The newest "member" of the P&Z Commit-tee was introduced at their June meeting, Janet Gillmar's 4-week old son Bennett. Probably intent on gathering all the knowledge he could from the spirited discussion, he hardly let out a peep throughout the 1½-hour session,


The League of Women Voters of Baton Rouge, Louisiana's capital city, has sent an announcement of the "Bed and Breakfast" pro-gram for other League members, spouses and their children.

"Located on the Mississippi River, Baton Rouge is only minutes away from many of the South's most beautiful plantation homes, and only 88 miles from the excitement of New Or-leans and the 1984 World's Fair. Baton Rouge will also be the host city for the 1983 International Special Olympics.

Members of the Baton Rouge League will provide pleasant, quiet housing at a fraction of commercial rates, easy parking, and an optional continental breakfast.

Reservations and prepayments in full are required 2 weeks in advance. For further in-formation or reservations, write or call:

Our hardworking Membership Chair, Mary Ellen Reed and her husband and League member, Bob (you've seen him at almost every one of League's functions and at vote counts), are taking a well-deserved vacation this summer that will take them to Maui for a week on July 24. A quick return home to repack and they're off to California to visit their daughter, then off to Japan, China, Nepal, India and Thailand.

The Reeds will return on October 1 to immediately become immersed in League's membership drive.

Astrid Monson, P&Z co-chair, and her husband, Don, are spending the Fourth of July on the mainland with Don's family, and then later, they depart for Europe---Portugal, France, Austria, and who knows where. They hope to see friends they made when Don headed the housing reconstruction for the Marshall Plan. They'll be back on Sept. 9.


Marian Heidel, the past Honolulu League Treasurer, is in the process of organizing an 18 or 19-day tour to mainland China in mid-October, departing from San Francisco and Los Angeles. The trip would cost approximately $2, 895---probably a little less for those boarding in Honolulu.

Marian was born in China of medical missionary parents and spent her early years (1936-1948) in Zhejiang (Chekiang) Province, near the city of Hangzhon. Since then, she has gone back twice for visits, in 1981 and in 1982.

Those of you who may be interested in joining this tour should write to Marian. She will be away on the mainland until Aug. 11, but her son will be forwarding her mail to her at her major stopping points.


Anne Lee has been invited to speak on reapportionment at a meeting of the Army an. Air Force Exchange Services (AAFES) employees on August 26th, Women's Equality Day.

The AAFES which provides all kinds of support services for the military, has as one of their three emphasis programs, the Federal Women's Program whose purpose is to increase advancement of women so that women will be fairly represented in all kinds of jobs and in all levels of management.

Anne, incidentally, just left for a month's visit with her mother who lives in Berkeley. She and her son will then fly to Ohio where she lived before coming to Hawaii and where she was a League member. Then she's off to Washington D.C. to participate in a political seminar on the U.S. Constitution and the Supreme Court. She'll be back on August 14.
