Only room for a couple of comments this month. First, our advertising department has made a request that advertisers who submit photos would be better served if they do not try to crop them with a scissor! If you need to indicate the cropping, it is fine to do so either by describing in words or tracing the picture and indicating on a drawing where you want to zero in on a subject matter. Too often, the photos that have been cut by hand are not quite 'square,' and give our printer no leeway in positioning your sale items. Thank you for your consideration in this matter!
Also, we received a letter from a subscriber who was not at all happy with a story which appeared in a previous issue. Since we make every effort NOT to censor material that is submitted (unless it is clearly unsuitable or unrelated to the gas engine or tractor collecting hobby), if you are unhappy with an article you see, do tell the author, as well.
It's not too late to order a show directory, and the events listed go into early 1998, so it will still be useful, even now.
