The Merry ANDREWS on their REED
Will play us MORRIS dances,
And nothing MOORE shall we then need
Than see how NORRIS prances.
Yet, whilst he spins a WEBB fantastic,
A choir in WHYTE shall BLIGHthely sing,
And tho' our choice is none too plastic
As leading tenor—-why not DRING?

 From BARNETT to BRADFIFXT) the ionst doth fl\j,
So HARDEN your hearts and STEEL your nerves,
The fiery FURNISS is naught to this,
Such noise and tumult only serves
To WARD off care with clamorous bliss.
But if I scribble longer now,
The D<R>UCE a soul will stay to read,-
My pen is blunt, my pay is low,
'Tis almost time to stop indeed.
Therefore we greet you, Knight of Empire,
From BARNETT to BRADFIELD the toast doth fly,
Here's luck to you in each desire,
You're no doubt BOER'd—and so am I.
Youre r\o douht BOERcl-   Tm*

Chairman              ;..        Mr. T. J. SMITH
Vice-Chairman       ...       Mr. R. D. MORRISON
W<ARNI&{&.—Owing to length of programme no speaker, with exception of our
Guests, is allowed to exceed the five-minute limit*—By Order of the Shipping Guild*
 A is for ALLCHIN, just his name, I suppose?
If true of his face, is there room for his nose?
B stands for BULLOCK, a most useful beast,
But he must not be hurried, in his work at least.
C is for CROWE, from North of the Tweed,
Where they stick to the whisky we Southerners need.
D is the DOUGHTY deeds DUNNE in the War,
By C.P.R. heroes and a good many more.
E is good 'EVANS as h'Awty would say,
What use these 'ere haitches?   They get in the way.
F is for PURNISS, confirm'd bachelor 'twas said,
But—would you believe it?—he's engag'd to be wed.
G stands for GARDNER, you'd think he's on stilts,
The Girls know he isn't, when he's wearing his kilts.
H is for HARRIS, both Miss and Mister,-
Can it be true she's not even his sister?
I we have no use for, but I'll interpolate here,
It's just eye-wash we get now, tho' it's charged for as beer.
J is for JONES, who swears he is Saxon,
But the hairs on his head are not even flaxen!
K is for KINGSCOTE, the War Savings fiend;
What sum, we oft wonder, from his dupes has he gleaned?
L stands for LOCKLEy, and he stands for what?
Some say for his dignity, for he thinks that's a lot.
M-MAJOR MOORE of such Natural Resources,
That he "filled" a big place in His Majesty's Forces.
 J Hi~* •£___>•
 N is for NIGHTINGALE, a rare singing bird,
So rare is his song that it's never been heard.
0~- Tommy OSBORNE —a fierce gambler is he,
Drew blank in the Derby, then bought The Panther—hee! hee!
P stands for PIGGOTT, and oh! ever so many,
For their place in this rhyme I'd not give a PENNy.
Q—we've no names commencing with Q,
So we'll just have to try and MacQUARRIE do.
R is for ROBERTS, P.T. of that ilk,
Whose deeds gained for him the M.M. piece of silk.
S is for STEEL, a young lady of movement,
If she'd hurry more slowly 'twould be an improvement.
T stands for TREAD AW Ay, in charge up at Brum,
And also his brother who of Austria's had some.
U is uncommon and must therefore be Us,
For we work day and night and ne'er make a fuss.
V is for VICTOR, a Churchwarden they say,
But who would believe it on any weekday?
W for WOODLEy, old "Daddy" he's called,.
He is not so ancient, altho' he's so bald.
X the Xcitement we all felt—to be brief—
When we heard of the honour conferred on our Chief.
Y is for yOUNGER, we all wish we were,-
The girls say they are, but you know it's hot air.
Z is the Zenith of perfection in rhyme,
Which, like Peace, we shall reach if we live a long time.
