11 THE EDITOR'S FENCE In 1963 when EFT became ELT I wrote a little sketch, under the heading "Five Years After," of the history and development of this Journal. ihe present change of format Is not sufficiently Important to warrant a "Ten Years After." We shall continue our established policy with only such minor changes as are necessitated by the new format. We shall continue to publish articles of all kinds on minor as well as major authors; we shall continue to give from one-fourth to one-half our total annual space to annotated bibliographies, primary and secondary . However, we must recognize some limitations: we can no longer publish such full-scale annotated bibliographies as the one on Klpllne;, which occupied 235 pages of Volume 3. nor such long articles as Robert Hogan's on Shaw's novels, which occupied about 51 pages of one number of Volume 8. We shall have an average of about 220 pages In each annual volume. Each number will contain 48 or 56 pages, although an occasional thicker number may be possible. We are now attempting to make arrangements for a series of book-length annotated bibliographies so that we can continue to publish, through a university press or private publishing firm, such full-scale projects as those on Maugham, Conrad and Hardy now under way. The change to jhoto-offset, our subscribers should know. Is not occasioned by our capitulation to mere appearance of professionalism. Our subscribers have rarely complained about the mimeographed format, for, like us, they have been more Interested In the contents than In the vehicle. The change to photo-offset has been occasioned by lack of time. My small staff and I can no longer manufacture ELT and at the same time continue to supervise the three or four major projects and some ten or twelve lesser ones now In preparation, edit all the work now In hand and that which flows In constantly, and fulfill all our other professional responsibilities. Photo-offset will nearly reduce the more menial tasks of producing ELT by half. The Increased rates necessarily resulted from conversion to a more costly process of reproduction and Increased costs of supplies. With the new rates we hope to remain self-supporting. We are not subsidized by any grants or endowments. We continue stubbornly to maintain that a scholarly Journal worth producing can be self-supporting. Our subscribers continue to provide evidence that our stubborness Is well founded. ANNOUNCEMENTS 1. Our staff: We regret that Edward S. Lauterbach, because of the pressures of other responsibilities, has found It advisable to resign Ill from our staff. After about eight years of association with ELT, he will be missed. Philip Armato, who has contributed much time and energy to ELT during the past year Is our new Assistant Editor. Bruce Woodford, whose poetry I have long enjoyed and whose Illustrations for his Love and Other Weathers (I966), published by Eastcate Press, are beautifully done, has designed our new cover and will occasionally provide decorations and Illustrations. 2. ELT anthologies: A three-volume series of anthologies under the series title English Literature In Transition will be published In August (advance copies In June) by Pegasus, A Division of Western Publishing Co., 70 Fifth Avenue, New York.
