CROSS-REFERENCE INDEX Between Article Names and Numbers of Foregoing

Redraft of Charter and Those of Original United States Suggested Charter NOTE: An effort has been made to indicate which articles of the United States Suggested Charter cover the general subject matter dealt with in the articles of the Redraft. In a majority of cases the subject matter of articles in the Suggested Charter is the same, or substantially the same, as that of articles in the Redraft, even though its treatment might be somewhat different; in such cases crossreferences are precise. In some cases the cross-references are only approximate.
