For a host of reasons this edition of The Monovian has suffered serious delay., and inevitably will recall events and personalities of previous years rather than the usual reflection of the present. We trust, however, that the next issue will remedy this situation, Commercial production has been taken beyond our pocket by the effects of inflation. Rather than allow circumstances to defeat us it was felt that we should attempt to mobilise and utilise our own resources. This we have done with the able contribution of many with their time and talents. To all who have assisted must go our gratitude and thanks. Our experiences have shown that we can in the future expect quicker production. We hope too that we can expect to attract a greater number of contributors.
