Blasi Gutierrez); and (5) "The City of Goteburg" (host for the next conference) (M. Fagberg). Attachments include greetings from J. Zapasnik of the International Union of Local Authorities and P. Mauroy of the Federation Mondiale des Cites Unies and Villes Jumelees. Lectures presented include the following: (1) "Why We Talk about the Educating City" (P.
