THE BIRD ON NEW ZEA LAND'S NEW PENNY. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 26 October 1939
THE BIRD ON NEW ZEA LAND'S NEW PENNY.
Now Zealand is to have new- pennies, half-pennies, and- half- crowns next year. The coins will be made by the Royal Mint in London, and the first supply will be shipped out to Now Zealand at -the." end of this year. • - One of New Zealand's best songsters of the bush, the tui, .or parson bird, has its portrait on the kowhai tree, which bears masses of golden flowers like broom in the spring months. The tui is something like a blackbird, and is called parson bird from, the tufts of white feathers on its throat. The half-crown has the figure of a Maori woman against a back- ground showing the sun over- head, with Maori dwellings on one side contrasting with lofty build- insrs of modern times on the other. Such is the great change wrought i" a hundred years. The half-penny has a Maori tiki, a grotesque figure, on one side. The tiki is worn as a pend- ant by Maoris,

«t ■■ ■ — - ■ ... (To the Editor). Sir,—ln last week's "Leader" you reported on the attention given to a fire at Trentham, by • the Upper Hutt Fire Brigade, ro-_ marking how capably and quickly the Brigade can and does oper- ate. In view of the hot and dry wea- ther approaching, your remarks are very reassuring to those of us whose property will be in very serious danger from gorse fires in the Borough, unless immediate action is taken to have this men- ace removed from our back doors. By immediate action, I meaTi that those owners of empty sec- tions which are overgrown with gorse, should get busy and clear-" away the danger. There, is -no need to. wait until served with a notice from the Inspector, as there is the possibility that the fire will arrive before "the'notice. x Yours, eterr "Prevention Before Cure."

N.Z. FUNGUS FOR CHINESE SOUPS. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 26 October 1939
N.Z. FUNGUS FOR CHINESE SOUPS.
The war' at" present raging in China has had a disastrous effect on a most unusual" New Zealand industry—the export of dried fun-gas, which the Chinese use for ,making vegetable soup.^ About 70 years ago,' a Chinese named Chew Chong, who had settled at New Plymouth on the West Coast of New Zealand, found that t the special kind of fungas found on stumps of trees in bush,, clearings was a market- able commodity in his homeland. He paid the settlers a halfpenny a pound . for dried- fungas, and shipped it to China, where there was an unlimited demand for ft for culinary purposes. The price rose to about 3d. and 4d. a pound, and the gathering of fungas became a means of making a living for struggling bush" set- tlers and the native Maori people. About twenty years ago, when all prices throughout the world were high, dried fungas was worth Bd.
a pound in"New Zealand. To-day the sale of New Zea- land's fungas to China is af the lowest ebb.

NEW ZEALAND'S DESERT.
There are New Zealanders una- ware that a desert exists in the centre of the North Island, writes a Taihape correspondent. Many varied, experiences have befallen ' travellers who have used the Des- ert road, between Tokaanu- aifd ! Waiouru, but the following incir dent will probably brings back some memories:— A party travelling from Toka- anu recently dallied too long there, making their travelling.. time too short to make Taihape that night to keep an appoint- ment, so they decided to. take the shorter route, instead of the 'National Park road.. Their ' troubles began' when halfway through the desert. Bowling along with everything seeming to be in their favour,-they ran into a s'and- drift, and their ear remained fast stuck, so a weary party .tramped into a public works camp- not far distant, where they were put up for the night. They made an early start next morning with tools and equipment to free their ear. Imagine their surprise, however, when they ...
