Chappaqua DAR Chapter Urges National Resolutions Rule Change CHAPPAQUA— The Chappaqua chapter of the Daughters of the American Rev­ olution intends to continue its fight to \democratize\ the meth­ ods of the national society's reso­ lutions committee. At present, a self-perpetuating resolutions committee presents to the annual Continental Congress of the DAR, held every April in Washington, D.C., a set of reso­ lutions on national and interna­ tional affairs which represent solely the analysis, evaluation, and judgment of members of the committee. Mrs. Dennis Kent, regent of the Chappaqua chapter, last April presented on the floor a resolu­ tion that \The national society restore to the membership their rights of self-expression through their representatives with respect to their society's policies\ by submitting the annual group of resolutions to each chapter for its consideration, but before pre­ senting them at the annual meet­ ing. The resolution, presented on the convention floor only after a three-day struggle to be heard, was overwhelmingly rejected. Asks Policy Change The resolution entitled \Policy Change on Resolutions NSDAR\ was reaffirmed Nov. 13 by members of the Chappaqua chap­ ter at a meeting held at the home of Mrs. Robert A. Fele- gara of Florence Drive. With 20 members present, two voted against the resolution. Absentee ballots are being mailed to all members not present to give each an opportunity to vote.

Mrs. Kent voiced the chapter's concern over the present \one committee rule\ of the National Society, and declared that the resolution's return to the Nation­ al Society for further considera­ tion is the chapter's \only means of fighting this evil.\ The chapter also reaffirmed the resolution adopted last year charging its regent and delegate to abstain from voting on all resolutions which had not first been submitted to each chapter for consideration. On these grounds, the regent and delegate of the Chappaqua chapter also abstained from vot­ ing on the rseolutions presented in October at the New York State DAR meeting held at Lake Placid.

Using slides to illustrate her talk, Mrs. Whitford discussed the museum's increasing store of historical treasures as rare antiques continue to be donated, especially by DAR members.
