' Although the collection was not as' varied'' as in' other years, the quality of the work showed cousider ahle improvement. 'Spectators were especial ly appreciative of the at tractively displayed sugar bag and woodwork, with much interest being shown for a tucker box made from a kerosene tin and dog chains made from a very difficult to-work steel. 'The new photographic section wilL probably grow,' said Mr, Wheelwright, 'but I would like to point out to competitors that the display is a big item in such work and the intrinsic interest of the subjects chosen should he always kept in mind. A few interesting subjects well displayed are of a higher value for show purposes than tbose of a purely personal interest.' . Tbe judge also gave much praise to a particularly fine piece of chip carving on one* of the t...

SHOW SECRETARY'S PLEASURE Mr. R. L. (Jorliam, Rugby's popular Show Sec retary since 1933, expressed his pleasure with the way lbe Show went off. In an interview with the 'News' representative, Mr. Gorham said that in most sections the 'number of entries -had improved with the quality. This was most gratifying in view of the splendid work by all concerned. That entries in (he sheep, wool and poultry sec tions had fallen off was obvious and rather disap pointing, but this was largely offset by the im provements in other sections, and the grounds, buildings, and conduct of the Show. Mr. Gorham had nothing but the highest praise for the wonderful work carried out by. the ladies' committee. Enough thanks could not be given to those people who so 'generously and willingly gave dona tions. Mr. Gorham stateu that the funds raised would be used for the erection of a supper room adjoining the Memorial Hall which was built in 1935.
