A Thank-you to Supporters

In 1990, our donor categories will be streamlined to simplify operations. They will be based only on the amount donated over and above the subscription fee, and will be considered to be made to Abbey Publications, Inc., rather than to an individual newsletter. This will reflect the intentions of most of the donors, we believe.

The new categories are:

Contributor: $25 and over
Patron: $100 and over
Sponsor: $500 and over

Donations for 1990 now total $170. Donors are:


M. Susan Barger
Julia Miller
D.H. Smith


In the July issue, in a commentary on a RAMP study by Thomas Parker, the Editor questioned whether roaches were attracted to light. In fact some species are definitely attracted to light, and it helps to turn out the lights around a building if you want to discourage them from entering the building. One such species is the flying Asian cockroach now busy invading Florida.
