The Camera Club has grown steadily since its organization last April, its total membership now amounting to sixty. The dark room in the basement of Sever hall is in good order, affording every facility for work. Developing trays of all sizes, hypo tanks, graduates, scales, wash-boxes, gas and running water, are at the disposal of members. The sink has been lined through out with zinc, making leakage an impossibility. What the club now needs is an enlarging lantern and more lockers. A small debt remains, which will probably be raised before summer, and it is hoped that an enlarged membership will enable the club to increase the dark room accommodations.
Men wishing to join must either have their names proposed by some member, or send them to the secretary, at least a week before the meeting. The initition fee is $2.00. The next meeting will be on Monday, March 24th.
The club is to prepare a collection of lantern slides illustrating Cambridge and vicinity. All members are requested to secure as many views as possible and as soon as possible. The subjects will include landscapes, buildings, interiors, scenes from college life, and everything pertaining to the university. The negatives may be of any size and the slides will be made from them by members interested in this branch of the art. The collection will be shown before the close of the college year, probably in Boylston Hall. Next year there will be exchanges with other clubs, and many interesting exhibitions may be expected. As many negatives should be brought to the next meeting as is possible, that work on the slides may be begun at once. A special discount of 13 per cent. on all photographic goods, is allowed members of the club purchasing of Barker and Starbird, Bromfield St., Boston. Seals are ready for distribution and may be had by calling on the secretary at 34. Hastings between 6.30 and 7.30 p. m. The officrs of the club are as follows: W. M. Turner, '91, president; R. W. Wood, jr, '91, secretary and treasurer; G. E. Dadmun, '90, A. E. Tileston, '91, K. Brown, '91, J. C. Hubbard, '92, executive committee.
