A very pleasant function took place in the Savoy Tea Booms hint evening, when the members of the Anglican Hairier and Amateur Athletic Club held their annual social. Early in the evening a dinner was provided, and then followed the presentation of prizes and a programme of songs and recitations. There was a good muster of members, and Mr hi. A; Rosevear (president of the Amateur Athletic Centre) was also present. Mr W. Breen occupied the chair.
Mr F. M. Reid (captain of the club), in a brief speech, .stated that ho was veiy glad to see one of the founders of the ciub present that evening—viz., Mr A. G. Smith. Although Mr Smith vv«u> not now an active meuiOer, he always took a keen interest in the affairs of the club.. (Applause.) In coiifgialulating tlie club on having had a successful season, the speaker stated that until just on the close of the season the attendances at tlie runs were
vciy good; and as they all knew 16 members had departed with the expeditionary Force for the front, the attendances naturally were curtailed. The club contained some good mater,’id, and ho was confident that with condistonit training they could annex the coming provincial amateur championship. In concluding, he paid eulogistic reference to the work performed by the club’s secretary (Mr A. K. Elder). ('Applause.) Mr Rose war thanked the club for the invitation extended to him to be present.
