    • BUSH FIRE BRIGADES

      Farewell Mr. Ray Mutch

      Representatives of Cootamundra and district bush fire brigades and other bodies gathered at the Hotel Central on Friday evening to bid farewell to Mr. Ray Mutch. who is leaving Cootamundra for Newcastle.

      Many sincere and glowing tributes were paid to Mr. Mutch for his splendid work as secretary of the Cootamundra Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade, his fine qualities as a citizen, and as a business man and a judge of stock.

      Mr. E. J. O'Connor, president of the Cootamundra Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade, chaired the gathering, and read out a long list of apologies.

      Mr. O'Connor said it was with very great regret that they were assembled to say farewell to their late secretary. Ray had been the perfect secretary. As a business man and auctioneer he had excelled. There was no one better in Cootamundra. His valuations of stock had been remarkably accurate.

      Mr. O'Connor added that he was sorry to lose a good and sincere friend, and knew that Ray would make a success of anything he undertook.

      The president was supported in his remarks by Messrs. A. Bragg, F. Ward; B. O'Connor, J. Kirley, T. Bannon; W. Loiterton; Const. H.Clifton, K. Corby, W. J. Elliott, Ray Ryals, S. Worthington, J. Faunt, R. Punnett, M. McClintock, D. McClintock, J.Moore, W. C. Elliott. L. Sutton, L. Forsyth, E.Elrlngton. W. Corby, N. Armour, H. G. O. Burrows, B. Williams, and M. Scott.

      Cr. A. Donaldson (shire president) made a presentation to the guest of a substantial wallet of notes; He said it was a great honor to do so. The town and district had sustained a great loss. They would miss Ray very much, and hoped to see him back. He felt that the remarks passed that night had been very sincere.

      Mr. Mutch, in reply, said that it was not only a proud moment for him, but a very emotional one. No one ap preciated friendships more than he did. He had tried to make his life a useful one, and it was more than gratifying to see such a gathering of friends. Every thinking Australian realised that Australia's national income depended on what it could produce. He believed it to be his duty to be constructive and helpful to the pri mary industry in any way possible. One way was to assist in fighting the bush fire menace. He had appreciated the cordiality and good friendship extended to him by members of the dif ferent brigades. Mr. J. Leahy, as president, had been a great worker, and Mr. O'Connor would be equally so. In many instances the speakers had overstated his ability. He and his wife would like to see Cootamundra friends at Newcastle. He thanked them all very sincerely.

      Mr. Mutch then proceeded to propose 'The Cootamundra- Bush Fire Brigade's New Secretary (Mr. R. Loiterton)," and said he thought that Ron could do a better job.

      In responding, Mr. Loiterton said that Ray had carried out the job to such a degree of perfection that it was going to be hard to follow him. However, he would do his best. With Ray's departure he was losing a great friend. His ability to weigh small matters just as accurately as big ones, together with his outstanding honesty, had made him a prominent figure in tho town and district.

      Mr. J. Moore proposed 'The Ladies," and said that the calibre, of the womenfolk of a town and district made it, and in this respect they were very fortunate. Mrs. Smart, in responding, said that anything done had been with the greatest of pleasure.

      Mr. and Mrs. Smart were also thanked for the manner in which they had catered for the function.

      Mr. J. Kirley proposed "The Press," and Mr. H. Plnkstone responded.

      The final toast of the evening was that of 'The Cootamundra Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade.'"This was pro posed by Cr. A. Donaldson, and Mr. E. J. O'Connor responded.
