I had very mixed feelings about that meeting. On the one hand, I was glad to see such a large tUrn-out. Anyone who ~ cares about an issue~should make his view known where it can be counted. This is what democracy is all about and is a much healthier procedure than not taking part in making a decision and then griping afterward’because you don’t like the decision that was made. On the other hand, I was surprised and disturbed by the number of people present who seemed hostile to the whole idea of a meeting where issues could be discussed and voted on in an orderly way. Democracy also involves giving everyone the right to be heard whether or not youagree with the other person’s position. Personally, like alniost everyone else, I believe, I am glad the particular issue has been settled. While it is cer- tainly better for controversy to be out in the open rather than supressed, it is better yet to find ways in which we can work together to make Cabin John a community that we all enjoy livingin. I hope that the large participation at the Town Meeting canbe acarried for- ward into projects which will bring us all together.. Andrew E. Rice President, Cabin John Citizens Association INCREDIBLES This month’s recipe is for Spinach Filled BakedPotatoes.

For two years Cabin John has been divided by certain persons in the Citi: Dear Editor, Just a note of thanks for getting • the facts – pro and con — to the peo- ple of Cabin John. In the 35 years that I have lived here I don’t believe I have seen a larger turnout than we had at the Special Meeting, June 17. I felt rather sorry for the new presi- dent faced with such acrowd but thought he handled the situation quite well under the circumstances. Having talked with a number of personswho attended the meeting, I • feel certain that there will be an in- crease in membership andattendance at the Citizens Association meetings. Most of those with whom I talked said the articles in THE VILLAGE NEWS were the incentive for their appearance at the meeting. They thought both sides of the question were well covered. Hopefully THE VILLAGE NEWS will continue to let the people know about future issues as clearly as this recent one.’ Dagny H. Newman Secretary, Cabin John Gardens Assoc. The June town meeting andthe efforts leading up to it have shown that there are many more people in Cabin John whohave strong feelings and a willingness to participate — other than those relative few who have been • undertaking the official civic work of the community. This is a healthy and productive development. From now on, with shared responsibility,decision making and action stands to he on a wider, more fully repre- sentative base. This can only be beneficial to Cabin John as a community. Barbara Clark Dear Editor, At this time I would like to thank the people of Cabin John for the won= derful turnoutat the town meeting. Please keep going tO support your community. I would like to compliment the newspaper for a really nice job, and the way of explaining different situ- ations. All I can say is thanks to all and a job well done. Bill Castle The Quick Food Shop zens Association, who, in their repre- sentation of this community, have been arbitrary, capricious, and have acted without full knowledge of the facts. On Tuesday, June 17, the facts caught up with these people. P.ersons like Ella Fisher, Junior Lee, Morris Fradin, Betty Ricketts, Vera Dolezal, Barbara Close, and 140 others reminded us what the true sentiments of Cabin John reaily are. Andrew Rice, the new President of the Citizens Association, has a reputa- tion as a fair”and honest man, and gives every indication of becominga fine President. We shall follow his efforts to correct the zoning mistake and pledge him our support. • ‘ Both my wife and I extend our most sincere and heartfelt thanks to our neighbors and friends for their support in this issue. Your efforts have reaf- firmed our faith in this community, and given us the resolve to attend all meetings, and work to maintain the character of Our town. Jim Wilner To THE VILLAGE NEWS: Our patrons love our Cabin John paper. They join me in complimenting you and your staff for the fine job you are doing in reporting and presenting our community with both sides of an issue. It’s become a professional newspa- perl Thanks.

Implementing this clear expression .of community feel- ing deserves and needs a great deal of hard Work. The number of people not recenfly’irivolved in community work, wh O parti’cipated in this issue (and hopefully will Continue t 9 parti- cipate) is a very positive sign.
