Ammanford Police Court. I Monday. December 23rd.—Before Mr. W. Lkwelvn, F airwater (in the chair) Mr. W. Williams, Penygroes; and Mr. Jno. Lewis, Brvn-Rhug. NON-ATTENDANCE AT SCHOOL. I Sarah Jones, of Llandebie, was summoned in respect of the non-attendance of her child at school. The case was adjourned from a previous Court. Defendant appeared in Court, and promised that her child should attend school regularly. Her husband was a member of His Majesty s Forces. The Chairman said that they were taking a lenient view of the case, as the defen- dant's husband was in the Army, and the case would be withdrawn, with the hope that defendant would see that her child attended regularly in the future. Elizabeth Howells, of Llandebie, was pro- ceeded against for a similar offence, and the o g en e case, which had been adjourned from a pre- vious Court, was further adjourned for four weeks. Mr. John Williams, School Attendance Officer, appeared on behalf of the Education Committee. AFFILIATION. I The case of Miss Price, v. Harding Bart- iett, of Garnant, was adjourned for seven days. ASSAULT. I Mrs. Mary Elizabeth Lewis, of 12, Harold Street, Tirydail, sumoned Miss S. A. Rice, also of Harold Street, in respect of an alleged assault. Mr. Samuel Griffith, solicitor, Ammanford, appeared for the defence, and he suggested, as the case was such a trivial one, that efforts should be made to get the parties to settle their dispute. The complainant, on being asked whether she was agreeable to the case being settled if possible, replied that she preferred the case to be proceeded with. The complainant, in evidence, said that on the 12th inst. some dispute arose between defendant's sister-in-law and herself. She (witness J was cumng vegetables in ihv garden, when Wm. John Rice said that she was only giving vegetables to the children. The defendant and her mother interfered, and commenced throwing dirt in her face. She threw dirt back at them. Complainant then went into her house, and about 7 o clock in the evening the defendant came rushing towards her kitchen door with a long instru- ment in her hand. De-fendant struck her a blow on her head, and she became uncon- scious and was attended by Dr. Inman, suffering from a wound on her scalp. Defen- dant said, That's enough for you." She did not have peace to live. May Lewis, complainant's daughter, corro- borated the evidence of her mother. Mr. S. Griffiths then said that the alleged struggle between the parties could be called the pot and hammer encounter. The hammer was a very frank instrument, and"the means of one' s escape from a hammer were many. However, the chances of escape from the pots were very slight, especially the con- tents. The defence was a total denial. The case should never have come before the Court. It was a flimsy and trivial prosecution. Sarah Ann Rice, the defendant, corro- berated her solicitor's statement. Sarah Rice, the mother of the defendant, also gave evidence for the defence. Mrs. Spencer, 14, Harold Street, also gave evidence. The Chairman said that the case had been carefully considered by them, and they had decided to dismiss the case. It was a pity that the case was brought before the Court.
MEMORIAL HALL FOR CWMAMMAN I To the Editor, Amman Valley Chronicle. I Sir,—A letter appeared in your most valu- able paper a few weeks ago from Mr. W. A Hay, secretary of the Cwmamman Sol- diers' and Sailors' Fund, urging the building of a Memorial Hall and Baths in memory of our fallen heroes in the world's most terrible war. I must say I fully appreciate his scheme in every way, and hope to see very shortly a public meeting called to go into the matter and bring it to a successful is6ue. If ever a Public Hall was needed in our midst, it was during election week. I am sure places of worship are not built for the purpose of hold- ing election meetings, where people congre- gate to criticise one another, &c., and where even falsehoods are uttered, of each other by those who address these meetings, simply that their particular candidate should win. Surely, God's House should, and must, be used for the good work it is intended for. Some people nevet see the inside of a place of wor- ship except on such occasions as this; Sun- days are spent in the house, when they could go to hear the Word of God. Now, as regards the Baths. Most of us read in Mr. Lloyd George' s speech not many weeks ago of the bad physical state of our male population; also the declining and un- healthy race we are. Now, it is up to us AS fathers and mothers to see that our children grow up strong and healthy, and worthy to be called Britishers." Swimming is the finest exercise we could let them have, as it exercises every muscle in the body, and so it develops, as it is intended to but J don't mean swimming in the polluted and dirty River Amman, as it is to-day poisoned by the filth from the works, &c. Now, rate- payers of Gamant and Glanamman, let us .vake up to the fact that we are in want of a good Public Hall and Baths. Do not let this opportunity slip away; now is the time. Let us not forget OUT fallen heroes.- Yours, &c., I AMMANITE.

lFOOTBALL TOPICS. AMMANFORD v. AMMAN UNITED. I -1 11 Ammanford were opposed on. baturday last by Amman United on the Cross Inn Field, ,and were defeated by six points. However, although the United were a superior lot, the homesters played a good game. The visitors were excellently served by their forwards, who were considerably heavier than the home eight, and as a result the United's half-backs were given greater opportunities of demon- strating their ability, which they did to good effect. The United's three-quarters were a fine combination, and some excellent football was displayed by them. Owing to the sodden condition of the ground, and also the heavier forwards of the United, the local boys were fagged before the end of the game. W. Rees scored a good try for the visitors in the first half, which was not converted. In the second half, the homesters displayed some classy football, and at times had the best of matters. However, the question of weight had told its tale, and it was evident that they were opposed by a superior team. The United's forwards hee'ed the .bail with unfailing regularity, and the home backs were n.t given an opportunity to shine. Owing to the greasy state of the ball, the home full- back failed to hold, and the United, who were always on the alert, took advantage of th -j slip and got possession of the bail in mid- field, and W. I'horn- romped over with a clever try, which remained unconverted The result-Amman United, two tries; Ammanford, nil-is a fair indication of the merits of the respective teams. Roger Jones, who played on the wing for Ammanford, deserves special mention. He played an ex- ceedingly good game.
