(Title OF LETTER)TO ALL ALPA CHAIRMEN AND OFFICERS AND COUNCILMEN.

DEAR MEMBER:

YOU WILL FIND ATTACHED AN EXCERPT FROM A LETTER RECEIVED FROM ONE OF OUR MOST ACTIVE MEMBERS.

IT'S THE KIND OF MATERIAL THAT SHOULDN'T BE WASTED BY IT BEING PLACED IN FILE DRAWER "X". IT IS SOMETHING THAT WE SHOULD ALL THINK ABOUT. IT IS A MIXTURE OF TRUTH AND SELF-INDICTMENT THAT REALLY STARTS ONE TO THINKING.

THERE IS PLENTY WRONG IN OUR INDUSTRY TODAY AND WITH OUR PROFESSION. IN THESE PARAGRAPHS, THE FINGER POINTS PRETTY DEFINITELY TO THE REASONS AND WHAT MIGHT BEST BE DONE TO GET THINGS BACK ON THE RIGHT TRACK. 

IN ANY EVENT, READ IT CAREFULLY AND I AM SURE IT'LL MAKE YOU THINK.

SINCERELY YOURS,

AIR LINE PARENTS ASSOCIATION

DAVID L. BEHNCKE, PRESIDENT
