Pentre. The Rev. D. G. Morris, Nantyglo, Mon., has received and accepted an unanimous call to the vacant pastorate of Zion (E.B.) Church. It will be remembered that the rev. gentleman resigned the above pastorate a few years ago, after a success- ful ministry lasting over eleven years, and was succeeded by the Rev. Richard Rees, now of Abertillery. Mr. Morris and his genial family can warrant upon a warm welcome to the scenes of their past labour. A presentation meeting, was held at the Queen's Hotel, under the auspices of the four neighbouring lodges, viz., Treharne No. 406, Crawshay Bailey 579, Major Lewis 541, and Danyderi 461, when Bro. Benjamin Cole, D.P.G.P. of the Province. who has been raised to the Third Degree Honour of Knighthood, was presented with chain, apron and gauntlets by the members, in recognition of his valuable services. In the absence of Sir Harry Burnet, a cold collation which preceded the presentation was presided over by Primo Vaughan Reynolds, chairman of the presentation committee. The Knights afterwards held; a meeting in an adjommf room, conducted by Sir Harry Burnett^ K.O.M., senior officer, who was assisted by Knights D. J. James, Tudor Jenkins, Thomas Elliott, Harry Munday, Thomas Evans, Harry Marks, John Ablett and John Williams. Votes of thanks to the host and hostess, for their hospitality were accorded at the close of the meeting. Porth. Mr. Tom Thomas, L.R.A.M., of Ynvs- hir, has received a very important ap- pointment at Aberystwyth University. Mr. Thomas, though having worked for a number of years underground, has been for a considerable period a professor of music and of voice production, md many of our local singers owe their ad\ uicement and achievements at eisteddfodau to his efficient training. The Porth and Cymmer Male Voice Party once more intend entering com- petition. In view of this fact, at a meet- ing held last week Mr. Phillip Jones, one or the oldest members of the party, was selected to conduct them. Mr. Rhys Evans, though not desiring to enter the musical arena to contest any more, has for the time being placed the party in the hands of Mr. Jones, and has promised his assistance if desired. Last week, a party of excursionists left Porth for the Isle of Man. Travelling home by night, and desiring company, each one brought home with him a Manx cat. Very entertainifig company, no doubt.
