The Children's Column. My DEAR NIECES AND NEPHEWS, I suppose you are looking forward these days to the breaking up of school and to hot cross buns, and to all sorts of games and sports. So did I at this time of the year when I was young like you, and holidays have still a great charm for me. But I think I know who among you will enjoy the Easter holidays most—those who have been most attentive to their studies since Christmas. If all our days were holidays we should soon tire of them. What are you going to do with yourselves when there is no school ? I wish the weather were warmer and the sun brighter for you, then you would find real pleasure in the parks and gardens. But let us hope this cold spell will soon pass off, before it destroys the blossoms and the flowers. If you can spare as much time I should like you all to write me nice letters- I know they will be nice-saying how you spent the days from Good Friday over Easter Monday. You can write either in Welsh or English, though I should prefer them in Welsh and after you have done that, turn to these questions and puzzles and answer them. 1. iranslate the tollowmg sentences into English :— Tro yn ol; tro dy de mae tro yr afon mi af am dro heddyw; mae John wedi myned i roi tro ar y defaicl; syrthiodd Wil i'r llyn tro. 2. Hidden Welsh names of flowers :— Y llwybr i allu yw ymroddiad. Yn well y gad yd y ddol. Bywyd ac oes go chwerw gafodd hi. Os ewyllysi aur Gogerddan paroto i frwydr. 3. Jumbled Welsh proverbs :— Nallagowlo, nallafowldde. Reuogfra, farsgyd. Peudrath athiwg wy ddeireuche. Here are the correct answers to the last set of questions :— i. loan; Iago; Iorwerth; Buddug; Myrddin; Gwalchmai. 2. Drwg. Rhew. Wele. Gwen. 3. Hwy wy. Ebyr; byr. Coes; oes. Llus; us. Remember to send your letters and answers by Thursday, addressed as usual to Wncwl Huw," care of the LOVDON WELSHMAN, 45, St. Martins Lane, W.C.
