He met the Mayor and a number of Councillors and visited most of the beauty spots round the harbour by launch. He , also visited the hotels and boarding houses and expressed himself as extremely pleased with the manner in which they were conducted.

The sporting tourist should be 1 catered for as he would return \ time and time again if he could get his sport as well as his holi- " day.
