John Taylor, who ' was spokesman for the- local state com mittee men, explained that it was the choice of the local state committee members, that Mr, Melius be made the chairman. The meeting thereupon heartily endorsed this choice and Mr. Melius became the town chairman'at once. Noble E. Vincent was made upon suggestion of the state committee, a deputy chairman and he will be the working head, having arranged so that he cap give practically , all his time to the movement and particu larly the office work. Aside from deciding on the town chairmanship the workers discussed the questioij of district chairmen. A tentative list of names for chairmen in six of the 12 districts was con sidered for the chairmansips in the remaining districts . were , offered to Chairman Melius. ."Chairman Melius expeets to be able to announce the district chairmen before the middle of next week.
