To the Editor

In view of the very obvious need for planning future war memorials, I would suggest community centres. A community centre, embodying a service for every section of any small community, such as Plunket rooms, play centre, juvenile and young people's clubs, and adult physical and recreational service, would be a permanent and valuable memorial. To those of us of this generation outside the R.S.A. it seems that there is a great need for returned soldiers to meet their fellow citizens so that they may be aided on their return to civil life ,and realise their responsibility to share community problems and opportunities. Though a community centre is more than a building the premises are essential, and the collecting of funds for such a purpose as a war memorial should appeal to every person and all communities. One of the greatest obstacles to complete rehabilitation seems to be a tendency to isolate the soldier, to preserve the adolescent atmosphere of the "old Army tie" and to attempt to recreate a period that has passed in a world that demands continual development. CITIZEN.
