HORGAN WEAVER RESIGNS VS PRESIDENT OF -5,000 ( LUB Ar a call meeting of the Board of Directors of the 25,000 club yesterday afternoon President Morgan Weaver banded in ids resignation. Very reluctantly and after a lengthy discussion the Board accepted the same. The position of the president of the 25,000 Club is one of the most responsible position in the city and owing to its importance the election of a successor to Mr. Weaver was deferred and a special committee wag appointed to canvass the situation and at a future 1 call meeting of the Board to nominate j the right man for this place. Mr. Weaver’s reasons for his resig- j nation w as due to increased amount of j personal and other business demand-, mg his constant attention. It is re- J ^retted very much that his business af- i fairs would noj allow him to continue I as president. However, he gives the assurance that he shall continue to show the same interest and active work in the business of the Club as has b»‘t*n his disposition heretofore. Mr. Weaver’s service in club work from the beginning of the club and especially bis work as president for the ! last two years bas been invaluable.
