Local Mems. BY MEMO. Last week Mr. Charles Edwin Haig, of Pen Ithon, Radnorshire, died. He was a brother-in-law to both Sir Douglas Haig and Lord Rhondda. Air. C. E. Haig's wife is a sister to Sir Douglas Haig, and his sister was Sybil Margaret Haig, who married Lord Rhondda, then Air. D. A. Thomas, iu 1882. I At the Guardians meeting on Satur- day the members were inclined to defy the authority of the Aberdare Education Committee, who had refused permission i() uL I to the children of the various Cottage Homes to absent themselves from school for the purpose of helping to cultivate gardens. Mr. T. Botting's reason for refusing the request was that difficulties would arise with other boys, who might ask for a similar privilege. Of course, it would be linfait- tc, re- fuse one and grant the other. It the Superintendent of the Cottage Homes has a claim on his children, so has a father, who might require assistance at an allotment, a cliim on his own sons and daughters. And there the difficulty comes in. The Guardians. however, acting on the principle that an empty head is preferable to an empty stomach, are going to keep the Homes boy- from school, in spite of the Com- mittee's refusal. Trouble has invariably arisen where different treatment is meted out to boys or girls in the same school. The late Cecil Rhodes thought once that he had solved the religious teaching problem in schools. He decreed that the religious lesson in certain distr iets in South Africa should be taken last, those children whose parents did not wish them to be taught religion in day schools, to be dismissed. But the scheme did not prove a success. One day the boys still left inside the school walls heard the other boys in the play- ground, one of whom was throwing his cap in the air and shouting, "Thank God, my dad is an Atheist." The new Sunday newspaper, though only a few weeks old, has attacked our senior M.P. three or four times already. The writer, styling himself "West- minster," is not satisfied that Air. Edgar Jones is not in khaki. A month or so ago our senior member was arraigned for that he, having no busi- ness experience, occupied an important post as Controller of the Priority De- partment in the Ministry of Munitions.- A question in Parliament followed, and it, was made clear that Air. Jones was not. in receipt of any salary except his ordinary salary as member of Parlia- ment. Last week the paper returned to the attack; repeated the "no business ex- perience" charge, and added that in the same department Mr. Edgar Jones had safely ensconsed Air. Lewis Jones, Mertliyr. his political agent, and that Air. Lewis Jones was in receipt of a salary of 15s. a day. What is wrong with that arrangement? Surely 15s. a day is not an extravagant wage in these days, when munition workers and miners are earning anything from 20s. to 25s. a day. What "Westminster" evidently wants is to see both the Joneses in kliaki. He belongs to that class of people who say that no service can be rendered the country by anyone except in a khaki garb. Mr. Edgar Jones has undoubtedly performed very valuable work for the country in the office lie has taken up. I He it was who practically created the department, and no one can deny that such work as he is and has been doing for the last 18 months is very essential in these days, viz., deciding who shall have priority on certain materials which are used for war purposes. Newport (Mon.) and Pembroke Borough Tribunals came under the lash of the Daily Mail last week for ex- empting a number of fit young men under 31, and it proceeds with its cam- paign for the abolition of all exemption certificates, white tickets, badges, and Tribunal appeals for every man under that age. To make a hard and fast rule of that kind would be found to operate to the disadvantage of the country in scores of instances, though there is much to be said in its favour. Alany men between 35 and 41 are in the Army to-day—men with families and businesses, and yet last Easter Monday one could not help seeing thousands of strong, sturdy and irresponsible youths of 18 to 25 in Aberdare, swaggering and swanking about as if we lived in normal times. Hundreds had come from Alerthyr and Dowlais to attend the races. The presence of so many young men of military age in mufti is not the fault of the local Tribunals or the mili- tary representatives. It is attributed to the "white ticket" scandal, a system by which managers of and Trade Union officials in the various collieries and other industries could give exemption cards to all and sundry, even to friends and relatives who were not employed at all in the certified industries. Tt is gratifying to find that steps are at last being taken to comb out from munition works and collieries that class of men for the Army, starting with un- married young men 18-25. If this is done thoroughly all over the country Sir William Robertson will have ob- tained his 500,000 new recruits bv July. Parliament will doubtless deal with the subject again before many weeks are past. Mr. Kennedy Jones. M.P.. himself a newspaper man and at one time a colleague of Lord Northcliffe, is proving a great success in his new office as head of the Food Economy Department. Aberdare, as reported in the Leader a fortnight ago. has opened the Economy Campaign, and further steps are an- nounced to take place shortly. The need of the hour is to economise wheat. Here is a chance for those who cannot fight or volunteer for National Service— eat less bread. We have had sugar crowds and potato queues in Aberdare. The way to avert bread queues is to bw saving Oil the loaf now. Allotment holders complain that their appetites grow enormously by the work they do on their patches. This is bad news. If by this open-air labour the men eat 50 per cent. more, how much does the country gain by the allotments? 0 Perhaps some schoolboy will work out that sum. Anyhow it is extremely un- j fortunate if by the cultivation- of food the present consumption of food is in- creased. Is it possible for the allot- I ment holders to postpone the gratifica- tion of their whetted appetites until the. allotments will begin to yield the harvest? I notice that some thoughtful Sabbatarian has pinned a printed poster on the gate leading to the Mardy Field Allotments, near Tanybryn Street. It reads "Remember the Sabbath Day to keep it holy." Like many other verses in Scripture it is being interpreted in more than one way, for last Sunday and Sunday week three or four persons were keeping it holy by a little spade-work.
DR. CAMPBELL MORGAN AT IABERDARE.
DR. CAMPBELL MORGAN AT ABERDARE. On Tuesday afternoon, at Siloa Chapel (kindly lent), the Rev. G. Camp- bell Alorgan. London, delivered an iu- structive sermon to a large congre- gation. Taking for his text Psalm 4(5, 7, The Lord of Hosts is with us, the God of Jacob is our refuge," the re- nowned preacher dwelt upon the words, "Hosts" and "Jacob." The early part of Jacob's life was not well-plea sing to God. One good thing Jacob acquired by leaving home—he learnt .more to walk by faith. And so he (the preach- er) felt persuaded it should be with us. It was a trying thing to be separated from those we had learned to love, and upon whom, in measure, we had learned to lean. God separated us from those we' loved for our good-that we might know Him better, get closer to Him and lesin upon Him more. May we use the path of suffering which would lead us on to the perfect day. remembering always that the Lord of Hosts was with us, the Gocl of Jacob our refuge.—Air. W. J. Evans was at the organ. The Rev. S. Harper, circuit minister, an- nounced that the collection would go towards clearing the debt on Green Street Wesleyan Chapel. He thanked the kind friends at Siloa for the use of their sanctuary.v In the eveiii ilg Di-. Campbell Alorgan delivered a lecture on "Paul in Athens, or the Christian in the City." The Rev. D. Silyn Evans presided:

GO-AHEAD UNION. Remarkable Record of the Ceneral Workers.

During the vear 1916 the membership advanced by 18,819. The number on war service was approxi- mately 40,000 at the end of the quarter. The Union funds have reached a total of over £ 100,000, the highest recorded in the history of the Union. During the year 1916 the funds increased bv about £ 48,000. The amount of dispute pay during the quarter was L156 3s. 6-J-d., which brings the grand total since the establishment of the Union to £ 228,051 4s. lOd. In State and Union unemployment bene- fit £ 58 18s. 4d. was paid, making a total up to date of £ 23,377 12s. 7a.
