In this issue we pay tribute to our dear friend Addison H. Leitch, who has joined the innumerable company of departed saints.

We welcome to our company of editors-at-large Calvin Linton, who is professor of English literature and dean of Columbian College of Arts and Sciences at George Washington University.

I would appreciate the special prayers of our readers for two things. First, the paper supply problem. The mill that produces our paper is on strike. If it is not ended quickly we may have to switch to less satisfactory paper for a while.

The second request has a familiar ring. We are caught in the inflationary spiral. Postage, paper, printing, and typesetting costs are rising at a rate that makes our heads spin. I covet your prayers asking God to undertake for us in a special way.
