Physical Welfare and Recreation Scheme
Physical Welfare and Recreation Scheme.
New Zealand's move to improve the physical well-being of its inhabitants has advanced another step by the appointment of a Council to carry out the policy of the Physical Welfare and Recreation Scheme. In selecting the key officials, Hon. W. E. Parry has made a wise choice and all sections of the community are represented. Although sport—competitive exercise—is likely to play a big part in the scheme it is noted that many of the members of the council are prominent in social activity as distinct from competitive sport, and it will be by the alliance of sport and social work that the best results may accrue.
