2 The Glenvflle Democrat/Pathfinder Friday, Aagust 20, 1976 .@ Clowser fann cited for conservation They didn't even try Although the zmmr t.;ounty Republican party's questionable method of selecting delegates to the state convention cannot be condoned, it can perhaps be understood. The Democrats, who hold nearly a 3-1 edge in party registration in Gilmer County, followed the law and advertised the time and meeting location for their magisterial conventions, They drew crowds of 3, 6, 7 and ten, In all probability the Repubhcans would not have drawn any more to their conventions, if they had been held. It may be that Gilmer Countians have little inclination to take part in local party politics. A democracy is, however, a government of the majority, not the few. State law requires that parties make at least a minimal effort to include more people in their affairs. The Republicans were wrong in not making this effort. honors We're here to print the news In an attempt to keep our readers batter informed, the Democrat/Pathfinder begins a policy this week of publishing every deed transaction and every marriage license application filed with the county clerk's office. In fairness, we cannot agree not to publish one deed or marriage license application while publishing all others. It is not the newpaper's position to make such judgments. We're here to print the news. Criticism of Moore unjustified To the Editor, In no way do I wish to limit your freedom of editorial expression, but I would like to exercise my right of dissent. To me, the choice of words in your editorial in the August 12 issue criticizing Governor Arch A. Moore, Jr., was in very poor taste and left much to be desired, I suspect your reference to his mentality, a' t whatever level you might have imagined, and to his yielding to pressures found few believers among your readers. : I believe that most straight thinking people who wish our state to prosper, ! and are aware of what has been happening during the past seven and one-half : years, would be in agreement that Governor Moore's record of achievement i!! needs no verbal defense. It speaks very plainly for itself. It is my contention that there is a middle of the road approach to our environmental problems that would do no serious harm to the environment neither would it upset our economic well being. I sincerely hope that whoever sucveds Governor Moore has the courage, wisdom, and determination to act in tile best interests of the people of our state that has been demonstrated during the past two administrative terms of office' CONSERVATION IN FARMING-Pictured above Mrs. lloyd Ciowser of Cedarvllle.
