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

EDITOR'S FENCE 1. Tenth Annual ELT Conference: New York, 1966: Pending MLA authorization, the ELT Conference being planned for the New York meetings of MLA will be on Thomas Hardy's poetry. The issue of ELT scheduled for publication in about November will be devoted to papers on Hardy's poetry. Those considering submitting papers should plan to mail them to our editorial office well before October so that there will be ample time for our readers to evaluate them and for us to prepare the accepted papers for publication. 2. New Rates—Photo-offset: 1967: We call our subscribers' attention to the announcement on p. i. We can now accept renewals for Volume 10 (1967) at the new rates. V/e shall be pleased to have such renewals as soon before December as possible so that we can make a reasonable estimate of our print order. We would like to avoid the problem we have been encountering recently of going out of print within a few months after a particular number has been mailed. To assure himself of an uninterrupted subscription, it will be well for the subscriber to renew for Volume 10 (1967) as soon as possible. 3. Thanks: We are grateful to our many readers who have for some nine years made it possible for ELT to remain very nearly self-supporting. VJe now have approximately 600 subscribers. We hope most of our old friends will continue to subscribe. We shall continue to publish articles of all kinds on major figures, we shall continue to give attention to minor writers, we shall continue to publish bibliographies of abstracts in depth. How much we can do and how well we do it will continue to depend in large measure on the interest of our subscribers and on their willingness to collaborate in the various projects on which we are engaged. ANNOUNCEMENTS 1. H. E. Gerber will be at Arlington State College, Arlington, Texas for eight weeks this summer as Visiting Professor and consultant on curriculum matters.
