Publication slightly delayed. The Publication Committee regrets to announce that the previously announced publication date of April 1 for the book, “Behold, He Cometh!” could not be met. We encountered some unavoidable delays with the printing and binding, due apparently to the fact that this is a busy season in those trades. As of this writing, the book is at the printing plant; but it appears that work will not be completed until some time in the first part of May. To those who placed their pre-publication orders we advise: Have patience!

Price Increase. The pressures of inflation have forced the Board of the R.F.P.A. to increase the subscription price of our Standard Bearer to $9.00 per year. Substantial increases in publishing costs at every level make this necessary. We trust that our readers will understand and will realize that at less than 50¢ per issue the Standard Bearer is still a good magazine bargain. Let me take this opportunity also to suggest and urge that our churches inflate their collections for the Standard Bearer.

Bound Volumes. Our Business Manager has informed me that bound volumes from now on will cost $8.00. This price increase is necessary because of increased costs of production and postage. Even at $8.00, of course, a 500-page volume is still a bargain. If you do not have a standing order for your bound volume and desire to obtain one, be sure to write promptly to our Business Office.

Subscription Price Increase. The Board of the RFPA informs me that effective March 1 the price of theStandard Bearer will increase to $8.00 per year ($6.00 for Australasian subscribers). This is an increase of $1.00 since October, 1968. We have no excuses, only reasons. Frankly, this increase is unrealistic: it does not even keep up with inflation (which since 1968 would have meant a 100% increase) or with legitimate increased costs of production. We have no qualms, therefore; nor have we any fears that our subscribers will forsake us because of this small increase.

Correction. A rather serious mistake crept into one of my editorials in the October 1 issue. The last sentence in the first full paragraph in column 2 on page 7 should read: Does he not know that long before they returned to the CRC, we predicted that they would do so notbecause of a doctrine of particular grace that could not be preached, but because of a doctrine of grace which was principally Arminian, on account of which De Wolf was disciplined and for which his group left the PRC?

Volume 51 began with our October 1 issue. You probably have already noticed one of the changes for this volume-year—in the Meditation department; and there are a couple more. First of all, the Meditationdepartment this year will be shared by Rev. C. Hanko, Rev. M. Schipper, and Rev. H. Veldman. A second change will be the dropping of the departmentContending for the Faith for the time being—as soon as the current supply of articles for this department which I have on hand is exhausted.

Elsewhere in this issue you will find an article from the pen of Dr. John R. de Witt, of Kingstree, South Carolina. The reader will recall that some months ago Dr. de Witt wrote two articles for our magazine on “The Crisis in the Southern Presbyterian Church.” These articles brought a critical response from Dr. James Daane in a recent issue of the Reformed Journal. Upon noticing said response, I invited Dr. de Witt to reply if he saw fit to do so. Our readers will understand, I am sure, that placement of Dr.
