Proposed Joint Hospital.I
Proposed Joint Hospital. I POSITION OF THE HCHAL COCNCTL. At the meeting of the Rural District Council uii Thursday the Chairman (Mr. W. Y. Nevill) reported that along with Mr. John he attended the joint con- ference regarding the proposed Joint Isolation Hospital. It was thought at the conference that the best course was to make the necessary preparations to proceed with, the erection of the hospital after the war, and that in the meantime a site should be fixed upon and also that the estimates should be gone into. Be- fore that was done he v. islu-d the Rural Councillors to decide whether they were prepared to co-operate with other ecouiiell,s or not. The Clerk explained that the repre- sentation on the proposed joint Board would be as follows:-3 ex-officio mem- bers and 4 elective members from the Llanelly Borough, 3 from the Llanelly Rural, and one from Burry Port. The Chairman said the, cost would be according to the assessment of the dif- ferent parishes. He presumed the ex- officio members were meant to be the Mavor and Chairmen of the respective Councils for the time being. Mr "Waddell: Would the representatiou be in after years according to assess- ment ? The Clerk: No, if you fix the number now you will have to get the Order amended if you want the representation changed, but that is a very small matter as it is only a Local Government Board order after all. The Medical Officer (Dr. E. Evans) said he thought it would be very wise to join the other two Councils provided they were reasonable. It was for the Rural Council to see that they were on equal terms with the ether Councils. The Council having discussed the terras relative to the present Borough Isolation Hospital in private, it was de- cided on the motion of Mr. John, seconded by Mr. Griffith Harry, to join the two other Councils subject to certain conditions regarding the present Borough Isolation Hospital. The Chairman said that the Rural Council's representatives also discussed with the Borough Council the charges for the three Tumble typhoid patients who had been removed from Tumble School to the Llanelly Borough Isolation Hospital. At first the Borough Council wanted ten guineas a week, although the Rural Council provided the nurses and every- thing else apart from the caretaker and light. The Borough Council were asked to reduce the charge to 5 guineas per week, and their representatives pro- mised to discuss the matter with the Sanitary Committee. The Clerk reported that since then he had received a letter from the Borough Council agreeing under the circum- stances to reduce the charge to the nominal sum of 7 guineas per week. After some discussion, it was decided to instruct the Clerk to negotiate with the Borough Council with a view to a farther reduction.

GENERAL SMUTS.- - - I
GENERAL SMUTS. I To the Editor of the "Star." I Sir, General Smuts, who is one of the few statesmen to-day with a vision, has de- livered some speeches bearing the mark of real wisdom. Although a master of the art of war, he hates it, and sets his highest hopes upon the peaceful develop- men of the world. "War," he asserts: "Is man made, and must be undone by the intelligence of man." He ridicules the idea that problems of Peace should not be discussed until after the war, and says that if one-hundredth part of the says that if one t thought that has been given to the war were given to schemes of Peace, we should never see another war. This war may have created a passion for Peace, which will in the end prove stronger jhan the passion for war. I am, -tc., f. T. E. DAVIES. rrimsaran, AYlES, October 39-h, 0- U j _tJ., J.Å

Husband's Application - I
Husband's Application I A man 65 years of age, formerly em- ployed as a labourer, and now obliged to stay at home to look after his wife, asked the Board of Guardians on Thurs- day to receive her into the infirmary. Lady Howard said that if the man was I obliged to stay at home to look after his wife he too would become a pauper. At j the present time it was difficult to find i any outside help. I Mr. Pugh said the Board would inevit- ably have to support both unless some- thing was done for the woman. The Chairman asked whether the woman could not be admitted to the town hospital. Lady Howard:, That is more for in- jured persons and operations. Mr. Pugh This brings us face to face with the necessity of making provision for the admission of such cases. Lady Howard: When we get a new infirmary the position will be relieved. It was decided to admit the woman to the infirmary.

I Old W els Melodies I — + — BOROUGH MEMBER AND THE CYMANFA. I A very successful cvmanfa ganu was I' held at Carmarthen last week, the con- l ductor being Mr. John Thomas, Llanelly. I Speaking at the evening gathering, Mr. Llewelyn Williams, M.P., dealt with Welsk music, and said that there was nothing to touch the oM Welsh melodies (alawon) although there were some very iino modern compositions. Among the tunes sung at the national cymanfa at Aberystwyth and Birkenhead there were none of greater merit and grandeur than the "alawon Cymreig"—that was the considered opinion of a high authority on music given him some time ago. It was no wonder, therefore, that the melodies were so popular at singing fes- tivals. The "cymanfa" had done a great deal for choral singing in Wales. Referring to Mr. Williams' remarks, Mr. John Thomas said he recalled that, when the Llanelly Royal Choir (of which he was conductor) was touring America their concert audience at a certain town was composed entirely of Dutch people. The choir gave the choruses of some of the great masters, but they all left the audience cold—there was not a spark of enthusiasm among them, and it was only the singing of the Welsh airs "Ar hyd y nos" and "Harlech" that first stirred enthusiasm, and after that it was kept up to the end of the programme.
