EXHIBITION NOTES.

Kindergarten work, as carried on at the Mount Cook Infant School, under the direction of Mrs Francis, will be represented at the Exhibition by a case of samples of the children's productions. The case contains fifty-two articles, consisting of clay models done both with and without moulds, paperplaiting, inlaying, freehand drawing on slates, paper-laying, stick figures, etc., with a list of the names of the little designers. When it is considered that none of the children by whom the work was done are more than eight years old, their proficiency in modelling without tools and in drawing is really remarkable, and speaks volumes for the practicability of the Kindergarten system, no leaa than for the industry of the little one's instructress.—'Post.' THE N.Z.A.R.A. AND THE EXHIBITION REGATTA. The decision of the New Zealand Amateur Rowing Association in connection with allowing representatives of their associated clubs to compete at the Exhibition aquatic meeting is anxiously awaited. The position of affairs is not so unpromising or so unpleasant as would at first appear. The reason why local rowing club ß do not join the New Zealand Association is because the associated cluba of the latter, enjoying much smoother water and less changeable weather than rowing men here, row in outriggers, while here outriggers are considered unsuitable, if not unsafe. Of course, inrigged boats could hardly be asked to compete with outriggers. Here, again, a different phase of the question presents itself. The Managing Committee should, however, be able to settle that question quickly and satisfactorily, because the unfairness of allowing inrigged and outrigged boats to compete in the same race is apparent to all. The New Zealand Association were looked to to take inifciatiory steps regarding the arranging of the regulations of a suitable aquatic carnival, but they evidently left the matter in the hands of the local committee, who have performed their duties to the best of their ability. They recognised that in savors of coercion for the Association to force them to become members of the Associated Union simply to allow the present associated clubs to compete in the various events; and are of opinion that it would be much more fair and more satisfactory for the Association to relax their rule prohibiting associated competing with non-associated clubs. The statements made to the effect that local men are unwilling, if not afraid, to compete with Northern scullers and crews is altogether without foundation, because in the champknship event they recognise that their inrigged boats would not be ablo to cope with the outriggers of their opponents.
