Practically the only important physical change in the Club during the past year was the construction of an Oyster Bar on the lower floor. This was done to meet the call for the kind of service that would enable members to eat with the least possible delay.

During its operation it was well patronized. The coming of the summer season led the House Committee to believe a cafeteria service should be installed in the Grill Room (it is ordinarily closed during the summer months), and this service was put into operation, and during its logical season was much used by members. It was the House Committee's idea that this cafeteria service should be discontinued in the fall, but consideration of the fact that with both the Grill Room and the eleventh-floor dining room available neither one has been used to anything like its full capacity, and in further consideration of the difficulties in the matter of help, it was decided to continue the self-service feature in the Grill Room and thereby to divert as much dinner and luncheon business as possible to the main dining-room.

Results have, as far as we can estimate them, proved that, under the circumstances, this was the wise course. One other small change in location was made, the moving of the cigar counter from the left-hand side of the entrance hall over to the right-hand side, where it is more in the line of circulation, and where the volume has already shown an increase of $3,500.

It has been necessary to raise the prices of food, liquors, and of the rooms, during the past year, on account of the very greatly increased cost of raw materials and service.

Whenever possible, the House Committee has eliminated every expenditure, with the assistance of Mr. Westcott, and the entire operation of the Clubhouse has been conducted as economically as was practicable.

The introduction of women as employees in the cafeteria, check rooms and telephone switchboard has been made, and the House Committee feels that this change has been an improvement.

During the year ending October 31, 1918, the Entertainment Committee has arranged 45 occasions for the enjoyment of members and their guests. The majority of these, 15, were preceded by a dinner in the banquet room; 12 were accompanied by a luncheon; II were illustrated lectures, and 7 were concerts and musical entertainments. In accordance with the policy which has been maintained since the founding of the Club, and for which it is nationally conspicuous, the topics have been most timely, and the speakers men of the hour. While in many instances the committee has been able to provide occasions as a result of the war, it is also true that, on account of present conditions, the committee is finding it more difficult to secure prominent speakers.

On several occasions the committee has coöperated with some of

the service clubs by inviting officers and enlisted men of the army and navy to such entertainments as might be of particular interest to them, thus broadening the usefulness of the Club and this phase of its activities.

Notable among those who were entertained and by whom our members were addressed were the British Ministry of Munitions; the Chinese and Serbian Commissions; Sir Walter Lawrence; Stephane Lauzanne, Editor of Le Matin; Lieut. Bruno Roselli, of the Italian army; Isaac F. Marcosson, and Donald MacMillan, explorer. The appropriation for the year was.

In order to provide these entertainments and conduct these occasions in a proper and efficient manner, the committee expended..

Below is a list of the clubs with which the Boston City Club has reciprocal relations. Members of the Boston City Club may have all the privileges of these clubs by presentation of their membership cards in the Boston City Club, such privileges being extended on a cash basis.




[blocks in formation]


The list of clubs with which the Boston City Club has reciprocal relations is correct as printed in the BULLETIN each month, some changes having been made from the list which appears on the back of the membership card.


Christmas boxes for Club employees have been placed in the entrance hall and in the main dining room. In the past the amount subscribed through these boxes has been far from proportionate to the size and character of the Club. Employees receive no tips and the House Committee feels justified in asking members to evince their appreciation of faithful service by contributing generously.

There are among the older employees not a few who have remained in the Club's service despite the fact that labor conditions have been such that they could, undoubtedly, have bettered themselves by going elsewhere. This is the sort of loyalty that deserves real recognition, and it is earnestly hoped that this recognition will be forthcoming in generous measure.

* Members who do not find it convenient to make use of the boxes may send checks to the House Committee.

W. E. SKILLINGS, Chairman.
