Margolis, George. "Another Silent Majority (Letter to the Editor)."
New York Times, May 26, 1971, p. 42.
In a letter to the editor, George Margolis draws attention to those most effected by the draft
(the underpriveleged and ethnic groups). He points to a Congressional Quarterly publication
where it was said that of all the Congressmens' eligible sons (234), only 26 actually served in
Vietnam and only one got injured. What made the situation so repugnant to Margolis was that the
group most affected by the unfairness of the draft were not being heard by those in power. They,
he said, were the "new silent majority."
