trimmed off and discarded. I think all of us are now aware that we
can no longer afford such waste. For that reason plus the fact that the
new size, 6" x 9", will result in savings for the Association of about
$2,000, the members voted at the annual meeting in March to go with
the smaller size. We believe you will like it.
You will also notice that Norman D. Brown, associate professor of
history at the University of Texas, Austin, is the new book review edi-

Robert A. Calvert, associate professor of history at Texas A&8M Uni-

historians from across the nation. He has done a splendid job with the

Texas State University; Sandra L. Myres, associate professor, Univer-
sity of Texas, Arlington; and Ralph A. Wooster, dean, College of Arts
and Sciences, Lamar University.
For years all of these board members and many other scholars have
critiqued manuscripts submitted to the Quarterly for publication. I
find it impossible to measure the value of the services they have ren-
dered, but their help has been great indeed, and they have made the
Quarterly a far better journal than it would otherwise have been.
The Junior Historian program made a great leap forward during the
past year, finishing the academic season with 16o chapters-26 more
than last year and 50 more than two years ago. Our goal for 1980-1981
is 200 chapters. The growth of the program was due in large part to
