A PROUD DISTINCTION. A thrill of pride swept like a joyous tide throec^h Llaneily—and as far as Pwll —on Th ■when news came that a loLal soldier nad gained the proudest dis- tinction that can be won by a British soldier or sailor. It was felt that Sergt. Ivor Rees to whom we take off our hats, had not only made his name famous for all time in the military annals of the Empire, loot also that he had brought honour to the town of his birth. Llaneily is always proud of the achievements Ct, her sons, and they, in like manner, are gratified to have done something to maintain the splendid traditions of their native place. The Victoria. Cross marks the utmost limit in military and naval honours, and it has been won by a modest Llanellyite who, a few years ago, was working at a local steel factory without a thought of war in his mind. But he had in him the stuff of which heroes are made because when the call came in 1914, 118 offered himself on the altar of his country's necessity and became one of Kitchener's men. Sergt. Rees is a citizen soldier of the best type,—the type which abhors militarism but is ready to accept war before dishonour. The story of his splendid heroism will never be for- gotten. It is an epic of the steel-worker who in the hour of supreme dapger count- ing his life as but nothing, played the man and came through unscathed as by a miracle. It is by patriots such as he that the world is being saved f"om disaster to-day. But for him and others like him, the German avalanche would have overrun the whole of France, and the world would be at the mercy of a military autocracy owning no law but the law of its own necessity. From this desperate plight civilization has been saved by the "contemptible little army," and those who, like Sergt. Rees, followed in its footsteps. To us, as Llanellyites, it is a matter of peculiar satisfaction that the Victoria Cross, the eight Military Crosses, and the numerous Military Medals have been won by citizen soldiers. They were good citizens before the war, and since, then their citizenship has been transformed into a fine active patriotism which makes us proud of them. The time will soon come, let us hope, when the clamour of war will have ceased and then Sergt. Rees and his fe llow-towns- meu in khaki will be restored to us to again take their places in our midst as "citizens of no mean city. rUCAR CARD PROBLEMS. The issue to householders of application forms for sugar registration cards has been hegun through the Post OHice, and the distrilmtioa is to be completed by the old of the month. The forms will he idled up by the head of each household, and must be sent to the local food office not later thill October 6th. A corres- pondent who recently drew Lord Rhon- dda's attention to the difficult position of householders as regards sugar ior (1) schoolchildren home for the holidays, (2) unexpected visitors temporarily residing in the house, and (3) householders visit- ing or removing to another district, has received the following reply :— (1) Children away at school should be included among the persons in respect of whom a Sugar Registration Card is ap- plied for, but while they are absent their weekly allowance should not he ordered from the retailer with whom the family is registered. (2) In regard to the question of visi- tors, the Department as at present ad- vised are afraid they will not be able to l l not J)e itl) i e to make special arrangements to enable a householder to claim additional sugar for guests temporarily residing in his house. (3) Arrangements will be made to en- able a householder in special circum- stances to have his Sugar Registration Card transferred from one district to an- other. Information as to the circum- stances in which transfer can !>o mEldo will be obtainable from the local foodj office in due course. "r A SCATHING REBUKE, W o would commend to the jricifi-ts of I thi> ancl other countries t." • striking I reply made by Mr. Red field, of the United States Department of Commerce, to peace resolution. It is a most scathifl £ reminder of what the self-styled pions of peace forget. Mr Redfiekl the pretensions, of the pacifists bare and | shmys that the real friends of peace are those who are determined to put an end once for all to "a skilful and highly trained autocracy, cond ucting a secret- campaign in this and other countries and pleading in the fair name of Peace for the pruHege of doing its foul deeds." What are the facts ? Democracy to-day, as Mi* ,tr(, tlio fi(-ts pacifists, da yas ,III' against a mili LHi t im tocracy whose lust ior power began this murderous war. Germany to-day is the desperado of the IN-oi, l j. It world. It has put its heel on Belgium" on ^eriiia, on Montenegro, on Poland, on Rumania, and on a fair part of France. Ilai-e tho pacifists nothing to say about the rape of Belgium ? Do they not- shrink with horror at the fate that has befallen so many of the daughters of hiance ? It is against those infamies that the free peoples of the world- are now standing embattled. As Mr. Red- field points out:—"In this fearful combat autocracy now trembles on the edge of. disaster, and this is tho time that the pacifists cunningly lift their voice in its behalf. No humane note rings in the resolution of the pacifists. No pity for slaughtered nations shows in it. The pacifists have an excuse for Germany, The moral forces of the world have none." JUVENILE CRIME. Judging from the report presented to the Free Church Council this week, there appears to be quite an epidemic of juvenile crime in South Wales. Ln- happily, only too much evidence exists that the epidemic has spread to Llaneily m ail alarming degree. On Thursday, for instance, the local Bench had before them no fewer than 23 youthful offenders, most of whom were found guilty of thefts and wilful damage. The statistics from other town arc equally disquieting, 73 convictions having been recorded in Swansea alone during the last three montus. 1 his is a problem which ought to receive the serious attention of the authorities, particularly the educational "rl religious bodies in every town. We reported recently that a conference was held in at which the police, the m. giscrates and the education committee wove represented. No report hils been issued as to what steps should be taken locally, but we believe that a general agreement was arrived at as to the prin- cipal causes of the prevalence of lawless- ness among children. Much of it may he ascribed to the loosening of the tics of home discipline, due to the absence of the father. There is also a war spirit abroad which finds vent among boys in nocturnal garden escapades and other forms of mischief. It is a pi ty that this spirit cannot be directed in more useful channels. Here is a task for our teachers. At the Free Church Conference it was decided to recommend conferences be- tween Sunday School superintendents alc1 piobation oiffcers in each town with a. view to discussing how probation officers (o;;1d no assisted in their work. Another recommendation was that magistrates- should be asked to adopt the, nwdeJ. clauses in regard to cinemas.
