Our Steam and Gas Show directories have finally arrived from the printer,' and we'll be anxiously awaiting our readers' response. Remember, if you find an error in your show's dates, for whatever reason, let us know so that we can try to print corrections in a future issue of our magazines. There are thousands of bits of information in the directory, and occasionally an error is made, so do let us hear from you. We're very pleased with the results this year, and hope you'll order in time for it to be most useful to you.
Nathan Tank, a subscriber from Walcott, Iowa wrote to give us some thoughtful criticism about our failure to provide references in Jack Heald's last installment of The Real Fordson printed in our November 1988 issue. We apologize for not being more careful in giving exact references to the previous articles in that series. For those of you who would like to know, the WHOLE REAL FORDSON story can be found by looking in these back issues: July 1985, page 21; February 1986, page 22; August 1987, page 2 and September 1987, page 18. The CONCLUSION appeared in the November 1988 issue on page 14. A lot of work went into Jack's series over the 4 years and we hope this information will help everyone who will be going back to review it.
If you are the person placing advertising for your club's show this year and you didn't receive one of our packages of information and would like one, don't hesitate to let us know and we'll be glad to send it to you. We have had a rate change, and the new rates are printed in the back of each issue.
We have been receiving lots of stories, and many show reports, so do be patient in waiting for your news to come to print! It may take a bit longer than usual, but we are trying to keep up!
David Baas, of 22 Winwood Court, Floyd Knobs, IN 47119 is a subscriber who is working on a project we hope to publish later this year. Dave is assembling information for a book on garden tractors, since there is a gap on this subject. If you have information or pictures to share for this work, write to Dave or to us so we can proceed.
