AMMANFORD. The local football team journey to Tumble on Saturday next, and a keen game is anti- cipated. It is expected that Ammanford will turn out the same team as that which did so well against Gowerton in their last match. Mary Whidley, of Maesquarre Road, Bettws, received shocking injuries to the scalp whilst engaged at the local brickworks on Tuesday. She is about 19 years of age, and resides with her parents at the above address. We gather that her condition is favourable. A number of the local supporters of Rugby witnessed the game, Llanelly v. New Zealand, played on the former's ground on Saturday last. On the return journey the motor-car conveying one of the parties broke down, with the result that they had to return to Ammanford on Shanks' Pony. Master Horatio Jenkins, Hall Street, has been informed that he has passed his A.C.V. examination with honours, obtained second place in the United Kingdom, and will be awarded the bronze medal of the. College of Violinists. Master Horatio is only 15 years of age, and his latest success is regarded as one of the most remarkable. At the Palace Theatre, last n-ight, the Church United Band of Hope performed the operetta, Princess Chrysanthemum." The event was a great success. The chair was taken c by Dr. D. R. Price, The Laurels, the conductor being the Rev. D. Spenser Jones, B.A. The proceeds were in aid of the Church Debt. A full report will appear in our next issue. A repeat performance will be -given on either February 1 Sth or 19th. On Thursday evening last, the Ammanford Shop Assistants' Union held a whis: drive and social. The event, which was held at the Y.M.C.A., was very largely attended by the young people. The M.C. for the whist drive was Mr. Rhys Owens, Glanamman. The prie-winners were:—Ladies, Miss Steele, of the Pantyffynnon Colliery Offices; and Mr. Arthur Morgan, Tirydail and Booby, Booby, Miss Trevor, London House. Gents, Mr. W. James. Ty'rychen Farm was the scene of another accident on Monday evening last. A motor- car driven by Mr. David Lewis, of Ponty- berem, and containing passengers, collided with a trap which was driven by Mrs..Wil- liams, of Thornhill, near Gorslas. The horse bolted, and fell about a hundred yards away. The car run into the left hedge, the occu- pants escaping with shock. Mrs. Williams received injuries to her wrist, and a little child, five years of age, sustained injuries to the leg. Last Saturday night, the Rev. D. Tegfan Davies, Christian Temple, delivered his ex- cellent lecture, entitled Allwedd Fach y Porth Mawr," to a crowded house at Nebo, Heolddu. He dealt with his usual insight and eloquence with burning questions -of the day. He argued by picture, and convinced with his array of facts. The appreciative audience was thrilled and charmed throughout the evening. Mr. David Thomas, Abercefni, presided in an able manner. Messrs. E. Jones, Cefncefni, and P. Roberts, Cwm- amman, also paid a glowing tribute to the lecturer. The proceeds were for the local Sailors' and Soldiers' Reception Fund. Last Thursday evening, at Ebenezer Chapel, a public meeting was held under the auspices of the Free Church Council, when the Revs. W. D. Rowlands and E. Ungoed Thomas, Carmarthen, president and secretary respectively of the West Wales Federation of Free Churches, visited the churches. At 6 o' clock they met the Council, and addressed the members on Free Church Council work in general. At 7 o'clock the reverend gentlemen spoke respectively on The Churches and after-the- W ar Problems and Temperance Work." The addresses were very much to the point and practical, and delivered with conviction. The vice-chairman of the Coun- cil, Rev. B. Ellis Jones, B.A., occupied the chair. The opening prayer was offered by the Rev. J. Meirion Williams. At the close the cordial thanks of the meeting were .accorded the speakers, on the initiative of the Revs. D. E. Harris and W. Richard.
