Dunham, Ex Vice-Pres.) v Last week the writer called the read- Trego, loyal and sincere though some-'ra attention to some necsssnry' changes in our coiytitutlon, and In-1 timated .that he would discuss the rea-'ons in a later Issue. Owing to the,unsatisfactory division of the Province as adopted by the U. F, A., the .possibility ot local gatherings in the form ot District/.Conven tions is reduced to the minimum. This applies to almost every district. Take ' your map aj)d look at the Bow River, Medicine Hat or the Macleod constituencies. Indeed it is easier for the members ot some ot these Constituencies to get together at a point outside the constituency such as Lelhbrldge � or Calgary^than within its own.bord-ers. As a result tifare can' be no prao- . tlcal cooperation of the locals of thes'o different constituencies except in the Keueral conventloa. This certainly Is fimdamenfally wrong. If the objects of our organization are to become effective the locals of the different paKs 'of the province must" co-operate together, not only in commercial, dealings but in other matters looking taIplea,�6f jlhe organlzatiori and- with 'more"practical judgment than Hall: Donahue and Sloane are both able dlre.ctor�; .Snencer,.young, enthusiastic, someCinifes requiring a little curbing but usually right; Blore, alwa.vs dn the Job no matter how difficult Is the task, and readv to follow his superiors ..with utmost enthusiasm; and Jim Miner, sometime' a little radical but with a world'of; practical sense, and aubmlsslve to; the opinion of the 1 majority. It Is,not necessary for me.Jo mention the two e'lceUent ladles, Jlrs. Spencer and Mrs. Barrett, as we could not do them justice. Of all the Boards of the past this board accomplished the most good and , made the fewest mistakes. Let's see j -what happened to them. Of theexecu-J tive.
