AN AUCKLAND SCHEME
(By Telegraph—Press Association.)
AUCKLAND, April 11.
"Although we are in full sympathy with any movement to give milk to Sfhoolehildren at a reasonable price throughout tho year, it is really a matter for the individual school committees 1o deal with," said tho chtiirnian of tho Auckland Education Board, Mr. T. U. AVolls, at a meeting of the board, when a deputation from the Auckland Metropolitan Milk Council sought the Board's opinion regarding milk for schoolchildren.
The chairman of the distribution committee of the council, Mr. I. J. Goldstino, said that, the purpose of the deputation was formally to introduce the question to the school authorities and to obtain the board's direction for the best manner of going about the scheme.
"The council has an idea of introducing milk into the schools as a beverage on its own," said Mr. Goldstine. "No definite plan has yet been formulated, but it is believed that it will be possible to provide milk from surplus supplies at such a low price that the authorities concerned will adopt the scheme."
"We all realise the value of milk for children," said Mr. "Wells, when the board passed a motion- approving of the council's efforts.
Mr. Goldstine said the matter would next be placed before the school committees and the Auckland Headmasters' Association.- "-
