LAMPETER AND DISTRICT. Caxton Hall. OUR readers will be interested to know what is to become of Caxton Hall-the. > "LIan" headquarters for many years. We understand that the tender of Mr. D. Caxton Davies, of Cardiff, has been accepted by the liqui- rlatorsof the Welsh Church Press and Printing Co. The entire premises, in- cluding machinery, stock, etc., have been taken over by him as a going con- cern. Mr. Davies, who is well known as a former manager of the business and as a staunch churchman, contemplates great improvements, and hopes to make Caxton Hall of still greater service to the Church in Wales. G.F.S. The Archdeaconal Conference held at Lampeter was a great success. Miss Wilson, diocesan secretary for Chichester, gave us most invigorating addresses. The demobilising of our women war workers, urged the speaker, afforded us great opportunities of creating new life and enlisting new workers. Our local branch is very flourishing. This is due largely to Miss Thomas, Oswald, who until recently was our energetic branch secretary. She has had to resign under doctor's orders, and her place has been taken by Mrs. G. W. Wade. A full programme has been ar- ranged for the winter, and includes the acting of a Shakespearean play to be directed by Mrs. Hugh Walker. Memorial Service at the College. A most impressive memorial service for the thirty-one fallen students was held at the College Chapel on All Saints' Day. With the college staff and students there were many townspeople present, and the I chapel was full. The Bishop of St. David's preached on Hebrews xii. 1. Dr. Wade and Prof. Richards acted as the Bishop's chaplains. Professor Green conducted the service and read the list of the fallen, which included three priests. Mr. Ivor Davies, the col- lege organist, accompanied. The ser- vice opened with () fryniau Caer- salem," and closed with How bright those glorious spirits shine," and the twenty-third psalm was sung. Llanycrwys- A memorial tablet to the late General Sir James Hills-Johnes was unveiled at St. David's Church on November 5. The inscription runs To the glory of God and in memory of Lieut-General Sir James Hills-Johnes, V.C., G.C.B. LL.D. The lighting of this church was borne by Lady Hills-Johnes. Morgan Griffiths, vicar. John Harries and Ben- jamin Jones, churchwardens." The stone, we understand, was subscribed for by the parishioners, and the lighting of the church refers to the recent instal- lation of acetylene gas. The ceremony was performed by a niece of the "de- parted, Miss Evans, Lovesgrove, Aber- ystwyth. There was an overflowing con- gregation, and the Itev. Griffith Jones, Caio, in his sermon, speaking from per- sonal and intimate knowledge, paid tri- bute to the late general.
