Abstract "Brickbats," Lexington Minute Man, February 21, 1963

A collection of letters to the editor.

Claire S. Collier describes disparaging remarks made at the School Candidate's Night in Lexington. She argues that advanced degrees should not be necessary for election to office, and that Vincent McCrossen would not represent the Lexington populace.

S. A. Wentworth argues that Lexington should elect "a man of genius," Vincent McCrossen, to the Lexington School Committee.

[Cataloger's note: This comprises only a portion of the letters to the editor in this edition; more than one letter is incomplete. A handwritten note attached to this month's letters discusses the potential identity of "S. A. Wentworth" and later writer "Ellen Parker Allen."]
