It is always difficult to write a greeting for this issue of the Open Line Bulletin. You receive this in mid December, but it is being written in early October. It takes some effort and imagination to think in terms of being after the election, in the midst of a hectic holiday season not to mention what happened to the Hawks and where the bowl game is this year, if any. Suffice it to say our hope is that the election satisfied everyone, the holidays are a joyous time, and the Hawkeyes find themselves in Pasadena on New Years Day.

The highlight of our year was Eastern Iowa's favorite DJ contest on PH Magazine, which provided a terrific trip to New York, and tons of support from faithful WMT listeners. It's not possible to thank everyone enough for helping us win.

As the new year approaches, let's all strive to be kinder and more tolerant of each other in the future. Best to you an in 1985!
