Caravan and Mass Meeting In Carroll October 17

The Young Republican Club of Carroll County was reorganized and new officers were elected at a meeting held last Thursday night at Republican Headquarters. Main and Carroll Streets, Westminster. The meeting was attended by representatives of the various districts in the county, and was presided over by Stanley Tevis, chairman. Donald E. Six, Middleburg, chairman of the nominating committee, presented the following slate of officers which was unanimously adopted: Chairman, Stanley King, Taneytown; first vice chairman, Miss Ellen Arnold, Westminster; second vice chairman, Ralph Baumgardner, Westminster; secretary, Mrs. Gene Royer, Westminster; and treasurer, Joseph Hahn, Jr.

Activities of the Young Republicans Club of Baltimore County were described by the chairman of that group, Ray Clarke. Mr. Clarke is also campaign treasurer for General James P. Devereuz, candidate for Congress from the Second Congressional District. Mrs. Clarke accompanied her husband to the meeting.

The highlight of the evening was a talk by General Devereux, who explained the importance of the remaining registration days, and also gave factual information concerning his reasons for being a candidate for public office.

Urges Ober Bill Support

Mr. Tevis then spoke concerning the Ober Bill, which was passed by the State Legislature, and which will appear on the ballot. He requested that all Republicans vote for adoption of the bill, which would make it unlawful to be a participant in any organization whose intent it would be to overthrow forcibly the United States Government.

Stanford I. Hoff, Chairman of the State Central Committee for Maryland, spoke concerning the work which the Young Republicans might do. Sherman E. Flanagan, chairman of the State Central Committee for Carroll County, also brought greetings to the group, and invited all Young Republicans to participate in the County-wide tour of the candidates which will be held on Tuesday, October 17. The caravan will leave Westminster at 8:30 A. M., and is scheduled to be in Sykesville at 11:10 A. M. At night there will be a mass meeting at the armory in Westminster.
