I ABERCRAVE "A ddylai y pwlpud ymwneud a gwleidyddiaeth" (Should the pulpit deal with politics) was the subject for discussion at Bryn Seion on Wednes- day evening. There was a fair attend- ance, over which the Rev. L. Lloyd presided. Mr. Dd. Daniels, Clydwyn House, spoke on the affirmative side and was supported by Mr. T..E Lewis (Tegfryn Tawe), whilst Mr. Phillip J. Evans (Bristol House) argued for the negative. In the absence of Mr. Mor- gan Watkins, Mr. I. Lewis supported the negative. Messrs. J. S. Morgan, D. Rosser Williams, and D. Roderick entered the discussion at the close. On Friday evening at Bryn Seion, Mr. Roland Thomas, M.A., Brecon, delivered an excellent lecture on "Mor- 8m Llwyd o Wynedd." The pastor, t?iv. L. Lloyd, presided. The lecturer in the course of his remarks stated I that although little is know of the early life of Morgan Llwyd, the latter period is full of interesting facts. Liv- ing at the time of the great civil war in the reign of Charles I., this not- able character struggled bravely for the principles of Nonconformity. Two of his books, "Llyfr y tri aderyn" and "Y Bardd Cwsg" are well known. I All the schools of the district were re-opened on Tuesday after the Xmas vacation. The attendance in some of them is still rather poor, as all the patients suffering from fever have not sufficiently recovered. After a short but severe attack of pneumonia, the death took place on Monday evening of Mr. John Walters, Penrhos, at the age of 61. Deceased ? was very well-known in the district as he lived for many years at Llundain Fach, Caerlan. He leaves a widow and four grown-up children to mourn their I loss. I On Sunday at the various places of j worship intercession services were held during the day. Special prayer meet- ings were also held at all the chapels on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings. j AVe are glad to learn news from the lads at the front assuring us of their safety and are jogging along with their hard work. Pte. W. Hoskins, S.W.B., returned to hospital on Monday for further treatment to his wounded leg. The funeral of Tom, the 13-year-old son of Mr and Mrs. Wm. Price, for- merly of Gwerntybach, Abercrave, rtook place on Thursday last at Macs- teir.- The deceased Lad, who now resid- ed with his parents at Maes-tag, passed awav on the previous Monday.
