The railway department have recognised the act by presenting Mr Walker with a first-class ticket, entitling him to travel over the N.Zi. railways. A revival of interest in matters aquatic has boon created, principally through the efforts of Mr J. Barker. It is possible that the Awarua Boating Club may be represented at the next regatta.
