SOLDIER GUESTS OF SPINSTERS' CLUB.
A large group of men from Trentham Military Camp were en- tertained in Wellington last-Sun- day by members of the Spinsters' Club. This was the first occasion on which the Club had arranged such an entertainment for the sol- diers, who voted the day most en joyable.

UPPER HUTT WATER. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 23 November 1939
UPPER HUTT WATER.
Complaints made earlier in the year regarding the quality of the Upper Hutt water are unlikely to be repeated this summer, as elab- orate steps are being taken to im- prove conditions. Analysis show- ed that the water was quite safe to drink; but it was rendered rather unpalatable by a growth in the reservoir This is not peculiar to Upper Hutt, but has also been noted in parts of the Wairarapa. In the next few months the reservoir is to be emp- tied and thoroughly cleaned out. In the meantime, the supply will be maintained by means of a pipe to a. 50,000-gallon 1 storage tank, and by means of the new well at Trentham.

A JOB FOR SAMSON.
During Allenby's big push in Palestine the men were on a forc- ed night, march, and were tired out and fed up. An officer was trying to buck some of them up by talking of the British successes in France, and also of the place?- of interest they would see farther up in Palestine.
He told them that they were now crossing the Plains of Hebron where Samson carried the gates of Gaza, when a deep Cockney voice rang out from the ranks: "What a pity that bloke ain't here to carry this pack of niine!"
