The Summer Club is the latest addition to the ranks of the organized cyclers. A party of wheel enthusiasts banded together last Monday evening at 17 Van Ness Avenue. Short runs into the country will be a feature of the club. The following officers were chosen: O. T. Green, president; J. Basch, secretary and treasurer; Joseph Kragan, captain; G. Hensley, first lieutenant; Ed Flynn, second lieutenant; L. G. Ratto, color-bearer.

The members are all native sons and very appropriately have chosen our State insignia, the California poppy, as their emblem. The membership is now sixteen and is limited to twenty-five. June 10 is set for their initial outing. On that date the club will journey to Santa Cruz, and will be the guests of the Pilot Wheelmen of that city during the carnival week. Several of the riders will take part in the parade, with the expectation of carrying away some of the honors for decorated wheels. Others are entered in the races and seem confident of winning laurels. The organization will soon make application for membership in the Associated Cycling Clubs.

All communications should be addressed to 412 Montgomery street, J. Basch secretary.
