The Board of Directors on Wed
ni'iul: y ni;;ht decided to make the
reorganisation complete from the
'rround u;, a, id as a result they have
ordered rent out to the entire mem
bership the referendum produced
below. The referendum method of
election is the most satisfactory way
of conducting such n matier in the
oxne.ienee of numerous organiza
tions iii different sections of the
.'ountry:
"The Chamber of Commerce in
its re-creation is makln,; a clean
slate and starting anev in pvery
Way. On Tue'xlny, October aCtli, at
7;3p o'clock in the city hull a me-t-ing
of the entire membership will be
new constitution and by-laws for the
lepartment plan of organization and
to elect a new board of directors.
"Carefully consider all available
material in Columbus, and then fill
out below with the names of the men
who are your choice to hold the re-
pective positions in the new Cham
ber of Commerce. Remember that
the Chamber has a serious work
ahead of it. Also remember that a
genial fellow," or a "good mixer"
will not necessarily make an effic
ient president or a competent de
partment head. The Chamber of
Commerce should select men to re
sponsible positions because of their
fitness and aptitude.
"The three highest mentioned by
the referendums will be placed in
nomination the night of the meet
ing, one of the three to be elected
for each position. The referendum
gives you an opportunity to use your
voice.
1. For President; 2. for Vice-
President; 3. for Director of Organ
ization Affairs;. 4. for Director of
Retail Affairs; 5. for Director of
Public Affairs"1, 6. for Director of
Agricultural Affairs; 7. for Directoi
of Business Affairs; 8. for Director
at Large; 9. for Director at Large;
10. for Director at Large.
"It is important that this referen
dum be returned, filled out, not la
ter than 5 o'clock Tuesday evening
October 26th. It is your duty as a
member of the Chamber of Com
merce to use this referendum."
The officers and directors are very
anxious that a full attendance be had
at the meeting on Tuesday night. In
addition to the election of officers
at this meeting will be read and
adopted the program of work for
the organization for the ensuing yer.r.
This program is being built on sug
gestions of the entire membership as
a result of a referendum that lias
been circulated among the members:
Referendum 1.
You are invited to carefully con
sider the three questions following
