CHRIST COLLEGE ii BREAK- 1 ING UP." The end of a winter term at Christ College in the old days was always 1 associated with re-unions of Old Boys, I musical entertainments and seasonable festivities. The war for five years made these but memories of the past and accustomed us to maimed rites in the Christmas breaking up." But now that Peace has come into her own again, Christ College has resumed some of its former festivities and has gathered round itself not a few of its Old Boys-war- hardened veterans many of them—in the December days of 1919. On Thursday, the 11th inst., W. M. Llewellyn brought up a XV. to play the School. Llewellyn himself had not taken the field for ten long years, and with him were his fellow internationals —Dr. E. Morgan and W.L. Morgan—and several other well-known Rhondda play- ers, lights, it is true, of other days, but men of skill and renown. It was sur- prising how well these veterans shaped. Willie Llewellyn himself gained his first, cap for Wales 20 years ago. It would be scarcely true to suggest that he retains all his old pace and skill time spares no man. But in the first few minutes of the game he made a dash, intercepted a pass, and ran for the line with his old incomparable quickness and agility. It recalled vividly the memory of how he scored four tries against England in his first International match in 18'J9. Teddy Morgan is still a great player indeed it was almost impossible to notice any diminution of pace and rapidity of move- ment in his play. He scored 3 tries, and he gave the general impression that he was as capable as ever of scoring many more in his inimitable fashion even among better company. Willie Morgan played his usual quiet effective game, and we doubt if Wales has many better 'inside halves than he is still, though it is nine years since he was last capped. Against this galaxy of talent (for there were other brilliant perform- ers besides these famous O.B.'s), the School made a gallant and dashing re- sistance. Both forward and behind they showed themselves not unworthy to contend with the giants of bye-gon,e days. D. S- O. Thomas, I. LI. Evans and Lougher K. V. Evans, D. R. R. Roberts and V. Moreton showed beyond a doubt that there are as good fish in the sea as ever came out of it, and though the "International" scratch team won by 20 points to 13, they were harder put to it than anyone, including them- selves, expected before the game began. The present team can be satisfied with a notable display of good football. On the 18th. inst. the regular O. B. match, last played in 1913, was resumed. Despite a heavy ground and stormy weather a fine game was seen. The Old Boys mustered a strong side, led by M. J. Cooper and including S. R. Phillips, 1. T. S. Yorath, A. R. Price, T. V. Evans, E. K. Godby, R. J. Richards, G. E. Watson and other sound players' of recent years. It was, compared with the previous Thursday's side, a young and active, if less brilliant array. The School, however, were too good for them. Continually attacking they ran out victors by 15 points to nil and left no doubt in the minds of their elder brethren that the present Christ College XV. is a team of more than usual skill and determination. Their forward play was splendid and frequently they wheeled the old boys back off the ball and made rushes of over half the length of the field. Back play of merit was less easily accomplished on so deplorable a day, but if the centres fell below their normal skill the halves were most successful, Harries playing a great game and Thomas drop- ping a goal and scoring a try. Lougher also made many of his smart dashes, though without ever beating a stout defence. In the evening a delightful concert brought a happy reunion to an end. Under the auspices of the Literary, Dra- matic and Debating Society, and with Mr W. H. Webb's able musical direction and training, a long and varied pro- gramme was carried out without a hitch and encores were "frequent" and en- thusiastic. Special praise must be given to the fine choral singing of the School Choir in Pinsuti's delicate part song. "The Sea hath its pearls." T. Melhuish fairly brought down the house with his cool, effective delivery of a clever mono- logue. There were humorous trios and quartettek, all well worth the hearing, and the soloists were equally successful in their efforts. All were sorry when a most pleasant evening ended and the winter term of 1919 was no more; and the Xmas holidays of this year of peace are not likely to be any the less happy for Christ College boys, because they carry home with them glowing memories of a joyous "breaking up" entertainment. The concert programme was as follows :—Pianoforte duet, "11 Corricolo" (de Grau), E. L. Jones and T. E. Griffiths; quartette, "Three Doughty Men," Messrs Huggonson, Durran, Isitt and Donaldson song, "Jones of the Lancers," J. R. L. Jones monologue, "The Coward," J.

■■ = MOTOR COLLISION N At Brecon County Court. i- At Brecon County Court, on Satur- day, his Honour Judge Rowland Rowlands was occupied for some time in hearing a claim and counter claim arising out of a motor-car collision on the Brecon—Hay road on May 28th last. Mr Fred Fielding, a commercial traveller, of Cardiff, sued Mr A. J. Cattell, M.R.C.V.S., of Brecon, for 144 for damages to his car, loss of business, &c., and Mr Cattell counter-claimed for f,86 6s 6d fbr damage to his car. Mr Hugh Jones, instructed by Mr W. G. Howell (Cardiff) appeared for the plain- tiff and Mr A. T. James (instructed by Mr F. C. Shackel, Cardiff) appeared for defendant. The collision occurred at the junction of the old Builth road with the main road from Brecon to Hay. Plaintiff was being driven by his chauffeur from Builth Wells to Brecon and defendant was driving from Brecon. The case for the plaintiff was that defendant was driving very fast (30 to 35 miles an hour was the speed suggested) and that defen- dant's chauffeur, going at a walking pace, not having time to cross the main road to his proper side, turned his car sharp to the right and stopped it partly on the grass, with the near front wheel on the road. Both cars were damaged by the collision, and a wheel was knocked off plaintiff's car. The defendant's case was that he was driving at a moderate speed of not more than 15 miles au hour, and slowed down to eight or ten miles when approaching the cross-roads in question, knowing the place to be dangerous that he was on the proper side of the road, and that plaintiff's chauffeur cut the corner on the wrong side turning into the main road and so caused the collision. Defendant tried to avert a collision by swerving to the right when he saw the corner of the other car, but could not quite clear it. In the course of his evidence- the plaintiff said defendant was going so fast he could not stop and witness believed his chauffeur saved all their lives by the course he adopted. After the collision defendant's car rap several yard? down a lane leaving the main road on the other side. Mr Harold Elston, who was summoned to the spot by telephone and afterwards repaired both cars, said he found Mr Cattell's car at the mouth of the lane. The tracks suggested that plaintiff's driver tried to cut the corner. Defendant, in his evidence, said he could have stopped his car in about 11 lengths, but he cut across the road in order to clear the other car if possible. His Honour said he had come to the conclusion that plaintiff was on the wrong side of the road, and the question then arose whether there was any burden on the defendant. Was he to be allowed under those circumstances to exercise his judgment as to whether he should pull up or take some other course, or was he bound to do absolutely the correct thing ? Mr Hugh Jones contended that it was incumbent on defendant to act in a reasonable way according to the circum- stances. The practice of cutting corners was so general that defendant ought to be prepared for it. His Honour held that some latitude of judgment must be allowed to a person gravelling on his right side and the man who imposed the burden on him-must stand the consequences. He gave judgment for the defendant both on the claim and counter-claim, allowing him 980 as damages and costs.

Brecon Farmers' Union. .The annual meeting of the Brecon Branch of the Brecon and Radnor Far- mers' Union, was held at the Wellington Hotel on Friday afternoon, and was fairly well attended. Mr J. C. Morris, the retiring president, occupied the chair at the outset. It was stated that the branch still had to find nearly:& 15 of the 9 40 asked of it for the propaganda fund, and Mr Jno. Jones (Llanfihangel-Nantbran) remarked that it was a scandalous shame. Mr J no. Smith (Greenway) and others also criticised the apathy of some of the members and later a number of subscriptions were paid in. The Secretary (Mr W. Williams) pointed out that two or three new branches mainly consisting of colliers with small farms paid their quota to the propaganda fund in a month, but of the f400 asked from the, two counties he had only JE130 in hand after writing. innumerable letters. The membership of the Brecon branch had increased from 140 in 1918 to 214. (Hear, hear). Mr Morgan (Ynysmoch), vice-chair- man for 1919, was appointed chairman and Mr W. R. Prosser (Cefn Brynich) vice-chairman. A hearty vote of thanks was passed to the retiring Chairman for his services, and the Secretary stated that Mr Morris had done excellent work in getting new members. Mr Williams was re-appointed sec- retary, with many complimentary remarks upon the arduous and successful work he bad done for the Union, and Mr W. H. Gimson (Barclay's Bank) was appointed auditor. Delegates to the Brecon and Radnor Executive were also appointed.
