CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 2 November 1939
(To the Editor)
Sir, —As a resident of the dis- trict, T wish to enquire what has happened to the "Swimming Bath" at Maidstone Park, has it gone astray or is it like some of the other promises we have heard from time to time, such as a new fire station, ladies' rest-room, and decent roads. I am quite sure that if our late .Mayor had been spared, he would have seen that the baths were gone on with. Your little paper has certainly neglected the opportunity of pushing'-what-I and many--"others thought, would have been a great asset to the Borough, more so* than an Aviary or Motor Camp. I have been given to under- stand that the Education Board were prepared to assist in build- in sr the baths to the amount of £200! Probably the Council will got going on the question so that by the next summer there will be a swimming bath., in the Park. Now then, Councillor Poison, as Chairman .of the Reserves.' what about' it? Yours, truly, "Lover of Swimming."

ROSE DAY APPEAL. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 9 November 1939
ROSE DAY APPEAL.
The Annual Rose Day Appeal organised by the Returned Sol- diers' Association will be held to-- morrow (Friday), and residents are asked to help the local Branch by purchasing their emblems locally. All monies collected go into a special fund which is divided up among various allied organisations as well as the Returned Soldiers' Association. It is then redistri- buted to the various branches to assist any Returned Soldier sick or up against -it, and we may say that there are many returned men who are breaking up now. Twenty-one years ago, Armist- ice was signed, but to-day more and more Returned Soldiers are breaking iip through those strenu- ous war years. Although their disabilities cannot be put down directly _ to their war service (otherwise a war pension would be provided), we know that the war is responsible. Therefore we appeal to all to sive generously and thus help the boys who, nearly a quarter of a century ago gave all.
