THE DETROIT SESSION
Boat Trips to the Convention City
The local Committee on Arrangements calls the attention of the Fellows of the Association to the delights of a boat trip to Detroit. It is suggested that other cities follow the example of Chicago and charter passenger boats for a lake trip to Detroit, retaining the boats in Detroit as floating hotels during the meeting. It has been done on previous occasions in that city, and has helped out hotels in somewhat relieving congestion.While the hotels of Detroit have ample accommodations for large meetings such as that of the American Medical Association, the advance reservations have poured in so rapidly that in order to insure every one satisfactory accommodations, the local committee recommends that those who enjoy a boat trip shall come to Detroit by boat and occupy their staterooms during the meeting.
