General note

1959 Sep 05, 5 p. w/env. Letter to Folks Had the dentist and his wife over because she thinks they are intelligent and “the future hope of an effective foreign aid program;” went to observe Sunday School as she might be teaching it; had the boss’s secretary over and “she poured out her heart to me, She is confused and missed up and unable to figure out what cooks here. This is no place for young single people;” still is unable to get her car out; little counterpart has been gone four weeks now; had the gas line all dug up and one day it broke “why all these houses didn’t get blown up I’ll never know;” finally her little counterpart had showed up; classified I.C.A. conference in September but it’s only for V.I.P.s; is going back to her Turkish language class
1959 Sep 08, 4 p. w/env. Letter to Folks “Today I was near the breaking point trying to talk I.C.A. into getting some planks to drive my car out and trying to think how to get my counterparts to work;” the Government of Pakistan called Mary’s old counterpart back to Pakistan but she cannot get her degree from K.S.C. until December so the university got on the wires, “It’s the first time I’ve ever heard of a university going to bag against a foreign government;” finally got planks to get her car out, she had to sit in two offices, the bosses’ and the general service office.
1959 Sep 12, 5 p. w/env. Letter to Folks Had finished peanut candy for her Short Course when her “little dumb counterpart” showed up at the door, “The older one had sent her to tell me that the minister of Agriculture had taken in 50 itinerant teachers from the Ministry of Education to our Short Course and changed the meeting place to accommodate them;” went to her boss to try and work things out; “The boss evidently has been trying to get me a new counterpart as he said he guessed Suheyla has more political power…Well I still think I may be fired and sent home. I wish I could think the boss would lick this problem but I have a feeling that the only person who will end up licked is me.”
1959 Sep 19, 4 p. w/env. Letter to Folks Finished her Short Course, said “no” on combining the two groups so she will be doing a repeat the next week; has tried several different ways to do her short course rather than having one lecture after another, “I think the result is perhaps the girls felt it was a pretty low echelon conference educationally because the only way for an educator to operate in Turkey is to stand on a high platform far above the students and repeat several chapters from a book;” her music program is going well; is getting more attached to the kids she’s teaching in Sunday School; is trying to save energy to go to an International Conference in India since Turkey refuses to spend any money to represent themselves, “which is one more reason I point out that Turkey is the most unprogressive country educationally in Asia.”

Letter to Folks “Today a miracle happened,” her counterpart promised to lead singing and recreation that Mary had demonstrated, and her boss acts as if he’s going to “tighten up on things;” had strife trying to get a bill paid; is not answering her door because she’s sick of the “eskige” who are folk who buys things for resale; “Gave a 5 min report at staff meeting this am.

She should be in an institution.”
