VARSITY OVERWHELMED. I (By "Recorder"). I Bangor Comrades, 12; University Col- lege of North Wales, 1. A score of 12—1 rather suggested a rout, a sort of only-one-team-in-it game, but really the students were by no means dis- graced, and mado a plucky stand. They had a fair share of the game, but were in- ept in front of goal. Off they started with a run, and before the Comrades had quite settled down to their stride Foulkes Wil- liams had scored. There were visions of an even game, with a slight margin be- tween the teams at the end. Gradually the Comrades got going on the right. The ball was passed to H. Davies, who struck the post, and the ball rebounded to the foot of Dick Jones, who swished it into the net, 1—1. The outside right sprinted up the field, swung across an accurate cen- tre, not into the hands of the goalkeeper, but a yard or two from the goal, where the ball was met by H. Owen-2-1. In about a couple of minutes H. Davies registered No. 3, and Matthew Pattuson, who, by the w.ay. is transferring hie affec- tions from the Railway Institute to the Comrades, so accurately placed a corner that Dick Jones had no difficulty in obliging with No. 4, and H. Edwards with No. 5. That was the state of the poll at the interval. The second half was practically a repe- tition of the first. When the Comrades got anywhere in the danger zone, the ball was whizzed into the net. Robinson, the 'Varsity centre-half and skipper, tried hard to keep the score down, but he had precious litte .support. Tho Comrades retired with a dozen goals to their credit, and if they can reproduce Saturday's form they should do well in the League and in the cup-ties. There was a capital "gate," and the cricket field, which is now roped Off, was in excellent condition. The teams were:— Com fades: Bowen Thomas; Walter Rees and Hwfa Williams; George Hill, Aapinall and Hugh Jones; Dick Jones, H. Ed- wards, II. Owen, H. Davies and M. Patti- son. 'Varsity: J. E. Hughes; Arthur Morris and Rowley; Brock, Robinson and J. H. Roberts; L. II. Jones, R. B. Evans, Foulkes Williams, R. C. Davies and Caradoc Evans. Referee: Mr H. R. Williams.
I LLANGEFNI AND LLAl NERCHY. MEDD COMRADES. The football team of the Llangefni brandh visited LlancrdlYmedd on aturday, and there met the Llanerchymed 1 Comrades in a friendly match. Llangefni won the toss, and elected to play with the wind, but it was evident from the first that the forward Jin,) of the visitors would soon leave their mark on the defences of the home team, and the final result bore out this assumption. The result was:—Llan- gefni 4. Llaneichvmedd 1. The Llangefni goal scorers were tvor Williams (2), J. Gerrard; and J. Price.
CHICCIETJI FOOTBALL CLUB. I A meeting of the Football Club was iieid at the Public Library on Wednesday night. Dr. Livingstone Davies, J.P., presided. Ar- rangements were made regarding the ficlcf and general rules for the working of the club were formulated. The question of joining ai i league was left over until a further meeting." I
FREEDOM OF THE PRESS. I A meeting of the Committee of the London branch of the Institute of Jour- nalists passed a resolution which, while expressing its sincere 6atisfaction at an honourable settlement of the railway strike, records strong disapproval of the attempt to apply trade union pressure in certain newspaper offices in order to pre- vent the free expression of public opinion, and warm appreciation of the firm action taken by newspaper publishers to main- tain, in the public interest, the tradition- al liberty of the British prees.

FOOTBALL NOTES. r The principal League fixtures were fulfilled on Saturday, despte the difficulties of travel- Iiit,, owiijg to the railway strike. The sur- prise of the afternoon was the surpriso of Aston Villa, who registered their first victory of (he r;(HI by defeating Bradford by the only goal of the match. < Penlre Hnited's last two away matches cost the club £10 in travelling expenses alone. They therefore, need the three successive home matches, which they are now enjoying, to place them on their feet. ]f the next two gates are anything like the one on Saturday last they should not only make ends meet, but find them overlapping. Mr Richard Jones, captain of Breughton's first team, twisied his ankle so severely in tho trial match that he has since been unable to tiirn out for his side this season He hopes to be fit in a week or two. -if Cowley, Saltney I nited's goalie, who did so well last week at Queensferry, was a chance discovery, having been picked by his selec- tion committee as a last resource to play against Brook Hurst a few Saturdays ago, when the regular man was not available He has since surprised everybody, and made some stunning saves on Saturday last. 0 It is a remarkable thing that the three teams. Ewloe, Connah's Quay and Peatre should all have gone so far into their fix- ture lists before losing their first game, but all of them now are in the same boat. So far as the Quay is coriccrnod their luck was the worst of all as they were playing with only nine men all through t he game II itil Esclnshain White Stars on the occasion of their first defeat. Shotton district is cer- tainly well off for football talent this season. Peatre have been at great pains awl ex- pense to board off their ground from the view of the high road, but it is questionable wheth- er they would not have got over the difficulty by arranging their supporters on tho goal line nearest the road. Connah's Quay are under the same obligation, but in that caso the road looks up a slope, and a convenient parapet at its side makes excellent seating accommodtion. Todd of Saltney United*, cut his knee so badly on Pentre's ground last Saturday that sCTtclTPs were necessary lti the wound. Many teams have such a full programme this season that one rainy day will put the fat in the fire, and the committee's feelings will then probably be as mixed as the fore- going metaphor. < Sallney United owe a great deal to the tundness of their president, Mr Charles Lov- att.of the Red Lion Hotel. Saltney, who has done so much to assist the team into being. What football would have done in these days of high prices without the assistance of the many public spirited people it is hard to say. ir But for the assistance of Mr Harry Wil- cock, of the Ermine Hotel, Chester, vicei- president of the Pentre United Club, the fix- tiuo between this club and Saltney United last week would havo been abandoned. Mr Wilcoek pJaçed a conveyance at the disposal of Saltney at the last minute after their ar- rangements had gone badly "agle-y." « The Quay, too, were in this boat, and were very near to a disappointment, C'aergwrle having been let down in their original chart- ering. and then being let down still further on the amended proposition. Their brake, it appears, broke. It was decided last week to form a football club at Criccieth. The following officials were appointed :-Chairman, Dr. Livingstono Davies, J.P. treasurer, Mr Allen Thomas, L.C. and M. Bank; hon. secretary, Mr E. J. Bough; captain of team, Mr Robt. Ellis, The Cwrt. It was decided that the colours should be red and black. Tho Connah's Quay and C'aergwrle teams are to bo highly commonded for the clean, sportsmanlike play which character- ised their last game. The usual Cup tic tactics were conspicuous by their absence. It proves that the Quay can turn a side of real good amateurs out. Teddy Jones, who has only been de- mobilised a few days, is a great paycr; well-built young with a brain for good football; his defence and placing was at- ways clever. Morris, Caergwrle's centrc-forward, is an experienced p'ayer, having been captain of both Soccer and Rugby teams in con. nectkn with Aberystwyth University. Godding, who piayed so brilliantly, has been assisting Wrexham, and acted as custodian when Wrexham beat Witton Albion 3-2 last week. It is the earnest hope that his injury is not serious. » < < Saturday's match with Bryinbo at Brymbo will prove one of the stiffest League games foi Connah's Quay. Congratulations to Peers, our goal- keeper of the past, on again being chosen to "hold the fort" foz Wales ir. her inter national matches. Mr J. H. Turner, trainer of the C'aergwrle team, is one of three one-timo well-known Turner brothers, of Wrexham football fame. In 1892. the same year as Wrexham won the Welsh Senior Cup. on the Wrexham Race- course. Joe, as he is familiarly known, got his international cap for Wales against Eng- land. 1). and W. Turner are now abroad. but will be remembered-D. Turner, as deputy for the renowned goalie. I. Trainer, of Pres- ton North End, when the latter was playing in international and other important games, and W. Turner as playing for Everton in the same circumstances. Joe. by the way, is brother-in-law to Horace Blew, possessor of no less than 23 international caps.
SPORTING ITEMS. The American Ladies' Championship meet. ing concluded on Saturday on the Shawneo Country Club's course. The finalists were Miss Alexa Sterling (Atlanta), the holder, and Mrs W. A. Gavin (South Shore). The latter is the English internationalist player, and a former member of the Huntercombe Club, Henley-on-Thames. Toronto is about to erect a municipal ath. letic stadium at a cost of £ 10,000. This is only ono instance indicating a new outlook in the direction of athletics on the part of t.he Canadian authorities. In Victoria (Bri- tish Columbia) there is a campaign afoot for the establishment of civic golf links, while municipal tennis courts are already in vogue and popular in many Canadian cities. :j: Mr C. B. Cochran has decided to stage the contest under championship conditions between Sergeant Johnny Basham, the welter-weight champion, and Bermondsey Billy Wells at the Holborn Stadium on Saturday. Both men are reported to be very fit. Basham is training at Wrex- ham, and Wells at Wembley. Mr S. Whiting, a former pro of the Cric. cieth Golf Club and now of I'kley, was high- ly succe-stul in the recent News of the World eompetiion at Walton Heath. He reached the semi-final and was only beaten by the fa- mous Duncan on the 19th hole. Whiting1 missed by an 18 inch putt.
NEW GOLF CHAMPION. I Abe Mitchell won the Professional Golfers' £ 500 News of the World tournament at Wal. ton Heath on Thursday at his first attempt. He only joined the professional ranks in; October. 1913, when the tournament of that. year had I)ec ii decided, and before another twelve months had passed the great war was thundering over Europe, drawing the young professionals to sterner arenas than the links, and suspending entirely all competitive golf. Five years ago Mitchell, just emerged from a successful amateur career, went right to the front of professional golf, and in the limited competition that has been possible this sea. son he has amply demonstrated, after a blank of live years, that he is more than the cen- tral oak of English golf of the immediate fu- ture. it will be recalled that at St. An- drew's in June, in a competition which was the <>|K'ii championsnip in all but name, he won the gold medal after a tie with George Duncan, his opponent of yesterday, and it is worthy of note that only once has the open championship and the Professional Golfers' Association tournament been won by the same player in one year.
WAR TROPHIES FOR I WREXHAM. Lord Kenyon, Lord Lieutenant of Den- I bighshire, has offered Wrexham Town Council a, 'ietman howitzer and four field guns. The offer has been accepted. t
NORTH WALES COAST I LEAGUE. 13 CLUBS IN DIVISION 2. I A meeting of the management comnrUtee of the League was held last nigt at the Station Hotel, Rangor. Mr P.

C. Davies (Festiniog), Mr G. 0. Williams (Penmaenmawr), Mr R. H. Jones (Betheada Comrades', and the sc-cretairy (Mr H. R. WiLliarus). NEW CLCBS FOR DIVISION 2. I A letter was read from Air Wynne Jones notifying that the application by trie Beth- esda (jruted tor admission into the League had been withdrawn. An applicau-ion was received from Beth- esda Comrades for admission il;to Division 2.—Granted Abergele abo applied to join Division 2, t'.ieir representative stating they had "a nice little team."—Granted, as aiso was a similar application from Ban- gor Railway Institute, who are running a lirst division* team as well. A letter was received from Mr Water- house asking whether Shoitou c,mld join the League. Stating that Shotton was too far from the ether clubs, Mr Morgan (Con- way) moved that the application be re- fused, and this was carried. Old Colwyn were permitted to join Divi- sioi 2. There are now 13 c'ubs in Division 2 of the League. PLAYERS TRANSFERRED. I R Morton Williams and vVaiter Jones applied for their transfer from Bangor Comrades to Carnarvon. It was explained that these players signed on for Bangor Comrades under the impression that no club would b,' run at Carnarvon. Mr Morgan (Conway) thoug-ht the League should take great care over trans- fers. Later on he intended proposing iba-t no player s/hould he granted E. transfer within three months after having been granted another transfer. Mr Thoma; (Bangor Railway Institute) agreed and sa:d they had received four transfer notiecj from Bangor Comrades. It was no use trying to run elubs if players were being transferred in this way. The two players were transferred, as also were R. Stephen Jones from Pen- maenmawr to Llarifairfechan. Matthew Pattison from Bangor Railway Institute to Bangor Comrades, and Arthur Owen from Bangor Railway Institute to Carnarvon. A discussion oecuned as to a dispute regarding fixtures between Carnarvon ;1.nd Bangor Comrades, a.nd eventually the secretary was asked to select, dates after conferring with the representatives of the two dubs.

OUR LIBRARY TABLE. I In the October number of the "Welsh Outlook." an article on "Political Futili- ties" contains some very straight-forward sentiments Referring to the Welsh poli- tical parties tho writer remarks that Waks is to-day in a worse position than she has over been since 1868." Following a lukewarm tribute to Welsh Liberalism of the past, the article continues in this straiii -"To-Ja-y, Welsh official Liberal- ism, as represented, say, by the We!sh National Council, stands for no principle, not even for the principle of honest re- action. It seeks to find its security in the 'previous quest.ion'-and thus proclaims to tho world its complete and final dis- integra-lion." The current issue of the "Outlook," in the variety of its contents, well main wins the standard of its predecessors. The current issues of the Dt/soedydd and Dysaedydd y Plant contain a miscellany of prose, music, and biography. The standard of these monthly magazines is still good, and their editions deserve much credit for read- able and topical matter. To all lovers of music "Y Cerddor" is a magazine that ought to appeal strongly. It deals in a comprehensive way with modern movements in the music world. One of the most interesting articles in the current issue of "Y Oerddor" is the one on the Society of Welsh Musicians," by Mr Tom Thomas, L.R.A.M. Perl y Plant," "Cymru'r Plant," and "Trysorfa'r Plant,all children's maga- zines,—are very good. The simplicity of their style, and the interesting manner in which their matter is treated, are sure to I win a warm place in the affection of Welsh boys and girls. The C.M. monthly magazine, "Y Drysorfa," is well edited by Dyfed, and the October issue is as rich as ever in j material.

Wednesday was observed as a day of thanksgiving at Conway, all the places of business and public offices being closed for the day to enable the people to attend the thanksgiving services which were held at all the churches and chapels of the borough. At the Parish Church celebrations of the Holy Communion took place at 8 and 10 a.m. At the morning service the spe- cial preacher was the Rev. R. Hughes, B.A., resident chaplain of Dolgarrog. A children's flower service was held in the afternoon, which was addressed by the Rector of Llangelynin; and at the Welsh service in the evening the Rev. Lewis Jen- kins, B.A., rector of Llanboris, preached. The church was beautifully decorated for the occasion, and the offertories were de- voted to Home and Foreign Missions. The services will be continued at St. Agnea' Church on Sunday evening, when the Rev. Canon Fairchild, M.A., will be the preacher.

LORD FRENCH'S JOURNEY. An interesting personal by-product of the strike is Lord French's return to Ire- land. The Viceroy, instead of taking the train to Holyhead or even using the. aero- plane, went by water all the way from London.
Give Your Stomach a Chance "Unquiet meals make ill digestions," said Shakespeare. And he knew. Some of those meals he had with his jovial friends, at the Mermaid Tavern, proba- bly weren't very quiet. A little fun, a little jollity, and happy laughter will help a meal, but jumping up for one thing or another, rushing the meal "to get it over"vell, could it pos- sibly be good for the stomach? Not that it won't work; but, rather, that it oan't,. It hasn't a fair chance! The outcome is all too certain. The food, vriich the stomach cannot digest easily, liea like a load. This may be followed by pain, per- haps in the stomach, or it may be in the chest. Then flatulence or acidity follows, and, likely as not, a dull, heavy f-eeling with, perhaps, a distressing headache. But the very cause of all these troubles suggests ita own remedy. If all these miseries are due to the stomach'a in- ability to digest food, the sensible course is to give the stomach a little help, and nothing is so helpful to tired, jaded, over- worked stomachs as Mother Seigel's Syrup, the ideal stomach and liver tonio. With the aid of Mother Seigel's byrup, the stomach regains its ability to digest food naturally And thoroughly, and only from well-digested, assimilated foofl taA you derive strength and vigour..

I WREXHAM A COUNTY I BOROUGH. It is proposed to apply for powers consti- tuting Wrexham a county borough, embrac- ing a ppulation of about 100,000. The borough was incorporated in 1857, and since that date there ha? been no extension of th-e boundaries, and, in consequence, the town has become overcrowded. The scheme is receiving the hearty support of some of the outlying parishes, and is a Ions-delayed improvement.
I THE BELLS OF RHYL, I A curious complication has arisen at Rhyl, where, owing to the Welsh chapel services starting at an earlier hour than the English Church services, it has been found that the bells of St. Thomas' Church interfere with the Welsh services. The Rhyl Free Church Council (says the Western Mail) have ap- pointed a deputation to wait on the vicar to ask whether the bell-ringing cannot be modi- fied at the time when the Welsh chapel ser- vices aro in progress.
I WELSH MINISTER'S LONG TRAMP. The Rev. David Davies, the veteran Welsh Baptist minister of Llandudno, preached in Monmouthshire on Sunday week. Next morning he discovered there were no trains to take him home. Wishing to keep his promise to preach at two of the chapels in the vicinity of Llan- dudno on the following Sunday, Mr Da- vies, who is 70 years of age, decided to walk back. Setting out on the long jour- ney he proceeded across Wales via Llan- dyssul and took the coastal road through Aberystwyth. "Lifts" on the way were given him by mail cart drivers and others, and he tramped the remainder of the dis- ta.nce, arriving in good form on Friday evening, so that he was able to fulfil his engagements on Sunday.
