He ~.vOuld soon discover the weakness and strength of the different ofticog he ha^ undertaken .to work into a force that will interpret In the best sense all th^t Union government reiir^ents In a. practical way.

For instance, I recall attending a banquet ot one of the ISadlng chambers of commerce organleations of the west a year ago when I was over this trail. There wej-e..perhan^ 500 representative business i men from four' slates present. 3'he British cousular agent waa thera and was roundly applauded .when he l.spoke.  I was keenly disappointed when 1 discovered" the business rejire-iientative of the Dominion of Canada was not present, . The next day I called Specially on the president and cas&illy asked why the omisSlon. He was very frank. He said that the Dominion's f representative had not been invited during his term a^president--he had served nine months.: He had>J)'een informed however that his predecessors had invited him ..frequently to thb;aijnual gatherings of the organization and he,had ne-rer accepted.
