The last few weeks have been the busie.st in the annals of the A.C.W.L.A. What with the exhibitions and the conventions, and doings in other parts of the country we have been kept on the jump. It makes us feel good to see how well things are rounding into shape. It gives us lots of pep to swing into the winter season, which is now at hand. At the national convention, which took place in Philadelphia on the afternoon of the fourth of September, many changes were made to the betterment of the Association and the weight-lifter in general. President Jowett took the chair, and the notes of the meeting were taken down by acting Secretary E. Allen, assisted by G. Craig.
