Moderate change suggested

To the Journal editor:

I have a suggestion regarding this (Redmen/Redettes) issue. From what I understand, the name was originally chosen because the superintendent at the time wanted the word, red, and therefore the color red in the name.

I was a proud “redman” graduating in 1960. Why don’t they merely change things to Red Men which would signify the color and eliminate any reference to Native Americans?
