This brings to mind something I saw recently in John Wister's "President's
Report 1929", AIS Bulletin number 34, Jan. 1930.  Wister wrote:

"...many of our members do not seem to understand the conditions under which
we work.  Mr. Wallace (AIS Secretary) explains these facts a dozen times a
year to members who complain about some matter and nearly always an amazed
and apologetic letter has come back from the member stating he had taken it
for granted we had a salaried staff.  Whether these members supposed the
money for such salaries fell upon us as manna from Heaven has not been stated
in the letters..."

I think this could be the beginning of a HIPS column--"The More Things
Change, the More They Remain the Same."   Whaddya think, Clarence?
