Having conceived the" idea arid prepared the plans, the new stand at Lancaster Pa'rkj one of. the cheapest jobs of its kind m the country, will be an: "everlasting monument to a man who served his province well as a live member of its commercial and sporting- community. '.;'•■ South Island hockey; and Canterbury Rugby representative honors are-inc-luded m Charlie's sporting activities, and he also ran a good <Jhree * miles, while m later years he has held important offices cm the Rugby Union and athletic centre m Christchurch.
