Presentation at Newtown. A large number of friends gathered together at Newtown Schools, Mountain Ash, on Friday evening for the purpose of honouring' Mr. Joseph Perry and Miss Olive Beacham. Mr. T. Gwatkin presided, and in the course of his re- marks mentioned the splendid services rendered to St. Dyfrig's Church Choir. For 14 years he had been the conductor. and had been a chorister since its in- ception. Miss Beacham had also ren- dered valuable help in the ladies' sec- tion of the choir for several years. A beautiful eight-day marble clock was handed to Mr. Perry by Mrs. Jefferies. A biscuit barrel and a case of fish knives and forks were handed to Miss Beacham respectively by Mr. Archer and Mrs. Notley. Each of the presents was inscribed, "Presented by friends of St. Dyfrig's." Several congratulatory speeches were made, and Miss Beacham and Mr. Perry made suitable acknowledgments. The musical programme was contri- buted to by Miss Beatrice Bartlett and Messrs. Ellery, Watkins, and Archer. The collectors for the presents were: Mrs. (P.S.) Barnes, Miss Jennie Davies, Miss Gertie Davies, and Mr. T. Gwatkin. j
Abercwmboi Jottings. BY PASSER-BY. I was asked the other day who is re- sponsible for naming the new streets in the place. I know of a row of houses in the Garden City that has been tenanted for over two months. But there is no name to the street yet. Under the National Registration Act one is liable to a fine of JS5 if a change of address is not reported within a cer- I tain period to the authorities. But in this case people have gone to a nameless street to live. They all want coal, etc., but cannot order any because they have a local habitation but no names. On one occasion the poor carter had the time of his life trying to find a certain house. He spent a whole day at the job. Some are bitterly complaining because that House of Lords in Sweet 'Berdare has discontinued the railless cars, the one and only boon ever given to us by that body.
Haggar's Mountain Ash. NEXT WEEK: "THE GIRL WHO TOOK THE WRONG TURNING." Mr. Richards, in preparing his pro- gramme at the Palace, always insists on having something different from any- body else's in it. Visitors can always rely on seeing something new. This Thurs- day, Friday, and Saturday he is screen- ing that remarkably-named film, "The ¡ Shop-soiled Girl." Right out of the common way it shows to all the I temptations and lures of the shop-girl. It was first prodiieed by Mr. Walter j Melville at the Lyceum Theatre, Lon- j do 11, and ran for hundreds of nights. It is sure to please, and Mr. Richards confidently recommends it to his patrons. On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of next week he is producing another adaptation of a Melville melodrama. "The girl who took the wrong turning has been seen in the Mount in dramatised form, but the picturisation is much clearer and gives infinitely more detail. I It teaches many lessons and points many morals. A strong programme of I comedy, drama and comic will also be I shown.

Nid oes angen hysbysu neb o honoch tua Swyddfa y "Darian" pwy ydyw y gwron y mynnai'r lIe ei anrhyd- eddu, oherwydd un o blant Aberdar ydyw. Yno y ganwyd. y magwyd ac yr adflysgwyd ef, hyd nes y cafodd fyned- iad i mewn i Goleg Crist yn Aberhon- ddu. Ar ol treulio rhyw bum mlynedd yno yn yfed gwybodaeth mor naturiol ag yr yfai awyr iachus gwlad Brychau, daeth allan oddiyno ar ol llwyddo i ennill llawer gwobr ac ysgoloriaeth.
