Letters to the Editor
In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

Letters to the Editor ville, Ky., has set up in a central location at the Lexington, Ky. airport an information booth for deaf people. The enclosed booth has a glass door/window which reveals a screen. On half of the screen there runs a text giving information about ticketing, reservations, baggage, and so on. The other half of the screen shows a life-size man presenting the text in sign language. Letters to the Editor To the Editor: I have been asked by a teacher of deaf children in East Africa if I can help her and her colleagues obtain secondhand copies of books of professional subjects such as speech, language development , and auditory training. I wonder whether any readers of your journal would be willing to donate texbooks which, though not out of date, are nevertheless surplus to their requirements. I believe there are many teachers in underdeveloped countries who would greatly appreciate such a gesture and would put such texts to good use. It would be very helpful if donors were willing to contribute the cost of postage, as most of the recipients will tend to find it impossible to do so. If your readers can spare any books, I should be happy to receive a letter listing books by author, title, edition, etc. (not the books themselves , please!), and to coordinate the selection of recipients and shipment details.
