Committee Meetings are held on the first Sunday in each month; the meeting places have yet to be arranged.
Inter-Meets will be announced as soon as arranged.
The Model Rules for Unions, as printed in the Handbook, have been adopted by this Union.
A DATE TO REMEMBER.
Whitsun—An Inter-Meet and Camp for all Unions in the south at Gloucester (or near). Come and make this the jolliest camp you have been to.
As the Clarion has only been a short time in the south, the Clarion Club caterers
are few and far between, therefore all members are urged to co-operate with the
Union Secretary and Committee to improve upon this.
And, finally, don't forget the Club motto:
"Socialism the Hope of the World."

Ian adds: Wally Newman, later a prominent local Labour councillor, has cropped up many times in connection with the old Brighton Section. G. Cree must surely be Gordon Cree, who I remember as Treasurer of Brighton Trades Council in the late 1960s.
