1943 Book Drive

A National Appeal for good books and magazines for the forces overseas and in New Zealand will be made by the National Patriotic Fund Board. Unless the New Zealand public will give quickly and generously some of the members of the Armed Forces must go without books or be put off with indifferent cast-offs.

Urging an American book drive, Wendell Willkle said: "The simplest and surest method of choice is to select a book with someone In mind whom you know. We all know men who are fighting or in training. A book you and your friends are reading and discussing he and his friends would also like to read and discuss. For those men are not regiments or squadrons or crews. They are human beings. They are our sons. Is it asking too much for us to see that they have books to read?"

We ask with confidence and urgently for your co-operation.

Students are asked to make a good response to this appeal. Books and magazines will be received at the Executive Boom between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m., Monday to Friday, or may be handed to any member of the Executive.
