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.
