MAYOR AND MAYORESS RETURN The - Mayor and Mayoress (Coun cillor and Mrs. J. L. Ryan) of th' City bf Heidelberg, with their fam ily returned from a three weeks' holi day at Queenscliff on Monday.

r0o the Editq) . Sir,-I `have. read with' interest a. report :in youi' paper of tihe public meeting at Elthami're Public Hall. I do not rthink it fair to: charge all the ratepayens with "apathy" because they have, not attended a meeting to consider a matter they do not approve of. The majority of heads of families find it hard enough to pay their way and provide'something for their future as well as doing their bit for the men who are at. the front fighting for us.

It must not be overlooked that all the assistance possible is needed for Red Cross work, Hospital Appeals, as sistance for our soldiers, as well as many charitable matters that con stantly arise. Whenever at worthy appeal has been made Eltham resi dents have promptly and generously responded.. Dr. Bradbury stated...
