Goldings Old Boys' Association
The Annual General Meeting was held at the School, by kind permission of Mr. Wheatley. Our treasurer reported a loss on the year's working
of £21 and a balance in hand of £19. As will be appreciated, this is not a very happy state of affairs, and it was unanimously decided to make
an all-out effort this year to get the funds back to a healthy state. We lost rather heavily on the two dances during the year, and all expenses
were up." The normal source of income was about the same as last year.
A new committee was elected and is as follows: President, Mr. R. F. Wheatley, B.SC.; Chairman, Tom Allen; Secretary, Jimmy James;
Treasurer, "Ben" Lines; Assistant Treasurer, Brian McCarthy; Committee, George Brittain, Michael Maxim.
Since the A.G.M. we are sorry to say that Jimmy James has intimated that he will be leaving the area to take up employment elsewhere, and
Tom Allen has very nobly undertaken the job of secretary. We do thank Jimmy for his four years devoted service and wish him every success
when he moves.
We have entered the Junior Football League Division II and look forward to a good season There are four additional teams in the league this
year, so there won't be many spare Saturdays!
We also regret that George Bousfield has found it necessary to give up the Table-tennis section, and again our thanks are extended for his
work on our behalf in this field during the past four years. We are entering two teams this year in the H. & D.T.T. League.
For the benefit of Old Boys who do not live in the Hertford area, I would remind them that they can keep in touch with us by becoming a
"distant member". Instead of paying a weekly subscription like the local members, 5/- per annum ensures a copy of THE GOLDONIAN, and
notification of all happenings. At the moment there are 22 members on the books.
The book I have chosen this term is The Mystery Man by J. M. Walsh, which was kindly given to the Library by Mr. Millar.
The story starts with a man named Mr. Harold Boyne, a gambler, heavily in debt. The Star-Gazers' Club is his favourite haunt.
One night as he is leaving the club a man stops him and asks Boyne to follow him. A little mystified he does so. He is shown into a room where
a man is sitting behind a desk, and another is leaning against a safe, placed by the wall. He is questioned by the men about money he owes them.
A few days later Boyne's body is found on a common nearby.
A few weeks later a raid is made by the police, on the club. A man is arrested and charged with possessing dangerous drugs. He is allowed bail.
Soon after a Mr. Tenney arrives from China. He has been out there on business. He knows the club very well. One evening he is just entering it,
when he sees a man he knows. He invites him to come upstairs for a talk. When in the room he draws a gun, He gives him ten seconds to tell
him where a girl he knows, is living. As he is counting, the door opens, and in comes Weng Cho the owner of the club Weng Cho knows
where the girl lives and is forced to tell tell Tenney. Weng Cho offers to drive him to the house, The next day the body of Tenney is found on a
common. The murderer leaves a clue this time and is caught up with, He turns out to be a man living under several names.
