Daily Gazette (Newspaper) - May 11, 1968, Xenia, Ohio As others see it Dearest mama mine editor Dearest mama mine it took a Heap of working in our House to make it Home a Heap of Lively stepping til some times we d hear her groan. But before she d tackle All the jobs that would loom be fore her eyes like dispatch the dust and ashes before she d bake the pies. It took a Heap of toiling just to keep the pot a boiling to feed us hungry youngsters for we were always empty to our toes. There was a Heap of wants aled and treated As an inferior by the principal of the school who is White. I have been treated As a child when in fact i am a woman. 1 have suffered Many embarrassments As the principal attempted to cover up Tor the Many wrong doings of a White teacher. As a result of these wrong doings by this teacher i received All the repercussions and was requested by the principal of Transfer to another school her excuse being that i could not get along with this particular teacher. She had to attend a Heap bumps she had to mend of of kissing hurts to make them Well and listening to our childhood woes. But every pleasure has its Price on this terrestrial sphere and it s the care she brought us that makes her so near and dear. So when All is said and finished and considering every thing she Means More to All of us than a Palace or a King. So if kids would think in such a Short time they would look Back and proudly say Dearest mama mine. Mrs. Raymond Griffith route Cedarville. People rights editor it s Small wonder so Many people Are seeking to function outside of and rebelling against the establishment. On the saturday before easter the writer lost a License plate 1968, on a trip to Cam Bridge. There the Deputy registrar stated we should proceed on Home and write to Columbus for a duplicate. When the state patrol Posl was notified of this loss they said Good a Green form was executed the registration paper enclosed along with ?1.50, and sent out by mail of or about april 16. Nothing has happened. Two let ters Haye been sent As. Follow . The local Deputy Charity setup has refused to the state patrol female voice at the Xenia Post had Only to Sug Gest we go up in person or Call on the phone. But we cannot use the now How does one proc e e d sans an attorney Why should one need one the establishment fails too frequently. No wonder groups take arms and stage sit ins etc., Elc. Whenever we begin to see people As human beings with from observation i see thai his Leacher is doing nothing to create a Good self image in hese White teachers Are getting away with the same thing. I have also been accused of caching Blaek Power. If leading Black children the truth about their heritage can b e construed As Black Power then i m leaching Black pow the boy who went Home and old his parents i was teaching Black Power did so because i spent a whole half Day talk no about or. Martin Lut he r b. Ray principal Spring Hill school Xenia. Heritage and proceeded to Plain Why. Whereupon i signed reports on such famous Slack people As or. Ralph Bunche Fredrick Douglas mar Ian Anderson Paul Lawrence Dunbar and George Washington Carver. We discussed these peo ple in detail. I explained the importance of Black people stick ing together and that above All they had to get a Good Educa p Tion. I told them to talk tall and think Lall and that to be Black is to be Beautiful. Parents should in fact Settle Down from their emotions in depth Anc understand the difficult philosophical connotations of w h Ai Black Power Means and adopt the one of Pride. Also it was alleged in Xenia and Dayton Laught the pupils a act. Truer words were never spoken. The White Man has exploited the Black Man for a Long time iut it s time we All woke up. Rue educators should be con evened with the education o 11 children no Mailer Olor they Are but someone must look out for our Black Hildren. I can understand How he children at Highview fee when they walk up to the office and see thai everyone working herein is White. This shows hem that Only while people Are of running things am making rules for them to follow then they walk Down the Hal and see three Black janitors who work in menial and then they go Home and see Lack parents who Are soil iving As second class citizens that is this doing for their image there Are Many educators in the Dayton school system who Are both capable and dedicated of the principle of a compleat education for All children Thi includes Black children i am one of those teachers. Mrs. Gretchen e Garland 845 Tremont re.

Xenia s municipal income tax has been All the cily employees went on an indefinite strike at the same time who would put out the sires who would run City Hall who would give us police in half and the margin was sufficient to convince me the general intent was exhibited that the wording on the ballot May have confused some but not maybe the citizens who opposed the 1 per cent income j tax would take care of these Many.
