WAR MEMORIAL FOR CWMAMMAN. To the Editor, Amman Valley Chronicle. S)Ir,-As most places have decided to erect Memorials for the Fallen Heroes, may I make a suggestion that we in Cwmamman build a Memorial Hall, with a Swimming Bath on the ground floor, similar to that of the Y.M.C.A. at Ammanford, with the ex- ception that we make the HaU large enoigh to hold concerts. It is well known that most of the concerts, &c., are held in places of worship, which I do not consider proper places. Regarding the Baths, they would be a great asset to the place. The children at present are swimming in the local rivers and ponds, which are net really fit for them, as they are so mach polluted. This alone ought to induce us to provide proper facilities. An Honours Board could be fixed up in the Hall with the names of all who joined either the Army or Navy from the district. Also, tablets with the names of those who made the supreme saerifice. I believe a suit- able site could be secured in Prospect Place. If we put our shoulders to the wheel, the whole cost could soon be defrayed, as, in the case of the local Soldiers' and Sailors' Fund, over £ 1,000 was collected in a short time. I cannot think of a better means of commemorating the noble sacrifice made by our brave soldiers and sallors.-I am, &c., W. A. HAY, Hon. Sec. Soldiers' and Sailors' Fund. P.S .âI hope that others will take suffi- cient interest in the matter to urge it forward.

ACKNOWLEDGMENT. I
