Evans, The Graig, and' a member of the permanent staff at Pare Howard Red Cross Hospital, had a very enthusiastic reception on her return to duty after having received a decoration personally from the King at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday. Some 14 wounded soldiers drove in cars to meet Nurse Evans at the Graig, where a laurel wreath was placed upon her head, and she was then carried through a triumphal arch of crutches to a decorated car :?d 0rinm through the town to the gates of the hospital. Here, w?;"m weiccme awaited Nurs? Evans from other of the patients and ¡ members ?lic' staff. The decoration *s given for devotion to duty, and it has been thoroughly earned in this case. The O.C.. staff and t'aps are justly proud i of Nurse Evans a ad the honour she has won. I

IN 001 A ""e-J. iM(9;' School Attectfasce. — I RE-ARRANGEMENT OF THE DISTRICT. At the meeting of the Borough Edu- cation Committee on Wednesday evening the Chairman (Coun. D. R. Jones) pre- siding, the question of school attendance was again discussed. The Chairman explained that under the existing arrangement Mr. Walter Williams had 3,786 children to look after in his district, while Mr. John Thomas had 2,861. It had been suggested that by re-arranging the schools allocated to the respective districts Mr. Williams would have 2,976 children to attend to, while Mr. Thomas would have 3,671. Conn. W. Powell Rees: What was the number of children in the schools when the two attendance officcrs assumed their duties. The Clerk replied that there was very little difference. Replying to Ald. H. D. Rees, the Chair- man said the committee thought the at- tendances at the schools were not satis- factory, and the object of the discussion was to ascertain whether the schools could be re-arranged or whether it was advisable to appoint an additional at- tendance officer. In further reply to C-oiin. Powell Rees, the Clerk said the number of children on the registers in 1902 was 5,901, and at present it was 6,600. Ald. Rees: Is it the opinion of this Committee that the monthly half holiday granted for good attendance has been a failure ? The Chairman: I don't think so. Ald. Rees: Well, is the fact that the average attendance is not high Que to illness or circumstances over which we have no control P The Chairman There has been a com- plaint that one of the attendance officers does not discharge his duties as thoroughly as he should. Coun. J. L. Jones pointed out that I the officer in question had seven schools to look after, whereas the other officer only had four. Conn. W. E. Clement: What is the average attendance at the schools now compared with the time when we in- stituted the monthly half-holiday ? The Clerk The average attendance now i is 88 per cent. In'1913 it was 86 per] cent:, in 1914, 81 per cent., in 1915, 87 per cent., and in 1916, 87 per cent. Conn. Clement: So that the monthly half-holiday has been a success ? The Clerk Undoubtedly, as the at- tendance has improved. Coun. J. Walter Thomas said the question was whether the attendance officers were over burdened with work. If so, the committee were losing a consider- able sum annually because assuming the attendance could be improved by 2 per cent. the increased grant would more than compensate them for appointing an additional attendance officer. Personally he thought it would pay the committee to appoint another officer. Ald. Roes said that before any such decision was arrived at he thought the committee should be provided with a re- turn showing the average attendances ot each school for the year. Such a return would, he felt sure, be a revelation to them. Why as attendance at the Roman Catholic School and New Dock so compared with the other schools Coun. Clement: What extra grant would we get for an additional 1 per ceiit in the attendance ? The Clerk: About £20. Replying to Coun. J. Walter Thomas, i the Clerk said the average attendance in England was 92 per cent. I Coun. Clement: It would be just as well to give the attendance officers a holiday when the school attendance reaches a certain percentage (laughter). Coun. Walter T homas said that if the members looked around their respective localities they would find there were children who did not attend any school. The Chairman said the best attendance officer the committee could have would he another school nurse who would have visit the homes and she would know whether the children were ill or not. Ald. Rees: That is a good suggestion. After further discussion. Ald. Joseph Roberts proposed that the schools be so re-arranged that one officer would have 3,345 children to iook after, while the other would have 3,292, and also that the officers should change districts for a period of three months. Coun. J. L. Jones seconded, and this was agreed to.

I Engineer and the County Tribunal I INTERESTING LOCAL CASE. At the sitting of the County Tribunal at Llanelly on Thursday, Lieut. Ingrains appealed against the exemption granted by the Borough Tribunal to A. C. Richmond, Victoria Engineering Works. Mr. Hayton Williams represented the respondent. "I think this will be of great interest to Capt. Cremlyn and the Chairman," said Richmond in handing in a list of work in hand for .the French Govern- ment. Mr. Williams: WThat have you to say to the suggestion that you do the clerical work ?--It is all bunkum. Do you do any clerical work at all ?— No, except the drawings and estimates. .Respondent said his father was 77 years of age, and there were at present only eight men employed at the foundry as compared with 30 before the war. A letter was read from Mr. Richmond stating that his son was a partner and manager of the firm which was chiefly en- gaged in agricultural engineering work. Capt. Cremlyn: Where did you serve your time ?-I seryed 5 years apprentice- ship with my father. How long has this business been es- tablished ?—About 30 years. You have never been engaged anywhere else ?—No, as my father is one of the best engineers in the country. It has been suggested that you are a clerk and not a practical engineer ?—I turn the cylinder and my forte is the manufacture of agricultural implements. How long has your brother been with you ?-He is not with us now, he is at Nobels. How is. it that your brother has left your foundry ?-Thtt is not a fair ques- tion to put to me. Your brother had a protection card wherea.s you did not ?—That is so. I suggest that the reason is that your brother is an engineer while you are not? —That is not the case. Was your eldest brother a partner in the firm ?-No. If you are a practical agricultural en- gineer why didn't you describe it as such ?—Because I considered the man- agement of business was sufficiently im- ,,Gi-tant. "Why, the very bread you eat." said Richmond, "is from the granaries that I have assisted to maintain by the manu- faeture of the implements. I was the uist man to introduce the potato digger to this district, That was years ago, and it is one of the most ingenious machines ever invented. I mn'ng(,ni.oii, riiaebilies wore awarded the silver medal for oil engines." Tho military appeal was dismissed. _n:>
SALARIES OF TEACHERS. I
SALARIES OF TEACHERS. The Chairman (Coun. D. R. Jones) at the meeting of the. Borough Education j Ccmmttcc on Wednesday evening, ex- • plained that the meeting was convened in accordance with a resolution to con- rider the revision of the teachers' scale of salaries, but it had transpired that the representatives of the teachers were un- aide to.attend that night. AV. E. Clement suggested that before the meeting to revise the scale was held the Clerk should be authorised to get details of the scales and conditions that applied in neighbouring towns and that these be circularized amongst the members. This suggestion was agreed to. w. agreed to.

: Lectures on Food Economy…
Lectures on Food Economy —— —— I LIVELY DEBATE AT THE EDUCATION COMMITTEE. At the meeting of the Borough Educa- tion Committee on Wednesday evening, a letter ,was read from Mr. Aubrey, the secretary of the local Food Control Com- mittee stating that his committee at a meeting held on November 30th, unani- mously decided to. approach the Educa- tion authority with the view of their undertaking to make the necessary ar- rangements whereby the managers of the various schools and others interested might address the scholars at the various schools while the cookery mistress might deliver lectures to mothers and daughters conserving the most economical and bene- ficial methods of cooking under the ex- isting circumstances. The Clerk Members of this committee I addressed the schools on food economy in June or July last while Miss Daw along with Miss Havard visited the schools and addressed mothers, but very few attended Ald. H. D. Rees proposed that what-, ever could be done should be done to meet with the Food Control Committee's views. Coun. J. Hughes: The people are ab- solutely sick of this nonsense. The authorities are doing everything except j the right thing. The people are anxious that they should be rationed; why quibble about it ? Coun. W\ E. Clement: To address people on food economy when it takes us all our time to get food is absurd. Coun. J, Walter Thomas said the ob- ject was to avoid extravagance. Coun. Hughes: There is no extrava- gance I can assure you, especially now that the prices are so high. Coun. Clement: Not in the circles that would be covered by our schools at any rate. Mrs. Phillips: I was present at the meeting of the Food Control Committee when it wus deeded to forward this letter to this authority. They asked Miss Daw if she was prepared to lecture again on food economy, and she replied that sub- ject to the sanction of the Education Committee she was prepared to.do any- thing she could in this direction. Coun. Clement: I think that that part of the programme can be carried out very well, but I cannot imagine myself ad- dressing the mothers residing in the New Dock district for instance on food economy. Coun. J. L. Jones I quite agree with you. To see the queues waiting outside the shops for foodstuff is sufficient in itself. Ald. H. D. Rees said the least thing the Committee could do was to support the views of the Food Control Committee. The Chairman (Coun. D. R. Jones): But isn't there a possibility of over-doing it ? Afd. Rees I don't see any harm in it. You will not aggravate the position hy delivering addresses. Mrs. Phillips explained that all the Food Control Committee wanted was that the managers should be present at the schools when Miss Daw was delivering her lecture. I Coun. J. Walter Thomas: The ques- tion is "What are we going to talk about ? Conn. Clement: First of :111 you must tel} thorn not. to cat too butter (laughter) Coun. J. L. Jones: Or sugar, when they cannot get it (renewed laughter). Ald. R. P. Thomas: I am inclined to support Ald. Rees provided he agrees to writing to Sir A. Yapp to send us down a few sides of bacon (more laughter). In the end it was decided to assent to Miss Daw delivering lectures at the I schools, and that a representative of the Committee should attend the lectures.

HOLIDAY FOOTBALL AT STRADEY.I
HOLIDAY FOOTBALL AT STRADEY. I The JIOnmOl;,Ihi:. Regiment team, I who are to play a charity match with Llanelly on Xmas Day, are attracting -considerable attention in Rugby circles these days. The team, which includes several internationals, has an excellent record to date, having scored 170 points to 7, whilst their line has not yet been creased. This speaks volumes of their defensive powers while their attack is evidently very effective also, for against the Liverpool Scottish team which in- cluded four internationals, they recently ,,(,or(,d 2 ,,)a I t,) nii scored 2 goal* (1 dropped) 3 trins to nil. Mr. E. E. Bailey, who is discharging the duties of secretary in a. manner which is certain to ensure success from a finan- cial point c T> icw, hopes to get a strong team out in opposition to the soldiers. The ticket0 are already selling like hot cakes and every sportsman should, if only ..S a matter of patriotic duty, buy one.

I I The Tribunal. I — I ANOTHER BATCH OF-APPEALS: I A meeting of the Borough Tribunal was held on Thursday evening when the Mayor (Aid. D. James Davies) presided. Thirteen hours a day. A man named Hd. Walters applied for a re-hearing, and in 'answer to Lieut. Ingrams said that three weeks ago he j was ordered to join the V.B. but he had not enrolled. He explained that he was a boot repairer and worked 13 hours a day. Lieut. Ingrams: You are only thinking cf your own pocket and nothing else. Walters: That is not so; I could live on less. I consider that I am making a sacrifice by working such long hours. Lieut. Ingrams You are your own em- ployer and you must be prepared to spare an hour a week for the V.B. If you were not in B 2 I would press to get you in Section B. The application was refused. Referred to Colliery Tribunal. I Gwilym Evans, who was represented by Mr. Hayton Williams, said he was em- ployed by the. Trimsaran Colliery Co., prior to which he was engaged as a fire- man at the ow." Lodge Tinplate Works. The Mayor: You are not in a certfied occupation because you were not en- gaged at the colliery before August, 191,L Mr. Williams: Were you bc-fore the Tribunal twelve months ago ?—Yes. And you were granted exemption pro- vided you did work of national import- ance ?—Yes. The Clerk Have vou got your papers ? —No. The Clerk: Then you are giving us the maximum amount of trouble by com- pelling us to refer back. Mr. Williams said the man. who was a crane driver, had not been combed out. Lieut. Ingrams: Then you ought to apply to the Collieries Tribunal. The Mayor: Are you certain where you were working before the war ? Evans: Yes, at Ponthenry Colliery. The Mayor In that case you are in a certified occupation. Lieut. Ingrams If a man goes from a colliery to another trade and then re- turns to the colliery he is not to be re- garded as being in a certified occupation. The Tribunal adjourned the case for a month to enable an application to be made to the Collieries Tribunal. A t-utmy Goitvjiueiice. I J. iicivis i'iiiliips appeared oil iA- half oi xienrv J. Junes (bo), a nnuvieu mail who was employed as a baiier. Appellant a-sked that the terms of his exemption 'should be varied. Mr Phillips said the man was physical- ly uuiit to join the Volunteer Battalion. Lieut. Ingrams As he has been classi- fied for .'Section D, I suggest that he be 'I examined by Dr. Avails who is the doctor. Evans said he had received a calling-rp I notice. Lieut. Ingrams: Then you have no I light to make this application. t Evans: But i put in my appeal • r j Ú.J. t.Á 1-' 1- ). --i 1 received that. ) Lit ut. Ingraifts: The appeal was put j in Oil Nov. 30th, and the calling up notice bears the same date. This is an [ extremely funny co-incidence. Adjourned to enable the man to be examined by Dr. Evans. Had seven children. I In the case of Albert J. Thomas, Mr. Leslie Williams appeared. Thomas said he was 3S years of age and had seven children. The Old Castle Tinplate Co. wrote to say that Thomas, who was a. mason, was irreplaceable,and the Company were doing work of national importance. Mr. Williams pointed out that ,the man's wife was in the hospital, and his eldest child was only 11 years old. The Tribunal adjourned the case for three months. "That's very goad." In the case of Wm. Thomas, Borough Stores, Mr. J.- Lewis Phillips appeared, and sa.id his client was 41 years of age, and was a fish, fruit and potato dealer. Thorns stated that he was in section D of the V.B., but was putting in four drills a week. If necessary he was pre- pared to join Section B. Lieut. Ingrams: That's very good. ç: The Tribunal ordered Thomas to join Section B of the V.B. A Youthful Stationmaster. The case of Brinley Walters (18). a stationmaster in the employ of the Mynydd Mawr Railway Co., said itat. since the last meeting of the Tribunal he had been passed Class A. Adjourned pending an application by the Company to another Tribunal.
.The Housing Problem.
The Housing Problem. I (By T. E. Davies, Trimsaran). One cf the social problems after the wpr is that of house accommodation. We find the most terrible over-crowding in the houses that already exist in the mining districts of South Wales. There is scarcely any attempt to build garden villages with allotments adjoining them. W e hear of new schemes of development under which building on new land will be something like ten houses to the acre. Mr. Hayes Fisher, in his speech the other, day, indicated a great building scheme after the war, by which 300,000 houses would be erected, and the cost of each house and the land adjoining would be something like £ 300 per house. He suggested that of the ninety million pounds this would entail, the State would advance one-third—thirty million pounds, and what he proposed was that this enor- mous sum, which is to be provided out or the National Revenue, should be handed over to local authorities to assist them in building houses.. Ccst of the land. I If we take South W ales, we find that the demand for land by the local authori- ties is increasing its value, and that for land rated at £ 2 per acre something like £1,000 per acre is demanded when it is required for building purposes. Assum- ing that this great demand for 300,000 new houses puts up the value of land everywhere to £ 1,000 an acre—where do they find themselves ? They build ten houses to an acre of land, they pay £ 1,000 for the land—. £ 200 for the build- ing of each house and £ 100 for the laad -£100 to the owner who has done noth- ing—exactly the amount of the State subsidy. The State subsidy would go into the pocket of the landowner, and neither the local authority nor the per- son who inhabited the house v-ould be a penny better off. Three hundred thousand new houses is a large estimate, but to meet the position sufficiently. 300,000 are not enough. About one-third of the people of this country are badly housed. Hence fifteen million cf people are not properly housed, and that means not 300.000 houses, but three million. Amd now the Government is going to hand over the State subsidy of £ 100 per house to the landholders for the mere privilege of building houses for the soldiers who have defended this land, and the workers who supplied the munitions of war.

TRANSFERS TO THE H.E. SCHOOL. The Clerk (Mr. If or W. Watliins) at the meeting of the Borough Education Committee on Wednesday evening re- ported that 3Ir. E. Denbigh Jones, the headmaster of the Higher Elementary School, had requested that arrange- ments should be made whereby the scholars could be transferred from the elementary schools to the Higher Ele- mentarv School immediately- after the Xmas holidays instead of a fortnight later. Ald. H. D. Rees Do you see any ob- jection to it ? The Cleric: No Fir. It was decided to adopt the sugges- tion.

register a larger number of customers than his staff or premises will permit him to serve with reasonable promptitude, and where found necessary the days and hours at which customers will be supplied will be determined. It will be necessary that the local Food Committee shall have control of the supplies of all the com- modities available in the city, so that each retailer may receive neither more nor less than the quantities needed to .cover the requirements of his registered customers. If the scheme receives the approval of Lord Rhondda steps will be taken to put it into operation on January 1st. PUBLIC HALL FOR BURRY PORT, There has been an informal exchange of opinions as to the most suitable war memorial at Burry Port. The local War Funds Committee are doing magnificent work for the lads in khaki and it has been suggested to us that later on, this Committee should take up the question of providing a permanent war memorial in the town. We do not know what the view of the committee would be or what would be their opinion as to the best form of memorial. May we suggest, however, that a commodious Public Hall would not only be a worthy memorial, but also meet a great want in the place. With the exception of the Parish Hall, which is altogether too small for the purpose, there is no building in Burry Port avail- able for public gatherings. Every con- cert at the Parish Hall furnishes an ob- ject lesson on the need of a building capable of accommodating, say, a thou- sand people. The mining villages of Pontyberem, Cross Hands, and Tumble, are able to boast of public halls. Surely what can be done in these villages can be accomplished in Burry Port. Why not a Memorial Hall for Burry Port ?
