TRANSCRIPT

[ Applause ]

>> OOH!

THAT WAS SCOTT THAT VAT ANY

DOING, WHAT?

WILLY HOOPS ONE-MAN CIRCUS.

HE'S GONNA BE BACK WITH US

LATER ON TO DO SOME MORE OF IT

FOR US.

SCOTT IS A REGULAR PERFORMER

AT DUDLEY RIGS.

AND BEFORE BEFORE WE THAT WE

HEARD CORTISONE.

I THINK WE'D ALL LIKE TO

PROVIDE THE ENTERTAINMENT

COMMITTEE -- I THINK WE'D ALL

LIKE TO THANK THE

ENTERTAINMENT COMMITTEE FOR

PROVIDING ENTERTAINMENT FOR

TODAY'S MEETING.

NOW, BEFORE WE GET TO DESSERT,

IT'S TIME FOR THE ANNUAL

TREASURER'S REPORT FROM Mr.

RUFSEDER, RIGHT?

WHO'S NOT HERE.

OH.

SO WE WILL GET THE ANNUAL

TREASURER'S REPORT FROM HIS --

ASSISTANT, Mr. WALDO.

Mr. WALDO. [ Applause ]

>> THANK YOU, Mr. CLAIR.

CAN YOU HEAR ME ALL RIGHT?

I SHOULD TAKE BUT A VERY FEW

MOMENTS OF YOUR TIME THIS

EVENING, FOR I REALIZE THAT

YOU WOULD MUCH RATHER BE

WATCHING THIS INTERESTING

ENTERTAINMENT THAN TO A DRY

FINANCIAL STATEMENT.

BUT I AM REMINDED OF A VERY

FUNNY STORY WHICH PROBABLY ALL

OF YOU HAVE -- PROBABLY ALL OF

YOU HAVE HEARD.

WELL, IT SEEMS THAT THERE WERE

THESE TWO MEN WALKING DOWN THE

STREET WHEN THEY CAME -- NO,

WAIT.

I SHOULD HAVE SAID, IN THE

FIRST PLACE, THAT THERE WAS A

PARROT, WHICH WAS HANGING OUT

IN FRONT OF A STORE -- OR NO,

NO.

RATHER, BELONGING TO ONE OF

THESE TWO MEN.

WELL, THAT IS THE FIRST

IRISHMAN -- NO.

WELL, ANYWAY, THIS PARROT, HE --

THE PARROT --

NOW, IN CONNECTION WITH

READING THIS REPORT, THERE ARE

ONE OR TWO POINTS WHICH

Mr. CLEAR WANTED BROUGHT UP IN

CONNECTION WITH IT.

AND HE'S ASKED ME TO BRING

THEM UP IN CONNECTION -- TO

BRING THEM UP.

IN THE FIRST PLACE, THERE IS

WORK, WHICH WE ARE TRYING TO

DO UP THERE IN OUR LITTLE

PLACE AT SILVER LAKE.

A WORK WHICH WE FEEL NOT ONLY

FILLS A VERY DEFINITE NEED IN

THE COMMUNITY BUT ALSO FILLS A

VERY DEFINITE NEED IN THE

COMMUNITY.

I DON'T THINK THAT MANY

MEMBERS OF THE SOCIETY REALIZE

JUST HOW BIG THE WORK IS THAT

WE ARE TRYING TO DO UP THERE.

FOR INSTANCE, I DON'T THINK IT

IS GENERALLY KNOWN THAT MOST

OF OUR BOYS UP THERE ARE

BETWEEN THE AGES OF 14.

NOW, WE FEEL BY TAKING A BOY

AT THIS AGE, WE CAN GET CLOSER

TO HIS REAL NATURE.

FOR A BOY HAS A REAL NATURE.

YOU MAY BE SURE.

AND BRING HIM INTO CLOSER

CONTACT, NOT ONLY WITH THE

SCHOOL, WITH THE PARENTS, AND

WITH EACH OTHER, BUT ALSO WITH

THE TOWN IN WHICH THEY LIVE.

THE COUNTRY TO WHOSE FLAG THEY

PAY ALLEGIANCE, AND TO THE

TOWN WHICH THEY LIVE.

NOW, THE FOURTH POINT WHICH

Mr. CLEAR WANTED BROUGHT UP

WAS THAT IN CONNECTION WITH

THE INSTALLATION OF THE NEW

FURNACE LAST FALL.

THERE SEEMS TO BE CONSIDERABLE

CONTROVERSY GOING AROUND THAT

THIS WAS NOT DONE AS

ECONOMICALLY AS IT MIGHT HAVE

BEEN DONE.

WHEN, IN FACT, IT WAS DONE

JUST AS ECONOMICALLY AS IT

MIGHT HAVE BEEN DONE.

IN FACT, EVEN MORE SO.

I HAVE HERE A REPORT OF THE

FURNACE COMMITTEE SHOWING HOW

THE WHOLE THING WAS HANDLED

FROM START TO FINISH, AND I

THINK THAT YOU'LL SEE THAT THE

WHOLE THING WAS HANDLED --

WELL, THAT PRETTY WELL CLEARS

UP THE END OF THAT WORK.

THOSE OF YOU WHO CONTRIBUTED

SO GENIOUSLY LAST YEAR TO THE

FLOATING HOSPITAL HAVE --

GENEROUSLY TO THE FLOATING

HOSPITAL HAVE PROBABLY BEEN

WONDERING, WELL, WHAT BECAME

OF ALL THAT MONEY?

[ Laughter ]

WELL, I WAS SPEAKING ON THIS

SUBJECT JUST LAST WEEK, AT OUR

UPTOWN BRANCH, AND AFTER THE

MEETING, A DEAR, DEAR LITTLE

OLD LADY, ALL DRESSED IN

LAVENDER CAME UP ONTO THE

PLATFORM AND, LAYING HER HAND

ON MY ARM, SAID, Mr. SO AND

SO -- WELL, SHE CALLED ME BY

MY NAME, Mr. SO AND SO, WHAT

THE HELL DID YOU DO WITH ALL

THE MONEY WE GAVE YOU LAST

YEAR?

[ Laughter ]

WELL, I I JUST LAUGHED AND

PUSHED HER OFF THE PLATFORM.

BUT IT HAS COME TO THE

ATTENTION OF THE COMMITTEE

THAT PERHAPS SOME OF YOU, LIKE

THAT DEAR OLD LADY, WOULD BE

INTERESTED IN KNOWING THE

DISPOSITION OF THE FUNDS.

NOW, Mr. ROTSEDER,

UNFORTUNATELY, OUR

TREASURER -- OR RATHER, OUR

TREASURER, UNFORTUNATELY, IS

CONFINED IN HIS HOME THIS

EVENING WITH A BAD HEAD COLD.

AND I HAVE BEEN ASKED IF I --

SORRY.

OH.

I HAVEN'T -- OH.

YEAH. EXCUSE ME FOR JUST A MOMENT,

PLEASE.

OH!

[ Laughter ]

THANK YOU.

WELL, THE JOKE SEEMS TO BE ON

ME.

Mr. ROTSEDER HAS PNEUMONIA.

[ Laughter ]

THANK YOU.

WELL, FOLLOWING NOW, THEN, IS

A SUMMARY OF THE TREASURER'S

REPORT.

DURING THE YEAR 1980, AND BY

THAT HAS MEANT 1979, THE CALL

SOCIETY RECEIVED THE FOLLOWING

INDO NATIONS -- THE FOLLOWING

IN DONATIONS.

B.L.G., $500.

G.K.M., $500.

LADI AND MILLIE, $500.

IN MEMORY OF A HAPPY SUMMER AT

RYE BEACH, $10.

PROCEEDS OF THE SALE OF COATS

AND HATS LEFT IN THE BOAT

HOUSE, $14.55.

AND THEN THE JUNIOR LEAGUE

GAVE A PERFORMANCE OF PINAFOR,

FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE FUND,

WHICH, UNFORTUNATELY, RESULTED

IN THE DEFICIT OF $300.

THEN FROM DUES AND CHARGES,

$2,354.75.

NOW, MAKING A TOTAL RECEIPTS

AMOUNTING TO $3,640.75.

NOW, IN THE MATTER OF

EXPENDITURES, THE CLUB HAS NOT

BEEN SO FORTUNATE.

THERE WAS THE UNSETTLED

CONDITION OF BUSINESS AND

THE -- IN THE LATE SPRING TO

CONTEND WITH, WITH THE

RESULTING RATHER DISCOURAGING

FIGURES, I'M AFRAID.

EXPENDITURES, $23,574.85.

THEN THERE WAS A LOSS OWING TO,

WELL, SEVERAL LITTLE THINGS,

$3,326.70.

CAR FARE, $4,452.25.

OH, AND THEN Mr. CLEAR'S

EXPENSE ACCOUNT, WHEN HE WENT

DOWN TO SEE THE WORK WHICH

THEY ARE DOING IN BALTIMORE,

THAT CAME TO $256.50.

BUT I'M SURE THAT YOU WILL ALL

AGREE WITH ME THAT IT WAS

WORTH IT TO FIND OUT WHAT

THEY'RE DOING IN BALTIMORE.

THEN UNDER THE GENERAL HEAD OF

ODDS AND ENDS, 2 200$537.50,

MAKING A TOTAL DISBURSEMENT OF

$4416,546.75 OR A NET DEFICIT

OF -- WELL, SEVERAL THOUSAND

DOLLARS.

NOW, THESE FIGURES BRING US

ONLY DOWN TO OCTOBER.

IN OCTOBER, MY SISTER WAS

MARRIED.

AND IN THE GENERAL CONFUSION,

WE -- THE HOUSE WAS ALL TORN

UP AND WE LOST TRACK OF THE

FIGURES FOR MAY AND AUGUST.

BUT ALL THOSE WISHING THE

APPROXIMATE FIGURES FOR MAY

AND AUGUST, MAY OBTAIN THEM

FROM ME IN THE VESTRY AFTER

DINNER WHERE I WILL BE WITH

PLEDGE CARD FOR THOSE OF YOU

WHO WISH TO SUBSCRIBE OVER AND

ABOVE YOUR ANNUAL DUES.

AND I HOPE THAT EACH AND EVERY

ONE OF YOU HERE TONIGHT WILL

LOOK DEEP INTO HIS HEART, AND

INTO HIS POCKETBOOK AND SEE IF

WE CANNOT FIND IT THERE TO PUT

THIS THING OVER WITH A REAL

BANG.

BANG.

AND HELP US MAKE THIS JUST THE
