A Bit of Tit-For-Tat

From the January/February issue of Chatter Boxes, a Star Trek: TOS Leonard Nimoy newsletter:

Richard Schultz, editor of EN GARDE, a fanzine devoted to THE AVENGERS, writes that he is beginning a campaign to get ABC to give THE AVENGERS a tine change and all AVENGERS fans are urged to write to Richard to request a copy of his project letter of information and petition. His readers helped us last year in our "Save Star Trek" campaign and it would be nice to be able to return the favor! Please send a long stamped, self-addressed envelope when writing to him.
