Boston Pin Tournament Opens November 6
The Bowling Committee wishes to announce that the Boston Pin Tournament will start Tuesday night, November 6, at 8 o'clock. The rules governing the matches will be printed on the back of the schedules.
The change from a monthly to a weekly prize of a box of cigars for the three best consecutive strings meets with decided approval and has aroused keen competition among the members who enjoy bowling. The prize for the week ending October 20 was won by Mr. Thomas M. Womersley on a pinfall of 344.
ART AND LIBRARY
Mr. Vinton's Paintings
The Club has been very fortunate in having upon its walls some of the finest examples of the work of the late Frederick P. Vinton. It may interest members to know that these paintings are lent to the Club and may be purchased either for private ownership, or for presentation to the Club by any member interested in adding permanently to the beauty of the rooms.
The Committee acknowledges donation, from Prof. C. Frank Allen, of his new book, "Business Law for Engineers.'
Spencer J. Steinmetz has donated three volumes more to the Library.
HOUSE RULE NO. 19
At a meeting of the Board of Governors, held July 17, 1917, House Rule No. 19 was adopted as follows:
"The sum of $50 shall be the limit of indebtedness to the Club in any one month by any member, except in such cases as shall be approved by the Treasurer; and before serving dinners amounting to $50 or over the House Manager shall receive the approval of the Comptroller's office."

LIBERTY BOND SUBSCRIPTIONS

CIGARS TO SOLDIERS IN FRANCE
Members who contemplate sending cigars or smoking articles to the soldiers in France are reminded of the following regulations published by the War Department:
A general officer of the army will be stationed in Hoboken, N. J., as forwarding agent, and will pass judgment and arrange for the delivery of the packages in coöperation with the postmaster and express company officials in New York City.
To Search Packages
The rules provide that all parcel-post packages must be under seven pounds and be enclosed in wooden boxes; that express packages, also boxed, do not exceed 20 pounds in weight, and that the covering of such boxes be fitted to facilitate inspection. Food products must be in cans or glass jars.
Mail and express packages should be addressed as now prescribed by postal regulations and plainly marked "Christmas Box." They should be sent to Pier 1, Hoboken, N. J.
Every package, before shipment, will be searched for explosives or other dangerous matter. The regulations require that the contents of each box be clearly stated on the outside.
The War Department order provides that shipment of Christmas boxes may begin at once, but that none will be forwarded which reaches Hoboken after midnight Dec. 4. The name and address of the sender must be stated on the outside of each box.
Above prices subject to change without notice, due to war tax.

A NEW CIGAR SERVICE
With the installation of a new Humidor under the advice of an expert, the Club is ready to undertake the keeping of cigars for members who prefer to purchase in quantity. These cigars may be withdrawn as desired, so that members may keep actually on hand - at home or office
only enough for current needs, and their reserve stock will be cared for by the Club under conditions best calculated to maintain flavor and good condition. Delivery will be made by express, messenger or mail, as desired, at a small extra charge.
The regular stock of cigars offers a large variety (the list is given herewith), but any brand not usually carried will be ordered if members who desire to avail themselves of the above-mentioned service will communicate with the cigar clerk.
Members who do not find it convenient to order in person may use the attached coupon.
