BARRY FUND FOR RESERVISTS' FAMILIES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE" RARRY HERALD." SIR,-In all parts of this country funds are being started for the families of Reservists who have re-joined their regiments, and I think the town of Barry should do its share in this matter. The great wave of Imperial patriotism which is flowing through the length and breadth of the land is, I am sure, to be found in Barry, and as Chairman of the Barry Urban District Council, I shall be very pleased to receive any subscriptions which the inhabitants of this district may wish to give. I propose to ask the District Council to appoint a committee to assist me in distributing the amounts re- ceived to the families of Reservists living in the district who will be in need of help. It is, I am sure, well known to your readers that the pay of a Reservist allocated to his wife and children is not sufficient to maintain them. It would be a great disgrace to Barry if the wives and children of men who, at their country's call, have left their homes to face death, should be compelled to have resource to Poor Law relief, the least we can do is to see that the men who are fighting our battles shall have no anxiety about the support of their wives and children. I propose to ask the local banks to receive subscriptions, or the amounts may be sent to myself. The local papers have kindly consented to acknowledge all subscriptions in their columns free of charge. Yours truly, J. H. JOSE, Chairman of Barry U. D. Council.
