EDITORIAL COMMENTWinwick is a strange beast, you can question its very right to exist without apparently adding to the wrinkles on its brow. On the other hand - before you tickle its ribs, make sure you know of a safe hole to go to. Holidays happen even to the Publications Committee of The Standard. For the next fortnight 'on duty' are:-

W/C 20.8.73 Messrs. McKendrick, Naylor, and Tabener
