WILLIS-LEAVES THE Y. M. C. A.
Omaha General Secretary' Resigns to
Accept Like Position la Mass
achaaetts. F. la. Willis, general secretary of the
Toung Men's Christian association, has re
signed. He goes to assume similar duties
In Worcester, Mass., remaining here until
May 1 If necessary. The resignation waa
handed In last night at the regular monthly
meeting of the board of directors and was
a complete surprise to most of them. The
executive committee had notice before,, but
nothing had been said until Mr.' Willis had
made up his mind to' accept the call of
tbe eastern association.' A committee of
five was appointed to search for a successor
to Mr. Willis. The five are Isaac Carpen
ter J. ft.' Pumorjt. Oeorgft Gtlmore, T, T.
Bturgess and A. -P.. Tk7. ' . '
Mr. Willis, while In Portland. Ore., a
month ago, was first approached In regard
to the Worcester association. lie went
east last week and stayed three daya and
aa a result was unanimously called. The
association there Is not up to date and
Mr. Willis mapped out an active campaign
with which, the directors were pleased.
His principal reason for going to Worcester
Is the excellent - educational advantages
which It promises for his son and daughter,
who have finished the high school course.
The work is also an inducement and there
la an additional $500 In emoluments.
"Mr. Willis has been general secretary of
the Omaha association for six years," said
one of the directors, "and during that time
we have had a steady and rapid advance
ment along all lines. He was recognized
aa the foremost Toung Men's Christian as
sociation man in the state In fact, one, of
the most prominent In the. west. . We are
very sorry to receive his resignation and
do not know where we shall be able to find
a successor who will In any wsy take his
place; but still we felt that we should re
lease him, and we did. He wishes to go as
soon aa a new secretary has been secured."
