Hogan, Jeff Schwartz, and Ellen Schwartz and also includes artwork from Jean Segaloff.  This issue contains fifty-two pages, held together by two stapes.  The inside cover contains a table of contents with the type of writing followed by the authors and page numbers associated under that category.

This issue has two essays, the first is titled “Corliss, Master of Power” by Frank J. Jones.  This brief piece offers a point of view into mechanical engineer, George H. Corliss’ power and public influence due to his invention, the steam engine in the mid-1800s.  The next essay, “Winning in the Sierras” by Robie Darche, is a bit longer.  It discusses the position of women in casinos as changegirls and cocktail waitresses, with discussion of keymen as well.  Another version of this piece is also found in Canadian Woman’s magazine, Branching Out.

Some brief works of fiction are included such as “Paradise”, by Gudanowska and “Karla in the Dark”, by Bettina Barrett.  Politics include “Bureaucracy, Reform, and Intervention in Czechoslovakia”. This is by George Shaw Wheeler, Lawrence Hill & Co, and focuses on events during 1968, including the goals of Czechoslovakian reformers and economics.

Welcome! I am an Elementary Education and American Studies major at Keene State College. I believe that the two majors complement each other nicely as American Studies broadens perspectives, teaches history, and enhances reading and writing skills- all important in the classroom. I love the wonder and amazement found in young students and am looking forward to contributing to the development of their lives. Although I can't wait to be in the classroom full time, traveling first is high priority. Ideally, I will attain a masters degree in California (or just move out there for the heck of it).
