On July 16 the Annual General Meeting of ARF was held, at which preprint copies of the first volume of the Bulletin of Advanced Reasoning and Knowledge were examined. It was decided that ARF should continue to produce BARK, with the next issue devoted to the proceedings of this third meeting. It was also decided that BARK would remain the journal of record of ARF, publishing at this time only proceedings of meetings and papers invited by members. The membership gratefully acknowledged the work of Carolyn Kemberger in copyediting the first volume, and requested her to continue that work for future issues.
