To the Editor.—
We would all like to send out our reprints. However, the costs of postage, the mailing materials, and the reprints have risen like many things. When one receives a postcard asking for a reprint, I wonder if the sender deserves one.There are definite reprint violators. There are now duplicators in doctor and hospital offices which could give these extra copies.I often ask, Why doesn't the postcard sender subscribe to the Archives? It is cheaper to ask for ten articles at 5 cents a postcard, then to buy a journal at $1.
