MORRISTON MEMS. Although deprived of a properly-laid-ont park, Morriston children appear to enjoy themselves to the full at the beautiful na- tural park at the Clasemont Woods. That friendly North Walian who expends his fortune and enjoys his old age by send- ing cheques to hard-working Cainivistic Me- thodist Churches, has just forwarded the folk of Nazareth Church the sum of £100. This makes £600 Nazareth has received from this philanthropist-a gentleman who rigidly en- forces the condition that the donor shall be "Anon." It is stated also that Bethania Chapel has received £150 from this source. After complete renovation Tabernacle Chapel will open its doors to worshippers on the last Sunday of next month. The Tabernacle people evidently intend to cele- brate the august event to the utmost as special services in honour of the re-opening are to be preached on two succeeding Sab- baths. Stars in the Welsh Congregational world are to preach. Libanus Chapel, Ebbw Yale, has treated our new minister, the Rev. Richard F. Jones, V0-"y liberally. Befone he had an oppor- tunity of preaching he was given a month's holiday—and a cheque. Accordingly he preached to the Tabernacle congregation on Sunday morning last and delighted the con- gregation with a very eloquent sermon. Un- doubtedly he is a "coming" man. In the evening a Morriston student, Mr. J. T. Davies, son of "Bathfab," preached very well. He is at Oxford. Morriston was singularly devoid of attrac- tion last Monday. Everybody was on holi- day bent, but an enjoyable day could not be ootamed at home. We have had sports on this day in the past there were none on Monday, and the almost inevitable eistedd- was time organised (with Morris- on assistance) at Swansea. Consequently the cars were laden with holiday-makers throughout the day. There was a rush for the excursions, and quite a procession of brakes took parties to Gower and elsewhere. Aorriston "dumped" most of its people at Swansea. Rev. Williams, of Caer Gybi, North Wales, a former Clydach resident, preached stirring sermons in lieu of the Rev. J. Gimblett at Zion Church on Sunday, and at Ainon Church anniversary services in the after- noon. Morriston was deprived of the chance last Sunday of hearing its successful Baptist minister, Rev. WT. Thomas Francis, of Aber- duar Church, Llanbyther. His wife, who was indisposed at Llandrindod, became seri- ousJy ill, and Mr. Francis had perforce to remain with her on Sunday. It was very disappointing to Morristonians and perplex- ing to the Ainon Church, but the difficulty was stemmed successfully. Morrnton United engaged in two quoit- ing fixtures last week end—playing LJan- samiet "away" on Saturday and receiving a visit on Bank Holiday from formidable Ebbw Vale. In both engagements Morriston won very satisfactorily. Llansamlet cut up badly and lost by 62 points. The United only failed to score the maximum total by one point—Will Joseph, the oniy defeated ua-ristoiimn, losing to young Matt Wal- ers by 20 to 21. Joe Davies, who came 111 the team vice his campinc captain, was the easiest winner, beating Thomas Evans j Sff'!n marks. On Monday the Mon- mboutshire League men were beaten by 53 points, viz., 156 to 123. J. H. William/and Tom Ayres lost in the home eight, the for- mer by only two, and Will Joseph and Dai Edwards defeated Windsor James and W. Knapman by 17 and 15 points respectievly. Knap Llwyd cricketers won an important match in the Junior Cricket League at Dany- graig. The Danygraig lads happen to head the League along with Bryn, and losing the gamo Jar;t Saturday would have meant to Knap Llwyd losing all further prospect of .wrestling for the premier position. The team oeat the present top eleven at Morris- ton by nine runs, and after a very exciting tussle won again on Saturday by two less. Going to the wicket first Knap put on the moderate total of 36, W. John chiefly contri- buting with a dozen. J. Turney was a most difficult bowler to play and he captured eignt wickets for twenty-three runs. Dany- graig following, made a poor show and were aJ1 out for 29. James Edwards bowled six mcn for a total of 15, ami Harry Griffiths secured the other four wickets for a dozen ¡ rans. Knap. Llwyd s double success against the prospective champions should incent the team to secure the position in the contest they so apparently merit. Bath Excelsior F. C. held a successful annual meeting at the Crown Inn on Satur- day evening when officers were elected for the coming season, and the League medals won by the Excels., as runners-up to Mynydd- bach, were presented to the players. Office oearers elected were: Captain, Mr. Da.vid Davies; vice-captain, Mr. Harry Sladden; treasurer, Air. David Davies and secretary, Mr Theo Evans, 15, Temnle-terrace, Mor- r'.ston The usual committee was also elected. The trophies were presented the Players by Mr. Richard Buckland (chairman, Swansea District League). Without a little lb luck the team might have been champions S faSOn" Ih<; socrf'tary's report was most ahsfying—a balance in hand of £ 2 Is. 3d and the following enviable record • Plaved' ^ains?
