» / ' [FROM OUR COHEESrONDEST,] PROCESSION. i a On Thursday, a procession was organised to advertise a concert for the following day, to be held for the benefit of the Food for Britain Fund, | The procession was a great success, although got up in a hurry. A Long Tom, a Dreadnought (with steam up) and an teroplane figured in the pro cession, also Natives in costumo and a large number of horse and cycle scouts. CONCERT, The concert held on Friday night for the benefit of the Food for Britain Fund was attended by a very large number of people, the seating accom modation not being sufficient, Ie I spoke well for the loyalty of thu I people of Little River to see such a large audience, as the night was bi - terly 'cold and blustery. Mr Coop gave a short statement of tbe various funds, and Mr Montgomery gave a first class patriotic j speech. _ I A collection was taken up in the | , hall, with the result tbat £42 63 2d j was collected. Tbe expenses of the J concert are practically nothing. The following was tbe programme : —Instrumental overture, "Cuckoo Valetta," orchestra; song, 'sons of the Sea," Mr T. Williams; glee, "Men of Harlicb," Main School children; 1 song, "Tommy Atkins," Mr Hutchin* « son; recitation, "Charge of the Light Brigade," Mr Shaw. The second part was in tbe form of a camp fire scene, the performers being gathered round a camp fire with a field gun, tent and piled rifles showing. This was very eflective indeed, and a very excellent feature of the entertainment. "Vocal quartette," "Tenting on the Old Camp Ground," Messrs Williams, Wright, Webb and Marlon-; song (comic), "Alphonso Spigborn," Mr Newton; song, "The Englishman," Mr Wright; song, "Red, White and Blue," "Mr T. Skippfar; song, "The Sergeant's Wedding," Mr Marlow; National Anthem of France, "La Marsellaise" (in French), Mr Watson; recitation, "Our Folk," Mr Shaw; song, "Bonnie Jean," Mr Webb; National eong, "Sons of New Zealard," Mr Richards; song, "My Goodnes," Mr Frajf Coop , vocal quar tette, "Haeramai," Messrs Williams, Webb, and Skipper (2)' glee, "Hag of Britain," Native school children A dance was held after the concert * Tbe music was supplied gratis princit pally by Messrs Londrigan (piano) and Joblin (cornet).
