SOLDIERS’ LAND BALLOT - Mangateparu Settlement
A ballot, confined to discharged soldiers, for 43 sections totalling 3390 acres on the Mangateparu Settlement near Morrinsville, has been conducted by the Auckland Land Board. Fifteen of the sections were reserved for married men and married and single men competed on equal terms for the remaining 28 sections. There were about 180 applicants. The main road, between Morrinsville and Tahuna, runs through the centre of the property, which was formerly owned by Mr Alexander Bell. Provision has been made for a small township in the centre of the block and certain other sections are being retained, with a view to being offered to soldiers later. The successful applicants are:
