The new year brought with it a change in staff. Our beloved publisher Wilbur Benedict began a much earned retirement January 1. His successor is David Rehmeyer, of whom mention was made in a previous editor’s note. Mr. Rehmeyer’s place in the advertising department has been assumed by Charles R. Wright, who comes to us from a varied career in other Christian organizations and brings another note of youth and enthusiasm to our staff. Mr. Wright is a graduate of Wesley College.

Donald Tinder, who came to us as assistant editor last July, has received notice that his dissertation for the doctorate has been accepted and that Yale University will formally grant him the Ph.D. in June. He also holds the B.A. from Yale and the B.D. from Fuller Seminary. Kudos to him!

At the U. S. Congress on Evangelism in Minneapolis last September I happened to mention that my birthday fell on December 22. Dr. Oswald C. J. Hoffmann, who chaired the meetings, commissioned the audience to note the fact and send me birthday cards. I can now report that because of his influence I found myself with far more birthday greetings than I had ever received before. To all those who were kind enough to remember my birthday I express my appreciation, and I again wish for them and all our readers a happy 1970.
