The April meeting was a resounding success even though those present suffered through the attempts of Ye Ed. to chair the meeting during the absence of our president. The address by Lorne Joyce on the Lloyd Tankers fleet was most interesting and his approach was, as usual, spellbinding. We sincerely thank Lorne for being our April speaker.

The May Dinner Meeting will be over by the time you read these words, so we feel it appropriate at this time also to thank Alan Howard for graciously accepting our invitation to speak at this special occasion.

Present plans call for the Mid-Summer issue to be ready for distribution during August. This will give Ye Ed. a much-needed rest and will allow him to pry his fingers off the typewriter keys and attend to other matters. Even though we will not be coming to you monthly via these pages during the summer, we hope that our regular correspondents will continue to remember us when they have some tidbit of information to pass along.

In the New Member Department, a hearty welcome goes out to Capt. Horace H. Thorn of Point Edward, Ontario. For many years, Capt. Thorn was master of our old friend, CEMENTKARRIER.
