The Handbook for 1953 is the 45th issue and its circulation is 5000. The Officers of the Society appreciate the increase in advertisements which will help to meet our mounting expense.

The range now covers the latitudes of all the centres.
The Handbook for 1952 is the 44th issue. Its present circulation is 5000 which we hope will be materially increased in order to meet our mounting expense.
