Chairman Cecil Andrew Lyon of the Texas Republican Committee
feels that the department erred with its recent post office
appointment at Denison as it dealt the party a very severe blow in
the state. Pressing business will keep Lyon from being in
Washington, D.C., until the 12th or 15th of June. He asks that if
any Texas appointments are to be considered contrary to his
recommendations, these appointments be deferred until he has the
opportunity to voice his concerns and opinions.
