 HINDU LADY GHA!RED I REMARKABLE SCENES AT I ABERYSTW f TH EISTEDDFOD, A unique "chairing" is the history of Welsh Eisteddiodau was that which took place at Aberystwyth College, on Saturday night. At the annual eis- teddfod held at the. college, the chair was won hy Miss Dorothy Bonarjee, a young Indian student. The subject set for the chair ode was Owen Lawgoch." Mr. T. Gwynn Jones, tho adjudicator, said four poems had been submitted, and each 01 them was described as being well worthy of the chair. The highest place was awarded to "Shita," for an ode written in English, aud described as an excellent and highly dramatic treatment of the subject. Mr. Gwynn Jones was unstinted in his praise, and singled out for particular mention the restraint and strength of the poet's treatment of the murder scene. Miss Bonarjee received a dearfening ovation when she stood up and revealed herself as "Shita." She wjus led up to the throne by Dr. Parry Williams (a chaired and crowned National Eistedd- fod Bard. The "chairing" ceremony then proceeded amidst great enthu- siasm. Miss Bonarjee has been over in this country for about eight years; this is her second year at Aberystwyth College, and it is understood that she came very near to winning the chair last year also. She is the daughter of a prominent Indian barrister, and by a very fortu- nate co-incidence, Mr. and Mrs. Bonar- jee, who are over on a visit to this country, were present to witness their duaghter's umque achievement. At the conclusion of the ceremony, Mr. Bonarjee responded briefly and with considerable emotion, to the insisbant demands of the audience for a speech.
