Polish school needs physics and computer labs
Queen Jadwiga Academy, a senior high school run by the Servants of Mary in Przysucha, Poland, was opened three years ago. It started from scratch, and its computer and physics labs are particularly poorly endowed. The school needs computers and printers, in addition to lab equipment. Scholarships for needy students are most gratefully received. Address: S. Kazimiera Kowalczyk, M.A., Director, Prywatne Liceum Ogolnoksztalcace im.

Addresses!
We keep getting SR copies back because some subscribers and donors have not notified us of the change of address. Sorry to say so, but the M.D.s are particularly prone to neglect the small task of notifying this Polish journal of their change of address. Please send us your new address promptly if you move, and remind your friends to do likewise. Thanks.
Correction
In the previous issue, we incorrectly identified Zbigniew Herbert's Hermes, pies i gwiazda [1957] as his first volume of poetry. It was his second. The first was Struna swiatla [1956].
