R.S.L. NEWS. JUNE MEETING. ---o The June meeting of the Alexandra sub-branch R.S.S.A.I.L.A., held in the club rooms on Friday last, was dis- appointing as regards attendance. However, the foggy and cold condi- tions and the fact that a popular ball was being held must be taken into account. It is a very significant fac- tor, though, that the attendances at recent meetings have largely com- prised members who are resident in outlying districts. Members who live in the town and are within easy walk- ing distance of the club rooms are conspicuous by virtue of their habit- ual absence. It would be encourag- ing to see larger attendances at the meetings. Late Subscriptions. There are still a few outstanding subscriptions due, and as the execu- tive are loth to issue reminders to defaulters, if avoidable, a strong re- quest is being made to such members to forward their subs. Conference Agenda. The meeting discussed several of the items on the agenda for the con- ference. It was resolved ...
