ATHLETICS. MAYFIELI) SPORTS CLUB (From Our Ow,n Correspondent) The Mayfiold Athletic Sports Club held a very successful &quot; meeting on Thursday last.

HAYWARD'S PICTURES. [Newspaper Article] — Ashburton Guardian — 3 April 1915
HAYWARD'S PICTURES. Dospito the fact that so many Ashburton peoplu were away for the holidays, there was a good attendance at His Majesty's Theatre on Thursday evening. The programme, however, was by no nieaus a &quot;star&quot;, ono and the pictures -.yore very ordinary. Tho chief film was entitled &quot;The Ordeal.&quot; Jean Renyea and his' sweetheart, Helen©, were the central figures. War is declared, and Holene forces Jean to remain at home and leavo the enlisting for others who love less deeply. Jean's refusal to enlist staggers his father, an old soldier, who oyentually arouses his son's patriotic spirit,' and he determines 'twist, love and duty, and, regardless of his sweethearts pleadings, finally enlists. The most thrilling moments of the play are when Jean refuses to reveal his General's position. Ho sees his mother, father, sister, and sweetheart tortured, and put to death, separately.

WHEAT SHORTAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Ashburton Guardian — 3 April 1915
WHEAT SHORTAGE. THE LOAN FROM NEW SOUTH - WALES. STATEMENT K¥ THE PREMIER. WELLINGTON, April 2 Early in the history of the wheat crisis in New Zealand, consequent on the outbreak oi&quot; war, the Dominion Government purchased 100,000 bushels of wheat i'rom the ]Sev South Wales Government, giving an undertaking, however, that if the wheat should later be required in New South Wales, a similar quantity&quot;; be returned by the New Zealand - Government, or, rather, be sold to the New South Wales Government at the original purchase price. In other words, the transaction was a loan rather than a sale. The Prime Minister (Mr Massey) has now received aclvico from the New South Wales Government that the wheat may be required in that State, and that he may therefore have to return it. He informed a reporter to-day that he hoped to-be able to repay this loan out of the wheat over, which he had secured an s option in Canada, as, presumably, there would be no shortage of wheat...

The Ashburton Guardian. Magna est Veritas et Prævalebit. SATURDAY, APRIL 3, 1915. AN INQUIRY NEEDED. In an interesting' communication, published in the &quot;Guardian&quot;-on Thursday, our Wellington correspondent gave brief details of what may be termed a military scandal connected with the occupation of Samoa by -New Zealand troops. Hints of an unsatisfactory state of affairs have reached the Dpniinion from time to time per medium, of invalided soldiers, and it has been stated that the sudden return from Samoa of a prominent officer was due to a heated altercation with an even iiioye brotherofficer on a question of administration. Other stories there are which assert that favouritism has been shown in the selection of members of the Force for the well-paid civil appointments which became necessary when the control of the islands was assumed by the British^ Such stories as these should be largely discounted, because there were- bound to be hundreds of men who were ...
