Report of Chairman of the Congressional Committee

In the beginning of last December, a Chairman was appointed by the President of the E.S.L. of VA for the conduct of congressional matters in the State of Virginia. I was honored by that commission. I endeavored as soon as possible to appoint a District Chairman for each Congressional District in the State. Those efforts have, so far, not been entirely successful since all the districts are not yet organized, but such officers as have accepted the trust have been efficient and loyal, through working under very hampering conditions. They are: I Dist. Ilene Robinson, Washington, D.C. [crossed out Mrs.Taylor Burke Alexandria] II " Mrs. Charles E Townsend Norfolk III " Mrs. G. Harvey Clarke Richmond IV " Mrs. Roberta Large Farmville V. --- VI " Mrs J H Whitner Roanoke VII " Miss Roberta Wellford Charlottesville VIII " Mrs. Taylor Burke Alexandria [crossed out Mrs. Richard Hilliary Warrenton] IX " Miss Eugenia Bumgardner Big Stone Gap X " Mrs. W.
