Thornton, who suggested that the
Chamber of Commerce might lend

This, Thornton explained would en

paid person to serve as Chamber
Thornton emphasized that the
appropriation would cover sal

Mr. Farrell in charge of the in
dustrial department will be able to
obtain the assistance of Mr. Boyd

respectively, and the three _ of
them working together would give
us a very nice set up.”
He pointed out that a lot of time
and money are required for con

adding that a man of experience
is needed to study the type of in
dustry the city needs.
