Due to an editing error, the Kellie Cannon Memorial Scholarship was incorrectly listed as being for $1,200 in the January issue of "The Braille Forum." It should have read $1,000.
The abreviation DLA in "Here and There" (December 1996) was improperly delineated as the Department of Labor. In fact, we should have referred to DLA as the Defense Logistics Agency.
