To the Editor:
Publisher Sherman Frederick was on target when he took note of the fact that Jewish Sabbath observers will not be able to participate in this year's presidential caucuses (Sunday column, Jan. 13). We do not attribute any malicious intent to the party leaders who set the date and time, but we endorse Mr. Frederick's exhortation that they should "fix it next time around."
Because caucuses do not allow participation by absentee ballot, we hope every effort will be made to avoid a similar conflict in the future.
