Duribg Eodney's " Hockey Week " in Auckland two very pleasant evenings were spent. The first was at the Hotel Noithland, when those of the boys who were staying there entertained those of the girls who had gone to town to " barrack " for Eodney. A very happy evening was spent with competitions and music, Miss TJna Scott and Mr J. Morison contributing songs, and Mr B. M. Grant giving a recitation. During supper Mrs Evans, the proprietress, eyed in turn each of the twenty-odd Jtodney-ites, then turning to one exclaimed: " What a nice lot of people there must be in Warkworth ! Are they all like this ?" So beware, you " other half" of Warkworth, and live up to your reputation I
A number of Kodney-ites were also present at a dance in St. Mark's Hall, Eemuera, given by the Auckland Ladies' Hockey Association in honour of the Whangarei ladies' team. They had a delightful time in spite of the pillars which were apt to get in one's way; and in spite of the fajt that their cars were ordered for I o'clock while the dance ended before 12. Warkworth Hall seems .a dear old hall after all, and Rodney-/'dance music will surely be welcomed again. It is rumoured, however, that a One-step will be introduced at the first opportunity.
