 Please note: "should, " not "must." Sometimes it is simply not possible to 
 store scientifically significant fossil vertebrates in accordance with the 
 above specification (e.g., type specimen of Kakuru kujani). Why should this 
 prevent these specimens from being scientifically described?
  Either ask the executive committee at SVP or bring it up at the business 
meeting in Bozeman next fall. Dan Varner.
