Since Mr. and Mrs. Carl Shutts of Washington to conduct the business of government and we not only pay them but we also, through our taxes, entrust them with the management of a considerable chunk of our money. What Mrs. Welton laments, and rightfully so, is that we are lax in telling our representatives in Charleston and in Washington what we want done. From July 1 of this year until June 30 of 1960 the people of the United States will pay to the federal government ap- proximately 77 billion dollars. The people of West Vir- ginia will send to their state government well over 100 million dollars. How the former sum of 77 billion dollars this is our money and these representatives are out trus- tees it is incumbent upon us, if we seek to hold them ac- countable, to let them know what we want done. This can be done by letters setting forth our views. If we do not advise our representatives we have no right to com- plain if theY act contrary to our wishes. I III I VCHAT'S GOING ON IN .
