in Grand Rapids Friday.
At that time the committee will fix
the time and place for the spring con-
vention that will select the 33 delegates1
to the national convention at Cleve-
land in June.
As yet there is no definite indica-I
tion of the committee taking such'
action, but it is being talked over by
various members. In several states thej
republican state committees have re-
gently indorsed the Coolidge admin-
istration. Such a move is considered
tantamount to indorsing President
Coolidge for renomination.
Fred W. Green, of Ionia; chairman
of the republican state central com-
-mittee, writes that there is no founda-
tion for the reports that he is backing'
both Governor Albert E. Sleeper for
United States Senator and Herbert F
Baker for Governor. Says Mr. Green:
