PREMIER'S MESSAGE SWALES NOT TO TIRE IN THE STRUGCLT The Rev. J. Morgan Gibbon, M.A., in the course of a lecture at Port Talbot ou Wednesday, read a message which Mi-. Lloyd George had given him to convey to the Welsh people. The message ran:- Wales fought for hundreds o feyars for her freedom; she is not now to tire in the struggle which has lasted over three years for the freedom of the world, including herself.—D. Lloyd George."—(Applause). Mr. Gibbon's lecture was entitled, A flower in the crater," and was a searching inquiry into the problem of reconstruc- tion. The flower they were looking for was the new peace—not a vatchv and fra.. gile peece, but the peace of the Angels of Bethlehem—peace on earth, peace for everybody, everywhere, guarded and guar. anteed by everybody. He made a stirring appeal for unity, You will not," lie sai(l, bring in a new era by making a bigger crater even if you want to revolt you must have a country to revolt in. But the country wants every man. Sometimes I feel ashamed of my country when I hear of the things said and done here. I don't like the idea of South Wales being made the happy hunt., ing ground of every English faddist ami crank to come here on Sunday afternoons to set fire to men's brains. Welshmen' Stand by your country! You have sund enough of 'Hen Wrlad fv NhadauJ you must change it to Hen Wlad fv Mhlant.1 You must think of the future. (Ap- plause). Preaching on Wednesday afternoon on Man power in the present crisis," Ml Gibbon said that a short while ago h< was going up the Rhondda Valley, and, talking to a young collier, told him, "Yov would not go on with a strike in the pre- sent crisis P" I would," said the col- lier. Even if it led to the defeat of your country?" "I would," he said. Then his face relaxed, and he smiled and said, But it won't come to that." It was a terribly dangerous game to play, said Mr. Gibbon, to saw away at the branch on which you are sitting, com- forting yourself with the belief that it i too thick to saw through. If the Church in Wales was to be of anj wee to the country, it must come down from the m(iunt-,in-they wanted more everydayness in their religion. One Oi the things that struck him most out in France was the wonderfully beautifu1 natural goodness displayed by the soldiers.
