.—. — SUMMER RESORTS. AN ADVERTISING SCHEME. FEDERATION MOVEMENT. At the Llandrindod Wells Council on Friday the clerk read I long letter from Mr Brown, of Harrogate, secretary of the Joint Federation of British Spas, explaining the proposed joint scheme for adver- tising and co-operation. Mr Norton proposed that the council should, join the Joint Federation, saying there was no financial respon- sibility in-connection with the proposed Federation. He believed the Federation would develop into a big thing in the future, and he believed there would be imme- diate benefit to the town to be so closely associated with such important Spas as Harrogate, Bath and Buxton. They would get the same amount of publicity as their big rivals, and his view was that they should support this proposal very strongly. One concern in the town had ottered to subscribe one-quarter of the £100 required to become a partner in the proposed ad- vertising scheme. (Hear, hear.) Dr. Worthington seconded, and suggested that the, advertising scheme should be fully gone into at the earliest possible date. He went on to speak on the re- lative disadvantages of British and Continental Spas. and indicated ways by which the former could become more successful competitors, and he urged the import- ance of increased advertising. Mr Button strongly supported, and advocated the co. ordination of the three spas of the town, which, he said, j would be to the ultimate advantage of the town as a. j whole. Mr C. H. Williams also supported, and urged that the large hotels, which were likely to benefit most by the scheme, should "put their hands down." If the large hotels would assist, there ought to be no difficulty in raising the necessary £100. Mr Saunders suggested that the managers of the big hotels should he invited to attend the meeting, or that a public meeting should be held. The resolution was agreed to.

Church, held on Wednesday evening, over which the pastor (Rev. Tudor Jones, B.A.) presided. A paper, written by a former member of the church, Mr D. W. Pugh, who is with the Brecknocks in India, was read, it was practically a New Year message entitled "Things which are not seen." It was evidently the result of patient thought and re- search, deeply spiritual and as a result optimistic, its optimism being enhanced by appropriate poetic touches which caused the message to be sweet and agreeably acceptable. After the reading of the paper by Mr W T Davies, short addresses were given by the pastor, Mr T. Williams and Mr D. J. Morgan.

Llandrindod Council. The Llandrindod Council on Friday decided to give permiseion for the use of a room at the Public Library fcr the National Service Scheme, and the clerk said he had already intimated that he and his staff were at the disposal of the or- ganisers for any service they could render. It was decided to refer the local work under the National Service Scheme to the War Relief Committee, On the motion of Mr Bufton, seconded by Mr J. Jones, it was decided to express disapproval of the pro- posal that the University of Wales should be controlled. by 10 persons nominated by the Government. Mr Jones and Mr Williams urged the desirability of monthly practices of the Fire Brigade, but it was ex- plained that practices had been impracticable during the severe frost. Mr Sinig assured the council that the captain and the brigade were doing everything possible, and the chairman, who has been a critic of the brigade before its re-organisation, now expressed his satisfac- tion, but agreed that regular practices should be main- tained for some time. Dr. Worthington called attention to the number of houses which had lost their water-supply through the I frost, but the chairman explained that the failure wa- due to service pipes, and not to frost in the mains. The clerk reported that the surveyor had been twice asked by the Joint Hospital Board of Conway and Pen- maenmawr if he could undertake to prepare and carry through a sewage disposal scheme for their hospital. Congratulatory speeches were made by the Chairman and Mr J. 0. Bufton, and regret was expressed that it was impossible for the surveyor to be released for this work-a conclusion which was fully shared by the sur- veyor and himself. The clerk reported that the Life-boat appeal bad re- suited in a sum of £5 lls being sent for this excellent work. Mr Jeffrey Jones was appointed as a delegate to the House and Town Planning conference, which is to be held at Cardiff in March. The Pavilion Committee recommended that Mr W. Alec Millward should be accepted as the lessee of the Grand Pavilion on the same terms as Mr Ivor M. Johns, who retires from the pesitoin, several new con- ditions being added, including one with reference to ad- vertising hoardings. The committee further reported that a conference between the three spas has been ar- ranged, in order to discuss proposals in reference to the. charges for the medicinal waters. The Roads Committee presented a lengthy report, and it included one from the surveyor in reference to tar- spraying the roads, which was estimated to cost £ 165 14s 2d, or 1.23d per square yard. He further re- ported that the cost of a horizontal machine, 160 gal- lons capacity, would be about R89, .and for a vertical machine, 100 gallons, £63. The report of the Plans Committee was confined to several comments respecting temporary buildings and plans of a pig-stye. The Sanitary Committee reported that. they were in correspondence, through the clerk, with Miss M.
