Petitions to place the name of Roose

in circulation in the western part of the
state, and blank petition* for Immedi?

so many signatures to these petitions

that he will be forced to yield to their j

In a statement prepared by Frederick

was taken not to commit the party ah

was left for a ? hange in front m .ase
the Colonel should demand another
course of action on his return.
Privately, however, it was said that
the Progressive leaders had taken the
bit between the teeth Slid were deter?
mined that tii*- Progressive* should g?>

most sturdy in his opposition to having

Mr. Davenport sugg.ste.l an organ
