Mr. liussell Lord 3ditor, The L,- nd .el Air, Maryland 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 anyone. 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 Assistant Professor
),tpz 26t 194 Dr. Harrison F. Lewis Departmant of Mines and 'esourcos Lands and Development Servioes 3ranah Ottawa, Ontario 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 -, JjAl tpM Joseph J. Hiekay Assistant "rofessor
