MORE FOR THE FUND

INTEREST OF CHINESE

OTHER NATIONAL LISTS

When, a few weeks ago, certain of the Chinese merchants in the city were asked whether they wished to contribute towards the National Art Gallery and Dominion Museum Fund, they intimated that not only would they be pleased to do so, but would recommend the appeal to others of their countrymen in Wellington. At that the committee in charge of the campaign let the matter rest, and yesterday received cheques and cash contributions totalling £228 10s. The Mayor, Mr. G. A.  Troup, has asked "The Post" to express his and the committee's appreciation and thanks to the members of the various Chinese associations for the ready manner in which they took up the spirit of the appeal.

"The number of Chinese in Wellington is not great, about 600," said Mr. Troup, "so that the proportion of those who came forward is pleasingly high. The Chinese have on many occasions shown a very fine city spirit, and we are particularly pleased with their assistance in connection with the Art Gallery and Museum Fund Appeal. Not only this, but they have offered to co-operate with the Carnival Committee by participation in the League of Nations Pageant and in other spectacular features."

"National lists" are also being compiled by the Danish, Syrian, Greek, and Italian societies or organisations. The contributions from the Chinese residents are as follows: —
