    Letter to the Editor


    Thanks for an excellent "house journal" in Ferminews. But I cannot let you get away with letting BABAR carry our national flag upside down in your cartoon on the last page of your Feb. 16 issue!

    You correctly drew the asymmetry in the placing of the diagonal red stripes on the diagonal white stripes. But every good UK Boy Scout knows that the broader white strip on the longer side of the rectangle which is closest to the flagpole should be uppermost! Check with your local Brits.

    I believe flying the flag upside down is an international sign of distress.

    Best wishes to all, Graham R. Stevenson, CERN


    Dan Kaplan The Illinois Consortium for Accelerator Research (ICAR) is a group of five Illinois universities that are working together to create new particle accelerators and accelerator-based experiments for the future. ICAR encompasses the two Illinois-based national laboratories, Argonne and Fermilab, and five universities: Illinois Institute of Technology, Northern Illinois University, Northwestern University, the University of Chicago, and the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. The last issue of FERMINEWS ("Tollestrup Looks Beyond the Next Step," Vol. 24, No. 3, Feb. 16, 2001) incorrectly omitted IIT and substituted the University of Illinois at Chicago. "IIT is the lead institution in ICAR, IIT's Tim Morrison is the Program Director, and it was IIT's lobbying and organizational efforts over two years that brought the consortium into existence and got it funded," said ICAR Principal Investigator and Fermilab experimenter Dan Kaplan. Ferminews regrets the error.
