RUGBY. TRBOBOHY 6pts., ABERAVON 3. Aberavon journeyed to Treorchy on aturday, and were defeated by only a Jttiail margin—three points. Nothing j. Uch should hare been expected of either eair^ as the ground was in a deplorable onditlon. This, coupled with the fact «.at only three of the visitors' regular Players turned up, the latter did very well, Ivor Jones, their forward-leader, always doing excellent open work. There ,as a good gathering when Treorchy *cked! off. Play remained for some time J?ar ha-- £ waV- Treorchy opened their „ ore through Dai Jones, who kicked a f goal, from a mark.

After the interval, Aberavon showed up :§°od deal. Pugh, the Seasiders' left ■i XliS, did very smart work near the j.°ttieeters5 line and crossed with a bril- try, which Harris failed to con- vert.

CWMPARC! CRESCENTS 2gls.s RHON- DDA P.T. S 1'. The Rhondda P.T. Soccer team visited Cwmparc on Saturday with a much weakened side. The Crescents, also, were not fully represented. The homesters made an attack on the visitors? goal in the early stages of the game, but a well- judged kick by T. R. Owen sent. them back. Play then became very tame for a while, until W. Lewis gave 'Abel Jones a nice pass, which enabled the latter to score with a. good shot. Then the Crescents again attacked., but good defen- sive play by John Williams and T. R. Owen kept them out. Abel Jones sent in a terrific shot from a five yards range, which the goalkeeper tipped magnificently over the bar. No score resulted from the corner kick which followed, and the interval arrived with the P.T.'e a goal to the good. In the. second half, Cwmparc played considerably better. Eventually, the home outside right centred well, and in trying to clear, B. Bonnel put through his own goal. Soon after, Idris Lewis scored the winning goal for Cwmparc. The Teachers played hard for an equaliser, but failed, time being called with Cwmparc the winners by one point. Idris Lewis and the outside right played well for the Crescents. T. R. Owen, Jack Williams and W. Lewis were the pick of the P.T.'s. BRISTOL CITY RES. 3g!s,, TO^T 0. This Western League fixture was played on the Ymys on Saturday, before a splendid, gate. The game was by far the poorest display yet seen upon the ground. Shortly after the start, the referee, who was rather lax over some deliberate fouls by the visitors, came in for a very warm reception from an angry crowd. He lost complete control of the game, and tactics of the most foul kind were introduced on both sides. At one time it appeared as if the game of footer would develop into a free fight. It is true the Reds were outclassed. The wear and tear of the cup-tie no doubt had told its tale upon the homesters, who were to some extent off their usual game. Still, this does not by any means justify h the tactics adopted. Ton had very. hard lines upon more than one occasion in front of goal. The two goals scored by the visitors were obtained in rather a soft manner, and the finst. especially should easily have been prevented. The third goal came as the result of a penalty, which Percival had not the slightest chance to save. None of the homesters stand out very prominently. Russell was the pick of the backs. Hugh Williams, was the best of the home halves, while Reed, Fyfe and Parry were the most serviceable in the forward line. Bradshaw, on the wing, was a complete failure. He appeared to be quite at sea, and this perhaps was his poorest display since he has joined the ranks of the Reds. Amidst booing and jeering, the referee was accom- panied to headquarters after the game by a hostile crowd. Luckily, nothing more serious occurred. This victory of the City men places them with Treliarris in the running for the Western League championship. LLWYNYPIA CRESCENTS 2gls., TOX- PENTRE 2. This match was played at the Partridge Field, in fine weather and before a good number of spectators, on Thursday after- noon of last week. W. Worlock started for Llwynypia, and some very good play was witnessed on both sides. Just before half-time F. Davies scored the first goal for Llwynypia. The second half was well worth watch- ing, as there was some good foot and headwork, but the Ton team had the advantage in weight. There was some very good play in front of the homesters' goal, which enabled John Williams to score in such a manner that the goal- keeper had no chance to stop the ball, This brought the score level. Just after the kick-off, Norris, of Ton, had to leave the field owing to an injury to his eye, W. Worlock scored the second goal for his side, and J. Reed scored for Ton, thus making matters level, LLWYNYPIA CRESCENTS 3gls.. MAINDY CRESCENTS 1. This match was played on the Part- ridge Grounds on Saturday last, in rough and boisterous weather. Llwynypia started against the wind and had the better of the game right through. Tom Crump isoored the first goal. At half- time the score was level, being one goal each. In the second half, F. Davies and J. Youlden each scored a goal. giving the homesters a lead of two goals. LLWYNYPIA RES. 3gls., MARDY JUNIORS 0. This match was played on the Partridge Grounds on Monday. The Reserves were by far the better team. G. Uzzel and Bert Lewis were the scorerc, in the first half. In the second half, the Llwyriypia boys had to face the wind and rain, but their defence was too strong for the Mardy forwards. Just at the finish, Bert Lewis scored the third igoal for his side from a free kick just outside the penalty area. The Reserves have not had a single goal scored against them by League teams on their own ground, and have only to beat Mardy Rovers to win the cup and medals of the Third Division of the Rhondda League. Cwmparc and Treorchy United. BRIEF REVIEW OF THE SEASON. The United finish their season on Saturday and Monday next, when they play Mardy for the championship of the South Wales League at Ton-Pentre, and Treharrigi at Cwmparc for the Glamorgan League silver medals. The Park men have established one very creditable record, as they nromise to secure posses- sion of the handsome South Wales League cup and medals without incurring a single defeat. This has never been previously done in the cup's history. The United have only suffered seven defeats through- out the season, and they have totalled 157 goals to their opponents' 49. Their best achievements have been victories over Merthyr Town (3—1), Bristol Rovers Reserves (1), Milford, away (4—0), and drawn games with Tieliarris and Ton- Pentre. Bob Peake has been the most prolific scoring forward, although he has been rather closely followed by George Jones and Jack Evans. The United half- ( backs have this season been star per- formers, notably Joe Mitthell and Jack the latter making a very suc- cessful transformation from right wing to right half. Jack Parton has been the mainstay in defence, although latterly Dai Evans has developed into a most resolute defender. Harry Jones, in goal, has shown the best form of his long career, and has proved himself one of the cleverest custodians in Wales. The South Wales League Cup will be presented at the Treharris match on Monday, and it is fully expected the auspicious occasion will be worthily celebrated. SOUTH WALES LEAGUE CHAMPION- SHIP. Cwmparc & Treorchy United team v. Mardy at Ton-Pentre (neutral ground), next Saturday: Goal, Harry Jones; backs, Dai Evans and Parton: halves, J. Hughes (capt.), Joe Mitchell, and W. Wilson; forwards, Thoman, Dicky Jones, Bob Peake, Geo. Jones, and J. Evans. Kick-off, 5 p.m. Referee, Mr. Tudor Davies, Cefn, Merthyr. Southern League in South Wales A conference of the Welsh Soccer clubs was held in Cardiff on Thursday, the 14th inst. Mr. Bradshaw, the secretary of the League, presided. The three clubs connected with the League, last season, viz., Merthyr, Aberdare and Ton-Pentre, testified to the great fillip the League had given to local Soccer, and the enter- prise of the League Management Com- mittee and clubs who granted financial assistance for the first' season. Next season will prove a red-letter time in the progress of Soccer, for the competition will not only be for the championship, but for promotion to Division I. for the two top clubs of Division II., and nothing will be left undone by the local manage- ment to effect an entrance into class during the coming season. The League will comprise at least 14 clubs, among which the following will probably be seen:— Reading and Croydon Common (the two relegaterd clubs), Stoke, Burton United, Cardiff City, Merthyr, Treharris, Aberdare, Ton-Pentre, Salisbury City, Hereford City, Ohesham, Tufnell Park, and North Meet.
Shots for Goal. The Treorchy-Old Boys" Football Team are arranging a football match to be I-pd ti io A till otic Grounds on the h inst. for the. benefit of Mr. John Henry Llewellyn, son of --N t i-. Lemuel Llewellyn, Stuart Street, Treorchy. Mr. Llewellyn, who has already attained the degree of B.A.. is still pursuing a college career at Aberystwyth, and it is a\ pity that financial difficulties retard genuine progress. He has played numerous games for the Treorchy Okl Boys when they were known as Treorchy Lights," and it is to be hoped that he will again take his position among the Old Boys. It is ardently hoped by Treorchy pre- mier team's supporters that the cup will again come to Treorchy., The. premiers compare more than favourably with every other team participating in Glamorgan League fixtures. It was expected that Treherbert Athletic RjF.C. would have played their last League match of this season at Treher- bert on Saturday last, their opponents being Pontypridd All Blacks. The latter, however, failed to arrive. The last game between these teams was played at Ponty- pridd, the result being a. draw. If the form displayed by Treherbert United A.F.C. with such a depleted team against Gelli Athletic on Saturday can be maintainedl there can be little doubt as to the result of their next encounter with the Rhondda P.T.'s. which takes place on Saturday. It is generally believed that we have heard tl\ last of Northern Union foot- ball at Treherbert. The Treherbert team has been broke chiefly by the heavy travelling expenses which had to be incurred in their long journeys to the North." The gates at Treherbert were always poor. It is rumoured that a Soccer team intends to engage the Treherbert Foot- ball Grounds for next season. It is, nevertheless, a. question whether even Soccer will pay its way at Treherbert. If Soccer is to succeed in the Princi- pality, different scenes must be witnessed on the Ynys from that which was seen Saturday last. ^Another case of a weak referee, a T tolnii, by the way. who passed by t most glaring and deliberate fouls. The visitors were chiefly to blame. They commenced the fun, and, of course, it was only natural that the Boys should got a little of their own back. It should be understood that the Visitors had everything to gain, while Ibn had nothing to lose, save the game. Bristol City Reserves and Treharris will now do battle for the Western League championship. Bradshaw, on the wing, was completely o f colour on Saturday, and was repeatedly beaten by his vis-a-vis. Last season's postponed championship of the Rhymney Valley League will be decided during the next fortnight. Tre- hirris and Aberdare will appear at Ton to complete their fixtures. f1I'.J
Soccer Advance- Rhondda to the Front, Triple Winners Honoured. [By SCRIBO."] Never in the history of Soccer has the senior trophy of the South Wales and Monmouthshire Association found a home for three successive seasons until 1909- 10. To perform this feat in the seventh year of their advent into the football arena reflects great credit upon players, committee, and last but least the 'sup- porters of the Ton-Pentre Club. Never- theless, the club has not reached this stage without a struggle which junior clubs so often succumb to. and this suc- cess should encouroge local aspirants to plod along sportingly towards the goal of football ambition, viz.. cup champions. Only nine years ago. and the life of a Soccer club with no League as a nursery lasted about half a. season, to the intense delight of the more fortunate Rugbyite. Now Soccer has come to stay, and its attractive power can be ascertained by one visit to Ynvs Park. It is to be regretted that the cup is a. challenge cup and cannot be won out- right. Thus, apart from the usual medals to the finalists. the club will benefit only by a well-earned victorious career un- equalled in South Wales, and seldom accomplished in any competition through- out Great Britain. Never in the history of the Association has the cun competition been so keen, and that body can congratulate them- selves upon the go-ahead methods of the leading clubs, who only receive a. quarter of the gross gate in the semi-final and final ties, which is poor recompense to heavily financed clubs, and a revision of the rules will be necessary, or the clubs which have filled the coffers of the parent body will have to withdraw from a losing concern, which would be an unfortunate procedure. Next season, the promoters of the club will leave nothing to chance in their struggle for promotion to the Southern League. First Division, and keen interest is already evinced in the composition of the Second Division for the coming season, while a retrospect of the past record of the club places them Welsh favourites for the Southern League honour in the near future. Professionalism in South Wales has made great strides during recent years, and next season again the management will leave nothing undone to procure a team worthy of the reputation of the champions.

A Super-Choir or Orchestra o Mezzotints. A Yorkshire musician, speaking at Bradford last week, said he had dreamed sometimes of a wonderful choir for which an unborn composer would write a miracu- lous work. The choir would be of some 200 voices, all supreme artists, perfect timeists—chosen with an ear to varying qualities of tone—robust and light tenors, high baritones, thick mellow baeees, a few male altos carefully chosen, strong- toned contraltos, bright and smooth sopranos, and perhaps a few boys' voices of flute-like tone. Half-a-score of different timbres would then furnish a palette which would provide a composer with many novel and beautiful combinations. The chorus would then be used in many ways—staccato obligato, closed and open tone, all degrees of intensity combined and contrasted; vowel chords and words, humming and nasal tone, head and chest voices—the choir would indeed be an orchestra of mezzotints. Such a choir, singing a work specially written for them by some Elgar or Bantock, would provide a novelty in the musical world. 'We should advise him to come to Wales and have a look round. Can any of our local choirs lay claim to this dis- tinction?
