TO THE VAULT (Your Hebby - And Y6ur N«l§hb0f'») By Dick Palm»r The Belmond Collectors Club will host a coin show Sunday afternoon, June 20, at the Belmond high school Student Center, located in the northeast part of town. Doors will open to the public at 12:30. There will lie a dealers' bourse and many interesting exhibits with no admission charge. This may be the last area show before the fall season, so mark your claender. - o - There is still time to send a card for this column's anniversary number two drawing. My pre-trip columns will deal with some of the questions received, but one merits Immediate comment. Meg E. Schneider inquires about the fiscal and monetary policies of Tibetaji mon- estaries. It is tragic that such a weighty problem must burden one so young. 1, too, Meg, have been disturbed about this obvious gap In the education of our young people. Fortunately, the same nice Daddy that helped you write your card can come to our mutual aid for, as the major team Instructor in World History, he is ever alert to the many unexplored problems of far off lands which so vitally effect our destiny. This column will serve as a directive for an immediate research project and I am certain that by the time you reach the 10th grade, an appropriate lecture will be forthcoming. I do hope that I am around to hear it. I would observe, however, that since the Red Chinese are presently holding Tibet, I suspect that the monks are more concerned with survival than money. - o - An American business man in Kuwait reports on how seriously the Arab League countries take their nbn- recognition of Israel. He ordered a Mlnkus Mr. Mlnkus Is Jewish - catalog and It was delivered torn to pieces. All stamp, coin, and news magazines such as Time are carefully examined and any references to Israel are cut out. The Scott catalog had the Israel section deleted. All of this Is reported in that most interesting of house organs, the Outburst, published several times a y«?ar by Herman Herst Jr., Slinib Oak, New York, one of the world's top stamp dealers. Pat goes on, however, to note a few things about our own postal policy and 1 would like to quote him directly. "But thanks to a rather silly law that Congress passed not too long ago, every couple of weeks the post office sends me a form letter (Pat subscribes to a Russian publication called Moscow News).Tliey want to know if 1 know that I am getting Communist literature and whether 1 actually want it. Of course, I know. 1 subscribed to it. Of course, what Congress wants is for me not to fill in the form, in which case this week's Moscow News will be burned. But then there is next week's, and the week after that and so on. In fact, I strongly suspect that there is one man In the New York post office who sits at a desk waiting for my copy to come in each week so he can send me his friendly form letter (which required no postage). Then he sits back and waits a few days for my reply (which requires no postage). Today two form letters came in at one time. That means my friend who is safe-guarding my morals, lest I succumb to Communist propaganda, will have nothing to do for two weeks. Isn't this ridiculous? Bear in mind that this applies to every publication from Russia, those destined for scientists, institutions of higher learning, industrial concerns, government agencies, libraries and the like. Just how many post office employees are * spending all of their working hours protecting Americans from this so-called literature no one seems to know, but this certainly must be a factor in the so- called post office deficit we keep hearing about." - o - Thanks, Pat. I knew that such a law had been passed to check on unsolicited material sent from Russia, but 1 had no idea that it pertained to publications by subscription or that it was necessary to reaffirm every time a new issue arrived. You might address your unknown postal correspondent in New York as "comrade" and really shake things up. - o In a previous column, I commented about the stamp racket relative to the death of President Kennedy. Pat also rises to do battle and again I quote: " Princess Grace and her royal spouse should do handsomely on Kennedy's death. In an effort to assure that every collector in the world can afford to buy a Kennedy stamp, the price was kept low. It is only 28 cents. But if you want to show your grief for Kennedy more substantially, you can buy the same stamp imperforate for only $36. But that is not all. The Kennedy brew has been sweetened with a souvenir sheet for only $57. But what good is just one souvenir sheet when it comes both perforated andimperforate?That will cost another $57." - o - Well spoken. A so-called complete coverage of Kennedy stamp issues now comes to some $450 to $500. Really legitimate issues would reduce the total to about $100. Yet someone must buy or these "garbage" issues would soon cease. It is a pity that hobbies are sometimes exploited and an even greater pity that the collectors involved allow it to happen.
