When we take telephone orders for pH pens at the office, we try to get an idea of what the pens are going to be used for, because this helps us understand the market and often gives us interesting or unexpected information.

Our question sometimes catches the caller off guard, as it did a couple of weeks ago, when the clerk replied that the pens would be used on laser paper, "to make sure it's not assinine--or whatever you call it."


On the front page of the last issue, in the item about recycled alkaline paper in Canada, two figures were accidentally switched, giving the impression that recycled paper is easier to make in Canada than the U.S. What it should have said is: "A paper that is 55% recycled by Canadian standards would be 70% recycled by U.S. standards, because Canadian percentages are figured on the weight of the paper, not the weight of the total fiber, as in the U.S."

The Alkaline Paper Advocate is issued six times a year and has about 500 subscribers. Subscriptions (which include a free pH pen) are on a calendar year basis: All start with the first issue of the year, unless otherwise requested, and end on Dec. 31, or after the last issue of the year has appeared. An index for the year is sent out in the first quarter. Individual subscriptions, and uncomplicated subscriptions from institutions, are $30; full-time students $20; others $40. All issues are in print and indexed. Checks should be made out to Abbey Publications, 320 E. Center St., Provo, UT 84606.

No paid advertisements are accepted, except for job ads, but anything with news value will be printed if there is room for it. News items and information may be sent or called in at any time. Readers are encouraged to copy or circulate issues and parts of issues, and to reprint unsigned articles and news items; but the Editor's permission must be obtained for reprinting lengthy or signed articles.

Indexed selectively in the Abstract Bulletin of the IPST, Graphic Arts Literature Abstracts, Paper and Board Abstracts (PIRA International) and Art & Archaeology Technical Abstracts.
