Senghenydd Presentation. At a general meeting of the Seng henydd Eisteddfod Committee, held on Monday evening, at the loca] Library, the treasurer, Mr B. W. Williams, general manager of the Senghenydd and Aber Vallev Co- operative Society, and nephew oi Councillor E. Morris, Penrhiwceiber, with whom he spent a number of years as assistant manager, was pre- sented with a beautiful Westminster mahogany chimes clock and a silver- mounted walking stick, both suit- ably inscribed, in recognition of valuable services rendered in differ- ent capacities. The Rev. E. Thomas, C.M., pre- sided. supported by Councillor John Davies, Rev. Campbell Davies, B.A.. and a number of other promin- ent local gentlemen. The Chair- man expressed his great pleasure in being present to do honour to a per- son whom they all highly respected. He referred to Mr Williams' quali- ties and value as a citizen, always ready to take active part to support any good cause and most enthusias- tic in everything he took an interest in. Mr Wm. Thomas, treasurer of the East Glamorgan Miners, in making the presentation, spoke in eulogis- tic terms of the very valuable ser- vices rendered by the recipient as treasurer and one of the founders of the Senghenydd Eisteddfod. He had rendered excellent services as organiser to many good movements. The Rev. Campbell Davies en- dorsed the remarks of the previous speakers. The recipient had at all times discharged his duties in a most efficient and satisfactory manner. Councillor John Davies remarked that Mr Williams always gave of his best. Nothing appeared too ardu- ous for him, and he was quite happy in his work. Mr Griffith Davies. contractor, wished to endorse all the statements made. Mr Williams and himself had been schoolmates on the banks of the Tivy. When rising to respond, Mr Wil- liams was loudly applauded. He hardly knew how to find words to adequately express his thanks for the beautiful gifts presented to him that evening. He particularly wish- ed to thank the speakers for their kind words. He very heartily thanked Mr Thomas for making the presentation, and for the compli- mentary remarks. He felt indebted to Mr Thomas for the very kind and sound advice he had given him on many occasions. The little he had done in the interest of the Seng- henydd Eisteddfod had been a labour of love to him. He thanked them all from the bottom of his heart for the very kind appreciation of his ser- vices.
Scraps. BY "THE SCRIBE." Mr D. A. Thomas regrets that he did not go to Canada 25 years ago instead of wasting his time in the House of Commons. There are many in the Aberdare Valley who regret that D.A. is not still in the House of Commons. The time when he was M.P. for these Boroughs was the time of their lives. Now that every one has something to say on the Welsh drama question, it is interesting to know what the great Bernard Shaw thinks of the matter. This is how G.B.S. lately delivered him- self If it be really true that Wales is in so benighted a condition that min- isters are still to be found there who not only do not go to the theatre, but try to prevent other people from going, forgetting that a theatre is a place where two or three are gathered to- gether, and that God fulfils himself in many ways without consulting the local clergy, I venture to remind these walk- ers in darkness that if they strangle the Welsh theatre in its cradle they will have, not a country without a theatre, but a country delivered over wholly to the crude cinematograph melodramas of the American and Italian film makers, and to musical comedies on tour from London." The two gay cousins, after enjoying themselves during the week, went on the tramp on Saturday last, one with the object of playing the game of "hide and seek" the other, who had pre- cautiously disposed of all his market- able garments, feels no anxiety that anyone will be tempted to rob him of his well-worn valuables.
Husband and wife cannot, by the na- ture of things, be equal. There must in. every family be a strong, commanding, dominating personality." "Yes, but that one is generally the cook." When Shimmerplate arrived home an hour later than usual he was nibbling a clove. "I stopped in a concert hall for a few moments," he observed. The music was intoxicating." That's right." exclaimed his better half— blame it on the music." blame it on the music."

Therefore it invites all members to vote 'For' in the forthcoming ballot."

H. Templeman. The dramatis personae in both cantata and sketch was the same as pieviously. Mr John Oliver Jones. Trecynon, a member of the O'Mara Opera Company, gave an excellent rendering of the song, "Beloved, it is morn" (F. A very laughable action song, "The Tramps," was given by 1 te. E. < Evans, Drummer T. Richards and Bugler F. Phillips. Mr Geo. H. Tem- pleman presided at the piano in the un- avoidable absence of Mrs. LI. M. -Jones.

We are glad to note, however, that he is slowly recovering. Mrs. Sheldon and Mr D. R, Tasker, representing the He- storation Fund and C.L.H. respectively, worked assiduously as ticket sellers.

ASGRE LAN."—On Wednesday, May 10th, there was a crowded house at the Public Hall to witness the per- formance of the Welsh drama, "Asgre Lan (Rev. R. G. Berry) by the Beth- lehem Dramatic Society, Abercwmboi. Mr T. Lloyd, Cwmbach, made an ideal chairman. Solos were given by Messrs. William Harries and John Henry Wil- Ila in s,,Aber(,-wmbol, and Miss Nellie Jones. Cwmaman. Mr Evan Jones, Cwmaman, and Mr J. W. Evans, Adv. R.A.M., R.C.M., were the accom- panists. Those who had witnessed the performance of the author's other pro- duction, Ar v Groesffordd," at Aber- aman, were anxious to see this drama also. They were not disappointed, for "Asgre Lan" is brimful of humorous and thrilling movements. The tale was well told by the different characters. The audience was moved alternately to tears and laughter, and loudly cheered the actors. It was evident that the play was thoroughly enjoyed. "Asgre Lan" or "Clear Conscience" is a drama of modern Welsh life, and in point of comprehensiveness and variety is splen- did. It presents a bigger Slice of life to the audience than many such plays, and pathos and wit are well bal- anced in it. It gives us a true picture of the thoughts and doings of the min- ister and his congregation. The story bears the hall-mark of the experienced writer. It was evidenceHhat the play was greatly relished by Cwmbach people. The characters are well select- ed, and it would be hard to find a better lot of actors from any single congrega- tion than these fifteen from Bethlehem. The acting was excellent in the princi- pal and the minor parts. The caste was as follows :—Mr. Evans, the minis- ter, Mr John B. Davies; Gwen Evans, his daughter, Miss S. D. Davies; Gruffydd Hughes and Mari Hughes, Mr William Morgan and Mrs. W. R. Grif- fiths; Morris, their son, Mr Henry Williams; Dr. Lewis, Mr John Henry Williams; Roderick y Bedol, Mr D. Lewis Evans; Policeman, Mr William Harries; Auctioneer, Mr Dan T. Jones; Deacons, Messrs. Dan Isaac, James H. Williams, and W. R. Griffiths; Auction- eer's assistant and clerk. Messrs Dan Isaac and Tom Lewis. We understand that it is the intention of the party to visit Aheraman and Trecynon. AN e wish them every success inasmuch as their motto is, "J yru'r hen iaith yn ei blaen."
