This was decided upon at a fairly
well attended meeting last evening.
The name of the club has not been
determined, this being left to the
decision of the members atter they
haves perfected ,an organization.
F. J. Feenfiy presided as chajrman

I ney 'Graves and Dr. J. T. McCormac

Dr. Ji T. McCormac, president of
the Marshfleld Chamber of Com
merce, said that the uniting of the.
young men of Coos-Bay-into an or
ganized effort to promote the wel
fare of Coos Bay was something that
he and the other members of the
Chamber of Commerce had long de
sired. He said that it was a step
that meant much to Coos Bay. He
said that while the young men had
always been willing to assist the
Chamber of Commerce lnlts under
takings, there had never been a
united effort ons the!rf part. He said
that the members of the Chamber of
Commerce were the older business
men and that they felt that It was
tlirie that the younger men should
step In and takCj up some of the bur

I Commerce would give them every as
sistance possible and would be glad
ito turn the advancement work over
'to them whenever it was desired.
He said that the- Cljambe.xf Com

disposal of the young men.

and J. D. Goss spoke on the benefits
of an organized effort on the part ot
the young men. It was pointed out
that the new organization "would not
conflict in any way wltji the Chamber'
of Commerce but would widen that;
organization' field and assist In ac
complishing something for ttie gen-eral-good.
It is expected that at tonight's
meeting, various committees will
