Food Control Committee.
Food Control Committee. LAST NIGHT'S MEETING. At a meeting of the Llanelly Food Con- trol Committee last night, an interesting report was submitted on the progress made in the distribution of sugar cards. The bulk of the cards were ready and the despatch cf them will be completed in a day or two. Appreciation was expressed of the assistance given by a number of teachers, while several clerks from the Steel Works, Tinstamping Works, Thomas and Clement, J. S. Tregoning Ltd., Glanmor Foundry, Old Lodge Works, Buckleys Brewery, and the Wes- tern Works had also done valuable work. It was reported that the schedule of butter prices had been fixed. This will be found in our advertisement columns. Complaints were received on Thursday that several sellers in the Market had to pay 2s. 4d. and 2s. 4jd. for butter. It was reported that there was a serious shortage of butter in the town. With regard to potatoes, application had been received and certificate,s issued in respect of 23 wholesale dealers and 207 retail dealers. These had been appor- tioned between eating potatoes and seed potatoes as was found necessary. It was suggested that sab-committees be appointed to supervise the detail work, such as allocation of retail sugar, fixing potatoe prices, etc. The following were appointed as a sub-committee to deal with the intricate work in connection with the meat regulations and prices:— Councillors M. Morgan, Dd. Jennings, W E. Clement, and Mr. Evan Thomas, junr., Westfa—the last-named being invited to give the committee the benefit of his practical experience. A deputation of wholesale potatoe dealers waited on the committee with the object of having a flat rate fixed for haulage. Mr. Fred Chidzoy suggested that 10s. would be a fair and reasonable rate, but the committee considered that this was too high and fixed it at 5s.. Discussion arose in an applicatio- prom ice oream dealers for an increased supply of sugar. Some members, expressed the opinion that ice cream was after all, a luxury, and that the sugar could be put to better use by being distributed to the public. The matter was ultimately de- ferred. A resolution was passed asking the Ministry of Food to take steps to have Danish butter marked so that it could be distinguished as such. This step was considered necessary owing +o L mplaints that as much as 4s. a Ih. had been asked for this class of butter in some towns. It was reported that a -number of sugar application forms had been returned in- completely filled up. In many cases, ta> address was given, which entailed a lot of extra unnecessary work upon the offi- cials. It was decided +o ask the Ckv to the FilncatîonCommittee to fcrmg the matter before the teachers so that they I .■could take it up with the children.

The Housing Problem. A—
The Housing Problem. A — I To the Editor of the "Star." Sir, There is a deal of discussion in various quarters throughout the country arising through the great scarcity of houses. In seeking for a remedy it might first of all be useful to find the reason for the pre- sent condition of things. Most people when discussing the matter seem to think that it is all due to the present high prices of materials and labour owing to the war, but builders and property owners can trace the cause further back than that. In 1909 Mr. Lloyd George's big Budget came down on the building trade like a cartload of bricks and simply smashed it. House property immediately became an unprofitable investment and a poor security. Bankers and solicitors closed their purse-strings and the specu- lative builders shut up shop. Other Bud- gets since then have only tended to make matters worse, until now there is an un- comfortable feeling that house property is merely an instrument for the collection of all sorts of local and Imeprial taxation The time has now arrived when the Government ought to consider whether it would be better to encourage the specu- lative builder by easing the taxation on property than by lending huge sums to municipalities who can never hope to com- pete with him in the work. A very small relief in taxation would soon induce capi- tal to flow once more in this direction, and in spite of the increased prices, etc., the mortar mills would soon begin to grind again and the supply of houses would meet the demand, hut at an in- creased rent. I am, etc., I BUILDER.

I BURRY PORT LETTERS. I Wounded at Ypres. v I I have great pleasure in writing in acknowledgement of the parcel of cigar- ettes you sent me. I am sorry to .say I was not in Franco at the time, as I was wounded on May 30th, while preparing for the attack near Ypres. I happened to he out wiring in no man's land—a job that I had done hundreds of times before, but 1 iii this particular night, the Hun spotted us, and I was struck by a machine gun bullet in my i-ight side, hut I I was rather lucky—it passed clean through, splintering two of my ribs. I was in France ten days before being sent to England. I hope you will excuse me for not writing before because I knew nothing about it until one of my pals'sent me the card that was in the parcel. It is ;t rule they have out there if one gets wounded they open all the parcels and share fhe contents between share the contents between them.— W D. Williams. Sunk a Submarine. I Just a few lines thanking you once more for your kindness in sending me the cigarettes. I hope the time is not far off for us all to be home once more. I also hope that when we do come home it will be with the satisfaction that German militarism will never again dare to dis- turb the peace of the world. I dare say that by the time we have finished with them they will about have had enough. We have had beautiful weather this last month, and we need it badly to cope with the work we are doing. We had the pleasure of sinking a submarine a week last Sunday, so you can see that they are not having it all their own way. I was reading about the air raid, and I must say it is terrible slaughtering poor in- nocent women and children, but they can depend on it that a worm can turn. In my opinion the best thing we can do to stop it is to pay them back in their own coin.—Stoker Wm. Fender, H.M. T.B.D. Rother.

Mystery Cleared Up. -♦!
Mystery Cleared Up. -♦ WHAT THE PIRATES DID. Mr. AV. W. Brodie (coroner) resumed the inquest at Burry Port on Tuesday on the body of the man that had been washed ashore, which was identified as that 01 William Louis Christie, mercantile marine engineer, of Hillside, Castle road, Warley, near Birmingham. Eva Eastwood, 33, Wolden House, High street, Marleybone, said the description of the deceased corresponded with that of Wm. L. Christie, who was a second- class engineer on the s.s. Moelda. The boat was supposed to reach London in the first week of September, but she hatT not arrived. She was reported sunk off Hart- land on August 25th. Andrew Alexander Christie, 12, South street, Greenwich, said deceased was his brother. Witness produced a letter from the Secretary of the British India Steam Navigation Co., Ltd., dated Oct. 1st, stating that the body of Mr. Panes, who was in charge of the boat in which wit- ness' brother was when the crew of the Malda left the vessel (which was sunk by an enemy submarine on August 25th) had been picked up off Hartland, and that no hope could be held out of any members of the 2nd officer's (Mr Pane's) boat being alive. Deceased was 28 years of age. The jury returned a verdict that de- ceased was probably drowned.

Storage of Potatoes.
Storage of Potatoes. ADVICE TO ALLOTMENT HOLDERS. With the object of preventing any wastage of the plentiful potato crops, Sir Arthur Y app, Dirctor of Food Economy, has had stimrpai-d a leaflet issued hy the Board of Agriculture and Fisheries giving advice as to storage which may be adopted with advantage by allotment holders and small growers. The following hints are given:- I.-T,ift the potatoes in dry weather. Grade into sizes (large, medium and small). Remove diseased tubers as they are picked up. 2.—Store the potatoes loosely in small stacks so as to allow the air to cirGulate freely. The stacks should he protected from rain and frost. Again look over the potatoes to he stored and reject all those that show the slightest sign of disease. 4.—Store the potatoes according to size, putting large, medium, and small (chats) into separate stacks. Very small, mis-shaped, and diseased potatoes should he cooked and given to pigs and poultry. 5.—When stacking, slightly sprinkle powdered quicklime and flowers of sul- phur, among the tubers to prevent the spread of disease. These chemicals do not injure the edible qualities of the potatoes. fi- Potatoes for seed should be stored in a dry place and protected from the cold. Copies of the leaflet giving full inform- ation may be obtained from the Food Pro- duction Department. 72, Victoria street, S.W.I.

A "CAP"-ITAL ATTRACTION. I What is the great excitement in Yauhan street this week F Is the draw the new Intermediate School caps ? We can quite understand it being so, as the new cap is a decided improvement on the old one. There is quite a Cymric element about it with the rampant Red Dragon beautifully embroidered on a Welsh green ground, and a ribbon twisted into three sections bearing the words: "Bydd Bur," "Bydd Eigwir," "Bydd lawn." This design has been registered at Somerset House, and is the work of our genial friend, Mr. T. Rhys Davies, Emlyn House.

I What Shall They Read ?
I What Shall They Read ? FREEDOM OF OPINION. (By Orion). At the last' meeting of the Burry Port Council some discussion took place anent newspapers which the Council had been asked to place in the library. Mr. John Davies rightly wanted to know what those papers were which the Labour Council desired to see in the reading room. "We must be careful," he re- marked, "what we give the public to read." There is much truth in that statement. These are days when there is a. variety of literature available. The longer the war lasts the more "various" becomes the "literature," and the more insidious the nature of some of it. There are papers on the market to-day which ought to be suppressed. Why ? Not bc- cause our conception of "freedom of opinion" has become dangerously con- servative, but because, in the public in- j terest—and the national weal—people should not be fed on deliberate lies, cross f -d perversions of our war aims, an d a general licence-not liberty—of cantank- erous piffle. Let the case for "the other side" be presented fairly, justly, with due deference to the opposing conten- tions, and all will be well The people will chose—and we have confidence in their choice. But "liberty of opinion" does not cover nor include suppression, exaggeration, perversion. There is news I which cannot be told, there is information which must be withheld, because—there is an enemy without. More, I There is an enemy within. I We are not referring to that kind of news, but to statements which appear in a certain type of paper. These are state- ments to the effct that Germany is ready to make terms, that she is ready to give up Belgium, etc., and that, therefore, we —note the "we"—should not prolong the war by turning deaf ears or blind eyes to I these things. That sort of "argument" should not be placed before the people (not because we do not understand liberty or freedm) but because the British working man should not be fed on—Lies » Bigotry. We heartily concur with Dr. J. H. Williams that "bigotry is the greatest creator of infidels." Bigotry is indeed re- sponsible for more evils than we should care to enumerate. But-and Dr. Wil- liams will agree—it is not bigotry to keep blatant inexactitudes (to say the least and mildest) from the minds of thinking men and women. There are periods in history—now is one of them— when suppression is safety and censor- ship sanity. We realize the extreme care with which both functions should be exercised, and it is easy to descend to bigotry, unfairness, injustice and even wilful deception by means of deliberately conceived secrecy. Let those who wish to read that which is not true, let those who desire to in- culcate the doctrines of half-baked cranks do so—themselves Let them buy their papers and read them and "profit" there- by But, in the name of justice, in fairness to the man in the street, let these pernicious wares, these scum pro- ducts of a hypocritical "literature" be kept apart from the masses, and confined to those regions where they find a gross- ly consonant atmosphere. We agree that bigotry is an evil to be avoided. We agree also that "we must be careful what we give the public to read." V. e, therefore, strongly urge the people of Burry Port to think carefully about. some of the contentions which they will mret in these papers we have referred to. A man has a perfect right to read what he likes. At the same time he owes it to himself and to the subject about which he happens to be reading to see to it that he begins not upon a false basis, building there on an intellectual superstructure j which shall (immediately) place him in a tangled morass of fundamental error, and (ultimately) misdirect his mind along those channels which lead to chaos, dis- union, unrest—and Bigotry

The committee decided to accede to the application on condition that Dr. Doig, the medical offi- cer, was not called up for military ser- vice. A strong protest was made by Ald. C. M. Williams against the Board of Con- trol's refusal to consent to the erection of machinery in the new laundry, upon which £7,000 had been expended, and which was held up for the lack of £ 2,000 to provide the machinery. A deputation was appointed to interview the board.

=- I Women Police I I THEIR WORK AT THE FACTORIES. I I An interesting report has just been published on the work of the Women Police Service. Members of this service are by now familiar figures in the Llan- elly and Pembrey district, where they are employed in a certain factory. In the munition factories the women police act as guards, and their work in- cludes the checking of the entry of women into the factory, the examination of passes, searching for contraband, such as matches, cigarettes, and alcohol, and patrolling the neighbourhood for the pro- tection of women going home from work. At one factory the military and the male police guard have been withdrawn. The factory employs several thousand women in the manufacture and disposal of some of the most dangerous explosives demand- ed by the war. lyheii an air raid is in progress the operatives aie cleared from the factory, and the sheds and magazines are left to the sole charge of the firemen and policewomen, who take up the sta- tions allotted to them. Not a woman has failed at her post or shirked her duty in the hour of danger. At another factory the force of policewomen now number 160, all of whom have been sworn in and take the entire charge of all police cases deal- ing with women.

PROBLEMS OF THE EARLY CLOS!NC ORDER, The Order for the earlier closing of shops is providing magistrates with an unceasing stream of legal problems, and the attempt to discover what may and what may not be sold after hours is driving shopkeepers to distraction.
