Welsh National Pageant Points. By OWEN RHOSCOMTL. "Lady Bute on Monday morning. Football Kings on Monday night. Now we're all right" âso cried one enthusiastic committeeman to another on Tuesday morning, clapping him on tlie back, and-no, not asking him to take a small spot o' wine with him. Our committee- men seem too far above all such human weak- nesses as that. Or is it that the spirit of the Pageant has lifted their souls to such heights that the clouds hide all such mundane things as "small spots o' wine?" And perhaps it's as well, or else their vine bills might mako the Ch..no. llor of the Ex. too hilarious. For every day some now encour- agements. The footballers rally round W. T. Morgan. And straightway then the schoolmas- ters and mistresses and teachers come crowd- ing up to 1. Vaughan Evans, and tell him it's about time he secured 'em their share of it. Moreover, as the footballers have secured Episode 4, Ivor Bach, so the schoolfolk have secured Interlude 4. Tha.t interlude includes Llywelyn the Great and Llywelyn the Haunted, as well as the proclamation of Owen Glvndwr. More yet, it includes the immortal bard, Davydd ap Gwilym, who will be accompanied 12Y the bevy of wondrous fair ones he made for- ever famous. Think of that one of the midnight eyes, of the one of the dawn-like face, of GWGn of the dream-slender form, of .the star-hued nun, atid-yes, try to imagine bright Morrydd, of the hair so glorious that Davyda must write ode after ode to it, and still not satisfy himself that he had fully struck its beauty into the visions of the world. And-wait a breath or twoâthe other cap- tains of Episodes and Interludes are sorting out. their volunteers. You shall hear of them as they come in with their totals. Only two Interludes have not yet been ap- propriated. Interlude 2, with its Saints and Pagans, its Priests and Princes, Princesses and Saint-esses, Kings and Bishopsâthat's still open to some energetic man with a following. And Interlude 3-look at the book and see the glittering company gathered in its five scenesâ that's still open for a good captain. Still, more, although tho Chairman of the Performers' Committee ha.s been laid up with the illness we all so much regret, yet we've secured the services of Mr. WiUrnott as vice- chairman, which means that we shall still keep full eteam ahead. So we prospor-and thank the gods for it. -->
