Fancy Dress Ball. Successful Fishguard Function. One of the most successful social functions ever held in the locality took place in the Temperance Hall on Wednesday night last week, assuming the form of a fancy dress ball. The event owed its origin to Mrs A J Hodges and a number of other ladies, and its success to a committee of organisation con- sisting of Mrs Hodges, Mrs Jenkins, Mr and Miss Monk, and Messrs W Bateman, J S Thomas, B.A., and R E Williams the last- named of whom efficiently discharged the duties of honorary secretary. The spacious hall in its new guise, .fresh from the hands of the renovators, presented an extremely attractive spectacle, the general effect being greatly enhanced by pendant flags, streamers of bunting, and other gay decorative devices. Mr Owen Gledhill, B.Sc. tactfully dis- charged the duties of Master of Ceremonies, whilst an admirably-diversified programme of dance music was provided by Mr A J Hodges, who was assisted by Mrs Eccles, A.L.C.M., Miss Lowry, B.A., and Mrs T Perkins, Hendrewen Close upon a hundred devotees of the Ter- psichorean art put in an' appearance, and when dancing was in full swing the spectacle presented by the gaily-dressed throng was one I of sparkling animation and striking pictur- esqueness. Ccjnsiderable taste and ingenuity had been exercised in the choice and design of dressess, and Mrs W O'Donnel experienced great difficulty in making her adjudication upon their relative merits. The march past was an interesting and attractive feature of the proceedings, and shortly after its termination the awards were announced by Dr O'Donnel, the prize winners being Mrs A J Hodges, and Mr George Bennett respectively. The former was pic- turesquely attired as the Mexican Lady in The Merry Widow,' whilst the latter was an ideal Mephistophiles.' Both the winning costumes were supplied by Messrs H and M Rayne, of the Theatrical Stores, Waterloo- road, London. The formal presentation of the awards having taken place, Mrs O'Donnel was cordi- ally thanked, on the motion of Mr George Benneit, seconded by Mr R E Williams, for her services, the doctor briefly responding on on his wife's behalf. The costumes in general were of such ex- cellence that comparisons would be invidious. Suffice it to say that amongst others who at- tracted attention were Miss Jenkins,'Zingari,' Miss Roberts, Mrs Siddons'; Miss Daisy Reynolds, Gipsy' Mrs Stephens, Halleys Comet'; Miss Lily Williams, Bo-peep'; Miss Mork,' Dawn Mr Leo Sharp,' Mata- dor Mr R E Williams, Judge Mr H Gordon,' M le Marquis from 4 Les cloches de Corneille' Mr N Peregrine, 'Toreador' Mr G Bateman, Courtier of George V Miss Doris Richards,' Robin Hood'; Miss Jenkins, Watteau Shepherdess Mr F W Byrne, Mon ami, Pierrot'; Mrs 0 Gledhill,' Night'; Mr J W Jackson,'Coastguard'; Miss Rees, Rou- ge-et-noir' Miss Williams, Country Maiden Mrs Morgan, Eastern Princess Mr Morgan, Jack Tar Miss Burnnand, Pierette Miss Devonald (Letterston), Dame Wales Miss Lowry, Baby and Miss Edith Williams, Forget-me-not.' The foregoing list i. necessarily incomplete, and we shall be pleased to publish a supple- mentary one next week, should the requisite particulars be forthcoming. During the course of the evening a recherche supper was served upon the spacious new stage, the arrange- ments being in the hands of an assidu- ous band of ladies consisting of Mrs Hodges, Mrs Burnnand Mrs Monk, Mrs W Evans, (Tower Hill) Mrs J Richards, Miss Wilcox, and the Misses Monk and Jenkins. The proceedings, which were throughout of an exceedingly enjoyable character, were protracted until the advent of the early hours of the morning, and at the close Mr E W Rees proposed a hearty vote of thanks to the organisers, to the ladies who had been responsible for the catering, and to Mr Gled- hill, which was enthusiastically accorded. Mr Hodges proposed a similar compliment to Mr R E Williams, and this, having been carried with acclamation, was suitably ack- nowledged by the hon. sec. The financial proceeds, which realised a considerable amount, will be devoted towards defraying the cost of public improvements.
