In Reply.—I would categorize Dr Mehl as a "pseudoripper." He neither tears a page nor duplicates an article. His system requires that he peruse his topic files in the same location where he keeps his bound journals. I prefer to live more simply. For me, libraries look after the "future" and "lesser articles." His system, however, should be of interest to others who want it both ways.
