HE WILL RESIGN
Fargo, N. D A. C. Townley an
nounced that he would present his
resignation as president of the Na
tional Non Partisan league to tiie state
meeting of the Minnesota organization
In Minneapolis March 31.
This resignation must be submitted
to the national committee and its re
jection would constitute a vote of con
fidence. This situation is similar lo
that of two years ago, when Mr. Town
ley refused to accept re-election by
the national committee until it had
been confirmed ii a referendum by
the league membership.
Mr. Townley, the recognized "father
of the Non-Partisan league movement," j
started the organization in North Da-!
kota in 1915 and has been active in
extending its ramifications to the
other states. Recently he has met
with considerable opposition in his
attempts to swing the league senti
ment to his proposed "balance of
power" in state politics. The plan i
called for elimination of the strictly!
league ticket and substitution of in-.
dorsing of individual candidates, re
gardless of party affiliations.
