THE NEATH PROGRAMME OIVIC ARRANGEMENTS PREMIER'S ARRIVAL LAST NIGHT i Neath has bathed in the Sea of Song; as far as the music was concerned the tide rose high. To-day no breakwater can calm the tempest of enthusiasm whick the Prime Minister's visit to Caetellnedd will inspire. This enthusiasm will have the true ring of sincerity, of affection, and of loyalty. The citizens of Neath fully realise and appreciate the honour which the Prime Minister is conferring upon the town by tearing himself away from strenuous and important National affairs to receive the honorary freedom of the ancient borough, and to participate in the great National Singing Festival. The Prime Minister's arrival in Neath last night settled all conjectures. Thou- sands awaited his arrival at the Station entrance; on the platform were the Mayor (Aid. Hopkin Morgan, C.B.E., J.P.), Major W. B. Trick, M.B.E., J.P., and a host of others to give tiie distinguished Welshman a civic welcome. The cheers of the crowd inside, were taken up by the crowds outside, and as the Prime Minister stepped into the waiting car, a vociferous cheer went up; hats were thrown into the air, people rushed to the oar to shake hands, and as the vehicle moved slowly through the cheering crowd, the Prime Minister acknowledged the reception with a smile. In the pilot car was the Chief Constable of the Borough (Mr. Wm. Higgins), and all along the route to Maesygwernen (the residence of Mr. t. J. Williams, M.P.), the Prime Minister and his party received a tremendous ovation. ¡ TO-DAY'S PROGRAMME. I The order of to-day's proceedings is as follows:— I.-Prel',m i nary. 9.30 a.m.—The 5th V.B.

Edwin C. Curtis, Town Clerk. THE GWYN HALL. I The scheme of decoration at the Gwyn Hall, whero the ceremony will take place, has been carried out by Messrs. Ben Ev-inu, Swansea. The interior has been lavishly draped; tapestry, bunting, flags and mottoes blend-inz harmoniously in colour and sentiment. The reception rooms have been magnificently furnished, and under the official guidance of Mr. D. IT. Davies, engineer to the Neath liural District Council, nothing haa been apaftd to make the ceremony the sufloeas which tho occasion demands. Major W. B. Trick, M.B.E., J.P., kas been the guid- ing light of the civic arrangements, and Mr. Alfred C. Curtis, Deputy Town Clerk, I has carried out the details with great skill and ability. I THE CASKET. I The casket has been supplied by Messrs. Davies and Sons, jewellers, Neath. It is of solid silver in early English, design, beautifully chased, and mounted upon an oak plinth and blue silk velvet. In the oentro of the cover is the borough arms, and two medallions of Neath Abbey and the ruins of Neath Castle.

He is a Justice of the Peace for the county and borough, and h86 been one of the pioneers of the Neath National Eisteddfod.
"THE YELLOW TICKET." I "The Yellow Ticket," the Russian play to be presented at the Grand Theatre next week, deals with life in Russia before the King Wit of the Czar's Government was re- placed by the King Stork of the BolsheviM. Under the Czar, women of a certain class were provided with a distinctive yellow passport to indicate their calling, and, cir- cumstances having thrust one of these odi- ous labels upon a perfectly innocent woman the dramatio possibilities are obvious. Mr. Miss Dorothy Dix, who plays the part of "Marya Varenka" in "The Yellow Ticket" at the Grand Theatre, Swansea, next week. f"" — Michael Morton, the author, has taken very advantage of these possibilities, and the reault is one of the most absorbing and thrilling plays ever written. The excellent oompany is under the management of Messrs. Murray King and Clark, who were responsible for the beautiful representation of Romance," which packed the Grand on its visit here. i —

I CARMARTHEN. At St. Marylebone Parish Church, Lon- don, on Thursday, the wedding took place of Mr. Frederick T. Brigstocke, second son of Mr. T. E. Brigstocke, J.P., and 4 ?stoc k e, J. P and Mrs. Brigstocke, Carmarthen, and Miss Patricia Lloyd, elder daughter of the Rev. J. Francis Lloyd, Llanilar Vicarage, Card. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Percy Thompson, vicar of Kip- penton, Se\'ciioaks. The bride was given iaway by her father, and was attended as I br-idesmaid by her sister, Miss Marjory Lloyd. The best man was Capt. A. C. Snow, R.F.A., a cousin of the bridegroom.
I I CWMAMMAN. Cwmamman was thrilled on Wednesday <*vMu when the news was received that jt:; popular contralto, ATad-amo Blodwen Jones-Davies, of Cawdor House, Glan- amman, had won the prize for the con- tralto solo at the National Eisteddfod at Neath out of such an array of talent-46 fit number. The victory is the more creditable because she was pitied against the leading vocalists of the country, and had never before competed at the National Eisteddfod—obtaining the blue ribbon at vh) first time of asking, as it were. Madame Jones-Davies has won many not- able victories on previous occasions, but this time she has fairly eclipsed herself, and Cwmamman is justly proud of her. It may be stated that she is the first Cwmamman vocalist to gain National honours. She comes of a well-known Valley musical stock, both her fatb&r and mother being at one time vocalists of re- ■ pute. Great credit is also cLji* to her teacher—Mr. John Morgan, the well- known Garnant musician. This is really a double event for Cwmamman because both are the locality's own, and it speaks much of the teacher's musical abilities, as he had- to fight against some of .the best musical brains of the country. How hearty congratulatiuns to both.
GLANAMMAN. A military funeral was accorded at Llanelly on Thursday to Pte. Martin Hopkins, of the South Wales Borderers, who died at his home, 7, Jones-terrace, Glanamman. Deceased was a native of Llanelly, his father being Mr Hopkins, formerly licensee of the leaven Inn. Pte. Hopkins, who before the var was a tin- plater, had eeen service in Gallipolv and, France, but he was wounded and re- moved about three weeks ago from Beech- wood Park Hospital, Newport, to his home at Glanamman, where he died of" pneumonia on Saturday.v

Mr. John Thomas, with- a handsome marble timepiece on the occasion of his With birthday. The gift was handed over by Councillor Edward Sherlock, the chairman of the committee. A resolution has been passed by the Llanelly Branch of the Discharged Sail- ors' aud Soldiers' Federation, viewing with surprise and disgust the action of the Town Council in appointing Mr. Montgomery (deputy surveyor) as fuel ovcrsGCT for the borough of Llanelly, as we consider the Post ought to have been advertised and an opportunity given to a discharged sailor or soldier who is cap- able of undertaking the duties of over- I necr and would be glad of remuneration"
IFAMOUSM FOR SWANSEA. i I A picture which has created much discus- sion-Evelyn Thaw in Shadows on my Life"—is about to be shown for the first time in Swanaea at the Theatre Royal. The fao-, that Evelyn Thaw plays the leading part in the film is responsible for the great amount of attention that has been given to it In the picture the chief actress lifts the curtain a little on the painful struggle to provide for herself and boy since the notorious case in which she figured, and in which iJ. may be recalled, she alone cf the dramatis persollW woo a meed of publio sympathy. Evelyn Thaw believes that in pictures she is carrying out a. hea\ en-sent mission. In "Shadows on my Life" she shows how she has fought a gallant fight to right herself with society. The picture, while dramatic, is thoroughly clean, and has been pafesed without comment by the censor. It will be shown exclusively at the Theatre toyal during the entire week beginning August 12th. rII'('888A, ¿j

NOT ENOUGH FAT. Llanelly Protest Against New Workhouse Diet. At their meeting on Thursday, the i Llanelly Guardians again passed a reso- lution emphatically protesting against the new diet table issued by the Local Government Board for inmates in the workhouses. In the course of the discus- sion Lady Howard said there was pot. enough fat in the new diet to keep the iiimates in health. Mr. Wm. Pugh said he was ashatned that such a diet was given to the inmates, some of whom were there through no fault of their own. Lady Howard said it seemed extra- ordinary that no protest had been made by other unions. Mr. Griiflth'Harry: Can't we get the game diet given to the Government offi- cials? They are not .-e worthy of a better diet. Lady Howard: We have already pro- tested to the Local Government Board, and they have absolutely refused our re- quest to allow us to make any additions to the diet. t
