2 The Glenvflle Demoerat/PatbClnde Frldsy, July 23. 1970 Insure charter availability In an editorial written last week about the unavailability of the city charter, it was not my intent to ridicule city employees or City Recorder Edna White. I have since found that several people thought that was the meaning of my statements. It is not the employees or Mrs. White's fault that only one copy of the charter and ordinances exist and they weren't instructed as to it's whereabouts. I apologize to these people if they felt they were unjustly criticized. However, I must re-state the point that I was trying to make last week. The city charter and ordinances are public documents and as such should be open and available to the public at all times. The fact that there is only one complete copy of the charter and ordinances would seem to make it all the more important that copies be made. The one copy that does exist is in the mayor's personal possession. One copy should be in a vault or other secure place and another should be in the city office for public inspection. RPB Barb's Wire BARBARA WILLIAMS Extensien Agent Nostalgia hit last week, and as I dug through the ancient scripts, I discovered that some wit, back in the eighth grade, had nominated me for the position of the first female president of the United States. Far out, huh? I'd probably have let it 8o at that, had it not been for the noise over the Democratic convention. What sort of s platform would I have? Well. I think that first of all, I would advocate a law whereby short people !would automatically be placed on the front row during parades and concerts. !Then, I would make wedding rings mandatory for married men. I would ban :anything containing the slogan "Gentlemen prefer blondes", and institute a new :policy re-educating the public to the gross discrimination toward brunettes. I would appoint a special Congressional committee to look into the development of a replacement for the ever accident-prone umbrella (that's for *Je4 Jarrell). All public toilets would be subject to a new federal standard :requiring soft toilet tissue, and movie theaters would be aksed to provide discounts for those persons occupying less-than-average space, by benefit of unusually miniscule pectoral endowments. Lest you are still unconvinced of my ability to serve in this capacity, let me assure you that my vice-presidential running mate, Robert Redford, would be most willing to help out. Well ..... as soon as I ask him. Therecive of the week is a nutritious milkshake for hot and hungry kids. It is a combination of  cup of mint jelly,  cup creamy peanut butter, and a quart of very cold milk, gradually beaten into the mixture. I wouldn't drink it, but the Statff Department of Agriculture thinks that your kids might! Praise for camp's success Qm I1 To Tbe ! : The 1976 Gilmer County Youth Opportunity Camp has completed another successful camp session. One Hundred three boys and girls from Gflmer County participated in this year's camp. A camp of this nature would not have been possible unless it had the support of the total county. This year four agencies jointly cooperated in this program: Community Action Association, Department of Welfare, Board of Education and Glenville State College. It was a good year from the point of view of community involvement. Special thanks go to certain local merchants who were so helpful in securing needed materials for camp and even made donations of merchandise to our camp. Gilmer County seems to abound with talented people who give of their time and talents to this camp. A special thanks to all of the resource people who helped in the camp. Gilmer County is indeed fortunate to have a fine facility for camping such as the Recreation Center and its highly capable and courteous staff.
