AUTHORS' AND ARTISTS'
A committee meeting of the Queensland Authors' and Artists' Association was held on Tuesday, the president (Professor Stable) in the chair. As the next general meeting of the association falls in authors'
week it will be merged in that function, and will take place in the Old Normal School on October 18. The pro- gramme, consisting of short lecturettes on Queensland authors, such as Grant, Jack M'Laren, John Nicholson, and Mrs. Camp-
bell Praed, and music by Queensland com- posers, will be arranged by the association. Members and friends are asked to make a special effort to be present that night. The catering will be in the hands of the ladies of the committee. The syllabus for the ensuing year was arranged, and, it is hoped, will be in the hands of members very shortly. A sub-committee was ap- pointed to make arrangements for the Academy, and sending-in day was fixed for November 1. The ladies of the committee will provide the entertainment during Academy week. It was resolved that the Governor (Sir John Goodwin) should be asked to open the Academy. Mrs. M. Elliott was elected a full member of the association, and Mrs. J. J. Stable, Misses Gertrude Anderson and Joan Thompson, and Messrs. Bolland (senior and junior) and Ryan were elected associate members. Mr. Inigo Jones gave notice that at the next general meeting of the association he would move that a research sub-committee should be formed for the purpose of discovering new writers. It was resolved, that the sec- retary should write to contributors to the Press, bringing before them the aims and objects of the association. There will be a special meeting of the committee on the last Tuesday of the month to finalise arrangements for the Academy. On the motion of Mr. Ashton Murphy and Mr. V. Bennett it was decided that £5 should be handed over to the Sketch Club to tide them over their present difficulties. Miss Jones appealed for books on art to be donated to the Sketch Club library.
