There was a small attendance at a meeting of the ltakaia Soldiers' Entertainment Committee, held in the Library, for the purpose of winding up affairs in connection with the recent reception to returned men. The bal-ance-sheet showed: Sale of tickets;, £23 4s; door takings, £24 3s; sale ot programmes, £6 18s; 1 and sale of soft drinks. £5 4s 6d. The expenses came to £25 Is 3d, leaving a credit balance of £34 8s 3d. Apart from this source of income the committee has £93 3s 9d in hand, or a total of £127 12s; but against this has to be placed the cost of medals, which'has been about £100 to date, so that practically only £27 12s remains available for further presentations and other activities of the committee. The balance-sheet was adopted, and the accounts ordered to be paid. In connection with the peace celebrations the sub-committee reported that they had not so far been able to secure a supply of fireworks or engage a band. Preliminary arrangements for a, liuffe bonfire have been made. In view of the large number of soldiers presently returning, it was resolved to hold another reception.-
