The accepts Only those letters signed and reserves the right to edit and abbreviate same for purposes of clarity and space availability. Area in Brief editorial ten ways to kill any organization the following editorial comment on the ways to kill any organization was carried recently in the Melvin and Ocheyedan press. It s origin is Uncertain. The piece was carried in the Sutherland courier Many years ago but May have been taken from another publication at the time despite the fact that it was written in 1937, the Points made seem applicable today. The ways to kill any organization a .1. Don t come to the meetings. 2. If you do come come late. 3. If the weather does t suit you Don t think of coming. 4. If you attend find fault with the officers and other members. 5. Never accept an office it is easier to criticize than to do things. 6. Nevertheless get sore if you Are not appointed on a committee but if you Are never attend the meetings. 7. If asked for your opinion Tell him you have nothing to say until after the meeting then you can Tell everyone How it should have been done. 8. Do nothing that is absolutely necessary. When others Roll up their sleeves and get Busy holler that the organization is run by a clique. 9. Hold Back your dues As Long As possible or Don t pay them at All. 10. Don t bother about getting members. Letters to the editor if Era and Correct information to the editor Lack of Correct information is causing unnecessary fears about the proposed 27th amendment to the Constitution of the United states. The Era is a simple 24-word statement Equality of rights under the Law shall not be denied or abridged by the United states or by any state on account of by assuring Equality of Legal rights for both men and women it re affirms the principles of Freedom and Equality on which our country was founded. It is no More to be feared than the extremely controversial 19th amendment adopted in 1920, which gave women the right to vote or the civil rights acts of 1964 and 1968 which eliminated discrimination on account of race. Lois Siebersma i m not evil. I m not Pear editor i. In a letter to the editor in a recent Issue it your paper mrs. Marvin de Young implies that somehow i favor evil. 1 do not believe that is True. 1 am completely convinced that the Home and Christian family Are and must continue to be the Strong basis on which our total society is built. I am firmly committed to that position. We May differ on the effects of certain legislation but our goals Are the same. On the draft of women i Don t recall Ever saying i favored drafting women. 1 did say that there Are some aspects of such a draft that might be favourable. I do not favor women in combat but there Are a great Many jobs in today s army which can be done by women As Well As or better than by men. Examples might be jobs in the judge advocate s office quartermaster corps logistics truck and car driving ferrying aircraft Etc clerical work and food handling. If there was a heavy Drain on manpower As we had in world War ii it seems better to me to draft unmarried women for these jobs rather than to take fathers away from their families. I d prefer to keep the family together. Ii on the criminal code it is True that until the adoption of the criminal code men who abandoned their family were guilty of a felony. The criminal code leaves them still guilty of a felony but it says parents instead of men. Therefore women who abandon their family Are also guilty of the same crime. It seems to me that a woman who Abandons v her responsibility of cafe and nurture for the family is As much to blame As the father who Abandons his responsibility of financial support. Therefore the criminal code makes either one guilty of the same crime if either Abandons the family. I a i Trust this helps clarify my position. \ sincerely Lucas j.
