ernor Morehead, mayors of the different
cities of the state, or their representatives
will meet at the state house to organize
a state relief committee, which will han
dle all funds and other donations made
"rom out in the state. In many instances
people have not known where donations

which prompted the executive to make
the call for the meeting.
Governor Morehead would like to see
the formation of a committee with head

fast as a carload is complete it may be
sent to its destination.
