We've raised steam, pulled up the hook and rung down for Full Ahead as with this issue we kick off the ninth volume of our little publication. Seems hard to believe that we have been putting out "Scanner" for so long (eight of those years with Ye Ed at the helm) but we have and we should like to thank all our members who have kept us supplied with the news, articles (we still need more to keep us from having permanent writer's cramp) and the odd bit of moral encouragement. Without the help of those who take the time to write, even if we can't always get the chance to write a personal reply, we would have packed this in and retired to the cucumber patch long ago.

If you are one of those who have not yet sent us their membership dues, draw nigh and listen carefully. Membership fees are now due and payable and we will not be sending individual notices of this fact. This is the last issue that will be sent to those who have not renewed, so please be sure to send us $10.00 in Canadian Funds (or the equivalent bearing in mind the rate of exchange on U.S. Funds) as soon as possible. Please address our Treasurer, James M. Kidd, 83 Humberview Road, Toronto, Ontario, M6S 1W9. He's waiting to hear from you.

In the New Member Department, a hearty welcome goes out to Doug Cross of Port Colborne, to Bob Welnetz of Manitowoc, to Allan Mann of Wallaceburg and to Alain M. Gindroz of Dorval, Quebec.
