Transcript 331 62nd Street Oakland, California 94618 415 654-2308 AN OPEN LETTER TO WESTERCON Dear friends, Of course you understand that our last best Why else would you be here? You know that it isn or the adventure; it's knowledge, technology, an and misery which still grip most of humankind, a burdens upon Mother Earth, an infinite frontier, have rejoiced in the triumphs of the American space program, sorrowed at its decline, and fretted to see how fitfully it is getting under way again. But what can we, you and I, do? hope lies in space t just the glamour end to the poverty relief of the Like me, you must Well, in lies right to fact, we can do quite a lot, and one opportunity hand this weekend. There is a movement afoot to put an initiative measure upon the California ballot next year. This measure will, in the name of the people, affirm the importance of a reinvigorated space program, and call upon Congress and the President to take appropriate action. Although it will have no legally binding force, its political impact should be tremendous. For the first time, the people of an entire state — the most populous state in the Union — will have expressed their wish for an unlimited tomorrow, and for the actions that can b£ing us there. Time is short, though. The deadline for collecting enough petition signatures draws nigh. If we can get those,a hard campaign still lies ahead, to explain the truth to the voters. (The problem is not that ordinary persons aren't interested in space. They are, regardless of what the news media say. But they lack a means of making their wishes known. That is what this movement is trying to provide.) The Space Initiative needs signatures of qualified voters; money; volunteer help of all kinds. If you would like to join in, please go to the table in the dealers' room, or ask one of the representatives who will be explaining in detail on the formal program. This Westercon is a gathering which, over and above all the fun and fellowship, will try to help make the dearest dreams of science fiction come true. Let's make 1984 a year not of doom but of joy.
