NO MORE BACK-ISSUE BONANZAS!--By Father David       6 May 1980       DFO No.903.

       1. THE BACK ISSUES OF OUR FAMILY NEWS MAGAZINE for any reason whatsoever will now be sent to you only for a minimum gift of $10 a copy DFOs or $15 a copy DOs -- cash with each order. No cash, no Mag! Sorry, but we've warned you before.

       2. WE CANNOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR MISSED MAGS, & you cannot sneak back issues cheaper than anybody else merely for the postage! If you don't want to give to God's Work what it's worth & receive your Mags like everybody else for an IRF minimum donation of $20 for 2 Mags a month or a TRF 10% tithe of your total income, then we're certainly not going to send you back issues for nothing but the postage!

       3. HOW DO WE KNOW WHO YOU ARE OR WHAT YOU ARE unless we have you on our records that you gave your full month's donation or tithed for the month of the Mag you request? Anybody could write in--even our enemies--and request back issues for nothing but the postage, & this would be extremely unfair to those who give their fair share to support God's Work & thereby deserve to receive every single Mag.

       4. THAT'S THE MINIMUM THAT IT COSTS US TO PRODUCE THEM & SEND THEM TO YOU!--And anything above that goes to help support our worldwide missionary work of 41 W.S. Units throughout the world with nearly 250 full-time W.S. Workers! Why should you get'm almost free by merely writing in for back issues?

       5. BACK ISSUES OF PREMAG INDIVIDUAL SEPARATE LETTERS OR KOMIX will be sent to you only for a minimum donation of $2 a piece--if we still have them!--If not, thanks anyhow for your gift to His Work! The same goes for back issue Mags: If we've got'm, we'll send'm, if you send the above minimum donations. If not, we can't send'm--but thanks anyhow for your donation.

       6. WE WILL NOT SEND INDIVIDUAL LETTERS OR KOMIX OR ARTICLES WHICH APPEARED IN MAG FORM! Sorry--you'll have to order the whole Magazine!--Otherwise, wait for the Books someday & get'm all DOs & DFOs both!--And you can read history after it has already happened instead of prophecies of the future!--That is, if you & your country are still around!

       7. SORRY! NO MORE SNEAKING OUR MAGAZINES OUT THE BACK-ISSUE DOOR FOR ALMOST NOTHING when others are giving their fair share out front!--End of Back-Issue Bonanzas!
