A DANGEROUS WALL A letter was read from Mrs Evan Davies, Cartref Dedwydd. calling the attention of the Council to the road leading to Cellfechan Farm, which was at the back of her property It was very unsafe to live in the housç, as there were big stones rolling down from near the gate. She understood that this road belonged to the Council, and it would safeguard the Council and pedestrians if they would build a wall there. Mr Rees Jones said the place was dangerous, especially to young children. Mr Rhys Jones agreed, and added tnat he had drawn attention to the matter months ago. Mr Robert Lloyd Williams proposed that the whole Council should inspect the place and decide on the spot what to do. I Mr Rhys Jones seconded, which was carried unanimously. CELLFECHAN FARM. The Chairman explained that the Council bad offered the above farm to Mr Humphrey Williams, the present j tenant, but a letter was read at the last meeting from him stating that he objec- ted.to a certain clause in the agreement. The Council bad decided to invite Mr Williams to meet them and discussxthe matter further. ,The Deputy Clerk reported that a letter had been sent Mr Williams on Wednesday, but he understood that there was no delivery of letters daily to Cellfecban, and therefore Mr Williams could not have bad the letter sent to "¡ him, and, no doubt, that was the reason why he bad not attended that evening. Mr J. Llewelyn Davies said perhaps Mr Robert Lloyd Williams could give the Council some information on the matter. Mr Robert Lloyd Williams said Mr Humphrey Williams bad been talking to him over the matter and had told him his position, but it was only in a verbal way, Mr Humphrey Williams had explained his position to him, and if the Council would like, he would give a Varbal report. Dr. J. Pugh Jones said it was not right to take a verbal report. Mr Robert Lloyd Williams said it was nothing to him. He did not want to give the report at all.. Mr J. Llewelyn Davies-Did be say that be bad received the Council's last letter. i Mr Robert Lloyd Williams—No. But be said that be would not meet the Council. Mr Rees Jones said if that was the case, could not Mr Robert LI. Williams give the verbal report he bad with Mr Humphrey Williams to the Council. Mr Rhys Jones said that the Chair- man had already refused to take a verbal report. The Chairman said that was right. The Council could not stand by having verbal reports. They should be in writing or in person. It was decided that the Council should meet Mr Humphrey Williams on Monday if the Chairman thought that would be advisable and agreeable to Mr Humphrey Williams.

Barmouth Man Wins £50 Prize.— The South Coast Land and Resorts Co., London, offered valuable prices for the naming of a seaside resort on their new South Coast Estate.

We are glad to understand that our esteemed townsman, Mr John Griffith, proprietor of the Panorama Waterworks, succeeded in winning one of the consolation prizes out of many thousands of names sent in. The name of ,the new resort sent in by Mr Griffiths was "New Anzac," whilst the first prizes had" New Anzac-on- Sen." The plot of land won by Mr Griffiths is 2,500 feet, and ready for building purposes. The estate is only 6 miles from Brighton and 2 miles from New. haven. Important to Welshmen Joining the Army.—Many Welshmen in the Groups already called up have found consider- able difficuly in being attached to Welsh Units. That this difficulty is not insurmountable is proved by the fact that a deputation of Liverpool Welsh- men on Friday visited the Military Authorities in London and succeeded in securing permission for all the Welsh recruits from Liverpool to join the Welsh Battalions. The zeal of Liver- pool Welshmen in this connection is worthy of general emulation. General Owen Thomas desires once more to im- press upon young Welshmen who wish the join the Welah Army the supreme importance of joining at once before their Groups are called itp. This is the only certain method of being allowed to join the Welsh Unit of their ohoice. If they wait until their Groups are called up. they may, and probably will, be forced to join the Units chosen by the Authorities and not by themselves. The newly formed "Gwynedd" Battalion (22nd R.W.F.), commanded by Colonel Lloyd Evans, himself a Welsh speaking Welshman, and the officers and men of which will be almorit entirely Welsh speaking affords a suit- able opportunity for young Welshmen to join a Unit where they will find themselves in congenial company.
