MEMBERS ENJOY THE "POPS"
On Thursday evening, June 26, there was a special Boston City Club night at the Pop Concert. A program of unusual interest had been arranged for the occasion, including two numbers with the organ,Albert Snow, a member of the Club, organist. The entire floor, which had been reserved exclusively for members of the Club and their friends, was filled, and many who were unable to secure seats on the floor occupied seats in the balcony. The occasion met with such a hearty response and was so successful that it brought forth expressions of hope that it might be made an annual affair.
COMMANDER READ TELLS OF HIS ACHIEVEMENT
On Tuesday, July 8, Lieut.-Commander Albert C. Read, commander of the NC-4, the first airplane to make a transatlantic flight, was the guest of the Club at luncheon, jointly with the Aero Club of New England. Lieut. Godfrey L. Cabot was introduced as presiding officer by President George S. Smith. Brief speeches of welcome were made by Governor Calvin Coolidge and Governor Bartlett of New Hampshire.
Commander Read told, in a modest and interesting manner, the story of his remarkable flight, concluding his remarks with a fervent appeal for greater interest on the part of American citizens in aërial navigation, in order that the United States may not be second to any other country in development of that important science.
The bowling season opened on Monday, September 22, and from all indications, this should be a banner year.
The house tournaments will be held as usual, and members are urged to enter at once, so that the tournaments can be started as soon as possible. Entries can be made with the attendant in charge of the alleys.
It was unanimously voted, by those present at the bowling smoker last spring, to inaugurate a new system of handicapping, and the tournaments will be run accordingly.
The first match will be rolled under the schedule rating, but thereafter the averages will be computed after each match, so that the handicaps will be figured from actual performances. This method has been successfully used by several other clubs.
A team will be entered in the Amateur Boston Pin League, and the good bowlers are earnestly requested to come forward and coöperate with the bowling committee to form a winning team.
