In our next Issue:

A Maori Leaders Conference, sponsored by the Auckland Regional Council of Adult Education, took place in Auckland, in the first week of September. To Ao Hou will print a detailed record of the proceedings, with some of the papers delivered by experts at the various sessions.

Several very interesting stories and essays were scheduled for this ‘Maori Writers Issue’ but could not be printed for lack of space. These will appear next December. They are by Tuini Ngawai, Pei Jones, Rora Paki, Peter Taua, Hirone Wikiriwhi.

The following series of articles and stories will be continued: Puhiwahine, by Pei Jones; Tolaga Bay, by Dr D. Sinclair; Tu and the Taniwha, by Kate Shaw; Uenuku or Kahukura, by Tuta Nihoniho; Maori Land Titles, by Toitu Te Whenua.

It is hoped to present an article on the South African Negro by Alan Paton.

A report on the conference of the Maori Women's Welfare League in Napier will be published along with the winning entry, by Ngati Maniapoto, in the Te Puea Trophy Competition.
