The Brookside United Bible Class held a social as a break-up for the year's work, in the school. An invitation was extended to other district classes and it was well answered, about 70 people attending.

The programme consisted of items interspersed with games and competitions, an item being given by each visiting class. The Dunsandel class presented a play which was excellently done, those taking part being Mrs Brown, Miss D. Johnson, Miss D. Caldwell, Miss M. Skinner and Miss K. Johnstone. Leeston Methodist boys presented an act which caused much amusement, while the Presbyterian class provided a mouth-organ item. Other items included a pianoforte solo played by Miss Mildred Sheat, while Bill Heslop gave a mouth-organ solo. Also presented was a play by the Brookside class, those who took part being Misses J. Gardner, P. Bailey, T. Crossen, D. Brooks and Mr Alan Croy.

After supper was served by the Brookside class, the singing of "Auld Lang Syne" and a short prayer by the Rev. D. N. Pryor brought a very successful evening to a close.


Brookside Institute held a most enjoyable and interesting meeting last Friday, it being , characterised as a Scotch afternoon. The roll call was a notable Scottish personage. The Rev. T. W. Armour, well-known for his addresses in braid Scotch, was present, giving a short talk on Burns and Scotch customs, also recounting examples of Scotch humour. Quite unique was the dispensing of afternoon tea, typically Scotch with

its girdle cakes, oatcake, "carvie" biscuits, Scotch bun, etc.

Each member also received a sprig of heather grown on Bowhill, Selkirk, Scotland, and it was tied with tartan ribbon. Mrs Dallison, a visitor from Christchuch, sang some delightful Scotch songs.

The hostesses who dispensed afternoon tea were Mrs Taylor, Mrs Hastings and Miss A. Hall.

The competitions were judged by Mrs Armour and Mrs Dallison and resulted:—Scotch shortbread, Miss D. Brooks 1, Mrs A. Croy 2, Mrs Cunningham 3; three ranunculi, Mrs Cunningham 1, Mrs Saunders 2; two iris, Mrs Graham 1, Mrs J. Brooks 2.

Next month's competition will be a pine needle article.
