AN EISTEDDFODIC GRIEVANCE. Dear Mr. Editor,—Kindly allow me through the medium of your paper to draw the attention of the public to the continual unfairness which exists at our eisteddfodau. At the Cwmaman Juven- ile Eisteddfod on Saturday, June 24, this unfairness was again openly mani- { fested especially in the choral competi- tion. The committee endeavoured to remedy matters by placing on the con- ditions of competition that members of juvenile choirs were not to exceed 16 years of age. But members of some of the choirs condescended to very low practices to make themselves look young. How long are we to suffer this great wrong and iinfairness" What j comparison is there between a ladies i choir and a choir of juveniles (school II children) not over 14 years of age. How are we to encourage musical cul- ture if we allow these actions to pass I' by without notice. Cannot this pro- blem be solved;-1 I would suggest that all choirs intending to compete should be present at the morning test and asked to produce birth certificates when suspected of being over age, or that all choristers be asked to do so. I hope that eisteddfod committees will not ignore the suggestion, but give a thought to it, or initiate a better one. If this practice is allowed to go on as at present it will surely prove detri- mental to the eisteddfod.—Yours, EISTEDDFODWR.
