OLD AKAROA SCHOOL KITE.
TO THK EDITOB. . Sir,—ln your leader, wherein you ad vacate the purchase by the ratepayers of the old school Bite, I wish to point out that I think you omitted the most important use to which part of the ground should be dsvoted. That is the erection of a monument to commemorate the lives of the men of this district who have died, and others who may be sacrificed in the present war. The commemoration should also embrace those who fell in the Houth African campaign. It is to be regrotted that nothing has been done to replace the tablet that was erected in the boati shed, which was destroyed by fire some time ago. The men who v have given their lives for the flag and freedom should have their names inscrolled in the most prominent position in our town, and I am sure it only requires to be brought under the notice of the citizens to be heartily taken up.and tbe land secured, when later the whole district would join in in providing the monument. Thanking you in anticipation.—Yours faithfully,
