THE CHAUFFEURS’ CLUB.

The National Society of Chauffeurs, of which Mr. E. M. C. Instone, J.P., is the president, in conjunction

with the vice-presidents, the Hon. Sir Arthur Stanley, G.B.E., C.V.O., C.B., M.P., Sir Julian Orde, Lord Montagu of Beaulieu, Sir William Letts, K.B.E., Mr. Stanley Spooner and Mr. A. E. Holmes, is appealing for £5,000 for the purpose of setting up a Club-house for the Society.

The proposal is that the Club-house shall comprise, besides bedrooms, dining, billiard and reading rooms, a lecture-hall, a gymnasium and an extensive and up-to-date garage.

It is foreseen that a dub such as this would prove a boon to all owners of chauffeur-driven cars visiting the Metropolis, for the chauffeur would know immediately that he had somewhere satisfactory to put up and to garage the car.

In addition to the time saved by this pre-arrangement, he would at all times be at the telephonic beck and call of his employer should he be required.

The appeal goes on to say that it is proposed to affiliate with Chauffeurs’ Clubs in foreign countries, and thus to form an international brotherhood, from which both the owner and the chauffeur would derive benefit— the former insomuch as when travelling in a country where there was an affiliated society, the chauffeur could immediately obtain any information he required, as well as find accommodation for himself and the car.

The appeal is being addressed particularly to private owners, trade societies and other concerns engaged in the motor trade.

The Society has also issued an informative and compact handbook which embodies a list of garages, French and English road signs, and points in driving.
