A Hearty Welcome for Lovelock
A Hearty Welcome for Lovelock.
New Zealand will soon be entertaining Jack Lovelock, her first Olympic track and field victor. Lovelock has come a long way to say “Hello” to his folk—has, perhaps, competed in his last race—and is assured of a hearty welcome. There is a chance that he will return in the future to take up an important Government appointment having to do with the welfare of the physical condition of young New Zealanders. New Zealand has on many occasions been accused of failing to offer remunerative positions to her Rhodes Scholars on the completion of their studies, with the result that they have been compelled to accept positions abroad. In Lovelock's case it seems that something may be done to atone for past errors.
