But more shocking and dis- couraging is the fact that few citizens realize when 'the boat pulled out and left them on the dockI" The general election is actually of minor significance compared to the precinct caucus, where the drafting party platforms and nomtnat- tng of candidates takes place. It is estimated that no more than 3 per cent of registered voters participate in precinct caucuses -- where the action starts and the really vital decisions are made. This means that be- tween 1 and 2 per cent of the nation's voters control precinct caucuses and thereby provide the total electorate with a ballot choice in the general election. Voter apathy -- ignorance of the way the system should work -- lack of faith in the demo- cratic process -- take your choice of reasons for the failure of what is acclaimed to be a truly free democratic society. Many of ourcountry's founding fathers felt that only a select few of the nation's citizens should be privileged to vote because they felt the masses were unqualified to make intelligent Judgments of issues of na- tional scope. When one looks at our recent election it appears that maybe those old fel- lows might have been right! Don't people realize that it was a well organ- ized, zealous minority who swept Hitler into HYGRADE-Water add. Boneless- Half or whole lb.

It is fright- ening to think how vulnerable the U.S. is todayaaR ETTY and how quickly and easily it could happen right here, and we could wake up some morning with a Hitler or a Castro or a Franco calling the shots. Here is a challenge to every citizen of this country: Ftrst ask yourself if you exercised your privil- ege and obligation to participate In the drafting oz your party's platform and in the selection of your party's candidates at your precinct caucus. Second, ask every person you hear complain about the choice they had at the polls whether or not they participated in their precinct caucuses. And third, promise yourself and your country that you will not be asleep the next time around. Howard Magnuson 15027 179th Avenue S.E. Monroe, Washington EDITOR: I would like to express, on behalf of the Lady Lions members and myself, the apprecia- tion we have toward everyone who helped on the Downtown Christmas Decroation Project. Without the help of the City Officials and their crews, the businessmen who donated equip- ment, the Monroe Lions Club, the Jaycees, the Honor Society, the Monroe Monitor for its publicity and the citizens of Monroe our task would not have been possible. It was a pleasure to participate in a pro- Ject where so much willing co-operation and assistance is given. So thank you everyone for all your time and hard work.
