Price of cock foot seven Pence per Pound considered too Low representations will be made to merchants at a meeting of the Akaroa cock foot seed growers association at Duvauchelle on Friday the chairman of the. Committee or p. G. Armstrong reported that the Best offer for the new seasons seed was seven Pence per Pound. The prospects for tha crop were Good for Quality weight and germination. He contended that cock foot could not be economically grown on Banks Peninsula for less than eight Pence to 10 Pence per Pound. The fact that Ashburton and Plains seed which this year was of better Quality and weight than usual was being offered to merchants at from sixpence to seven Pence was prejudicing the position for Banks Peninsula seed which would reach the Market later. He placed before the in voting figures showing Farmers returns Basing his figures on the 1938 crop which was a heavier one than usual. These figures refer Only to seed production and do not include land tax depreciation of fences and general farm maintenance nor the income from the grazing. The figures showed he said that a poor yield would have meant a very poor return and owing to harvesting costs it was very necessary that prices should be maintained on a High level to give growers same crops. Guarantee for their costs of production production for 1938 was High and a unit yield would have meant a loss. Or aim is to stabilise prices to maintain the Industry and give our growers some guarantee for their crops. The figures for 1938 Are As follows where Farmers let their seed to contractors on a a halves a a s d a s d Gross return per acre a a rental on land valued at �25 per acre a a 15 local rates.

Banks Peninsula could depend on it that tho government if App Voa Ched would assist As far As possible and the Canterbury Council of which he was chairman would also assist in every Way possible. The suggestions should be condensed and submitted to the government. In answer to a question by or r. Bruce or Macfarlane said that the provincial Council would accept responsibility for some of the main functions. Or George Manning added that if the Canterbury Council were to accept some of the responsibility for some of the functions they would naturally want a say in what form the celebrations would take. Or t. H. Mccombs .

It would be necessary later to appoint a permanent organiser to make detailed arrangements. Messes t. Charters and p. R. Climie offered to assist the preparations As far As possible. The Akaroa county Council recently asked the Canterbury Progress league to go into the matter of consolidating the Banks Peninsula Telephone services with the Post and Telegraph department so As to give longer hours and continuous services As far As possible.

Climie Secretary of the league reports that or Brent District Engineer Christchurch stares to would prefer to have the government Telephone lines on Banks Peninsula brought to a higher Standard of efficiency before he discussed the question with the subscriber. A number of linesmen were still working to improve the lines and this would continue for another two months. The service would be considerably improved by this1 work and remove cause for complaint. The subscribers could decide what further improvements were required by them at inter Date. Mock Maori Battle suggestion for the Centennial suggested they should be continuous the difficulties regarding the dates for the National Centennial celebrations at Akaroa next year were emphasised at a conference of local bodies on Banks Peninsula and Christchurch representatives held at Duvauchelle on saturday. It was pointed out by the mayor of Christchurch or r. M. Macfarlane that the Date of the Centenary of hoisting the Flag at Akaroa would clash with the National week in Christchurch and that if necessary the trotting authorities should be asked to postpone their fixtures. The subject was introduced by the chairman of the / Wai Rewa county Council or f. Coop who stated that the celebrations should not be divided but included in a set period v he was disappointed that the proposals so far were not comprehensive. Akaroa was the Pivot on which All the South Island celebrations would turn. Unless1 there was a United Effort they would be robbed of their prerogative. They should not he divided into periods the Spring and autumn hut should be Macfarlane said that the Canterbury programmes should be coordinated. If the celebrations were not compact they would suffer in support and All should make sure that they were not infringing on other. Fixtures. It would be a pity if the celebrations were not a Success because of a clash in dates. Archdeacon a. J. Petrie suggested that the proposed functions could be sorted out into National and local fixtures. Or George Manning said that he was afraid that divided dates would test the loyalty of the Public in keeping up their enthusiasm. The programme should be concentrated.

Not a credit to Wakeha a the land dealings in this country Are not altogether to the credit of the Wakeha a said or Montgomery. A they Are the real pioneers of this country. I think also that there should be some memorial to the the chairman of the Wai Rewa c. Unto Council or Frank Coop suggested that a Model Maori pah could he built in the Vicinity of Akaroa during the celebrations to be inhabit ted by the natives at that time. He had noticed that special War canoes were being built for the Wai Tangi celebrations so there was no reason Why a special pah should not be built near Akaroa. The mayor of Christchurch or r. M. Macfarlane said that at a new zealand Centennial Council meeting sir Pirana Ngata . Had inquired about the South Island National Celebie actions at Akaroa. He had also stated that Many North Island maoris had asked about the Akaroa celebrations and were anxious to visit the a function and assist where possible. Maoris will assist in celebrations the representative of the Maori race on the committee or t. Robinson said that the celebrations had been discussed at Utah ii last year and it had been proposed that special sports and dancing competitions should be arranged before the actual functions and the maoris would then be free to assist in the celebrations. It was suggested that a committee should be formed at the annual Maori competitions at South Canterbury later in the year. Suggestions were made by Archdeacon that the maoris should re enact the was Between the Rau Paraham a tribe and the South Island maoris at Onawa Peninsula and that the Maori Church at the Kaik dedicated by Bishop Selwyn in 1840, should be re opened. / the suggestions were left to the executive to recommend for submission to the provincial Council at a later Date.
