TALLAHASSEE, April 21.—(A.P.)—An unheralded trip of members of the state drainage board to Thomasville, Ga., remained unexplained at the capitol tonight after they had returned.
The board, including those members living in the Everglades drainage district, met this morning, for its monthly session. After discussing financial matters a short time an executive session was called. It lasted only a few moments, after which the board members left for Thomasville.
Advices from Thomasville said the board had met in a private room of a hotel there. Thomasville newspapermen said M.H. Rorick and his secretary, J.R. Easton, of Toledo, Ohio, had attended the meeting. Rorick is connected with Spitzer-Rorick & Co. of Toledo, holders of a large amount Everglades drainage district bonds.
