Our speaker at the March meeting was Dr. Gordon Shaw who gave us a most interesting talk on the operations of the Canadian Pacific B.C. coastal steamships from the early fifties onwards. Dr. Shaw was intimately involved in the transition of the once-great fleet from its glory days to its present status and he gave us a fine insight into the problems faced by the service. The program was much enjoyed by all and we sincerely thank Dr. Shaw for his kindness in addressing the faithful.

The Annual Dinner Meeting will be held on Friday, May 13th and our guest speaker will be Peter B. Worden. Please note carefully the date. A roast beef dinner will be served at 7:00 p.m. in the Ship Inn (located in the cellar of the Marine Museum of Upper Canada) and the bar will be open earlier for those who might enjoy a pre-dinner restorative. The cost will be $10.75 per person and guests will be welcome.

The capacity of the restaurant is limited and reservations are required. There will be no tickets available at the door. By the time this appears in print, we may well be sold out but those wishing to enquire should immediately contact Mr. James M. Kidd, 83 Humberview Road, Toronto, Ontario, M6S 1W9. Correspondence must enclose remittance for tickets desired.

In the New Member Department, a hearty welcome goes out to Ronald Graham of Goderich, to Hubert Brooks of Toronto and to Bryce Grant of Windsor.
