THE ELLIS MEMORIAL. SITE DECIDED UPON. A meeting of the lSllis Memorial Committee was held at Shrewsbury on Friday, when there were present Dr Roger Hughes (chairman), Mr Thomas Ellis (Cynlas), Mr William Evans (Birmingham), Mr Thomas Jones (Brynmelyn), Mr Owen M Edwards, and Mr Vincent Evans, and the Rev Gwynoro Davies. It was decided that the statue be erected in the main street at Bala on the site known as Plas-yri-dre. It was unanimously resolved that thA work should not be given out for competi. tion, and that a deputation consisting of Mr William Evans, Mr Owen M Edwards, and Mr Vincent Evans, should see Mr Goscombe John to explain the position of the committee and to ask him to submit designs of a statue. Mr John being a personal friend of the late Mr Ellis, would naturally have a great advantage over an artist who bad never seen him. It was reported that subscriptions continued to come in from all parts of the country. It is estimated that at least another X250 will be required if a statue worthy of Mr Ellis is to be erected. It is the intention of Mr William Evans (Birmingham) to present every subscriber or collector of one guinea or upwards to the movement with a bronze medal in case. On one side of the medal will be an effigy of Mr Ellis, and on the other one of Cynlas, his birthplace and home. Some 800 or 1,000 of these medals will be struck off. It is anticipated that the statue will be up by the end of August. ♦
