Works Presentation I MR. AND MRS. E. P. LEWIS CELE- BRATE THEIR SILVER WEDDING. Mi-. and Mrs. E. P. Lewis have just celebrated their silver wedding and have received the congratulations of their numerous friends on so auspicious an anniversary. The employees of the South Wales Works, however, where Mr Lewis is the esteemed manager, decided to mark the event in more tangible fashion, and on Saturday, Mr. and Mrs. Lewis were their guests at an enthusias- tone of the gathering was most cordial, tic meeting at the St. Peter's Hall. The affording eloquent testimony—if it were needed—of the happy relationship that exists between employers and employed at these well-known works. The chair was occupied by Mr. H. Parry, of the tinplate department, who referred in felicitous terms to the re- spect in which Mr. Lewis was held by all sections of the employees. He also paid a graceful tribute to their mana- ger's "better half." Amid loud applause, Mrs. Jayne and Mrs. Palmer then handed to Mrs. Lewis from the ladies' committee of the Joint War Relief Fund a silver asparagus dish while Mr. John Williams, Vittoria street, presented Mr. Lewis with a solid silver tea and coffee service. Mr. Lewis returns thanks. I On rising to return thanks, Mr. E. P. Lewis came in for a great ovation. It was difficult for him, he said, to give adequate expression to his feelings on such an occasion. He had been deeply moved by the kindly thought that prompted them to honour his wife and himself that night. The presentation of such magnificent gifts had touched him keenly, realizing as he did that behind the gifts, and of course, far more pre- cious, was the goodwill and esteem of his friends at the works. Besides, he could not put forward any claim to such consideration, because in all his rel a- tions with employers and employed, he had only done his duty. "The thirteen years I have spent in Llanelly," he continued, "have been the happiest ones in my life. When I came here I found everybody so helpful, thoughtful and kind, that though a stranger in a strange land, I was confi- dent that the kind hearts at Richard Thomas and Co., Ltd., would soon put me at ease, and would help me to hap- piness by their hearty co-operation and sympathetic assistance, and I must say I was not disappointed. I have attempt- ed throughout to return sympathy for sympathy, help for help, and thought- fulness for thoughtfulness, doing that which I considered to be just and fair, and following the dictates of my con- science in all things. Like everyone else, I have made mistakes, but such mis- takes have been overlooked by all with a forbearance such as that which in- spired the poet who wrote, "To err is human, to forgive divine." What the future holds out no one can tell, but I sincerely hope that the bonds of mutual trust and good fellowship will be con- tinued throughout. Though Peace was signed to-day, we must not delude our- selves that we have come to our jour- ney's end; the way is etill fraught with peril and danger, and until the unrest throughout the world is settled, we must go on as we have in the past, working hand in hand with the same common in- terest, and with unceasing efforts. Peace promises plenty, but the fruits are now in an early stage of growth, and it is our duty to shield them from the wrecking winds of discord and from the destroy- ing blight of political strife." During the evening a very fine musi- cal programme was gone through, which was as follows :—Pianoforte solo, Miss May Davies; solo, Miss Maggie Davies; solo, Mr. T. H. Harry; duet, Misses Maggie Davies and S. A. Jinos; silo, Mr W. G. Saunders; recitation, Mr. Tal J Evans; solo, Miss S. A. Jones; solo, Mr Haydn Henshaw; duet, Messrs. Harry j and Saunders. The accompanist was j Mrs. R. J. Jones, Stepney place. j The Chairman then moved a vote of thinks which Mr. Owen Jones seconded, to the artistes and accompanist for the admirable manner in which they had ac- ,i,'?m i ra b le ma qnitted themselves. Councillor Evan Roberts proposed a vote, of thanks to the Chairman for the able way in which he carried out his duties, and Mr. G. H. Stacey seconded. A very enjoyable evening was brought to close by the singing of "God Save the K;ng." Mr. J. Anthony acted as secre- tary of the committee which organised the presentation.
