Motions and Resolutions.

Mr. Bohn offered the following: Senate concurrent resolution No. 9. A concurrent resolution petitioning the Republican State Central Committee. We learn with great regret that Dennis E. Alward after more than thirty years service as secretary of the Republican State Central Committee has been displaced by the new State Central Committee elected at the Republican State Convention last week.

We know that throughout all that time Mr. Alward has given his service without compensation and without stint. He has been faithful and loyal to a party which he loves and believes in.

We know Mr. Alward to be the highest type of loyal Christian gentleman, the type which we would be glad to see more generally active in the politics of state and nation. Always efficient to the last degree and yet always clean, unpartisan, able, Mr. Alward has been a source of real pride and of congratulation to the Republican party.

We believe that a mistake has been made which will seriously affect the fortunes of the Republican party hereafter. A just indignation has been aroused throughout Michigan and we join in expressing our indignation at the action of the new state central committee; therefore be it

Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), That we urge upon the Republican State Central committee the advisability of quickly correcting the error made last week; that we urge that committee to quickly reassemble to reconsider its action, and that it restore Mr. Alward to the place which for so many years he has held with honor to himself and to the Republican party; and be it further

Resolved, That a copy of these resolutions be sent to the chairman of the Republican State Central Committee and each member and be spread at large upon the Journals of the Senate and House.

Mr. Bohn moved that the rule that the resolution lie over one day be suspended.

The motion prevailed.
The resolution was unanimously adopted.

General Orders.

Mr. Martin moved that the Senate resolve itself into Committee of the whole for consideration of the general orders.

The motion prevailed and the President designated Mr. Martin as chairman.

Accordingly the Senate resolved itself into Committee of the Whole, with Mr. Martin in the chair.

After some time spent therein the committee rose; and, the President having resumed the chair, the committee, through its chairman, reported back to the Senate, favorably and without amendment, the following entitled bill:

Senate bill No. 82 (file No. 45), entitled

A bill to amend sections 5, 6, 7 and 9 of Act No. 146 of the Public Acts of 1909, entitled "An act to prohibit and prevent adulteration, misbranding, fraud and deception in the manufacture and sale of drugs and drug products in the State of Michigan and to provide for the enforcement thereof," being sections 6525, 6526, 6527 and 6529 of the Compiled Laws of 1915.

The bill was placed on the order of Third Reading of Bills.

Mr. Quinlan moved that the Senate adjourn.
The motion prevailed.

The President declared the Senate adjourned until tomorrow Tuesday, March 3, 1925, at 2:00 o'clock p. m.

DENNIS E. ALWARD,

Secretary of the Senate.
