Notes: This version has NOT been spell-checked/reviewed since it was scanned. If you have corrections to report [or would like to volunteer to spell-check a section], please contact webmaster@hear.org. Also, it is realized that many of the even-numbered pages have distorted text on the first line of each page. This is due to a (seemingly uncorrectable) problem with our scanner. At a later date, it is hoped to replace these pages with better-formatted images (and searchable text for these lines). However, this is a very labor-intensive process, and it may be a long time before this happens (if ever).
Thanks to the Pacific Cooperative Studies Unit (PCSU) (in particular, Dr. David Duffy) for allowing the contents of this document to be made available online; and to the authors, editors, and publisher for their efforts to publish these proceedings.
