70 WISCONSIN CHEESE MAKERS' ASSOCIATION cuss or to vote on this question, shall the secretary's work be continued next year as it has in the past years in organizing and promoting their work in the branches, and the news letters, the legislative bills, and so on; it all goes together. We either do it or don't do it. If you vote to drop it, why that is all right. Whoever you elect for secre- tary, I presume, will do it if you vote for it. I am not discussing that. I am discussing your policy as to whether this association is big enough to keep one man at work at the thing all through the summer months. I think the first question you ought to discuss and answer is this one here printed in the program. Does this convention recommend that the system of organizing branches and attending monthly meet- ings when requested by makers, be continued, or shall it be dropped. AXnybody want to make a motion on that subject? MR. DmBuHa: Mr. Chairman, is there any field for organizing new branches? SECRzrARY SAMMIS: Well, yesterday Winnebago County asked whether they could get a branch, and other places need branches. But the work of the secretary is partly in organizing new branches where needed, and also to a great extent in promoting the work of branches which are in need of further help. The best ones don't need any help at alL They take care of themselves. But a lot of the rest '4 them are in fairly poor condition. Now, think about your branch and decide for yourselves w-'hether you would like to have visits from the secretary during the Coming year as you had them in the past year, and if you don't want them and don't need them, then vote no; if you want them continued, then vote yes. I would like to get your opinion because this work will not be carried on unless you positively say you want it done. The officers will not do things unless you say you want them done. We are not trying to put anything over on you. MR. DEBuHR: I am not going to make a motion; I am going to make a suggestion. When the resolutions come in, there is a resolu- tion relative to what Mr. Sammis spoke of. Now, I think we better wait with this question until these resolutions come up and probably this resolution will carry, and kill all this talk here. ADDRESS BY JOHN LEONARD Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen: I am just an ordinary fel- low away from home, and I think you all know how that is. I appre- ciate very much the honor that has been done me that you asked me to address this meeting, and I want to assure you that out in Califor- nia we have had a lot of similar meetings to yours today. We found in many of our industries out there that we had to get together to do
