Members will note a change in the appearance of this issue. The photos of KEEWATIN and CANADIAN CRUISER which have graced our masthead for the last eight volumes have done stalwart duty, but your Executive Committee felt that it was about time to exchange them for photos more in keeping with the nature of your Society. Accordingly, on the left side you will now find a view of the C.S.L. sidewheeler TORONTO taken by J. H. Bascom, while on the right appears the package freighter CITY OF TORONTO in a photo by the Editor. We hope that you will approve of our selection.
This being the last issue of Volume Eight of the "Scanner", we would like to thank all those who have taken the time to send us news over the past year and to formally acknowledge the receipt of correspondence from many of our members. We hope that we will continue to hear from you, as it is only with your help that we can continue to keep this publication current and of historical interest.
We must also remind our members that MEMBERSHIP FEES ARE NOW DUE AND PAYABLE. In order to keep our costs (and hence your fees) to the minimum, we will not be mailing individual notices, so we would ask that you sit down right now and send a cheque for $10.00 Canadian Funds (or the equivalent in United States Funds bearing in mind the rate of exchange) to our Treasurer, Mr. James M. Kidd, 83 Humberview Road, Toronto, Ontario, M6S 1W9. Your early remittance will be appreciated.
In the New Member Department, a hearty welcome goes out to James F. Glynn of Rochester, to Herbert I. Sheridan of Brockville, to Dr. Gordon C. Shaw of Toronto, to S. J. Shaffer of Thunder Bay, to James O. Sprunt of St. Catharines, to Walter Sockovie of Welland, to Walter M. Hirthe of Milwaukee and to Daniel Berube of Rimouski, Quebec.
