In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

THE EDITOR'S FENCE I. The Eighth ELT Conference: The Eighth ELT Conference, to be held in connection with the HLA meetings in New York in December, 1964, will concern "Rudyard Kipling-A Centenary Revaluation." No papers will be read in detail, though the authors of papers on Kipling, to be published in ELT, VII: 4 (1964) prior to the meeting, will be asked to present the highpoints of their theses. V/e shall be happy to consider for publication and discussion at the ELT Conference papers dealing with such work of Kipling that has not generally received serious attention and papers that re-examine his stature as a writer in the literary movements of the 1880-1920 period. The number of persons who can be admitted to the Conference is limited to about 35 by the MLA. Please apply to the Discussion leader, E. S. Lauterbach, Department of English, Purdue University, V/. Lafayette, Indiana 47907. 2. Research in Proqress--Delayed: Due to lack of space in this number, we omit the annual section of research in progress on ELT authors and subjects in any way related to the ELT period. V/e expect to include this department in the next number. However, we wish to take this opportunity to remind anyone supervising a Ph.D. Thesis in the ELT field or knowing of anyone who is engaged on a book in the ELT period to encourage the researcher to submit a working title and brief description of the project on a postcard addressed to Edward S. Lauterbach. Anyone wishing a project previously listed to be listed in succeeding numbers ts still in progress should renew the listing by the same means. Deadline this year is October 1. 3. ELT Special Series: We hope before the end of this calendar year to publish the first of a Special Series, HOOPDRIVER'S HOLIDAY, a play by H. G. Wells, edited with notes and introduction by Michael Timko. I terns in this series will be published at irregular intervals as appropriate material is made available to us. We plan to use this series to publish previously unpublished manuscript materials, plays, short stories, poems, letters, criticism, diaries and notebooks, rejected chapters in novels, and so on by ELT authors. V/e shall welcome contributions from anyone having access to such materials. We can normally give as much as 70-75 pages to single i terns and, occasionally, 100-120 pages. V/e are also prepared to make up such a special number out of a group of shorter pieces. For the time being and as long as it is economically possible, we shall mail i terns in the special series to regular paid subscribers as part of their subscription. Single copies, however, will be sold at 1.00 each. 4. Staff Changes: Miss Tate and Mrs. Pearson have completed the tenure of their appointment as graduate assistants. Both are to receive their M. A. degrees this Summer. Marie Tate will go on to the University of Washington in the Fall and Mai sie Pearson will become a full-time graduate student working toward the Ph.D. at Purdue University. Miss Carol Porter, a graduate of Thiel College, has been appointed a graduate assistant to our staff this Fall. We are also especially happy to add V/. Eugene Davis, of the Purdue English Department, to our staff as Assistant Editor. Gene Davis is preparing a bibliography of abstracts of writings about William Hale White ("Mark Rutherford") for us and he will help us maintain the continuing bibliographies as well as contribute his vigor to our more routine tasks. The slight expansion of our staff signifies a considerable expansion of our scope and, we hope, our greater thoroughness and usefulness. ELT continues to be the spare-time activity of four or five people who enjoy what they are doing. 5. Respite: This is the last number in which the Editor will have a major hand until Spring, I965. In the Fall I shall be on Sabbatical leave in order to complete the first volume of my book on George Moore. During my absence, ELT will be in the capable hands of Edward S. Lauterbach. He...
