financial position. He extended a
welcome to Ald. Beckman, of Grafton,

THE BANQUET.
The banquet, which followed the
meeting, as usual proved the most
popular part of the evening. The re-
past was laid out on a long table, which
was decorated with the club's colors.
Grafton Water Brigade, Ald. F. Beck-
man stated that he had been connected
with the Grafton Brigade for a num-
ber of year and commented on the
friendly atmosphere which existed be-
tween the clubs on both sides of the
river. He apologised for the absence
of Mr. Sam See and Mr. C. Mackney,
of the Grafton Water Brigade.
Mr. Beckman pointed out that
friendly rivalry had always been
maintained during the weekly flutters,
which was worth while carrying on at
a time like the present.
During floodtime the assistance off
the South Grafton Brigade had always
proved most valuable. He hoped that
the happy spirit would always exist
between the two clubs.
SHOULD FOLLOW EXAMPLE.
Responding, Mr. Durrington stated
that the South Grafton Brigade was
functioning very well, but this was
only possible with the co-operation of
the Grafton Club. The successful
carrying out of their activities greatly
depended on this co-operation. He
humorously pointed out that this was
Grafton seemed to be able to carry on
in a friendly atmosphere. He added,
that other organisations in both towns
should follow the example set by the
two brigades.
Mr. Durrington stated that the South
Grafton Brigade members had always

was proposed by the brigade captain,
Mr. Stan Schwinghammer, who pointed
out that there were really no kindred
brigades, as they were all one large
body with various headquarters on
different parts of the river. He also
where the same friendly spirit pre-
vailed. Mr. Schwinghammer stated
that it was very pleasing to see the
kindred brigades on the river associat-
ing themselves so well with each other.
Mr. Eric See responded to this toast,
and stated that without these kindred
same keen rivalry which was the
foundation of many friendships. He
commented on the spirit of sportsman-
ship which existed between all rowers
on the river. South Gfafton, he added,
always did their best in the sport and
RIVER NOT APPRECIATED.
Mr. P. Hutchinson proposed the toast,
of the Grafton and South Grafton
Regatta Committee. He stated that
the body was doing its best to revive
rowing on the river. He commented
on the apathy of local residents in
not making better use of the Clarence
River. "If other towns had this won-
derful facility," said Mr. Hutchinson,
fore long the Grafton regatta would
be known far and wide as one of the
largest regattas in Australia. The
Regatta Committee should be congratu-
lated on the way they were reviving
rowing on the Clarence.
As representative of the Regatta
apologised for the absence of their
president (Mr. C. M. Pollack). He
said that the committee was formed
about five years ago with the idea of
had been raised. It was very pleas-
made them realise that their work was
riot in vain. The local rowers were
doing good work by keeping up the
weekly floodboat flutters and Glad-
the week-ends kept rowing on the map
throughout the year. ' At Easter time
both Grafton and Maclean held their
regattas, which attracted prominent
rowers from distant parts to come to
pit their skill against local scullers.
been responsible for bringing out good
scullers such as the See boys, one of
the champion, Evans Paddon.
ADVERTISED THE TOWN.
Mr. Schwinghammer pointed out that
rowing should be maintained on the
river for many reasons, one of which
all young men will endeavor to hand
in their nominations for the forthcom-
ing Grafton regatta and give the com-
mittee all the encouragement and sup-
port to which it is entitled," concluded
the speaker.
Mr. R. Mitchell also supported Mr.
Schwinghammer's remarks and added
formed from business houses in South
Grafton this year to row in the regatta.
Such races, he said, always attracted
the interest of the local residents.
At this stage of the meeting, Mr.
Percy See gave an interesting resume
on his trip to Canada with Evans
Paddon, which was appreciated by all.
Other toasts included the toast of
the '"Visitors" by Mr. Vic. Greentree,
and responded to by Mr. Beckman, and
the toast of "The Press" by Mr. F.
Before the official part of the even-
ing closed the president presented the
W. Dreise Cup to Mr. Jack Walters and
congratulated him on his creditable
win. Mr. Walters suitably re-
sponded.
