For more than a year and a half we have been suffering from computer problems in our circulation of the magazine. The electronic monster has not always behaved itself, and some of our subscribers have written me personal letters after trying vainly to get their problems solved and start the magazine coming their way again. I apologize to all who have been caught up in this confusion. But the end of the problem is in sight!

From now on we will handle subscription records in our own offices, where we have installed equipment that we can operate ourselves. We will be able to change addresses and service accounts with a minimum of delay, and we want all our subscribers to know about the change. I invite subscribers to write me personally if one month from now the service is defective.

Our last print order was 149,000 copies. Why not recommend the magazine to a friend, or subscribe for him? We’ve fixed a goal of 200,000 for ourselves in the next two years. Help us meet that goal!

We hope readers take particular note of the essay in this issue by Harold O. J. Brown, in which he shows that neither evolution nor revolution is the true answer to the world’s needs. Brown speaks a clear word about what it means to be in the world and yet not of the world. We all need this counsel today.
