CRYNANT. On Sunday last the annual "Cymanfa Ganu Undebol" was held at Salem Chapel. The conductor was Prof. David Evans, Mus. Bac., Cardiff, who, at the evening service expressed how pleased he was to renew his old friendships locally, and to find that the choir had done ex- ceedingly well, taking into consideration that tno programmes had been only pub- lished six weeks. At the children's ser- vice in the morning the Rev. J. Morgan, Bethania, presided. In the afternoon Mr W. Morgan (Ynis- wen), presided, when a paper was read by Air iNuuh Jones on "Ieuan Gwyllt" as a musician. At the evening service Mr D. Jeffrey, A.C., presided over a crowded congregation, when Mr J. E. Jones read a paper on "WiU'ams Pajitycelyn" as a bard. The successful competitors in the competition for composing adults' and children's songs for next year's Cyman- fa were, for adults, Mr D. R. Morgan, and children's, Mr Roderick Evans. The organist and pianist for the occas- ion were Air W. D. Howells and Miss G. Garbett. COMPETITIVE CONCERT A competitive concert was held at Salem Chapel on Monday evening, Mr H. Jeffreys, presiding. Mr D. Pricie and Mr D. Hopkins (Dewi), were adjudicators of music and literature respectfully. The awards were as follows :—Solo for child- ren under 10, Master Tommy Hughes, Ashgrove; recitation for children under 10, Master D. Idris Evans soprano solo, Mrs. W. Donavon, Brynawel; open reci- tation, Miss Dorothy Edwards, Mcesyr- haf. PANCAKE TEA AND ENTERTAIN- MENT On Shrove Tesday a pancake tea was held at the Church schoolroom by the St. Margaret's Church. The following presided at the different tables :—Mrs. Cadogan and Miss Harris; Mrs. Jenkins and Mrs. Jones; Miss E. J. James and Miss Evans; Mrs. P. Davie-i and Mrs. Harris; Misses B. Wines and C. Cadog- an; Mrs. James and Mrs. W. L. Wil- liams. After all had partaken of the good things prepared, aai entertainment was held in the evening, when the hall was crowded. The Rev. D. Morgan occupied the chair, and the following artistes took part :— Pianoforte solo, Miss Gladys Thatchell; songs by Misses S. B. Evans, M. W. Donavon, L. Wince, P. Jones, Sally Lewis, and chorus of Sunday School Scholars recitations by Mss M. Cadogan, Glyn Davies, Johnny Williams, Harold Jenkins, and another. A duett was given by Mifts S. B. Evans and Miss C. Cadog- an; dialogue by Gwennv Rees, V. Sedge- more, S. J. Aplin, S. J. James, B. Jen- kins aaa;.Q. Ca,clogaiLl The arrangements were well carried out by Mr G. Cadogan and Miss M. Harris Wo regret to note that Mr Rhys Jones, the precentor at Godre'rhoe Chapel has been indisposed for the last few weeks, suffering from an attack of severe influ- enza. We trust his recovery will be speedy. At the Assessment Committee held a.t Neath on Thursday, there were only two applicants locally for reduction in the rateable vaJue of the last list. We learn that one of the Parish Councillors was in the fray, and made a. good fight for re- duction. The result of his appeal is not yet to hand. FOOTBALL T The First XV. on Saturday last were entert,-i-iil,-d by Bryncoch in a cup tie match, and resulted in a win for the visitors by 7 points, to 5, but we find that an objection has been lodged by the local committee against the Junior League Neath, and they have docidted to give Crynant the option of a. replay or leave it entirely to the decision of the Neath Junior League. If Crynant Committee care for ad- vice on the point, decide for a replay, as on the run of play last Saturday, the best team lost, through the lucky drop goal of Bryncoch. Our First XV. have qualities that ought to get them the cup this year. ♦
