96101                  Our Readers Respond 
     In January, we asked readers to answer the following questions and 
mail their responses back to us.  Our goal was to determine how informative 
and valuable "NEWS BRIEFS" is to readers; whether and how the information 
in "NEWS BRIEFS" is passed on to other interested Presbyterians; and what 
feedback about "NEWS BRIEFS" our readers wished to give us. 
     The Presbyterian News Service thanks the 421 readers who responded. 
Below is the tally of those responses.  In addition, a staff retreat has 
been scheduled for early April in which the narrative responses will be 
discussed as we plan for the future.  Once again, thanks for the help, and 
whenever any reader has any question or comment about "NEWS BRIEFS," please 
call, write or E-mail us.
