Again we want to say that the only notice you will receive from us is the renewal slip of paper you will find in the magazine when the expiration comes. We are doing it this way to save expense. We hope you don't mind and when the expiration notice is found in the magazine that if you intend to renew, that you will do it as soon as you can. That will help us in our book-keeping. Thank you.

The robins have arrived so I guess it won't be long until Mother Nature has everything painted green and we will feel life is worth living after all.

One thing is for sure not many in this section ever experienced a white Easter before. They say it hasn't happened since 1885. Early on the morning of March 29, it started snowing; we all thought it wouldn't last, but it didn't let up until it had dumped eight inches of snow on the ground. By noon driving was really treacherous.

We have had several inquiries for help on different engines. Mr. Sebastian Macaluso, Box 368, Monroe, New York 10950, would like to know if anyone has operating instructions for a 40 hp. 'Olin Gas Engine.' His friend has one and they would like to get it started as soon as warm weather comes. They are two optimistic people.

Mr. Victor Suelter, R. R. 2, Lincoln, Kansas 67455, wants catalog or instruction book on Waterloo Boy (12-25) he bought. Also Mr. Charles Van Ry, Wolcott Hill Road, Camden, New York 13316, wants to know if there is information available telling the right colors for different engines.

This is an unusual request -- Mr. M.B. Martinson, 601 Gilman, Sheffield, Iowa 50475, has inquired if there is anybody making steam engines that they are installing on automobiles that can be bought. Also, if anybody is making steam cars that can be bought at the present time.
