If you receive this issue in good time, it will mean two things. The first is that you have renewed your membership and are a member in good standing. Second, it will mean that a miracle has occurred and things are back on an even keel in the Canadian Post Office. As we go to press, the Post Office is completely shut down by labour problems and it looks as if the strike could be a long one. At present we have no idea how this issue will be distributed to our out-of-town members but we will do our best and will hope that it reaches you without too much delay. Unfortunately the lack of mail has cut off some of our best correspondents and you'll find the marine news section a bit skimpy this month.

Our meetings for the coming year have all been arranged and programs worked out but we still have a few openings for the 1976-77 season. It may seem that we are planning a long way in advance but we know the anxious moments that arise when a meeting date draws near with no speaker available. If you have ideas for a program or if you would like to address one of our meetings, please contact Gordon Turner.

In the New Member Department, a hearty welcome goes out to Dr. Paul Lavallee of Boucherville, Quebec, to Vince Sadler of Waterdown, Ontario, to William Hoey of Grosse Ile, Michigan, to Frank Crevier of Algonac, Michigan, and to Peter McIntosh and Capt. Bert Harris of Toronto.
