Breaking Tradition Six

Recently, when going into a local central office, I was surprised to see the shelves loaded with "twenty-four-hour books" and "little red books." Both are from an "outside enterprise."

About a year ago, I wrote a letter to the Grapevine on this subject and was nicely screened out of having my opinion printed. I attacked no one; I didn't swear; I simply brought out this breaking of Tradition Six and asked the groups to examine themselves.
