FOR RESIDENTIAL. NURSERY The excellent sum of about £350 was raised by a Pa'ddy's Market held in the concert chamber of the Town Hall recently in aid of the Auckland Residential Nursery. It was sponsored by the Public Health Group of the New Zealand Registered Nurses' Association (Auckland).

The Mayoress, Mrs. Allum, who opened the market, was introduced by the president of the group, Miss G. M. Underwood, while the president of the Registered Nurses' Association, Miss A. H. Joyce, was also on the platform. Mrs. Allum reminded those present that it was the nurses who had originally conceived the idea of the present residential nursery, realising the urgent need for some institution to take charge of small children whose mothers were sick.

Among those who contributed to the success of the fair by their hard work were the secretary and treasurer of the group, Mrs; A. T. Gick and tb.e charge nurse of the Plunket Society, Miss H. Chapman. The Blind Institute Band:, under Captain G. W. Bowes, supplied music and items were enjoyed.
