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).
