[Mississippi race riots?] deal is a disgrace and believe me, I’ll hear about it wherever I go. With this deal and waiting for travel orders three weeks believe me one questions one’s own government.”

1962 Oct 13, 1 p. no env. Letter to Folks “Kathleen said the Peace Corps’ers coming from KSU and Okla. Were worn out from an 18 hr day program. Where does our health ed. com in? No wonder KSU profs said they slept through classes. Kathleen said Okla. Housed them in unused barracks that were bed bug infested and when they complained or reported the college officials made light of it. How can you accomplish change in a developing country if your technicians don’t expect change where they live?”
1962 Oct 17, 2 p. w/env. Letter to Folks Has a new address; “If something soon doesn’t break here I’m going to quit and get settled in Manhattan and get ready to enroll in school the second semester.”
1962 Oct 24, 2 p. w/env. Letter to Folks “I got a note from the personnel Women in Liberia this am. They had to make out my travel orders to come from Manhattan here so now perhaps I can collect. I’m broke from advancing so much money.”

Letter to Folks Discusses the difference between the US and underdeveloped countries are that the US was settled by a matured social group while these underdeveloped countries are still immature and have never had the chance to mature; is to confer with the woman who’s place Mary is to take in Libya; discusses plans for her departure to Libya; read about F.A.O. in an issue of Reader’s Digest.
1962 Oct 27, 4 p. no env. Letter to Velma The latest news is that she is going to Libya for 90 days T.D.Y. and then work to keep the job permanently; “Many groups of students were picketing the White House today so I went over to see the deal. I walked by the Russian Embassy and it was well guarded. The signs the pickets carried looked like 8th graders had made them. Cops were everywhere. [Incomplete?] Manchester hotel paper will be doing some business with F.A.O in Rome for a couple days on the way to Libya.
1962 Oct 28, 3 p. w/env. Letter to Folks “We can’t send wires and cables out of missions now because of the Military Freeze and it makes traveling bad;” “I’ve been reading the Sun paper. I think our situation is much more serious than many of us think. We drove out past the Pentagon and the parking lot was full of cars which we felt mean many of the Military were working today.”
1962 Oct [?], 1 p. w/env. Letter to Brother and Niece “Today the boss said our Asst. Director just came back from Washington and said the Liberian officials don’t know what they want and need and so it is difficult for Washington to decide on Aid. I’m sure he is right from my experience at the Senator’s session with the Secretary of Agriculture. His answers sounded like an 8th grader.”
