..A -_-------Pontypridd Liberal…


..A Pontypridd Liberal Club. BLECTION OF SECRETARY. PRESENTATION TO THE MANAGER. The Pontypridd and District Liberal Club was on Friday evening full to overflowing, the occasion being the election of a secretary in the place of Mr F. G. Edwards, who has resigned, and the opportunity was seized of making a presentation to the popular and successful manager, Mr Walter Davies, who recently be- came a happy Benedict. Councillor D. R. Evans occupied the chair, and presided over the smoker in a capital manner. Five candi- dates offered themselves for the position of secretary, viz., Messrs E. J. Thomas, David Lewis. John Harris, Francis C. Reee, and Wm. Morgan. Messrs Lewis, Harris, and Rees sur- vived the first round of voting, the latter being knocked out in the second round. The final then lay between Messrs Lewis and Harris, the former receiving the majority of votes. Mr David Lewis suitably returned thanks. Coun- cillor D. R. Evans then resigned the chair in favour of Mr Teddy Lewis, who presented Mr Walter Davies, the manager, with the receipt for a handsome and valuable suite of furniture subscribed for by his numerous friends who were members of the Liberal Club. Mr Lewis said the manager had always been held in the highest esteem, and now he had taken unto himself a wife, his friends thought the time had arrived to mark their appreciation of his many sterling qualities by presenting him with a suite of furniture. Mr Davies enjoyed the re- ipect and utmost confidence of a large circle of friends, and he had every reason to be proud of himself. (Hear, hear). His wife, too, dur- ing the short time she had been with them, had won the respcct of every member with whom she came into contact. With such a manager and manageress, and such enthusiasm as was shown that evening, he could not but think that the Liberal Club had a brilliant future before it. (Applause). Only one thing was required. The members would have to prove themselves loyal to the club and the principles it advocated. If they did that they would prove beyond doubt that when it was conducted on broad lines the Liberal Club could not only maintain itself, but prove of service to the party. (Applause). The manager was a Pontypridd boy, born and bred, and from a baby his fond parents had endeavoured to instil into his mind the splendid principles of true Liberalism. (Hear, hear). Mr Walter Davies suitably returned thanks. Among those who contributed vocal and other items at the smoker were: Messrs D. Davies, Tom Farr, Wallie Harris, Walter Chick, Ben Lewis, Charles Phillips, Willie Jones, A. C. Bayliss. Arthur Jones, "Dr" Lyne. Jake Row- lands. Jnek Thomas, Dick Collins, John Sheen, and E. Waite, the accomponist being Mr D. J. Jones.
