Recalls "the great to-do" when they built the new City Council buildings, the expense - that it would never be utilised - the rates would have to be doubled. Describes Alf Bridges, a councillor, "as blind as a bat". Recalls a story about a policeman holding Bridges up (been drinking) making him give details on a nearby building, which Bridges did. After was told that Bridges did the plastering on the building three weeks ago and knew what was written!
Recollected Mabel Howard - listened to her on the radio, starting "a storm" in Parliament. Also Hilda Ross, and her patriotic involvement.
