    Thanks for that tip George.  I gave it a whirl but when I tried to open up the 
    abstracts for the pre-1963 papers, I get an "invalid request" message.
    
    But here's the real catch: those PDF downloads that are available, cost $25.  
    I suppose if you only want to see one paper, you can spring for the cost. But 
    there are about two or three dozen papers from earlier eras that I would love 
    to see but simply cannot afford to download (even if they were available) for 
    25 bucks a pop.
    
    Tough break really because, as I mentioned in my previous note, there have 
    been a lot of very interesting papers published in ION that I would love to 
    see.
    
    Robert
