	Any time one convention 'feeds off the other' for conventioneers, 
that is competition, no matter what time of the year the 
conventions are held.

     I would not consider the Salem tour to be in the pre-convention 

	What strikes me as being out of the ordinary with some in TBIS 
is the fact that several TBIS leaders show up for Board Meetings at 
AIS Conventions but do not stay around for other meetings, 
banquets, and tours of said AIS Convention.  Seeing this happen in 
Dallas is not my first observation of this fact, and, of course, these 
leaders have every right to leave as they please.  But, I feel as if 
this act is some sort of boycott or silent protest of AIS.  I get bad 
vibes when I see this happen.  Another observer in Dallas said it 
was 'downright rude.'  I cannot see such acts as 'spreading the 
gospel' of irises or the TBIS.  

I agree that the section/cooperating society problem has taken 
much too long to settle.  Is the end in sight?  Let members of AIS 
and TBIS vote 'up or down' as the AIS Board did, and please let 
every member vote, not just the 'household.'
