Mr T. L. Jones moved that representations J be made to the Local Government Board in respect of the inadequacy of the Government grant made towards the cost of officers' salaries. He pointed out that the amount remained at pre-war rates, whereas the salaries had been practically doubled all round. The Local Government Board encouraged them to increase the salaries, and he thought it was quite a proper thing to do, but he did not think the ratepayers should shoulder the whole of the burden. Mr A. J. Thomas, seconded and the resolu- tion was carried unanimously. It was further decided to circularise other Boards of Guardians for their support. Subject to the sanction of the Local Government Board, it was resolved to pay Nurse McDonald, who was leaving shortly £ 10, as an allowance for uniform and for extra services rendered.

It was resolved to request the Housing Commissioner to view the sites, prior to negotiations. Mr W. Williams moved that a Avater supply be provided for the inhabitants near Gilwern Station from Ffynnon Wenallt. Mr T. Ll. Jones said he would be prepared to second the motion if an assurance were given that other portions of the parish, particularly Darenfeleu, were also supplied. It was" resolved to refer the matter to a com- mittee. Mr A. J. Thomas moved that Mr E. R. Morgan, sanitary inspector for Llanelly, be granted an increase of jEGO by way of war bonus, bringing his remuneration for the year from £ 90 to £ 150. Mr Thomas said he thought they should be generous whilst also having regard for the ratepayers. Mr T. L. Jones proposed as an amendment that Mr Morgan be granted the full Civil Service scale, which meant an additional £ 78. The motion was carried.
The New Loan. The Chancellor of the Exchequer is to be congratulated on having made a duty for the public a profitable pleasure. It is the duty of everyone to subscribe in accordance with means to the new Victory Loan," and they are able to do so with the happy knowledge that they have absolute security and a very liberal annual return for their money. No more attractive opportunity has ever 1^nc i i T "11 A alike, than Mr Austen Chamberlain's ably conceived scheme to place the finances of the nation upon a firm foundation. It should be borne in mind that all enterprise and progress depends on our national credit, and, as Mr Chamberlain has pointed out in a message to the nation, the credit of the in- dividual cannot stand higher than the national credit therefore the restor- ation of our national credit will tend to improve individual credit. This will help to re-establish industry, increase production, reduce unemployment, and lower the cost of living."

Builth, on Tuesday even- ing. and there was a full attendance of members. BAILWAY SERVICE. Mr J. S. Davies drew attention to the fact that the new train from Hereford to Brecon arrived at Three Cocks a few ?i. ii.. n v.vUi^iiaH train which arrived at Builth Wells shortly after 2 p.m., and that militated very much against the success of Builth Wells as a health resort. On the suggestion of Mr James G. Eadie, it was agreed to draw the atten- tion of the LlanAvrtyd and Llandrindod authorities to this matter and to ask the County Member of Parliament to use his influence to rectify the grievance. TELEPHOXE SERVICES. Mr Theo. Handley said the telephone services at Builth was very unsatisfac- tory. people sometimes having to wait two or three hours for a call. He thought a list of complaints should be made and sent to headquarters. It was agreed to forward the com- plaint to the proper quarter. THE PROPOSED PAVILION. Mr J. S. Davies said that the boating facilities at Builth Wells were not what they should be, and he considered that an effort should be made to improve the same by weiring the river. Mr Handley was in favour of Aveiring the river near the bottom of the Gro. Mr Howard H. Lewis said that it would be a great advantage if the river was wider, so that boats could pass each other better. What he considered to be much more important, was a small pavilion for the use of visitors and others. He felt it was essential they should go in for one. He had suggested this to the Builth Urban Council, and he knew the tradespeople would willingly subscribe. He recommended something larger than the boating pavilion, to cost about £ 150. They wanted shelter for the visitors on a wet day. The houses in Builth Wells were rather small, and the visitors could not remain in during wet weather. The tradespeople should take the matter up. Mr Ward and Mr Handley were w.,Vc*- inv H-VO. t v. -3 v a. Mr J. S. Davies was opposed to put- ting the pavilion on the rates. It would benefit the tradespeople more than any- body else. Mr Eadie was of opinion that every- body in Builth benefited from the visitors who came to the town. Mr J. Ward said he was prepared to subscribe £ 5 toAvards the erection of a new pavilion. He wanted to make Builth a progressiA-e toAvn. He also asked If the Council had "made any sug- gestion as regards the site. Mr H. H. Lewis said that in his opinion there was no difference whether it was built on the top or the bottom of the Gro. If the river was going to be wiered the bottom of the Gro would be very suitable. Mr J. Duggan thought that the Coun- cil should take the matter up. He refewed to the fact that the rate had been increased this year by Is Gel in the i. A Sub-committee, consisting of Messrs Ward, W. W. Lennard. H. H. Lewis, Wallace Jones, E. T. Price, and J. G. Eadie were appointed to consider the matter.
