For the past 12 years in my Real Estate business, I have used "Too Late" on my signs to indicate that a property was sold. I hoped that this gentle hint might encourage prospective buyers to act a little more promptly, and not be "Too Late" in selecting a home they really wanted.
I wish I could think of a similar phrase to activate the Traction Fans, who keep putting off sending in their names and orders for TFD, and who put off subscribing to the forthcoming "Traction & Models" Monthly Magazine. I personally know several fans whose names are not listed in this issue of TFD, simply because they did not let me know that they wanted them listed by returning the registration blank. Why not send in the blank included with this book right away, while you think of it, so that you will be sure to be included in the next issue? And while you are thinking, your subscription to "Traction & Models" may be too late now to receive the first issue, and certainly is too late to guarantee a really big magazine for the first issue.
Many have asked us how we expect to get a regular monthly publication together each and every month on time, when it has taken about 2 years for this issue of TFD, which originally was intended as TFD'63, then TFD'64 and now appears as TFD'65. If "T&M" creates sufficient interest and grows with each issue, we will not be faced with the task of contacting the individual fans each month, as a subscription list will provide 12 months of mailing, so that we can concentrate on editorial copy etc, rather than engaging in correspondence with the individual fans. This alone will cure 90% of the reasons why TFD and other publications are late. The other 10% will be cured with an arrangement to pay our publisher regular printing prices, which also includes promptness, unlike our present arrangement which allows the printer to run our books in his non-productive time, which, of course is less expensive, and gives us more for the money which is passed along to the readers and advertisers in the tom of lower costs.
As in the past, we feel well paid by receiving letters and articles and photos from you, the readers of TFD. Your comments and suggestions help guide us in our next issue. And we especially solicit your thinking and material for including in early issues of "Traction & Models". Will you help us? Let me know as soon as possible.
