I am surprised it took you so long. I was going to say you gave me kidney
stones, but I couldn't figure out how to work that in there.

	We are continuing to make progress in our effort to have a
successful BELL Program in Ohio. We now have at least five students who have
applied. Please help us spread the word to recruit children ages four to
twelve. We will also be conducting a seminar for all parents of blind
children at the end of the program regardless of whether or not their
children have participated in the BELL Program. We still need funding for
BELL. If your chapter or division has not made a contribution in support of
BELL please consider doing so immediately. 
	Next Thursday I will have kidney stone surgery once again. But I
will continue working hard for our movement until then, and I will be ready
for our board meeting on Saturday.
