WALCHA, Tuesday.

An appeal by the Patriotic and War Fund for subscriptions to the new war loan has resulted in £9,940 being subscribed by the district. This amount is expected to be increased considerably in the next few days.

Walcha’s quota is £10,500. The largest single subscription received was £1,200, followed by two of £1,000 each. War savings certificate purchases for the past two days amount to £238.
