TOWARDS ORGANISATION. I Preparations for the compilation of the National Register in Breconshire and Radnorshire are being carefully made by the respective local authorities to whom the work has been entrusted by the Local Government Board. The work is to be done by voluntary aid. A number of no- tices, inviting such assistance, appeared in our advertising columns last week, and T J 1 1 1 1 we have every reason to oeneve tnat tne response will be worthy of the patriotic spirit of our people. The importance of the work being well done cannot be too greatly emphasised. It is the first real step towards a much needed national organisa- tion. Although the exigencies of war and the destiny of the nation immediate- ly demand the measure, such organisa- tion will be found of much value when the times of peace return. It will be of infinite importance when the tremendous problems await us in the war's after- math. This being so, special care must be taken in making the record as com- lete and as authentic, as it can well be. There should be little difficulty in this re- speet. Certainly, much depends upon the intelligence and tact of the enumer- ators, and we have no doubt that, in making their selection of persons offer- ing their services, the local authorities will have this in mind. The work is be- ing done voluntarily. There are two im- portant reasons at least for this. First, it will save the country expense at the time when our administrative expendi- ture should be carefully considered, and, secondly, that an opportunity may be given to persons who are anxious to help their country in any work they can do at the present time. The fact that women are included in the Register is a recognition that they can render effective aid to their country in the hour of need. It is exceedingly opportune that local ladies are just now carrying out an im- portant series of patriotic meetings throughout our district. The stirring and earnest addresses of so eloquent a speaker as Mrs Drummond will have effect in pointing out wherein the work of our women folk just now can be of best use. A real opportunity at once offers itself in respect to the National Register. It is, as Miss Philip Morgan pointed out, essentially women's work, in which the womanly virtues of discretion, tact, and courtesy can be so very well displayed. If the work of registration is properly carried out, so that it can be relied up- on as a trustworthy record, it will be of immense value in the classification of labour. At all events, it is a wise stej) towards a real system of organisation, the lack of which has been, and is still being, felt.

Sixty years ago an Archdeacon, BevaH was vicar of St. Peter's, Carmarthen, and.8- stained window to his memory may be found III the church." A more genial and ready-witted chairman than the Rev. Lewis Jones, of Tynvcoed, Abercrave (the retired president of the Welsh Congrega- tional Union) it would be hard to find. His good humour relieved the tedium of business meet' ings, and had the effect of putting everyone pre- sent at ease. The Glamorgan, Breconshire, and Monmouth- shire Vagrancy Committee reported to the Car- diff Guardians on Saturday that, in the past quar- ter, the number of vagrants relieved in the varI- ous unions in the three counties was only 7,868, against 39,065 in the corresponding quarter last year-a decrease of 22,197.

He was made a lance- corporal after leaving Egypt, and his anxiety to be in action was shown by a letter to Mr M?Phr son written on the 3rd of May, and in which b said, 'by the time you receive this we will ha^^ shown the Turks what we are made of."

I On Wednesday afternoon a matinee perform- ance was given at the Grand Pavilion, in aid of the special fund which the local war relief com- mittee are raising for the purchase of 1,000 sand- bags for the troops. Councillor T. Norton, J.P., chairman of We U.D.C., presided over a splendid audience, which comprised many of the leading visitors and resi- dents. The programme was sustained by the Irish Ladies' Orchestra (conducted by Miss "Mur- iel Jack) and the Welsh Ladies' Choir (conducted by Mr W. Thomas). The programme was as follows :—Overture' "Ruy BIas"; selection, "La Bohemme"; part- songs, (a.) "Robin Adair," (b) "Men of Har- lech," choir; duet, "Will you marry me, vol pretty maid?"

The choir was very successful, hearty encoreS being given for the "Comrade's Song of Hope and "The Soldier's Farewell." For the latter and the "Land of my Fathers" the choir wer0 accompanied by the orchestra, the blend being ex- cellent and the whole performance most etIecti"e. The overtures by the orchestra were very tUJ1 ful. Every member of the orchestra. is a re* musician, and the playing was most pleasivlg* The 'cello eolo was encored, and the violin sOlO doubly so. The Misses Evans (LlangOO" march Wells) were warmly encored for their pretty and pleasing duet, and Miss Sybil Evanff responded with "I am so shy." The chairman tendered the thanks of the aU' dience to the orchestra and choir. He said they were all delighted to know that the orchestra haa- decided to remain for the season. (Applause-) Mr Thomas and his beautiful choir were always ready to assist a good cause. (Applause.) They were always at the front "-(hear, hear) an i the choir had once more rendered excellent service by its beautiful singing In conclusion, he had to tender the thanks of the town committee to the large audience for its splendid support of this ef- fort for so worthy a cause.
