Bound Volumes Missing

In a recent 'VIO Calling, we bragged that the JPL library had the entire set of QST in bound form, from 1947 to the present. That encouraged member Gil Yanow, K6TOS to use this capability for some research he was doing. However, he soon discovered that Volumes 154 and 155 ( July thru Dec. 1970, and Jan. thru June 1971, respectively ) are mysteriously missing from our collection. Since the borrower Is most problably a JPL ham, Gil-hopes this newsletter appeal for the return of these volumes of QST to the library will be heard.    Thanks!
