Our Cover: To illustrate our article on Maori in corporations, we visited Morikau Station, on the Wanganui River, which has returned to the owners' control just recently. When Te Ao Hou visited this station, everybody warned us not to forget the lake with the paradise ducks—it would make a grand picture. We have not forgotten it. (Charles Hale Photograph.)
“Gone, No Address”: We receive many copies of Te Ao Hou with these words stamped on them. These copies belong to subscribers but they never reach their destination, because the subscribers have moved on without telling us their new address. Please remember, when you go to live elsewhere, to send a postcard to Te Ao Hou, P.O. Box 2390, Wellington.
Renewal of Subscriptions: Almost daily Te Ao Hou meets innocent looking ex-subscribers who vaguely complain they have not seen Te Ao Hou for some time and why did we not tell them their subscription had expired. It is our practice to enclose a renewal form in the copy of every subscriber whose renewal is due. Please have a look whether your copy includes such a form. If it does fill it in and send us your renewal today.
Stories Wanted: Te Ao Hou still requires more writers and artists. We want fact and fiction; we want Maori or English writing; we want drawings and photographs. Here is an opportunity for an absorbing pastime, and the chance to earn a little extra as well. Let us know what is happening where you live. Incidentally, we also welcome items of family news.
Our New Photographer: Since Mr Ashton's departure for America, Mr Charles Hale has taken over as Te Ao Hou's staff photographer. Mr Hale continues to work for the Dominion Museum and we are grateful to Dr Falla, the director of the museum, for permission to use his services. Mr Hale is also advising Te Ao Hou on layout and typography.
