Maori Section. As Mr W. T. Ngata is now Secretary to the Minister of Maori Affairs, he has relinquished the post of Associate Editor for the Maori text of Te Ao Hou. His place has been taken by Mr N. P. K. Puriri, Assistant Controller of Maori Welfare. It will be his aim to strengthen the magazine's Maori language section and—incidentally—there will also be a change of dialect, as Nau Puriri comes from Tokerau.
Contributions will be published in any of the standard forms of spelling now being used. Mr Puriri favours the use of the macron to show long vowels, but if contributors consistently use the double vowel instead, their spelling will be retained.
Back Issues. It is still possible to buy some back issues of Te Ao Hou by writing to the Editor, Te Ao Hou, P.O. Box 2390, Wellington. We have in stock: a few copies of issues 14, 15, 16 and 17, at 5/- per copy, and copies of issues 18 and following, at 2/6 each. Issues 1–13 are now all sold out.
