This week end will be a very gay one for all Hedland folk. It is our annual race week which everyone looks forward to every year. Pictures will be shown on Thursday and Saturday. A dance on Friday night, conducted by the Youth Club. On Sunday, Elder, Smith & Co., are giving a Cocktail Party and on Monday night the culminating event will be the Race Club Ball. A few visitors are coming down from Broome and Derby, and also a number from Roebourne, to help join in and enjoy the race week festivities.
