At least once a year, it seems, we make a major mistake in putting GEM together. This time, the gaffe is the cover story on the 1945 Cletrac on the April issue. We forgot to include that story last month, and so you will find it in this issue on page 15. Sorry about that!
This issue has a feature you'll want to know about: on the inside back cover you'll find changes to listings in our 1994 Directory. None of these were misprints, they're all changes from original information submitted to us. We'll continue to carry such changes on the inside back cover as the show season progresses.
We're encouraged to see we have several stories about young people involved in the engine hobby, and we also have a crossword puzzle assembled by one of our readers.
Once again, we have to ask for your patience in the sometimes late delivery of your magazines. Our April issue was mailed much closer to our usual date than March. We hope that the major snows are over and you'll experience no more serious delays.
I've been getting a fair amount of response to my March column, and you'll be hearing more about what your fellow readers have to say about GEM. We appreciate the various opinions (which represent different viewpoints) and the very positive way in which most of you state your ideas.
Since this is the May issue, when you receive it, Spring swap meets and auctions will be the order of the day a welcome relief after our great snowy winter!
