The Akaroa Mail. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 18, 1915. PENINSULA QUEEN CONTEST.
Thk determination come to by the Peninsula War Funds Appeal Commit tea on Tuesday last to enter the successful queen in our local contest for competitition in the Christcbnvcb Carnival in March next will meet with general approval. Though it was never decided finally the impression appears to have gained ground that Misa Birdling or Miss Bruce would enter the larger contest fater. The Peninsula people entered into the present contest at the suggestion of Mr J F Bnchsnan, whose idea was that this was the best way to raice the amount allocated to as as our proportion of tbe £100,000 required. Everyone is working to raise as much money as possible for our wounded soldiers. If after providing its qunta the district can produce more through joiniDg in the Christ church Carnival, it seems only right to enter into tbe second contest, It also givea our two focal queens an added interest when it is realised that the successful candidate will represent the present distriot and the Halswell, Springs, Elleamera Counties and Borough of Lyttelton. Tbe representatives of the new districts stated on Tuesday that they considered the successful queen in tbe present con teat was the proper candidate for the Christebuach Carnival.
