THE CHILDREN'S FUTURE.
Now that so many men sa>& returning the public are forcefully reminded of the great number of men who wilL never return at all. The responsibility of looking after those whom "Digger' * left, behind devolves upon every individual in New Zealand. One of the greatest problems in this connection is that of the education of the children, whose fathers have died in the Great War. The. Trentliam Dominion. Scholarships Fund, which exists for the purpose of providing Scholarships for the children, is being vigorously pushed forward by-its promoters. Colonel H. 11. Potter, C.M.G., is devoting a great deal of his time and energies to the cause. Dr. Riddell, who is so well known in Hawke's Bay and elsewhere for his enthusiastic interest in,all the problems which, concerns the Diggers, _is also working hard for "Digger's Kiddies." The scheme is supported by Dr. J.-W. Anderson, Director of Education in New Zealand, and MajorGeneral Sir A. W. Robin, K.C.M.G., C.8., who, together with Colonel H. R,. Potter, C.M.G., are the Trustees. A great many other influential gentlemen, throughout the Dominion are using their best efforts . for the furtherance of the scheme, and results so far are very satisfactory, the public responding very willingly to their appeal. The Art Union really offers some ■splendid chances of prizes, which total in value about £6300, including the first .prize, valued at £1000. There are over 170 prizes, and the shilling tickets which are on sale everywhere in New Zealand all have an equal chance of winning any or all of these. Fuller particulars appear in the advertisements. . 4 0
