Davies, Gwernllwyn, Cross Hands, who, after delivering a neat and appropriate speech, was presented with a beautiful bouquet by Miss Morfudd Jones, Frondeg. Mrs. Davies and Mr. C. E.

The duties as chairman, treasurer, and secretary of the committee were ably dis- charged by Messrs. J. Williams, Wm. Jones, and Tom Thomas respectively.
