about ^ circumstances surrounding Ray Bauer's rise and fail as assistant Board- 
^ Custodian; the tot draft ran fifteen double-spaced, had to be expand- 

ed, md was written xn the most turbid. prosa-IWe ever written* I didn't think t 
could writ© that badly* : 

just : clear up^a, few facts. In a letter to von Metzfe, published in 
POUCH, I stated John Beshara and Hay H 0U er had' mt^ca a number of occasions*, 1W 
had met ence, at a party thrown by John Boardraan in June or My. and afterwards 
Beshara atlU could not refenbe* Ray, ^ - # . 

Finally, it has been related^ on two separate occasions^ by Ray Beuer and Nick 
Ulanor, spoaicifc* from tn£ onaatloa f?ptten from von Metako, on which he based his de- 
cision to cut Hay oat ot ^ ^^q^ {yoii ma wifct I meant by * turgid* , eh?), to tho 
effect that Walt Buchanan had told von Itetake iohn Beahara had said ne would have 
control of Ray* Teniae ^ettinj» it fourthhand. 

The statement, however, is p^tentO^ ridiculous. It Beshara controlled Ray and 
wanted him to take over tho Numbers, it wcU34 ' W an act of insanity to have said that. 
True, he Eiifftt be drunk, but would youi>ell6Ve a drunk isfcf'the oa3y possibility is 
one of the people in the -various ohaina Syfcv** seems to be no purpose in Hick 

or Ray lyinec, and these t^repari <faufo& seemed i^enuinely upset, That loaves Walt 
Buchanan. ; 

While it is still beyond me why anyone would want to run ttie Boardraan Numbers, 
Ray Heuer did want them, and Conrad accepted him and told his he had the job, 2hen 
Conrad reneged* Ray is a friend of n&na* and of Gil He$ger*s and of Scott Rosenberg 1 ? 
That is why we are protesting the nusiber done on BaysBecause we are his friends, 

t*d also like to note the f&ct John Beshara 1$ a*»ain beinf* wide The Adversary by 
various people in £0* 1 s ruling aadstoeraey. Totally undeservedly, but some dogs will 
always salivate when the bell is run?;, 

Ifis£2y, let rae note the Sew Tork fiity ;ium6r Mill has; ieen pretty accurate. It

Today I received a new sine, SBTIEF (named after Keith Lauirrer's galactic Diplo- 
mat, and thus" one of the cleverest titles since *The Double -Handed Pushbrooffll*). 
This thin^le ca\ao from Britain with a request for trade privclcgos?* 

The, first thins that struck joe about this 'British /ine (and, indeed^ the cthe^ 
X receive^ M 1$C1 and all that,.*") is its beauty. In the t^S* the excuse is offerod 
that a dipzine can not be as ne* as an sf zine because the dipaine must meet a 
deadline* Well, the -British give the lie to that* "Retief" and "1901*. look as ^ 
if they've been professionally itdmeoed. They do a better Job than John Bayer's opu 
Perhaps this is a natter of money spent (if I had been willing or able to buy a 
$250 ndmeo machine I could *>et perfect results), but I think not. The British are 
not (or don't seem to be, anyway) impressed by quantity as we nre in North ^raerica 
but strive for quality rat&er than a Iarf*c circulation, It ! s a very humbling 
thought to realise that I couldn't turn guv a sine so error-froe and beautiful as 
this third issuo of "Hctief 11 , yet on tfw last pa*»e there is an apoloj^r for the 

slcppiness of this Ibsug* . - 

Fellow North American publishers; we havp lost our predorrdnanco in the field - 
If the British took the Charier Awards this year by bloc- vrtinr;, it my nave 
been unfair, but the British deserved to win. Wo ere now tr Z. Lot us catch up* 
Eye the way, CraiR, happy to trade*

flhen the IDA nominations came out, I saw I had boon nominated for both Editor 
and At-Large Secretary. I -was p;oins to run for Editor, against Gil Noiger, but I 
discovered Gordon Anderson -was running Gordon is/was editor of El Conquistador a 
one of the new offset Bines.( nothing new, reallyj EG /#/6-8 wore printed offset) and 
had run DipCon this year*, Since then, however^ ho has droppod 1 out of si^ht, leaving 
a #reat many people, sitting after having paid $8 gamefces. Sinire it soened to me 
that, with a probable split, in votes between Gil and myself, Gordom might be able 
to sneak in, and I didn't want.this^ I declined this nomination* I ur^e all IDA 
members to vote for Gg.1 Neij»er<> In his production of THE POUCH he has shown himself 
to be competent to run X£i» as much as anyone can demonstrate that without doinf* it# 
That out of the -way, I decided to run f or AV-Lar^e Secretary^ 
Yes, I am a member of Mxd I am running becauo-o I feel it ia possible to 
break up the selfish interests which have dominated the IDA. Council and led to my 
disi llus ioumen t earlier this year. 

As to my policy, I view the At~Largo Secretaries as representing all IDA Members, 
ia addition to the representation **iven\by the Hegional Secretaries, I am r:oitx£ in- 
to the election with a tab^a- ^tsfi as- far as. $ol4£y goes? If elected, I shall try 
my damnedest to increase- the services off ore'dT and supported by the lf&(if they are 
worthwhile ) □ 

Those of you who have known me for the 3i years I*ve been in the hobby know I 
do not take on responsibilities and then not perform them, I have never missed a 
set of moves in playing a j^amej I have never missed a deadline in. publishing "this 
zinc. I believe I can do a good job. If you think so too, I hope you will vote for
