AMMANFORD. -1 Success.—Mr. D. Watkin Kees, ot Bodlondeb, Penybank, has recently passed the examination held in London by the Surveyors' Institution, thus en- titling him to become associated with that institution. He is articled to Mr. J. Owen Parry, civil and mining engi- neer and surveyor, Ammanford. The death in action, on January 39th, is reported of Priv .T om H. Davies, of the Welsh Regiment, son of Mr. and Mrs. T. Davies, 6, Quarry Row, Pantyftynnon. He had served in France for 15 months, and at the time of his death he was coming out of the trenches for a well-deserved period of home leave. Prior to enlisting, two years ago, he worked at the Dynevor Tinplate Works. He was 21 years of age. His brother is First Class Stoker J. S. Davies. Deceased's father has also lost a son-in-law and a brother in the war. Sailor Jack Parry, son of Mrs. Parry, Telegraph Hotel, Ammanford, is spending a short holiday at home. Although not out of his teens, Jack has had considerable experience on his voyages across the sea. He has been on his third trip to America. On the last voyage, his ship, the Turino." was torpedoed, but the crew were saved, except for a few who suc- cumbed as a result of the explosion. The young salt looks well, despite his trying escapades. He was a student at King' s College, Taunton, before he took to sea life. A reception was given on Sunday evening, after divine service, at the English Congregational Chapel, to Sergt. Oscar Jones, of the Shop, Tiry- dail Square, who was home on leave from foreign srvice. In the absence of the pastor, the chair was taken by Mr. Richard W. Davies, chairman of the Committee, and a capital programme was gone through. A recitation, "The Burial of Sir John Moore," was given by Willie Hitchings, and quartettes were sung by W. Hitchings and party, and Richard Davies and party; while the choir, under the conductor- ship of Mr. Samuel Waters, rendered two anthems. A speech was made -by Mr. Waters, and also by Mr. Morgan Will iaims, Bettws, and the usual present of two guineas was handed over to Sergt. Jones by Mrs. Walters, College Street. A complimentary concert was held at Ebenezer Baptist Vestry in honour of Priv. D. Evans, R.F.A., Tirydail, and Priv. Sidney Davies, A.O.C., High Street. Mr. T. W.

Institute, when Mrs. Jones, late accompanist, was made the recipient of a wedding present by the party, in the form of a silver spirit kettle and cake c'ish. In the absence of Mr. T. M. Evans, M.A., the pre- sident of the choir, Mr. W. T. Rhys (baritone), the chairman of the com- mittee, took the chair. Miss Annie Davies, as she was then,was appointed accompanist of the choir at its inaugura- tion, and faithfully and ably she ful- filled her duties while occupying the position. Last August she married Mr. T. D. Jones, colliery manager, Cymmer, where they at present reside. Following an able speech by the Chairman, a very interesting pro- gramme, which had been prepared by the secretary, Mr. Bowen Jones, was gone through :-Musi-cal monologue, Not Understood, Mr. W H. Evans; speech, Mr. Job Thomas; song, The Little Damozel," Miss Ceinwen James, R.A.M.; speech, Mr. Edwin Thomas; song, Echo," Mr. W. T. Rees; speech by Mr. Jenkin Mathews, the treasurer; song, "Fechgyn Cymru." Mr. H. J. Richards; recitation, Y Cynllun Goreu o Ddewis Gwraig, Mr. E. W. Thomas; song, Car- mena, Miss Ceinwen James. The presentation was made by Mr. Cwilym R. Jones. and Mrs. Jones responded. Neat little speeches were made by Miss Ceinwen James, R.A.M., and Miss Winifred Evans, A.P .S. On Saturday evening last, a number of prominent residents met jon the occa- sion of parting with one of their friends, Mr. Robert Dewsberry, Col- lege Street, who has left for Llanelly. Councillor J. C. Shaw ably filled the chair, and his remarks, together with followirg speeches, conveyed the feel- ing of profound regret that one so closely associated with them was leav- ing the circle, where his wit, I the ci it, good humour, level-headedness, and geniality, not forgetting his abilities as an original story-teller, will be missed at future meetings in the nest." Mr. D. L. Lloyd presented Mr. Dewsberry with a gold chain and medal, inscribed, on behalf of his many friends, as a token of respect and esteem, and the Chairman likewise presented a silver oake basket for Mrs. Dewberry, who, he felt sure, would be equally missed in the good work and the various move- ments in the town, Mr. Dewsberry, in responding, also on behalf of Mrs. Dewsberry, thanked his friends for the presents, regretted the parting, and said that while making some new friends, he always believed in the old saying, Old friends are the best." Speeches followed by Mr. A. S. Jones (Lloyds Bank), and Mr. W. Williams, who also sang an original song appropriate to the occasion. Others who spoke were Messrs. D. E. Thomas (Bank, Wind Street), Yestyn Williams, D. Thomas, A. Preston. D. Davies, W. Pritchard, David Lewis, C. Morgan (C. and C. Bank), and W. Reeder. Mr. D. E. Thomas acted as secretary and treasurer, which duties were ably carried out. The gathering dispersed after singing For he's a jolly good fellow."
BETTWS. I A warm welcome was given at Garnswllt to Priv. W. Bevan, of the New Zealand contingent, whose father, Mr. John Bevan, a native of the district, emigrated to the Colony sixty years ago, and died there in 1908. A social was held at Bettws Council School, on Tuesday evening, by the members of the Bettws Orchestral Band, who invited a few friends. The catering had been entrusted to lady friends, and the arrangements were all that could be desired, a splendid repast being provided. Afterwards there was a concert, presided over by Mr. Ben Johnson. Selections were given by the band, under the conductorship of Mr. Geo. 1. Thomas, L.L.C.M.; a reci- tation by Mr. David Williams; song, Mr. Owen Madden, who was encored; violin solo, Mr. E. Price, A.C.V.; euphonium solo, Mr. B. Davies; song, Miss Louisa Davies (encored); and pianoforte solo, Miss Lilian Harries. There was also an interesting competi- tion for the best story, won by Mr. Owen Madden, who was duly pre- sented with the prize by one of the vanquished. The members of the orchestra took advantage of the occa- sion to present their faithful accom- panist, Miss Ceinwen Williams, with a nice suede vanity bag, as a token of their appreciation of her services, voiced by the conductor, Mr. Geo. I. Thomas, who warmly acknowledged her aid and regular attendances at .the practices. A vote of thanks to the ladies, proposed by Mr. Owen Madden, seconded by Mr. T. Lewis, Penygroes, also a vote of thanks to the chairman, concluded a very happy evening.

I BRYNAMMAN. I Matters are getting vety stagnant industrially in the district. In most of the works playdays average about two during a week. The financial war certificates are attracting considerable interest here. Most of the works, places of worship, and schools have made preparations to receive contributions. Over £ 54 has already been received at the Upper Council Schools from the scholars. Mr. Johnny Wilki ns, Ardwyn, has recently obtained his certificate as second class colliery manager. As a result of previous examinations he suc- cessfully passed in Mining with honours. He has also passed in Mine Surveying and other phases of the art. Octogenarian Passes Atva-p.-We have this week to announce the death of Mrs. Jones, better known as Mrs. Jones y Voel." She was in her 81st year, and was one of the oldest of Brynamman inhabitants. During the last 50 years she acted as midwife and nurse, and had attended over 2,000 cases. She leaves a number of grown- up married children to mourn their loss of a tender and considerate mcther. Priv. W. R. Bowen, ministerial student, Cwmgarw Road, Brynamman, who is with the Mediterranean Force, somewhere on the Salonica front, sec- tion R.A.M.C., sends an interesting letter home, in which he states that he is quite fit again, having just recovered from an attack of dysentery. He sends a photo in which he figures among a very interesting group, there being a Serbian, Roumanian, Englishman, and two Welshmen, the other Cymro being Priv. W. D. Jones, Llandyssul. Priv. Bowen describes the incident as a representative meeting of the Allied nations. Two other deputies, a Mace- donian and an Albanian, were too late to be included in the group. Another successful eisteddfod was held under the auspces of the Gibea Band of Hope, on Saturday evening, at the edifice named. There was a strong audience, the competitors were numerous, and the competitions of a high order of merit on the whole. The adjudicators were:—Literary, Mr. Dl.

CWMAMMAN. I On Monday, a War Savings Asso- ciation was established in connection with Glanamman Council School. The children responded splendidly, the takings for the first day amounting to £16.. The pulpit of Bethania (C.M.) Chapel was occupied last Sunday even- ing by Mr. Robert Ellis, Garnant, who is yet only 20 years of age, and works at the Raven Tinplate Works. He delivered a most impressive sermon. In the current issue of the Geninen, the Rev. Rhys J. Huws, Bryn Seion, has an able article, en- titled Gwerth." The article is char- acteristic of Mr. Huws' usual origin- ality and freshness of thought, and is written in chaste Welsh. At the eisteddfod held at Gibea Chapel, Brynamman, last Saturday, Mrs. Blodwen Jones-Davies shared the contralto solo with Madame Ceinwen Morris- Thomas, Gwaun-cae gurwen; while Miss Miriam Evans captured the open recitation competition, and Mr. Owen Morgans won the baritone solo. The death in action is recorded of Corpl. Arthur Hopkins, R.W.F., somewhere on the banks of the River Tigris. His wife received the sad news from the War Office last week. Arthur, previous to answering his coun- try's call, worked at the Raven Tin- plate Works. He was a native of Neath, but came to this district many years ago. The deepest sympathy is extended to the bereaved young widow and two children. At an examination at Cardiff recently, under the Home Office Department, Mr. Stuart Evans, Glan- amman, was successful in gaining a certificate as second class colliery mana- ger. Mr. Evans has also previously passed the lower examination in Coal Mining under the Board of Education, South Kensington. Mr. John Bevan, I Tirycoed Road, has also received the fireman's certificate at an examination held at Llanelly. The remains of the late Mrs. James, widow of the late David James (or better known as Dafis Bach "), who predeceased her m¥y years ago, were laid to rest last Tuesday afternoon at Bethesda burial-ground, in the pre- sence of a large number of mourners and sympathisers. Mrs. James, who was 71 years of age, was well known in the district, being of a kind and generous disposition. She leaves many children, all of whom are married. The funeral rites were performed by !he Rev. John Thomas, Bethesda. A very large crowd gathered at Bethesda Chapel to give a hearty wel- come to Driver Tom Davies, R.F.A., when home from the Front on ten days' leave. The Rev. J. Thomas presided, while Miss Otwen Thomas and Mr. Idris Morgans assisted the soloists at the piano. 'The following were the entertainers:—Miss Gwenny Rees, Miss Nellie Jones, Madame Llewelyn- George, Miss Nancy Jones, Mr. Willie Davies, Mr. Ben Jones, Mr. Stephen RogersSn, Mr. Owen Morgans, and Mr. Morgan R. Roberts. Mr. Edwin Rees (Ceidrim) also sang some verses of his own composition. The hero was presented with a substantial sum by the Chairman, which he suitably acknow- ledged. The Bethania Dramatic Society, known as Y Ddraig Goch," pre- sented their new drama, Richard Jones-Davies, Esq. at the Palace Theatre (kindly lent for the occasion by Messrs. Richards Bros. ), last Wednesday evening, to an overcrowded audience. In the unavoidable absence of Mr. Henry Folland, Frondeg, the chair was taken by the Rev. J. Ol iver, Bethania, at the request of Mrs. Henry Folland, who vvas present representing her husband. The accompanist was Mr. Griff. Lewis, F.T.S.C. Previous to perforrring the drama at the Palace, the company had already successfully presented it on two occasions at Gar- nant. They again did exceedingly well last Wednesday evening, and are to be congratulated upon their clever acting. There was not a dull moment in the fully three hours they occupied the stage.
GWAUN-CAE-GURWEN. I On Saturday next, the inhabitants of Gwaun-cae-gurwen and Cwmgorse will be greeted with the pleasant smiles of many ladies who will be selling flags and satchets on behalf of the- local Soldiers' and Sailors' Fund. It is unanimously agreed. that the local committee is dbing most excellent work for our local heroes, and as its funds have lately been very considerably depleted, the committee feels confident that the Flag Day will bring a very substantial sum. On Thursday evening, at Taber- nacle, Cwmgorse, two more of our local heroes were honoured, viz., Sergt. Peter Rees, who has been home on a few days' leave from Salonica, whither he returned last Monday; and Lce.-Corpl. W. R. Kendrick, who has seen much active service in Egypt and the Dardanelles, but is now em- ployed at the Cwmgorse Colliery. Mr. Rees Evans, C.M., presided, and Mr. Thomas Williams, Rock Shop, made the presentation on behalf of the Soldiers' and Sailors' Fund. Instead of a speech, Lce.-Corpl. Kendrick gave thanks by rendering a violin solo (accompanied by Master Edgar Grif- fi,ths), for which he was very enthu- siastically encored. The following con- tributed to the programme:— Jennie Ware, Irene Austin. Rachel Morgan. David Morris, Miss Theo Ja-res, Miss Nancy Jones, Mr. John O. Rees, Miss Morfydd Davies, Mr. John R.

WAR LOAN MEETING at Ammanford. I- SCHEME FOR SMALL INVESTORS. There was a good attendance of residents at the meeting held on Mon- day evening, in the Y.M.C.A., to consider the Urban Council's scheme to enable small investors to participate in the War Loan. Mr. J. Davies, Chairman of the Urban Council, presided, and said they all knew the Government needed man power and money power, and the object of that meeting was to get money from those who could not fight in person. The Council was ready to advance £ 5,000 in allotments of £ 20 to anyone who made application for them. Mr. T. M. Evans, M.A., Clerk to the Council, explained that on the 25th of last month the Council met to consider whether they should or should not borrow money with a view of in- vesting the same in the War Loan. It was felt they in this district should make a special effort to assist the Government at this stage of the great national crisis. He did not know that they were thankful enough for being so free from the horrors of war, but they felt the least they could do was to put their shoulders to the great national wheiel. It having been decided to borrow £ 5,000 for the purpose, he was instructed to enquire of the Local Government Board' whether such borrowing would be sanctioned. He received a reply. that there were no special powers conferred upon Councils to borrow, but Lord Rhondda sug- gested that the Council might by ar- rangement with their bankers invest a sum in the War Loan, and then re- allot it to residents of Ammanford in sums at the discretion of the Council, and repayable at a longer period of time than was granted by the War Loan. prospectus itself. The Council then set to work to formulate a scheme, which Mr. Evans proceeded to explain. Under this scheme the ratepayers have two years to pay the instalments. If a man applies for a £ 20 share he has to send S-3 with his application, and by eight quarterly instalments of £2 completes the purchase, thus getting his War Loan certificate of £ 20 for il9, and at the same time he receives interest on his instalments as they are paid, at the rate of 2t per cent., until the completion of the purchase, when, of course, the full interest of 5t per cent. is secured. If at any time the purchaser felt he could not keep up his repayments, he was at liberty to sell his s hare for what he had paid, and was therefore at no loss whatever on his investment. Aid. W. N. Jones then spoke in support of the scheme, pointing out that by purchasing a £20 lot, a clear profit of i. I was made at the start, and there was also interest at 2t per cent. until the lot was paid up. The scrip could be sold or transferred at any time, and there was no better security in the world. If this country was not worth fightin gfor, no other country was, and if it was not worth lending money to, no other country in the world was worth lending sixpence to. He stated he had a letter from Mr. Bonar Law, one of the finest business men, who said: The war, as it seems to me, has reached the position in which it is evident that the issue must largely depend upon the staying power of the competitors, and in my belief there is nothing which would do more to hasten a satisfactory peace than evidence of the financial stability of the United Kingdom, which would be shewn by the complete success of the War Loan." The Prime Minister, as they knew, had stated it was silver bullets that were going to win the war. Aid. Jones proceeded to g,ive a vivid resume of the events of the past 2i years, and observed that we had done wonders on every front, and to-day were stronger than ever we were; and if we only got a little more help, we would get through the Germans and accomplish the object, as set out by Mr. Asquith. with which we entered the war. We were fighting for liberty and everything that was worth fighting for, and we were asked by our brave lads who were fighting for us to send out more money, more guns, and more ammunition. How could we do that unless we subscribed to this War Loan? Ammanford was a patriotic town, and had done well; but it could 4c better. Just a few families in the place had subscribed £10,000 towards the War Loan, and by the aid of the small investors they could double that amount, and nothing would give them greater satisfaction or peace of mind than to know they had helped to bring back their own rela- tions and friends by subscribing to the War Loan. (Applause). The Chairman mentioned that the number of men from Ammanford Urban area now fighting was over 1.000. (Applause) Mr. Richards, J.P., Tirydail House; Councillor Wm. Evans, and Councillor D. George also spoke in support of the scheme. Mr. W. L. Smith, in proposing that the scheme be approved, asked whether they should not, individually and col- lectively, for the privilege of being able to follow peaceful pursuits and sit there to discuss such a scheme, be ready at once to go home and decide to put all their spare cash in the War Loan? Mr. Roberts, Heol Las, seconded the motion, which was carried unani- mously. Votes of thanks to the Chairman and speakers concluded the meeting.
