Just received a letter from Wendell Haines, director for Chapter 65, regarding some of their activities for the year:

"Chapter 65 has had very interesting meetings during the past year, winter and spring months. Our meetings have been informative, social and educational, with films, demonstrated talks on homebuilding, and a dinner/dance last fall.

"This spring we had a radio course for our members, at the completion of which the Department of Transport examined and passed 21 members.

"We have made donations to the Air Cadets, and to a high school aeronautical club for their building project, a Taylor Monoplane.

"In the fall, we plan to have an advanced aviation ground school which could lead to commercial-type examinations by the Department of Transport."

Nice to see they were engaging with the community of youngsters. — Ed.
