Resigns With Regret. Among the 10 withdrawals during th« year was R. N. Clark, whose interest and work was responsible to B large extent for the advancement ©f the organization. The-receipt-of his resignation as a member was received generally by the membership with regret. In making his official farewell, Mr. Clark recalls memories of many pleasant hours at the Rock River country club and at the same time reviews a few personal observations which are received as constructive suggestions. His adieu to the club Is contained in the following letter: "When we came to Sterling In the of 1917 the youthful golf club the factor which induced us to remain for the summer, and this same golf club, coupled with its delightful companionships, has been of chief influence la causing our return for ten succeeding summers, when our original intentions contemplated an immediate permanent residence in an all year temperate climate, "la executing oar long delnyw early plans, leaving Sterling la the unpleasant feature. Severing the connection with Bock Riwr Country »GHib -brings—only—d*epest~-pegf6U tempered however by memories of happy hours, including those of work and enjoyment on the club grounds. That the Club will continue to grow prosper, and still more add to the enjoyment of its members and guests Is our sincere wish. "With this official farewell, I am tempted to add a few personal observations which I hope will not be amiss. 1 frequently wonder If the average member actually realis.. the present status of a country club in connection with the community it represents, and governs his interest accordingly. This idea has impressed me to my more recent travels and contact with this form of Bodal life. "The golf course was once looked upon as a toy of the rich and well U> do.

At the beginning of the jwr there wa» & deficit of $162.40. which was wiped out and a balance of 51,541.72 left in the treasury. W. P. Flock, chairman of the house and entertainment committee, reported that six picnic suppers and six parties were held at the club during the season and-that 1.955 meals were served. He voiced commendation of the aervlces of the steward and stewardess. Mr. and Mrs. D. M, Stevens, which was con- cflrred in by the membership, who gave them a vote- of thanks. C. C.
