Dear Mr. Lord:
I feel distinctly embarrassed to renort that the volu~m
'ame Iaaement, reviewed in this mummer's is ue of Teg
i. n'd could hardly have been"one of Dr. Leopold's lst
w" 'v", because it was actually nublished in 1933. The
volume that Ir. !immons handlend apparently was a recent
-rinting, which unloubteIly contained the information that
the boo' was first printed and copyrirhted fifteen years
earlier. This small oversight could, of course, havpen to
May I in the most friendl; and sincere manner poseible
ruggest that your mag-azine is doinp a splendid iob in a
most difficult and co-lx field. I' you could possibly
use as consultants scienttsts in various fields, I am
were that sliAs of this kind could be avoided in the
future. I know that I would be glad to check the accuracy
of materials you print in the field of iildlife management,
and that T would be willinp to do so without credit or
compensation. There undoubtedly are many others in the
Washinrto wrea who wiould 'be ' led to Prform a livke service.
!leas acceot i best wishes for an increasing nirculation.
Sincerely yours,
JJutpm                                Joseph J. Hickey

Dear Dr. Lewisz
Va very mnch appreoiate receiving your letter of
May 20 with the two prints of Professor Leopold.
I am taking the liberty of sending one of these
to Mrs. Leopold and retaining the other in our
illes. It is certainly a most intereatitag piotar.
I am atill wincing from the pain of looking thugh
the A-ril Auk, which  ik0e many of its recent prede-
essore, is a disoredit to liorth Ameo an ornithology.
It does seem to me that the only w.y we can get good
editin. in our field is to let our editors-in-chief
be maaing e4itors with a team of assistants. So
ranch of the Vti is nowr wordy. and aVnenses of publica-
tion are atIhg-vo stedily that I don't see how we
can retain the co fortabla fNea of delegating val
the editorial work to one man. The blame for this
situation is not Mr. Zimer's. It falls on every
one of us for eanitting it to exist.
Sineorely you -,
