OWING to an error in the wording of the advertisement convening the meeting, nothing could be done at the meeting to elect a local executive committee under the Commonwealth Repatriation act, which was held in Frankston on Wednesday.

It was ultimately decided that another meeting be called, and this will be held on Friday, 20th inst.

A deplorable lack of interest is being shown by the majority of residents in the most important repatriation work, and it is to be hoped that they will shake off their apathy, and roll up in force on Friday evening.
