SUFFERED FROM FITS I I SWANSEA MAN WHO WAS PASSES GLASS A. Aid. T. Merreils presided over the Swan- sea Recruiting Tribunal on Thursday. A Grade 11. man, previously employ (Id as a linotype operator, asked for exemp- tion on the ground that serious domestic hardships would ensue if he were sent to the Army. One brother had been killed, another permanently injured, and a third had been totally discharged. His mother was partly dependent upon him. The tribunal, after considering in pri- vate, adjourned tiie case for a month for the man to finid work of national impor- tance. Time had been previously al- lowed for the man to find work of na- tional importance, and he had been taken on at his present employment, after hav- ing one time left it for work in munition factory. They did not consider his pre- sent work of national importance. A single man, who had had an accident which gave him abdominal trouble, itad who also suffered from fits, said he was passed Class A for observation." Aid. Merreils: Did you toll those who examined you the facts? Applicant: Yes, Sir. He claimed he was unfit for service on medical grounds, and domestic hardship would ensue, as he was the sole support of his widowed mother. Adjourned for further medical evidence. At Neath Borough Tribunal on Thurs- day, the president (Aid. H. P. Charles, J.P.) referred to the recent proclamation under the new Military Service Act, and said it was a scandalous shame that con- scientious objectors, whom he character- ised as skunks and cowards," should be protected by a clause giving them the right of appeal, denied to other men who might have legitimate grounds for appeal.
