And why mostly in Bisaya? I thought Tanjayanons speak and understand
- am I right, or I just thought wrong? Why don't you publish articles

not write essays on how you can help and contribute on the progress of
your town? In that way, reading your newsletter would at least do a

To the Editorial Board:
you're doing a wonderful job, Mr(?) Al Moranas' opinion to the contrary
support what you're doing and to urge you to change nothing in
choice of "subjects and substance." Everyone knows that Ang Tanjayanon
is written mainly for the Tanjayanons and their friends to provide
