The annual general meeting of the Auto Cycle Club Council was held at 119. Piccadilly, on the evening of March 26th. under the chairmanship of Mr. Robert Todd. A large number of members was present, including many representatives of affiliated clubs.

After the minutes of the last council meeting, the report of the committee, and the accounts for the past year had been received and passed, the election of the club officers and the committee took place.

For 1907, Mr. C. D. Rose, M.P.. was elected president, while the vice-presidents are Professors C. V. Boys, F.R.S.. and H. L. Callendar, F.R.S.. Messrs. E. Dangerfield, S. F. Edge. M. O'Gorman, Col. H. C. L. Holden, R.A., F.R.S.. Robert Todd, the Hon. A. Stanley, and Prof. Hele-Shaw.

The 1907 A.C.C. committee consists of

Messrs. R. Todd (chairman). C. A. Smith (vice-chairman), E. M. P. Boileau, H. M. Wyatt, A. Sharp. J. Lyons-Sampson, J. Beevor and L. Mallam representing the [[Royal Automobile Club;

Messrs, W. Gunn, B. R. Chatterton, H P. E. Harding, V. Hart, W. Pratt, G. Reynolds, H. G. Cove, and J. B. G. Brooker, representing the private members;

Messrs. W. H. Wells (Motor Cycling Club), E. J. Bass (Essex M.C.), R. W. Ayton (Coventry M.C.), H. B. Renner (Lewisham A.C.). G. W. Blackaller (Cardiff M.C.). J.

London M.C.C.). and A. E. Newton (the Motor Union), representing the affiliated clubs.

In connection with the election of the affiliated club delegates, considerable discussion took place — in which the Rev. Hassard Short, took a prominent part — as to the number of club delegates eligible to serve on the committee. Mr. Todd and Mr. Orde replied, the result being that the new committee was recommended to call an extraordinary general meeting to go into the matter more fully.

The two agreements between the A.C.C. and the Motor Union were then put before the meeting and passed; and a vote of thanks was accorded to the R.A.C.. coupling with it- the names of Messrs. Todd and Orde. who had worked so untiringly for the good of the Club in this matter.
