Better Reader Service Since August 1943 FIRE ENGINEERING has been published on the 15th day of the current month of issue. This method of production has been satisfactory over the 17 year period until very recently. However, prompt delivery of each issue to our readers has now become a problem. As announced in the October 1960 issue FIRE ENGINEERING will take steps to correct this situation. Effective with the January 1961 issue, the publication date will lie advanced to the first of each month. It is our sincere hope that the change will be for the better to all concerned. Our sole aim in taking this action is to provide our readers and advertisers the best service possible.
