"I always like to talk about businessmen,” he. declared, "because they are the uncrowned kings of this land. ’ The speaker described a Chamber of Commerce as people working together in teamwork to build a city. "A Chamber of Commerce is a demostration in action; it is a vehicle we can all ride together. A Chamber is teamwork by agreement. Only those who care and do something about it build. There are many who care, but not all are doing something about it.” Throgmorton reminded made this country but man made the cities. We have to have cities and we get them through teamwork — which is an association of those in commerce, the Chamber of Commerce.” The speaker brought home a telling point when he, declared. ‘‘America is more than a democracy. It is a ‘merit-ocracy we rise and shine by our own merit.” "Let’s keep America great, let's go down and join the Chamber of Commerce and tell Dick Knight we are ready to Join and go to work. Yes.
