I COWBRIDGE SIFTINGS. I I (by Velox.) I News readies us that more of our boys are ¡ '-oing through it"; aye, and going through ,ji'av":y, that we "old crocks" (and others .who ire not old crock.) may live in safety and com- fort at home. Pte. Willie Evans has been .vour.ded in Palestine, but we are glad to hear s doing well. He is the- youngest &on of Mr. W. I avails, of Eastgate Street, Cowbridge, and son- in-law of Mr. J. Whitney, Mount Pleasant Farm. Cpl. Pell has also been wounded. How we think of the old days in Cowbridge when he was "pro" for the Cowbridge Cricket Club! and one of his most promising pupils has also been hit, Pte. Jack Bishop, for the second time (son of Mr. Bishop, Westgate Street, who has Another son still fighting). Last December, Mrs. Williams, of Miskin Manor, oiiered prizes for the best essays on "Loyalty," by boys and girls at Cowbridge Council School. The prizes were presented on Wednesday of last week by Mrs. Franklen—the first prize to Percy Ralls, second to Halcot Roberts, and third divided between Florrie Goalden and Ernie Lane. Mrs. Franklen, in making the presentations, remarkeod that the work had been very well done. Alderman Ed. John and Mr. E. W. Miles, two of the local Managers, were also present, and addressed the children. a • • • Cowbridge Fire Brigade will not again be called to Llanblethian, should a fire OCCUT. When Sir Edward is home, he will extinguish it free of ckarge. We are pleased to know that the several War Savings Associations of Cowbridge and District are doing well. Perhaps when we are able to give a few figures, those who are indifferent now, will realise how much can be done when there io a will to do it. On Friday last a concert was given at the High School for Girls in aid of St. Dunstan's Institute for Blind Soldiers. The large audi- ence was delighted with the girls' dancing, from the stately Minuet to the uprightly Scotch Reel and the gay Gipsy Dance of one of the yout pupils. The chief items were the "Trial Scene" from The Merchant of Venice," and a farce, "Ici on Parle Francais," and it would be hard to say which was most successful. The difficult roles of Portia, Shylock, and Antons were especi- ally well interpreted by the members of Form IV. The lighter characters in the farce were equally well filed by members of Form V., the acting of "Mr. Spriggins" giving unbounded delight "0 the patients of Ash Hall and Beaupre Red Cross Hospitals—the guests of the afternoon. The girls had aimed at securing the sum of < £ 5, and were highly delighted to find that the proceeds amounted to nearly .£17, in- cluding a cheque from Mrs. Homfray, of Pen- llyne Castle, one cf the Governors of the School.
