GETTING TO WORK. Crickhowell and National Service RURAL COUNCIL'S DISCUSSION. Mr ^V. G. James presided at the monthly meeting of this Council on Monday, at the Town Hall, Crick- howell. The clerk read several circulars regarding National Service, and said he attended a conference of chairmen and clerks to District Councils in the County at Brecon, on Friday, when Mr John Rowland on be- half of the Government explained the scheme. A Central Committee was appointed, and it was sug- gested that the various Councils should select repre- sentative Committees. Professor Joseph Jones, M.A., Brecon, Sub-Com- missioner for Breconshire and Radnorshire, who was invited to address the Council impressed upon the members the urgent necessity of carrying out the scheme and hoped the Council would appoint a Com- mittee to work it locally. It was felt that the Gov- ernment ought to decide whether a man was doing work of national importance. The moral value of a wave of national readiness could not be estimated and the Government wauted to know that its third line of defence was ready and willing. Mr E. Pirie Gordon asked whether canvassers could get forms tilled up on the spot. Prof. Jones Certainly. Mr E. Pirie Gordon And what right of-appeal will a person haveSome will probably hold that they are doing work of national importance already. Professor Jones Machinery will be set up to deal with questions of that kind. Mr Gwilym James said canvassers should be in a position to .answer questions. A number of Councillors expressed the opinion that the scheme was in an incomplete state. Professor Jones You must trust the Government. A vote of thanks was accorded Professor Jones for his remarks. A Committee comprising the Councillors, County Councillors and clergymen and ministers of the district with power to co-opt was appointed, but it was de- cided to defer action pending further particulars and instructions. Mr T. LI. Jones complained that the people of Llan- elly were not asked as other people had been what seed potatoes they required, and said the outlook in that part of the district was very serious. The Chairman I regret I cannot help you, it is not a matter for this Council.
