4. Although a few local members who are never
able to attend out-of-town meetings may be served
to some extent by the Divided Meetings, it is
believed that this service does not outweigh
the disadvantages which affect a large number
of members. In any event, the local members
are not being given the advantages of a full
national meeting and could just as well be served
by regional meetings.
5. The above facts will not be altered by any
accumulation of "statistics" which result from
the recent questionaire distributed by the
Society. It is firmly believed that the factors
pertaining to the desirability of full meetings
are of an intangible nature which do not lend
themselves to statistical analysis.
