GAINS AND LOSSES
We realize that some don’t like to hear of anything except stamps and covers, and that is exactly why we spend so much time assembling this material for your pleasure. However, Danzig/Gdai1sk does exist and does furnish you with information that can’t he found elsewhere. Giles and the Professor have been supervising a group of university students in searching the Gdatsk Archives for English- Language material that will be of use to all of us. On July 27th, our “International Bunch” will be digg ing at the Archives for such subjects as what appears to be a Flak tower. Although none of our past guides has mentioned this monster that lurks about two blocks west of the old Polish post office on Hcvelius place. the telephone at that location did answer to the name of “Luftschutzhund”, according to the 1942 Danzig telephone book.

There were several losses that should be noted, since some of us have known the two men who have died since the last Report. Volker Erdwien, the Verbandsprüfer for Danzig, died last month at his home in Elze, Germany.

A particularly difficult loss was recently experienced by our group when it was revealed that one of our earliest rtiembers, Art Bradford, passed away very unexpectedly on February 14th. If you were at the last GPS convention last July in Minneapolis, you will remember the fellow who was thoroughly enjoying himself (in the black cowboy hat). Art, and his sidekick Linda, introduced the edir to the best bar-b-q ribs in the country. We had fun that evening, and Art said that he will be attending every GPS convention “from now on!” We’ll be expecting to get together again in Hunt Valley, Art. Just in case you don’t make it, you will be greatly missed, old timer.
