Dunedin from Andersons Bay. — Otago Witness, 11.3.1924
In the St Kilda Coronation Hall on Thursday night a concert programme, in aid of a fund for building a suitable hall for the Ocean Beach Scouts and Wolf Cub pack, was presented.
The performers displayed considerable talent, and each item was warmly applauded. Wolf Cub Duncan Todd contributed a humorous character recitation, which served to demonstrate his undoubted elocutionary talents, and no less applauded was a recitation by Peggy Black. The fancy dancing was also popular, and the exponents showed a good deal of skill and grace, which spoke well of the tuition they had received. The songs, too, were of a high standard, and another interesting feature was an exhibition by the Ocean Beach Wolf Cubs of the procedure at a pack meeting.
. . . while Guides seek perfection
There was a fair attendance of members at the Otago Women’s Club yesterday afternoon in honour of Mrs W.R. Wilson, of Auckland who delivered an interesting address on the Girl Guide Movement, which was prompted by Sir Robert Baden-Powell’s Boy Scouts. The name given these girls in the first instance was Girl Scouts, but a change of name was after some time made to the present one. The movement had its origin in Great Britain, where it flourished, and it had since almost became worldwide. Mrs Wilson defined the aims of the movement, which, briefly speaking, was to develop a perfect homemaker and make good women. The Boy Scout was noted for his honour, and so was the Girl Guide. In places where the movement had taken 
a hold people had learned to trust the Girl Guides, which indicated that its aims were being achieved. The training of the Girl Guide was interesting, and a great deal of it was done by means of games. As a girl became proficient in any branch of housework she passed an examination in it, and was awarded a badge.
Dunedin defined
One heavy-witted Aucklander, and envious to boot, has perpetrated a set of rules for the Dunedin Club newly founded in Auckland city, which set of rules Mr E.C. Cutten — a name smacking strongly of Dunedin — condescended to read for laughter’s sake at a social gathering of the Club to celebrate the seventieth anniversary of Otago.Membership shall be open to all those who ever lived in Dunedin but managed to get away.
