Reader Confused By Word 'Couple' Singular, Plural? I been reading your column and I gotta admit that you are smart almost all the time. In December a teacher argued with you about the word couple. The teacher said it is plural and you said couple is singular. Before I made this decision, I played around to and fro with these words. At first I agreed with you; then I agreed with the teacher. Now I don't agree with either of you. Constant Reader Pennsauken. Dear Constant: If couple is neither singular nor plural let us in on your secret what is it? ' Tell your boss he is a doll for letting us have this column to air our complaints. Until we had it, the little people of his circulation area had nowhere to turn. You sure hand it to the powers-that-be. You slam right into them. Do they ever slam back? My gripe is, give us more, more, more!. It isn't enough. Everlasting Fan Mount Holly. Dear Everlasting: Well, thanks. Do they slam back? Sure do. Sometimes it becomes a regular judo match via telephone. They pin our shoulders by 36th st., the Cooper River, the Delaware River and the railroad, including Ablett Village. One resident objected to including Ablett Village. He said, "We do not wish to take on their worries." But Hall explained Ablett Village residents attend schools and churches in Cramer Hill and should be included. The group concurred. Denies Implications Hall denied implications that the association was being formed to orevent certain eth nic groups from moving into the Cramer Hill section. He called for joint participation in the neighborhood association. The group, he said, is not to be taken over by the politically privileged or a biased cause. Some residents questioned the minister on the need for a neighborhood association. Rev. Salmon Speaks Rev. John T. Salmon of St Andrew's Episcopal Church, Lois st. and River ave., answered the residents. He said, "In the past, we had a solid degree of ethnic solidarity, such as a large German population. That solidarity has been diluted. We need to be concerned. "Dealing in complaints is only a small part of the problem," Father Salmon told a woman resident. Nominating and policy committees were appointed by Hall, who served as temporary chairman. Werner Agrees to Serve Assemblyman Werner, who has announced he'll be a mayoralty candidate, attended the meeting and agreed to serve on the policy committee. Werner, who lives at 822 N. 30th st., said he would decline running for office in the new association "for obvious reasons." The next meeting of the neighborhood association is March 1, in the former 11th Ward Republican Club, 28th st and Concord ave.
