It was the pleasure of the members and visitors to enjoy a talk upon the subject (,f highways by an outstand- inc~ engineer, Mr. Verne T. Bunker, who explained in a general way some of the difficulties experienced in the h~cation anti construction of highways in rough and broken country, such as evidenced on Santa Catalina Island.
