(A Welsh talk by S. M. Powell on ' Old
Mansions of the Vale of Teifi
Most of the old country houses in the upper part of the Vale of Teifi are now in ruins. Around them is centred much of the history of rural Wales since the beginning of the enclosure period. Tonight's speaker, who is the history master at the Tregaron County School, tells us that his talk this evening will consist of history-without-tears and that he will touch upon those aspects of the subject that will interest the average listener. As these old houses are within easy reach of the main road, his talk will also serve as an introductory guide to tourists.
Conductor, FRANK PICKERING
