Crymmych Eisteddfod Scene J
Crymmych Eisteddfod Scene. J =-- ADJUDICATOR AND AX ANONYMOUS LETTER. A strong protest was made on Wednesday the 11th inst at Crymmych Arms (Pem.) Eis- teddfod against an anonymous letter which had been sent to the adjudicator. fl He said that certain information had reach ed him which he regretted. He was given to understand that there was bad feeling amongst the competing choirs, and some of the competitors had even suggested that it was a foregone conclusion that some partieu- lar choir was to he awarded the prize. He then read an anonymous letter which he had received that morning, and the con- tents of which he resented. He very much regretted to discover such ill-feeling, it was bad enough in normal times, but to indulge in these petty quarrels at such a time as this was nothing less than disgraceful. Ii these people could not find anything bet 'or to do. if tliev could not do anything to their country, something, to alleviate the sufferings of thousands of broken-hearted widonsw and fatherless children in our land, let them hide their faces in the blackest cave for si ame. Let them not appear on EistedJ- fod platforms, on which had stood the finest men of our race. It was too good to be pol- luted and execrated by such small-sou led mole-eyed gossips and caiping critics, who dabbled in the mire and quarcilcd with ol e another over such paltry, pettifogging details. The remark were received with applause. Crymmych Arms (Pem.) Chair Eisteddfod was held at the New Market Hall on Wedn.\s- day. the 11th instant. The adjudicators were:—Mr T Hokkin Evans, Mus. Bac..

Are You Envious
Are You Envious? Envious of what? Why the men and women who are so cheerfully tackling the difficulties of these troublous times. They never worked harder or longer: yet the stock oi their vitality does not give out. You think of your pains after eating. Yolif. lack of relish for even the most appetising food. Your headaches depression. dizzi- ness that at times seems to overwhelm you. The contrast is simply ex-plained. It is a matter of digestion. You are weak and ailing, proha.bly

WAR AD LABOCn
WAR AD LABOCn. In the current issue of the Board of Trade "Labour Gazette" appears an article oil the effect of the war upon the labour market- dur- ing the year of hostilities. At the end of November employment was at about the same i level that was prevailing before the war. Since then the demand for labour has steadily increased, and the industries engaged 'in sup- j plying the requirements of the Allied forces have for months been working at high pressure. At the present time there is very little unemployment in a few iuxury trades, while iin a number of industries the demand for la,hour greatly exceeds the sopply.
