GETTING BACK TO THE NORMAL. I Those who were in the main streets of Swansea during the early afternoon hours of Thursday must ¡ have been impressed by the dighfc of the crowds hastening to the Southern Tip-agiie match between Swansea and Merthvr. How mor-t of the people managed to square their working hours with the de- mands of the contest, we cannot say; but- all sorts and conditions appeared to have knocked off" for the afternoon. From Merthvr an imposing retinue of what the Americans would call fans poured into Swansea—hundreds coming expensively by road. Oxford- street a liltle before three o' clock was like King EdVvard's-roa-d before a big match in the pre-war day. And, mark, it was a Thursday afternoon! How are we to interpret it? In the first place, it appears to us that it points with certainty to one fact! However hardly the people 6i the country have been hit by the, in- I creasing cost of living, there is a considerable proportion of the population which must be doing: better than ever from a material point of view. The Merthvr influx I cftuy. scarcely have cost lets than sovereign a head, without allowing the los« in wages; a football autho- rity who knows, better than we can pretend to, the ways of these visit- ing spectators seys that he should estimate the expenditure of very many at two pounds a. head! I We are not decrying the expen- diture. Every man must have his pleasure, and while some take it by having a day at Jersey Marine or Pennard, and others by a day of tramping into Gower, the majority ¡ seek their relaxation at the foot- ball match. One can obtain for- getfulness of the world's worries concentrating upon the worrying little golf ball; another by watch- ing a bigger ball bounding between goal and goal. It is a good sign that we are getting back to normal ways, and throwing off our old troubles. But play is built upon the foun- dation of work. Work is the sauce which gives zest to our plea- sures." We trust that football fans and all other fans are not forgetful • of the basis! I
JUVENILE BACK-TO- I WORKS. About five weeks ago—to be more I precise, on October 10-just over six thousand boys and girls were receivrcg the Government's out-of- work donation. This may seem to some people a large number, but in a population of forty million* it ;s but a trilling percentage. More- over, the position has improved, for the recipients of this particular donation nimibeted twelve thou- sand at the. end of June. So far, so good. Clearly we are getting back to pre-war conditions, in so far as juvenile labour is concerned, be- cause there alway s was, at the- best of times, a small army of youngsters out of jobs for one reason or au- other. It was often the case, for in- stance, that a certain amount of unemployment occurred for days or weeks between the da.te of leaving sc hool and the date of getting fixed up in suitable situations. Further evidence of the fact that we are gradually getting back to "as in 1913" is afforded by the disappearance of the Juvenile Un- employment Centres. Only seven- teen centres now remain, and only between five hundred and six hun- dred boys and girls are in attend- ance there. The Board of Educa- tion founded these organisations, and the system has been worked all along with results beneficial to the nation. In considering this kind of unemployment, regard should be had to the fac-t that the less of a situation is not necessarily evidence of incapacity or indeed of any fault at all. because, as demobi- lised men arrive at their homes from service in various parts of the world, some of the younger workers are turned out to make room. They havo served their country industri- ally, but the claims of those who have served CD thexfar fronts must come first.
MANNESMAN^ STRIKE. ——— .0 — —— 1 A Statement of the Men's Case by the A.S.E. The following statement has been sent to \w by the Amalgamated Society of Engineers With reference to a recent paragraph respecting thé strike of mechanics at Mannesmann Tube Works, the men's case is that their wage-, settlements HAVO for many years been based on the agree- ments of the Tinpiate Conciliation Board and which is now the Joint industrial Council. This is inevita bIe seeing that the Siemens Steel Association s lo ob- serve tbfcse agreements to men ot a similar class in their employ, with the result that as these employ the largest group of such men, thelia settlement. dominate the district rate. Respecting the interim tinpiate ig. ce- ment as from June 30th to Septoi'io^r 27th, 1919, the affinity between th* rates paid at tinplate and stl works and Mannesmann Works respectively cea«»d to be merely general, and despite the apt that Mannesmann agreements usually extend from July 1st to Decem- ber 31st, the July settlement at Mannes- mann was the entire adoption of the in- terim tinpiate agreement to SeptemlMM- 27th. It is known that when entlmen representing the employers on ihe Tin- plate Council that met in Juno last pla:e dbefore the workmen's representa- tives the extremely grave position of the industries, they stated their reasonable convictions and were net condescending to the methods of hucksters in order to disparage -the claims of the men, there* fore the terms of the settlement implied the probability of a reduction following September 27th, but the ohanged circum- stances warranted an advance of 1.21 per cent. The mechanics are on strike lot the Mannesmann Works became if :t reduc- tion was effected iu September, they would have been equally affected, and the firm would have claimed the benefit of the reduction therefore, they reason- able and logically claim that as at thp end of the interim agreement an advanco was agreed to, they are eOllaHv entitled to its benefit-
TOWN TALK. Swansea has a habit of letting it warmth evaporate."—Mr. J. Turner, taw Shop Assistants' general secretary. — • Merthyr'* followijrj early promised to make Thursday's match at Swansea Ilia liveliest of the season. They were luodola of quietness in the second half. "This winter's furs," says a fashion. paper, are inclined to he full." Yet the general opin)on to lie that they are, to say the Ioast of tt, rather skinny. There wafc plenty of Scotch, but not of the liquid variety at the credit drapers' dinner at the Royal Hotel, on Thursday evening. The Labour Training Centre for domes, tic Workers at Swansea is doing splendid work. The applicants for training aro so numerous that a second instruclr^sj has been engaged. Army breeches and British worms are having a wonderful resurrection these days. It is imagined that the climate, and jtot any revival -f martial feeling, ii; responsible for this. -:0: A local angler wants know how long Can an eel remain "dry." Of course, it's a delicate question, but an authority on the Subject says it can remain dry much longer than some of its would- be captors. 0: fToW" the soap. si1'" asked the new1 hoy in a local hairdresser's of a rather choleric old gentleman, whom he was lathering. Never tasted anything like it in my life," snapped the old 'un in a tone that startled the youngster. ::0 The new Mayor (Aid. Alex Sinclair) is abroad early in the mornings, and gets through a grea £ amount of work by the hour some of his predecessors were ac- customed to put in an appearance at the Guildhall. -:01- The agitation is being ranewed for t'he establishment of a police court in Gower- ton. The proposal has certainly every- thing in its favour, as the "linnerod of Swansea is to-day one of the most im- portant industrial centres in the whole of the country. :10 The announcement that there is an t,mp!A supply of meat ir the country— almost an embarrassing glut," in fact- is good news. But there are hundreds of anxious housewives In SwtmMa who would call the name of the Controller blessed if by any means he could reduce the price of the stuff -;0:- Swansea, it did not quite clear the town of the invaders yesterday. Tha main body, of course, left the place by rail and motor late in the evening, but a good number of their comrades, ap- parently more determined than the tmt, were marching through some of the main streets this morning. -:0:- The idea of grantinfr certificates to domestic workers who have qualified at the Labour Training Centre is said to find favour among the domeatice, as it will practically amount to a premium on their services. A skilled worker, ian. doubtedly, should command more money thttn the unskilled. -8C- Answer to "Hill Climber": No. there is no intention at present to erect a hand. rail up Rhyddings Park-road. Of course with frozen pavemwits, the hill may be a bit difficult to negotiate, but under normal conditions, with < little grit and a dash of British pluck, the task should be eajy'enough. k —: o. — Mr. rodden. the Shop Assistants* Cnion's recently-appointed permanent secretary at Swansea, is an ardent advo- cate of work for its own sake. But." he told his audience on Thursday flight, "fw people work 1I. heau8e thy"(It got work thi don't like." He looks to a better organised world to remedy this. ;11 =- A peculiar sight was witnessed close hy the Fatti Pavilion in Victoria Park this morning. On a mound of earth a man could be seen whirling round a hllcket oi nr:>. Several people wondered whether the man was signalling, but it was only a case of gating the lire to light quickly tor the purpose of boiling the water for making tea for breakfast. —: O Mr. John Turner, the general secretary of the Shop Assistants' Union, told his Swansea audience on Thursday night that, when he came to the town he always found warmth. By that the hastened to add) lie did not tuean climatic warmth. He had observed how, that evening, his audifnee had sorted themselves out near the .stoves! -:0:- A demobbed soldier, reading in the Lcadrr last night that employers were meet ins the demobbed-from the Women's Army in regard to the providing of civilian clothes, wished that some such scheme was in force when he was de- mobilised, as the ptli-P for <.lot.Vies by the tailors took the gilt off the fir?t few weeks, pay.

Tie was without a doubt on excellent terms with the youngsters." The Indian professor who leetured for the Swansea theosopbists at the Work- men's Club. told an Indian story.

THE CENOTAPH AND THE LIVING. I We have received the following letter from A Disabled Soldier The Swansea Town Counril hee- sanc- tioned the erection of a cenotsph on the Promenade. at the cost of roughly £ 3,000, ■ in memory of the glorious dead who feU ¡ in the oniise of Liberty and Freedom. I Is this thp most effective way of giving due reverence and homage to our gloriot-s heroes? There are scores, aye hundreds, who have no need to be reminded of the lOt-d ones they have ltet, the very fact of the absence of their dear faces from (he famiir circle being an everlasting- memorial of fhft ofccrific^ they have paid. Would it not be a truer, more perma- nent and )a-stin- memorial to our lost comrades if this nioney was devoted to assist in ômtb way these who were de- pendent on these brave m- £ », and trho ar £ now, many of them at least, in dire want? Where are the members, of the Coun- cil that they allow unquestioned this ruthless 1VMtfj of money on A mere spec- tacular rhing of 6tonev This is the sort (yf letter to which we can give two answers. Is th:, the most effective way of giv- ing due reverence and homage to our glorious deAd?" Y es- and no. It all depends upon whAt we are doing on behalf of the living. If bite ,CenotAph is all, then we are entirely with our correspon- dent. But as a matter cf fact it is not all. The Memorial Fund h;:s a .considerable sum in reservation for utilitarian objects. The Widows' and Orphans' Fund, which is feterniy practical in its aims, is growing day by da-Ptlthoiigli it hn-s a long way to go to reach the tEn thousand mark. 117e cannot think that there can be any substantial objection to the Cenotaph. We want in our midst —we wish it had been possible .0 have a site in the heart of the town —a permanent reminder of the Great Sacrifice. We want, ever with us, a warning of the cost :f war. Supposing all the Memorial Fund wer. to be devoted to im. mediate purposes of relief? In ten years it would hate been expended; and we would be left with n') memorial to brave. men who died for us. It is a natural instinct of the heart to raise monuments to our dead. Not one of the dead who are buried in France and in distant parts, had he died at home would have received sepulchre without some memorial being erected over the grave. Surely we are not less mindful as a town. when in CUt de- fence, they fell far from their home I But a memorial to the dead which does not include thought of the living they left in our charge would be worse than mockery. That is why we are, daily, reminding the people of Swansea of their solemn obligations, and beseeching them n -Qeee b irg t b t,,m :? ) send in their donations to the Widows' and Orphans' Fund. We hear nothing but praise of the pro- ject. It has caught the imagina- tion of Swansea. When the Cenotaph is built, we shall look upon it with comfortable thoughts because we have not been unmind- ful of the fRnliliA, of the men it commemorates.
