This is great!  I had not known it had been done.  This is handy despite 
the fact that both Leah and I have nearly complete sets (we are both 
missing one issue --unfortunately the same one!   I know my copy has to 
be around here somewhere!

To the contrary, we practically gave away tons of back issues just three 
years ago.  We had been paying storage fees for these for decades, and 
when they had to be moved from Ohio to Maryland, ARSC held a HUGE sale 
at true bargain prices.  That is how we compiled a second set for Leah, 
but unfortunately one of the cartons never got delivered and I had to 
complete her set from duplicates I had gotten years ago during my 
Presidency and from the estate of Steve Cisler.  That's why one copy is 
missing from both of us, I couldn't even find my own copy in the jumble 
around here, and there were supposed to be two copies of that issue in 
the box that never got delivered.   (Actually she is also missing Vol 1 
No 1 because I couldn't give her my duplicate because I have only one 
copy of each of the two printings.  One has a cover with blue printing 
and one with black.  I think it is the only issue we ever reprinted.  
I've been meaning to get a photocopy to her.)
