Self-contradictory justification for voting for Radha:
> I think we need younger people to be in charge of the Society's 
work and that they have to stay in Adyar. Dr. Algeo who is around 78, 
does not like the climate here, nor can he leave the United States 
for more than a short time, in view of his wife's condition.

How can an 84-year-old urge people to vote against a 78-year-old on 
the basis that he is too old?  The need for younger people would seem 
to suggest the current president not run for reelection.

That is not good enough, and is in fact electoral sleaze.  Either you 
KNOW what he intends or you find out.  This "I believe that if 
elected" demeans the very office over which you are fighting-- as 
does the "Radha's losing it" sleaze from the Algeo camp.

Adyar shortly, to stay and work here.
But if John Algeo is elected, they won't?  Surely under either 
scenario, the TS will continue to be governed by a gerontacracy and 
younger people will be needed to actually do the work.
