I I -1 Robert E, Vanhoo. a coloured Barry boarding master, was charged at Penarth Police Court on' Wednesday last with uttering certain words to the- prejudice of recruiting." Mr. Alfred Jackson, solicitor, Barry, was for the defence. Councillor Peter Wright, of New- port, said. that he was addressing a large recruiting meeting at the Ship- ping Offices. Barry Docks, on Monday afternoon. At the conclusion of the meeting he was asked by some men to go on the outside of the crowd, where there were a number of coloured men arguing among themselves. He tried to reach the men, but failed. Witness saw defendant acting in a manner which created a suspicion in his mind that he was not a British subject." He heard defendant make a statement to the effect that he would see that no one joined." The Clerk (Mr. W. J. Morris) I am afraid that this case cannot be pro- reeded with until it has been dealt with by the military authorities. Lieut. Norman W.

BARRY BELGIAN RELIEF 1
BARRY BELGIAN RELIEF. 1 RESIGNATION OF THE ALLOCA- I TTON COicMITTEE. | SMOFL!) BELGIAN GIRLS i SHOULD BELGIAN GIRLS WORK? | A meeting of the Barry Belgian Re- lief Coi-niiilttee was held in the Coun- cil Chamber. Barry Docks, on Tuesday evening last, Councillor C. B. Grif- fiths, J.P., presiding. The members present were Mr. D. W. Roberts, J.P., Councillor S. R. Jones, Councillor L. P. Griffiths, Councillor S. R. Jones, Mrs. J. E. Levers, Mrs. Edgar Jones, Mrs. Fowler, Mrs. Meggitt, Mrs. S. R. Jones, Mrs. Longdon, Mrs. J. R. Llewellyn, and Mr. T. Walters. A letter was read from Mrs. Evans, Barry, stating that she was resigning her position as a collector in the Park and High-street Wards, as she was leaving the district for an indefinite period. She had, however, asked Mr. C. Christian to keep on the work for a fortnight. Since he had received the letter Mr. L. P, Griffiths intimated that he had induced Mr. Christian to undertake the work until lFrs. Evans returned. The Chairman was asked to write and thank Mrs. Evans for her services. Mr. Roberts suggested that Belgian girls should try to obtain work as far as possible. Mr. S. R. Jones: Do they know the language? He knew of a case, when a position was offered to a girl, she did not understand English sufficiently. It would not be fair to the girl, the em- ployer, or the committee. Mrs. Longdon suggested that classes bo arranged for them. Mrs. S. R. Jones proposed that Miss Duncan. the manageress of the Barry Labour Exchange, be a member of the 'committee. She would be in a position to find situations for them. Mr. S. R. Jones: I am not in favour of this. I suggest that the Belgians be informed that the time had come for them to obtain employment, and help to keep themselves. It was decided that the Belgians be informed to this effect at the next meet- ing. The Chairman stated that he had received a communication asking if Barrv would hold a flag-day for the Belgians in Belgium. Russian and Serbian flag days would be held- shortly. Barry had sent X600 to the Belgian fund, and had raised X2,000 for the Belgians in Barry. He asked permission to reply to this effect, and offer to entertain the suggestion at a later date. The committee agreed. In presenting the financial record for the month, Mr. L. P. Griffiths stated that there was a balance of XI-28 3s. Id. in hand, a decrease of £50 on the previous month." The average expendi- ture was XII a week, and for the last eleven weeks the income had only been X9. Mr. Walters suggested that addi- tional collectors be appointed, but no names were proposed, and the sugges- tion fell through. In consequence of circumstances of a more or less sensational character which occurred during the meeting, the Allocation Committee resigned en bloc, and the re-election of this eommittee, or the election of a committee in their stead, was deferred till the next meet- ing.
