This paper reports on the Futuristic Priorities Division members' recommendations and priorities concerning the impact of the future on communication and on the speech communication discipline. The recommendations and priorities are listed for two subgroups: The Communication Needs and Rights of Mankind; and Future Communication Technologies: Hardware and Software. The considerations of the groups range from individual cellular psycho-physiology, through considerations of space age computers, to the amplification of space travel and intergalactic explorations. Also included is an appendix containing a preliminary annotated bibliography of educational futures; a sample list of sources concerning the future; a future oriented recreational exercise; and an article, "Future Communication Technologies: Gaining an International Data Base," which discusses the concept of an organization for retrieval and evaluation of international research data in the study of human communication.
