James Da vies and Jos. Roberts, Council- lors E. Willis Jones, W. E. Clement, Rev. Trevor Jones and Mrs. Phillips. Officers Uniforms.

It was I I decided that the matter be referred to the Staffing Comrittee with a. view to I economizing as far as possible. I Compulsory Powers. I In view of the withdrawal by Mr. Evan Thomas, junr., of his offer to sell certain land at Llanerch to the Corporation for a housing scheme, the Town Clerk has been instructed to take the necessary steps for the compulsory acquisition of this land. Suggested Slaughterhouse Extension. I The Medical Officer reported the visit of Dr. Shaw of the Local Government Board to the Slaughterhouse, and indi- cated the opinions expressed by this gentleman as to the accommodation. The Town Clerk also read a letter from Messrs. Roderick and Richards inquiring ir the Council were prepared to sell the freehold strip of land forming part of the property knwn as Bythway's Brewery. The Medical Officer, Veterinary In- spector end the Surveyor have been in- structed to prepare a report as to struc- tural alterations; cost involved and also upon the suggestion of erecting a new slaughterhouse near the Railway Station. Clean Milk. I The Health Committee suggest the ad- visability of drawing the attention of the Education Committee to the usefulness of providing lectures with lantern slides in the various schools for the education of the school children with reference to this important subject. Llanerch Allotments. I The Deputy Borough Surveyor- reported that he had receiveg various claims for compensation in respect of the above and that same had been forwarded to the Local Government Board. The Library. I The Library Committee have been in- tructed h deal with an application from Miss Boulton to he granted a permanency as assistant at the Library. She was ap- pointed temporarily when Mr. Hopkins joined up, and now Mr. Hopkins has ac- cepted a position on the Rate Collector's staff. Ald. Griffiths made a plea for a discharged soldier, but it was pointed out that no ex-soldiers would apply for this position. Dental Surgeon. I The Corporation on Monday adopted a recommendation of the Maternity and Child Welfare Committee for the appoint- ment of a dental surgeon at a salary of £ 350, increasing by annual increments of t20 to £450, and a fully qualified nurse at a salary of C100 per annum plus uni- form. Under the resolution it was agreed that the Education Committee bear two- thirds of the expense and the Infant Welfare Committee—with the consent of the Local Government Board—to pay one-third of the cost. Swiss Valley. 1 Councillor Clement made a timely pro- test on Monday against the continuance of the war-time restrictions at Cwm- Iliedi. He pointed out that Swiss Valley was a favourite holiday haunt and sum- mer walk and there was no reason why the public should not now be allowed to take their walks there. Ald.

The matter will now come before the Waterworks Committee.
Municipal Offices. I CHAMBER OF COMMERCE TO HAVE NOTICE TO QUIT. The Chamber of Commerce are to be served with notico to quit. This is one of the steps decided upon by the Corpor- ation with the object of providing in- creased accommodation for several muni- cipal departments.

It has also been decided to terminate the tenancy of the Old Town Hall by Mr. j Wm. David, J.P., and to utilize the building as a Health Centre. There, Dr. Francis and his staff will have their head- quarters. The Deputy Surveyor suggests that the lower portion of the building would admirably serve as a Child Welfare Centre, the estimated cost of converting the premises for this purpose being t200. The adoption of this arrangement will re- lease rooms in the Town Hall which are badly wanted by the Town Clerk and the Borough Surveyor.

One of the defendants, Josiah Ray, stated that he was only defending his father in a family affair. In reply to the Bench the defendants stated they were out of work, but were "pegging." Supt. Jones reported previous convic- tions against the father, but these were many years ago. Since that time he had ived a very straight life. Presiding Magistrate (Mr. W. Y. Nevill) It is a great pity that both rather and son should be charged to- gether with drunkenness. I would like tc impress on you to keep away from the drink. Both defendants were fined 10s.

Whitsun Sports. I TWO DAYS' RACING AT HALFWAY. I Encouraged by the success of the race meeting-and sports on Saturday last at Halfway Park, the promoters have ar- ranged for a further meeting on Whit- Monday and Tuesday, as there are no other outdoor attractions of any descrip- tion in the district. With a view of at- tracting the best competitors, larger prizes are being offered than usual, the prize money amounting to tl25. There will be t25 in the trotting. Other events include boys races (both days), whippet racing, 300 yeards flat, 220 yards flat. There are two horse races each day. Nearly all the owners who sent horses last Saturday propose to compete again, including Mr. Lewis, Llandilo, with Happy Boy, on both days, and Mr. Leonard Jones' Mary Twist. The en- tries for the t25 sprint are likely to con- stitute record. Refreshments will be provided on the ground. THE FEAST OF WEEKS. I The Jewish Feast of Weeks or Pente- cost occurred this year on Wednesday and Thursday last. The latter and more popular term which, derived from the Greek, denotes "the fiftieth," and the former which is the purely Scriptural designation used by the Jews, are both expressive of one and the same idea. For, the Jews were enjoined, after the num- bering and lapse of forty-nine days or seven weeks from the second day of Passover, to set apart the fiftieth day for thanksgiving and rejoicing, when the first fruits of the fresh wheat harvest were to be presented in the Temple. It is the second of the three festivals that were characterised by a joyous re- union of Jews from all parts at their national shrine. Tradition, however, asserts that day to have synchronized with the Divine Revelation on Mount Sinai. Thus, this festival, if it is indeed bereft of practcal relevancy in so far as its original import is concerned, is nevertheless an occasion of pre-eminent significance to landless Israel. And, by way of commemorating that most stu- pendous and most momentous event— which to our grief and misfortune, even present day humanity is flagrantly re- pudiating by its acts-the Ten Command- ments together with the passages relating to the phenomenal scenes around the Mount were specially read during the morning service at the Synagogue. Final- ly, it is interesting to mention that the more studious and pious Jews spend the quiet and inspiring hours of the Festival night in reading for themselves a sum- mary of the whole Jewish Bible and the Mishnah. The Rev. M. J. Feldman, minister of the local Hebrew congregation, preached at the Synagogue, Queen Victoria road on Wednesday, his theme being: "The Giving and the Taking of the Law."

It is Said That a local engineer who is trying to "curry" favour with the manager by tell- ing tales about his colleagues is not add- ing to his popularity. That a curious thing is that he boasts of being a "great sport." That his ideas of sportsmanship need to be revised. That a certain cure for swelled head is to pfiuse and think how many people there are in the world who have never heard of you.' That ihe above advice is being given to a local clerk who has recently been "telling the tale." That his tale of having invented per- petual motion has been "passed on to the marines" by special request of his friends. That the light fantastic people now herald the ccming of barefooted dancing. That this will appeal especially to the enthusiasts who really have their "sole" in it. That now that the Derby is over we commend the Halfway races on Monday and Tuesday to our readers. That unfortunately we cannot publish a special racing edition, or neither can we boast of a horse that is "certain" to win"—Oh memories of ye Victory Derby. That the- sentiments exp «Cv:>d by two young flappers on other on the beach on Tuesday made people who were near wish they were dear. That in the words of a spark, they would make an old drill sergeant blush. That if their pa's only knew, what a different tale there would be to tell. That the adventures of "Sammy and his skaw hat" are causing no end of amusement at the Liberal Club. That on Tuesday he gallantly went fbrth for a motor ride, wearing for the occasion his latest "straw." That while the car was speeding its way towards Tumble, the nasty wind blew away his four-and-elevenpenny. That when the driver stopped the car and offered to recover the lost property he proudly remarked: "Don't worry, I've many others." That judging by his latest head-gear, i+ would have been a wise plan if he had allowed the driver to do so. That great excitement prevailed down the Dock district when it was rumoured that a case of suspected rabies had been discovered. That many dogs in consequence were placed in quarantine-out the back. That it now transpires that the sus- pected case was not a dog—but a lady (?) That full details are not yet available, but we understand the cause of all the gnashing of teeth, and hubby being badly bitten was because he offered his pay to the "dog minus the pay ticket. That the unceasing efforts of a young cricketer (?) to rise to fame as a bowler have at last met with success. That he has been appointed third re- serve bowler to a local cricket club. That a young flapper actually arrived punctual to time at her office a few morn- ings ago. That the office staff consider that the efforts of the young "Dolly" should not be allowed to pass without some mark of appreciation. That we can assure them that a pair of red stockings to match her red cap as a presentation, would be a step in the right direction. That jam can now be purchased by the ton. That some people are wondering whether the prospects of a good crop of turnips are responsible for this. That a young couple had rather a "damp" experience on the sands the other evening. That "the world forgetting" they strolled along in blissful ignorance of the fact that the tide was cutting them off. That a scamper for dry land followed ir. which the young lady was carried "Peek-a-bo" fashion. That the Tank had a troublesome journey before reaching its destination on Thursday. That the same trouble was experienced in Carmarthen. That two knuts had a cheap bathe one day this week. That they went to the Sands minus the necessary articles. That not to be done out of a swim they borrowed a couple of bathing costumes from two young ladies.
