ABERAVON RUGBY CLUB. I Patriotic Decision: An Appeal to Young Men. At a meeting of the Aberavon Rugby J Football Club Committee on Tuesday night, on the motion of Mr. Lewis Thomas (Chairman) seconded by Mr. Hopkin Jones, the following resolution wa unanimously passed: Tha.t this oommitteo realise the very serious posi- tion this country is in, iknd fed that ;n such eircumistances it is impossible to j consider the question of their sport, and unanimously resolve that no football be played during the war, and hope that. all young ruen, instead of filling up meir time in playing football during the rinter, as in the past, will consider the ippeal made by Lord Kitchener to fill -he ranks, and thereby assist to save their country from the hands of the enemy." It was further resolved to do anything in the club's power to assist in promoting ihl) interest of rfhy relief fund. THE RESPONSE OF THE I CRICKETERS. In a letter to the Evening Standard" Mr. P. F.

T know among amateur cricketers more than one schoolmaster who would give a great deal to be able to join !-ome corps, but even in war time the youth of England must be educated, and these men cannot possibly give up their work. A Cricketers' Corp' was suggested, but the War Office disapproved of the idea, and meanwhile the amateur cricketers of England are as a AThole clol ng" their best to be of some use to their country in her hour of trial. I hope and I believe f bo professional cricketers will follow th<*ir example/* E. S. M. Poyntz. P. P.

Condon served 15 years in the Field Artillery, and had rejoined ior active service. Supt. Boti Evans said that when Sergt. Hale arrested the two men it was found that they were heavily armed, and ho called upon Condon, who immediately came to his assistance and rendered valu- able services. Councillor T. Owen, J.P.. said that many people knowing that th9 two des- perate characters were armed, would have hesitated to have assisted, but Condon had proved himself a soldier and a man (Applause.) He thought that Sergt. Halt, in tracking down those two men, with other important arrests, had proved him- self one of the best officers in the country. (Applause.). The presentation amounted to X7. (Applause.) Mr. Condon, in returning thanks, said that he had given his assistance to the police as a white man and a soldier always should, and ho never expected or looked for a rt,Ni-ard.

SKETTYS DESIRE, I i I ISOORPOBATIOS WITHIN BOUNDARIES OF i SWANSEA. i "A VERY BIG LIE." A meeting of the parochial electors M Sketty was called for Tuesday evening at the Church Hall to approve, or otherwise, of t.ho proposid for the iueiufiion of the parish of (Ipckett in the borough of Swan- s«a. Only a limited "number attended. This was not surprising in view of th subject which is obsessing everybody's miiul at present, and the apathy at the best of times of the ratepayers to devote proper attention to matters vrhicli concern j them. The Rates of the District. Mr. Joim Dav ies (chairman of Cocfectc Parisli Council), who presided, said he thought, they were after a Rood busiftcas proposition in seeking to be incorporated in the borough. (Hear, hear.) Whereae in the borough the rates were consider- ably under 108.. iti the parish of Cockett they were considerably over Mi*. There would be other blp: ivdvafltagef. He thought it was ftfily fair for Swansea to take them iii. bccause growing districts j like Pforesiiach and Sketty helped enor- J'^jufcly in the success of Swamsfca trades- men and tho town. Mr. J. T. Martyn (clerk to the Parish Council) explained the frl:l\p which had led up to the present position, and said i petitions were being sent around to every parochial elector. He thought inclusion in the borough would be a great advantage to the people of Cockett. We Have Outgrown Them." I Mr.. Walter Webber (vice-chairman of the Parish Council) "aid a few weeks ago people came to him and. asked, in view Of the war. if they were going on with the proposal. Of confBe they were. It would II be unlike Britons to stop. The local Government Board also held the mune I view. Proceeding, Mr. Webber said the Rural District Council had done their duty as well ay their limited powers al- lowed thew, and so had the Parish Coun- cil, "but we have oubgrowa theo). He had advocated urban powers, and even then he was trying to find a way into the borough. They had arranged with the Corporation to promote a provisional order. The terms were an equal en- franchisement. That meant that the people of Sketty, and the other districts would go mo tlio borough on exactly the sallie terms as the citizens miW. They would have the same right of voting and the tamo right of representation. Cockett parish was about five-sixths the existing size of Swansea borough. The New Council of 60. I It. was in tho air that the new council would consist of some 60 members, and I the parishioners of Cockett could be sure that the representation on the council would be more effective than their repre- I sentation at P res itnt ou the District I Council. It was pretty certain that the whole of CookoVt would go into the borough. Comparing the rateq. Mr. Webber said he worked out the rates of Cockett, parish at present at lis. M.he knew some would disagree with him. Next year, or perhaps a little later, if they remained under the District Council, the Forest- tw'h sewerage schemo would make them rise to 1;)£. Swansea rates at present were 8. 7d., so on tJlJ present basis they would be saving 3s. by joining- the borough. "We are-going into a town that is really well-managed," he said, "and a town which affords us » great deal of scope for improving our own position." In this connection he emphasi?d the im.-¡ proternent ?v-ould. Kke place in the sanitation and drainage of the district. A Very Big Lie." I Referring to statements made on the I othor Bide, he said it was being blazoned about that Swansea had a great interest \n takiug them m, that Svranfta is nearly bank- rupt, and it (irlty requires taking ua iu to increase their borrowing powers." That is a very big he,» he declared. The borrowing powers of Swansea were not nearly exhausted. Jti fact, there was only a limit placed on their borrow- ing powers in regard to sanitiwy matters, and that was twice their rateable value. The rateable value was L.5,140.000, and they had borrowed £ KJO,OOU, so they had got. nearly as far again to go before the borrowing powers were exhausted. Improved Educational Facilities. I Mr. Stanley Cook observed that, virhereas uo-ir Sketty was under three authorities, if they adopted the proposal they would b* under one. He thought the people ill Sketty had made tip their minds to get into the borough, aud they wanted to see the object accomplished as quickly as possible. He pointed out to parent* zh(, great advantage in the way of educational facilities that would accrue if they were linked up with the borough. I Access to the Gower- ton County School was not so easy as to the Swansea Secondary School. At present there were 150 borough children attending Skotty Coun- cil School. Tbo positinn of the teachers now outside the borough would also be im ptoved. Mr. J. H. Morgan moved a resolution approving of the proposed inclusion of the Parish of Cockett in the borough, and authorising the committee appointed by the annual assembly of tho parish meet- ing to render to the. Council all such assistance as might be necessary to accomplish the proposed inclusion. Mr. Isaac seconded and the resolution way carried unanimously.
