In con- junction with the late Prof. Macngwyn Davies he took an active part in the es- tablishing of a Summer School of Voice Training at Llandudno Junction. His organ recitals at the Conway Church were among the most interesting and popular musical features of the borough. Shortly after deceased came to Conway, his parents emigrated from St. Asaph to America.

Ho was the son of Mr and Mrs Williams, formerly of the Ship Hotel, Banger, and whs educated at Friars School, proceeding thence to Ox. ford, where he took his degree.

SCARLET FEVER AND I DIPHTHERIA. A WARNING TO THE PUBLIC. I (By the Times' Medica! Correspondent). I It is announced that owing to the pre- I valence of scarlet fever and diphtheria in various parts of the country orders have been issued at Aldershot that men return- ing from leave are to be medically ex. amined forthwith. This is but another in. dication of the serious character of the epidemic to which attention has been oalled so often in the Times. Reports on Friday, indeed, suggest that the spread of the two infections is so far Unchecked. The public can do something towards helping itself by calling in medical aid a.t the first symptom of illness which is usually a sore throat. There should be no attempt to hide any case, for this action may cost a life. Even mild mws of diphtheria are apt to prove very seri- oua in their after-effects, especially in the case of children. If they are neglected a great weight of responsibility is incur- red. This is only one treatment for diph- theria, but it is an exceedingly efficacious j one—the use of anti-diphtheria serum. The sooner this is given the brighter are the prospects for the patient To delay summoning medical aid is thus not only foolish, but in the highest degree danger. out and culpable.
BANGOR UNIVERSITY COLLEGE. I TECB MOCK ASSIZE. The term come to an end on Wednesday, and most of the students left for home yesterday mommg for the Christmas hoh- ye5twda ?gi4 wiu retum on January 4th. To mark the end of tho tem, and as a tonic after the exhaustion caused by the "terminals!" a conversazione was held on Wednesday night, when the play. "Lib- erty HaU," was performed. The principal parts were taken by Miss Sara Marks, Miss G. Richardson^ Mr Russell Jones, Mr 0. WiHianM, Mr Eric Robinson Mr A. Antony, Mr G. W. Robinson, Mr J. P. Jones, Miss Kling, Miss G. Edwards, and Mr Latham Hughes. After the recent ParLiamentary election, four "serious charges" were prefetred against the Labour candidate (Mr W. P. Williams)—(a) that he gave S1000 to a cer- tain dealer in fish and fried potatoes to treat the students with his comestibles; (b) that he gave Mr Bow en ITiomas, Coali- tion candidate, a cheque for 1143d to with- draw his candidature (e) that he "bribed" Mia., Ceinwen JJovd Hughes to "smug- gle" terminal papers; and (d) that he trcai-ed several officers of the Students' Representati ve Council to dinner at the British Hotel on the previous evening. The charges were duly heard at the 'Varsity Winter Assizes, which were open- ed last Friday, before Mr Justice Valen- tine, who was accompanied on the bench by two other judges. Jones and Mr J. P. Davies. Counsel for the prosecution wero Mr Emrys Thomas, K.C., and Mr Simon Jones, and for the defence Mr Emlyn Jones, K.O., and Mr T. H. Jones appeared. I THE WITNESSES. -1 There was a long array of witnesses, in- oluding the "Duchess of Siliwen," Shan Gocli," "Ap Owen o'r Goran," "Twm Tomeu y Byd," "Llwyd Bach," and Shon Valla." The cross-examination of the witnesses, on very unorthodox lines, evoked a good deal of fun. The jury, of which Yr Eegob Brig- gooh" was foreman, found the prisoner guilty, and the Lord Chief Justice dedi- vered judgment. He said such criminal) act. must bo severely punished, and the prisoner would be compiled to take a seat on the Senate of the college a.nd eat a rice pudding in the prese-noe of the Court. The aentenoe was evidently known beforehand, as a dish of rioe pudding was instantly produced, and set before the prisoner, who appeared to thoroughly en- joy tli is part of the sentence, and took rather generous helpings. The Lord Chief Justice then descended from the bench, a.nd to the astonishment of the Court asisasted the prisoned' to consume the pud- dine. I SERENADING. I The time-honoured custom of serenading tho lady students staying at the Hostel was duly observed on Tuesday night, and until a. late hour they sang a medley of tunes for the delectation of the fair ones, and to the great aniioyailee of household- ers whose slumbers were disturbed. For- tunately, there was no repetition of the contretemps which occurred some years ago, when the serenading was at its height. Acting on the instructions of someone in authoritv-v, ho, it-never trail- spjrcd a, number of policemen hid behind the .Hostel walls, and they chased the students with sticks. Some of the students retaliated, and a melee occurred. The College Authorities complained to the then Chief OonstabLe, and for a time the local police were deprived from the privilege of carrying sfticks whilo on night duty. The College "Thirty Club," a very ex- clusive Institution, had a dinner at the Castle Hotel, on Tuesday evening.
ABERYSTWYTH STUDENTS' I 1-N-ION. PROJECT ENCOURAGED BY MRS I LLOYD GEORGE. At tho invitation of Mrs Lloyd George, about 150 old students of Aberystwyth Col- lege, now resident in London, attended a meeting at 10, Downing-stireet, on Satur- day afternoon, for the purpose of consider- ing the question of forming a Students' Union, a project in which the wife of the Prime Minister is keenly interested. One aim of the meeting was to obtain addi- tional support for the proposed union, and to make that organisation a memorial of the founders of the college and of those, college students who fell during the re- cent war. Sir Ellis Griffith, one of the oldest, if not the oldest, cx-student of Aberystwyth now in London, was among those present. A very enjoyable concert wa. provided and a few speeches were delivered. Sir Alfred Dav ies, permanent scretary of tho Welsh Department of tho Board of Edu- cation, gave a brief history of the college, and urged that in view of the great poli- ticjvl and social problems to be faced in the future, the value of the proposed union -would be verv great, apart from its com- memorative character. Major Ainsworth Davis spoke in sup- port of the project, and Sir Ellis Griffith added his persuasive advocacy, remark- ing. amid laughter, that the importance of Wales in national and international con- cerns was bound to increase under the in- fluence of a Welsh PTimo -l1istêr and his excellent Welsh wife. Mr Herbert Lewis, M.P.. aho spoke in support of the union, and at the eoncJu- sion of the meeting. Mrs Lloyd George entertained tho whole of tier guests at tea.
I BACH ORATORIO AT I ABERYSTWYTH. Raah's Christmas Oratorio" was heard for the first time in the Aberystwyth dis- trict last week, the work being rendered on two successive nights by the College Choanal Union, under the coaiduotcwship of Dr. Waiford Davies. The first perform- ance was given on Wednesday 4ight, at the Calvinist-ic Methodist Chapel, and the second on Thursday night, at St. Michael's Church. The choir was assisted by a capable orchestra, while the artistes were Mr W. R. All-on (bass), Miss Dilys Jones (alto), and Mr T. Pickering (tenor). The ora- torio was followed by a dhorus, Unto us a Child is born" ("Messiah"), and the singing of carols.

A prosperous future for the Church was assured if tier members could learn to break down all the narrow, paroch- ial. and even diocese feeling.; al.-o if laymen could be taught to give generously, fur the maintenance of their Church.
I A CURATE S DIFFICULTIES. WELSH CLERIC WHO CHANGED HIS NAME IN ENGLAND. Explaining his failure to appear on the date originally fixed for his bankruptcy ex- amination at Burton-on-Trent, on Thurs- day, the Rev. Eilaid IXavies said he was soized with something like stage fright. Ho owed P.500, of which £ 577 was due to money-lenders. t After graduating he was curate at Aber- dare at £ 120 yoarly, then a teacher at Oolwyn and Uttoxeter at £ 150. Later he beeame curate at Leigh at 25s weekly, wiiii house, ooa.1, and vegetables. He had to support a wife and two children. His salary was recently ra.i sed to E4. A yeaa- ago, in desperation, he sought the aid of money-lenders. He had borrowed from fourteen of them L377, paying interest at the rate of 150 per cent. He borrowed £ 100 from one and gave a bill of sale on the Rector's furniture, unaware that it would have to be registered. He had banked in an assumed name, and later in his wife's name, she being far better than himself at business. He had changed his name when he came to England because it was I Welsh. The examination was dosed. t
I ST. CYBI'S CHURCH, HOLYHEAD. A correspondent with the nom de pumc "Viatoc*,writies as follows to the London Guardian :— "The ancient harbour roadway up to the Church of St. Cybi, founded about A.D. 550, must appeal to ;aitiquarians who will sympathise with the complaint of a correspondent in a local newspaper at the. removal of the gateway, and its re. placement by a hideous wa,.1. which en- tirely obliterated the entraneo to tho flight of steps leading up to the Church.

I THE DOUGLAS PENNANT INQUIRY. I LORD AMPTHILL'S COMMENT. Lord Ampthill, in a statement on the Douglas Pennant inqpiry, says: "I do not think that those who pressed for an in- quiry into the case of the dismissal of Miss Violet Douglas Pennant have any reason to regret their action..What is to be re- gretted is that the case was presented in such a manner that the Committee were oblige-d to pronounce judgment- upon per- sonal charges which were not fully re- levant to the real issue, and were not sup- ported by sufficient evidence. The find- ing on those charges was no doubt cor- roct, and must not be questioned, but it is open to question whether that finding might not have been expressed in terms more consonant with the judicial temper which usually characterises official reports. The Government have only themsel ves to thank for the persistent- de- mand for an inquiry which was made both in Parliament and outside. If Lord Weir had given an ordinary answer instead of a 'Parliamenta.ry answer,' and if the Government had not repeatedly promised an inquiry and then shown that they had no intention whatever of fulfilling the pledges then given, the demand for an inquiry would never have been pressed. Nothing has happened to alter the be- lief widely held that Miss Douglas Pennant was dismissed—not 'superseded'—in an arbitrary and unjust manner. The ques- tion whether or not she was a euitable person for the post which she had held had nothing whatever to do with that issue. Even the most incompetent public servant is entitled to justice, and it was never oven pretended that Miss Douglas Pennant was incompetent. The Com- mittoo directed that the minutes of pro- ceedings, together with the evidence, should be laid before the House of Lords; but so far as I have been able to ascer- tain, they have not yet been published. Until this is done, it will not bo possible to make a full criticism of this unsatis- factory inquiry. For instance, I have a recollection of an important statement made in evidence by General Sir Godfrey Paine in regard to Hurst Park which seems to have been disregarded by the Commit- tee of Inquiry in their general findings. Again, let me caU attention to paragraphs 52 to 54 of the report which relate to Mrs Kitto. You may bo able to understated them, but to me the most perplexing thing about the whole business is the fact that this witness, who was actually in court, was not called." FURTHER REFERENCE IN THE I HOUSE OF LORDS. Lord Hylton, in the House of Lords, on Monday, moved that the report of the the report of tlo Committee which inquired into the Hon. Violet Douglas Pennant's dismissal from the command of the W.R.A.F., be con- sidered. Lord Stanhope, in a personal statement, apologised unreservedly for inaccurate statements made in their lordships House in July last. He unreservedly withdrew charges of immorality against a colonel and a certain lady and all other persons to whom he had referred. He desired publicly to express his regret to Colonel Jan.son and Miss Glubb. He added tha-t I d paid all Miss Glubb's costs in the inquiry. The Marquis of Salisbury (U) said that tile inquiry was held upon information which was not correct, but ought to have been correct. At the same time it had cleared away a cloud of unfortunate sus- picions which had been engendered. There had been a suggestion, which was a false one, that the House had been actuated by unworthy motives, but he did not beheve that that was the case, but that, on the other hand, the House was actuated by a desire to see that justice was done. He hoped that the result of the inquiry would not act as a restraint upon the House in doing their duty in inves- i tigating any abuses or grievance-s where they thought they existed. The report was accepted.
