ARRANGEMENTS FOR MONDAY
The organisers of the Unrra drive held in Auckland on Saturday last, state that on account of the extremely generous response to the appeal for clothing for the distressed people of Europe, it was not possible to collect all the clothing in one day. A supplementary collection is, therefore, being arranged for Monday next. August 6. The' co-operation of the headmasters and senior pupils of the primary schools is being sought. The proposed arrangements are that in the localities where the supplementary collection will be made, the children will call at the homes that were missed on Saturday, a list of which will be supplied to the headmasters. Citizens are asked to co-operate by putting their parcels at their front gates on Monday. The parcels, after being collected, will be taken by Army lorries to the depot in Khyber Pass. A hundred women are er.Taged at the depot every day on the strenuous task of sorting and packing the clothing for shipment overseas.
