* CLAB (Celtic League American Branch) Membership about $20 includes
_Keltoi: A Pan-Celtic Review_ ($6 if ordered seperately), the
quarterly magazine CARN, and the CLAB newsletter _Six Nations
One Soul_ . Celtic League American Branch, P. O. Box 20153,
Dag Hammarskjold Postal Center, N. Y., N. Y. 10017
Warning, danger, some of the news articles in _Keltoi: A
Pan-Celtic Review_ and _CARN_ might be political.
* Guide to learning Celtic Languages from CLAB $5
CLAB holds meetings where you might find some assistance in
