The constitution and by-laws drafted by a committee headed by David Hamilton was adopted. Mr. Hamilton was elected the first president of the association but he positively declined to serve and Edith C. Warren was elected president. Other officers were: vice-president, Mrs. Edmund Langley; secretary, Mrs. Nellie White; treasurer, Leroy Hamilton. The election of six committee chairmen, who with the preceding officers make up the executive committee, was postponed until next Tuesday night, which will be the first regular meeting of the association. All parents are urged to be present at this time and extend a helping hand to a movement that will do much for our children in promoting closer working relations between teachers and parents. Twenty-seven signed the constitution last night, there should be one hundred more next week. Radio News
