The accompanists were Miss E. Edwards and Mr. George Templeman. Prayer was offered by the Rev. C. A. H. Green, Vicar of Aberdaro and Rural Dean- The Bishop, in the course of his address, dealt with the duty of self-sacrifice and self- control. Referring to the incident of the Hebrew soldiers under Gideon, who were test- ed at the brook by the manner in which they drank the water when they wera thirsty, he said that those who were selected to go for- ward were those who were not greedy—men of self-control. That was the lesson he wished to impress on those present. There were other things besides drink they should exercise self- control in reference to. Unless we learnt fJelf. control, England as a nation was doomed. Every nation that had made itself a name amon" the nations of the earth had learnt self- control. That was wonderfully exemplified by a nation which come to the front with such rapid strides during recent years—Japan. That nation, finding tbAt their younger men were becoming deteriorated by cigarette smoking, prohibited smoking by anyone under 21 years of age; and by thus compelling self control, became one of the leading nations of the world. He urged those present to be not their own, but God's. The programme contained a number of ex- cellent choruses, songs, etc.. including "Festal Day," "Fight the Drink," "A Beautiful Land," "Come, Merjv Comrades," "The Hills Resound." "Baby's Asleep," "We must work and pray." and the action "ong. "The Fly." During the evening. Mrs. C. A. H. Green. The Vicarage. Aberdare, presented the Dioces- an Challenge Banner to the Pontypridd branch.
