Ogmore Vale Hall and Institute. Stone-Laying Ceremony. The ceremony of laying the foundation stones of the above Institute took place on Wednesday afternoon last, the 22nd inst. The site was gaily decorated with bunting, and a very large crowd Issembled to witness the proceedings. Much regret was expressed at the unavoidable absence of Sir S. T. Evans, M.P., Solicitor- General Mr. W. P. Nicholas, Pontypridd (solicitor for the South Wales Miners' Federation); and Mr. W. D. Wight, M.E. They were, however, deputised by Lady Evans and Mrs. Nicholas. The pro- ceedings opened with a selection by the Juvenile Choir, conducted by Mr. W. Oaple, after which the chairman, Mr. John Howells, gave his address. Mr. Beddoe Rees, the architect, also spoke, giving a description of the building. A very interesting part of the ceremony now took place, namely, the presentation of silver trowels to Lady Evans, Mrs. Nicholas, Mr. J. Blandy Jenkins, J.P., and Messrs. D. Llewellyn, T. W. Job, Fred Jones, Charles Burt, T. Lucas, D.C., and John Howells, by the following gentlemen of the committee: —Messrs. D. C. Williams, J. Emanuel, W. Ashman, J. Rees, J. Cottrell, G. Broadway, W. Webster, T. Morgan and J. Howe. The treasurer of the present Reading Room, Mr. T. W. Job, presented the financial statement of the local Institute for the past 25 years. After emphasising the pressing need of a substantial Insti- tute in the place, he made an appeal for generous support to the committee in their great endeavour. Stones were laid by Lady Evans, Mrs. Nicholas, Mr. J. Blandy Jenkins, and Messrs. D. Llewellyn, T. W. Job, Fred Jones, John Howells, T. Lucas, D.C., and Charles Burt. Speeches were made on behalf of the visitors by Lady Evans and Mrs. Nicholas, who apologised for their husbands' in- ability to attend, and expressed the plea- sure it had afforded them to be present. Mr. J. Blandy Jenkins also made a short speech, while Mr. D. Llewellyn spoke on behalf of the locals. A vote of thanks to the visitors was moved by Alderman Llewellyn, and seconded by Mr. D. J. Thomas, D.C., and carried amid cheers. Musical items were supplied at inter- vals during the ceremony by the Temper- ance Band, conducted by Mr. S. Gillard, the Juvenile Choir, and the Harmonic Society, under Mr. W. David.
