De Oar Miss Hurstod:~

Your friends in Baltimore mut have included
ieV. Levi Miller, 1206 Stting Street, B~altimore. He was the
one who presented material from .M[ULES AND MIEN at the Southeastern
Reeretation Workshop, he~ll at Leesburg, Fla. last month.
I think, mentioned that it was inter-racial for the first
time..this year, a well-received innovation.

.It was very gracious of you to glive us permission
to use material from MULES AND. MEN. Is there anything that we
Fan do in the way of letters,. etc., to~the :publisher to help
get the book back in print agaiiit "

le 're proud 'of the stand the Methodist Chturch took
nationally. Locally we wrill more slowly in some places, courageously
in 'others, I imagine. However, the fact that the above-mentioned
recreation lab was inter-racial in Florida marks a great change.
I teach part-time at Scarritt -Colle~g1e here. It has been inter-
racial for some time. In fact, we 've found in lots of9 places that
you can often ndo it and donrt talk about it" and get by just fine.

I'm enclosing a list of some of the things Mrs. Eisenberg:
and I have done. We'll be glad to senld you copies of anything
you think might be of interest to you--without charge. And of:
course we 'll send a copy of THE OMrNIBUS OF FUN when it is off
the press.

Yofi knowf, there is one difficulty--the publishers. I am
not absolutely sure they will- run dialect materials I im going to
put up a real song and dance, now that I have your permission.
Tb some folk there's something odious about dialect. (As. if we
didn'tlall use it). The real question is Whether we're laughing with
or -la~ing~n rc.. I'm against any laughing at.

Your observations about the Catholie Ch~urch are interesting.
Authoritarianism has never appealed to me, in a church or any other
place. You told us some things we dildnrt know

Thanks and best iirishes.
