Why be bored, depressed, morose,
When Kittens can supply the dose,
Which makes the oldest people scoff,
At glands advised by Voronoff I

THE SEVEN SEAS
CLUB, whose members are singing these Shanties tonight, was founded in 1922 by four old Conway boys, whose years spent in the ship covered the long period from 1878 until 1911. All four had served with distinction in the Great War. The Club very quickly became a popular rendezvous for officers and ex-officers of the Sea Services, and the membership is now nearly 1,000, all ranks, from Admirals downwards, being represented. Many of the members served at one time in sailing ships, where, of course, the sea shanty had its birth, so. that listeners can hear them sung this evening with an absolute fidelity to the old traditions; at the annual dinner, sea shanties are always a feature of the evening's festivity.
The club publishes its own book of Sea Shanties, under its own name-' The Seven Seas Shanty Book.'
