THE JUNIOR HISTORIAN
During the past year six numbers of the Junior Historian
were printed. The magazine is issued six times during the school
year, in September, November, December, January, March, and
May. The September number is sent to every high school in
Texas as an advertising and promotional measure. Of the Sep-
tember number 3,000 copies were printed; of the other five
numbers 2,ooo each were printed, making a total of 13,000 copies.
The cost of printing these 13,000 copies was $1,279.86 or

Junior Historian is also sent to Patrons, Sustaining and Life
Members without charge.
Total receipts from the Junior Historian for the past year

total receipt for the Junior Historian of $1,668.90o and a total
cost of $1,000.23, might cause one to think that the Junior
Historian movement is not making progress. Last year the Jun-
ior Historian movement made a profit to the Association of
$668.67. This year the Junior Historian movement lost $640.40.

year the Junior Historian received a substantial subsidy from
the Star Engraving Company. This year there was no subsidy.
Many of the five-year subscriptions were paid in the preceding
year. The actual number of paid subscribers, the number of
