VISIT OF THE FORTHCOMING "ALL-WELSH" CONCERT COMPANY TO BARMOUTH. Everyone, from the richest to the poorest, is subscribing so splendidly to the numerous charities arising each day out of conditions brought about by this tsrribie war, that it is with some .diffidence that we venture to make a new-and urgent— appeal to our readers to subscribe yet further by purchasing tickets for the concert to be held at the Barmoutb Pavilion on Friday week. There are many potent reasons why €ven those of us who have already given €ven beyond our means should make a yet further effort with regard to this concert. We will not remind our readers of what is to-day everywhere quoted: Our soldiers are doing so much for us* can we do too much for them ? The answer to that question, we are assured, would be answered in the negative by every Barmoutbian to'day. Of all war charities which are among the most deserv#g ? Sure!y, in every- one's mind is the splendid Red Crosb Institution, which has as its special object the aHeviation of the suffering of our wounded and dying heroes, and which has already done such magnincent work. We cannot add one iota to the coursge, self-abnegation, or heroism of our Red Cross workers—that would be impossible, but we can add to 'the ever- necessary funds that enable them to carry on their work. It is for money to swell these funds that this concert is being arranged. That in itself is, we trust, a suiBcient appeal to every man and woman in this town to support this concert. It is just possible tb3,t sundry people might argue that they would rather tender a subscription to the Head- quarters of the Red Cross lostitution than buy tickets for a concert which they fear they couid not enjoy. To them no refutable argument could be advanced if the concert artistes were peopte of much !audab)c enthusiasm, but of iittte artistic or musicul talent. But tbnt is far from being the case here, and we can assure our readers that, if they attend this concert, not only wii! they have subscribed to the Red Cross tuuds but they wi!! atso have delighted in a musical treat such as they would seldom have the privilege of enjoying. Love of mupio is inherent in every Ce!t, and especially in the people of Hen Walia Wen." Let the people of Bar- moutb go to this concert, and they will bear the most perfect renderings of beautiful music interpreted by six iut'ietes, id) of whom are Welsh people, both by it.bpriLanceand hytemperament. Pumariiy there is Miss Laura Evans- WiJlialYls, the Weisb soprano, who late- ly delightpd huge audiences at the Haymarkct Theatre. Famous, too is Miss Winifred Lewis, the exquisite contralto, whose voice is of wonderful range, and whose iow notes are of organ-like quality. ¡ Mr David Etiis, the eminent tenor, has been accounted the greatest succes of several National Eisteddfod Concerts. That in itself is sumcient to recom- mend him to We!sbpeopte Mr David BrazeU is a baritone of remarkable talent who has de'ighted the most critical audiences in London and in America. ) Miss Marian Jay is a veritable vioiin j wizard/who piays in such a manner as to arouse emotion and the feeling in the least musicat auditor. A few months ago the leading London papers bad much favourable comment to make on the brilliant young pianist, Miss Auriol Jones. The Daily Telegraph a little white ago, in a long critique of Miss Jones's executive powers, stated that one could but raise one's bat to so marvellous a young pianiste.
SCOUTS' CORNER. Mr Editor—wi!! you ai!ow me—a Boy Scout, a iittie bit of your corner this week, for I want to say what a jolly time we bad on Friday last. At lO.SO we assembled in the Scboo: Yard. twenty-seven in number. While we were preparing to start for our day's outing, a very nice iady came to talk to us. She said she was a Scouts Master, near Wrexbam. She toid us some very j amusing and interesting stories about her Boy Scouts, and gave an account of how they got money tor their Camp Fund. Oae way was by collecting bottles. She said that within three years her Boys bad got a very large sum. We are going to make arrangements to col- lect bottfes, and we feei sure the lodgingbouse peopte wi!l help us, for we I want to have a week's camping during the summer hoiida.ys. Our Secretary, Mr Jones,The Library, told us that the Committee were arrang- ing a meeting for us to ce!obrate Empire Day" and that be would give a prize of 2/G for the best account of that day's outing; but Miss Hugbes, the Lady Scout Master, said she would give the prize and adjudicate the papers. She aiss said she would give a nice book "Scouting for Boys" to the best be- haved boy that day. Our Scout Master (Mr D. R. Williams) ¡ took us as far as Dyffryn and we en- joyed ourselves very much. One or two boys did not behave as well as the rest, but gave some trouble to our Scout Master who was doing so much for us. All the rest of us were very angry with them, and if they disobey another time, we hope they will not be -illowed to go for the rambles. When we returned home we all agreed tba.1 the best behaved boy during the day was lorwertb Ricbarda, G, Marine Parade, so the Patro! Leader took him to see Miss Hughes who presented him with the prize and praised him for his I good conduct. Wo feel very much obliged to the Scout Master and every- body who helped to give us the outiag and we hope to bace another soon. J SCOUT. I
