THE FREIGHT PROBLEM I HOW WELSH TINPUTE TRADE IS BEINC SESifliiSiY HIT DELAYED SHIPMENTS That iD oon=(?qtienoo of very bigli freights. Ute. necessity for licenses, etc., South Wales tinplaic raanufarturers are undoubtedly in a difficult, position is the: view of a Sv.-an5.ea gentleman who has every opportunity of knowing, and who tiiscussed with a "Leader" reprosenta-1 ttve some of th3 intricacies of the post- i tion. j In the first place, there had, he said, j twn delay in granting licenses for ship- am-nr. of places to Holland, Sweden. Den- mark and Norway, and, since the in- tereits of the country and the successful prosecution of tAse war must: be primary considerations, personally be did not ex- poet the Government to do much in re- spouse to the representations being made unless it could be absolutely sure that the plates were required in those coun- tries for genuine trade purposes. I Accumulated Stocks. He did not think that in consequence J ox this (although, of course, the pro" j prietors only could say) any great stocks iutd accumulated at the works since the conference which reduced the output so; gieatly, but It was true that stocks in the docks sheas were higher than at this ] lime last year, wh''U they were exces- J lively high I But. much the greater problem was un- j doubtedly that of freights, which were very often three itmes high as before the outbreak of war. This was an ex- j treruely difiicult problem needing urgent attention, and on which the realisation of interned enemy ships would have I some effect. U.S. Competition. American competition during and after j the war had also an important bearing on the We.Ish tinplate manufacturers' position. It would be a help to them if the American plates were declared con- traband, but that would again complicate matters. Fortunately the American?, were in the same difficulty as to freights. Another factor oi no small importance was that prices of Welsh plates had risen greatly owing to advances in raw materials. Only in the last month the increase in price from this cause had been from 12s. or 13s. per standard box to lis. 3d.—lis. The question was whether, n-itb. these prices prevailing, j timber and other materials would not boj more used in. packing.

ALAWCN GWERIN MON I Folk Songs From Anglesey. I (BY DR. Q, VN THOMAS.) J he above is the tit le 01 a recautiy i&sued collection of people's songs, which ought to prove particularly attractive to the musical antiquarian, and also, in my judgment, to (he art student. The question of the value of folk j songs genora lly has been, debated some- what recently in some of our leading i magazines, notably by Mr. Cecil Sharp and Mr. Ernest Newman in the" English Review." To be precise, their value as a basis for a national school of music, be the country England, Russia, Germany, or Wales, has been proclaimed on tho one side, aoo fla tly denied on the other. This is not the place to debate the matter. It is a pleasure to see set np in good type and on good paper the music And words of seven Anglesey folk songs. But the contents ,tT, the thing. The first song, "Titl"wlTI, Tahwm;" has a haunt- ing strain. It has points of construction, though doubtlessly only semi-coivscionsily used by the unknown composer, which aTh the eye at once. The last line: C'hvyrh y fan. itai gyn-ith toe, Mae'n bin ddryg-hinog heno," admirably expresses both the longing of the lover, who is Weithiau vn Llun- da-ni, ac weithia.u yn Nghaer (twmcrfimAs m Londou, sometimes in Chester)—what a prosaic: rlrop in PNI)ross on '-and the sough of the wind on the moor at night.. Yes. thercr is a breath of the open here. "Y Gelynen" is very much like the class of thijig heard by the writfr in remote parts of Denbighshire, in the Nantglyn and Mvnydd .Hiraet'nog district. The leaping notes of the ai r are particu- larly enlivening and free from the polished smoothness and sophistry of ■some of onr Welsh airs. The next, "Cob MaWraerh," with its modal melody, well worth preserving. The accompani- ment of this melody is very successful. The particularly happy choice of the right chord and progression is a gTeat hP h) to an appreciation 01 the fharaeter of this fine tune.. The rhythmic variety in C'wyn Mam-ynghyfraith (The Mother-in-law's Complaint) is again happy in effect. Fy Meddwl a f.' Malais i Joalousyi, Tin o Fy Mrodyr i (One of My Brothers), and Cyfri'r j Geifr (Counting .the Goats), are not perba.ps so vorthy of preservation. The collection is the work of Mrs. Grace G*ynedr!on Davies, and is evidently a laViour of love. The English versions IIY Mr. Robert Bryan are very good. The diction is simple, and would cause no offeree to English ears. 1 ha accompani- ments deserve a word of praise for appro- priateness and a steady avoidance of un- necessary draperies. The collection is published by the Welsh Publishing Co., Caernarvon.
