Could I recommend that Miklops Kontra, who is in the country and coming to

with the preservation of Hungarian (and anti-Hungarian laws) outside
Hungary. It would fit nicely with our endangerment program and would not
require any program shuffling. I am sure he can be recruited.
Just a suggestion.

Is anyone planning to bring a tape recorder to the ADS annual meeting in
Chicago next week?
If it is a recorder with decent sound quality and volume to use in a medium
sized meeting room, I would like to borrow it to use with Sali Tagliamonte
and Shana Poplack's paper Friday afternoon, Dec. 29, approx 4:45 to 5:05 pm.
They are the only ones who have requested this particular kind of AV
equipment, and we could save trouble and expense by borrowing one you happen
In return for the savings, you'd get a FREE LUNCH at our annual luncheon
Saturday the 30th, Virginia McDavid speaking.
You can reply directly to me AAllan[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]aol.com rather than the whole list.
One cancellation to our program, by the way: Silke Van Ness will not be able
to attend to give her talk on Pennsylvania German at 3:30 pm Friday the 29th.
So the schedule for other talks may be adjusted slightly.
See you all in Chicago, I hope! - Allan Metcalf, ADS executive secretary
