ANOTHER SPLENDID GIFT. 250 Guineas. From Red Cross for Fund. The hon. secretary of the Widows' and Orphans' Fund (and Children's Summer Home) has very great pleasure in acknowledging to-day the handsome donation to the fund of 250 guineas irom the Swansea Branch of the British Hod Cross Society. At a recent meatin7 ol. tb> sooi-rty, the question of assisting the committee in its work for the widows and orphans of those who have fallen in the war was brought forward, and it was unanimously felt that the object was worthy of .,v,ry support, as it was so closely akin to the work that the society had been carrying on in our midst during the periodof the war. It is impossible to express in jiint the feeling of our committee in regard to this gift," said Mr. Stanley Cook, chair- man of the committee, this morning. co It will be a very great encouragement, and we only hope that this noble example will be followed by many others. We hare felt all along that there is no real necessity to specially plead fny justification for our work, and all chu but agree that there is urgent necessity for what we are doing. Personal contact with the widows and children of the brave men who have laid down their lives for us—and that is what it really means—binds us to their service in stronger links as time goes on, and it is our earnest hope that when we hold our annual Christmas gathering, we shall be able to invite a certain section of the public to come and see the children. We hope within a reasonable time to issue full particulars of the Summer Home to be erected, and it will then give evervbody an idea of what the work means. We fully realise the enormous amount of work that this involves, and the work will not end when the building is erected. We must, therefore, look for a continued interest in this effort year by year, so that we may not lessen our efforts until the children, who are .tow of tender ape, are placed out in life and can fend for themselves." THE NEED. But there is a very long ray to go before the committee of he fund can carry out fully their intentions this winter and next year. It has been estimated that a* sum of at least E5,000 will be required if the usual Christmas grants are to be made to the widows and children, the children's treats provided, and the proposed scheme of a Summer Home brought into effect, A committee of ladies representative of all interests in Swansea is hard at work making arrangements, and one of, the functions that have been fixed up is, a three nights' whist drive at the Hotel Mctropole in December. Other events are also being arranged. All these, how- ever, will but touch the fringe of the wants of the fund. and we appeal con- fidently to the generous heart of Swan- sea to help us forward by means of per- sonal donations. The smallest amount will be welcomed—the shillings as well as the pounds. If £ 5.000 is to be in hand before December closes, the committee will require every scrap of assistance Swansea can render. We are asked to appeal to the public of Greater Swansea to forward donations either to— Mr. David Roberts, J.P., Hon. Treasurer, 6], Wind-street, Swansea; or Mr. J. D. Williams, Hon. See.. Cambria Daily Leader Office, Swansea. All donations will be promptly acknow- ledged. SUBSCHI PI IUNS. I E 6. O. Swansea Branch of the British £ S. d'l Red Cross Society (per Mrs. C. H.
