 +===== Editorial - The Annual Report. ​=====
  
 To the casual reader one Annual Report is like another, but to the connoisseur each has its distinctive flavour and lingering aroma. The 1947 report was distinctly sour. It dealt mainly with the things that weren'​t done. The 1948 report had a fairly pleasant flavour, but lacked maturity. Much had been attempted, but not everything had been done. But the 1949 report is a banquet which stimulates the palate with a succession of courses bitter and sweet, hot and cold, smooth and rough; from soup to nuts. To the casual reader one Annual Report is like another, but to the connoisseur each has its distinctive flavour and lingering aroma.

 After this the flavours are a little flat. There was not enough support for the photographic section. The trees planted at Era nearly all died. Yes, we have had just about enough. Conservation is heavy going - full of fatty indigestible words. And when we read that our delegates to the Federation "have opposed the use of fire-arms by members of affiliated Clubs",​ and the practice of "​bushcraft"​ and have urged the "​responsibility of Clubs for the actions of their members",​ we think back to the great dais of Garrawarra and are full right up to the neck. After this the flavours are a little flat.

-Now are we resigned to Dr. Hardie'​s medicine. Nasty potions must atone for succulent feasts. We turn the page and our apprehensions rise. We spent 72 on social activities and it must have come from somewhere. But what is this? - "​Excess of income over expenditure 11!" No medicine but soothing syrup!
