The Editors of The Grapevine feel that its readers and contributors are entitled to know the costs of putting the paper out. Our first issue cost $187.10 of which $86.00 went for the printing of 1200 copies; $79.38 paid for the masthead and the Alcoholics Anonymous cut, and $21.72 included postage, the Post Office box rent, mailing wrappers, etc. Since some of these costs are non-recurring (the masthead and the lettering for instance), and other costs will rise (postage and stationery, etc.) we estimate that future issues will probably run around $150.00 per issue. If the entire run of any issue sells out: 1. on a copy basis (15c)--revenue will be $180.00; 2. on a subscription basis (121/2c)--revenue will be $150.00. However about 600 copies of the first issue were distributed free, and free copies will continue to be sent to all service men and women whose addresses we can get.
