once go into session and elect the officers of the organization. This was done
with the below results:

     Mr. C. L. Garwood Temporary Secretary, with the understanding that he would
be relieved by a full time secretary at the first possible moment.This will no
doubt be done in the very near future,as the board now has a desirable man in
     It only requires one dollar to become a member of the Crisp County Chamber
of Commerce and it is earnestly hoped that all citizens of Cordele and Crisp
County who feel an interest in the future prosperity of the city and county, and
who have not already done so, will go at once to the office of Secretary
Garwood, in the First National Bank Building, register and pay the dollar, as
immediate funds are necessary to the success of the organization./;
     Another mass meeting will be called by the Board of Governors at an early
date at which time all details of organization will be completed.
