Two Co-op Directors Quit Board WJLLIAMSFIELD - Further developments were shrouded today in the crisis of the Williams* field Farmers Cooperative Association, following the resignations of two board members Friday night. Unwillingness to divulge information has resulted in Vague and conflicting statements. Jay West of Victoria, who had served on the board of directors a number of years, and Lester B. Potts of Williamsflcld, who served four years, announced their" unexpected resignations Friday night. Potts gave no reason for his resignation, and West was reported in Peoria today and unavailable for comment. Appointed by the three remaining board members to fill the vacancies were Willard Carroll and Raymond Martzluf. Carroll and Martzluf were defeated in a bid for election to the board at the shareholders' annual meeting on June 18. The resignations followed the board's dismissal of Tom Cox of Monmouth as co-op manager Thursday night, and the re-hiring of Warren "Tim" Doubet of Williamsfield. Doubet had been released in February by the old board for alleged mismanagement. Friday morning following Doubet's return as manager, shareholders and townsmen seemed to be rallying behind the new management. There have since been strong denials to this, labeling it "propaganda." But the persons who made these statements have been unwilling to reveal details or permit use of their names. Financial Trouble Reported Other board members also were not available for comment. William Ott newly elected board member was reported in Peoria on matters concerning the co-op. There have been accusations of improper activities on both sides but again no specific charges have resulted. At the annual meeting it was revealed the co-op is in a critical financial situation and threatened with bankruptcy.
