The dinner and dancing were both well arranged, the speeches were limited to five minutes each, and visible warning was given by “traffic signals” mounted where everyone could see them. A first class cabaret show, with Elsie and Doris Waters, John Tilley, and the inimitable Western Brothers was presented during the course of the evening.

Mr. Kimber replied, and welcomed his distinguished guests, amongst whom were numbered Earl Howe, Signor Nuvolari, Count Lurani, and his friendly rivals, Mr. Victor Riley, Capt. A. R. C. Waite, and the great Freddy Dixon. Captain Eyston was unable to be there as he had been taking part in the record-breaking

run of the Magic Midget at Montlhery.

Mr. Hess, Secretary of the Club, gave some particulars of the increase of membership, from 150 to 600 in a year, so that Northern and Midland centres had been started. There were actually 400 guests at the dinner. Mr. S. C. H.
