AVAR MEMORIALS

Before it is too late I venture to suggest that legislation be brought down to ensure that war memorials are controlled. At the end of the last war hundreds of thousands of pounds were subscribed for useless structures and now many of them are neglected and forgotten. Money was collected for useful memorials also, but really only in excuse for neglected social duty. I think it is infamous to collect money to the memory of our dead just as a benefit to the living, unless it be to provide for the mothers, widows and orphans they left behind. As a sad commentary on this I note that the Veterans' Home has the same capacity to-day as it had over 30 years ago. So before building parish pumps let us have more memorial homes for the aged and orphans of this war. DINKIE.
