Suharto made the statement In a report to the country's highest policy-making body, on his government's policies in the iast five yoars.

Another .worker, John Don- nelly, told of overcoming a blind woman's reluctance to accept help and finding letters that had piled up for over a month and never been read. Organizing the program has cost Mr. Mehnert money.
