 For the numerous people who, like myself, have been trying to get a copy of
"Pitts Specials," here is an update from Budd Davisson.  I have just called
the editor to make my request, and I suggest that you do as well.  The more
calls they get, the better our chances of finally getting hold of the book
(and even getting it updated).
