PATRIOTIC WORK

"HOLD GROUPS TOGETHER" The future position of the women's activities sub-committee of the Auckland Metropolitan Patriotic Committee was commented on by the Mayoress, Mrs. Allum, when presiding over a meeting of the subcommittee yesterday. No instructions had been received from Welihgton, she said, but she would be grateful if the women would hold their groups together to aid the raising of funds for the endowment of a chair of obstetrics for the proposed women's hospital. Mrs. Lan Horton, on behalf of the Air Force Relations, said their instructions were to knit up all the wool still on hand, as the garments not required by the Air Force would be given to Unrra.

Regarding the closing down of the patriotic shop, the hope was expressed that definite instructions would be available at the next meeting. In the meantime the shop would remain open. Over £9560 had been raised by the shop to date.

A report on the information bureau was given by Miss V. Walsh, who said the bureau received about 50 inquiries daily, but the' necessity for the service was past and the bureau would shortly be closed.
