Ist UPPER HUTT TROOP BOY SCOUTS.
A Parents' Evening . held re- cently by the above Group was a great success, over 60 parents being present. After Flag break, games were the order of; the evening, inter- spersed with items, by the boys and the girl guides.. The outstanding items were the Mouth Organ Band which rendered a number of. popular tunes. ' The band was only formed about ten days before the Par- ents' . Evening and considering they, had only had four practices together they gave quite a good performance, and tap dancing by Scout Bob McCrea was greatly enjoyed. ' • A dainty supper was served by the members of the Group Com- and all too quickly the end of the evening came with every- one joining ir. the singing of Taps. The only regrettable feature of the evening was the removal of fifteen cycle lamp bulbs from the boy's bicycles parked outside of the hall, by some irresponsible person or persons.

UPPER HUTT BRANCH OF LEAGUE OF MOTHERS.
'Fathers' Evening' was a great success; a large number attending. Mrs. Castle, President, was in the Chair,, and gave all Fathers and Mothers a hearty welcome. Mrs. Knox-Gilm,er choose for address, "Notables I have met Abroad" and many well known names followed: Mr. Neville Chamberlain, Mr. Baldwin, Lord Snell the Labour Peer, Mr. Ram- say McDonald .and his daughter, Lady Astor, who greatly appealed to the speaker, and the Duchess of Atholl. Horticulturally, MrsV Gilmer met Lord Rothschild, who owns the largest collection of rhododendrons in the worlds, some 400 acres in the South of France. In America, President and Mrs., Roosevelt proved very charming, also Miss Perkins, Min- ister of Labour in New York and Mary Allery, Chief of the "Women Police. Of great interest to her listeners was a meeting with Lady Alice Fergusson, founder of the League of Mothers, in New Zea- land, who sent greetings, also Lord and Lady Bledisloe, who possess a...
LABOUR SECRETARY'S APPEAL. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 25 May 1939
LABOUR SECRETARY'S APPEAL.
' (To the Electors). I confidently appeal to all sup- porters of the Labour Party and friends of the late Mayor, Mr. P. Robertson, to initiate a vigorous campaign on behalf of Labour's of- ficial candidate for N the Mayoralty, Mr. J. Blewman. It is of paramount importance that the Labour majority on the Borough Council remain intact; and it is only by electing a Labour Mayor that Labour's policy, -which received the definite endorsement of the electors just twelve months ago, should be implemented in the interests of the electors generally. It is equally imperative that the ideals and aspirations of the late Peter Robertson should be realised, and who would suggest a finer monu- ment to the late Mayor's ener- getic service, in th* interests of the residents of the district than to fill the position which he honoured with such conspicuous ability, with a man who js pledged to give effect to that policy which Mr. Robertson pursued up to his untimely de...

MAYORAL CONTEST. ANNOUNCING THE CANDIDATURE OF CU. RENDLE (Chairman of the Works Committee). The most eligible candidate to represent your Bor- ough, straightforward, reasonable and just, whose deci- sions can be justified by logical reasoning. Admitted by all to be the soundest and most fair- minded man on the Council, combining natural ability with experience and mature judgment. Don't be Misled. It is only the strong candidate who is attacked by one-sided criticisms. Come and hear both sides and ventilate, any grievance. He will welcome.the opportunity of making first-hand explanations. Twelve months ago a legacy of chaos and publicly ven- tilated complaints. To-day, thorough organisation and complimentary letters replace them.

FAREWELL PRESENTATION TO MR G. MELLOR.
POPULAR OFFICER OF THE POST AND TELEGRAPH DEPARTMENT.
Many business people gathered together on Tuesday evening, last to wish farewell to.Mr. G.'Mellor of the Post Office; Upper Hutt."
Mr. Mellor has been in the Upper Hutt Post Office for six- teen years and is now leaving on promotion as Postmaster for Col- lingwood in the South Island.
In making a presentation of a travelling rug to Mr. Mellor and crystal ware to Mrs. IMellor, the Deputy-Mayor, Mr. J;. Blewman, stated that the whole of the com- munity were sorry to know that the guest of the evening was leaving the .district, but at the same time were plegised to know that it meant promotion.
Since Mr. Mellor has resided in the district, he has held executive positions in the Ptost Office,- and has.always done his job well. The loss the district would sustain through his transfer would be Collingwood's gain.- On behalf of the district, Mr. Blewman wish- ed Mr. Me...

LOCAL AND GENERAL.
.There is' still gorse to burn in the Silverstream area. Early .oh Friday evening the Fire Brigade were called to subdue a . gorse fire at Dunn's Road; The firemen were promptly on the scene, and prevented the fire spreading over the hill where" it would have en- dangered a number of week-end bachs. The übiquitous small boy was much in evidence and some of-them- worked hard as' voluntary beaters. The way in which the local Councillor, Mr. Lancaster, turns put "to- daylight alarms, is much appreciated by the mem- bers of the Brigade.
CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 25 May 1939
It is understood that the opin- ions, criticisms, or suggestions ex- their own. and not necessarily the views of the "Leader." Corres- pondence can appear under a nom-de-plume but correspondents must enclose their name and ad- dress to the Editor. (To the Editor). Sir,—lf anything further were needed to convince the average ratepayer of the necessity fpr local body reform, it. would' be some of the arguments used in the Council discussion of various proposals, to approach the Loans- Board for permission to borrow by way of special order. These may be necessary..or not; that is largely a matter for. expert judg- ment. What concerns the rate- payers more deeply is the appar- ent attitude of Councillors. In the interest of their ratepayers,- such.Councillors may be expected to scrutinise closely the expendi- ture of public money, and it is against this special order that ratepayers protest. There is no need to enter into the merits of these protests; all the'Counc...
