The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 79



The Central Council records its appreciation of the services rendered by those who acted as chairmen and organisers in connection with the various meetings held under the auspices of the W.E.A. The Central Council also thanks the Y.M.C.A. and the Committee of the District High School, Petone, for the use of their class rooms free of charge save for the cost of lighting and heating; the Authorities of Victoria University College for the free use of the College Library for the students of the Tutorial Classes; the Trades and Labour Council for the use of the Trades Hall building for the meetings of the Central Council; the Drivers' Union for the use of its room for the Industrial law Class; and the Press of the city, which has consistently supported the movement by giving publicity to the work of the Association. The thanks of the Association are also given to the authorities of the Municipal Library for the facilities given to the W.E.A. students in the use of that Library.

On the occasion of the Secretary's enlistment, the following motion was passed by the Central Council, and it was directed that it should be printed in the Annual Report:—

"That the Central Council of the W.E.A. (Wellington Branch) desires to place on record its high appreciation of the voluntary labours of Mr. D. Stanley Smith, to whom, as one of the founders, and first Secretary of the W.E.A., the success of the movement in Wellington is mainly due. That the Council sincerely regrets that, owing to his enlistment, his valuable services will be lost to the W.E.A. in the meantime, but it trusts that good fortune will attend him and that on his return the W.E.A. may again benefit by his labours."
