Merthyr's Labour Mayor. Mr Enoch Morrell appointed A private meeting of the Merthyr Borough Council was held on Monday afternoon. Mr Enoch Morrell was pro- posed as Mayor for the ensuing year, it having been previously decided that the selection should be made from inside the Council, and his adoption was carried by 17 votes to 5. Mr Enoch Morrell was born at Troedy- rhiw 45 years ago, and went to school until the age of ten years, when he went to work underground at the Saron Level of the Hill's Plymouth Colleries Co. He followed the occupation of a collier for 20 years, when he became a checkweigher at the Merthyr Vale Collieries- a posit- ion he holds to-day. Mr Morrell has tak- en a prominent part in the public life in the district, for he was for four years a member of the now defunct Merthyr Dis- trict Council. In that capacity he acted as chairman of the Health and Lightning Committees. He is also an overseer for the parish, and represents the Taff and Cynon District on the Counciliation Board, and on the Executive Council of the Federation. He is also assistant secretary to the district. Mr Morrell is no boisterous fanatic, but has all the ele- ments of the silent reformer. He is temperate in his views and most cautions and deliberate in his actions.
