Brief Notices

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.

Renewal Stickers: If your subscription is expiring, you will find an expiry sticker on the wrapper of your issue. Please examine the wrapper carefully and if the sticker appears on it, send us a renewal as soon as possible on the form enclosed with the issue.

Contributions in Maori: Ko tetahi o nga whakaaro nui o Te Ao Hou he pupuri kia mau te reo Maori. Otira ko te nuinga o nga korero kei te tukua mai kei te reo Pakeha anake. Mehemea hoki ka nui mai nga korero i tuhia ki te reo Maori ka whakanuia ake te wahanga o ta tatou pukapuka mo nga korero Maori.

A Disclaimer. The Department of Maori Affairs does not hold itself responsible for the opinions expressed by contributors to Te Ao Hou. We do our best to check the facts, but the responsibility for statements in signed articles remains the author's alone.
