Llwynypia. On Saturday, the Llwynypia Lod?e of the United Patriots Benefit Society held then an- nual feast at the Workmen's Institute. Before partaking of the splendid spread provided bj Host and Hostess Rolley, they formed ono gi- <rn.nt.ie nrecession, headed by the Trealaw Mis- sion Band. They then marched througn me town and district, returning about 4 o'clock, and sat down to dinner. The Rev Daniel Davies, Baptist minister, Tonypandy, presumed, and everything passed off in tip-top style. After the festive board was cleared an interesting pro- gramme was gone through, providing a good evening's enjoyment to the large assemblage. It would be hardly fair to pass over the pro- cession without commenting on the banners, which were decorated with taste and artistic ability by Mr Tom Kington. Mr Kington, al- though only a toiler underground, had arranged the thousand and one flowers in a manner which indicated great artistic dexterity in that direction. The programme was a varied and interesting one. Letters of apology were read from Aid. Richard Lewis, Councillor Thomas, who, owing to pressure of business, were unable to be present. Songs and recitations were given by Messrs David Thomas, T. James, E. Price, T. Rees, J. Murray, P. Kembury, R. Williams, and T. Watkins. Mr J. Williams presided in his usual able manner at the piano. The whole day's programme reflects great credit on the energetic secretary (Mr James Bryce), who has worked hard and with good effect to make his lodge's feast the most successful of the year. It was a matter of much regret that Mr W. W. Hood, M.E., the genial chairman of tha Lodge, was unable to attend, as was also the case with the general secretary of the society, Mr George Wheeler. The following pupils of Mr David Lloyd, M.I.S.M., were successful at the recent London College of Music examination: Elementary Grade: Miss Janes Davies, Llwynypia, 80 marks; James Conway Price, Ton, Pentre, 77; Willie Bertram Lawrence, Tonypandy, 80. Intermediate Grade: Willie T. Parry, Ton, Pentre, 74; Ada Thomas, Ton, 80; Thomas J. Price, Ton, 80. Senior Grade: Ida Jones, Dyfodwg House, Ton, Pentre, 88 marks (honours). Anniversary services were held at the Primi- tive Methodist Chapel on Sunday. Mr W. Boget Abercynon, preached three sermons during the day. On Monday the annual tea was held, The following ladies presided over the tables: Mrs Rowley, Mrs Perrios,, Mr Odams, Mrs Watts, Mrs Amos, Mrs Holmes, and Mrs John. In the evening a service of song, "Bramble Bush," was rendered very effectively by the choir. Mrs Pickles, the wife of the resident minister, acted as reader. -0-
