piece of wreckage, which was about four feet long and 12 teet wide, to which he clung until picked up. He had been in the water for 2! hours, and had swam a distance of about 200 yards. Some dis- I tance away from him were two Man- Chester lads, who were also clinging to some of the wreckage. Unfortunately all the other crew went down with the boat- "I can remember/' says Bob, "seeing the cook coming up on deck' and the chief engineer. One of the two Manchester lads, who had also been in the water about N hours, took off his coat, and kept on waving it on the top of a stick, which resulted in their being, sighted and picked up by one of the destroyers, and were landed at Liver- pool." Andrews, who sustained a badly- bruised foot, had only his vest and nnnfi on when the boat was torpedoed. He lost all his belongings.
INQUEST AT MOUNTAIN ASH. On Wednesday morning, at the Mountain Ash Police Station, Mr. It. J. Rhys, district coroner, conducted an inquiry touching the ..death of William Rees. John Ellis identified and stated that deceased lived at 63 Woodland Street, Mountain Ash. He was 46 years of age, and was an incline hitcher at the Deep Duffryn Colliery. He was hurt on Saturday, April 21st, and was taken straight to the hospital, where he died a few hours afterwards. He leaves a widow and no children. Nurse G. Bryant stated that de- ceased was admitted on Saturday morn- ing at 11.30, suffering from compound fractures of the tibia, fibula and ribs. He died the same evening. John Morgan Rees, a mason, deposed that at the time of the accident he was helping deceased. Witness saw a full journey come along, and deceased told him to knock the wire three time. He gave the signal, and the journey worked, and then deceased shouted out. Witness found deceased right on the side of the road up the shunt. There were 18 trams, and the chain was attached to the seventh tram. One tram right opposite deceased was off the road. There was another tram off as well. Deceased usually gave plenty of time to witness to knock. On this occasion he failed to release the ,chain before calling to witness to "pull up." David Morgan, overman, stated'that he was fetched to the spot by last wit- ness. Deceased said to witness, It pulled up and caught me." He didn't speak after that. John Morgan Rees, re-called, stated that the signal he gave was three and one. The Coroner You said at first you gave three knocks. Which is correct Witness: Three and one. I'm cer- tain. John Griffiths, engine-driver, re- ceived a 6 and 3 signal to say what work was going on. He afterwards got a three and one. He started, and saw there was something wrong. John Owen Jones, manager, produced and explained a plan of the workings. The jury returned a verdict of "Ac- cidental death," no blame attaching to anyone.

NEWTOWN SOLDIER'S THANKS. Sir,—I desire to tender my most sin- cere thanks to the Newtown Ladies Patriotic Fund, also the Newtown Jolly Fund for the grand receptions given me on my recent return from abroad on sick furlough. Also for the presentations made to me while at home. It shows that the splendid work that the lads of Newtown have done, and are still doing, for their country's cause is gratefully appreciated, because each of them is given the heartiest welcomé home when he comes back. Their gifts and little acts of kindness to me will always be remembered. I am sure the other lads will agree with me when I say that we are looking forward to the time when we shall receive the "1 inal Welcome Home." Again thanking the both funds for the gifts, I remain, 241845 Pte. T. CAPE. 5th Welsh Regt.
POTATOES AT MOUNTAIN ASH. Dear Sir,—Will you allow me a small space to protest against the unfair dis- tribution of potatoes in Mountain Ash. I am one of many hundreds that have answered the country's call to the land, and am giving both labour and money in my humble endeavour to increase the food supply. But now after digging and toiling I find that there are no seed potatoes to be had, while there are plenty of potatoes for making chips every night, and those that are too small for chips are sold for seed, of which I have a sample about as big as marbles, and for which I had to pay 3d. per pound. There must be a serious loophole in our local government to allow people to hold ten or twelve tons of potatoes for making chips, whereas if they were used for seed purposes they would be multiplied at least by six in a few months' time. I think there must be something radically wrong in the Food Controlling Department, when some can buy potatoes, and managers of Co-operative Societies (where the majority of us spend all our money) fail. And even our District Council, who issued leaflets urging everyone to plant every available yard of ground, have been beaten by these local magnates. An order has been placed with the District Council since February for seed potatoes for the piece of ground which I am cultivating. But the answer to all enquiries is that they have not come in. I would like to know how do these fish and chip vendors get them in for chip orgies? It is a burn- ing shame that women have to walk to Aberdare at six in the morning to look for seed potatoes by the time their husbands come home from work, whilst enough to plant two or three allotments are fried up in these chip shops every night.—Yours, WILLIAM DAVIES. 127 Woodland Street, Mountain Ash.
