Back to the Land. APPEAL TO GLAMORGAN COMMITTEE. At a meeting of Glamorgan Small Holdings and Allotments Committee on Monday a letter was read from Mr. Edgar Jones, M.P., stating that Ysgubor- wen Farm, Aberdare (which had been re- garded as a suitable property for small holdings), had changed hands; that the Earl of Plymouth was about to lease it, and that the Powell Duffryn Colliery Co., it was rumoured, were trying to'get it. "There is a strong feeling in the dis- trict," wrote Mr. Edgar Jones, "against allowing almost all the agricultural ;n- j terest to get into the hands of a large colliery compally¡H and he urged the com- mittee to do something in the matter. Mr. Jones added that he wrote at the request of a large number of constituents. Councillor G. A. Treharne said an asso- ciation had been formed at Aberdare, and it was strong enough in membership to take up the whole of Ysguborwen Farm. It was decided to write to Colonel Forrest (agent to the Earl of Plymouth) in the matter. Mr. Treharne also said that another farm in the district would soon be avail- able, and he would urge the desirability of the County taking over that as well. He was convinced that it was their duty to bring the people back to the land.
