Y.iT RADGYNLAi S WORKMEN DliMA^D ttVMOM SCHEME. Grocers and We:kJy Whole Holiday. i'rai.e tor Executive Food Oiticer. The workmen employed at ti- various local l'ollieri( have taken uip the matter of the provision of food for the district, and a serie-s of meeting have been held at the Ystradgynla>8 Institute during the earlier part of the week. Mr. Lewis Thomas has taken the chair at these meetings, and 0-11 Monday tho hall was crowded. A pro- longed discussion took place on the proposed rationing scheme, and it was decided to send a deputation to the Food Control Committee sitting that. day at Ystradgynlais, with a view to pressing forward a rationing schcnK., and also for the purpose of obtaining an explanation on the question of th: election of Úø executive officer. \Vheu the deputation returned Councillors Ben Williams and David Lewis accom- panied them to explain the position. Councillor Ben Williains gave a de- tailed account of what had been don;" in regard to the rationing scheme, an said they now had a butter and mar- gariue scheme under consideration, which they hoped to bring into opera- tion at an early date. He pointed ou, the difficulty in having a central dump for such a large area, and said that three dumps at Ystradgynlais, Aber- crave, and Cwmtwrch would be triec. Mr. Williams vindicated the action of the committee in appointing MJ. Tavlor as food executive officer, and said he was at present ill, and he (Mr. Williams) was doing the work to? c few davs. He admitted that th'" ap- pointment was not a dcmocntic one, but Mr. Tavlor was not to blame for that. He bad only been appointed t-!) deal with the sugar scheme, and thav had now developed into a very large undertaking. They had had trouble i;] the district as to the place of reaidenf of their educational staff, but h. thought a man should live where he chose. Mr. Dd. Lewis said he could not se-r his way clear to ask Mr. Taylor ton resign. < It was decided to adjourn the meet- ing, and it was also resolved that the Food Committee be asked to fix the wholesale and. retail prices of milk. LOCAL GROCERS DECIDE UPON EQUITABLE DISTRIBUTION. A meeting of the grocers in uv Ystradgynlais area waa held at Ystrad- gynlais on Thursday, when Mr. Tom W illiams, Cynlajs Stores, presided over a good attendance. It was resolved that the grocery establishments in tho district should in future close for the whole of Thursday; and it was decided that every grocer should make an ef- fort to distribute equitably the avail- able food supplies, taking into ooJt- sicteration the size of the cliffereni, families of their customers. The sugar ticket system was suggested as a work- ing basis. In view of the untiring energy of the secretary, Mr. D. J. Jenkins, Col- leoe-J-ow, and of his excellent serviees for many years, it was decided to pre- sent him with a beautiful self-filling fountain pen. The following resolution was also passed: "We desire to place on record our high appreciation of the splendid services rendered by Mr. Victor Taylor as food executive officer. The proIDp manner in which ho has supplied u*. with various trade forms and the cour- teous assistance which he haa always given, havo, we feel sure, done muck to overcome our difficulties, and at tho same time to secure for the district J. very share of the constantly diminish- ing supplies." A similar resolution was passed by the members of the Co-operative Society on Tuesday evening. At a meeting of the Ystradgynlais Food Control Committee on Monday, it was decided to prepare three dumps in the district as centres from which the available food supplies could be distributed.
