There has been no situation in branch promotions where a qualified applicant has been refused a promotion on the basis of race. The branch staffs are not segregated. We feel that the Summit leaders have received a mistaken impression of the make-up of the library staff. Our motto has been and is to hire the best person we can get at all times for each job to better serve our community. Sincerely, II?. fr,'JI,& Robinson l'f o Schill / { !
