Ammanford DischarpdfMen. I At a meeting of the Ammanford Branch of the Discharged Sailors' and Soldiers' Federation, held at the Ivorites' Hall on Monday evening, Mr. W. H. Crowe, Lucania Build- ings, presiding, the Secretary reported upon the result of an interview he had with Mr. J. W. Bishop, the agent to the Dynevor Estate, on Monday after- noon. The Secretary assured the meet- ing that Lord Dynevor was entirely in sympathy with the discharged men, and would be prepared to grant the use of a piece of ground for the erection of a hut. The ground could be most cen- trally situate, and Mr. Bishop would meet a further deputation of the dis- charged men to select a site. Mr. F. Dawson said that it was up to the discharged men of Ammanford to co-operate in the project. If the several local influential gentlemen were approached on the matter, there would be little difficulty in acquiring a hut. Mr. Evan Lewis, Union Street, sug- gested that the Committee immediately proceed with the scheme. Several of the members concurred, and it was eventually agreed that the matter be proceeded with forthwith. RE-UNION DINNER, &c. The Secretary reported that nothing further had become of the proposed re- union of the local discharged men. He was now waiting for a move to be made by the local Peace Celebrations Com- mittee. Surely, they did not expect the discharged men to organise a function on their own. The Secretary further referred to the excellent reception accorded the Cwmamman men, in which the Council had co-operated. Mr. F. Dawson undertook to see the Chairman of the Council on the sub- ject. AN APPEAL. The Secretary was directed to issue an appeal to all discharged men, through the Press and by the circulation of a poster, announcing the intention of the Committee to deal only with the paid-up members of the Federation in cases where financial or other assist- ance is sought. During the past few months, the drain upon the funds has been immense, and it has been the practice for many to join the ranks on one particular evening, and then to place before the Committee their griev- ances on the next. This is considered unfair to those loyalists who recognise their obligations to the cause. Again, mention can be made of a few cases where a substantial sum has been allocated to. them to tide matters over. Even when these men regain their posi- tion, they forget the little yellow card, and by so doing forget the other discharged comrade who is down at heels. FORTHCOMING EVENTS. The Secretary announced that a dance would be held under the aus- pices of the Federation in about a month's time; also, a dramfai would be performed at the Palace Theatre, the proceeds of which would be devoted to the local Branch, on December 17th. It is also proposed to run a drawing" in support of the Soccer Club now being run under the auspices of the Branch.
Benefit Concert at Ammanford
Benefit Concert at Ammanford A benefit concert was held at the Paflace Theatre, on Monday evening, under the presidency of Mr. David George, Bettws. The spacious build- ing was packed to its utmost capacity, and quite a substantial sum was realised. The recipient is a widow, and mother of one of the lads who laid down his life out yonder." The artistes included the select of the district, and their services were given gratis. The committee is to be com- plimented on presenting so excellent a programme. The whole audience ap- preciated the musical efforts presented bv local talent. Mr. Jactc Pleasant Williams maintained his standard of par excellence, and was repeatedly en- coerd. The gifted Bettws violinist, Mr. T. T. Bowen, also received a grand reception. The renowned elocu- tionist, 1\1T:lr"'111 Maude Evam-Vaughan (Llanferch), did her share: also Madam Pryce Tones as soprano. Miss B'-onwen Thomas, as the alto, conveyed a.n impression on tHe vast 3pd appreciative audience. Her solo, Fr;-nd, U was well received. Mr. To-,rnv Walters, another of gen i u 3ettws% musical geniuses, contributed f several interesting tenor solos. Credt is also due to the Bettws M;¡Ie Vo;ce Partv, under the baton of Mr. John Williams, who rendered a e lee, en- titled 10 Away to the Forest." and "In h- r—^v-and-bye." The usual lotes Ot ujdnks were accorded at the lose.

The Housing Problem.
The Housing Problem. The Ministry of Health announce:— The Ministry of Health have had under consideration every method which might be taken to secure the early pro- vision of houses in places where, though the immediate need is acute, the houses in course of erection by the Local Authority are not likely to be imme- diately ready for occupation in suffi- cient numbers. Among the expedients which the Ministry think might use- fully be adopted to meet the situation is one furnished by a clause in the Housing Act of 1919, to which suffi- cient public attention has not perhaps been directed. It is the clause under which the Local Authority may buy or may lease houses which are suitable for the work- ing classes, and which are either in course of erection or are about to be erected at the hands of a private builder. The clause is one which might give a useful oppoprtunity to a small builder who, while he is unable to tender for a big scheme, might yet be in a position to erect three or four cottages. Such builders, or builders in a larger way who have resources in men and material which they can spare from their main engagements, would do well to get into communication with their Local Authority and to submit pro- posals. The contract between the builder and the Local Authority would require te approval of the Ministry of Health. It is not proposed that houses built in this way should be in any way inferior tc the houses built by the Local Autho- rity, but it is possible that more latitude might be allowed to the builder in such matters as material and fitments than is possible when the whole of the con- struction is governed by detailed speci- fication. The builder will also have the advantage of obtaining his material from the Director of Building Material Supplies at the usual discount.

Weekly Film Notes._1
Weekly Film Notes. 1 Constance Binney, the famous American actress, who is to be one of the Realart film stars, has had a meteoric screen career. Her first pic- ture appearance was in Maurice Toumeur' s Sporting Life," and she afterwards supported John Barrymore in The Test of Honour. She sprang into instant fame through her fine work in 39 East," a recent stage production in which she is now playing at the Broadway Theatre, New York, and will shortly be playing leading roles in pictures of the highest artistic merit. Six years ago Wallace Reid, who has recently signed a five-year contract to star in pictures for the Famous Players-Lasky Company, was acting in films for a salary of 125 a week. In 1915 he signed a two years' contract with Famous Players-Lasky, and in 1917 it was renewed for a further two years, each time at a largely increased salary. His present contract is on a sliding scale, and. while his salary is now well over f-200 a week, in the fifth year he will be the highest paid male star in the picture world. William Desmond Taylor, who. after serving as a Captain in the British Army until a few months ago, has now returned to the States and film pro- ducing, is responsible for an innovation in photoolay technique. In producing Mary Miles Minter in her first Realart picture, he rehearsed for three days without a single shot being taken. This is contrary to the usual practice, for the scenes are generally run through once or twice and then taken. Mr. Taylor has. previous to joining the Army, been responsible for many fine pictures, including several Marv Pick- ford films, the most recent of which was Johanna Enlists," which is now being shown in this country. It is doubtful if many of the leading film actors can equal Wallace Mac- Donld' s record for having played oppo- site so many different fair film favourites, for Wallace has been lead- ing man to Pauline Frederick, Mary Miles Minter, Mae Marsh, and Madge Kennedy, and has now been engaged by Famous-Players Lasky to support Marguerite Clark in one of her latest pictures. Cecil B. DeMille is now actively engaged on the production of Every- woman for the screen. Violet Heming plays the title role, with Theodore Roberts as Wealth," Wanda Hawley as Beauty," Mil- dred Reardon as Conscience," Bebe Daniels as Vice," Mary Mclver as Youth," Margaret Loomis as Modesty," Irving Cummings as Passion," Raymond Hatton as Flattery, and Noah Beery as Bluff." Elliot Dexter, the well-known film actor, who has been seriously 11 for many months, is now reported to be on the road to recovery, though at one time his life was despaired of for nearly a fortnight. For several years his work has been in such great demand that he had played unceasingly without allow- ing himself any rest. He is an ex- tremely conscientious worker, and in every role he played he gave himself wholly to it, with the result that his strength was gradually broken down. During the filming of The Woman Thou Gavest Me," the Paramount- Artcraft picture whch Hugh Ford has produced from Sir Hall Caine's famous novel, there was erected a reproduction of a Norman Cathedral for the taking of the wedding scenes. A large num- ber of extras were used to make up the congregation, and just as Mary MacAllister, in the person of Katherine MacDonald, and Lord Raa, repre- sented by Jack Holt, were about to be married, Hugh Ford noticed that one of the congregation was asleep. The taking was stopped while the offender was aroused, and he after- wards naively explained that he always fell asleep in church, and that the imitation 11 was such a good one that he succumbed to his habit!

Our Poultry Column.
Our Poultry Column. I FINISHING POINTS. Everyone who goes in for showing poultry must realise that you cannot pick a bird straight off the run and expect it to win prizes. There must be some kind of preparation, and the man who can get his bird into best condition stands the best chance; for no matter how good the quality tnay be, if it is not shown well, the judge cannot put it at the top. Training the bird so that it will keep when being looked at is one way; handling is another, because oftentimes the judge is bound to have the bird out to see the good points, and a bird wild and rough will not show off properly. Then, washing is necessary to have the plumage at its best and to take all the dirt off, and while last week I mentioned the tub, the question of drying is important if the fowl is to look well. After being properly soaked and washed, just lift the bird out on to a table or sink, and press all the water you can out of the feathers, then with a towel wiping the same way as they grow, just take off as much more water as possible, after which it is ready for drying. A good fire will be needed to make the bird warm at the first, th,r 1 it will s-on dry up and web out; thou> dr, not get near enough to scoic H .1. feathers, or you make it brittle and 1, I colour. Any ordinary box two fffit.1 square wn! do for the drying bo- ?l' if placed near the fire the heat wi;'| sort of collect inside, so that the bird) is warmed from all round. The adva tage of a machine where the heat comas from underneath can be seen c- t! on, it ensures the level drying and becomes I done much quicker. But the r*rna.l: has probably only the fire in the house, j hence he must make the best of it; and some &ne birds have resulted. It is ?surprising what difficulties can be oYa come when a man has made up his mind to succeed, and the work of wash- ing and drying can be met. The box should have some chaff on the floor, and if the bird is washed anywhere near mid-day, it might be arranged to let the box stop near the fire all the evening unless dried out quicker; then it can cool down as the fire goes out. Care must be tak en when the bird is diying not to give It any sudden changes for fear of colds, so that the changes must be gradual. The man who has a properly fitted room or drying machine can soon get through the work, but these things cost money, and a new beginner cannot waste anything until he sees clearly what he can do. Many scores of birds have been washed in, the house and dried before the fire with satisfactory results, and there is no reason why it should not be done again. The feathers will take a few days to come out properly, so don't leave it till the day before the show, but get it done and keep the bird on plenty of chaff and a perch If possible in the coop, so that it will keep clean for a few days quite easily. You can- not do much now to the plumage' except to rub it gently with an old silk hand- kerchief, which will keep off all dust and bring back the bloom the bird had before wasting.. The next thing will I be to wash the head and wattles, which is easy with a sponge and soap, though a lways rinse it with clean water and dry with a towel, otherwise in cold weather the comb might become rhapped or even frost-bitten. When ""ite dry rub in a little plain oil, then before leaving it wipe all off, o to prevent any dust adhering to it, vMch would soon -poil looks. The nc ;t thing will be the legs, and they mr-t be scrubbed clean if noeessary vnth warm water and brush, but this -H not clean under the scales. This mvst be cleaned with a pointed match -I piece of wood, but mind not to force it up too far, otherwise it will make it bleed. Though rather a long job, it pays for all the trouble, and this is a work which can be started a month before the show. Rub a little vaseline on the legs, and with a soft cloth a nice polish can soon be had, which will all add to its beauty.

The contributions on that little card have helped many a poor desolate and lonely soldier. It has assisted and pro- vided strength to right the wronged. Very often we forget it, and more so we fail to recognise our debt of honour to our pal. We have often noticed, comrades, those dear little children playing in the street. They are too young to realise the circumstances under which their dad paid the supreme sacrifice. Have we ever thought of these little ones' future? We do not realise that there is a duty to perform. It may be a little, but it all helps. I even to-day know of men who have been honourably dealt with by our Federation. They have forgotten it. It was not confined to charity. It was the result of the glorious work now carried on by our Federation. Just come along and assist us in our work. We only ask for co-operation. That is not much, but really it is a lot, for in Unity there is Strength." On Monday last, I had the pleasure of an interview with Mr. J. Walton Bishop, the agent to the Dynevor Estate. He assured me of the valu- able assistance of Lord Dynevor in pro- curing the realisation of our ambitions. Major Bishop has himself served during the Great War, and is now an active worker in the Burry Port Branch of our Federation. He explained to me the difficulties met with by the Burry Port Branch. They, too, are endeavouring to purchase an Army Hut, to be used f »f j recreation of the men. Could we but get one for Ammanford. the rest is assured.
