71.. ..(Sotesbura .Rgfltfiter'Mpjj^.GgJesburQ, 111, Wednesday, June 13, 1973 arts: By MORT REJSO Any columii sevlng 606 of more newspapers In the United States would expect more than normal reader response to a controversial question of national importance, especially when it is relevant to the .currency in the reader's pock- Money Clips et. But public reaction to whether or not we should have six new coins for our Bicentennial is beginning to clog the slot in our mail box. NONE SUGGEST we should retain our present designs and some even demand that we dispose of one or two of the current devices in favor of renewing some that have long since been retired. Incidentally, there is no coinage law that prohibits taking a design out of retirement and putting it back into circulation. And after reviewing the pictorial structure of the cent, nickel, dime, quarter, half-dollar and dollar, I can concur. We have only been able to evaluate the ballots received from COIN WORLD readers since my weekly COINOLOGY panel provided ballots ready to be filled in and mailed. Readers of this column have been sending in their stamped self addressed envelopes for 8 U'lUKIM 1 !.' OPEN ADMISSION POLICY STATEMENT FOR: THE EVERGREENS SHELTERED CARE HOME It is the policy of The Evergreens to admit and to treat all persons without regard to race, color or national origin. The same requirements for admission are applied to all and patients are assigned within the home without regard to race, color or national origin. There is no distinction in eligibility for, or in the manner of provding any patient service provided by or through the home. All facilities of the home are available without distinction to all patients and visitors, regardless of race, color or national origin. All persons and organizations that have occasion either co refer patients for admission or recommend Tht Evergreens, are advised to do so without regard to the patient's race, color or national origin. DOROTHY D. HOLT, R.N. The Evergreens Owner their ballots and we will just have to wait for their return to see whether or not the collecting and non-collecting public agree. Should we have all new designs on our present coinage celebrating the American Revolution Bicentennial in 1976? THE SECOND PART of the question is equally important. It has been proposed by the numismatic industry through spokesmen from the industries newspapers and magazines that the Treasury also issue a Bicentennial gold piece and a Bicentennial silver commemorative coin, denominations to be other than any of the six we now have. This makes a total of eight coins. Six old denominations with new designs and two new of pure gold and silver. Mrs. Mary T. Brooks, director of the Mint, maintains this is an impossibility. According to Mrs. Brooks such a program would overload both the mint personnel and equipment to a point below required efficiency. She suggests removing the reverse of both the Kennedy half-dollar and the Eisenhower dollar and replacing them with a Bicentennial motif dated 17776-1976. The following is an open MEMO to Marry T. Brooks, Director, Bureau of the Mint. SUBJECT: Coinage Designs for 1976. SINCE YOU WILL be reading this article it occured to me to call your attention to the results of a slightly premature observation. From the ballots received to date, it looks as though the Indian- head (buffalo) nickel design is maintaining its popularity. As are Jefferson, Washington and Lincoln. Eisenhower and Kennedy, on the other hand, seem to be losing ground as appropriate Bicentennial devices. For your FREE BALLOT send a 10" business size envelope to Mort Reed, 1976 Coins, P.O.
