Franz Oehrlein Lives!
By Hans van Oost

Dear MMD'ers,  This is to inform you that Mr. Franz Oehrlein, of
Mainz in Germany, is currently alive and in good health.  He was
unjustly reported as deceased in the latest issue of the Dutch magazine,
"Het Pierement", due to the fact that a trusted member had reported his
death without further investigation.  The KDV committee would like to
express its regret for causing this sad misunderstanding and hopes that
this will be the first and last time this happens.

Kind regards from the Netherlands,
Dr. Hans van Oost, webmaster KDV

 [ Oehrlein makes fabulous recreations of crank organs and autotomata,
