Mayor's Homes Scheme Adopted – a meeting of citizens was held at the Guildhall this afternoon to consider in what form the City should commemorate the War and the contribution of those who took part in it. The Mayor and Committee in charge of Soldiers and Sailors Homes Fund assented to that Fund being altered in name and being extended as the chief part of the City War Memorial. A resolution was also adopted stating that part of the memorial should consist of improvements in the Lower Hall of the Guildhall in which the names of all who had fought should be placed.
