This query was put last Thursday by Councillor Rd. Jenkins, who observed that they had refused permission to rail wayman attending in their Sunday clothes, and yet he saw that the footballeis were advertised to hold a meeting in that room. He moved that they stick to the resolution passed. It was no use passing a resolu- tion at one meeting and undoing it at the next. The Mayor (Dr. Thomas) did not think such a resolution had been passed, but it was more of an expression of opinion that the room should not be used except by the Town Council and.fhe Council.—Councillor Jenkins You will find, si that I am correct.—The Mayor I amafraid you are mistaken. Councillor Jenkins: Perhaps you will look at the minutes again, and you will once more find you are wrong (smiles).—Mr Wm.

Mr Rowdier was also of opinion that no father ought to nut any obstacle in the way of a boy joining as they were often better looked after +S!r, hv their own parents, and, if he had his time tlr Je&iv he woild have another go.

After a good feed we can do something! Thus spoke a St. John's Ambulance enthusiast, who had climbed the Golfa last Thursday after an 'appetizing tea in Mrs Gittins' orchard. It was a picnic attended by the men and women who have been receiving tuition in first-aid and nursing from Dr. G. A. Skinner. Friends brought the total attendance up to about 100. Near the mountain top the pleasure seekers had a pro- gramme that was of a more serious character than is generally the case at Golfa picnics. For instance, the holders of the Cambrian Railways' Ambulance Shield treated a case of supposed fracture of the spine, and afterwards the Mayor of Welshpool (Dr. Richard Thomas) adjudicated upon three competitions as follows Triangular bandaging by ladies holding first aid certificates, 1 Miss Ida Sw*n, 2 Miss Flossie Pugh, 3 Miss Parry, Heldre; triangular bandaging by men holding first aid certificates, 1 Mr Rex Manford, 2 Mr R. U. Sayee, 3 MrPeter G. Morris; triangular bandaging by holders of medallions, 1 Miss M. Jones, Castle View, 2 Mrs Riciard Evans, Gun- grog-lane, 3 Mrs J. Everall, 4 Mr Gilbert Blockley, 5 P.C. Thomas Jones. The Mayoress distributed the prizes together with the bars and in3dals, the medal- lions and certificates which the members of the various classes had gained. Mrs Thomas also handed a pair of field glasses to Dr. Skinner, who, in thanking the company referred to the local YlDg that Welsh- pool people will take up any new thing with preat enthusiasm for a short time, but scon get tired of it. Dr. Skinner hoped this would not be the case with the First-Aid and Nursing Classes. The Mayoress acknowledged a vote of thanks, which was proposed by Miss Bingham (heac mistress of the County School), and the gathering also gave three cheers for the Mayor.
