THE CALL FOR MEN
THE CALL FOR MEN CONFERENCE WITH THE MILITARY AT LLANDILO. At the invitation of Captain T. 0. Ed- wards, a conference of chairmen of tri- bunals chairmen of adVisory committees, and their -:lerk was held at the Shire-hall) Llandilo. Alderman W. N. Jones, J.P., a!&o attended. Captain ILdwards referred to the necessity of man power at the front, and the resolu- tions of the tribunals in his area to defer married men'e cases indiscriminately until December 13, in order to oomb out single men fron; reserved industries. The time had now come, h urged, when the clairps for exemption of married and sirigle men should be considered individually, and each case dealt with on its merits. In consider- ing the claims of any employer for an em- ploye corinus hardship to the employe was alone to be considered. A WORD TO THE FARMERS. It was undiprstood, according to Alder- man Jones (Captain Edwards went on), that there were hundreds of single men hiding in munition works, whose p!ac& could be taken by men, married -or single, over 35 years of age, if they were not passed for Class A by the Medical Board. The names of all sincrle rrjen would be rororded at thip office, and, as far as poesiblo, substitution would be carried out. Practically all far- mers' son* and farm servants had been exempted until the November Fair, and! it was that the farmers would be able to satisfy the tribunal and the military re- presentative that continued employment was necessary, and that all possihle- fltepa had been taken to obtain older men for the work.. Alderman Jones, J.P., then explained the remilt of his visit; to General GVddes. the War Office, and the Ministry of Munitions. Discussion followed, and it was felt by the ronfernnce that it was their duty to support Captain Edwards in the matter.

Deceased leaves a wifiow Mid three A meeting of the Newcastie-Emlyn and District Master Farriers'' and Smiths' Union was held on Wednesday of last week at the Cawdor Hotel. A largo number of mem- bers were present from the very large area covered by the union. Mir. Evan Evans, A.F.C.L., Rhydypolon, was present on be- half of the N.M.F.A. The secretary, Mr. Ben Evans, toured a very lar.ge area the previous day, accompanied by Mr. E. Evans, A.F.O.L.. Rhydypolon, Gorseinon, to intro- duce the benefit and privilege of being a member of the N.M.F.A., which was done in a« practical way from shop to shop from Ncwcastle-Emlyn to Carigan Town. New- port, Pem., Post-Gwyn. Boncath, Pontar- selly, and numerous other places, returning for the night to Oayvdar Hotel. The meet- ing commenced at 2.30 p.m. After the mem- bers of the local association had paid their eontribltions. the Chairman called upon Mr. Evan Evans to address the meeting, aiiul he thought it unnecessary to introduce Mr. EVans beiMg that he was well known by the majority of farriers in South Wales, as well as various other parts of the country, being that Mr. Evans organised South Wales for army horse and mule shoes, under the in- struction of Mr. F. Burris, Bristol. Mr. Eivans, in further introducing the associa- tion and its benefits, taking each item (claims) separately, was well explained. Members meeting with accidents at their work are entitled to 15s. per week benefit; workmen's insurance is at the rate of 17s. 6d. per cent. to members; entrance fee, IDs., and subscription, 3s. per month. Members over 60 years of age when joining pa.y 2s 2d and are entitled to all except death benefit. He gave an explanation that a large num- ber of farriers and smiths did not consider the oast of their work. For1 instance. the secretary (Mr. Ben Evans) and hijlnself, asked one man the previous day what price he was having for the largest horse he shod. He answered 3s. 6d. Does that pay you? Well, he could not say, but it wa.4 (lont- by others. So he was asked to cut four niecea of iron to suit this size horse, which he. did, and weighed 14 The of iton "2t IBs. fid.. is,. 4d. nails at 17s. 9d. per 25 lVw box. 8d: coal cost E2 per ton at fartre. 3d.; rent an drates per horse averaa-e 4d.; his own labour two hours at lftd. per hour, Is. 8d. total. 5s. 3d So both orcranisers are still puzzl'\ig how this mnn exi^te. Mr. Evans was sure it was not, living. Mr. Evans said that men in munition factories were pitting about £ 2 5s. per week wasres1 and 27.1 per cent, war bonus, and further on their jour- ney thev -net a case, a farrier and general smith with closed up shan and' now working at a steel works. On wishing this man srood-bve the organiser ndlvised him to enrol with them in the N.M.F.A., whith num- bered over 5.000, and since the lasf report 'issued 321 memliers had enrolled last quarter. In closing his address he cave a heartv welcome to all members of the locil association to transfer themselves to the N.M.F.A. The Tneetintr then turned to re, visinsr their price list and struck the prices to 1 fid. per set under the Swansea. P-ranch. and '1(, meetine was drawn to n, olor=e by sriviriar a heartv oh^er tn -if- friend in the trade of farriers. Mr. E. Frnr>«. VF.r.h., of Th,. speaker, in his r")()l1"p. said the best thinko th. could Tir^-ihlv ren- der him was to enrol in thp wheel -of pro- clr".q of fnf-iVT* in tho land, so to better the frade. hettnr prices more pat'sfaction to customers, and less piin h the noble animal, the horoe. and expres-sed hi.s ,-ih,.s alld h'ope to nmfvnnwt them shortly af all members of ill- N.M.F.
