BIT BADGE "HOME." Lianelly Ex-Service Men to Have an Institute. At a public meeting held at the Llan- elly Market Hail on Sunday afternoon, under the auspices of the local branch of the Demobilised Soldiers' and Sailors' Federation, the chairman (Capt. Jack Evans, M.C.), said they owed a debt of gratitude to the Mayor (Councillor Dan Williams, J.P.), and Councillor Frank J. for raising a fund for the purpose of giving ex-gorvice men a wel- come home. Whilst the Federation ap- preciated the idea of giving the men a sort of glorified tea, they, after careful consideration, thought it would be better it the money was devolved to the provision of a home where ex-service iiwn ooukl play bi.liiards, indulge in gymnastics, or hav., both. The Mayor said the subscription liat at present amounted to £ 1,700. (Applause). Don't clap too much," paid the Mayor, as I tdI you candidly I am disap- pointed with the re«ponse of the general public. I feel ashamed that the general public have not responded more liberally towards this excellent object." Councillor Frank J. Reee, J.P., secre- tary of the fund, said that out of the total of 91,70(1 6tibieribcd, 91,500 had been subscribed by 34 firms. Mr. T. Mabbett moved that the Mayor and subscriber* be asked to hand over the fund to the ex-service men, not the Fed- eration, for the purpose of erecting a club so that the ex-service men and the de- pendents of their glorious comrades, who would never return, would be able to apend their eveninjjs at billiards, gym- nastics, or some other form of recreation. Mr. D. H. Thomas, in seconding, said it would be a great waste if the money was spent upon a banuet, or something of that kind when the ex-service men need-ed a home." The motion having bn carried unani- mouely, the Mayor eaid he would con- vene a meeting of the subscribers soon, and would convey the motion to tlieni "Iltixir,g had been alluded to bv infer- ence," said the Mayor, who added, I may tell yon at once that I am still an unre- pentant sinner, especially with regard fe amateur boxing." (Laughter and ap- plauso).
WEST WALES FARMERSI I Protest Against Grading of I I Sheep. f A conference cf delegates from W p-t Wal es branches of the National Formers' Union was held at Carmarthen pn Sat- urday, 1\(t. T. Bowen, Llandr#, chairman of the'Pembrokeshire branch, presiding. Strong criticism was made of the Ministry of Food's regulation which prohibit the weighing of fat sheep at iho mart before being gradad. This re- gulation has led to farmerr, at eome West Wales marts going on strike by with- holding their stock. The conference decided to ask the sec- retary of the Xational Farmers' Ution to call upon their Live Stock Committee to take the matter up. A deputation was also appointed to wait upon the Food Ministrr, and it was decided to advise farmers not to strike pending instruc- tions. I ALLEGED IRREGULARITIES. I Mr. W. E. L&M drew attention to Cêr-I tain alleged iregula!'iti at marts, and submitted for consideration t?Mlutions i passed by his executive. The first was that owing to the unsatisfactory allo- cation at some of the marts. we ask the IJire Stock Commissioner to appoint a farmer to f'kt,.et on the Allocation Com- mittee." Another resolution complained that dealers' cattle were g-rr.ded at marts when the genuine producers of beef and mutton had to send their ari- mak home through lack of rmits; that dealers were going round buying fat catrle in isolated districts, keeping them a short time, and then getting them graded at a mart, thereby obtaining huge profits." Mr. Lees cited a case of a widow who lived 16 miles from a mart. whoee wattle were preeented at a marft and re- fused. In a day or two later a dealer was on the joIN and he bought the cattle and had them graded in the widow's name. The dealer had bought the cattle for Z223, and sold them for C-nO. The cheque from the mart happened to go to the widow. The mooting decided to .send the resolu- tions to the Live Stock Commissioner. MAXIMUM RETAIL PRICE. I A. resolution was also passed, on the I luetioR of Mr. Anthony, Penlan, calling upon the Food Ministry to do aWtlY with grading altogether, owing to the irregu- larities that existed at certain marts, and introduce a maximum retail price for animals. A re-solution passed by hie branch was moved hy Mr. Lees, that the Ministry of Food be again approached with a view to having the maximum price of butter increased or, as an alternative, to heing allowed a free market in butter. Failing this, the resolution asked that farmers should join in charging a uniform rate of -16. per lb. during the next six months, and that in the event of any farmer being summoned, the National Fanned' Union should defend the case. Mr. L. L. Bowen, Trelech, said the public demanded butter, and Vould will- ingly pay that price for it. The resolution was carried. A resolution of protest wrts also carried against the importation (f Irish cattle which, it was stated, adversely affected the Welsh farmers, who were unable to dispose of their stock, a limited number only being graded at the marts.

AN APPEAL TO SWANSEA. The Swansea committee which has organised the distribution of gifts at Chrif:5tmas-time' to the widows of our fallen sailors and soldiers, arranged, for the annual teas and Christmas presents to the children of our dead heroes, and in the summer—thanks to the generous heart of the towii-was able to send some- seventy children for a long holiday into Gower, is appeal- ing for £ 5,000. This is a large amount, and we do net disguise from ourselves the fact that, if the sum is to be in hand at the end of the year, it-will entail, on the part of the Widows' and Orphans' Com- mittee, considerable exertion, and on the part of the public of Greater Swansea, a measure of go-od-wll larger even than the substantial tokens it has given the fund in the past. We are quite certain that the money will be forthcoming—when the public realise the extent of the need, and when it renews the solemn obligations it entered inio with the men who went out to fight I for Britain, the men who kept our shores inviolate and won for free- dom its great-est triumph. As time goes on, and the memory of the five years of war grows dimmer, we shall be in danger of losing the sense of personal respon- sibility which all of us felt in the days of danger. It remains for us to see that we escape the danger, and that although the years take us further away from the days when our men went over the ceasi to fight, and to die, for a noble cause, we shall never forget what we owe them, and never forget the sacred bond we have entered into, that the families of the fallen shall not have cause to bewail the in- gratitude of man. The children of the slain are the children of thei State. The fathers went out in the first rapture of patriotism, content to go in the knowledge that a new spirit was awake in Britain, and that what they sacrificed for us we were prepared also to sacrifice for them. Thus it is that in Greater Swansea to-day there are at least- seven to eight hundred families to whom we stand obligated, and who are peculiarly in the charge of the people of the town. The committee responsible for the distribution, and for the institu- tion of the Children's Home in Gower, is drawn from all sections of the community. It had as its chairman Major G. W. Harries, O.B.E., who worked for the fund with a devotion that is beyond praise. Unhappily Major Harries's health has proved unequal to the great strain of these duties in alli- ance with his' active business life, and with regret the committee has received his resignation. But it ;s fortunate to have in Mr. Stanley Cook a gentleman of equal devotion, a great worker whose soul is alight with enthusiasm for the greatness of the cause he has now consented to guide. With him there is a working committee drawn from I ladies and gentlemen of all parties i and creeds, and, we are glad to say, a committee which is an example to others in the serious way in vHiich it looks upon its duties. It has held a good many meetings lately, and after making careful enquiries has come to the conclusion that, if the fund is to do all it expects to do this year and next summer, a minimum of £ o,000 will be required. In the first place, it will have to I watc h over the enj oyment of the Christmas season by the families of the fallen by seeing that into their homes there shall go that extra fare which- we all regard as our preroga- tive during this joyous eason. Then it is not to be thought of that the annual teas -of the little ones should be curtailed in any degree! And lastly it is hoped to extend very greatly the operations of the Summer Home scheme. This I summer the committee was only able to make a start; but it was a good start, and a. large number of children, who otherwise would have had no beneficial change although their health sadly required it, was able to pick up happiness and strength in the pleasant sea and country -ir of beautiful Gower. This year's operations however, 'I touched only the fringe of the- problem. Xext summer, we must give a chance to very many more children to taste of the joys of a holiday in the country. Why should they not? If their fathers had been living, in all probability I [they should have shared in trie I < 1 general prosperity that is now upon Swansea; they would, like other children, be able to look forward to their holiday season. We are surely not going to deprive them of that joy; and ,o the fund appeals with absolute assurance to the people of Greater Swansea to see that net seventy but hundreds of the little ones of our fallen heroes, shall be able to dream, this coming spring, of the time when they shall bo roaming the green fields and play- ing upon the golden sands of the pexminsula. To carry out this scheme effec- tively, it wiU be necessary to build a home somewhere in Gower. Plans are now before the sub-committee of the fund which provide for ac commodation for some forty child- ren at a time, and if the £ 5,000 that is required for this and other ob- jects mentioned is subscriber^—and we have no doubt that it will be subscribed before the summer comes there will be erected a com- fortable home which will be one of Swansea's noblest tributes to its dead sons. We hope later to give further details of this scheme, but the, initial requirement is an assur- ance that the money will be forth- coming, and therefore we make this first appeal to the sense of justice and responsibility in our people. It is an appeal to which Swansea has always been sensitive. We have the wonderful knack of always rising to the occasion. We do not fail in meeting our responsibilities. We never fall short in our under- takings. And therefore at the com- mencemeut of this campaign, we ask our readers to turn over in their minds the great question, what they owe to the families of the fallen and what they can do to pay, 'n part, the debt they owe. The hon. treasurer is Mr. David Roberts, J. P.. 61, Wind-street, Swansea. and the hon. secretary is I Mr. J. D. Williams, "Cambria Daily Leader," Swansea. ¡ and on behalf of the committee they will be glad to receive subscriptions l towards the fund, which shall be duly acknowledged in theSejl columns.
WELSH DRAMA. I Remarkably Successful Week. Movement Spreading. I I The crowd at the Albert Hall, Swan- sea, on Saturday evening, to witness the 1 performance of Maesymeiliion (D. J. Davies), by the Siloh, Pontardulftis, Party, was the greatest seen during the Welsh Drama Week. The competition and the whole movement was, therefore, a magnificent succcss, and Swansea is to v be congratulated on proving its unques- tionable right to be regarded as the metropolis of Welsh Wales. QUITE SATISFIED. I Seen by a. Leader representative., ,Jr. W. Clement, the secretary of the Drama Week Committee, said: "Yes, quite satisfied. I knew from the very outset that the venture was going to be a success, but we had to work, and work hard, and I can assure you that the past three weeks have been the busiest time of my life. Within the past fortnight I have not slept more than about four hours a night, and I am proud of th* fact that our efforts have been crowned with success. Above all, I am more than pleased that I am a Welshman, and the past week has afforded us another proof of what Welsh people can do when they rise to the occasion. Neither Swansea nor any other part of Wales has met with a better response i:i connection with any Welsh movement 1??ot only liar, the than that la-st week. Not only has the movement aroused the immediate locali- ties, but the whole of Wales seems to be alive to the matter. LEAD FOR CARDIFF. I On Saturday a gcntlman came to me purposely from Cardiff with the view of doing a similar thing there, and again on Sunday I received another communi- cation from one of the most popular centres in South Wales, asking an ap- pointment on the same matter. Bo, you see. the future of the Welsh drama in Wales is assured." "What about Carding" was asked, and the reply, was: "Don't ycu be afraid of any other centre taking the lead. Swan'sea has been the prime mover in this business, and I am proud to have been connected with the move- mcnt at its inception. We consider that Swansea is to be the o. 10, Downing- street, of the whole affair. We lead; others follow. Yes, our president, Lord Howard de Waiden, wns most impressed by our success, and. like ourselves, anticipates great things for the Welsh drama in the future. It is more than likely that we will commence at once to form the new company.

REV. ELVET LEWIS. Poet-Preacher at Henrietta Street Chapel. The well-known bard, the Rev. Elvet Lewis, M.A., London, occupied the pul- pit at Henrietta Chapel on Saturday evening and throughout Sunday. The large congregations which attended the services were evidence of his popularity as a preacher. At the Sunday evening service the sacred edifice was crowded out, eren the lobby being filled with &n eager crowd anxious to hear the poet- preacher. At the afternoon service h. W. T, Rhys (Ammanford) sang "it h hxior.ch while in the evening ne gave a Weish solo (the words of which had been translated by Eivet), both of wiuch were greatly appreciated. Powerful sermons were delivered at each service by the preacher.
