PQRTHCAWL NOTES. 1 Among the many visitors to Portheawl over Whitsuii was Sir W. J. Tatem, Bart., who is also likely to remain among us for several weeks to oome. The popular Baronet is a great believer in Portheawl, a net his enthu- -si-ism for the town and also its splendid goltf course, ig verv marked. 1 I I May I suggest that the Council should put a..couple of prominent notices on the Esplanade, at a point near the new rc^ directing the way to The Sanday Bay ? I IA iN-e had conversations with a number of visitors and not one of them hadf imy idea where the new roadway lea ds to. 1 Also might I further suggest that a notice might b9 placed at the end of Arlington Refid. off South Road, stating where it leads to. Beskle being an easy way to the Locks Com- mon it is one of the most charming \dks imaginable. Here again is another part that visitors know practically nothing about. A sign would not cost much, but it would be of inestimable value in this direction. 1 1 1 Notwithstanding the device of "no holidays for Whitsun," Porthcawl appeared' to be as full as on any previous Whit-Monday. All the trains arriving were simply packed, and many of the trains had to be run in duplicate. The facilities for coping witfi the traffic at the Xew Station were a great boon to passengers ancl railway officials. In addition to the heavy railway traffic large numbers came here by car, horse conveyances, and cycles. There were also a very largo number of visi- tors in the town for the week-end, the hotels and boarding houses being practically full up. Ill Is there a war on? The streets of Porth- eawl on Whit-Monday did not give, one the impression that such was the case. 111 What has become of the arrangements in force last year, as to motor cars, etc., stand- ing on the Front? With such an improved front it is more essential thnn ever that this order should be carried out, but on more than one occasion recently it has been quite the reverse. evident every d-a- v It ig- becoming more evi?nt every day tht in the East Side of the Dock, Porthcawl has a valuable asset, and by taking the matter properly in hand the town can make it a really charming spot. I suppose everything cannot be done at once, but as a start let the Council place a number of seats there (not seats with no backs to them) so that visi- tors can have an enjoyable rest there, without having to walk back to the Front or on to the Sandy Bay. Would it not be a good idea also to fix some concrete steps leading from the openings in the waill down to the b^ich ? This would, I am sure, be appreciated. Ill Mr. D. J. Rees and his committee are to be con=atulat?od upon the success of "Hut" Fhq; Day at Portheawl, on Whit-Monday, in connection with the Y.M.C.A. The splendid sum of over £44 was realised. A full list of the helpers appears in another column, from which it will be seen how energetically all worked for this most deserving cause. Ill It is very gratifying to hear that the number of eggs sent away by the Vicar of Pyle (Rev D. J. Arthur), in connection with the monthly collection, to which the members of The Brogden (Porthcawl) Lodge of the R.A.O.B., decided to contribute, reached a total of ever 350. This shows the true spirit of Buflfeiotsm on the part of the new Lodge. Ill That new station again! While Porth- diwliacs may be pleased with it, it is a moot question if the dozen or so male visitors, who were endeavouring to get into the old station at 10 p.m. on Whit-Mondav to catch their train, were very pleased with it. A night's lodging in Pcrthcdiwl at this time of the year is a bit expensive. The moral of this is, en- joy yourse'f wisely but not too well.

NEWS OF THE COUNTY
NEWS OF THE COUNTY. At a meeting the other day of the Glamor- gan Roads and Bridges Committee it was stated that, subject to the approval of the Treasury, the Roads Board was prepared to make a grant of t6,000 towards the cost of tar-spraying and tar-macadamising the roads in the county during the year.—The Surveyor said that it was proposed to spend altogether about £13,500 on road repairs during the year. I COUNTY FREE FROM SMALLPOX. 1 "In face of the mischievous rumours that are flying about, he would like the Press to note that at present there were no smallpox, cases in the administrative county of Glamor- gan. This re-assuring statement was made by Dr. D. J. Mcrgan, county medical officer, to the Glamprgan Health Committee last week. Dr. Morgan further stated-that during the past quarter 11 cases had been reported in the administrative county, viz., 8 at Cogan, in the Penarth district, 2 at Barry, and 1 in the Rhondda. All had been removed to the Smallpox Hospital, and four of the Cogai patients had died. GLAMORGAN WAR COLONY? I There will probably be three war colonies for disabled soldiers, and as England is bound to get two of these, it is to be hoped that the third will be located in Wales, in which case it is probable that it will be situated in Gla- morgan. At the meeting of the Glamorgan Small Holdings Committee the other day it was reported that there had been very few favourable responses to the request for land for this purpose. One suggestion (ont an actual offer) was promising, it being hinted that an application would be favourably con- sidered. As at least one thousand acres are required for this purpose, the matter rests very largely with the local landowners. PRIZE CLOVER CROPS. In connection with the Cardiff Union Agri- cultural Society, Mr. Evan Thomas, Splott Farm, Llantwit Major, the judge appointed to inspect the clover crops, reported that the crops, on the whole, were very good. He made the following awards:— Five acres -of mixed clover and rye grasses: F. George, The Deri. Five acres of clover and rye grasses: 1st, E. Akers, Pentrebane; h.c., R. Templeton, Maesllech. Piece of mixed clover and rye grasses, not Jess than five acres: 1st, C. Ivor Lowrie, Radyr; h.c., E. Akers. Five acres of mixed clover and rye grasses: W. Lougher, Llanvithin. Four acres of clover: W. Watts, Tydraw. HOW MANY MEN TO A FARM? At a meeting of the Glamorgan War Agn- cultural Committee, Mr. J. M. Randall pre- siding, to consider steps for releasing for the Army as many men as could be spared from agricultural work, a minimum scale was drawn up for the guidance of the Tribunals. For the hill districts it was recommended that there should be a farmer and one ex- perienced man on farms from 50 to 100 acres, with an additional man for farms of over 100 acres, and one man for every 300 sheep. In the Vale of Glamorgan it was recom- mended that there should be two men for every 100 acres up to 200, and one additional man for every further 100 acres. Several members pointed out that in other counties military representatives fell in with the schemes of the War Agricultural Commits tee, but ork the Glamorgan Tribunals there were few experienced farmers, and these members complained bitterly that local Tri- bunals ignored, the representation of experi- enced farmers.
OGMORE VAL E I
OGMORE VAL E. WAITING FOR THE NEWS —News is anxiously awaited by the family of Signalman Horace Andrews, who w?s serving on H.M.S. "Queen Mary," and who, although only 19 years of age, had been through two naAal engagements previous to the late great battle. It was only three months ago that he was transferred to the "Queen Mary" from H.M.S. "Princess Royal," on which ship he was serving when Admiral Sir David Beatty hoisted his flag on her after the disablement of his flagship the "Lion" during the en- gagement off the Falkland Isles. Up to the time of going to press no more information has been received' by the family. Wide spreadl sympathy is felt for his widowed mother, who's two other son are serving in H.M. forces, one in the Mediterranean, and the other "Somewhere in France." PRESENTATION.—An interesting presen- tation took place on Saturday last at the Corbett Arms Hotel, Ogmore Vale, the recipi- ents being Mr. Lewis, manager of the Rhon- dda Main Collieries, and Mrs. Lewis, on the occasion of their marriage. The presenta- tion, which took the shape of a handsome pianola, was presented by Mr. W. Davies, Ogmore Vale, who is the oldest workman at the colliery. Mr. Davies made a speech highly befitting the occasion, and Mr. Lewis, on behalf of his wife and himself, suitably re- sponded. Speeches were also made by Mr. T. Fall and by Mr. J. Harrison, who presided. The secretary was Mr. J. Morris, Ogmore Vale, and the treasurer, Mr. D. C. Williams. A musical programme followed, which was much enjoyed, and in which the following took part:—Mr. Jack Williams (tenor), Og- more Vale; Mr. Tom Thomas (Welsh come- dian), Ogmore Vale; Mr. Rufus Williams (baritone), Nantymoel; Mr. Oakley Morris, Ogmore Vale; Mr. Gwilym Kinsev, Ogmore Vale; Mr. D. Daniels, Ogmore Vale; recita- tion, Mr. T. J. Waters, Ogmore Vale. An omnibus vote of thanks to the chairman, sec- retary, treasurer, and committee brought the meeting to a close.
Garw Gleanings: J (By LLOFFWR ARALL) I Councillor Llewellyn Jones, J.P., of Ponty- cymmer, has had the honour of being ap- pointed "Noble Grand" of The United Order of Oddfellows.. 1 1 1 This is a great honour for the Garw, and rtTe learn that a good reception awaits him upon his return on Saturday night next. ? 1 The fourth contribution of £ 10 has been sent by Mrs. Joh-n Noyle (treasurer) and Miss M. E. Davies (secretary) to the Belgian Relief Fund, the money having'been subscribed by the members of the Tabernacle Chapel, Pon- tveymmer. Bravo! Ill This brings the grand total sent by the church since the beginning of the war to over 1:42. Ull We congratulate the secretary of the Pon- tyrhyl Heception Committee (Mr. Tom Pugsley) upon his untiring efforts to give a welcome to soldiers from the front. 11 1 1 In addition to the welcome given by the in- habitants, a handsome medal is also pre- sented. Ill A Garwite was observed on Whit-Monday to be walking about with his left shoe on his right foot, and vioe-versa. Ill A local "knut" was also observed at a cer- tain place pouring sauce, vinegar, and mus- tard on his fish. He was heard to remark that it was a "wee bit hot." But he showed pluck, and ate the lot. 111 Another couple are known to have lost the train on Whit-Monday, and had to hire a. taxi to return. Hard luck! Ill Since writing our last notes, the death of Lord Kitchener, our greatest soldier, has oc- curred. Ill To lose a man of his genius is a disaster to the country at this critical period. Ill -No doubt a man of excellent qualities will be found to fill his place, but there is no man in England to-day who could surpass the magic influence of Lord Kitchener as a soldier. Ill It is a thousand pities he did not live to see the result of the enormous effort he made to save his country. Ill Besides, who would be more fit to welcome the boys home than their magic Chief, Lord Kitchener ? Ill There are rumours of a famous Welshman being appointed in his place. Ill Except that he does not wear the King's uniform—and cannot rightly be termed a soldier—we doubt if there is anyone more com- petent for the job. 11 1 But there! He is a Welshman-and as Welshmen we must not' judge. Ill Messrs. George Evans and C. Gunter were appointed by the mass meeting of miners to act on the Naval and Military Pension Com- mittee for the Garw miners. Ill Last Monday was the first holiday since the restricted, hours came into force. Ill Between 2-30 and 6 p.m., on Monday, one Garwite was heard to remark he would rather be at work than walking -about with a parched throatl 111 Many, however, had' an extra flutter after 6 p.m., and failed to turn up at the pit-head the following morning. Ill We are glad these were certainly only a small percentage, as all the pits were working on Tuesday. Ill Those who failed to put in an appearance on Tuesday will, we hope, redouble their efforts to make up for lost time. Ill We hope the company won't be hard upon one young Garwite who lost time owing to devouring a shilling's worth of fish and chips, the result being, according to the doctor- sKghtly overfed!

WHAT IS THE NAYY DOING 1
WHAT IS THE NAYY DOING 1" LETTER FROM PONTYCYMMER MAN ON H.M.S. INDOMITABLE." Jenkin W. Davies, of H.M.S. "Indomit- able," writes from his ship to his parents, Mr and Mrs. John Davies, Hill View, Ponty- cymmer, as follows:- "I am in the best of health after our great action, and am glad to say the old ship is still afloat, and suffered no casualties whatever. I can tell you it is real exciting, is a battle on the water. I am glad I took part in it. It was a grand sight; what with the roar and flash of the guns, it was terrific. It was a pity to see such grand ships go down, but it is the price we have to pay for the safety and protection of our shores, and no price is too, big for that. I wonder if people will still, ask, "What is the Navy doing?"

ON THE INDEFATIGABLE. "-Arthur Phillips, who has lost his life in the great naval battle, serving as an Artificer on the "Indefatigable," was the eldest son of Mr. and' Mrs. Phillips, of Rock Street. He served his taprenticeship in the engineering shops at- Norths, Tondu, but he had strong inclinations for the Navy, and eventually his parents gave their consent. As a young man he identified; himself with the church at Ebenezer, and; was prominent in all the musical events in the. neighbourhood, being a member of the local' orchestra and the male voice choir.
