SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT In an effort to expedite a seemingly long pending applicat- ion for Federal assistance in solving its sewerage financing problems, Mayor Nicholas Cm-son and the members of the Charles Town CiLy Council, accompanied by J. Robert C, n, superintendent of municipal works for Charles Town, went to Washington earlier this week. The purpose of the visit was to call on Senator Randolph and Byrd, and Congressman Stag- gers, and find out just why the application for a federal loan to finance the planning stage of a sewerage program was being delayed. According to the city authorities, the applicat- ion for the loan was made about fifteen months ago and according to a news report that was put out last week, pre- sumably with the approval of the city authorities, the city has beeen getting the run-around .ver since. We commend the City Fathers for discussing this matter with our representatives in Washington, and we hope that the visi will indeed expedite some final action on the pending application. But in fattiness to Senator Randolph we feel the record shouhl show that until the City Fathers made their visit this week Senator Randolph was not aware of the diffi- culties the City Fathers were encountering. We print this as a fact because there is a plain inference that Senator Ran- dolph has not been properly attending to the needs of his con- stituents. Few men who have been p vileged to represent this area in the Congress of the United States have ever been more attentive to the needs of this area than Senators Randolph, Byrd and C mgressman Staggers. On any problems or re- quests within their power. We have always found all three of them prompt to reply and equally prompt to act.

Dear Mr. Brown: We as American peopl'e find it very convenien to be able to ex- press our opini ons through free- dom of speech and freedom of press. But, in expressing our opinions to the public, we should be concerned about expressing real truth, and facts,~ tha~ are not misleading to our American pub- lic. Last week in reading a letter to Vhe editor, the author of the arti- cle men ioned something about the sChool board runniing a con- test for the :enaming of Page- Jackson School. I wonder if he knows who Mr. Page and Mr. Joekson were. These were two Negro educators who contributed much to the development of chil- dren in this county. They did much toward the field of educa- tion. not only h)cally but their great expanse of knowledge ex- tended beyond the borders of Jefferson County. you just erase great men's numes when they p ss from [he scene of ac. ion? I say no. If the author of last week's article, could have found out who the two men were. He would have been a little more reluctant to mention bout renaming Page-Jackson school. I wonder what name he has in mind. If people expressed themselves through basic truths, there would be confusion and strife in his great tend of Amer- ica, and a better understanding among all people. Thank You. OSCAR D.
