Nicholson, and his appointment was acclaimed by what was prohably a record attendance at an annual meeting. Some very nice things were said about Mr. Nicholson and a resolution was passed expressing thanks to him for his successful control of the affairs of the club for the past 14 years. Dr. Grant said he was very proud, to be elected president.
