Former editor Carl F. H. Henry, longtime friend and college classmate as well as colleague on two seminary faculties, has now begun a year of research and writing in England. The debt owed him by myself, the Board of CHRISTIANITY TODAY, and the readers of the magazine is great. An editorial and a news story carry details of his activity and our appraisal of his long and honored ministry (see pp. 28, 37). His ready pen will again be featured in this magazine six months from now. Dr. Henry will have a column under his own byline every other issue so that readers can continue to enjoy his perceptive insights as he shares the fruits of his research and reflection with us.

I have on my desk a statement by Joseph Pulitzer of newspaper fame, who had for his maxim, “Put it before [men] briefly so they will read it, clearly so they will appreciate it, picturesquely so they will remember it, and, above all, accurately so they will be guided by its light.” This maxim I hope to observe.

We welcome to our office Dr. Richard Love, whose coming was announced previously. He will be assistant editor. Miss Barbara H. Kuehn (B.S. in journalism, Northwestern University, 1966, and reporter on the Milwaukee Sentinel for a year and a half) joins us as news intern as part of her program with the Washington Journalism Center. For information on this program see page 70.
