DICK JOHNSON REVIEWS THE CSNS CENTINEL

Dick Johnson writes: "The Centinel arrived last week.  That's
the Central States Numismatic Society's publication. It is filled
with news, articles, lots of photos and very clean typography.
It seems thicker than usual -- my goodness, it's 64 pages! (Great
job editor Rollie Finner! Take a bow!)

There's a new CSNS president, William Brandimore, a handful of
new board members, but hard-working Jerry Lebo is still secretary-
treasurer. I was most impressed with his report of nearly three
pages listing new member applications! That's an indication of a
hot organization -- hundreds of people wanting in (even with coin
club memberships falling off in other parts of the country).

I liked the article dead center in the magazine, it flips open
to "Tips for Safe Coin Show Travel." It's by Alan V. Weinberg, a
frequent contributor here in E-Sylum. I read the article to the
very end and found it was reprinted from E-Sylum!

There's an article of reminiscences by Cliff Mishler. He's got
time to write these now that he's unemployed. Come to think of it,
he wrote these when he was a major domo (and employed) at Krause
Publications. Keep it up, Cliff!

Central States has an excellent numismatic book program, called
"Library Support Program," where it will match funds up to $250
with local coin clubs to put our hobby books in local libraries.
We praised this program before in E-Sylum. I can't praise this
grant program enough and hope local clubs take advantage of this.

The CSNS logo was mentioned at the board meeting (no action taken).
This is a pet gripe of mine since 1957 when I was a CSNS board member
(and college student). I proposed that map logo with incorrect state
abbreviation (guess which one) be replaced with a more artistic
design. I suggested a paddle wheel riverboat indicative of history
of the area (no action taken). Maybe someday!

I haven't been to a CSNS convention in 20 years (curtailed travel),
but I cherish my life membership. And I look forward to every issue
of The Centinel."
