A NOVEL TOUR
WOOL COUNCIL'S DISPLAY
The New Zealand Wool Council is assisting in the collection of funds for patriotic purposes in a way novel,to New Zealand, and its contribution to the campaign should; result in a substantial addition to the moneys collected. Several invitations were extended to the Wool Council during the Exhibition that its unusual display, and particularly the mannequin parades, should be presented at other centres after the close of the Exhibition. The council, under the chairmanship of Mr. H. M. Christie, widened this idea by offering to the National Patriotic Fund Bo^d to arrange a tour of both islands, with mannequin parades in about twenty centres, the Wool Council to pay the travelling expenses of the party of four and the whole proceeds to be devoted to patriotic purposes. Arrangements for the different centres are in the hands of the local patriotic committees. , The Wool Council has received the ready co-operation of district patriotic committees, of the woollen manufacturing industry, and of a number of business houses - and also of the Railway and Tourist Departments in arranging the tour, which, it is believeH, is the first of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere. Mrs. Ina Allan is the commentator and Mrs. Paddy Jacomb and Misses Jean Hinton and Joy Allan are the mannequins. The tour commences at Invercargill today and will extend over about three months, with visits to all main and provincial centres.
