                            EDITOR'S   COMMENTS


This issue is the first single issue of the Journal to appear in  five years, and
is a good bit lengthier than most  future issues will be. I am very pleased  that
it presents the Symposium on  Contemporary Issues in Voluntary Action, edited and
troduced by John D. Harman and  Richard C. Rich.

The Symposium on Contemporary  Issues was organized by Profs. Harman and Rich at
their home university, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State  University, and
presented as a conference in November  1980. Publication of  selected papers from
that conference has been greatly  assisted by support from the Center for Volun-
teer Development at Virginia Tech.  JVAR greatly appreciates  that support, and
thanks the able Director of the  Center, AVAS board member Delwyn A. Dyer, for
his commitment.

Harman and Rich fully  introduce their papers, so my comments can highlight
the contributions of  some of the many people who make JVAR work.  Two of
these are our previous Book  Review Editor, James C. Petersen, and his succes-
sor, Russell L. Curtis.   The work of Jim Petersen is gratefully acknowledged, and
and the energy and commitment of  Russell Curtis is evident as he tackles his
new task.  The reviews presented  in this issue are the first in his admin-
istration.

Further, Dean Walter K. Gordon  of the Rutgers University Camden College merits
my profound appreciation  for the support he provides JVAR.  This support has
facilitated our producing  9 issues in 18 months, and has permitted the editor
to attend conferences, use the  telephone when needed, and to call on such editori
assistance as required  to deliver the Journal promptly and accurately.  In a time
of fiscal retrenchment,  his sensitivity to the needs and importance of our work
in voluntary action  research is extraordinary.

Acknowledgements and  grateful thanks are also in order for Mrs.Ruby Fulk of
Boulder, Colorado, who  types the Journal with great accuracy, good cheer, and
promptness.  A  stipended volunteer to JVAR, Ruby Fulk contributes in the best
spirit of voluntary  action.

My thanks also to Phyllis  A. Padow, Editorial Associate to the Journal, and
Sandra Cheesman, who puts  everything together before the Journal is delivered
on to the  Transaction Periodical Consortium for final preparation and printing.
Each who  I have mentioned contributes much to the Journal, and I'm sure this
effort  is appreciated by all its readers.  It certainly helps make my job an
enjoyable one.
