BUTTINGTON. CONCKRT.—A very successful concert in aid of the County War Fund was given in Buttington school on Thursday evening. The room was filled to its utmost capacity, despite the drizzling rain and the influenza epidemic. The programme was excellent and well sustained. There were two re- grettable changes owing to illness. Miss Morris was prevented in this way from singing, and Mr Craven from giving 'cello solos. All the artistes were well received and encored. Among those present were Mr and Mrs T Morgan-Owen, Misses Morgan-Owen, Mr M and Master Gurth Morgan- Owen, Mrs and the Misses Roberts, Pool Quay Vicarage; Misses Jones, Gungrog; Miss Oakley, Miss Watts, Miss Edwards, Miss Powell, Miss Wil- liams, Miss Davies, Mr and Mrs Price and Miss Lizzie Price, Bryntirion Rev Merlin Davies, and the Vicar. Mr T Morgan-Owen discharged the duties of chairman and conductor in a manner that left nothing to be desired. He alluded to the present war, and declared amid loud cheering that as we had put down slavery among the blacks of America so would we put down slavery among the whites of Africa." The Vicar thanked those who had taken part in the proceedings, with. out forgetting those who would have done 80 were they able. Mr Morgan-Owen deserved well of them for presiding and for defraying all the expenses incidental to that concert and that of the following evening at Tre wern, so that all the money realised by the sale of tickets should be given to the "County War Fund" and the "Imperial Yeomanry Fund." Miss Oakley was not forgotten for kindly lending her piano Rose Evans, Annie Williams, and Fanny Kinsey for selling tickets Messrs Pugh (Church Cottage), Sankey, Davies (Crossing), and Davies (Dragon), for preparing the school and carting the piano; Messrs Roberts (The Hope), and Roberts (Canal Cottage), for their services in the room. The following was the pro- gramme :-Piano solo, Miss Roberts duet, Who is Sylvia?" the Rev Merlin Davies and Mi M Morgan-Owen reading, the Rev D Stephens song, Rosemarie," Mr T M Price harp solo, March of the Men of Harlech," Miss Morgan-Owen; song, "11u!c Britannia," the Rev Merlin Davies; song, "The scent of the new hay," Miss Roberts song, Ellen Bawn," Mr Morgan-Owen harp solo.
