the 'resignation of A. L. I'.uniett, foi--n;ei'
s-ecretary of the association, was
placed in the hands of the hoard, the
cognation of Mr. Franks followed.
Since then, Mr. Franks has concluded
that he would like to have; his resi.t
r.iition reconsidered and started a
movement towards iliat end. Numer
als petitions were circulated among
lie business men and professional men
of the city, and a long list was handed
into the board asking that Mr. Franks
be returned. It was felt by the board,'
however, that the best interests of the
institution demanded that Mr.' Franks
as well as Mr Burnett cease to be as
sociated with it and accordingly afier
i long discussion, the board decided
that the resignation which Mr. Franks
had given to President G. C. Ulakslee,
;e accepted and this was done, whicii
rnakes it-certain that a new. 'physical
director will he secured to work with
ihe new secretary, Mr. Smedley ?f

ne of next month. A hoys' secreia.y

institution and an effort will be made
': make the association take the pla;;e

to hold. "

The trouble which led to the resig
nation of both A. L. Burnett and Harry
Flanks has been of long standing and
was caused by personal differences be-
vcen the two men. Their policies dif
fered and on things which made it im
possible for them to work together 'n
harmony. Both of them are valuable
:con in the work which the association
arrios on and either will be of great
'.id in buildj
ilding up whatever associatioii

'tas made quite a name, for himself in
the physical department here and
iaced it on such a' firm basis and n j
tich good standing that he made .10 -nd
of friends. He has several offers
'rom other associations . in the sta'e '
nd it is very likely that he will accept.
