for conslderin the different ideas

; Them' seems a general opinion that
re-organization should follow along
plans entirely different from those
now ooerative. Several names were
selected for. president but no dacls
iott was reached end no vote was tak
en. This was due to the new order
for adopting different plans, it being
apparent that any man "accepting th
presidency should ' first understand
what he was to do and what would
be expected of him. '
