Letters from our readers 1983 No 2

Dear Learn and Teach I worked at a wool and textile factory for 25 years. One day the foreman told me to kick some workers. I refused and the factory fired me. They did not give me a testimonial letter. And when I tried to get U.I.F. money, the Department of Manpower sent me away. What can I do? Abel Tshwala Standerton

Thanks for the letter Abel. Please write to the Industrial Aid Society. They will try help you. Their address is: Industrial Aid Society, P.O. Box 261119 EXCOM, 2023 -editor

Dear Learn and Teach I found out about your magazine a few months ago. I like the magazine. Can I get a set of all the old magazines? I am also a member of the United Women’s Organization (UWO). Can we sell your magazine? Once again, congratulations for the magazine. A.H. Gagioano Stellenbosch

Thank you for the letter. Yes, we do sell old magazines. We have printed 10 magazines so far. Send us R2.00 and we will send you a set of magazines. Or send us 20 cents for each magazine you want. Yes, we really do want organizations to sell the magazine. If organizations sell the magazine, the organizations get 10 cents for every magazine they sell. -editor

Dear Learn and Teach I enjoy your magazine. I buy it every month. I am worried about Sloppy’s lover Lizzie. Lizzie is too old for Sloppy. He must forget about Lizzie. He must take me instead of Lizzie. Please ask Sloppy to send me his real photo and his address. I am a lonely doll. I am looking for a handsome guy with a long nose like Sloppy. I don’t mind when Sloppy is funny. But he must leave that ugogo Lizzie. If he comes to visit me, I will kill all the dogs at home. I know he is scared of dogs. I will make Sloppy satisfied. Joyce Eshowe

We’ve got bad news for you Joyce. Read what happens to Sloppy this month. Hope the news doesn’t break your heart. -editor

Dear Learn and Teach I passed standard five. Now I want to do standard six. Tell me where I can study? Kiewiet Khoantle Stilfontein.
