consentea to accept tne presidency
for the sixth time, that he could not
serve the association in that capaci
ty beyond the-expiration of the pres
ent year. MV; Search has recently
made known his adherence to this
determination, and one of the most
interesting problems which the com
ing convention will iiave to consid
er is the selection of,a newpresident.
This matter has '.been i-dis'cussed quiet
ly iamongr the. members for several
months, but at present ihere is
nothing to indicate upon whom the
choice i oY the ' association "will fall.
