BRITAIN AND BELGIUM RELIEF FUND.
« _ LITTLE RIVER GALA. The Awa Iti Domain at Little River was filled to overflowing yesfcer-
day, the occasion being the gala organised by the football clubs for the war fund?. Everything went off well, arid, though we could not ascertain last night the exact amount, we understand that every stall did well, and the return should be a substantial sum for the war funds.
One feature of the day was the hockey match between the Okiri Ladies' Club and the Wairewa County Councillors, the game resulting in a win for the ladies by one goal to nil.
The Puaha men won the tug of war, defeating Okute in the final. Pat Giddens wou the footballers' championship, while Eric White won the musical chairs Mr A. V. Hufcchinson won the pillow fight, meeting a number of-rivals.
Mesdames Paul and Radford gave two cakes for weight guessing corn petitions, which realised a big sum each.
The following are some of the workers •—Afternoon tea stall. Mesdaraes Paul, Gilbert, Marlow and Miss Emms ; sweet stall, Misses Joblin and LoDdrigan ; flower stalls, Mesdames Aitken and Murray , shooting gallery, Messrs S.
