A plantation near Norwood was flattened, while from Dunsandel the snow has not yet disappeared, many paddocks being covered. In those free from snow, grain stacks are still white-capped. MORE WORKERS GO SOUTH Another district has supplied men to work in Canterbury to assist in the repair of the extensive damage to telephone and telegraph lines caused by the recent snow storm.
On Saturday twelve Whangarei linesmen left Auckland by air for Christchurch. They will spend not less than ; three months in Canterbury.
