ELECTORS! [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 1 June 1939
Ladies and Gentlemen,. The Labour Party has great plea- sure in presenting to you the candi- date of Mr. J. Blewman for the Mayoralty of Upper Hutt; and in doing so confidently appeal to all Labour supporters t,o wholeheartedly support him on June 10th next. ' It is very important to remember that the greatest benefit, will come from our Government's 1 wonderful legislation only if we retain power on our Local Bodies, with men who are sympathetic towards the Govern- ment. It must appear obvious to all con- cerned that the candidates opposing Mr. Blewman in the present contest . have no desire to see Labour's Policy carried into effect, otherwise' they would refrain from contesting the Mayoral seat on this occasion. It is our unanimous opinion that Mr. Blewman's long experience asso- ciated with his mature judgment lit him as theological choice of the elec- tors as Chief Magistrate of the Bor-, ough. These outstanding qualifications make him the most reliable candi- d...

An election advert, in last week's "Leader" asserts "Twelve . months ago a legacy of chaos and puhlicly ventilated complaints. To-day, thor- ough organisation and compliment- ary letters replace' them." For colossal impudence and mis- representation, this assertion not only "take's the bun" but the bake- house also! During the McCurdy Mayoralty ' terms, 1931-33, 1933-35 and 1935- ---38, the fates were reduced;' pay- ments- in two instalments (winter and summer, due dates, fixed to ease' the burden; and discounts for prompt payment of rates were re-in- troduced.

UPPER HUTT'S CLOSE CALL
Upper Hutt Juniors were aU out on Saturday last to maintain their winning status when- they met and narrowly defeated Ath- letic by 10 points to eight. From the kick-off, Athletic tools play right iiito Upper Hutt's terri- tory, their back division showing some very five combination.. A scrummage on • Upper Hutt's twenty-five yard line relieved the situation, Skerton getting the ball away to his backs who made great headway. A forward rush by the local forwards gave them a great opportunity to open up the score, the ball coming • out from a . scramble to Clements who was un- marked, but -he missed an easy chance. Skerton opened up the score'a little later with a great .drop- kick. Athletic started another move and some fine passing was ".o'fiin seen. A breakaway by their .backs saw them making straight for the Upper Hutt's line,-Jrat Skerton - coming up'fast saved the situation. Half-time arrived with ho further score. • The second half ...

Skerton as usual played a great ffame at half. Of the other backs, McCarthy was the best of a very mediocre lot, Jillet, Whiteman. "Wveth and St. .Johnston were the pick of the forwards. McNeil did not play up to hi& ordinary standard. - The Athletic back division were superior to the locals and some great i -passing movements were witnessed.
