Whitland Tribunal. Tiio Whitland Rural Tribunal sat .at the Hotel Grosvenor on Friday. There were pre- sent 3h T. Da vie s (chairman), Mr Levi Davies, Mr Peter Howe! Mr W. Thomas, Mr W. L. Matthias. Mr D. Davies, Mr W. Thomas. Mr Morgan Phillips. Mr J. Owen. Mr J. D. AVilT I' liams, Mr J. Phillips. and Mr D. Richards. Capt. Margrave and Mr W. Lewis Phiiipps represented the Military Authority, and Mr Rogers the Board of Agriculture. SLAUGHTERMAX INDISPENSABLE. A slaughterman aged (38) in Group 42 ap- plied for exemption. He said that if he were called up his wife could not carry on the business. Capt. Margrave raised no objection, and tht Tribunal granted total exemption. COMBING OUT THE SINGLE MEN. A discussion arose over the case of a gar- dener at Pendine. The c-aso had been ad- journed from the previous meeting on a sug- gestion l'rom the Military Representative that h? should find work in a munition factory. A letter was now read from the man's wife stating that he was now working at a munition factory in South Wales. Capt. Margrave said that in this case he was sending a married man 36 years of age who is not pai ticularly suitable for the Army into the munition factory and gettng a single man out. The Inspector would be going round in the course of the week and lie would make a clean sweep of the single men. The Chairman asked if this would apply to the colliers as well. I Capt. Margrave said that the Inspector had been round the collieries, and he had taken 500 out of 1,500. The Chairman said that the coal-pits are the great City of Refuge. Capt. Margrave said that some time ago ho attended a conference at Cardiff in connection with the employment of men in colileries. It was there admitted that on the. average tho men did not work more than H days a week. It was a disgrace to the country that this should be going on and that these men should lie en niing enough money to keep them idle 2 days a. week. One could see crowds of them driving into Carmarthen in charabancs. The Chairman said that North Walians are filling up the coal-pits teo. Capt. Margrave said that at Carmarthen some who had been refused exemption by the Tribunal had gone straight to the munition works. iMr Wm. Thomas said that he understood that they would not employ men in collieries • now except, they had certificates to show that they had previausly worked in collieries. Capt. Margrave said that he was prepared to consent to an exemption for this Pendine gardener if he were working at the munition factory. Mr Matthias: He has started last Monday. I am positive of that. THE POSITION OF TEACHERS. An application was received for exemption for tho head teacher of the Whitland Council Council School. A letter was read from Mr J. W. Nicholas, the Clerk of the Carmarthenshire Education j Committee, supporting the application. Mr W m. Thomas gave particulars showing that tho school was understaffed already. If the head teacher went it would be a practical impos-ibilitv to carry on the school. Mr Richards -.aid that this man was one oi the best schoolmasters in the county. Capt. Margrave I do not think Mr Nicholas wouid appeal for this man except he were aùseI n teJy necessary. Mr AA m. Thomas said that he did not think any woman could manage 83 boys. Capt. Margrave: The majority of women can handle two very nicely. Total exemption was granted. Another application was received in respect of the head teacher of Ffynonwcn Council School. He is 35 years of age. A letter was received from Mr Nicholas, the Clerk to the Carmarthenshire Education Autho rity. in support cf the application. Mr AV. Thomas. who is a member of the Car- marthenshire Education Committee, said that all the schools in the county were understaffed. Capt. Margrave said that he had not objec- ted to the other case but he was not prepared to agree to this one. Mr D. Richards .said that the schoolmasters were the only class exempted in Germany. The Germans realised the importance of education. We should not do anything to impair the effi- ciency of our educational system in view of tho commercial competition which Would follow the war. There is going to be n war after the war. Capt. Margrave: Let us win the war before we talk of what we. shan do after the war. We have not won this war yet. Mr ii-iti. Thomas said that the Committee were doing all they could to get teachers. They employed married women who had given up teaching previous to the war. They were quite unable to get a sufficiency of teachers, and they could not get them. Capt. Margrave said that he could get a lady to teach this school in 23 minutes. T'1, question was what the Committee weve ottering to pay. The Advisory Committee had con sidered this case, and they had decided to ion. sent to three months postponement in to enable other arrangements to be made. A HINT TO GET MARRIED. A iarm-Gr in the pari.-h cf :r.ianfalltt'g ap- pealed for his brother, who is 18 years of age. Cii'pt. Margrave said that boys of 18 are now liable to be called up for training, but not to be sent abroad until they are 19. The farmer, who is himself aged 27. said that he had a sister aged 25 on the farm as well as his brother. Hit brother is the ''cowman." There are 22 cows on the farm. Capt. Margin1, e (to appellant): What do you do? Appellant: I manage the farm. Capt. Margiave: What management is there when the cows are looked after. It was stated that the farmer had 32 acres of hay to get m. and it was decided to grant exemption until the ond of September. Capt. Margrave said that he hoped the war would be over before this youth was 19. Mr D. Richards said that tli- Tribunal re- commended the farmer to get a wife before his brother was failed up. THE EXPENSE OF MARRIED MEN". A farmer in Lianfailtog Parish applied for exemption for a man who is married. It was stated that the man had six children. Capt. Margrave: Then the wife and family will got 27s a week. That is more than lie J gets uow I am sure. Mr D. Richards: Don't you think you are burdening the country calling up these men with large families. Capt. Margrave: The Government hare plenty of money if they have not you have plenty to pay them. Exemption was granted until 1st of August, on condition that no further appeal was lodged. NOT UNFIT FOR FARM WORK. Application was made for exemption for a farmer's son, aged 39, at EfaiIwen. The farm was 133 acres. 27 of this were under the plough and 28 under hay. The farmer said that he had another son who was medically unfit. Capt. Margrave: If he is medically unfit for the Army, it doe-s not follow that he is medi- cally unfit to work on the farm. Mr W. Thomas He is entitled to two. Total exemption was granted. A MILLER'S CASE. A long discus-ion took place over the appeal by a miller at Cwmfelinbeeth. Capt. Margrave said that in view of the number of men there, the man appealed for could be spared. He was of opinion that this man ought to go. Mr John Owen: We are not of the same opinion. Mr D. Richards How many porkers do you j pork. Appelant: Six n month. Mr D. Da vies said that the mill could not be managed without the aid of this man. Exemption until Septembr 30 was granted on condition that no further appeal were en- tered without the consent of the Tribunal. WHERE IS IT TO END ? J The pi oprictior of a. milk factory appealed for a carman wlio drives milk to tho station. The case had been adjourned in order to give the employer time to get an ine-ligible man, but th?y had not succeeded. Mr Wm. Thomas said that lie did not think the employer would appeal if he could get any- body to replace this man. Capt. Margrave Thi. is not a certified occu- pation. The Clerk looked up the list and said that the carmen exempted were those who collected milk from the station. The appellant said that the milk had to be brought to the factory and put through a process. i Capt. Margrave: I do not believe in putting milk through the process. I believe in it straight from the cow. A farmer wants his men to work on the land; he wants the cow- man to fetch the milk he wants a. man to col- lect his butter, and another to collect his eggs. He wants one man to bring his groceries and another to cart his coal. He wants a tailor to make his clothes, a shoeing smith to &hoe his horse, a blacksmith to repair his implements, I a. wheelwright for his carts, and a baker to bake his bread. Where is it going to end Mr W. Thomas said that if each farmer drove his milk from Llanboidy there would be 23 carmen instead of this one. It was decided to grant two month's exemption.
The Question of Health
