Victory Lo?n. THE CAMPAIGN IN LLANELLY. I Mr. S. Glynne Jones, who 'has been appointed Commissioner for Wales in connection with War Savings, delivered a stirring address at a meeting of the Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday. All were agreed, he said, as to the im- perative need for stabilising the national finances. The success of the Victory Loan would mean a great gain to trade and commerce, and he believed it would be a substantial step towards reconstruc- tion. The whole national debt of the country before the war was due to 345,000 persons—just a select few of the wealthy people of the country. He thought that was a dangerous condition of affairs. What was the position to- day ? The national debt was a personal concern to over 20 millm people of this country, which made in very large measure for national stability (applause) We had taught millions of people to save who had never saved before. Last week, in the quiet times, without any special eifort going on, 12 million War Savngs Certificates were sold. The schools in Llanelly, week in, week out, were selling about 2,000 War Savings Certificates (applause). On the last two occasions Llanelly raised over £ 1,400,000, but there were towns far less prosperous than Llan- elly now aiming at a quota of L15 per head. He appealed to the employers to co-operate with their workmen to ensure ?. successful campaign. The Mayor (Coun. Dan Williams, J.P.) said he would like to see Llanelly coming out on top if possible.
