NATIONAL SERVICE NATIONAL SERVICE Our food stocks are low- alarmingly lower than they have been within recollection- Mr. LLOYD GEORGE. MILLIONS of tons of shipping, "i needed for carrying food and other essentials tonnage now taken up by importing Timber and Iron Ore-can be saved by felling trees in our own country and by the home production of Ore. Iron Ore is essential for Munitions of War, for Shipbuilding, for Agricultural y' Machinery. We have mines in this country which could turn out an extra 140 to 1 jO thousand tons of iron ore a month. There are mines I in Cumberland, in Lancashire; there are the famous Cleveland | Mines. Skilled labour and unskilled are needed. The need is im- mediate-and urgent. Important iron works are already closed down for want of ore. Here is work for strong men to do-work essential to the life of the nation—work that will tell like a smashing blow in the face of the Germans. Men of muscle, men of iron will, strip for the fight. Come forward and offer your services. Whatever you are doing now, offer to work in the ore mines if it is there that the State wants your aid-if it is there you can best make your strength felt. Do you want the war to drag on for a long period in a broken- backed condition-do you want the Germans to have time to starve you into surrender ? Strike a blow for your country. «* 1 I Skilled labour is available in the stone and slate quarries of North Wales and in some collieries that are not working full time.

Hay Council. Applicants and Allotments. mere were present at the meeting of Hay Urban Council on Monday, Mr David Morgan (in the chair), and Messrs Enoch George, Jas. Powell, John Morgan, T. J. Stokoe-, T. E. James, James Cater and Frank Cadman, with the surveyor (Mr Herbert Gilby), and Mr A. Howard (acting-clerk.) Arising out of a circular from the National War Savings' Committee, suggesting that associations for that purposo should be formed in the locality, Mr T. J. Stokoe said something should be done to inaugurate associations, so that Soor people might be able to put money into the war loan, if only to the extent of buying,15s 6djscripts He suggested that the committee which had already been formed should meet at tliesur- veyor's office one evening a week in order to give as- sistance to anyone and also to receive subscriptions from persons desirous of subscribing. A circular letter from the L.G.B. was received en- closing au order with regard to the construction of wheels of agricultural locomotives on highwavs. Allotments. r The Board of Agriculture wrote with regard to the cultivation of lands order, with further regulations made under the Defence of the Realm regulations as to the acquision of land and which empowered the council to enter into possession of any land whether occupied or not, and without the consent of the owner or occupier, for the purpose of using such land for allottments. No action was taken in the matter as no application for allotments had been received. Later, however, two applications were received, namely, from Mr W. C. Boucher and Mr Richard Evans, Lion Street, in which they asked for ground in which to grow potatoes. Mr James Cater enquired if there was any land about. Mr Enoch George said it was a rather important ap- plication, and asked where they were going to get the land from ir Mr Cater There is the Green. Mr Enoch George said there might be a craze for growing potatoes for a few years and they could hardly expect farmers and others to break up land to let at the risk of it being given up in the course of a few years. The question of people having rows of potatoes grown them by ithe farmers was brought up and Mr James Cater expressed the opinion that farmers would rather not grow rows of potatoes. Mr Cater suggested that they send the two appli- cants to Mr Jas. Evans who was the owner of several nuused gardens attached to houses. Mr John Morgan agreed, and said they could not have a field broken up for two applicants. The council resolved that the applicants should be referred to Mr James Evans, who could supply them with the necessary land. Apropos of this question, a letter was read from Mr A. C. Samson, in which he stated that there were several people in the town who were anxious to obtain allot- ments for the purpose of growing vegetables. Ho called the council's attention to the warnings issued by the Prime Minister and others, and consddered that it was a very serious matter, and urged them to take action at once. He stated that a professional gardener had volunteered to give advise to all applicants free of charge. The council invited applications for allotments, but, as only two had been received, no further action was taken.
