WELSH INDUSTRIES ASSOCIATION. ) EXHIBITION AT GROSVENOR HOUSE. I The annual exhibition-sale of Welsh industries was opened on Thursday by Lady Grosvenor. The exhibition was held, by the kindness of the Duke of Westminster, at Grosvenor House. Lady Grosvenor, who wore a cream silk voile gown, trimmed with black lace, and a brown tulle hat with a cluster of lilies of the valley on the brim, was accompanied by Lady Lettice Grosvenor, dressed in pale blue cloth, with a pink chiffon hat with white ostrich feathers. The object of the association, which has been started only four years, is the development and encouragement of Welsh industries, and the improvement of the textile fabrics of Wales, and it is hoped to attain this end by providing the makers with good patterns, and by helping the cottage workers to find a better market for their goods. Mills and hand-looms are included in the scope of the association, and it is hoped to do something towards preventing the country people from crowding into the towns. Various branches have been formed all over the country, depots for the sale of goods have been established, and classes and village workshops, where handicrafts can be learned and practised, are encouraged. Lady Lettice Grosvenor is president of the Flintshire branch, and was selling at her stall Welsh homespuns, adaptable for either ladies' tailor-made gowns or for men's suits. Mrs. Corn- wallis-West, president for Denbighshire, was un- able to preside at her stall, but Lady Dundonald, one of the vice-presidents, was there for part of the afternoon. Others interested in the associa- tion are Mrs. Oliver Ormerod, of Pickhill, Wrex- ham, Mrs. Drew, Mary Dowager Lady Hanmer, Miss Antonia Williams, Lady Powis, Lady Pen- rhyn and many other ladies. Lorfi Aberdare is president of the Finance Committee, and Lord Kenyon is one of the members.
