HARROW . A meeting of all interested in the welfare of Harrow Bush Nursing Cen tre was held at Harrow last week. Mr. Eugene Fitzgerald, who has held the position of hon. secretary for the last five years, tendered his resignation. Mr. Fitzgerald, through illness, was unable to be present at the meeting, but sent an explanation stating that owing to pressure of private business he was un able to give the affairs of the centre the time that was necessary, and hoped that the scheme would continue to pros per. Mr. G. T. Moyle was appointed his successor, and a unanimous 'vote of thanks was recorded to Mr. Fitzgerald for the 'very valuable service he had rendered, and regrets was expressed at his' resignation. This was supported by Sister Greer, superintendent of the council, who stated that Mr. Fitzgerald was a very satisfactory secretary to deal with. She felt sure that the mem bers of the local committee had no idea of the volume of work done by Mr. Fitzgerald during the past five years. The books of the centre showed a large
amount outstanding in arrears, and it was decided to appoint the following collectors for each district, and any amounts of arrears not paid within a month to be handed to a solicitor for collection: -Harrow district, Mesdames Williams and Perry; Wombelano dist rict, Mrs. Potter and Mr. Thos. Ough; Salt Lakes district, Messrs Jas. McIn tyre and E. P. Kirby; Pigeon Ponds district, Messrs Cameron and Brody; Chetwynd and Connewirrico district, Mr. G. Moyle. Members' subscriptions were increased to 25/ for 1921. Since last Monday last a man named James Jack, who had been for a few weeks employed by a Mr. Henry on the Gringegalonga settlement, has been missing, and all efforts to trace him have failed. Jack is described as a swagman, aged about 67 years, reddish complexion and hair, with like mous tache, showing distinctly grey, height about 5 feet 10 inches. When he was last seen on 19th April he was wearing grey tweed trousers, well patched, blue galatea shirt, dark twill coat and light black hoots. He left a swag behind him, also his pay. The country comprises some very dense scrub toward the ran ges, and if a person should be inclined to attempt any "short cut" through it he would be courting disaster, pro vided he were not a woodsman. Con stable G. T. Moyle, of Harrow, has spent the greater portion of a week in a search but without result.
