meeting to investigate sites for a per

could pay as much as $20,000. The pres

they cramp the meetings, and a cam

money to maintain the home and in
crease the membership. It Is expected
that the committee will make Its first
report ftt an early data. ? number of
members and their families will attend
| the convention.
