NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 11 May 1939
. The second . match' proved that Upper Hutt has a great junior team, and under the direction/of Mr. J. Paul, their coach, should go -a long way. Oriental was unlucky to lose one of their players in the second half—through injury. The whole of the back division played good football, with Mc- Carthy outstanding, \ who played one of his best games on the park. Of the . forwards, McNeil. Wyeth and Francis were the pick. McNeil is a tiger for work and simply relishes in hard clean football. On No. 2 ground,* Hutt (Army) met Marist and a very good game was witnessed. The first half Army had the best of the game, and at the interval had a sub- stantial lead. The second half Showed Marist in its true'spirit.
and a very exciting game con- cluded -with the Marist boys wiu- ners by 23—18. The game was exciting from start to finish, and Army were perhaps a' little un- lucky in not sharing the points with their opponents. Mr. O. J. Plummer ably con- trolled the game.
OTHER RESULTS. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 11 May 1939
Upper Hutt Thirds defeated ; Oriental by 24—9. The feature of this game, that out of the. 24 points scored by Upper Hutt, Cooper was responsible for 21 of them. Upper Hutt Fourths Went under to Petone by 17 points to nil. The Fifths also suffered defeat at the hands of Wellington by 12 points to five:

Death and Funeral of Mr.P. Robertson
MANY PUBLIC PEOPLE PRESENT.
The news of the death of Mr. Peter Robertson, Mayor of Upper Hutt, on Sunday last cast a gloom over the whole of the borough. Throughout his residence iii Upper Hutt Mr. Robertson had been looked upon as a friend to all and the public offices held; by- him have always been carried out with distinction and credit to the borough. His death removes from our midst a man who was always looked upon as being fair-minded in whatever office he filled. Born at Eaglehawk, Bendigo, Australia, on May 14th, 1880, Mr. . Robertson came to New Zealand in 1900, taking up residence in Lower Hntt. In 1911 he com- menced business at Upper Hutt as a coach-builder and undertak- er, and later in conjunction with the late Mr.' Dick operated a carrying business between Upper Hntt and Wellington. From the time of taking uprr- s sidence -in this district he became very active in public and local body work. Du...
