Such an institution would meet with general approval in the district. The Park and Dare workmen are ahead of the Aber- gorchy workmen in matters of this kind. They already boast of the Park and Dare Workmen's Institute, the Park Work- men's Institute, and the Park Workmen's Hall.

Ton-Pentre. On. Saturday last, the remains of Mrs. Elizabeth Mien Jones, of 25, Whitefield Street, Ton, were conveyed to their last resting place at Treorchy Cemetery, amidst manifestations of regret. Deceased, who was an ex-P.T. at Pontrhondda Mixed Schools, had but been married for nine weeks. During her last week at school she was known to complain of a severe cold, which subsequently developed serious consequences, and after a week's severe illness she succumbed, to the con- sternation of all her friends. Deceased was much admired and respected by her large circle of friends, testimony of which was evidenced on Saturday the coffin being surmounted by a number of floral tributes, including two wreaths from her colleagues at Pontrhondda, one from Bodrincallt Schools, whilst the English Congregational Chapel and Sunday School, at which deceased worshipped, also sent wreaths. The services, both at the house and graveside, were performed by the Rev. T. D. Jones, Bodringallt, who spoke in praise of the bright career thus nipped in the bud. Our sympathies are extended to the bereaved husband and Borrowing members of the family. b Mardy.

It will perhaps be of interest to note that the Abergorchy Ambulance Hall was on Thursday last reopened for skating purposes, and the enthusiasm therein has already attained a creditable height. The floor is wholly of the maple type. A very edifying evening was spent by the Treorchy Literary Society last week, when a debate took place between Dr. Fergus Armstrong and Mr. Stanley Jones on Should the Censorship of Plays be Abolished?

Cwm pare. Successful anniversary preaching ser- vices were held at Bethel (E.B.) Chapel on Sunday and Monday evening last. The pulpit was occupied by Prof. Chance, Cardiff University, and the Rev. Daniel Hughes, Pontypool .formerly of Llanelly). Some excellent sermons were delivered by the rev. gentlemen and were appreciated by large congregations at each meeting. The singing, under Mr. John Brown, reached a high standard, and Mr. John Curwen Thomas presided at the organ. Collections were made in aid of the church funds. Cwmparc folk were gratified to receive a visit last week from their old friend, Morgan Edwards (Morgan Good Templar), who, after a lifetime of coal-mining in Park Colliery is now rusticating in the country. It goes without saying that he is a. tremendous admirer of the Hon. Lloyd George, and his visit synchronised with that of the Chancellor to Treorchy. It is rumoured that old Morgan had the privilege of shaking him by the hand and huskily voicing his thanks for the Old Age Pension. Morgan still indulges in his passion for oratory, and was given an ipportunity to coruscate at Salem on Sun- day evening. He still flourishes the pic- turesque bandana handkerchief which at Sunday meetings was his inseparable com- panion. Buffaloism has for some time been a dormant power in Cwmparc, but last Thursday evening the local lodge at Park Hotel was reopened with great success. Mr. Tom Herbert is again at the secre- tarial helm. and several grandees from other Rhondda lodges were present to give their blessings. Insults" were thrown broadcast and" slwallowed" with the customary enthusiasm.

Ogmore Vale. Liberal Meeting.—An enthusiastic meet- ing under the auspices of the Mid-Gla- morgan Liberal and Labour Association was held on Monday night at Bethlehem (W.B.) Vestry to renew the Association in the locality, in view of the pending General Election, and a large number attended. Alderman Llewellyn, J.P., occupied the chair, and at the outset the following resolution was moved by Mr. R. J. Bennett, and seconded by Mr. J. Lewis: That this meeting records its entire agreement with the proposals of the Budget for taxing monopolies and socially-created wealth, and particularly for securing a complete valuation of all the land in the United Kingdom, holding this to be essential to any policy of land and social reform. It further hopes that the Government will resist any mutilation of their proposals which must result in increased employment, better housing for the people, and greater prosperity for our national industries and also pledges itself to heartily support the Government in carrying the Budget into law, and in suarding the constitutional rights of the House of Commons." The meeting was then addressed by Mr. Edgar Jones, M.A., lecturer of the Welsh National Liberal Association, who made a rousing speech in support of the Budget and other leading measures. The chairman put the resolution to the meeting, and it was carried without a dissentient. Anniversary.—The anniversary services in connection with the English Congre- gational Chapel were held on Sunday and Monday last, when the Rev. J. Maldwyn Jones, B.A., Southampton, officiated. The attendance at each meeting was excel- lent, and good -collections were made towards liquidating the building debt. Successes.—We are pleased to report another success of the Harmonic Society under Mr. Wm. Davies, which carried off the first prize at an eisteddfod at Nanty- moel on Saurday, the 23rd inst. Mr. Gwilvm Kinsey was also successful in the bass solo competition. At the same meet- ing, some surprise was created over the result of the ambulance competition, the Ogmore 2nd Squad taking the prize in the face of their first squad, Nantymoel and Gilfach. Social.—The Young People's Society of Hermon (C.M.) Chapel celebrated their opening meeting of the winter months by holding a social tea on Wednesday even- ing. the 20th inst. The rest of the even- ing was enjoyably spent in a competitive meeting, when solos, recitations, speeches, &c.. were rendered by members. Alder- man Llewellyn, J.P., presided. We under- stand that meetings will be held weekly, when papers on popular subjects will be read. Mrs. T. Llewellyn was chosen secre- tary for the session. Hockey.—Ogmore Vale played their first home fixture on Saturday last, when thev met the Swansea Y.M.C.A. on the Crossing Field. Swansea put out a strong team, but the homesters were by no means at full strength. The visitors soon pressed and scored from a rush. This proved to be the only score of the, first half. The second half was of an even character, and Ogmore scored through Joe Davies. A draw was a fitting con- clusion to a game which was played in a downpour of rain.

Junior League under Northern Union rules at Treherbert, the local Northern Union organisation called a meeting of all persons interested on Wednesday last. If four teams can be formed in the dis- trict, the Northern Union Committee will put up a set of gold medals for competi- tion. Very small interest was taken in the meeting, and so the offer falls through. Special preaching services were held on Sunday at Emmanuel (E.C.) Chapel, the Rev. J. Sinclair Evans, Swansea, officiat- ing. Collections were taken in aid of the church funds. The annual tea party was given to the children of tne St. Mary's Church Band of Hope at the Schoolroom last Thursday evening. The children thoroughly en- joyed their treat. After tea, the time was pleasantly passed in enjoyable par- lour games. Mrs. Evans (vicar) and Misses Florrie Lewis and A. Clark (con- ductress of the Band of Hope Choir) ren- dered valuable assistance at the tables. A presentation meeting and smoking concert was held last Monday evening at the Wyndham Hotel in honour of Mr. David Griffiths, Tynewydd, who was departing on the following day (Tuesday) for India, where he had accepted an ap- pointment connected with mining under the Indian Government. Mr. J. Ritson, M.B. (manager of Tynewydd Collieries), presided. The presentation to Mr. Griffiths was made by Mr. Livingstone Perkins, the gift being a gold ring, inscribed with his initials, and a handsome dressing case. Mr. Perkins said it afforded him the greatest of pleasure to present Mr. Griffiths with the gifts on behalf of his numerous friends, and more especially the members of the old Gwalia Wen Male Voice Party, of which he had been a member (cheers). In responding, Mr. Griffiths said that he could not adequately express his thanks for their great kind- ness—a kindness which he would never forget. He sincerely hoped that ere long he would be home with them again. Mr. Iago Picton and others also made complimentary speeches, and musical and other items: were contributed by the fol- lowing:—Messrs. Edward Edwards, Ben Ivor Davies, Edward Griffiths, Ben Thomas, John Jones, D. B. Hooper. Sam Sheppard, Livingstone Perkins, William Todd, and Roger Thomas. Messrs. Danl. Williams and Lewis J.
