I [ MINERS AND DEMOBILI- I i ISATION. A t a meeting of the Rhymney J j Valley District of the South Wales Miners' Federation on Saturday, Mr Albert Thomas, J.P., agent and secre- tary, explained fully the arrangements mad e for the purpose of finding work at. the collieries for colliery workers returning from the army. There were several complicated problems, says the official report, that would have to be dealt with, in the foremost of which was the need of opening up under- groaud workings. Another problem I referred to the colliery worker who joined the army in 1914. When it came to the question as to who should look for work "elsewhere," the col- liery worker who joined the army in 1914, or the man who came to the colliery since 1914, they had no hesitation in saying that if it came to ¡ a choice the man who entered the colliery since 1914 was the man who should seek work elsewhere. It was resolved to call' a special meeting I during the month with delegates specially instructed by the lodges ou (1), problems of demobilisation (2), the question' of excessive overtime workvd (3), the question of new seams being opened upon terms that the workmen's organisation was not a party to. In onr opinion," added the report, 14 the only pafe term on which men should work, pending the peri d ii g the suttlecnont of piece work rates iu new seitm*, is a day wage-rate and rlo men shoald start on their seams except on divy w&Kr-r2l.tes." ¡

I I How Saving helps TO LOWER PRICES WHEN everybody wants to buy, prices are sure to go up. That is common sense, is it not ? And it is equally true that when people are more anxious to I save than to spend, the prices of many things will have to come down. Clothes—furniture—travel—rent—those and hun- dreds of other things are dear enough as it is. But think how much higher the prices might have risen if millions of pounds had not been saved and invested in War Savings Certificates. Every shilling lent to the country in this way helps to keep prices down.
