BANKS PENINSULA A. & P. ASSOCIATION.
Wβ have received the programme of Banks Peninsula A. & P. Show which as u-ual is of an ambitious obaraeter. Hpeciai Prizes, contrary to general expectation in a war year amounted to no less than £220. Aβ wee to be expected a special feature ia made of military claspes, for which
there are four clauses. Bunks Penio Kula pbould be especially, fitted for breeding active and bardy horses for remount purposes, and we hope to see a large enljry in these useful classes. We notice that the Pig Section has been omitted this year. The difficulty in previous years has been to Becure competition in pure bred pigs. It almost looks as though pig breeders had divided the shows between them e>o that eacb could point to a list of I prizes eeoured without competition I from other breeders.
A new feature of this year's pro gramme is the junior seotion 'which is designed to encourage competition amongst school children and entties of which are limited to a 20 mile radius from Little River Post Oflic6. Besides the usual classes for writiog and composition there ara a number of senior classes and a class for school exhibitions of Red Cross work which we hope will obtain a goodly number of entries. We notice that the Girls Cookery Classes have been removed from the Domestic section to the Junior section, the effect of this will practically be to confine the entries to the Peninsula. The Secretary wishes to pint at one or two slight errors that have crept into the programme.
Class 94—Pen of 5 calves 13 put under the heading of Holstein, but it i<? not intended that the calves should be confined to that breed.
Mr. J. C. Hay's prize of £2 2s should be for most points in Domestic and not Dairy Produoe.
Class 96 — The word yearling 3 should be inserted, otherwise the class would be similar to Glass 98.

Much interesting correspondence was dealt with, inoluding several com
