From the Presiden'ts Desk

If this column is briefer than usual, and if this VOTER is a little thinner than in the past, blame it on the fact only one month remains between now and the General Election, Nov 5, and we're all working on the many projects underway to provide SERVICE to VOTERS .

Activities planned for this month by Frances McLeod, busy VOTERS SERVICE Chairman, include:

Candidates Forums

1 Oct - Forum for candidates for Mayor and Windward District Council, Pohai-Nani, Kaneohe.

25 Oct - City-County Candidates Rally in Cooperation with the College of General Studies, Univ. of Hawaii, Damien School, 7:30 p.m.

Registering of Voters

Saturday registration of voters will continue in Kailua and Kaneohe through Oct 15.

Election Year Briefing

This series of programs sponsored with the Richards St. YWCA will continue Thursdays through Oct 17. An extra session for discussing issues of the Constitutional Convention has been included at the request of women attending .

Voter's Guide

Questionnaires are now being typed for registered mailing to the Mayoral and City Council candidates successful in the Oct 5 primary. We are asking that the candidates return the completed questionnaires to us no later than Oct 11 for presentation to the printer on Oct 15 (a tight schedule that will require a staff of typists with typewriters and proofreaders).

Once received from the printer, we will have less than two weeks to give the Voter's Guides widest distribution possible. Almost 4,000 have been requested by businessmen who contribute to our finance drive. Several thousand more will be available to you members to distribute at your churches, club-meetings, to your husband's employees or co-workers.

Places on each side of the Island where members may pick up copies of the Voter's Guide will be announced at our last unit meetings in Oct. The Guide is nonpartisan (as are all League activities), and replies are printed exactly as received from the candidates. Be thinking now how many copies you will wish for concerted distribution the final twelve days before General Election.

We will also have available:

Booklets, published by our State League, listing Pros & Cons of ConCon issues.

Copies of Sep National VOTER comparing party platforms and explaining "Who Chooses the President?"
