In the New Member Department, a hearty welcome goes out to Brian Gamula of Niagara-on-the-Lake, to John J. Devison of Islington, and to Gordon B. Wansbrough of Scarborough. We are always pleased to receive new memberships and some of our readers might wish to consider a membership in T.M.H.S. and subscription to the "Scanner" as a seasonal gift for a friend who shares the marine interest. If so, please contact our Treasurer, Mr. James M. Kidd, 83 Humberview Road, Toronto, Ontario, M6S 1W9.

With this issue, we extend our very best wishes to member Capt. Harold Barklem, of the Toronto Island ferry service, who is presently recuperating following a recent illness. We look forward to seeing Harold back on the ferry again soon.

The 1978 navigation season has been an interesting one on the lakes and we have enjoyed keeping our members up to date on the year's developments. Soon, however, the lakers will be rushing to load their last cargoes of the season and will be heading to winter quarters. In the words of the late C. H. J. Snider, the cold lake smokes and it's time to lay up.

To all our members and their families go our very best wishes for a Merry Christmas and every happiness in the New Year.
