I '1' 1 Assurance Workers 1 i DEMAND BETTER CONDITIONS. I A meeting was held on Thursday at the Old Town Hall, under the auspices of the National Amalgamated Union of Life Assurance Workers, when there was a re- presentative gathering of agents and col- lectors of the Llanelly district. The Chairman addressed the meeting, and explained the position and the object of the Union at present, which was to de- mand better conditions, etc., for the Assurance worker, and emphasized the fact that unity of action was imperative. Great enthusiasm was manifested at the meeting, and this resulted in ten of those present being at once affiliated to the Union. The feeling prevailing amongst the members in favour of united action is steadily on the increase, and another meeting has been arranged for 4 p.m. on Thursday next. All Assurance workers j zm cordially invited to attend. i At the close of the meeting the follow- ing resolution was proposed and carried unanimously:—"That this meeting of Agents and Collectors of various Com- panics and Friendly Societies at Llanelly and district do heartily endorse the policy of the National Union of Life Assurance workers in demanding better all round positions for the assurance workers, even if it becomes necessary to 'down tools.'

THE VICTGRY HEOCE. I Mr. James Morgan writes :—To-day the amount of the collection is jE18 10s. 5d. Thanks in part to my holiday, the Hedge has improved and deserves to be re- visited. An under-estimate of the ambi- tion of the Hedge has been made. We shall not be satisfied with anything like P,25, and if the public will only be as charitably true as the Hedge will be made personally attractive, I shall have pleasant and confident hopes for a sub- stantial sum. Special thanks are due to Mrs. Divid Williams.

It is Said -0
It is Said -0 That a stout woman entering a crowded Bynea car on Monday took hold of a strap directly in front of a man seatrd in the corner. That jerked by the car starting she trod heavily on his toes. That the excruciating pain he suffered immediately reminded him of the rules of etiquette. That nevertheless he offered the lady his seat more in self-defence than for the sake of etiquette, That some hair-raising screams were I heard in Cowell street on Monday even- ing. That the nervous young lady on the motor-cycle carrier is not likely to take that uncomfortable position again for some time. That her friend should have taken her on his lap in the side-car. That the adventures of two local sports who accompanied the Scarlets to Bath on Saturday would be very interesting copy. That as life was rather slow for the "young bloods" at Bath, they transferred their activities to Bristol, and oh what did "hubby" say ? That through some mis-understanding, some fellows missed their fun on Monday. That all had arranged to be present at a wedding-the attraction being the bridesmaids. That through someone's mistake they presented themselves at the wrong church That ultimately they arrived at the right place just to see the wedded couple leaving. What a shame? That a young lady clerk (?) employed at a lawyer's office is very angry with the "It is saidist" for publishing a cer- tain statement in this column. That at the same time she confides in us that her latest b-hoy has some very peculiar ways, and during osculation has a tendency to be "sloppy." -Oh Jenny. That a youth at a recent dance caused much gossip by his marked attentions to one of the ladies. That he stolidly refused to dance with any but his first choice. That some young fellows seemed deter- mined to play the goat at a local cinema on Tuesday. That every picture humorous and path- etic drew forth their ridiculous mirth. That 'twere better were they in future to consider their neighbours as well as themselves. That soft and soothing strains were wafted on the breezes in Stepney street oil Monday morning. That judging from these entrancing airs a splendid ladies choir could be formed at the well at a local millinery establishment. That all kinds of horse vehicles are not comfortable for travelling. That the gambo for instance is not a dignified mode of transit for young flap- pers. That perhaps the party who thus journeyed from Burry Port on Wednes- day think otherwise. That one "youngster" has nearly lost his heart to a fair shop assistant. That with a view to effecting an intro- duction he entered the shop to make a small purchase. That even then he did not have the courage to broach the subject of an ap- pointment. That a Seaside young lady did a queer thing lately. That she walked into a neighbours house and asked if they had heard the latest and then walked out again. That it afterwards transpired she had just heard the latest—her young man's whistle. That a local steelworkcr has been rather reckless with h is "pelf" lately. That he proudly offered odds on Swan- j sea beating Llanelly to-day. That it was rather unkind of one of his friends to accept his offering-thus show- j up his financial positon. i

Llanelly Cinema. On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, the star picture will be "Madam Sphinx," featuring Alma Rubens. The story is very good and the soenos in the Parisian underworld, are excellent. Alma RubenS as "Celeste" the girl who risks her good name to clear up the mystery gives a fine performance, and the hundred and one small parts are well handled. "His Wife's Friend" is a very fine Mark Sennett Qomedy. "A Fight for Millions" (epis- ode 3) is most interesting. On Thursday, Frday, "Lads of the Village," featuring Jimmie Learmouth, as Erb V.C. Every soul in Beecheron was out on the Village Green to welcome Erb V.C. Erb and his comrade Beft rode from Farley Junction in Farmer Wursel's oart, and were borne to the green in triumph. When the Rec- tor had made the presentation he called on Erb for the description of the deed. But Erb fled bashfully to the backyard for a lover's talk with Sally, and it was Capt. Clement of the heroic lad's battalion who told how Erb had saved his life and de- livered his dispatches. Wallace Reid ap- pears in the "House of Silence," a thrill- ing drama in which a wealthy clubman is called into a mysterious house where a murder has been committed. A hatpin is found and with this clue, the clubman ) finds the woman slayer. "The Circus King," episode 14, is very thrilling. Mon- day, Sept. 29th, and during the week the 7th part of the "Adventures among the Cannibals" will be screened.

LlanelSyite in OdessaI 10-…
LlanelSyite in Odessa I 10 -» TERRIBLE STORY OF BOLSHEVIST I ATROCITIES. Further details have now oome to hand of the reign of terror established in Odessa by the Bolshevists. When the City fell into the hands of Lenin's men, all foreigners had to fly for their lives, among them being Mr D. J. Howells, a well-known Llanellyite who has been a resident there for many years. The Terror raged in Odessa with pecu- liar ferocity. Five thousand persons were executed during the two and a half months by Terrorist Commissions. When after the city's liberation the Volunteer Army authorities entered the headquar- ters of one such Commission, they found the floor caked in sticky blood, and had to cover it with sand before they could walk on it. I Whole quarters were frequently en- circled by Soviet troops. All those found in the streets were examined, and on the slighte.stsuspicion would be haled off for execution. Starvation and epidemics added to the horror. Bread cost 130 roubles a pound, and latterly was hardly to be had because a rising of German colonists in the surrounding districts cut off supplies from the town. Cholera raged, carrying off as many as 200 victims daily, and as almost the only food obtain- able waa tomatoes and melons, it was im- possible to stay the epidemic. The water supply broke down, and towards the end stopped entirely, so that the wretched population had to go down in thousands to try to get water from the wells on the shore. A Successful Rising. The Bolshevist regime in Udessa, wmcn at first was comparatively mild, de- veloped into a bestial reign of horror. In these conditions a few officers of the Volunteer Aimy and a few civilians bravely organised a conspiracy to over- throw the assassins. They could estab- lish no connexion with friends outside. They had to recruit volunteers, raise money, and buy over Soviet units entire- ly by their own efforts. They tried to defer the rovoltkuntil the approach of the Volunteer Army, but In- complete failure of the water supply and the arrest of several leaders of the con- spiracy compelled them to act suddenly, and on the morning of August 25th they opened fire on the quarters of the chief Terrorist Commission. The Bolshevists gave orders to their batteries to open a volley, but only ono battery fired, and that against the Bolshevists themselves All the Soviet batteries had gone over to the conspirators. When the Jewish Com- missaries realized that they could not de- pend on the troops they took to hurried flight, but scores of them were caught. Within a few hours all the prisoners in the hands of the Terrorist Commissions were liberated, released officers took com- mand of their units, and the town was delivered. The Volunteer Army force, although ignorant of the rising, landed west of the port that evening, and en- tered Odessa to find their work already done. The Bolshevists plundered the town with amazing thoroughness, robbing whole blocks of houses of their furniture and dispatching it in trains northwards.
