| April/May 1988

Herein you will find 80 pages of news and ads centering on the collecting and restoring of stationary gas engines and antique gas tractors. With all the mounting interest as evidenced by the prime reading material offered, we can see a triumphant season on the way for all organizations.

Another evidence of the rising interest in this hobby is our Steam & Gas Engine Show Directory, coming out to the thousands who have ordered it, with more than 500 shows and museums listed. If you haven't ordered, don't lose out-you won't want to leave home without a Directory.

On the back cover of the 1988 Directory is an outstanding photo taken at the Barnes Steam & Power Show, Belgrade, Montana. Ted Worrall, of Loma, Montana, took it and made it available. The caption on the cover is inadequate.

We are preparing another directory-an update of our Farm Museum Directory. The first was very popular. If you operate a farm museum, write to Farm Directory, Box 328, Lancaster, PA 17603.

One of our favorite testimonials has come in from a reader who says he looks forward more to GEM than to his Social Security check! We hope he'll have both for many years to come.

This has nothing to do with engines but it is very important: Don't forget to vote, especially in November!
