ABC Election Night Report

Whether your favorite candidate won or not, whether the majority created a puka where you thought it should go on the ConCon ballot or not, YOU can join with all League members in feeling WE won for ABC! You may hav heard that "our partner in time" did, indeed, place first in the race for it. By more than two hours ABC "was spectacularly first and correct" in "giving" key state Illinois to Richard Nixon.

Hawail's successful reporting team included veterans Vera Stern, Dorothy Babineau, Trudi Zelco (on Hawaii) and Sally Wallwork (on Maui) and first-timers Anne Machovina (covering Molokai), Lucile Mundy, Josie McCarthy, and Lenore Danielson. Laurie Chapin assisted Trudi and Luella Rogers was in on the project at Wailuku. Our thanks go to these ladies as well as to Sara Cole, Amanda Kautz and Maya Boleyn who took their time to attend a briefing in case we needed extra help. Lucile's daughter, Pat Casey (budding Leaguer?) gave us some early evening time and support.

In addition to $435 for the state treasury, we are the recipients of a telegram which reads in part "Keys (precincts) told us story. Almost every key in nation reported. For once we are at loss for words." And from a letter I quote, "Again, thanks for a job well done. ABC's star would not have shown so brightly on election night if we had not had the League behind us all the way." So again, Mahalo, team!

A hard working lady receives special gratitude from the state coordinator. She is State President, Marguerite Simson. Always resourceful and pleasant. Applause for you, Madam President.
