Dear. Sir, '-, ■'■■.'. .■*'.'" In perusing last week's issue of your delightful, little journal, I: was. amazed to read a letter from the Hutt Borough Rate- payers and Citizens' Association, purporting, to air the views of some of its members in caustically criticising. the Council for its at- titude towards breaches of by- laws by juvenile cyclists. • As a parent myself, and.for the benefit of hundreds of other .par- ents within the Borough, let us examine the position and the re- spective outlooks of the two bodies. concerned. : The Council say.. "we would like our children warned' if found breaking the law and the parents
given the opportunity of taking appropriate action towards avoid- ing .a recurrence of.the offence, then if this fails, a prosecution will follow." --.." *"" ■ The Ratepayers' Association say-j in effect, "we would like our children, even though' first offend- ers, dragged before the Court and ourselves mulcted in ' fines and costs, b...

POULTRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 16 March 1939
Upper Hiitt Breeders are well to the fore again in their respect- ive sections in the recent Egg Lay- ing Contests. At Taranaki, Mr. S. T. Bason, in the heavy breed with his Langsftan strain,- carried the day in-the; single, bird test with 306 eggs, and in the three bird team with .801 eggs. The scbrfis of Mr. Bason's birds constitute |i New Zealand record for tlie br'|ed. and the birds are still being held and will probably create a Australian record. At ;. ;Pasanui / (Christchurch), Mr. Bason has also been success- ful, having* won again 'in the heavy ' bird contest, but the scores are not yet available. In the Light. Breed Test at •.Taranaki, ,^j|[i ; . J. T. . Hazelwood won the s\ngle bird test with n ; total of 311 eggs. ".. '

FIRE BRIGADE DEMONSTRATION. UPPER HUTT'S FINE ACHIEVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 16 March 1939
FIRE BRIGADE DEMONSTRATION.
UPPER HUTT'S FINE ACHIEVEMENT.
On Friday last many were the gloomy faces, of certain well- known firemen in the district, as. up to then the local, hoys at the demonstration had only collected 19| points, hence the gloominess. However, on Saturday evening, quite a different expression was exhibited when it became known that the boys had finished, up third in the competition with 47 Brigades. On the final day the team collected points, making the; grand total, 59 points. Among the prizes won, was the New Zealand Championship for the 4-men Lumber, taking 36 seconds. The residents of- Upper Hult. should, indeed be proud of.the fact that the team representing the. Brigade rose to such a posi- tion, "especially considering ; that at the commencement of the final day of the demonstration they were down to 18th position. . Superintendent Wakelin, stated that the would welcome any people of the district' to in- spect the Fire Station and view the trop...
CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 16 March 1939
(To the Editor.) Dear Sir, It was' with much regret that I noticed a press report to the effect that a letter from.the Upper Hutt Borough Ratepayers and Citizens' Association re prosecuting of juv- enile offenders against the by- laws, be not received at the last Council meeting. I- wish to enter an .emphatic protest against the autocratic at- titude of.the Council in. this mat- ter, since in no way could the letter be described as hostile, .and. if it is the intention of the Coun- cil to take up a similar attitude,, whenever their attention is drawn to.matters' which are their burden duty to handle with a firm hand, the future development of Upper Hutt is in very unsafe hands. I have been given to* understand that, it was at the written request of the Council, that the local Traffic Inspector was requested t? enforce the- Council by-laws, par- ticular attention being paid r.o Martin Street, and it would ap- pear, that in the execution of his duties, without 'f...

DISTRICT NURSE COMMITTEE.
The final meeting of-the. District Nurse Committee was held on Friday evening last, Mr. J. Purvis presiding. '-,",-"';■ The Chairman stated that when the Committee was formed several years ago, it was their .object to raise a certain . sum per year to help, pay for the nurses' salary. The time has now arrived when such need was not 'further requir- ed, and the Hospital Board had notified- the: Committee ..that in future there would be no need for a subsidy. Mr: A.: J: McCurdy stated' that the Committee had : carried out the object it had' been formed for and they had 'been able, to raise, the necessary ■;"-.'. money; but now the Hospital Board, did not require the subsidy, and he would suggest that the Committee cease to func- tion, and the money held -in trust by. the Committee to be sent to the Hospital Board. The position now is that the money which harl been collected in the past for this worthy. object could now go to other charitable 'organisati...
