speaks a- word of cautlon. Under the cap
tion, "Premature Local Optlon Elec?
tlons," lt says ln part: ,
. "Some of our frlends are preparlng to
hold local optlon electlons wlthout or?
ganization. tt'e foel that a word of coun

"Do not hold q local optlon electlon now

This "word of counscl" from the league
ls partlcularly lnterestlng, In vlbw of the
