During the last number of years Christmas time .has been a singularly quiet time at Gorseinon, with the notable exception of last year, when the Gors- einon and District Choral Society so ably rendered Ilandel's Samson" at Bryn- teg Chapel.

Some well known artistes have already been engaged for the principal parts. Blod- wen" will be performed at the Brighton Hall on Christmas, Boxing, and Saturday nightS December 25th, 26th, and 27th next, for the benefit of the Goraeinon and District War Memorial Fund.

The Day's Gossip. I
The Day's Gossip. I Leader VfTice, Saturday. Lord Howard de Walden said some very hot things at the Drama luncheon yester- day not only about the backwardness of Welsh music—and in truth we are in the dark ages of music, although we try to convince the world that we are wonders— but about the Welsh drama; but he wrapped these criticisms up in such artistic and courteous language that their full meaning may not have dawned upon all. I believe that Lord Howard would 11 feel, with regard to many of our native products, that they want treatment with a hatchet; mark, I am not ascribing the phrase to him, but I have a good idea that he is under no illusions about their poor construction and their lack of unity and design. A Mus. Bac. Outburst. I I am not out to defend the Western Mail" against Dr. Vaughan Thomas's terrific indictment-he said it had a good time out of Welsh quarrels, and a lot of other gingery things for which I scarcely think he has warrant-for the young lions of the Mail" can do their own roaring very effectively. But, although I ques- tion the use of the occasion, he was quite right, in his assault upon the people who, well able to do so, never give a helping hand to the arts. They exist, even in Swansea; their soul is in trade, and it is as small as their trade. About Lyn-y- Van," the doctor's cantata which was pro- duced at the Swansea National Eisteddfod and has never been heard since in the town, I agree he is justified in complain- ing, for it is a very beautiful work, and local societies might have done a native composer the honour of performing it in preference to eternal Handel and Men- delssohn. George Colwilf. I Without prejudice," as the lawyers say, I welcome back George Coiwill to the Council. I hope he will be strong enough to represent the Kilvey Ward and not the Labour Association; and, if he must give us figures, that he will remember what poor vessels most of us are for carrying his elaborate calculations. A few at a time would be best. I welcome him back because he is as straight as a die, because he is so intensely in earnest-because in fact he is a thoroughly good fellow. At the same time it is unfortunate that Mr. Sam Davies-P erroi deprives us of a con- test, because two good men would be in the field-and one under the handicap of belonging to a party that would refuse I him freedom 01 a tion. In the present cir- cumstances, Mr. Daviep would have won I hands down. Dividend Hunting. I ve been wondering for some time how long sane Labour (which is surely the greater part of it) will stand, without protest, some of the ravings of the Daily Herald." It is, at any rate, pleasing to notice, as I often do, that leaders buying their morning papers do not take its opinions unaccompanied. A friend of mine, who knows a good deal of Cornish mining (although not of the famous Levant property, where this week's disaster has occurred) draws niy attention to its treatment yesterday of that sac1 event. Everything Eem.8 to 1 hate be eacrinced to dividend hunting" it calm alleges, adding that the dis- aster s ws the evil of private ownership I and is surely the strongest argument in I favour of mine nationalisation." Bob jail!ie, on request, points the moral that it the mines were owned and controlled by the State a difiWent system of raising and lowering the men would he adopted than this antediluvian method. I sup- pose, comments my friend, this nonsense will be swallowed as gospel by some t'hou- sands of people in the Kingdom. But nobody who knows Cornish mining will believe it. It is rather unfortunate for the Herald" that on this very week people who do know (among them the manager of the most successful and the best-equipped mine) are telling a Govern- ment Commission that unless tin rises to meet the cost of materials or Govern- ment assistance is forthcoming, the mines must close. This doesn't sound much like dividend hunting." And Levant is among those losing most! The Sense of Taste. Most people are labouring under wrong impressions, as regards the sense of taste. They would be willing to swear on affi- davit that coffee and tea, apart from the varieties brewed in the average railway refreshment room, have each their indi- vidual taste, as well as food and beverages of many other kinds. But wise men'are agreed that there are only four different tastes, sweet, bitter, acid and salty. Lav-crbrea-d and white bread have each their different flavours, but my friend Roamer" declares that it is Lot the sensa of taste that tells you. Roughly speaking, taste is a chemical re-action, and as an eminent French chemist states in the Revue Scientifique," even scien- tists do not yet fully understand just what happens! Circumstantial as may be the evidence—overwhelming in support of these facts—Swanseaites will continue to appraise at their full value steak and kidney pies, and those dishes that rJake merry the heart of man; and bear in mind that tea does this! Another Nature idyll. I Those oontributors of mine who are good enough to help fill this column with occa- sional paragraphs on the moods of nature are, I know, men of humour; and I be- lieve they will enjoy with as much zeet as the rest of us the following piece of funning sent me by a correspondent:— As I sat on a stone looking over the bay, what a wonderful Óg h t Away to the north-east by south a great crimson clpnd of a magenta colour hunx lowering over the water, beautiful streaks of lemon- coloured blue stretched right away to the 11 distant horizon. Everybody knows now the wonderful facts I have pointed out before, How the thrush carries its snail far into the sky after selecting a stone to drop it on. How a frog swims like a man with its hands on its hi]'s. How olive oil is a sure antidote to snake bite—it ought to sell well in India. And how wet water is. and how white snow unless it is some other colour. I wonder what the wood- pecker is thinking of as he probes so deftly in the soft earth loobng for worms. How wonderful are the ways of nature j even in the frostiest weather: this little bird never feels cold with his firov coloured breast always in front of him. What music there is in the caw of the r-en gull How busy the crows are search- ing for acorns amongst the fallen leaves of the chestnuts. It reminds me of the time when I was in Franco amongst the snows of the Sierra Aloreni-biit that per- haps is another -,tory. Well. I wish, lie would tell us; and (out of the satirical rnooi) write as charmingly as the nature j lovers he compliments by his parody-for I a parody is the best tribute to a.rt 1 j
