Elsewhere in this issue you will find an announcement of the inauguration of Canon Press, our new book-publishing arm. The magazine is our first interest and will continue to be so. But books can do at length what magazines can do in brief. We hope CHRISTIANITY TODAY readers, will look for—and buy—books with the Canon imprint.

As vigorous people often do, Dr. C. Ralston Smith, who has served us as director of development and assistant to the publisher, has retired and taken on a challenging new position. He will be working for the Billy Graham organization, and we wish him many years of useful service there. Before joining our staff Dr. Smith was minister of the First Presbyterian Church of Oklahoma City for eighteen years.

One of our contributing editors, General William K. Harrison, Jr., was honored at a testimonial dinner of the Officers Christian Fellowship, of which he is president emeritus. History will long remember General Harrison for his labors as negotiator of the Korean peace truce in the fifties. Kudos to a good friend and a great Christian.

Our board member Robert J. Lamont has been pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of Pittsburgh for almost two decades. He and his congregation celebrated the church’s 200th anniversary April 9. Dr. Lamont is president-elect of the Presbyterian Ministers Fund.
