    NOTES: from the_ editor ... _ Official Publication of the United States G mnastics Federation MG Publications: From time to time we h-ave published

    programs, posters, pamphlets and other reports from our MG offices as a service to our readers and to help in our aim to stimulate interest in Gymnastics. Just re-cently we published two such items we would especially like to bring to your attention.

    First, the NACGC Highlights in Review, a stimulating review of 1966-67 Gymnastic action, competition results and photos from across the nation. Edited by Jerry Wright who masterfully put together all of the major College and University Conference, Regional and Na-tional Championship results for the year under one cover. Jerry has also included the top Invitational and Open meets plus a listing of All Time Records, most Team Championships, most individual event wins for a year, for a career, Honor Awards, All-American Team etc. A wonderful Photo Statistic Treasure for every Coach and Gymnast. (Just a dollar for all this). Next, in keeping with the demand for instructional aids, we compiled the recent MG series, Let's Teach Routines by Dr. William J. Vincent into one pamphlet for use in the classroom. Coaches and P.E. Instructors should find this work very handy, and it sells for just one dollar (with discounts up to 50 % for large orders when used as a classroom text).

    More: We mention the above MG publications because if they are well received by our readers (in sales) we will be in a position to publish many more works of this type. Art Shurlock's series of Let's Go AII-Aroun". Dr. Bosco's Research and Fitness in Gymnastics, Jim Farkas's Helpful Hints, etc., are just a few examples of material on hand that can be put in pamphlet form

    MG Schedule: Many times in past years, edit ions of the MG have been held up while we wait for articles that we had planned on for that edition, but due to mailing service or lack of communication did not arrive No matter how good our intentions this is a disservice to our MG readers. In the future we will go to press even if some of our planned materials have not arrived.

    Beware: the MG Interview may Strike anywhere at anytime, Co~ ches , Judges, Gymnasts or ???, nobody's safe . .. who knows you may be Next!
