Volume III of DARE will have an entry for "lavatory," but unfortunately only for variant pronunciations of the term. We had 79 responses in answer to the question about names for indoor toilets, but they were pretty widely scattered. Perhaps we could have made a case that the term is less frequent in the western part of the Midland, but it was pretty tenuous, so we left it out. Sorry. Joan Hall
