Dear Miss Addams:
The end of our fiscal or publishing year is just ten days off. The enclosed, which we are carrying in this week's issue, tells its own story. In spite of the difficulties of the past year, we have been making steady gains towards the thousand membership goal we set for Survey Associates four years ago. I have high confidence that we will enlist the remaining thirty $10 "Co-op's" in the remaining ten days. But we shall need to cash in our reserves of interest to do it.
So I am calling on members of the Board and National Council to help the staff in "putting it across" -- by asking each, if they possibly can do so, to get us one new [cooperating] subscription before the 30th.
