Abstract "Brickbats and bouquets," Lexington Minute Man, January 31, 1963

A collection of letters to the editor.

Manfred P. Friedman expresses his belief that Vincent A. McCrossen is unqualified for membership on the Lexington School Committee.

An anonymous writer using the name "Old Timer" reacts to Martin Small's letter printed in the January 24, 1963 issue of the Minute Man. Old Timer defends Vincent McCrossen, and notes a long list of subjects previously covered by McCrossen in the pages of the Minute Man. Old Timer specifically supports McCrossen's attempt to widen the Historic Districts of Lexington.

Clifford W. Birch, Jr. supports the membership of the Lexington Town Meeting, and urges voters to hear Vincent McCrossen speak before deciding on a candidate.

Anonymous writer "X" conveys his reasons for not becoming a candidate for election to the School Committee.
