THE TITONKA TOPIC, TTTONKA, IOWA, OCTOBER 31, 1974 Letter To The Editor "mumbling and grumbling" to themselves. /s/ Orlo E. Zwiefel 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 lor the betterment, of the Community. I fail to see anything in any statement I've made so far that could toe 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 resi dent 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 ithose 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 eve ning 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 re quested to do so. One can see why there are rude adults; they start training for it while young. I ,told this individual to write a letter to the Editor, but as they have children in school were afraid the children migh be picked on. Some of the stu dents might be guilty of such actions, but I'd hate to thin! any teacher would do so. If anyone feels I'm wrong in my viewpoints and opinions •I'd like to see them make few comments in the loca paper for the enlightenment o the general public rather thar Portland News By Mrs. Victor Fitch Mr. and Mrs. Phillip Gwinell of Omaha, Nebr. were recent visitors in the Glenn Larsen home.

Jim WILEY MAYNE • , COMMIT YEf ,*DAW HOLMES, CHAIRMAN A 30 Second Message . . . The County Treasurer appointed his wife as an employee to be paid out of public funds. If elected, I pledge to.put an end to the practice of appointing family members as employees in the Treasurer's office. I feel that a county officer should work fpr the county, and only the county during office hours. I do not think the County Treasurer should invest the taxpayer's money for less than the highest interest rate available in qualified securities. Last month, yields of over 9% were available in U]nited States Treasury Bills maturing within 30 days. I think that the taxpayers whether Democrat, Republican or Independent, deserve more for their money than they have been getting. I believe in equal pay for equal work ana, responsibility. If elected, my business experience can result in greater efficiency.
