NANCY GUILLE breezed in and out of town in mid-August with news about the San Diego League and life in the real estate business, mainland style. Her first stop in town was the LWV office. Some bad habits are hard to break!

Not only does LWV write letters to the editor, members do, too. Two recent ones bear repeating:

In your recent story about teenagers who assisted in a rescue of boaters off Waikiki, you identified the youngsters as the daughter of an architect, the son of an attorney and the grandson of Richard Smart of Parker Ranch.

Too bad those charming teenagers don't have mothers!

Frances M. Dohme

Right on, Frances!

The voting trend of the Kakaako Citizens' Advisory Ctte was: Barbara Farwell for the people, all the rest for themselves.

Walter Chotzen

We're with you, Walter! But Barbara says the credit goes to ASTRID MONSON who was on the Ctte.

ARLENE WOO who does Viewpoint on KHVH-Radio isn't our only media personality. PAT SHUTT, State President, appeared on KHETTV on July 24 as part of a panel on Dialog discussing "Does your vote count?" She was also on a KNDI Radio talk show on Aug. 7 on the same subject. ANNE MARIE DUCA will also be on KNDI on Thursday, Sept. 4, t:30 p.m. answering questions on this year's Primary Election. Stay tuned! League is getting the word out.

While on a recent trip to San Francisco, BARBARA FARWELL noticed that the city's Muni has new Grumman buses with black windows just like ours. SF columnist Herb Caen noted that some call them "Darth Vader Specials". They do look a bit sinister prowling the streets, but the worst is you can't tell if they're empty or crowded until you're ready to get on!
