*i*ftt>wriiffiiriiiirii- *i à<II. Aberdare Cinema. Next Week: A Daughter of Satan and The Open Door." The Whitsuntide Holidays have this year been exceedingly popular. Whit- week has earned the unenviable distinc- tion of being called wet week, but this year the weather has left nothing to be desired. It is a sight to see Aber- darians in their holiday attire, all bent on pleasure and sight-seeing. Clarke's the Man, in addition to Carnival mak- ing, etc., has provided a great show at the Cinema. He knows how to cater for the holiday crowds and those crowds know full well that he knows. The popular pictures of the day he always presents to his patrons, but this week I lie has done something more. What pleased the King and Queen will surely please my audiences," says Clarke's the Man, and he's proved right. The talking pictures are the town-talk. They are the topic of the tea-table, the workshop, and the mine, and the holi- day crowds have shown their appreci- ation of Clarke's the Man's endeavours in bringing the best to the town. Mere words cannot express the beauties of these talking pictures, and the various surprises they create. One sees a man walking in the picture, and his footsteps are distinctly heard. An actor is seen to draw the bow over his violin and the melody flows forth as if one were sitting in a concert-room. This extraordinary attraction is one that holiday makers should not miss. Next Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday will be shown that artistic picture, A Daughter of Satan." It is a delightful drama of enthralling interest, and is sure to please all Cinema-goers. The latter portion of the work, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Clarke's the Man presents that charming picture-play, "The Open Door." The story opens with the disagreement of Millionaire John Blair and Pastor Walton over the missionary work. Blair's daughter Grace, in love with the pastor, inter- venes on his behalf, but without avail, and the next day the pastor resigns. Blair's son Jim has to be corrected by his father for his bad habits, and on getting into the clutches of the police turns him out of the house. Blair is incensed when he hears of the love at- tachment between the pastor and his daughter, and orders him out of the house, but Grace goes with him. They marry and continue the missionary work, calling it The Open Door Mission." By this means Jim, who has gone to the bad, is saved. Blair hears of it, and finds his way disguised to the mission. He places a cheque for £2,000 on the plate and a little note asking for forgiveness. The dra- ma ends in the most happy way. On the programme Clarke's the Man has many other star pictures, and on Saturday the popular children's matinee will be continued.

Resolven Recreation Ground. Major Stuart, R.E., of the Local Government Board, oonducted a public inquiry at Resolven on Wednesday as a result of an application from the Parish Council to borrow £ 1,500 for the purpose of laying out a recreation ground on a five-acre site, given by Colonel Edwards Vaughan, Rheola.—Mr. Edward Powell (Neath) made the application on behalf of the parish council, and several rate- payers from Cwmgwrach appeared to oppose.—In placing the facts before the Inspector, Mr. Powell said the site ad- ioined Rugby Street, and was about three miles from Cwmgwrach, where the opposition came from. The population of the parish-roughly 4,500—was grow- ing, and would continue to grow through rapid colliery development.—The In- spector remarked that the gift of Col- onel Vaughan .was a very valuable one, but would the same consideration be shown to the inhabitants of Cwmgwrach, who lived three miles away, if a similar gift were made at their end of the par- ish?—Mr. Powell: Most certainly. In proportion to the population Cwmgwrach has been handsomely treated.—Dr. R. D. Prichard, chairman of the Resolven Parish Council, said there was a necess- ity for a recreation ground at Resolven, and it had his whole-hearted support.— Mr. Frank Beaman hoped that the loan would be extended over as long at period as possible.—Mr. T. Price, voicing the opposition from Cwmgwrach, contended that it was a non-revenue paying scheme. It would only benefit the inhabitants of Resolven, and he felt the ratepayers of Cwmgwrach should be exempted.
