Pentre Trades and Labour Council. The Housing Question. AI Unspeakable." Habitat ions at Gelli. Several questions of local importance were discussed at the especial meeting of the Pentre Trades and Labour Council on Monday evening, Mr. Thos. Thomas pre- siding. The deputation that waited upon Mr. Percie G. Smith, agent of the Bailey Estate, reported the result of their inter- view as to the proposed footbridge be- tween the upper part of Bailey Street, Ton, and Pentre. It transpired that Mr. Smith was prepared to recommend the proposal to the trustees of the estate, providing that such a bridge was built upon their land, but he declared that the estate could not be expected to contri- buto towards it, as it would provide access to another estate. A letter upon the same matter was received from Mr. D. Treharne, Pentre, agent of the Baglan Estate, who said that he was not aware that it was proposed to construct a bridge connecting the upper part of Ton and Pentre. He failed to see that such a bridge was necessary, as there were good roads to bring the people to the highway, and there was also a, motor station at Pentre. A Delegate: Does he think we want to go to Caxdiff ? (Laughter). The same deputation that waited UDon Mr. Smith was also appointed to wait upon Mr. Treharne with reference to the matter. Messrs. I. T. Rees and Jeffrey Jones gave a report of the Incorporation meet- ing held at Richards' Hall, Tonypandy, on the previous Wednesday evening. Mr. Rees suggested that the Council should also take steps to have the advantages and disadvantages of Incorporation ex- plained to them by experts on the ques- tion. It was resolved that the matter be placed on the agenda for the next meet- ing. The Secretary called the attention of the Council to the forthcoming confer- ence on the Housing Question. He said that other districts were making, great strides in this direction, whilst they in Pentre were lagging behind. He did not think the evidence they had already col- lected was good enough to present their case before the District Council. The Mid-Rhondda Chamber of Trade had issued a pamphlet on the question, and his suggestion was that one member should be selected out of each ward to go round every day to make a full investi- gation concerning matters now being dealt with by the Council, namely (1) overcrowding (2) insanitary conditions, (3) coercion by shopkeepers, (4) monopoly of land by builders, and (5) dearth of houses. The Chairman said that the evidence they already possessed was sufficient grounds to put the Housing Act into operation. There were many houses in Gelli where five and six families, with children, were huddled together. The conditions were unspeakable. Eventually, it was resolved that the committee already having the matter in hand should make further investigations, and secure everything in the way of evidence.

Welsh Topics. A Few Monthlies I Y Cymru." 15 The present number brings to a close the thirty-seventh volume of Y Cymru." This magazine is a sine qua non to all interested in the progress of Welsh litera- ture as far as it lOWs the mind of the common folk to-day. Perhaps the most fascinating article in this month's issue is that from the pen of Robert Bryan, who writes of the Far East. Son" am Eiriau is his subject, and in reading it the Cymro feels that he has an affinity with the Arab of the desert. There are in this article many words which seem to give the birthplace of some of the diffi- cult words of our country. Is it possible that such words as "Bo-lol," "Whit- what," Cis, cis of the Cymro have been brought here by the Iberian of pre- historic times from the banks of the Nile along the North African Coast? These are a few piragraps from this article. I should like to know," writes the author, if there is any connection between the wit-wat of the Arab and chwil-chw at' of the Cymro ? The former" stands for a small winged which according to the popular idea is neither a beast nor a bird, a creature fond of coming from his retreat in the twilight- the bat (yslum y nos). The latter word describes an unstable character. Hü, too, loves to flitter between two lights, and oftentimes he is in his own light." I-Iere is an example of a strange word which has the same meaning in Tunis, Egypt, and Wales. Once, while in Tunis, I sa«- a ship loading some wild dark swine, by lifting them in huge cradles, When the swineherds wished to get them out of the cradles they called, Cis, cis, cis, cis," in the same manner as a maiden from Arfon or Meirion calls upon the young pigs to the trough. I heard the same word after this near Cairo, just out- side a Coptic village." As to the other contents of this maga- zine, there are articles on Cefn Coed Cymer and its historic preachers. Caneuoi-i William Cornock." Siartiaid Casnewydd," Hafdaith." "Morris Owen," Trefor Bo wen." •• Owain Aran," and Fioled." The Editor of the Cymru hopes that with the incoming year there will be a great increase in the number of readers. The plan of the new volume will be cer- tainly one which will appeal greatly to the old readers. It will contain an outline of the history of our literature, together with extracts descriptive of this illustrious treasure. Welsh history—national and local-will occupy a prominent phice so will local folk-lore, belles-lettres, and the social life of Wales. From the office of Messrs. Hughes, Wrexham, have come their monthlies, Y Cerddor," Yr Ymwelydd Misol." Cymru'r Plant," and "Almanac v Miloedd." All these are useful and find a welcome in all parts of Wales. Mr. E. T. Davies, J.R.C.O., forms the subject this month in "Ein Cerddorion." He is well known in South Wales, so that any remarks concerning his career would be superfluous. In the appreciation on Mr. E. T. Davies there is quoted a passage containing his opinion on the present state of Welsh music. Says he: My chief regret is that 'we in Wales are so backward in com- position, but we are showing (signs of great musical activity in recent years, and I am not without hope that we, too, shall in the near future send forth to the world musical composers who will not only uphold the traditions of British music, but create a new school capable of expressing that deep religious fervour and Celtic fire which is so deeply and firmly rooted in every Welshman's 'heart. We have the emotion and feeling; what we lack is technique, which comes as a result of training and living in an atmo- sphere of lofty music. What a pity we have so few opportunities of listening to the best music. The Cardiff Festival is doing a lot of good in South Wales but we want far more frequent and less ex- pensive opportunities of educating our- selves. The schools should also take music more seriously, and train the young minds in such a way that they will go out into the world with ambitions to excel in music and develop their faculties in this direction."
