Board of Guardians.I
Board of Guardians. I I A meeting of the Board of Guardians was held on Thursday, Mr. W. Y. Nevill presiding. The Infirmary Field. I The Clerk (Mr. D. C. Edwards) said that only one tender had been received for the use of the field bought by the Guardians for the purpose of erecting the new infirmary. The tender was from the old tenant, and he required it on the same terms as before. In reply to a member the Clerk said that th, field was let out as they would not require it for building purposes for eome time. It was decided to accept the tender. A Very Deserving Case. I The Clerk said that he had received. a reply from the Festioniog Union with re- ference to the resolution passed some time ago calling on them to support a pauper who was in the Llanelly area. The Festiniog Union offered 10s. a week. Rev. Roberts: I have seen this case and it is a very deserving one. The Clerk: We will have to add 2s. 6d. to this as we have decided to increase all paupers allowance by 25 per cent. Warn them I I Mr. Dd. Evans (Pembrey) enquired I whether a pauper on reaching the age of 70 was compelled to take old age pension. If they were they would lose their out- door relief which in the majority of cases was more than what they received from the Old Age Pensions. If they were not compelled to take old age pen- sion they should be warned, as many were under the impression that when they reached 70 years of age they had to take the old age pension and thus sacri- fice the out-door relief. The Clerk explained that this was op- tional. Mr. Dd. Brans: Well, warn them The Clerk: Mr. Evans will tell them all (laughter). A Wonderful Invention. I Lady Howard voiced a complaint about .the hot water pipes at the Infirmary -whiob. she said were all choked up. Rev. Roberts: Whal is the matter with them ? Lady Howard: They are all choked up Mr. Dd. Evans: Then why don't you use Llynyfan water? (laughter). RaT. Roberts: I have heard of a won- derful invention regarding this, but I will not explain it in public. I wil do so privately. Rev. D. Davies: Yes, and tell the arohitect all about it
Lawyers and their Clerks
Lawyers and their Clerks LOCAL EMPLOYERS CRITICIZED. Several local legal firms came in for criticism at a public meeting at the Athenaeum Hall on Wednesday when Mr. Ben Griffiths, organizer of the Clerks Union, was the principal speaker. "The lawyers of Llanelly," he said, "have increased their charges 100 per cent., but they have not increased their clerks' salaries to that extent. Wehav-e men sitting on public bodies to-day, one of them being Mr. M. R. Richards who, when acting for the interest of Buckley's Brewery agrees to the Union scale, but objects to giving it to his own clerks. There again is Mr. Willie Davies, solici- tor, who objects to his clerks joining the Union. I hope the 'press' will make a note of this. I warn the lawyers that unless they send more reasonable bouquets to Card;ff there will be trouble brewing after the railway strike is over. Mr. Griffiths went on to advocate the formation of a joint wages board and the adoption of a scale of salaries similar to that already established for the colliery clerks of South Wales and Monmouth. He appealed to all those present to assist them in carrying out their schemes by becoming members of the N.U.C. A while ago there were 800. members in South Wales, and these were split into 11 branches. To-day they had 7,000 members and 52 branches. They had obtained the following rate for colliery clerks:— Junior clerks (16 years to 21 years), minimum 30s., rising by annual incre- ments of 10s per week per annum to R4 10s. a week; general clerks: minimum -24 5s. a week, rising by annual incre- ment of os. a week to £5 10s. a week; senior clerks: minimum jE4 15s. a week, rising by annual increments of 5s. a week to £ 6 5s.; chief clerk: minimum £6 5s. The minimum scale submitted to the employers in the Iron and Steel industry was:—Junior Clerks (16 to 21) minimum 92 10s. rising to £ 4 10s.; general clerks, minimum £4 10s. rising by annual incre- ments of 5s. a week to £6 15s.; first clerks, minimum JE6 15s., rising by an- nual increments of 7s. 6d. a week up to L8 15s.; chief clerk: minimum £8, rising by annual increments (Jf 10s. a week to £ 10 10s.; heads of department: minimum -210, rising by annual increment of 10s. a week to jS12 10s. At the close of the meeting a large number of new members were enrolled.

Sporting Gossip —.—
Sporting Gossip — — Once again the Scarlets have done the trick against the All Whites. It really looks as if the long run of cruel luck which dogged the footsteps of the 80s- parua against their old rivals has at last been broken and that a well-deserved run of successes is now in store for them. And so may it be. There waa a time when no follower of the Rugby game, however enthusiastic or optimistic he might have been, went down to Stradey to see a match between the Scarlets and the Whites without feeling that by some means or other, the Abertawe men were bound to come out on top. It might have been only a penalty goal, or a dropped goal or any of those unsatisfac- tory wins, which turned the tables; or, as was sometimes the case, the tinplaters had an "off-day." Be that as it may, the fact remains that, previous to last season, the Scarlets had not vanquished the Swansea men a single one for many a weary year. A Better Balanced Side. I Coming to last Saturday's game, it can be truthfully said that all fair-minded sportsmen pronounced the Scarlets de- cidedly lucky in winning by five points; but, on the other hand, the home team would have been distinctly unlucky to lose. In the general opinion, a draw would have been a more satisfactory re- sult; while some magnanimous sup- porters even go to the extent of giving Swansea the credit for being the better side. But is that a just conclusion to oome to ? True, territorially the Whites had the better of the tinplaters, but the latter displayed a wonderful knack of op- portunism amongst their backs, and were a slightly better balanced side than their opponents. Also the Scarlets fought desperately hard for the lead, to- wards the end, and the winning try, scored by Graham Davies was well earned. If the Scarlets had played throughout the game like they played in the first and the last ten minutes then Swansea would not have been in the pic- ture. The Scarlet Forwards. I One was surprised to see our forwards ) so badly beaten in the scrums. It is no exaggeration whatever to state that eight times out of every ten the Swan- sea backs had the ball thrown out to them. Fortunately for the Scarlets there was not that finished play about the Swansea backs as there was with our own, otherwise the visitors must have piled up a big score, notwithstanding the strong defence of the home men. However, a few more games together will doubtless work wonders with the pack and impart to them some of the ex- perience needed for scrummaging. Most of the men are quite young, and are capable of great things in the future. They will have to improve on last Satur- day's display when they visit St. Helen's or else disaster will assuredly befall the team. In the line outs, however, the Llanelly men asserted their superiority. A New Half. Fowler was badly missed at inside half. D. J. Bennett, who operated at the base of the scrum, time and again failed to get rid of the ball quick enough with the result that the Scarlet "threes" had no opportunity to get go- ing. In consequence of his somewhat in- different display, Bennett has been dropped for to-day's match against Neath, a trial being given to Percy Roberts, of the New Dock Stars, who has acquitted himself creditably during his Army career. The Third Line. As has been stated our threequarters were, on the whole, a .splendid quartette, and were easily the superior of their op-, ponents, but of course, had not many opportunities of shining. What they did have to do they did well. Brilliant Custodian. I Only one position now remains, and that is the full-back, where Hugh Jones gave a repetition of his previous display at Bath, and was never at fault. On the day's play he was superior to Bancroft, that is saying a lot. He had also a lot more work to do than the Swansea cus- todian, and always got out of a corner however tight. The Scarlets should notch another vic- tory to-day against Neath, as the men from Castellnedd have been exhibiting very feeble form lately. They are, how- ever, stern fighters and should provide a good game. Faced with the transport difficulties, the Soccer eleven succeeded in reaching Rogerstone by char-a-banc, to fulfil fin English Cup engagement, only to find on their arrival that the appointed referee had failed to put in an appearance, thus rendering the fixture abortive. The "Sos- pans," however, offered to play a friendly match with the home team, this being greeted with delight by the spec- tators present. The tricky play of the "Sospans" de- lighted all present and they won com- fortably by six goals to one. I Reserves Beaten. j The Reserves suffered defeat at the hands of the Swansea Amateurs at Half- way on Saturday by 4 goals to one. Owing to the strong counter attraction at Stradey there was only a small at- tendance. To-day's big encounter. I Llanelly meet Mid-Rhondda this after- noon in a Welsh League engagement, and Halfway should be the scene of a rare encounter. Both teams proudly boast of an unbeaten record, and the re- sult of the game is eagerly awaited. The "Mushrooms" are this season assisted by the services of several well-known players included in whom is Joe Bache, who won fame whilst playing with Aston Villa. j The Supporters Club is already getting busy in assisting the directors to remove that overhanging cloud-the debt-and for this purpose a prize drawing has been arranged in which attractive prizes are offered. A new secretary has been appointed in the person of Mr. Fred Taylor, brother of Councillor A. E. Taylor, Burry Port. Llanelly Tuesdays 15 points, Crosshands9 The "Tuesdays" visited Crosshands on Tuesday and defeated the home team by 3 converted goals to 3 tries. The game was fought at a hot pace, and the brilliant play of the visiting backs delighted a good crowd of specta- tors. During the early stages of the game tries were scored by J. D. Prytherch, H. Graham Davies, and Frank Evans, all being converted by Llew Bennett. After this reverse the home team put up a stiff defence which prevailed until the end of the game. Their forwards adopted the bustling game and succeeded in scoring 3 tries. Next Tuesdays Match. I The game between the Tuesdays and Tumble at Stradey next Tuesday is al- ready arousing considerable interest amongst the League enthusiasts, and the game should be well worth witnessing. The following is the team selected to represent the Tuesdays :-Full-back: D. J. Thomas, threequarters: Glyn Thomas, Idwal Thomas, W. Roberts, W.Griffiths, half-backs: Glan Thomas and Frank Evans; forwards, E. Marsh, Matt Jones, Morgan Davies, Joe Owen, Rhys Davies, D. J. Phillips, W. Bowen, W. Bowen, Dick Edmunds, Oli Davies,Idwal Davies. Admission, field 5d., stand 4d. extra, (including tax). Kick off 4 p.m. Any selectod players should inform the Sec. or Captain if unable to play. Reserves from the Seconds. I At the committee meeting of the Llan- elly 1st XV. on Monday last the follow- ing resolution was unanimously passed- "That the League and 2nd XV. be noti- fied that in future our reserves be chosen from the 2nd XV."
HIPPODROME. I "Top of the Bill" is the title of a musical comedy which will be presented at the above popular house of entertainment next week. The comedy is produced by Morris Flake and the caste includes some of the finest artistes that have visited the principality. This enchanting comedy will no doubt attract "crowded houses" and we would advise all patrons to book I in advance. The vaudeville turns in- clude Gus Bard, a musical eccentric, and Relwyshaw, the world famed wrestler, who won the world's championship at the great Olympic games. Mr. Isaacs deserves the congratulations of all his patrons for securing "Such an attractive programme.
DAY OF ATONEMENT.
DAY OF ATONEMENT. To-day is the last fast-day observed by Jews with the strictest solemnity aro ex- traordinary self-denial. The Biblical in- junction (Levit. xvi. 31; Ibid. xxiii, 32; Num. xxix. 7), to "afflict the soul" is interpreted as enforcing total abstinence from food and drink, for the purpose of begetting a spirit of contrite humility and earnest repentance. It is pre-emin- ently the Day of Atonement, the last of the ten penitential days that begin on New Year's Day. It is, further, en- joined (Ibid.) as a day of complete rest which, like the weekly Jewish Sabbath, is to commence and terminate at sun- down. The entire day is suitably spent in collective supplication, uniquely marked by religious fervour and pious prostration of the soul. In short, it is an occasion to spiritual cleanzing and re- generation, to the exclusion of all world- ly distractions; when the Jew voluntar- ily withdraws himself into the inner- most chamber of his conscience, illu- mined and inspired by an unadulterated faith in God.

BRYNTIRION TENDERS. I Lady Howard, when submitting the House Committee's report at a meeting of the Board of Guardians on Thursday, said that they had accepted the follow- ing tenders-Mr. Tom Morgan, Mr. Thomas, Station road, Mr. Willie Arthur and Mr. D. Hughes, ironmonger. Mr. Pugh: Was Mr. Tom Morgan the only tender for coffins ? Lady Howard: No, but he was the cheapest. A question then arose as to the labour Mr. Morgan employed. Mr. Elias Davios: That question about the labour he employs arises every time his tender is accepted. The last time I objected to him he proved that he paid his workmen full wages. The discussion then closed
