MEN'S HOCKEY. SENIOR. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 11 July 1940
In a friendly. match with the Air Force, the Warriors fielded a team below usual strength, four of the regulars being away, but one vacancy was filled by an ex-mem- ber of the Club in .Ron Pearce, who was on short leave from naval duties. Ron played a sound game, and would not need a great deal of practice to be able to hold his own with the best in the Club. Air Force played a good sound game, and ran out the winners by three goals to one. As no cham- pionship points are in matches against the Air Force, the local boys forgot all.their worries and played the airmen at their own game—good clean hockey, ' played just for the pleasure; of'it.-." R. Clyde played his usual good game, and was rewarded by scor- ing Warriors only go ah Adam Stent; an ex-Warrior, was\ one of the Air Force "leading lights," and. apparently enjoyed the out- ing'against his old Club.

FOOTBALL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 11 July 1940
The Thirds lost the toss to Johnsonville at Wakefield Park on Saturday, Johnsonville electing to take' the southern end-with a Strong . wind behind them. The game was more- or less a mud scramble and play was mostly confined to the forwards, but at intervals, the Upper Hutt backs were seen in action owing to the forwards getting the ball, in the scrums, but Johnsonville were strong on defence and there was no score in the first spell. In the second half, with the wind to advantage, the Thirds pene- trated deep into Johnsonville ter- ritory and it was not long before Oram, was able to go over for a try which was converted by Grib- ben. Shortly afterwards, in some light work by the - forwards, the ball was hooked out to Stott, who sent it out to Gribben who, being in a good position, took a pot at goal which went over. The game ended in favour of Upper Hutt by 9—o and this team is now second equal with Sea- toun with Taita at the top of the ladder. • Keep it up T...
JUNIORS. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 11 July 1940
The Juniors met and defeated Training College on Saturday last by 12 points to nine. Cooper obtained the full amount of points for the local team by two tries, one conversion and a pen- alty goal. R. Southee was very unlu jky in not scoring on one or two oc: casions. . Outstanding players were N. McCarthy, full-back, who once again demonstrated his capabili- ties as a iast line of defence, also W. Cooper, R. Skerten, S. Dalton, J. Wyeth and Lorrigan.
FIFTH GRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 11 July 1940
After several reverses, the Fifths regained winning form to defeat Eastbourne 6—3 at Hutt Park on Saturday. Franz and Stowell scored good tries for the local lads, while the Seasiders' points resulted from a penalty goal. The winning margin would - Jiave been greater had heavy rain not put-back play out of the ques- tion in the second spell. It was hard to distinguish among a solid pack of forwards, but three who were in the thick of the play all the way were Ber- ri ngton, Wimms * and Stowell. . The backs did not receive many opportunities, but Hoare played a good game and was unlucky to cross the dead-ball line after a- fine passing movement with R. O'Reilly, while Gilbert played a consistent game behind the scrum.

NEW ZEALAND TROOPS.
HIGH COMMISSIONER PAY'S VISIT TO SECOND ECHELON.
WILL MAINTAIN TRADITION
There was an inspiring scene somewhere in England, when Mr. W. J. Jordan, High Commissioner for New Zealand, inspected the New Zealand forces as they stood in long deep ranks on the parade ground against a background of trees. Mr. Jordan saw' also the artil- lery, engineers, signallers and the medical unit. The Maoris did not give their war cry, but greeted Mr. Jordan with a flash of bay- onets in a general. salute, carried out with precision. Then they laid down their rifles and sat on the gra!ss in accordance with the traditional custom, listening to their chief. Mr. Jordan told all that they are among friends. "I remember when other New Zealanders pa- , raded in the same way in Britain. They did a job," said the High Commissioner. ",You have a big job-and will do it." ; He said he knew they would play the game, not only to main- tain the reputatio...
LETTERS TO SOLDIERS CORRECT ADDRESSING. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 11 July 1940
LETTERS TO SOLDIERS
Owing to the non-inclusion of , the. Echelon—First pr Second, as the case may be—in the address, the Post Office is experiencing dif- ficulty in correctly sorting eorre-
spondence for members of the New Zealand Expeditionary Force ovei- seas. The omission of the echelon number may result in correspon- dence being dispatched to the wrong country, involving long de- lay in delivery. The number of the echelon is particularly neces- sary on correspondence for mem- bers of divisional 'anits, namely, Divisional Signals, Divisonal- Am : munition Company, Divisional Pe- trol Company, etc., because- in such cases there is no' other indica- tion of the echelon to "which the soldier is attached. The following are specimen addresses: — 5001 Private J. Brown, D. Com- pany, 19th Wellington Rifle Bat- talion, First Echelon Overseas. ~ 1265 Private H. Jones, C. Com- pany, 21st Auckland) Rifle Bat- talion, Second Echelon Overseas.
MORE PRODUCTION. APPEAL TO FARMERS: NEW SEASON'S PROGRAMME. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 11 July 1940
APPEAL TO FARMERS:
NEW SEASON'S PROGRAMME.
Emphasising how to-day the products of the soil were the sin- ews of war, the Minister of Agri- culture (the Hon. W. L. Martin), in an address, said that nothing less than maximum production on the part of the farmers was good enough-at the present time. The Minister said every effort was being made to maintain farm supplies. Of course, many mater- ials were no longer available; but likely substitutes were being in- vestigated or tested. The raw materials used in fertiliser making had risen in price, but the Govern- ment had been able by subsidies to keep the price of superphosphate at pre-war level, and if the farmer . took advantage of the rebate on used sacks he would obtain this .fertiliser at below pre-war level. Steps were also being taken to.' maintain the supply of seeds. They grew in New Zealand seeds equal to.the best in the world. Ar- rangements had been made for seeds to be grown in the Domin- ...
