  2. Manuscript copies should be mailed flat, not rolled or folded.
  3. The author’s full name and address must appear immediately after the title on the paper.

Illustrations may be included as completely labeled sketches when the manuscript is first submitted. If the manuscript is accepted for publication, the author must provide final drawings in a form suitable for photographic reproduction, twice the size they will appear in the journal. Such drawing should preferably be professionally drafted, or should be drawn with India ink. Photographs, black and white only, should be sharp and glossy. Authors who do not comply with these requirements are advised that they will be recharged for artwork done by the printer. Indicate the placement of illustrations in the same manner as table placement.
