The glass factory, the tourist park expansion and the possibility of securing of an airport. President Donald Holbrook reported a meeting of the Board of Directors, called to consider the possibility of building a factory to manufacture', glass ware. Negotiations are proceed-' ing very satisfactorily up to the present, and the committee is very hopeful of its success. John Doherty reported for the committee on the establishment of an air port for Clare. A representative from the office of Col.

The ser geant revealed a thorough knowledge <*>f the traffic laws, ana recalled a number of accidents to which he ha.'' been called, to illustrate his answer: to the numerous questions. The mem bers entered freely into the discus $ion and showed a deep interest ir the subject of safe driving. This was one of the most interest ing meetings we have had for a Ion? time, and many of the members ex ».j0rear,*A themselves that a free discus- | si on of such matters of interest * would indeed be hplpful to the Cham ber of Commerce and the community at large. President Donald Holbrook on behalf of the members thanked Sergt. Wagner for his very able leadrrshir on matters of such vital importance , to all drivers of automobiles. ' Just prior to closing a very lively discussion Was entered into on how best to stimulate more interest in ou*J meetings, and how to secur? a larg er attendance of the business and -professional" men, and also- how to encourage tbe farmers of our community to attend. ■- "•;**"'". ■"■-.-■■ .
