We came across this plea in a December 1941 issue of American Power Farmer.
'If you want to help your magazine, you young fellows are going to have to wade in and talk tractors if for no other reason than to start an argument.
'It's none of our business what class of farm machinery you want to talk about- this is your magazine and you can talk about what you please-but we do want more experience letters telling of some interesting experience, and don't fail to send snap shots along with them. That is what you say you want published, so roll them in-we can't publish what we don't get. Give us the dope and we will do the rest.'
I just want to remind everyone that we want to publish your stories, and your fellow subscribers want to read them, so don't always leave the role of author to others-YOUR story is interesting, too, so send it in!
It's time again for me to remind you that the deadline has come and gone for our popular annual Steam and Gas Engine Show Directory. If YOU are the one responsible for getting the 'data' in for your club, please let us know right away if it hasn't been sent.
One more item I need to share again is that, while we publish our mailing dates as the seventh of every month, there is often some variation from that. Our November issue didn't mail until the 12th of October; our December issue went out on the 3rd of November. Sometimes you'll get the magazine earlier than you expect, other times, unfortunately, later, so do be patient.
And a very Happy New Year, and may your new century's resolutions be ones you can keep!
