Taking the year as a whole, I
feel that the Chamber, i n its
growth, development and accom
plishments, has nothing for which
it need be ashamed. It has made
a good start. It is no longer a
small organization, howevnr, and
must in the future accept larger
responsibilities to be thrust upon
it. It must be progressive and ag
gressive, but at the same time it
must at nil times and under all
circumstances be right. That is
the keynote, In looking back over
the twelve months now behind us,

cover the answers to these ques

the very greatest reasons for the

Personally, I wish to congratu

history as an organization. The
development of the Chamber has
been due to your individual and
united efforts, and I take this oc
