SEATS ON BOARD. FREE AMBULANCE SERVICE.
.The Wellington Hospital Board last Thursday discussed the ques- tion of representation on the Free Ambulance Board. It was pointed out-that the Hospital Board's grant to the ambulance' service was now £1600, and members agreed that they should have two representatives on the board of that organisation. A letter from the Free Ambulance stated that the constitution permitted of one representative frdm each local body, but an associate member could be appointed in addition in each case. It was mentioned that the Makara County, with a grant of £86, the Hutt County with £150, .and -Wellington City- with £500 each had equal representation with the Hospital Board.

On a vote being taken Mr. A. H. Carman was selected for the second posi- tion. The other nominees w...

PEACOCKS BRING ME ILL-LUCK.
(By Compton MacKenzie.)
(From the "Sunday Dispatch" London.)
What, are the most popular superstitions in this country1? I should guess the dislike of sit- ting down thirteen at table, spill- ing the salt, and walking, under a - ladder. N ■ ' - The first can be traced to thoughts connected with the Last Supper, and so far as I can make out has nothing to. do with any be- lief in thirteen as an unlucky num- ber. In fact, the association of the number 13 with - ill-luck is prob- ably an extension of the thirteen- at-table superstition. "" Yet so widely spread is this dread, of thirteen that you will- often find the number omitted "from the. bedroom of an hotel. I have seen a house in a row num- bered 12a to avert misfortune— foolishly, it may be added, be- cause to' call a house 12a cannot change its being the thirteenth house. The bad omen of spilling the salt is of great'antiquity. To eat salt with a man once upon a time sealed a bond of ...

RUSSIA FIGHTS DISEASE. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 8 August 1940
RUSSIA FIGHTS DISEASE.
(By Joan McMichael).
A friend .of mine who visited Russia last' year %as astonished to find them building wooden hospitals. "These won't last twenty f years, will they?" 7he asked doubtfully. "They aren't meant to." Avas the answer. "They will either be out of date in twenty years, or, better still, they won't be needed." Was this sheer bravado, or does the progress in preventive medicine in Russia .justify such optimism? • You can 'perhaps form an opinion on that question if I describe to you what I saAv of the actual working of State medicine in the Soviet Union when, as ,one of a. group of doctors, [ spent almost a month studying .the medical services in Leningrad, . Moscow, Kharkov, " and Kiev. I shall describe things exactly as I saw them, but you will "remember that what I am describing is prob- ably the nearest approach, in prac-' tice, to the Russian aims in medi- cine. \ Let us begin by discovering;..what happens to you if you fall ill ove...
