The Lighter Side— Men Named Fink Plan Observance By DICK WEST WASHINGTON (UPI) — It is always nice to have something to look forward to, so I thought I should remind you that National Fink Week is coming up June 20-26. The observance is deing sponsored by the Fair Play for Finks Committee of Davison, Mich., a nonprofit organization dedicated to stamping out fink- manship where it appears. At this point, I,am pleased to turn the platform over to the committee's distinguished chairman, Herschel P. Fink, a newspaperman himself, who will explain the background and goals of the campaign. "Our purpose is to restore dignity to the honorable surname of Fink. We have long been appalled by the widespread •misuse of this fine name in the various media and by the general public. 11 Alarming Trend "We of the committee view this trend with alarm. Fink Week was established this year to remind persons who misuse the name that this is unfair and inaccurate. "Finkmanship, which is the use of the word in its non- capitalized, or small 'f,' form, grew out of a misnomer. "The term was originally 'pink,' a contraction of Pinkar- ton, and referred to strikebreakers recruited by the detective agency. "Evidently, there were a number of immigrant strikers who either could not pronounce the letter 'P' or misunderstood what was said. "Fink is meant only to be a proper noun and surname and it is never a verb. Alert Writers "One aim of the committee is to alert writers of their errors whenever the name is used incorrectly in print or on the air. The committee urges its members to writer letters of protest if injustice is observed. $508,000 LOAN WASHINGTON (UPI) — A loan of $508,000 to Taylor University in Indiana for construction of a science building was announced Friday by the Office of Education. Officials said the cost of the project will be almost $1,250,000. "There are no membership dues or cards. All that is needed to join is to be a Fink."" Well said, Mr. Chairman. I'm sure that everyone, including non-Finks, will want to do their part to make Fink Week a success. Perhaps the committee could be persuaded to designate others who participate as "Honorary Finks." The committee also might consider having members and sympathizers picket the White House during Fink Week. They could carry signs with appropriate slogans, like "Think Fink!" Or, better yet, "Buy A Fink A Drink." The Almanac (United Press International) Today is Saturday, June 12, the 163rd day of 1965 with 202 to follow. The moon is approaching its full phase. The morning star is Saturn. The evening stars are Venus and Mars. American author Frank Chapman was born on this day in 1864.
