AFRICAN WAGES SURVEY BY WELFARE FEDERATION
A MEETING of the Umtali Welfare Society was held at Moffat Hall on Wednesday at which the organising secretary, Mr Percy Ibboston, was present. Mr G. Chace presided.
Among the matters dealt with by the committee was a suggestion from Mr G. Hoare that a large culvert open bridge be constructed at the Location of sufficient width to deal with the considerate amount of vehicular traffic there and which would save the cost of continually repairing the present structure to prevent it being washed away. It was decided that the secretary should write to the Town Clerk suggesting such bridge to be constructed.
