Allotments in the Rhondd 8. Handicapped by Land- owners. Why is there no General Demand? For several months past, the Rhondda District Council has been negotiating with local landowners for land for allotment purposes under the Allotments and Small Holdings Act. The following are among the replies received by the Clerk (Mr. W. P. Nicholas) in response to a com- munication enquiring whether they (the landowners) would be prepared to place at the disposal of the Council, if re- quired, land for the above purposes, and, if so, upon what terms: — Sir W. T. Lewis, Bute Estate: Shall have my attention as soon as I am free from the pressure of Parliamentary busi- ness." Mr. John M. Randall, Dunraven Estate: "-All the spare land Lord Dun- raven has at Treherbert is let out in garden allotments by the tenant of the farm, and at Tonypandy all the suitable land has been built upon. I do not know of any land belonging to Lord Dunraven available for the purpose of allotments." Mr. B. R. Heaton, Crawshay Bailey Estate: I am a little afraid that there is nothing on the Bailey Estate very suit- able for the purpose, but I will go very carefully into the matter and write you again." Colonel Turbervill: "I have only two farms over 50 acres in your district-Pen Pontrhondda (87 acres) and Troedyrhiw (214 acres), in both of which a consider- able amount is being taken up for build- ing. If you will let me know of any par- ticular piece of land which you wish to acquire for allotments, I will see whether I can arrange with the tenant to sub-let to you." Mr. David Treharne, Baglan Estate: There is no land available for allotment at present on the Baglan Estate in this district. We have, however, a number of plots already let for this purpose at Pentre, Pontygwaith and Bodringallt, but I may say that some of these change hands very often, whilst I let some 11 allotments at Penyfai, near Aberkenfig, four years ago, five of which have not been cultivated for the last year or two." Mr. A. O. Evans (Williams and Evans), Trealaw Estate: We placed your letter before Mr. Rhys Williams, who has not yet given us a reply. He is at present abroad, and will not be back for some time. We fear the matter must remain in abeyance until his return." The Clerk also communicated with the applicants for allotments, and pointed out to them that in any event the Council would not be able to provide allotments near their dwelling-houses as was desired in some instances, but that they would have to acquire a piece of ground in some part of the locality to be parcelled out to duly qualified applicants, and enquiring whether under those circumstances the applicants would be prepared to cultivate any land so allotted to them. The replies received disclosed a variety of tastes. While some of the applicants were prepared to cultivate land within a reasonable distance of their homes (the reasonable distance varying from a quarter to one mile), others declared they could not manage it if away from the house," whilst not a few were content to culti- vate land anywhere it was obtainable. The foregoing replies were considered at last Friday's meeting of the Council. The Clerk said the- had done every- thing in their power to get allotments for the public, but they were handicapped by the landowners. Moreover, there was an unwillingness on the part of the appli- cants to take the land unless it was near or adjoining their own gardens. It was for the Council to consider whether the replies received constituted a sufficient demand to justify the Council to com- pulsorily acquire these sites. Councillor Ben Davies was of the opinion that when the facts were more widely known that allotments could be had at a reasonable price, hundreds of allotments would be taken up. "I think," added Mr. Davies, "we should push this ques- tion further, and get to know whether these landlords and agents are prepared to let these portions." The Clerk: That is not the point. The question now is whether we are going to tackle these men. We cannot go and take so many acres in the hope that appli- cants will write. We must get the appli- cants to write first. Councillor Tom Harries: Is the proce- dure very expensive? The Clerk .I.o. Councillor Harries: Does it require a certain number? The Clerk: We must get a general demama. We have plastered the whole district so that people may know and give us their names. Councillor Harries said that one reason why there was not a greater demand was that there was no security of tenure about the land. After they had laboured with the land, the colliery owners or builders would require it for development and building purposes. Councillor Wight said that if they went further away there would be no insecurity of tenure. The matter was referred back to the Legal and Parliamentary Committee.

Porth and District Trades and Labour Council. The monthly meeting of the above, Council was held at the Washington Hotel on Monday evening. There were present Alderman Morgan Williams and Coun- cillor Ben Davies. and representatives of the various colliery lodges of the district there were present also delegates from the Tramvvaymen's Union, Porth Shop Assistants' Union," the Municipal Em- ployees' Association, and the Gasworekrs' Union. Mr. Rhys Jones presided. The delegates of the Shop Assistants, M.E.A., the Tramwaymen, and Gas- i workers respectively reported that their lodges had decided to affiliate with the Trades and Labour Council. A sympathetic vote of condolence was moved with the wife of the late Mr. Geo. Caldicott, who for many years was secre- tary of the Labour Council. Apropos of the proposed vote of censure upon Councillor Ben Davies, the Lady Lewis delegate said his lodge had passed a vote of censure upon the Councillor, not merely because of the £100 voted by the District Council towards the reception and decorations in connection with the recent visit of Princess Louise, but because of the manner in which the Council had treated letters of protest from the Lady Lewis Lodge and the Pentre Trades and Labour Council. According to the Press, when -the letters were read, there was laughter, and naturally that was treating the letters with contempt. He did not wish them to think that they had any idea of opposing Councillor Ben Davies at the next election. Councillor Davies, in replying, said that he was not present at the meeting when the £100 was voted, so he had not voted for or against it. Alderman M. Williams and others spoke on the subject, and after some discussion, the matter was referred back to the various lodges for a mandate on the ques- tion. The Coedcae House Coal delegate brought forward a motion for securing more Welsh teaching in the schools. He urged that the Welsh language should be the medium through which other subjects should be taught, and not English. It was not enough that merely the Welsh language should he taught. Strong objection was raised to the motion by the Oymmer delegate, on the score that the Welsh language was not a useful subject. Not that there were objections to Welsh itself being taught, but outside of Wales it was thought prac- tically useless. An extension of French or German would be more useful. (Cries of No, no "). The matter was allowed to fall through. Mr. Tom Llewellyn was appointed dele- gate to W.E.A. Conference at Cardiff.

Percie Smith s Orchestral Concert. On Tuesday evening of last week, at St. James' Schoolroom, Cymmer, Porth, Mr. Percie G. Smith's Orchestra of forty performers gave an instrumental concert to the music-lovers of Porth and district. The spacious edifice was thronged with an appreciative audience, drawn apparently from all parts of the Valleys. Dr. R. D. Chalke, M.A., presiding, ex- pressed himself delighted with such a large attendance. There was, he said, a saying that people did not appreciate what they could get for nothing, but in the face of that large audience, lie thought the old saying was disproved. Wales had always been keen on music, but never on instrumental music. Great credit was certainly due to Mr. Percie Smith for endeavouring to foster and create an appetite for classical orchestral music, pure and simple (applause). Speaking of the genius of Beethoven, Dr. Chalke said that the "Eroica" was composed to describe in music the career of the great Napoleon. Mr. Smith, who was given a very cordial reception, addressing the audience, ex- pressed his unlimited pleasure at seeing such an appreciative audience. He also expressed his indebtedness to several of the orchestra, who travelled at their own exipense in order to accomplish the task of familiarising the people with the works of the Old Masters. The musical part of the programme opened with Beethoven's historic Sym- phony, "Eroica," and the audience listened eagerly to the rendering from beginning to end. Afterwards, Mr. Smith gave a technical exposition of the various movements, and illustrated by contrasts some very striking passages. The manner in which the conductor divided the Symphony in order to give clear, lucid explanations upon them. aroused the admiration of all present, and certainly enhanced his reputaton as an orchestral conductor and musician. May their worthy object be realised.
——————————— Pentre Police Court. Picture Post Card Causes Trouble # Picture postcards do not always bring joy to the recipients, as was evidenced at this Court on Monday last, when Amelia Parkmen, of 170, Court Street, Tony- pandy, summoned Lavinia Morgan, of 169, Court Street, Tonypandy. for using threatening language. It appears defendant was incensed at a picture postcard received by her, the authorship of which she attributed to complainant in no uncertain terms- Complainant, who was represented by Mr. Richard Hill-Male, Tonypandy, denied all knowledge of the postcard, and, for her ebullition of temper, defendant was bound over in the sum of C5 to keep the peace for three months and was ordered to pay the Court fees.
