NOTES AND NEWS
New Editors

With this issue, a new editorial team has taken charge of the Journal, following their appointment at the November 1983 meeting of Council. Dr Ross Clark is Senior Lecturer in Linguistics in the Department of Anthropology, University of Auckland, and was previously Review Editor (1976-9). His main research interests are in the languages of central Vanuatu and pidgin and creole languages of the South Pacific. Dr Judith Huntsman, who was previously Editor from 1975 to 1980, is Senior Lecturer in Social Anthropology. Her continuing research involvement is with the past, present and future of Tokelau people, both as atoll dwellers and as New Zealanders. The new Review Editor is Dr Julie Park, Honorary Research Fellow in the same department. Her research focuses on New Zealand society.

March Council Meeting

At the meeting of the Council of the Polynesian Society in Wellington on March 12, 1984, Mr Pat Snedden of Auckland retired as Treasurer after three years in the position. The Council expressed its appreciation to Mr Snedden for his service to the Society. Ms Valerie Green of Auckland was appointed by Council as the Society's new Treasurer.

Offprints of Reviews

Beginning with this issue, contributors of reviews to the Journal will no longer be sent offprints of their contributions. Increased postal costs and the mechanical inconvenience of producing offprints are the reasons for this decision. The general availability of photocopiers now makes it easy for authors to produce copies of their reviews at negligible cost if they wish. Contributors of articles will continue to receive 20 copies.
