March 9, 1960 - Women's League leader bans talk by governor: Because Gov. Gaylord Nelson is "too close to political pressure" an invitation to him to address the Green Bay League of Women Voters has been withdrawn upon orders from the state league president in Milwaukee.
This was discussed Tuesday by Mrs. Norman Miller, president of the Green Bay group.
She admitted an invitation had been extended to the governor to address a local audience sometime in April.
The order to withdraw the invitation developed during a telephone conversation between Mrs. Miller and Mrs. Ralph Wenberg, Milwaukee, state president.
"I was rather excited about it," Mrs. Miller said, "and thought it rather nice that he could come."
It also was pointed out that a local chapter of the LWV cannot invite even the President of the United States without first receiving approval of the national board, and state officers must first have the approval of the state board.
