An interesting point has been raised in connection with the system of awards. It will be remembered that the best 334per cent. in each group will receive First-class awards, and the next 331 per cent. secondclass awards.

The Club proposes in all such cases to give to all competitors the award in the higher class.

The Dunlop Art Society.
What must be the first international exhibition of its kind was held last month at the Burlington Galleries, London,
when the Dunlop Art Society held its first ” show.”
Sir Eric Geddes presided over the opening ceremony, which was performed by Sir Michael Sadler. Both the French and the German Ambassadors were present, for the show included exhibits from employees of the Associated Dunlop Companies in France and Germany.
The exhibits comprised works of poetry, photography, needlework, oilpainting, water-colours, sculpture, pastels, etchings, and black and white work, all executed by Dunlop workers, their wives and children. The exhibition was organised by Mr. S. R. Saunders, Secretary of the Society.
Sir Eric Geddes said : “It is offered as an indication of what can be done to assist in the fruitful use of leisure by stimulating the creative talent which is latent in all classes.” As such, the Dunlop Art Society Exhibition was a remarkably fine achievement.
