SALE OF CHRISTMAS SEALS
(Special to "The Evening Post.")
AUCKLAND, This Day.
The Minister of Health (the Hon. A. J. Stallworthy) has issued the following statement:—"To-day wo launch our Christmas seal campaign to stamp out tuberculosis. The seals are now obtainable at all post offices throughout the Dominion. In the fight against incipient tuberculosis, childhood is the period to which our attention must be particularly directed. It is appropriato that the first claim upon the funds raised by the inaugural Christmas seal should be the children's health camp movement. It is hoped that the success achieved will be such as to enable a large extension of these camps throughout the Dominion. The money thus invested will bring a national return in the added vigour and freedom from disease of the children concerned, and in addition will afford them throughout life a series of health ful, happy memories. Every portion of New Zealand will benefit. There will be co-operation with the existing local institutions. I confidently appeal to all generous-hearted, fellow citizens over the holiday period to put a Christmas seal on every letter posted. Whenever we buy a postage stamp let this be our kindly thought: 'A penny for health.' Thus in the true spirit of Christmastide we can show our practical sympathy with thousands of sufferers, our love for hundreds of boys and girls, and help forward a great nation-wide health campaign."
