Letter To The Editor To Whom It May Concern: There seems to be some misunderstanding concerning some of the views and opinions I've tried to bring to the the attention of citizens and taxpayers in the Community. I've heard some reports indirectly that some individuals thought I was out of order in my statements about teachers living in some of the units of the Titonka Housing Project and gave undue criticism to a group of civic minded businessmen who were promoting a project for the betterment of the Community. I fail to see anything in any statement I've made so far that could be construed as to my having any objections to teachers in these apartments or any other place they choose to reside in the Community. I do object to this group of so called civic minded businessmen whose civic mindedness, I believe, is directed more to wards their own financial benefit than Community betterment and I think most other citizens and taxpayers believe the same. I don't believe there's a resident in these apartments that didn't receive their elementary high school education at the expense of taxpayers unless it would be with the exception of some attending parochial schools and since their parents, friends and neighbors sacrificed and worked to give them an education, it's no more than simple justice that they should feel obligated to help educate the next generation of youngsters. I had a cousin make a very apt comment about .those who try to shift their share of taxes etc. on others as "freeloaders on society" and we already have far too many of them. I think the last letter to the editor by Supt. Wilbeck was very appropriate and very well expressed. We are all guilty of rudeness, discourtesy and impoliteness at times; perhaps without thinking and a bit of criticism shouldn',t. hurt any of us. Had one party tell me that some of the spectators at the football game the other evening were somewhat disgusted with two teachers and some of the students standing in front of them on the bleachers and blocking their view of the game after they had bought tickets and not having ,the courtesy to sit down when requested to do so. One can see •why there are rude adults; they start training for it while young. I Aold this individual to write a letter to the Editor, but as they have children in school, were afraid the children might be picked on. Some of the students might be guilty of such actions, but I'd hate to think any teacher would do so. If anyone feels I'm wrong in my viewpoints and opinions 'I'd like to see them make a few comments in the local paper for the enlightenment of the general public rather than "mumbling and grumbling" to themselves. /s/ Orlo E.
