The heads of the different divisions are listed here and the Director General considers it fitting to make acknowledgement to them and also to those other members of the staff whose loyalty and unselfish and enthusiastic cooperation were so largely responsible for the success of the celebration. It is also a pleasure to acknowledge the work done by Boyd Crawford, secretary to the Director General of the Commission, for his unstinted labors during the period of the celebration and especially in assisting in the preparation of this report.
COOPERATION WITH LOCAL ORGANIZATIONS
CONTACT was initiated and maintained with state commissions, county, city, and local committees, as well as with thousands of committees formed by civic, patriotic, and fraternal organizations. Every effort was made to provide specific data and helpful suggestions that would extend over the entire celebration period and make possible the cooperative activity of the many local commissions and committees, made up of public spirited men and women who gave freely of their time and ability in carrying out the projects of the national commission and also, supplementary to those of their own, spending the funds raised for this purpose through state or municipal appropriations or private contributions. Particular attention was paid to
the organization of the educational activities of the Commission, and constant touch was maintained with schools, officials, and religious and patriotic groups throughout the country. Much time was devoted by the education division to the fostering of essay and other contests in the schools. As chief of the education division, Miss Hazel B. Nielson maintained and supervised Constitution exhibits at the conventions held by the National Education Association and other educational organizations during the celebration period.
TO ENCOURAGE originality, the Commission followed a policy of outlining and suggesting, rather than one of direction, with the local committees organized in the different states. Informative material and helpful suggestions were issued in the form of information sheets, especially prepared for various groups. These information sheets, size 17" x 21", and printed on both sides, were distributed as phases of the celebration progressed. Following is a list of these sheets: Sheet No. 16.-Women's
