To the editors:

I have recently been shown your article “Children of Vietnam” (December 7), wherein a visitor questions why certain maps are labelled “Indochina” rather than “Vietnam.” The maps in question were installed in the early 1930s and never updated. We are aware of the problem and have been working on re-labelling the entire hall. New maps are being drawn up now, and will be installed in 1991.
