In several ways this Newsletter is it premier!
First of all it is the first Newsletter for which I could not rely on the extensive support of Dr. Sokoloff. You will remember that due to financial reasons we had to abandon Dr. Sokoloff’s careful editorship. This will probably mean, that the English will slightly deteriorate – but perhaps it may also unintentionally give you the chance of a laugh.
Secondly – and I hope that our American readers will have noticed this, we have now two locations for printing. For North and South America Bela Ranathy has taken over the printing of the Newsletter, using the same master as I do here in Linz to print for therest of the world. This should also enable our American readers to receive the Newsletter with less delay. It also saves a considerable amount of money!
Thirdly – and it is rather me myself who feels this difference, I have a new secretary, Ms. Dagmar Reinmann, which takes care of most of the typing and arranging which has gone into the Newsletter
Fourth: you can read this Newsletter via WWW! See the column “News from the IFSR” for more details.
Lastly it also means that I am obliged to acquire articles for the Newsletter more actively.
Remember, I am always looking for interesting contributions to fill the “New Trends” column and to provide information on past or future events.
