The Duvauchelle ladies have decided to inaugurate a monthly social and dance in aid of funds to buy materials for the Red Cross Work. The socials will be held in the Hall and it is hoped by this means to raise a sufficient sum to carry on the good work. The first social will be held next Friday. :

A series of euchre parties was commenced in the Auckland School last night, when the building was packed says the "Stratford Post" of May Ist. The principal prizes were won by Mrs Christens«n and Mr J. Oldridge, and the consolation prizes by Miss E. Lumsden and A. Christensen. During the evening Mr F. Mackay presented Private Morgan Symes, who is leaving by Monday morning's mail train for camp, with a wristlet watch. The speaker mentioned that their friend was making- two sacrifices: Besides having , enlisted he had sacrificed all his prospects in life after taking up land in the backblocks and carving out a home for himself. The evening was a very enjoyable one, concludes our correspondent. Private Symes is a son of Mr W. C. J. Syme?, of Lβ Boa's B»y and v/as rmidiag at Punfwhekau. Peter Ncibcn, a!ap a late T9Bii<tnt ct Lβ Bone Bay hue enlisted from the Stratford district. I

Miss Dorothea Spinney and Miss Bromley Cocks .of Christchurch arrived in Akaroa on Saturday and stayed at Ilfracombe House for the week end. Miss Bromley Cocks went to Pigeon Bay on Monday to visit her cousin Mrs Maclaverty, while Miss Spinney was prevailed to spend another night in Akaroa and give one of her celebrated Greek plays. Miss Spinney was delighted with thej beauty of Akaroa and its old historical associations.

In connection with the discussion at the Akaroa and Wainui Road Board's meeting at Duvauchelle, it is interesting to note the truth of Mr R. A. Pettigrew's statement that motors travel by night on all the roads as it is. The only time they are prosecuted is when they come into Akaroa. On Saturday evening the writer returned from Duvau-i chelle to Akaroa and no less than! five motor cycles and one motor car; passed our party after dark. Of •hese only two had lights and only one was heard to sound his horn L-ound the corner. All travelled in at a good speed. The time the cars were met was from 5.30 to 6.10 p.m. and it was quite dark. There is certainly something wrong about our present system. If the roads are con-

■ir.ually used by cars at night, the -.hing- should be legalised or the bylaw amended. Anyone using the "■•c.d after dark will this ' r - ./-, J _c if tie bj-Imv > a fi-w instances. It is hard to >-cc who is to blame, but theie is no doubt that the Motor By-law as at present administered is a farce.
