[Letter from A. M. Burns]
This year I have seen in Wellington "capping books" produced by Otago, Canterbury, Lincoln, Victoria and Massey. I may have missed two or three others produced further north.
All of these "books" have had their own character and some merit.
But what a tremendous waste of effort and money for a small community like New Zealand to produce so many similar publications at the one time.
Why not save both the above scarce resources by producing one for the whole of New Zealand. Under the editorship of, say, the NZUSA. Contributions could be accepted from all centres and collated into one bumper issue for distribution over the whole of the country. What do you think?
