 The Christmas party in the Club room on the 18th December was quite a reunion. In spite of this, it was a very enjoyable evening and the social committee are certainly entitled to relax on their bay leaves. The Christmas party in the Club room on the 18th December was quite a reunion.

-Though faithfully interpreted sartorially by a few daring people, the flAusterity"​ motif was not applied to the supper, There was an elegant sufficiency,​ and a swarm of locusts couldntt have demolished anything in less time or left more desolation.

-One half page allowance this month, will not permit all the details we would like to pass on but we did notice, Len Scotland looking like the answer to a Koala'​s prayer. "Only the choicest tips" were used for his gum leaf creation. Joan Atthill looking very well and beautifully tanned, arrived

-The Limerick competition proved what we have always maintained, that many

-On November 18th a meeting was called by the National Fitness Ceuncil to form a Youth Association. I have it on good authority that, of the hundred or more delegates present at the meeting, not more than three appeared to be under 25. More than half looked to be 40 or over, and some over 60.

-constitution was presented by the National Fitness Council, in which the Council 
-reserved for itself the right to nominate the President, DeputyPresident 
-and Secretary. 
-Youth has practically no say in public affairs. But it suffers more than 
-any other section of the community from the mismanagement of the elders. In 
-4epressions most of the unemployed are young men and women., In wars it is youth who leave the comfort of their homes to fight and die for the community. 
-And now, while most of them are away in camps, the elders are making a nice 
-new association for them in which they shall again do what the elders think is good for them. They must be kept fit. Fit for *hat? They must be trained 
-for leadership. Why not for democracy? Lcannot help recalling that in Germany 
-the leadership 1-1,inciple '​(FuhrerPlrinzip) has been substituted for democracy. 
-Youth, which does most of the "dirty work" should certainly unite to protect its interests. It should be given every facility to live a full life and make its opinions heard and felt. Surely, if we are in earnest about democracy., youth should run its own association in its own way.

 +We have passed through difficult times and greater difficulties and troubles lie ahead, but something we bring home from the bush will stand us bushwalkers in good stead when trials beset us. A serenity and understanding which comes of quiet yarns round camp fire glow and sleep under the stars will fortify us when all else fails.
