Correspondence PUBLIC HALL, ELTHAM (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 12 July 1940
Correspondence PUBLIC HALL, ELTHAM ('Io the Editor.) Sir,-Owing. to. war conditions it seems the question.of the hall is likely to be postponed for some years.' The- Cbommittee should publish a list of contributors and amounts in cluding-those (if any) who donated at the .time of the Queen Carnival. Of- course, details cannot b'e giveii in cases .of entertainments and such like.. I',understand"a loan of about '£1.00 was made from the funds to pay a debt on the present hall. :I expect this Chas been paid back-by now. as it was irregular to have used the money for: that purpose. As the" Government want all the money they can get, I suggest the committee` should at once -invest all the monies in -War Certificates and advertise the fact so that contributors could' object to the .proposal if they wished to do so. Yours etc., "HALL "SUPPORTER." Elthaim, July 6, 1940.
