Editor's Note

     Thanks to an and-of-the-year outpouring of reader
support, CrossRoads' 1993 Fund Drive finished up on a high
note. We exceeded our goal of 200 sustainers, with the
current count up to 206. We also reached 85 percent of our
$30,000 cash donation target. Gains in circulation were not
as much as we had hoped, but our readership did grow
slightly from the previous year: subscriptions and single-
copy sales now total over 2,500 per issue.
     Considering the difficult times facing the left and all
its institutions, we are quite encouraged by these results.
We may not have completely "Crossed the Threshold" (our 1993
campaign theme), but we did get at least one foot over the
doorstep. Though we'll still have to scramble for some extra
funds to carry through on plans to promote CrossRoads even
more widely, our minimal financial needs are secured for
1994. Many thanks and deep appreciation to all of you who
pitched in so generously to make this possible.
