GREEKS GIVE £1,639.
ONE DAY'S TAKINGS.
PATRIOTIC FUND BENEFITS
Greeks resident in the Dominion recently decided to give the whole of one day's takings to the Nation- al Patriotic Fund. With '•other contributions, which include a days wages from those in employ- ment, the sum reached £1,639, £777 of which was Wellington's contribution. ' The Greeks made this effort in appreciation of the protection and privileges enjoyed in the land of their adoption, stated the Consul- General for Greece in New Zea- land, Mr. T. E. Y. Seddon. Mr. Seddon said that he had re- ceived the following letter from the Prime Minister (the Rt. Hon, P/Fraser) :—- ---"I was very pleased indeed to note the splendid generosity of the Greek community throughout l rthe Dominion and particularly the substantial amount subscribed by the Greeks in Wellington, many of whom I count as my friends.

THE PLODDER. Every Digger knows that most of the_ telephone linesmen during the last war worked singly. One such man in the Battle of Mess- ines went on duty one evening at eight o'clock and came off next afternoon at three. During the intervening hours he plodded ii_ the darkness, over shell holes, through barb wire, and all the debris of a great battle, repairing the wires between various signal strir tions in the area. No sooner would he get one line repaired than another would be blown sky high. Through the long, trying hours, alone, he worked away, maintaining those vital links on which so much depended, until he was relieved. Had he been a pessimist he could not have stood it. Think of him, and thousands of others like him. There are men like! liim to-day. Are you going to let them down?

SILVERSTREAM FIRE BRIGADE.
Satisfaction was expressed by the Inspection Officer at the monthly parade. Superintendent Mason occupied the Chair at the usual biisihess meeting. A cheery letter was received from Fireman Clutterbuck, who was Treasurer : of the Brigade. An acting trea- surer was 'appointed pending his return. Offers of assistance from ex-fireman- Smyrk and J. Bittaner, were received 'and ■. accepted for the duration of the War. This will relieve the anxiety of the officers, ■■ owing to the reduction of mem- bers. Superintendent Mason re- ported forming a small Junior Brigade, comprised of a number- of keen lads in the district. He gives them instruction in fire bri- gade methods one night each: week. The boys are taking great
interest in this work, and should prove a valuable auxiliary to the senior brigade. Arrangements for the Annual Dance are well in hand, and the affair promises lo be a great success.

ENTERTAINMENT. MERLE OBERON STARS IN KORDA COMEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 25 July 1940
MERLE OBERON STARS IN KORDA COMEDY.
This week-end the Mayfair Theatre are screening the latest Alexander Korda Technicolour picture, "Over the Moon." This is a comedy romance of refreshing originality, starring Merle Oberon with a strong supporting cast headed by Rex Harrison,,, Louis Borrell, Robert Douglas, Jeans and Zena Dare. The story, written specially for the star by Robert Sherwood, author of "The Ghost Goes West" and one, of America's most suc- cessful and talented dramatists, provides Miss Oberon with a role in direct contrast to the heavy drama of "Wuthering Heights." She is cast as a rather kittenish counterpart to "Mr. Deeds," as a North country girl who inherits an enormous fortune and slips into life of gaiety, forgetting her local doctor sweetheart. . "'/■-. Her activities at the Monte Carlo gaming tables, the smart night clubs of London, the cafes of Paris, and the gay casinos and golden sands of the Riviera are front page news while her m...
GINGER ROGERS SOLVES FAMILY TROUBLES IN FIFTH AVENUE GIRL. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 25 July 1940
GINGER ROGERS SOLVES FAMILY TROUBLES IN FIFTH AVENUE GIRL.
How to Fix Up Your Family in Ten Easy Lessons—this is the hilarious basis of Ginger Rogers' newest starring vehicle, '"Fifth Avenue Girl." The family belongs to Walter Connolly, an amiable but discour- aged millionaire whose wife and children have become too selfish to pay any attention to him. A chance encounter in Central Park with a penniless but quite philosophical girl, interests the millionaire. He takes her out on a gay night-clubbing evening to celebrate his birthday and wakes up the next morning to discover that he brought her home with him. - v The incident awakens his wife's deepest suspicions, which in turn gives the millionaire an idea. He secretly pays the girl to stay on as a guest, and to pose as some- thing of a gold-digger. The scheme works brilliantly. Wife
and children immediately become very solicitous,- over- his welfare, give up their personal pursuits to attend to thiis new problem. And in...

CONDUCT OF WAR.
BERNARD SHAW'S ADVICE TO BRITAIN.
THE IRISH POSITION.
Mr. Bernard Shaw, in an inter-' view in London, gave his opinion of the international situation "and advice to Britain on the conduct of the war.' ; "First, I warn you that, because I think clearly, I am regarded as Public Enemy No. 1," he said! "Russia's acton in taking over Rumanian areas is ~ purely self- protective. Russia is attending to her own interests in the manner in which she attended to them in Finland and Poland, except' that in Poland poor Mr. Hitler had to invade and subject the country be- fore Russia selected and took her bit.'' 7 , ;- .- 7 : ..; . ; ' .._,; Mr. Shaw discussed. Germany's reactions to Russia's Rumanian activities,, and said that Germany naturally was surprised, as Stalin and Hitler were two men who were most unlikely to base their relations upon mutual arrange- ments. Nevertheless, Mr. Shaw does not believe there is any pos- sibility of positive results from a Ger...
