BARBARA FARWELL has been invited to participate on a panel sponsored by the NAACP on Oct. 3 at the Ala Moana Hotel. She'll be presenting the League's views on Pres. Reagan's budget cuts in social programs. A $15 donation is requested to atten the Freedom Fund Seminar and Luncheon. For more info, call B. Dwight, 521-4293.

It's a "China Spectacular" in the Lobby Gallery of the YWCA on Richards St. from Oct. 7-28. CARLA and WALTER CHOTZEN and their daughter Vonnie spent 3 weeks in China last April. Carla, who is never without camera, has produced a show of over 100 portraits called FACES OF CHINA. Don't miss it!

China must be "in" with Leaguers this year. ASTRID and DON MONSON have just returned, capping their China tour in grand style being feted by old friends and former colleagues in Taiwan. ALICE and "SCOTTY" SCOTT should be returning this month with their experiences to share, and MARIAN and JOHN HEIDEL spent 41/2 weeks with Punahou's annual China study tour. It was also a "return home" for Marian who once lived in China. Perhaps we can persuade them all to put together a general meeting on "Perspectives of China."

The office will never be the same again -we'll be able to find things! The Board has hired CAROL WHITESELL as part-time office manager. Carol, who has served as Honolulu president and vice-president of State League and has been one of our most active and respected members, is over qualified for the job -- but the Board decided to overlook that problem. Carol will be in three mornings a week and should have that office whipped into shape in no time!

Is a goof a goof when it pays off? We've received 6 requests for our Vote Count Coordinator's manual since the National VOTER came out this summer and we've also received an apology from Debra Harmon, Ass't Editor, for confusing Honolulu LWV with State (Hawaii). As Barbara Farwell said in her tongue-in-cheek letter of complaint, Honolulu's "used to being confused with the state of Hawaii as well as with Guam, Pago Pago, and Tahiti. However, we feel our mother in Washington ought to be able to tell the difference." But, as long as we sell our manuals

SHEILA JAMES and LONA WYATT, co-chairs of Women's Issues, keep the language at our Board meetings gender-pure. The mailman doesn't deliver our mail, the mail carrier does. To show how ridiculous it is to use "man" to mean human beings, they offer:

"Man is a mammal who suckles his young."

*

Our membership records are being centralized in the office. We're hoping to plug the pukas on acknowledging and routing new members, making address changes, sending dues notices, etc. Membership co-chairs, ANN REEVES and AUDREY HUTER need help telephoning members to remind them of late dues. We hate to drop members who may have just forgotten a dues notice hidden in the back of a drawer! Please call them.

League's voice on VIEWPOINT should be heard again this month as soon as ARDIS SHAW returns from the Mainland. Ardis, who works for Rep. BARBARA MARUMOTO, replaces ROMAYNE KARL who has moved to L.A. If you have any viewpoints you want aired, call Ardis, 373-4163, or the office.
