Annual Staff Dance

Annual Staff Dance.

The annual staff dance was held in the Adelphi Cabaret on 4th August under the patronage of the Rt. Hon. J. G. Coates, Prime Minister and Minister of Railways, and the Railway Board of Management. It was one of the most successful gatherings of the season. Despite the fact that there were 230 couples present, the dancing floors were not over-crowded.

A very nicely arranged supper was served (in four sittings) and reflected great credit on the Cabaret Management and staff.

The function was a most enjoyable one, much credit for its success being due to the Committee which consisted of Mrs. Haslam, Misses McQueen, Aitken and Tolley; Messrs. H. J. Wynne (chairman), Lynde, Guiness, Spidy, Roussell, Millington, Franklin, Sawers, Sutherland, Syme, Fabian, Welsh, Cunningham, Beaglehole, Tulloch and Tierney.

The chaperons were Mesdames Jones, Mason, Mouat and Wynne.

Mr. W. H. Simmons acted as Hon. secretary, and Mr. G. T. Tierney as Hon. treasurer, and they contributed much to the success of the dance.
