Editor's Notes


We are presently considering the feasibility of expanding REASON into a general format high-quality magazine with a printed interior and perhaps twice as many pages. Readers interested in aiding such a venture should contact us immediately. Some helpful skills and services would include, writing, editing, research, finance, law, promotion, advertising, art, photography, and printing. In addition to the organization of the required skills, a prerequisite to such expansion would be enough subscription revenue to cover the added production costs. Readers could help here by sending in the names and addresses of several friends likely to subscribe if sent a complimentary copy.

• Clipping service; Beginning with next issue, the editor will pay up to four dollars for clippings used here. Readers are invited to send in clippings on any subject they believe of value.

• Complimentary copies; Should you wish us to send complimentary copies of this issue to friends, simply send us their names and addresses.

• Back issues of REASON are available from Oct. 68 (NO. 4 on for 25$ each. A set of all five (4-8) is priced at only $1.

• Correspondents wanted: if you desire to act as a correspondent for this publication, please write the editor for details concerning required functions and qualifications. Payment will be made for all items used.

The March 10, 1969 issue of U.S. News contains an article about student groups in opposition to the New Left at the Madison campus of the University of Wisconsin. Prominently quoted are leaders of the Objectivist-oriented Committee to Defend Individual Rights at that campus. Readers wishing to contact the group can write; CDIR, P.O. Box 807, Madison, Wisconsin, 53703. Phone: 251-0424.

Late note; Congressional efforts to end the draft appear to be floundering. Howard Katz, of the Association for a Volunteer Army, suggests a letter-writing campaign to Senator Hatfield (c/o Capitol Hill, Wash., D.C.), sponsor of the volunteer army bill. Student groups desiring details of how to launch a campus campaign can write AVA, c/o Howard Katz, 85-4th Ave., Apt 6m, NYC 10003.
