WAR WIDOWS' NEED
Plans for a campaign to increase the allowance for children of servicemen who have been killed in this war were made at a meeting of the War Widows' Association. The president, Mrs. J. Marshall, said that the payment of 10/6 now received for each child was entirely _ inadequate and that 17/6 a child, an amount paid for wards of the State, should be sought. A levelling of war gratuities was needed, it was considered. for women whose husbands were killed early in the war or, after training many months in New Zealand, were killed soon after going overseas. It was suggested that a woman should be on the pensions' committee to deal with the welfare of women and children.
