XO THE EDITOR Sir,—Please allow me, through your columns, to draw the attention of the women $£ Dnnedin to a want which will be felt acutely during the coming winter in Great Britain. Refugees ara flocking in from the Continent. Tha feeding and clothing will be a problem. We women of New Zealand could form ourselves into a. "left-off clothing corps," and help greatly to lessen the suffering of ill-fed, poorly clothed humanity. A Central Women's Committee might be formed, also a committee of gentlemen to advise and finance the scheme, and sub-committees of women in the suburbs to collect, renovate, and revise left-off clean, warm garments, which would result in hundreds of warm, comfortable garments being available for distressed Belgians and British poor in the bitter months of winter. The Kaikorai women have taken the matte? in hand, but the response to our appeal for old clothes has been so generous that unless we obtain more workers we cannot do all the good we wish to. Personally, I feel our effort is too great to bo borne by one or two suburbs, and if only the ladies who pledged themselves, and have redeemed that pledge so nobly in their work of equipment of the forces, can see their.way to band together in this work, I feel sure wr may do a good work.—l am, etc., E. Pinfold. September 12.
