THE "NAMELESS" "DIGON" [TO THE EDITOR OF THE NORTH WALES OBSERVER AND EXPRESS."] GM Mixed up with the important matter on your last week's leader page, I noticed a name- less objection to nameless letters. An aimless and moderately intelligent writer finds several slight flaws in my note of the previous week bu.. he is good enough, as far as an elementary acquaintance with English permits, to make feeble attempts at flattery, and still feebler attempts at sarcasm. I note his strongly asserted taste for "digging but search in vain to discover his reason for not indulging it. Be seems to suggest I am some sort of working tailor with a touch of liver com- nlftint though later on he supposes me to be in a sPound state of health. For the rest I am not sure whether he is trying to throw mud-or duqt. It the latter I will show him, with your permission, that red herrings are not so effective in my case as with the local bchool Attendance Committee. As an earnest of this, revenons a nos moutons, let us come back to our town councillors, or rather to the majority of them, for as in Israel of old there are still a faithful few who have not bowed the knee unto local idols nor accepted the town clerk's rulings as final. While it is usual for individual members of the council to acknowledge and feonfess the manifold sins and wickedness which owe their origin to the methods of that inane and inept little clique, the slightest reference to these things inside the council brings down upon its unlucky introducer the indiguant retort that "there never wasnosich" mismanagement, and if discussion should arise themajority quickly decide that whatever is, IS best-or must be made the best of In any case, the wordy-or worthy-councillor must not be too ranch troubled, or he wiU fray that precious gown, and render it unsaleable to the •• nexfc ma* You will be glad to learn, sir, that the few traversers of High street who had not noticed the 9-inch gas mains being replaced by 6-inch ones, have been afforded an opportunity of looking at those newly-made, near the market. The weekly opening was in this case only a small one; so small that it had to be dug crosswise to have any fair chance of obstructing the traffic. I wonder why my dear nameless," but recog- nisable friend fancied I had any cause of com- plaint; or how the consequent addition of my name would remove it Surely he knows as well as I that we in Bangor have for years allowed members of our managing bodies to be chosen in little back-rooms, distinguished chiefly by shelves full of books or by the odour of past and piesent tobacco-smoke. Also, that the men thus ichosen were chiefly such as "the other side" [could not honestly object to. Surely he knows the phrase," Arrange a compromise, hang the can- didates and that (in what is becoming "Bangor fashion ") the first part was done badly and the most useful neglected. And-presumably-know- ing these causes as well as the rest of us know them, how can he even suggest that anyone would grumble at their natural effects. If he, or an- other, intends answering the question* I raised, I hope he will hurry; one good turn deserves another, whioh means the next batch is about ready. For the present, however, DIOON.
