I I, DEEPLY RESENTED- I i ￼ I Prime Minister's Absence from House.! A b sence from HouseI. f j Addressing the Scottish Liberal Federa- ? tiOll, at Edinburgh, to-day, Sir Donald jilaclean said he did not attach much Ün- | portance to the adverse vote in the House ot Commons. It was not necessarily jiatal. but very unfortunate. He believed jthe Government would put it right on f Monday. There might, however, be a great deal more behind the event than the particular issue. i The House had determined to re-assert I ,> it* independence, and the continued neg- 1ect of the House hy the Prime Minister was dJ eeply resented. 4 1 THE COMING FIGHT. 4- ii I .U.

j MORRISTON. I j Coun. J. Bryn Edwards' Candidature. A public meeting in support of the can- didature of Councillor J. B. Edwards, M.A., LL.B., who is E-Cekiug re-election in the Mornistou Ward, was held at ;h4e Tabernacle Schoolroom, on Friday Evening. Mr. W. J. Lew's, J.P., who presided, flR,r) he regretted it was necessary for Mr. Ldwards to have to contest the seat again nfter po short a period as 12 months, and further stated i'l was a pity that half-a- dozen men should dictate to the whole of the ratepayers of Morriston and force a cou e«t. THE CANDIDATE. I The candidate, ?ho was well received, said he d?d not w?sn to see Labour 6epa ra- ted from the rest of the oommunkr. ? hat they Re&ded was co-operation. He thought Mr. Marten, his op?ncn?, repre- -nted a pcli?cal organiMtion wh,;ch was inclined to pull down vhe preesnt system "without having thought out what to put in its place. Why elect, a man who be- longed to 6uch an organisation. whose I*. 1"cy was destructive and not construc- tive. He dealt a;t some lengstli with the housing question, which was most acute, but did not favour luxury schemes having regard to the pr^&en-t high rates. He had been their representative for 12 months only, but during that short perio-l "here were many questions he had brought before the notice of the ouiic 11, ond particularly emphasised his actvify in connection with an improved tramway Rvfitem. He asked the electors of Mor- riston to be consistent. Twelve monrhs ago he had gained the confidence ot tho electorate, aud believed his services had been such as to weriz a renewal of that confidence. LONG SERVICE FOR MORRISTON, I Counoillor Morgan E. Rees said hk- could personally testify to the efficiency .cf Mr. Edwards on the Council. Tli-L, high opinion in which he was held was amply tee-tified by the faat that he had been chosen on many of the most im- I portant commit «-es, viz., the Housing Tramway, Education, Finance, and MaÜD Drainage Scheme Committee?. He had gained the confidence of the whole 01 ttio Council. Councillor D J. Davies, J.P., sa:d Mr Edwards cam from a rtocli iliatt had reD dered faithful services to Morriston in the past, and thai Councillor Edwards was continuing those services. Referring I I() the housing scheme, he said there was "unanimity amongst all parlies. They were doing their best, but they were so j hampered by Government departments ;hat they were not ge<ih:ng on af fast '\9 I they should like Of Mr. Jidwards he could say that he had the courage of hie convictions. His services were such tha > they could give him a longer apprentice- clvp than U monrhs. Mr. John Th aia- Mr. R. G. Clarry. Major T. R. Harris, and Mr. Alf Morgan also spoke. tOn the motion of Mr. James Samuel, seconded by Mr. J. Hawkins, a vote of confidence in the cand:da/:e was carried.

REVENUE FRAUDS. Detected By Lady Clerk Henry A. Garnett, Frank J. Garnett, and Arthur T. Garnett, trading as J. Garnett and Co., saddlers, London and Enfield, pleaded guilty at the Old Bailey oil Friday to conspiring to defraud the revenue of large sums due from income- tax and excess profits duty. e ￼ d that the irm The prosecution alleged that the firm had sent in false statements and re- turns in respect of their income and profits. When discovered, through the skill of a temporary lady clerk in the Inland Revenue Department, Henry Garnett wrote to the surveyor of taxes that temptation came and they fell." The Inland Revenue had lost in the years 1910 to 1917 L946 income-tax, and £ 8,067 excess profits duties. Replying to the judge, counsel said the net profits of the firm in pre-war 'years were about £ 1,500 a year, and in 1916 £ 3,400. Counsel fcr the defence said Henry Grnett, knowing that the war pros- perity could not continue, had put away every penny he could for his wife and children. It was all invested in War ttoans or Government certificates, and he had lived meagerly. Defendants were willing to restore the full amount of which the revenue had been de- frauded. SEVEN YEARS' FRAUD. I j Mr. Justice Salter, in passing sentence, said the defendants had pleaded guilty to [ ft fraud extending over a period of seven veers which had involved the taking for themselves of something over £9,000 of the country's money. He could not deal with the ea-se by way of a fine and he sentenced Henry Garnett th eight monthf: im- prisonment in the second division, and the other two defendants to six months' imprisonment, each in the second divi- sion. He also ordered that each of the defendants should pay one-third; of the costs of the prosecution. Mr. Travers Humphreys, who defended, acked whether it was possible to allow the sentence on one of the defendants to be postponed so that he might go and pay and dismiss the workmen, as it would in- volve the shutting up of the busneft?. His lordship said he had never heard of such an application. Sir Richard Muir, for the prosecution, said that in siieli an event his lordship would have to bind over one of the defen- dants for judgment on n future date. Mr. Justice Salter said that would be verv unusual, and he could not alter his j decision. Ever? facility would be given for the defendants to deal with their workmen, and if any difficulty arose a further application might be made.

GOWERTON SCHOOLBOYS. I All eight schools in the Gowerton School- boy league were engaged on Saturday, and good games were witnessed by enthusi- Tstic crowds. Gowerton boy? visited Gorseinon t-o play the return game, and the homesters had I the satisfaction of reversing the previous week's verdict to the extEnt of 1'2 poir.13 Beautiful tries were ecorcd for Gorfeiiirm by Leslie Mathlas. Cliff Jones. C. White, aiid Glyn Morgans. They owed their victory to superior combination among the backs. The Gowerton backs lacked cohesion, but the full-back, Percy Edwards, and the for- wards did well. I The County School side played Penclawdd I boys at Gowerton, and a rather one-sided eame resulted in a victory for the former by 15 points to 3. This was Penclawdd's first game. and. with further practice, they should do wl",I. Longhor boys entertained Kirgsbridge, and a, hard fought same ended in a win for the Llwehwr lads by two tries to one. Both aides played promisingly. Pontardulais boys were on their own trround, Grovescnd being the visitors. A bright and pretty game resulted in a, victory for Ponty by the narrow margin of one try.
KILLAY NOTES. I A very promising team has been risen at I Upper Killav and their first step has been to inter the League in the Third Division. Mr D. Morris has hen elected Captain, and the veteran Frank Hopkins, has un- dertaken to coach them. Their match last Saturday was with Cockett, resulting in a pointless draw. The game was very koon from beginning to end.. It will lie well for the meiiity--Tr of the Killay team to remember that they cannot all score in one match. Tho mostprominpnt players were T. Gill D. Morris. and L. David.
fLENNARD CUP. Municipal Secondary's Big Score. Trial Games. (BY "DOMINIE.") I Although the Lennard Cup (first round) held the boards at the Victoria Park on Saturday morning, chief interest was evinced in the trial match, which was the test for aspirants to inter-town honours. Only two Cup games were played. Municipal Secondary severely trounced Baptist Well, but YVaunwen and Hafod played a dogged goalless draw. The re- maining Cup games were played on the district ground at Manseltou. The trial turned out much as expected, and the selectors experienced little diffi- culty in chossing their eleven. Griffiths, the Cwm goalie, did very well, and Shat- tock must look to his laurels. Burgess is a well built lad, and possesses a fine turn of speed, but at present lacks experience. Hughes was the cleverest half on the field, but Craig was below form and was chosen on past performances. There were no surprises among the forwards, but Piper and Kelly often came into prominence. The most difficult point in selection was between Haines (Industrial) and Davies (Municipal Secondary), but the latter was favoured, as he would better understand his clubmate, D. Bell, who was the chosen inside left. Following are descriptions of the I games •— MUNICIPAL SECONDARY v. I BAPTIST WELL. Municipal Secondary.-S. L. Lloyd; G. James and T. Lewis; G. Chislett, Fred Thomas and T. Coker; A. Rogers, E. Gard, B. Watkins, D. Bell and W. Davies. Baptist Well.—A. Williams; D. Watt. and C. Lloyd; T. Miles, C. Lyle and J. Morris; E. Thomas, B. Spooner, C. Lloyd, Edgington and 1. Hughes. Referee: Mr. F. Richards. Baptist Well made their first appear. ance of the season on the Victoria Park, and opened with a strong ruSh. Mun. Seo., however, soon settled down, and a centre from Willie Davies was accepted by Watkins, who found the net with a swift drive. A moment later Fred Thomas increased the lead with a long shot. Baptist Well now attacked and put in some real passing, but their shooting was faulty. Bell here contri- buted a splendid run and centred per. fectly to Watkins, who had no difficulty in scoring the third goal. With this large adverse ecore Baptist Well strove their hardest, but they were faced by a cleverer and more experienced side. Half- time: Municipal Secondary, 3 goals; Bap- tist Well, nil. In the second half the district team changed their tactics, and grouped them. selves in the goalmouth. This idea proved beneficial in the opening stages, hut Mun. Sec. were always dangerous. Davies and Watkins being particularly keen. however, brol-% away fairly frequently, and there was now more of the open mid-field play. Even- tually the School again combined and Bell sent in a stinger" for the fourth goal. Later, a penalty to Mun. Sec. skvr Tom Lewis ecore the fifth. Watkini drove in the sixth, and Bell the seventh. Final Score: I Municipal Secondary—7 goal* I Baptist Wen-Nil. HAFOD v. WAUNWEN. I Hafod.—Norman; H. Thomas and D. Griffiths; Carlson, Wilf Thomas and Pride; W. Stephens, J. Richards, Bap. tiste, E. Richards, and Landick. Waunwen.—Stroud; Beynon and Gibbs; L. Williams, W. Harris and Adams; Nor- man, A. Evans, C. Bennett, S. Rees and 1. Davies. Referee: Mr. G. Owen. Waunwen opwd well, and Norman foolishly left rro charge, but luckily trapped the ball when a long shot would easily have beaten him. Wilfred Thomas and Landick. played well, and Hafod set up a hot bombardment, their shots going anywhere but into the goal. Stevens played strongly on the right, and sent iI, some splendid centres, which were not accepted. A free kick against the goal. keeper proved of little worth, but Hafod kept pegging away, and certainly deserved to score. Just to relieve the monotony Norman covered the length of the field for Waunwen, but finished with a weak shot. Hafod returned to the attack, and play ruled near the Waunwen goal, but the score simply would not come. Half- time-. Hafod. nil; Waunwen, nil. In the first minute of the second moiety Hafofl nearly did the trick," and again Waunwen were fully extended in defence. Waunwen broke away on the right, and nearly brought off a surprise score through Evans, who drove inches wide. Ain't her free iciek to Hafod in the goal- mon,"h proved fruitless, and Waunwen, now evidently conscious that luck was ^■ith them, ran strongly up the field until Wilfred Thomas again set Hafod in at- tacking position. Both teams now strove hard for the mastery, but the shooting was verv poor. The splendid goal-keeping of Stroud saved Waunwen, who were luckv to avoid defeat. Insfpnd of playing extra time the cap- tains decided to replay the game before the Inter-Division match at the Vetch Feld on November 3rd. Final Score: I Hafod-Ni1. Waunwen—Nil. A" TEAM v. B" TEAM. I A" Team.—Shattock (National); Price (National) and E. Thomas (Dany- l graig): F. Green (Sketty), Alf. Hughes (Slcctty), and F. Craig (capt.),' Sketty); E, Griffiths (Sketty), Elsey (Rutland- street), Furnival (Sketty), Piper (Dany- graig), and Phillips (Cwm). B" Team.—Griffiths (Cwm); Lane (St. Joseph's) and Burgess (Rutland); Elton Williams (Terrace-road). Holley (St. Joseph's) and Charles (Skettv); Johnson (National), Hughes (Dyfattv), Simons (Terrace-road), Sullivan (St. Joseph's), and Kelly (St. Joseph's). Referee: Mr. A. Griffiths (Danygraig). A were first to attack, but Griffiths failed to beat Burgess, and later Piper failed to trap a neat, pass from Furinval. Kelly failed to make any impression on Green, but Sullivan ran strongly, and B pressed with vigour. Griffiths, I however, changed the venue with a neat run, and sent to Furnival. Griffiths partially cleared, but Furnival followed up and scored a neat goal. Later Hughes beat a few men in masterly fashion, and sent neatly to Furnval, who shot just over. Hughes and Sullivan were now prominent for B," but Thomas and Price were safe, and Shattock was not tested. Green tricked several opponents and sent to'Griffiths, who ran well but failed to centre. B ran to th" other end, and Sullivan scored the equaliser. Hughes was the best half on the field, and bis feeding gave the forwards numer- ous chances. Edward Hughes. Sullivan, and Kelly combined, but Thomas drove them back, and offside tactics in the goal- mouth lost a aoal for A. Half-time Score: I A Teani-I goal. H n" Tam-l goal. A" restarted with a strong burst, and Griffiths saved several sbots. but none of them wotf very difficult. Kelly ran trickily, but his centre went unac- cepted. The trame a.t this neriod was fast and open, both sides contriubting some pretty mid-field incidents. Price kicked well, but Elsey was the weak link in the weAll. line, having little idea of combined play. B took up the attack, Hughes and Kelly playing prominently, when Griffiths again ran well, and a melee in B goal-mouth was cleared. Kelly and Sullivan improved, and Cray was well beaten when Ed. Hughes shot over. Piper and Griffiths broke away, but their movement did not materialise, and the game ended in a draw. The A side showed greater cohesion, and tLe best lads on this side were Price, Thmcas, A. Hughes, and Furnival. For B Griffiths, Williams, and Kelly were pro- minent. I Final Score: I I- A" Tea rn-I gQUl. B Teazn-I goal After the trial match on Saturday morning, the Selection Committee of the S.S.A.L. (Town Division) chose the follow- ing side to meet the District lads at the Vetch Field on Monday, -November 3rd:— Town Dirision.-Shattack (National); Price (National) and E. Thomas (Dany- graig); Craig (capt., Dyfattv), Alf. Hngheg (Sketty). and T. Coker (Municipal Secon- dary): W. Lewis (Industrial), E. Gard (Municipal Secondary), Furnival (Sketty). D.

Williams (Terrace Road), back; Buckley (Iindustrial), half-back; Haines (Indus- trial) and Walker (Municipal Secondary), forwards. I SCHOOLBOY RUGBY. I The uwual gralmes were played in splen- I I did weather on the Recreation Ground. I St. Thomas v. Munipal Secondary I This game was strenuously contested throughout, and St. Thomas, n'ayn; againet the wind in the first half, pressed hotly, and Lewis Bees scored, but wao rnt -1 in touch. Twice, thnmieh Bevan, be Muni cipa.1 Secondary were dangerous, bu., T'.m Howard saved in fine fashion. Fajf thue arrived with no soore. On resuminit, MunicipaJ Secondary jiTessed from the first scrum, but St. Thomas, ty (food kicking, early became danffarotM. First Archer, aotd then Kift, nea-rll- cromed, but Gann and Bevan repelled the attack. From a. roruin oloøe in Harold Thavies crossed amid great excitement, but the kick for goal failed. The kick out brought the Secondary fto relief. The final soon came, leaving St. Thomas Tiot-ore by one try to nothing. For the Municipal Secondary, Bevan, Cann, end Glynn Thomas were the pick. St. Thomas was well served by Howard, Bees, Burrows, a-nd Griffiths. I Final Score: I St. Thomas, 1 try, I Municipal Seoondary, nil. I I National v. Brynmlll. I This was a very keen and even game. In the first few minutes, Brynmill got on to the National line, and from the ensuing scrum, G. Williams, of Brynmill, picked up in the Iooee, and although tackled by Wal- ters, the National back managed to ground the ball over the line. The remainder of the first half was moetly a forward game. National, with the wind in their favour, pressed early in the second half, and Poles, the National forward, broke away on U* own in fine style, a.nd almost got throu^ii, being eventually well tackled by the Bryn- mill back. The game finished with National pressing, G. Williams and Morgan played Tery promisingly for B ryu mill. and E. Jon06 made good uae of a few opportunities that came hie way. Poles was the shining light, among the National forwards, and Walters, Quick, a,nd Kearoo. Beed and Beer were always in the limelight. I Final Score: I Brynmill, 1 try, I National, nil. I I Danygraig v. Dyfatty. I Dyfatty kicked off against the wind, and preused hotly for ten minutes, and were de- cidedly unlucky not fco ooore, Short almost doing the trick. Danygraig, by forward rushes, penned Dyfatty near their goal-line, and, with » little^ steadiness, would have scored. In the seoèmd hqif, Dyfatty, first through Shortt, and then through Lewis, nearly scored, but kicked too hard when near the line. The game was fast and ex- citing throughout, but no swore caine. Dyfatty, nil, I Final Score: I I Danygraig, nil. I Dyfatty, nil. I TRIAL" TEAMS.

I HOLY TRINITY A.F.C. I Holy Trinity played Mount Calavry at Victoria Park on Saturday, and after a good game defeated their opponents 6-2. In the first half Trinity scored through Jones and Beer, whilst Mount Calvary centre forward notched their point. After the change of ends Trinity put more vigour into their play, and scored through Beer, Wilkinson (2) and Quick. Trinity were well served by Beer, Bell, Coker and the backs. Jones, a new player, was rather disap- pointing, although he scored a goal m the first half. He needs plenty of good hard m actico.

YSTALYFERA PARS. I YSTALYFERA PARS. ￼ I Rugby Booming in I Swansea Valley. Last Saturday the visitors to Ystaly- fera were Gowerton. The latter team had not been beaten so far this seawn, and are known to be one of the smartest sides in the Swansea district. It was an ideal day for football and a large crowd lined the ropes. it the last moment a number of the home team cried off, and these included Leopold, Dan Morgan, Till Edward-s, and I' ti l E-dwards, and Llew Flook. The latter stood down owing to a family bereavement. As some of the reserves did not put in an appearance two forwards of long ago Jack Evans and Llew. Williams, filled vacancies. Hence Edwin Langdon and 01y Morgan had to leave the pack and play among the backs. During the early stages of the game. I Gowerton attacked hotly and nearly scored. Dai Thomas, the outside half, was slightly inj ured and went to his old posi- tion of full-back. Matters then improved for Ystalyfera. It was a very fa6t game, fought out mainly by the opposing packs of for- wards. The Gowerton eight were a speedy lot. Ystalyfera however held the advantage in front. The outstanding player so far was Will Taylor, whose kicking was very judicious and exceptionally lengthy. Much of the forwards energy was thereby saved. Very little back play was exhibited by the teams. The game was far too individualistic. From one of the strong rushes of the home forwards Llew. Williams nicked up and scored in the corner. Dai Thoma. failed to convert the try. At the interval Ystulyfera led by a try I to nil. The game continued to be monopolised more or less by the forwards, the Ystaly- fera pack continually showing to advan- tage. Will Taylor always gained slices of ground by bis kicks. The spectators would wish if the backs indulged in more bouts of passing. Th?rc was no excuse for the best rugby not being played, as both the ground and the ball were perfectly dry. For an infringement in the scrum, a free-kick was awarded against Gowerton, and Taylor who took the kick dropped a magnificent goal from the touch line. Soon afterwards Taylor who was play- ing centre broke through the Gowerton backs and scored in the centre of the posts. The same player however failed to oon- vert his own try though the angle wa< the easiest possible. Before the end Gowerton scored a try thus leaving the final score stand at one penalty goal 2 tries to one try in favour of Ystalyfera. Taylor was easily the most conspicuous player on the field, his strong runs and judicious kicking being features of the game. George Langdon, Tack lawis and Dai Thomas played very well. It is to be regretted that the Ystaly- fera backs could only bring off four or five creditable passing bouts throughout the game,. Tho Gowerton backs were decidedly smart and dangerous. A good inside half like Leopold and a fast pair of wings would do tLe world of j good to Ystalyfera football.
I BRIGHT OUTLOOK. Aberavon Football I Making Headway. Jim Jones' Intentions. f BY "THE BARD." The great following which the Aberavon team took with tLem to Neath on Satur- day was a welcom6 indication to local sportsmen that enthusiasm for fooltball is beginning to return-and not a day too soon. The health of the town foot- ball club at the beginning of the season was so precarious that one was very diffi- dent in venturing any prophecy of the prospecte. There was lack of enthusiasm among both players and committee, and the outlook was indeed dismal. J WALES' OLDEST SECRETARY. Flayers are now coming back to their own, and committeemen are beginning to realus that football clubs cannot very well be run from armchairs. Mr. Hum- phrey Leyshon, the oldets Rugby club secretary in Wales, by the way, is again taking the reLm of office. His long ex- perience will be a help to the committee, and it is well that he should be relieved of much of the detail work. The commit- tee did well to select Mr. W. E. Rets as his lieutenant, for Mr. Rees is an old Aberavon player himself, and one who commands the respect of the men in the team. Moreover, he has tact and dis- cretion. DESPITE BUSINESS CALLS. One has often wondered how Mr. D. W. Jones, with heavy business calls, ie able to devote so much tÓue and energy to the promotion of healthy sport throughout the years; the club hare found him an invaluable treasurer, and one who&e services they cannot easily dispense with, Mr. Jones has readily accepted the offer of Mr. Ted Parry to assist him with some of the duties of his office. Wiech this revival of interest, and the sharing of responsibility, the sup- porters look forward to a bright and healthy season. A SORE POINT. J Aberavon naturally do not begrudge their friends in Neath their exultation over the one point victory of the All Blacks—and really the allocation of four points for a drop goal and three for a try, is still a sore point in RugbV circles. All that need be Eaid jus-t at present is that the Aberavon team is as yet in the experimental fctage this season, but there is a steady growth of feeling that with discrimination on the part of the com- mittee, and with due regard to the highest interest of the club rather than of a sec- tion, the Red and Clacks will be able bo- 'ore CLuVtmas to field a side which will he soeoud to none in Wales. And this iil. no idle boast. There are still tlsree or four positions vacant, but there are also men to fill those positions available in the district if g;iven a chance. AFTERTHOUGHTS.. I was not privileged to accompany Aber- avon to Neath en Saturday, hut I have had impression? of tho match fuun several of the club's supporters. And the >i.st of these I now fin. It seems that the fit twertv minutes cf (he g-anie. tboueh play "vn& nirnnlv drvoted to thp forwards. "up singular tor one thin?. Un till then riot a single scrum had taken place, short line work and tonch-l\i<"•]-,in™ h0in:: the feature. Both teams, fired by the old spirit of hevuthy rivalry, played st'-e;iuo:islv. but there seemed to be a general ab.sence of opportunities. From a spectacular ooint of view the game was hardlv a success— the only incident was the fine round of passing bv the Aberavon third line, cul- minating in Ring crossing in great stylp. The kick, taken by Goslin. failed in a comparatively easy anle, The Neath for- wards were superior to the A beravon eight in the scrum, and adopted a short line and short, sharp running tactics. And here it may perhaps be commented that Aberavon really lost the match because t h,v adopted the Neath style of play in- stead of sticking to their own distinctive style. JIM JONES'S RETURN. Of the Aberavon forwards, Jim Jones was undoubtedly the outstanding ifgure, and in passing I hardly need s?y ho-jr plpnsed Aberavon supporter., are that Jones has definitely decided to remain with the Red and Blacks for the season* His presence in the forward line, just the samo as E. B. Rees in the third line, i* in -,t-relf an inspirati-on to tb- t,-am. Of the forwards, Ponsford, Hopkins, anr -f Randall figured prominently. Evans, tir heavy-weight boxer, as yet lacks exper. ience, but should eventually develop into a good forward. For Neath, Hill at three- quarter, and the new inside half, did wellfc and the latter's drop kick, though ft chould have been stopped, was very smart; and upon khe whole Aberavon were very, unlucky to lose. THE FULL BACKS. ? Neither of the full-backs can be garded a success. Joslin, the Aberavow back, did one or two smart things, but he is not quite up to the standard of first- class football as yet. He must learn to take the ball in flight, and not wait fot the dap. He only managed to save itt the nick of time on Saturday, whereas lie should have had ample time to clear. The Aberavon threes were enforced spectators practically owing to the forwards being unable to gaip possession. They did, how- ever, demonstrate their ability in tbd movement that gave the try. Both sets of halves worked hard, but. owing to the for- wards being beaten for possession, the Aber. avon men were mainly on the defence. Hopkins, a. 'Quins' player. and a former Schoolboy International, did well on the whole.. j The question which now arisas is: What will hapcen at LlanellyP Will it fall to the lot of Aberavon to cut abort the vie. torioue career of the Scarlets? True, Llan. elly are a strong side, but it is equally true that Aberavon oan rise to an occasion. There are a few changes in the team from last Sa.turda.y. Lieutenant Hywel Lewis. a former Schoolboy International, now serv- ing with the Welsh Regiment at Pembroke, is to be tried at back with Joslin as re- serve. The third line will be the same, with J. O. Davies in reserve. The halves and forwards are practically unchanged. On the whole. Aberavon have a strong side, and they should do well.
HOCKEY. The Swansea Business College played their first match this season, when they we down to Oystermouth to Aley the Oyster. mouth Hockey Team. Good play was obeerred on both gideg, but the Oystermouth team were the heavier. Although the weight was on the Oyster- mouth side, the young people of Swanee& played a good game. The Swansea Business Oollege are a young lot, and should beat every team their own size they meet—that is, if they play as good as they did last Saturday. flub.
