-4u _1 THE TERRITORIALS. I Army Committee's Proposals 1 for New Force.. I The Army Committee of the House of Commons holds strong views.on the re- organisation of the Territorial Force, and it proposes to lay them before the Prime -•Minister at an early date. The Commi t trv recommends that :— (1) rull details of the proposed new organisation and conditions of service lor j the Territorial Force "should fte published without delay. (2) Any alteration contemplated in the existing terms of seryitie should be an- iii-i n m before recruiting w opened. <3) h.—Tlie Territorial Force should be recruited under the old terms of service, with the additiopaj obligation to serve overseas in the event of national emer- 4, ^^jgency, provided that men shall not be liable to serve abroad exeeptin their own uaits until a uational service obligation W" is in force. it."—For the purpose" of fulfilling the functions of the Special Keserve, officers L and men, up to a limit of 25 per cent, of fgtabIi?hmeHt? should be invited to accept a general overseas obligation, to come v into effect upon the Army Reserve being » called up.

1 CARMARTHEN UNIONISTS. I Addressing a meeting of Unionists at Carmarthen, Mr. Mervyn Peel, chairman of the Carmarthen Division Unionist Associa- tion, dealt with the policy of the Unionist i Party, and urged support /or the Coalition. Mr. Bonar law ba4 stated, in response to calls, that Unionists should adopt the party system again. I must be loyal to my Liberal colleagues in the Coalition. We have got to work together for the good of the country, and consider things from a national and not a party point of view." Mr. Peel said they bad the sad spectacle of Mr. Asrjuith and some of bis followers .indulging in petty cavilling at the Govern- ment. which was trying to seek the best method of solving the great jaational prob- lems confronting ua in consequence of thç" war. They were only to be likened to a child who had been naughty, and put in a. corner. (Laughter.) The task of '^reconstruction could not be done by a party Government. Referring to the «u guested formation of a Central .Party, he said it would be a pivot of safety on which the State would test, and they ought to support it by all the means in their power.

THE UNIVERSITY. I To the Editor, I Sir,—It. is with considerable interest and I pleasure that I read in your columns that the Technical College is to be made a con- stituent college of the University of Wales. We look to Swansea to meet sfcme of the pressing needs of the 'studnts of the South. ?. Bold plane at the beginning is the best policy: it ia difficult to change or'modify a scheme once inaugurated; therefore ought this scheme at the outset be wide, ambi- tious, and comprehensive. We gather that in connection with this new movement much has been done with the view of supplying efficient men for the docks, the work: and the exchange; but little is being done or said about the wider and truer culture. That the consequent danger .of this cramping object is seen ia evidenced by the appeal made for the university spirit. By all means make ample provisions for industrial efficiency, bnt let provision be made 'for those desirous of entering other walks of life. In particular would I draw your attention to the felt want of many men. There are a. number of men who would readily pursue a law course, study particularly international law, but who, to pursue this course, must betake themselves to Aberystwyth, since no pro- vision is made for them at Cardiff. To many, this condition is prohibitive, be- cause. for apparent reaeous, Aberystwyth is unsuited for men of the South with limited means. There is no reason why Swansea, should not take this matter in hand. Jn the past. if not now. a series of lectures in law have been given in this town. The need has been long felt. Why not institute a lecture-1) ip, if not a chair, in law at the Swansea. Uni- versity College? It would be a boon Jo many young men.—Yours, etc., Judex. I

Knighton Guardians allowed a resolu- tion from the Swansea Board to lie on the table. The resolution strongly protested against the present price of milk, on which the infant life of the nation de- pended. The Chairman of the Knighton Board (Mr. J. H. Bache) thought people in rural areas were paying too much for milk, but Swansea was not a rural area, and he did not think the Knighton Guard- ians were competent to judge what would he a fair price for in ilk delivered in that town. £ 30 Prize for Male Voices Morriston 50th I Annual Eisteddfod, Saturday, Dec, 27th. u

I XMAS WONDERS. I I Brilliant Display at Messrs. I I Ben. Evans. I A walk through, the principal chops of tho town this Christmas would convince, anyone that the festive season will be one i of the happiest and merriest for many years. All the shops are gorgeously decorated, and all will agree that this year's exhibitions are more than ordinarily fine. At the firm of Messrs. Ben Evans there are articles to Emit each taste and each pocket. The display of goods which are now being shown—suitable gifts for all ages—should make the difficult task ef present selecting comparatively easy. No one contemplating the purchase of toys should make their final decisions before examining the remarkable range of toys which this enterprising firm have to offer. The bazaar this year is a veritable wonder. There are motor cars, wheel- barrows, rocking horses, tricycles, peram- bulators. ballsy blocks, and beautiful dollies in abundance; in fact, every con- ceivable thing which would delight the youngsters, and the prioes, too, are con- sistently moderate. A special feature of this bazaar are the fur animals—bears, rabbit*, dogs, to mention only a few. Those fur toys have been made by the wounded soldiers "t the St. Issell's toy industry, Saundersfoot, and intending purchasers would be surprised at these new and ingenious animals. Practically every boy loves the Meccano !'ds, and therefore the extensive range of Meccano outfits in all sizefi which are ex* hibited would make a strong appeal to the average lad. The fiuesttou of new frocks' has also to be faced, and a visit to the show-rooms of this renowned firm would leave no doubt whatever in your mind that for unsur- passed beauty and up-to-date style this .'firm has no rival. Their present display includes t-ome of the best and most elaborate oi opening gowns that have been shown this season. A particularly charm- ing model is one of lemon charmeuso, with over tunic of black and gold lacej whilo a beautiful biaek ostrich feather lying at the waist gives a most original etlect Another exquisite gown was of black charmeuse aud sequin, achieving a Vf-ry eiuart and essentially up-to-date effect. The* are also pretty frockn of crepc-de-ehine, net and georgette, all in gorgeous shades and artistic designs, so very suitable for dance frocks. Diiinty blouses, that should bo seen to bo appreciated, are to bo had in large, variety of styles and materials, and make most, acceptably presents; Fancy wear always appeals to the ladies, and nuw, at this season of giving, in the fancy department they are displaying their choicest materials, beautiful scarve* of silk ajid wool in all the newest shades, Maltese laoe collars; finely embroidered handkerchiefs, ribbons. It is quite im- possible to mention in detail all the dainty and unique gifts which tJ.is de- partment has to offer. In tho art needle- work department all the newest novelties are displayed in the form of pin cushions, tea cosies, handkerchief sachets, etc. For something really nice and useful, you should visit their' fancy leather de- partment. There is a grand display of fancy leather goods of all kinds, including handbags, manicure sets, writing cases, attache cases, purses, etc. In the millinery show-rooms there are I a few French models being shown, and these are certainly worth inspection. Fitr coats, a magnificent selection of skunk ties, sable furs, ermines, beaver, etc., tweed and cloth coats, adl in excep- tionally good style, are a. few of the tempting goods to be found in the costume department. Nor must we forget the gentlemen. Everything that is choice and tasteful in gentlemen's wear will be found—a most attractive display of umbrellas, walking sticks, etc.& gentlemen's velour liata in I fawn. drab, natural, in fact all the popular shades from 35s. 6d. to 45s.

FOR COMRADES' WIDOWS. 1 An ingenious scheme for helping the widows of the local Comrades of the Great War is being employed by Mr. David Emus, of the Whyndam Hotel, College-street. Fastened to the ceiling is a. German helmet, and by means of a: dart contrivance customers have for some weeks been throw- ing coins up. These are scattered about the ceiling, and will, in due course, be taken down. In the helmet a number—under 1.000 —has been placed by "Pendragon," of the "Cambria. Daily Leadei." Widows are invited to send to Mr. Evans guesses as to what the number is, and the money will be given to the one who gives the correct or the nearest answer. Mr. Evans is also giving a valuable second prize.
